Chor Malila (2020) is adapted from a novel and stars big names such as Tik Jesadaporn, Son Yuke and Yam Matira. The English title is Jasmine Bouquet and it’s a past and present lakorn with a ghost in it. Of course!
Synopsis: Poomtai works as a government secretary and he’s assigned to repair an old building located not far from his office. There he finds documents, personal belongings and photographs of Jaokhun Saymamuang and his wife, Lady Pinmuang. He decides to transfer the finds to the museum, but suddenly the spirit of Pinmuang appears and stops him. She tells Poomtai the story of her life. Pin and Jaokhun fell in love with each other, and although there were difficulties on their way, they still got married. 7 years later, Pirath, Pin’s childhood friend, comes back from England. They get closer again, and although Pin is now a married woman, Pirath secretly falls in love with her. Lady Sae, Jaokhun’s mother, dislikes Pin and tries to match her son with Pragai, her adopted child to be Jaokhun’s mistress. Jaokhun does not particularly mind, but Pin cannot accept this situation. Things get worse when Jaokhun goes on a business trip to the province, and Pragai follows him. Considering that her husband accepted Pragai as his mistress and forgot about his wife, Pin seeks confort from Pirath. However, Jaokhun mistakenly believes that his wife is cheating on him, driving her out of the house and divorcing her. The disgraced Pin returns to his mother’s house and stops all communication with Pirath. Later, she dies, but her spirit, feeling guilty in front of her husband, stays in their house ready to forgive him and explain everything.

I’ve just finished Stranger 2, and still feel in a bit of a drama funk, but hopefully this lakorn will change things around. Sunya Ruk Sunya Luang(2020) is a past/present lives drama and I’m all for it. Ngamnet Denkhun (Toong Sanaeha (2020)) pairs with Namwhan Phulita (Fak Fah Kiri Dao) in this Channel 3 lakorn that starts airing October 16, 2020. Muse has it on their subbing list, so it should be English subbed!
Synopsis: A story transitioning between the past and present lives.
The teaser looks really interesting! The lakorn looks beautifully filmed, and I like the special effects too, I’m impressed. This lakorn will air 3 days a week, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 🤞 Fingers crossed it lives up to the teaser.
Finally! The teaser is out for Leh Bunpakarn (2020). Lots of drama! For more pics and info, check here, and here. James Jirayu and Taew Natapohn recently finished filming Leh Bunpakarn, but we don’t yet have an airing date. This lakorn involves reincarnation, mysteries, past lives, romance, and even, marriage?

I took a look at 2019 historical lakorns here. Now here’s an updated look at the historical genre. I included the many lakorns that have a past and present life, as well as time travel lakorns, ghost/horror lakorns and so on. So if you want to see what’s out there, take a look at this list! This is not a complete list by any means, this includes lakorns that are English subbed only.
Kor Kerd Mai Klai Klai Ter (2020) stars Aff Taksaorn and Tor Thanapob. This is Aff’s first lakorn in awhile (I talked more about her career here) and Tor’s first one after the success of Hua Jai Sila 2019, so this is an important lakorn for both of them.
Kor Kerd Mai Klai Klai Ter (2020)synopsis: None available, but it looks like this is about Aff losing her husband, and then he’s reincarnated as Tor Thanapob.

Not a fan of older woman, younger men tropes, just not my thing, but the reincarnation aspect is intriguing and might make this interesting to watch. No word yet on if this will be subbed, and no airing date yet, so watch out for it!
This week, I’m looking at second chances, regrets and missed opportunities. How does that relate to lakorns? Well, read on. But what came to mind for me is that time is the big factor in all of this. Because we can’t stop time or time travel, as we might wish, looking back, we realize so many times we could have taken a better path, or done something different. If only…. I wish….
Reincarnation lakorns are pretty common and are often about revenge. But what is revenge except a regret for a missed opportunity, a way of trying to change things? There are also a number of second chances and time travel in lakorns here. Where can you watch these lakorns? Try here.
