What’s Next? Song Sanaeha???

I feel like I’ve been hearing about this lakorn forever! I mean, they finished filming Song Sanaeha last year, and there’s been numerous rumors about this lakorn airing soon. And yep, there’s another rumor going around now that it’s coming ‘soon.’ No idea what that means exactly, but hopefully this isn’t another false alarm. This is one of those high profile lakorns that’s getting plenty of buzz, thanks to the star power of the main couple, Kimberley Voltemas and James Ma, not to mention it’s their much anticipated reunion (they both starred together in 2016’s Piang Chai Khon Nee Mai Chai Poo Wised!

Song Sanaeha is an upcoming Channel 3 lakorn that is a remake of a 2005 lakorn about twin sisters and the one guy they both love. Not a big fan of the twin lakorns, but I do like the cast well enough so I might check it out. Muse was going to sub it, they’re gone now, but I’m pretty sure another subbing group will pick this up although no airing date has been announced yet.

Synopsis: Two twin sisters, so similar in appearance, but so different in nature, go through life in different ways. Duen is a capricious model and actress, she’s not considerate of anybody’s interests and feelings. Pit, after the death of their parents, takes care of her sister and constantly helps her. While Duen was in a scandalous relationship with a rock musician, Pit met Warit, a worthy young man who first was confused by the twins, but soon realized the difference between them. By a strange coincidence, he turned out to be the nephew of Duen’s new lover. Duen, tired of the elderly uncle, switched her attention to the nephew. And the more he resisted, the angrier and terrible her tricks became to quarrel the lovers. (Source: MyDramaList)

Tuesday’s Teaser: Ubaat Rai Ubaat Ruk (2021)

I’ve been in something of a lakorn slump, drama slump really for the last couple of weeks. Haven’t watched much of anything, except some youtube videos. However, Ubaat Rai Ubaat Ruk (2021)) seems to have some potential, the love story between a boss and his secretary, but there are secrets that can destroy that love story. The lakorn airs April 4, 2021 on Channel 3. Main couple this time is played by Mo Monchanok (In Time With You) and Masu Junyangdikul (Pom Arthun (2020)). This should be English subbed by Thippy, so yeah!

What’s Next? Revenge Lakorns and More

There are really no upcoming lakorns that I’m super excited about, but there are a couple airing that feature ‘revenge’ as the main theme, so I’ve decided to make a post about them! You’re welcome, lol.

Plerng Prissana (2021)

If you can’t play the video, here is the link to the teaser here. Of all the lakorns I list in this post, this is the one I’m most excited about. It stars Om Akkaphan, who may not be the greatest actor, but he often has great chemistry with his co-stars, who in this case would be Sammy Cowell. This Channel 7 lakorn airs March 29.

Synopsis: Top’s aunt has him execute revenge against Rinlada’s family due to what happened to his mom in the past. He plans to ruin Natee Farm, her family’s business. He also gains her trust and makes her fall in love with him. Later he finds out he’s just another chess piece in his aunt’s plans, and a birth secret is revealed. (Source: MyDramaList)

Barb Ayuttitham (2021)

Barb Ayuttitham (2021) airs March 22, 2021 on Channel 3 and it stars Boy Pakorn and Gina Yeena, hmm not bad. But it also stars Bomb Tanin, maybe as the villain? That… will certainly challenge Bomb’s acting skills. The trailer is all action, which you can watch here if it’s not showing below, but this MV does showcase the sweet moments between the couple.

Sweet Revenge (2021)

Sweet Revenge (2021) is billed as a romance, but that synopsis suggests that it could easily veer into thriller/horror territory. I’m hoping for a thoughtful, heart touching look at love and loss of love from this Fuji Tv production. The Japanese dorama airs March 22, 2021 on Monday, should be the usual 10 episodes. You can watch the trailer here if it doesn’t show up below.

Synopsis: Mariko who seems to have no luck with romance but is actually the president of a company named Sweet Revenge which helps their female clients take revenge on men who have dumped them in cruel and harsh ways. (Source: MyDramaList)

What’s Next? Sapai Jao Sua (2021)

Sapai Jao Sua (2021) is a remake of a 2010 lakorn of the same name. It features my favorite trope, marriage of convenience, so of course I’m interested! This is going to be on Channel 3 and stars Ohm Kanin, Prim Prima (Mia Archeep) and Prim Prima (Sai Tarn Hua Jai). This will be released on April 7 2021, airing five days a week on Channel 3, and at least this lakorn is on Neko’s English subbing list so it should be English subbed.

Synopsis: Tien, a Chinese-Thai business tycoon and his wife, Liu had four sons – Traipob, Traitep, Traipoom , and Traiwit. Tien had planned his sons’ lives from what they should study to whom they should be married to without caring about their willingness. Traitep got married with Ruengrin and Traipoom got married with Wallapa, while Traipob who was very religious, chose to stay single.

All of Tein’s three sons helped Tien in his textile business but Traiwit, the youngest son, didn’t want to be like his older brothers. He decided to become a policeman, and left his home to move to the North-Eastern part of Thailand. There, he met Fahsai, the country girl who was a developer of her hometown. Traiwit didn’t reveal his identity at first, so Fahsai thought Traiwit was trying to trick people in her hometown and didn’t like him.

Traiwit was transferred back to Bangkok, so he hired Fahsai to marry him and to help him fight against his father. He brought her back home to try to make his dad accept what he wanted to be. Tien couldn’t accept Fahsai and tried every way to get her out of the house with the help of Ruengrin and Orn-nisha, the girl that Tien wanted to match up with Traiwit. Fahsai had to strive to win Tien’s heart, while she and Traiwit started to have real feelings for each other. (Source: MyDramaList)

Sapai Jao Sua (2020) has a little twist, a disapproving father instead of a villainous mom. Honestly, how many dramas are there with this trope? I oughta make a list about it. The Chinese Tycoon’s Daughter-in-Law is the English title, so I wonder if the Chinese heritage will play a part in the new remake. Here is the link to the teaser if you can’t see it above, and here is another teaser too. Also, this mv shows a lot details from the show.

Tuesday’s Teaser: Road to Rebirth (2021)

I’ve had my eye on Road to Rebirth (2021) for awhile now, only it wasn’t called that, it was called Romance With the Star (2020) and seemed like yet another modern cdrama about a celebrity and common person falling in love. It stars Jerry Jia (Pushing Hands (2019)) as the celebrity, and Ivy Chen (Love is in the Air (2018)) becomes his personal maid. The teaser has a fair amount of drama and angst in it, so it looks to be comic lite. Hopefully, this will be English subbed as the trailer is from Yoyo’s channel, so you can catch this airing on March 17, 2021, 7 days a week 😲.

Source: Yoyo’s English channel Click here if you can’t see video.

Synopsis: A story between celebrity and a neighborhood girl who becomes his manager. Because of her cousin, Sun Xia Ai is swayed into accepting the job to become a personal maid for hotshot celebrity Su Xing. After spending day after day together, Sun Xiao Ai discovers a side of Su Xing that nobody knows – he helps children with their schooling, reaches out to sick fans and would rather take a hit in his own reputation in order to protect his younger sister. Sun Xiao Ai finds herself falling for Su Xing and chooses to stay by his side even as his star has fallen out of the limelight. Together, Su Xing and his new manager Xiao Ai decide to make a comeback in the industry. (Source; ChineseDrama.info)

Celebrities falling in love with an ordinary person is a pretty common genre, look at You’re Beautiful, Soot Sanaeha, Full House, Touch Your Heart, Payakorn Sorn Ruk and so on. However, this cdrama also has the hero recovering from some sort of injury that lands him in a wheelchair, so that is a little different. The teaser is all over the place really, and I don’t understand what’s going on, but because of my love for all the dramas above, I’ll probably will try this out.

What’s Next? Truth or Dare?

Another day, another marriage drama. Chinese drama Truth or Dare (2020) is a historical costume drama based on a novel about a couple of girls who step into the wrong carriage. It stars Teresa Li (My Classmate from Far Far Away), and Huang Jun Jie (Dr. Cutie) and should have 34 episodes. They released a trailer some months ago, but no news of a firm airing date of now, but I’ve waited to talk about this drama and didn’t want to wait longer.

Synopsis: A story that follows two couples who mistakenly find themselves in a marriage they never expected and gradually grow in love and trust over time. The cheerful and clever Xiao Wanzi grew up as a street performer with her dad selling their special skill of breaking a big stone on the chest. An unexpected encounter utterly changes Xiao Wangzi’s life. Xiao Wanzi who neither knew how to read nor write suddenly finds herself becoming a princess. Opposed to marrying the princess, Mei Sanshao pushes Xiao Wanzi away in hopes that she’d willingly retreat. Meanwhile, the king has arranged a marriage for Lu Yingyao, the daughter of the 9th prince. However, bandit Xiao Baoye mistakenly takes her as his wife.

Truth or Dare (2020) is the remake of 2001 Chinese drama Wrong Carriage, Right Groom (2001), which I’ve heard praised by a number of people, but unfortunately it’s not English subbed (there are a couple of subbed episodes on Youtube, but that’s it). This is a Mango TV drama and since they have a lot of their dramas English subbed on Youtube, hopefully this will be one of them, so check it out!

What’s Next? Let’s Fight Ghost (2021)

I might be mistaken, but I think this is the first Thai remake of a kdrama airing this year. Let’s Fight Ghost (2021) is a remake of 2016’s Bring It On, Ghost (2016). Our ghost busting team consists of Saint Suppapong and Orn Patchanan. This is going to be on Channel True4u production, which is well known for their many kdrama remakes, some good (Full House) and some bad (Princess Hours). This will start airing today March 3, 2021, two days a week, and it also will be a Netflix release (not sure what regions though), so hopefully it will be English subbed.

Synopsis: A cohabitation comedy about a ghost of a high school girl who has been dead for 5 years and an exorcist college boy with the ability to see and hear ghosts. What he’s discovered over the years is that he can touch them and fight them off, so when he’s in need of a part-time job and can’t find one that pays well enough, he starts putting ads online as an exorcist for hire. His ad: “Will face off with your ghosts. Chances of winning: virgin ghosts 80%, bachelor ghosts 40%, child ghosts 97%, the rest 50%.” One night he goes out on the job and faces off with a schoolgirl ghost, and during the fight, they accidentally kiss and sparks fly.” (Source: IMDb) (Source: MyDramaList)

Tuesday’s Teaser: Borderless (2021)

There’s a rather intriguing upcoming mystery Japanese dorama coming soon called Borderless (2021). I really love the mood and lighting in the teaser and the whole aesthetics of the dorama and even the cover poster. With 4 separate stories that are somehow connected to each other, this is very much a girl centered drama, look at this main cast list: Morita Hikaru, Hayakawa Seira, Watanabe Risa, Hamagishi Hiyori, Endo Sakura, and Saito Kyoko. The dorama starts airing March 7, 2021 on dTV, and hopefully someone will English sub it.
