So I’m not really looking forwards to any drama coming out this week (thank goodness because there are already too many lakorns out there I want to watch), so instead I wanted to point out some posts I’ve seen that are interesting to us drama lovers.
I’m going to be busy this week and possibly next week finishing up projects and updates to my other blog so unfortunately won’t be getting to blog about the newly released lakorns until later on. Hopefully, this will give you a good idea on where to go to find more posts on lakorns and more reviews.
- Because of the popularity of Asian content as demonstrated in this article, Netflix is pouring even more money and resources into making Asian content.
- A lot of that will be South Korean of course, but lakorns in particular are gaining in popularity in Asia (see here and here – not in English), and this means more money will go into making them, a good thing if you ask me that should increase the production costs of lakorns, but hopefully also reward good writing, directing and so on.
- Blobofcolour had a post about the rising popularity of lakorns in Singapore here.
- Now sites like Viu.com and Dimsum.my have lakorns that are English subbed. It’s like we have viki back, but unfortunately only certain Asian countries can access the sites.
Drama Reviews, Recaps and Recommendations
- Lovefia has been on a roll recently, taking a look at lakorns like Talay Luang, Mia Jum Pen, and Dao Kon La Duang, as well as doing recaps of a drama on my to watch list, Duangjai Nai Montra.
- You can also catch Lovefia on twitter.
- I love it when fansubbers do reviews of the lakorns they
watchedsubbed, so check out Thippy‘s 2020 Lakorn Recap and Reviews. She did a rant on Rahut Rissaya 2020, which I sorta agree about, but I also liked it more than she did. And I still have to finish the last 3 episodes (I heard disappointing things about them so I’m not excited.😟)
- Want to find more recommendations on 2020 dramas to watch, Chinese dramas in particular? I thought this post by mz4jun was really well made.
- Lakorn Galaxy recently did a Best Lakorns of 2020 list here.
And that’s it for this post. Do you know of any bloggers I’ve missed? What are you favorite go to blogs?
