Another shorter selection of 2020 actions lakorns for me to talk about when compared to 2019, so I’ve included both english subbed lakorns (only the best) and some unsubbed lakorns that should be subbed (uh, maybe). I’m putting here action lakorns that had lots of action, but also couldn’t be put in other genres such as comedy, horror or historical. I looked at trailers too to see where the lakorn belongs. You’re welcome!
I put all the 2019 English subbed lakorns in part 1 and if they were not subbed, but sounded interesting, or different and should be subbed, they were part 2. So you can check out these posts to see what you may have missed out on in 2019. So 2019 action lakorns part 1 here, part 2 here, 2019 comedy lakorns part 1 here, part 2 here, 2019 drama lakorns (slap n kiss included) part 1 here, part 2 here. 2019 historical lakorns here.

Reasons it’s interesting? The trailer looks good and the synopsis. The director Oliver Bever is an old hand at action lakorns, having directed 2019’s Insee Daeng, and Kularb Kror Petch (2019) which also starred Es Kantapong. Preaw Tussaneeya is the love interest who also worked with Es before so a lot of reunions within the cast and staff which can be a good thing. This lakorn is still airing, but it is being English subbed by Thippy .Trailer above
Jark Sadtroo Soo Hua Jai (2020) – Jett is a handsome man forced to become a hired gunman because of his dark past and problems. And one day, he is hired to kill a woman. It was suppose to be a simple job, however, it is complicated by the fact that his target, Sophita, is his ex-girlfriend’s sister. This leaves him with only two options. To either protect Sophita or to kill her. What will he chose? (Source: Collin Hypercuz and Wandering Queen at MyDramaList
Reasons it’s interesting? A lot of people have loved the chemistry between the two leads,
Aum Patcharapa and Mik Thongraya, but at 19 episodes, it better have a tight plot, or there will be lots of filler! It is English subbed by Muse and Neko. Trailer above
Singha Na Ka (2020) This drama is based on the writings of Seal Writer Mala Khamchan, and is directed by Chatchawan Watthamon, who holds this title. Singha Na Ka is a story of young people who have the magic power to be occupied.
On one day, there was a very greedy scientist who discovered this magical power and meant to take possession of this world alone. So young energetic youngsters such as Haha and Nana have come out to stop this scientist. And to save the world not to fall into the hands of the villains. The mission is to stumble upon the love story. Make sure to make sure that you have the right one.
The scientist led by Mantra brought science and technology to use as a tool to take over the world. Haha and Nana have to use magic and tactics that are trained by the top teachers to protect the world. Haha is like water because he is calm, but Nana is like fire, because he is stubborn and impatient. But both of them are like the perfect mix because they help each other. But the friendship came to a breaking point when Katie came into their lives. The love issue is so aggressive . To fight alongside protecting the world. The brand is inventing a tool by using scientific technology that can make him dominate the world. But to destroy the tool is only one way. It is the magic power of both Haha and Nana !! Finally, Nana will cooperate with Haha to protect the world or not to watch.
Reasons it’s interesting? So the twist here is there are magic powers and most of the fights are done with these powers and a whole lotta CG. Some of the CG in the trailer looks fine, some not so much. It is English subbed by neko. Trailer above.
Dek Seple (2020) In 1977, there’s a fight between soldiers and communists in a village along the border.

Sak helps him out and wants Tin to come to live with him. But once a thief always a thief and this time Tin gets arrested. Sak bailed him out and wishes to adopt him and put him back to school. But it might be too late… (Source: Five Star Production)
Reasons it’s interesting? Dek Seple (2020) is a remake of a 1996 lakorn, and I thought the trailer was very emotional and dramatic. Too often in action lakorns, the story or relationships take second place to the action, but there seems to be plenty of story here. And drama, lots of drama! Trailer above.
Roy Pah (2020) – The story is about a ranger who stands firm on his ideology against illegal logging, even if it makes him arrest the father of the woman he loves. His love life is ruined when he’s framed of killing her mother, and he needs to prove his innocence to get her back. In the meantime, she ends up engaged to the heir of a millionaire just to spite him, but she doesn’t know that the guy plans to build his resort on a forest. (Source: MyDramaList)
Reasons it’s interesting? Honestly feel like I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel here. Cuz really there aren’t a lot of options and this lakorn had half way decent trailer and stars BigM Krittarit and newer actress Kessarin Noiphueng I’m not familiar with at all, but she does seem to have decent chemistry with BigM. Trailer above.
Singh Sang Pa (2020) Male lead used to work for the baddies. After he retired from the group, he returned to his hometown only to find out that his family members were killed. He later joined a thief gang lead by female lead in order to fight the baddies. They both had a bad past with the bad guys lead by Anun Amarin who is actually his brother-in-law.
Reasons it’s interesting? Ok, wait a minute, now I know I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel. Cuz that trailer was laughable, what is it with blatantly fake wigs? Spend some money or do something to make it less obvious! Jeez. Anyway, this has a female gang leader. Yep, you’re welcome. Well, it also stars Louis Hesse and Pinkploy Paparwadee Chansamorn. Trailer above.
