Hello all, I felt the need to check in again with what’s going on in the subbing world since I’ve been having a whirlwind March and haven’t had the time in a while to watch any shows. Well, that’s not true. I’ve been watching a lot of kdrama thrillers, like Kairos, (eh…) and 365: Repeat the Year (loving it). With subbing group Muse’s site going down permanently, I realized how much I depend on them to watch lakorns. They had a great site. We’ll miss YOU! But more on that later. Hopefully, I can get back into the watching game, there’s so much I need to catch up on!
But anyway, we don’t say this often enough, but much love to all our fansubbers out there!!! I know firsthand the hours of work that go into timing, subbing, encoding and editing videos. It’s hours for a little 20-30 minute bit of video oftentimes. I really don’t know how they do it and do it so well and so speedily. Many thanks to all of you out there, and that includes the whole timing, editing and encoding time as well as you subbers!!! 😘
By the way, I don’t post about cable/digital dramas being released on GMM youtube channel, but they do English sub their lakorns on a regular basis, so I urge people to subscribe to their channel to keep up. With the fansubbers, it’s more unclear which lakorns will be subbed and when, so I think it’s more important to focus on them.
- I do want to address the controversy of Mia Jum Pen (2021), but I’ve only watched the first 2 episodes (which I enjoyed) and didn’t feel I could address it properly since I didn’t have the time to watch it. I do want to continue watching it, but will I write about it? I don’t know, I feel like I’m wayyy late to the table. Anyway, Lakorn Galaxy talked about it in this post and great rant 😅 here by EL.
- Well, if you’re still in the mood for a trainwreck, this drama‘s plot seems like it’ll be all over the place, possibly in a good way, possibly, no must likely not, lol. I watched the first two episodes and it’s not really the trainwreck I thought it would be. It’s short too, always a bonus.
- Maybe not the first Thailand drama about love during the COVID 19 pandemic, but one of the latest, Virus Wai Love: Nakrob Chut Kao (2021) is currently subbed by Fansub TH047 @FB.
Subbing group Muse made an announcement a couple of weeks ago that they had received a DMCA take down notice that was closing down their site and they weren’t going to reupload them. They were great subbers, and very prolific ones as well, with these lakorns and more on their site: The Prince Who Turns into a Frog (2021), Voice in the Rain (2020), Wong Wien Hua Jai (2021), Talay Luang (2021), and Mia Jum Pen (2021).
I didn’t realize how much I depended on Muse to watch lakorns, as their site didn’t cause tons of ads/pop-ups to appear on my screen. Yeah, I use adblocker, but to watch on some sites you have to watch on video players that have all sorts of adware involved. And the performance of some sites worked better on my computer than others. I had planned to watch Duang Jai Nai Montra (2021) on Muse’s site, but now have to look for other options. It’s being subbed by CatAttack now by the way.
Muse is not the only channel either that appears to be affected, as 1fanthailakorn also received copyright news against a lakorn they were subbing. There are more official streaming sites that offer English subbed lakorns now then when Muse started years ago, such as youtube channels like GMM, Netflix and streaming providers Dimsum.my and Viu you can get in some Asian countries (not in the US unfortunately), but that still leaves a lot of lakorns unsubbed. Hopefully, we’ll get more choices soon, but in the meantime, we still have many other fansubbers, so thank you all!
Thippy continues to English sub the lakorns Wong Wien Hua Jai (2021) and Talay Luang (2021)). She also started subbing lakorns World of Himmapan (2021), a fantasy lakorn and Mae Krua Kon Mai (2021), which is already stroking my writing fires. Why does a so called ugly person have to have darker skin? I can almost see a blog post write itself.
Mae Krua Kon Mai (2021) – Lomdao is supposed to marry Balam, but she refuses, since she’s never met him and doesn’t know what he’s like. So she disguises herself as Fai Dam, the Balam’s family’s new cook. Balam soon becomes suspicious of her and It’s just a matter of time before he discovers she’s his fiancée. Slowly, the two fall in love.(Source: OhSweetHaven)
World of Himmapan (2021) – Pim must travel to Himmapan Forest, the holy land, to find “Ulgmanee” to help her sick adoptive father But when it comes to Himmapan Forest, which is a parallel world, it is not easy. Pim had to ask for help from Krit, a young hunter who had come back from the Himmapan Forest once. So both of them have to dabble together. (Source: Channel 3 Thailand)(Source: MyDramaList)

Both Ingjun and Marin are accepted as accountants. Songkran made connections between Saeng and Ingjun and came up with a plan on how to get his hands on that piece of land.

Soon, she willingly signs over the rights to that piece of land her father had given to her. She was able to come to this decision because of her rocky relationships with her own father. After Songkran obtains proper documents, he leaves her. Ingjun was devastated. Furious, Ingdao wants to take revenge for her younger sister who tried to commit suicide along with getting their land back.
