Yes, yes. I know finally this post is up. Initially I had plan to write a big post when I had complete my big 50 but I thought that was just going to make the post even longer so I decided to split the two up. I know we’re in the middle of February right now and 2019 was like a month and a half ago but whatever. You’re here reading this so let’s dive in.
Looking back at the lakorns I’ve subbed in 2019, I must say how the heck did I manage to get through some of these lakorns? We started the year with the most confusing and WTF lakorn, Nang Rai. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I suggest you go watch that lakorn or read my review on it. What’s more surprising about it is that Now won Best Actress for that lakorn at the recent Asian Television Award held in The Philippines. I like Now and she always does so good in her acting. So acting wise, she deserved that award in my opinion and congrats to her but Kaewalai was just the stupidest nangek I’ve ever come across haha. Either that or the script was badly written. And since we’re in the Now subject, 2019 was also a year that fans got to see her a lot because she had three lakorns that aired, Nang Rai, Huajai Look Phuchai, and Duangjai Kabot. All three subbed. If you ask me which one of hers did I like most? Um…I don’t know actually but my heart wants to go towards Duangjai Kabot. 2020, so far Now has Mae Bia with S Kantapong which I won’t be subbing nor watching because I don’t like anything snake even though I know CG will be involved. If it was a genre on Naga, I’d probably consider. Now if you’re wondering why nagas over snakes even though they’re from the same slithering family, don’t ask. It’s difficult to explain.
Another thing that stood out for me was the genre comedy. I did so much of this genre last year that it made me want to avoid it this year if I can possibly can. Don’t get me wrong. Comedy is good if you’re watching it but subbing it, it’s tiring. Because you really need to be creative with some jokes and idioms. I guess that’s probably why you don’t see a lot of this genre being subbed because no one wants to tire themselves except for TP I guess (Ha!) The lakorn in this category was Rak Jung Aoey, Pleng Rak Pha Puen Taek, Poobao Indy Yayee Inter, Por Krua Hua Pah, and Sapai TKO. My favorite in this category is between Rak Jung Aoey and Pleng Rak Pha Puen Taek. Poobao Indy was good too and heck got the highest rating for CH7 last year. And speaking of which, if you didn’t know already, there’s going to be a movie sequel called Love U Coke Ekerng coming out June 2020. So if I can get a hold of the movie, I will sub it.
I know I didn’t write a review on Sapai TKO and also Rong Tao Naree is because I didn’t receive enough feedbacks for those lakorns so I’m not going to waste my time reviewing it because my time was well spent on subbing it already. I think that’s what I plan to do from now on is if I don’t receive some feedback then I won’t give any in return, unless I feel I really need to say something regarding that particular lakorn. Plus there’s the fact that I’m lazy too. But my quick thoughts on Sapai TKO. We have I think one of the cutest couple in the Thai industry and I was hoping for some real kiss or even lip to lip touch bc we all know Pattie does not do real kisses and I thought maybe, just maybe, she will do one with her bf and boy was I disappointed. We got nothing. Only cheek kiss! #Boo Rong Tao Naree could have been executed better but I think four stories was a bit much for them to focus on at once. It felt rushed towards the end too. My favorite couple was of course Dr. Nam and her young beau Kan hehe. Ticha should have never gotten back with Athip. I also like Oun and Sikhorn too. And I sure do wanna know if Pete will ever stop his player ways hahaha.
So for 2019 if I have to quickly rate my least favorite is definitely a tie between Por Krua Hua Pah & Payak Rai Sai Salub. Most favorite, of course Pleng Rak Pha Puen Taek. Most surprising lakorn is probably Tiwa Sorn Dao. Everything else was in between LOL. I don’t want to dive into details of every single one is because I did my review on them already and I am lazy!
