I saw this a while back on Lovefia’s and Blobofcolour’s site, and found it quite interesting, so here we go (although I’m still a Thai lakorn newbie here):
How did you start watching lakorns?
I’ve mentioned this a while back. I was in on vacation, in China. There was nothing to do, and we started flipping through channels on the TV. And I stumbled upon ‘Kha Khong Koon’ starring Pong Nawat and Noon Woranuch. At that time, I thought it was just some Chinese drama, until I saw Thai lettering, and realized it had been dubbed in Mandarin. This started my journey with Thai lakorns. Up to date, I have fully completed ten lakorns, while skimmed through a few others that I might go back to when I have time.
Your all time favorite lakorn?
As of now, I would say Nangfah Gub Mafia. There was enough comedy, action, and romance, all at the same time. Weir and Pancake also had great chemistry, in my opinion.
Your least favorite lakorn?
I would say Duang Jai Akkanee, probably because I had a lot of expectation for it after watching Thara Himalaya, which came before it. But, there seemed to be an awkwardly mass amount of commotion. I could not even bear with it until the end, and had to take a break from it before continuing with the series.
Your favorite lakorn OST?
“Glai Bpen Ruk” (subtheme for Roy Lae Sanae Luang) by Mac Weeradon Wangcharoenporn. I started listening to it when I was skimming through the series, fell in love with it, and then it just happened to be on repeat, whether it was on Youtube or when I was on the train. Keep in mind, I had no idea what he was singing. It was simply a good tune and a good tone.
The last lakorn you watched?
The last lakorn I ‘skimmed through’ was Nak Soo Maha Gaan, but the last lakorn I ‘rewatched’ was Nangfah Gub Mafia because I wanted to write a summary on that and I forgot most of the details.
What lakorn are you currently watching?
Not any at the moment, but I do plan on watching Ngao Kammathep or a Weir Sukollawat lakorn soon.
A lakorn you looked forward to but disappointed you in the end?
I would say Duang Jai Akkanee because it just got to be too messy towards the end.
A lakorn you started without expectations but loved it in the end?
I would say Wanida. After Jam Loey Ruk, I just wanted to watch more of Aff, so I stumbled upon Aff and Tik. And surprisingly, they were so cute! Their costumes were nice and elegant. Aff was just a mischievous young lady, but stunning, and Tik was shy to show his emotions, but still a gentleman. The plot was nicely laid out, and I’m sure viewers loved it as much as I did.
Preferred lakorn type (revenge, slap/kiss, boran, romcom etc)?
I’ve never watched a boran genre lakorn. Who knows, maybe when James Ma’s new one comes out. But I have watched different slap/kiss and revenge dramas. So I’ll prefer revenge with slap/kiss.
Favorite male/female character?
Ram (Weir Sukollawat) from Nangfah Gub Mafia. That poor guy didn’t realize he fell for Maekala until the very end. But then he was able to pull his act together and confess.
Least favorite male/female character?
Harit (Aum Atichart) from Jam Loey Rak. I felt bad for Soraya (Aff Taksoarn) the entire way through. He was always threatening and so violent! I’m glad he received his ‘punishment ‘ at the end.
A lakorn character you’d like to be friends with in real life?
Maekala, from Nangfah Gub Mafia. She keeps saying she won’t help her friends, but at the end, she is still too kind not to help them.
A lakorn character you’d marry in real life?
I’m unsure for this question.
Lakorns are full of psycho villains. Who makes your blood boil the most?
Lita from Roy Lae Sanae Luang. She has no respect for herself and others. All she wants is money, money, and more money. She uses people to get to her goals. Pure evil.
A lakorn character that is most like you?
I don’t think I’ve watched enough lakorns to find a character like me.
Most memorable lakorn confession?
Ram to Maekala (Weir and Pancake), from Nangfah Gub Mafia. Ram tells Maekala that he can’t live without her annoying him and yelling at him so perhaps that is love.
Most memorable first meeting of the main couple?
Krao and Nuch (Weir and Mai Davika), from Roy Lae Sanae Luang. Krao helps Nuch escape from the loan sharks, and finds himself drawing out Nuch at night, but only to find she is his enemy’s daughter.
Favorite lakorn ending?
Nangfah Gub Mafia. I was glad they reconciled in Korea, where they had first met unintentionally. It reflects how much they have gone through since the beginning of the lakorn. Both Ram (Weir Sukollawat) and Mekala (Pancake Khemanit) are able to express how they really felt to each other.
Top 3 couples in a lakorn?
Ram and Maekala (Nangfah Gub Mafia), Krao and Nuch (Roy Lae Sanae Luang), and Prajak and Wanida (Wanida).
Top 3 actor/actress pairing?
Weir Sukollawat and Pancake Khemanit, Weir Sukollawat and Mai Davika, and Pong Nawat and Tangmo Pataritda
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my fellow readers out there!
