Welcome to my Blog! This is my personal space where I will post/share anything lakorn or Chinese series related. I’ve been an avid follower of both the Thai industry and Chinese industry for many years and figured that creating a blog would be a good way of spreading the love. Please note that I have a certain style of translating and my English is no way perfect. I don’t always have the time to proofread my translation either so I apologize in advance for any typos or grammatical errors. If you want to repost my translations, please provide credits and or let me know beforehand. I hope everyone will this get something out of here. Thank you for visiting!
Favourite Genre: You’ll likely find that my taste slightly differs from the majority of lakorn watchers. If something is really popular or well-received, generally I wouldn’t care much for it lol. I really like watching comedy and romance lakorns the most. Life is already stressful as it is so whenever I have free time and I’m in the mood to watch a lakorn, I want something lighthearted and easygoing; a story that can trigger happiness and laughter from me as a viewer. However, I also appreciate a good unpredictable and rational lakorn that portrays realistic aspects of life (Ex. Sai See Plerng). Like any typical avid lakorn watcher, of course I like the dynamics of a revenge/slap and kiss lakorn, to see two strong headed characters develop feeling and burn each other’s walls down BUT I’m not overly crazy about them because they are usually portrayed very unrealistically and sometimes, distastefully with their R scenes. It’s rare for me to come across a good revenge lakorn that isn’t so over the top and is actually enjoyable from beginning to end. For example, Luk Mai Klai Ton with Andrew and Kob was a popular lakorn that is liked by many. The acting was good and the chemistry between the leads was great. However when you really think of it, the premise is irrational. The title means the fruits that fall far from the true, implying that the child is different from the parents but in this case, that’s not true. The Nang aek Rasa should understand the burdens her mom went through and be cautious of inflicting that same type of pain on another women yet she developed feeling for her sister’s boyfriend and caused for them to break up. The praek emotionally cheated on his girlfriend with the nang aek when he was pissed at his mom for abandoning his family. Makes no sense. Or Kluen Cheewit where the nang aek kills the praek’s fiance. Yes the nang aek didn’t intentionally do so but in reality, could you ever bring yourself to love the person who killed someone who meant so much to you? No. As a lawyer, does it make sense for Sathit to use his own power to take revenge? No. Should he have raped the nang aek? No, it was way out of his character to do so. Obviously lakorns can’t be too realistic or else it wouldn’t be a lakorn but there needs to be some level of rationality in it so the drama doesn’t take away from the quality of the storyline.
