What’s Next? Remember You (2021)

Another kdrama remake. Remember You (2021) airs August 16, 2021 two days a week and should have around 24 episodes. This lakorn is a remake of Hello Monster (2015), and stars Paopetch Charoensook (Social Syndrome (2018)), Kemisara Paladesh, Aun Witaya and Tawan Vihokratana. The teaser certainly looks dark and mysterious enough, lots going on in it. This lakorn is coming to Netflix, so yeah, I’m definitely planning to watch this.

What’s Next? Irresistible (2021)

Hmm. Irresistible (2021) is rumored to be coming to GMM25 on August 3, 2021. This lakorn will definitely be full of angst, revenge and tragedy. A remake of Roy Ruk Raeng Kaen (2015), Thanat Lowkhunsombat (U-Prince: The Badly Politics) and Aom Sushar are the ill fated couple in the lakorn. This role makes is a departure for Aom Sushar, as most are used to seeing her in more light hearted romantic fare such as Full House.

Synopsis: Kimhan and Mookarin were engaged to be married but a tragedy destroyed their happiness. Mon, Kimhan’s sister, was found dead and her husband Tada, Mook’s brother, was accused of killing her. The case went to court and Tada was acquitted with Mook taking the stand as her brother’s alibi and Mon’s death was ruled an accident.

Kimhan was furious that his sister’s killer walked free and that Mook lied to help acquit her brother. If the law could not punish Tada, Kimhan will do it himself, so he vowed to get revenge. He actively persecuted Tada and broke off his engagement to Mook. In pursuing his revenge, he caused a lot of pain to Tada, Mook and other innocent people.

Yet, through it all, neither Kimhan nor Mook could forget their love for each other. They were filled with conflicting feelings of love, hate, revenge and loyalty as they, and the people around them, get caught in Kimhan’s whirlpool of revenge. ~~ Adapted from the novel “Mia Nok Hua Jai” by Chalalai.

Thursday’s Teaser: The Mind Game (2021)

More. More. More. Another Thailand lakorn with a pra’ek with special powers, this time it seems like our hero can read minds. The Mind Game (2021) stars Bank Thiti (Bpai Hai Teung Duang Dao) and Peak Pattarasaya (Leh Ruk Bussaba (2018)) and will air June 14, 2021 on channel GMM One, so it may be english subbed.

Synopsis: When he became a suspect in a robbery case, he had to do everything he could to prove his innocence. Meet a young man with special powers and his special team to go out and pursue real criminals! (Source: MyDramaList)

The nang’ek looks older the pra’ek here in the above teaser. But there seems to be two pra’eks, the other one is played by Oab Oabnithi and he looks good in the 2nd teaser, paired with Patty Phetii I believe. This lakorn seems based on an older one called Chit Sanghan (2002). I like the poster and this might be interesting, so we’ll see if it gets English subbed.

Tuesday’s Teaser: Boss and Me (2021)

And the boss-employee lakorns keeps on coming. This time, a remake of the popular Chinese drama, Boss & Me (2014)! Aom Sushar (Mr. Lipstick (2021)) and Push Puttichai (Happy Birthday (2018)) star in this boss falling for his employee and likewise storyline. Nothing special, I gave up on the Chinese one as nothing much ever seemed to happen, but maybe they’ve upped the angst here (at least the teaser seemed dramatic enough.) Food plays a big role in this lakorn as their relationship started through lunch boxes, so lots of food scenes too. It starts airing June 2, 2021 2 days a week on GMM 25 so it should be English subbed, if not on youtube, then it is being subbed by Viu.

Synopsis: The Story of Namkhing, a new graduate who has come to work at Fah Prachanakun Company, with Payu sitting on the podium as CEO. Namking received a hotline from the hospital to donate blood to Payu’s beloved sister. And this is where their relationship begins. Finally, how will the love story between a young CEO and a young employee end? (Source: Valentina at MyDramaList)

Tuesday’s Teaser: Song Sanaeha 2021

So I know I’ve talked about this lakorn before, but it finally has an airdate and everything!!! Song Sanaeha (2021) is one of those high profile lakorns that’s getting plenty of buzz, thanks to the star power of the main couple, Kimberley Voltemas (Dung Duang Haruetai) and James Ma (Klin Kasalong), not to mention it’s their much anticipated reunion (they both starred together in 2016’s Piang Chai Khon Nee Mai Chai Poo Wised! This twin lakorn starts airing May 5, 2021, two days a week on Channel 3. It will be English subbed on Viu, we’ll have to see if anyone else picks it up.

If you can’t see the teaser, here’s the link. And there’s a great ost song here.

(Warning; possible spoilers ahead)

A remake of a 2005 titular lakorn, Song Sanaeha (2005) starred Aum Patcharapa and Vee Veraparb. I looked to find more info about it and discovered this thread here. Apparently, the pra’ek Warit is divorced in the 2005 version and nang’ek (the good twin) Pit is something of a tomboy who promised her dad to protect her younger sis (they’re twins so…. lol!) and she does so with her fists. Her younger twin Duan is a bit of a mess, a famous actress who was in relationship with rock star and got pregnant from him but aborted the baby. Warit encounters Pit first of course and they even kiss, and there are the usual misconceptions/mistaken identities, but apparently he knows from the 2nd episode who is whom. Thank goodness they don’t drag that out. Of course, Duan tries to get in between the couple as she throws her sister under the bus (she drugs her and sets her up to be raped), but there’s a happily ever after ending and Duan ends up dead I think? That is not that unexpected an ending, a lot of twin lakorns seem to have only one twin left alive by the time they end, since the bad twin would probably end up in jail otherwise.

It remains to be seen how much the 2021 version will copy Song Sanaeha (2005), but at least we have some idea of how the plot turns out.

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)

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.

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.

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: Ku Kaen San Rak (2021)

Well, Ku Kaen San Rak (2021) looks to be a lot of fun. This remake of a 2011 lakorn that starred Aum and Chakrit has the English title of ‘My Beloved Enemy.’ The lakorn airs February 21, 2021 on Channel 7. Main couple this time is played by Mookda Narinrak and Micheal Pattaradet, who starred together in 2019’s Suparburoot Jorm Jon: Maturot Lohgan and most people loved them in that so it’s no wonder they look so natural together. No word yet on if this will be English subbed, but we do have lots of Mookda fans out there so hopefully someone comes through.
