Here’s part 2 of 2020 comedy lakorns. I like going back and looking at what was subbed and what wasn’t. I’m always hoping to find some undiscovered gems that weren’t English subbed. By the way, obviously I chose to cover the lakorns that are interesting to me, and not every 2020 comedy lakorn is covered.
This year, I’ve already done 2020 comedy lakorns part 1, historical lakorns and action lakorns. Last year, 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.
NOT ENGLISH SUBBED
My Precious Bad Luck (2020) – Clumsy Luckkana has always considered herself unlucky. In the hopes of bettering her life, the deeply superstitious Luckkana often seeks fortune tellers. And she believes them unquestioningly. So when a fortuneteller insists that her ex will change her bad luck, Luckkana is determined to find Chokebordee, her nerdy school love. But the ugly duckling became a swan—or in this case a handsome, smart man. He is so transformed that Luckkana almost doesn’t recognize him. When she does, how will their love story continue?

Reason it’s interesting? This has a classic rom comedy plot, so I’m kinda surprised that someone hasn’t subbed it already. The whole ‘ugly duckling turns to swan thing,’ (True Beauty (2020)) the ‘lucky/unlucky plot’ (Count Your Lucky Stars (2020)) both has turned out romantic comedies in Korea and elsewhere. And the teaser looks fun enough, maybe the lack of star power has kept this lakorn from being subbed.
Jor Way Lah Haa Poo Yai (2020) – No synopsis available, but from the teaser it looks like the hero goes back into the past and his modern devices causes all sorts of hilarity!
Reason it’s interesting? This is another time traveling lakorn that is still airing in January. The teaser is pure slapstick, and that’s unusual to have in a time traveling lakorn. Also looks like it might have a bada** female lead, which I like, by the look of the girl in the last part of the teaser. This is a Channel 7 lakorn and it might be interesting if it isn’t too long.
Sapai Rai Sukdina (2020) – No synopsis, but the title is The Daughter In Law so I’m assuming there’s a marriage here and Mom isn’t pleased. Lots of music and comedy in the trailer too.
Reason it’s interesting? Marriage of convenience, comedy, singing. What’s not to like? This is a remake of 2001 lakorn which even had a 2011 sequel so it must have been somewhat popular back in the day. Since it is a Channel 8 lakorn it’s hard to tell if it will ever be English subbed, as Channel 8 lakorns are rarely subbed, and it’s also 38 episodes of 40 min each, so….
