2019 Lakorns: Action! Part 1

I’m totally loving how many female oriented action flicks there are in lakornland this year! Kicka** female heroes are my favorite (💗 Linda Hamilton in Terminator) So join me in a look back at 2019 action lakorns that were subbed in English in 2019.


Bangkok Vampire (2019) – Rosarin, a vampire descendent, lost her sister mysteriously, coincidentally as other people in Bangkok disappeared one by one. She uses her psychic power to track down for her sister, joined by Nop, an IT geek who falls for her at first sight.
As the story reveals, the evil vampire boss is collecting special blood for some rituals. His cravings are about to fulfill with several elite assassins under his command. Rosarin needs to fight for her sister or she and Bangkok would be collapsed by the evil vampire.

Reason it’s interesting. Only 8 episodes. Vampires. Powers. English subbed by neko Trailer

Chumpae – A clash of gangsters and villagers in a small Thai village.

Reason it’s interesting. There’s a 60’s or 70’s vibe to the clothes and sets here, which might be cool. But it could also be awful! It is English subbed by dragonlair’s fansub Trailer

Hua Jai Look Poochai (2019) Nop’s life became entangled in a whirlpool of vengeance when he found out that his mother and mother’s friend join hands to kill Nop’s father.

Reason it’s interesting? This teaser. Watch it! Very well done. Everything about it. Except that red mask? It doesn’t really suit Om’s features I think. Which is kinda a big deal, lol, since the whole lakorn is about Om donning the red mask.

Kao Waan Hai Noo Pen Sai Lub (2019) Suam is a mischievous girl who grew up in the slums. She develops a crush on Danurut, a good cop, the first time she meets him due to his good looks and kindness. They met previously at the police station when Danurut helped Suam get out of some trouble due to a false accusation. Suam is then asked to become a spy for the police by an undercover deputy commander named Tuan. His mission is to spy and gather evidence on an influential criminal named Sia Ha. Tuan believes Danurut’s uncle is part of Sia Ha’s gang and suspects Danurut as well. Suam gets involved with Danurut again when he misunderstands that she is Aek’s mistress who is his cousin’s fiance. He hires Suam to be his fake wife to keep her away from Aek and to also help him avoid his ex-girlfriend Suchada who is also Sia Ha’s daughter. Tuan believes this is the perfect opportunity to spy on Danurut so Suam accepts his offer. Suam and Danurut bicker and fight all the time. She moves into his house pretending to be his wife because he needs her to follow his orders while she must spy into him!

Reason it’s interesting. The female lead definitely plays a big role here, at least if you watch the trailer. Reminds me of kdramas like Bad Guys, where we have criminals and cops working together. 12 episodes subbed by neko

Reason it’s interesting. If you watched the trailer, you’ll see that this is very different from the other action lakorns, which feature lots of traditional gun fights, martial arts and so on. This one has a focus on astrology, fortune telling and is about stopping a killer. 24 episodes subbed by Muse.

Suparburoot Jorm Jon series – Two lakorns featuring twin boys on different sides of the law, Suparburoot Jorm Jon: Duang Jai Kabot part 1 and Suparburoot Jorm Jon: Maturot Lohgan, part 2.
