What’s Next? Please Feel at Ease Mr. Ling (2021)

Could anyone really watch all the Chinese dramas being produced? They seem so prolific but maybe I’m imagining things? Anyway, here’s another drama that caught my attention, this time it’s Please Feel at Ease Mr. Ling (2021). I really loved female lead Rosy Zhao in The Romance of Tiger and Rose, don’t know the male lead Terry Liu from My Dear Lady (2020) though. The story reminds me of kdrama Save the Last Dance for Me 2004 with the guy having amnesia and meeting the heroine before going back to his regular life. A Youku production coming to you May 20, 2021, hopefully will be English subbed.

Synopsis: A story of how the ‘rabbit’ brings home a ‘big bad wolf’ follows a young woman named Gu An Xin who chances upon the hotshot executive Ling Yue after he encountered an accident. Gu An Xin picked up a man. At first, she thought he was stupid, but after a few days of interaction, he proves himself to be a genius. As it turns out, Ling Yue got into an accident after being caught in the ugly fight for succession of a powerful conglomerate. With two people so different from each other living together, what kind of relationship will it bring? (Source: ChineseDrama.info) ~~ Adapted from the web novel “I Accidentally Picked Up a President” (一不小心捡到个总裁) by Chun Feng Yi Du (纯风一度).

What’s Next? The Lion’s Secret

A Chinese drama I’ve been waiting for, The Lion’s Secret (2020) stars Zhu Ya Wen (Across the Ocean to See You) as a former soldier and Yang Zi Shan (Never Gone) as a female CEO who enter into a contract marriage together. Billed as an action drama, expect to see plenty of action and romance and this iQiyi production should have English subs.

Synopsis: The story of the lion and the lazy cat follows two people who get married first before falling in love. Mu WanQing is a successful lady CEO and Liu Qing is an unemployed former soldier.

Mu WanQing (Yang ZiShan) and Liu Qing’s (Zhu YaWen) first encounter was on their wedding day. With no feelings for each other, their relationship started out hostile until it turns into one of mutual love and support. Liu Qing helps Mu WanQing resolve the crises in her company while at the same time averting the provocations from her ex-boyfriend.

As their love is severely tested, a bigger challenge rises to the surface. In order to fulfill the wishes of their elders, they start on journey to Thailand. (Source: ChineseDrama.info)

What’s Next? Use for My Talent (2021)

Another lighthearted romantic comedy from China. Use for My Talent (2021) stars Jasper Liu (Before We Get Married (2019)) as the guy with a fear of germs and Shen Yue (Count Your Lucky Stars (2020)) is his employee who doesn’t mind a bit of dirt, lol. Not that special a plot, but I like the actors.

There was a Korean adaptation (Clean With Passion For Now (2018)) of the same webtoon this drama is based on, so I wonder if it’ll follow the kdrama or webtoon? The drama should air May 9, 2021, and is a Mango Tv production, should have 24 episodes, and English subbed episodes will be on Netflix USA.

What’s Next? She Is The One (2021)

So this Chinese drama has a lot going on, hidden identities, fake brides, etc., but I like the cast. She Is The One (2021) stars Tim Pei (Miss Truth) as the groom and Li Nuo (Su Yu (2020)) as the fake bride. The screenwriter is Chuan Tian (Your Highness (2017)) and Chen Shi Yi directed 2020’s Love in Time, which Li Nuo had a supporting role in. The drama already started airing April 19, 2021 and will air 3 days a week. This is a Youku production, should have 24 episodes, and you can find episodes already English subbed on youtube.

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.

Synopsis: Chidtawan go to the jail because was framed for what he had nothing to do with. After get free, he decide to take revenge any peoples who is the cause of this (Source: Thaidramatic_update) ~~ Remake of the U.S. series “Revenge”.

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.

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)

What’s Next? Himitsu no Ai-chan (2021)

I’m definitely in the mood for something light hearted and fun and this Japanese dorama about a tomboy dressing up as a cute cafe maid may just fit the bill. Himitsu no Ai-chan (2021) is based on a manga and stars Taira Yuna (I’m Underage But I’m Not a Child (2017) – cute film by the way) and Sato Kanta (Sweet Tai Chi). This romantic comedy already started airing on Fuji Tv on February 20, 2021 once a week, 10 episodes as usual. Hopefully, some fan will English sub this dorama.

Synopsis: Kasumi “Ai” Aiko is an athletic, tomboyish member of her school’s basketball club. She is very popular among the girls and can even outplay the boys’ team, with the exception of one person—Amano Reo. His skills on the court are only matched by one thing: his popularity. Envious, Ai proclaims him as her rival, and every day after practice, they compare the number of love letters they each received, which always results in her loss. In need of workers, Ai’s brother employs her at his maid cafe called “Spica.” Since she does not appear girlish enough, her appearance is changed with a wig and some makeup.

One day, Reo visits the cafe with other members of the boys’ team. Worried that they will see through her disguise, she tries to hide, inadvertently spilling drinks on Reo. As she is cleaning up after her mistake, suddenly, Reo asks to go on a date with her. After thinking about it, she eagerly comes up with a plan for revenge—she will make him fall in love with her and then dump him.

What’s Next? Girl2K (2021)

I’ve talked about this lakorn before, but now it’s finally airing! Girl2K (2021) stars Aom Sushar (Full House) as a 2000 year old woman trying to end her curse by falling in love with 1 of her 4 suitors, who are played by Off Jumpol (Girl Next Room: Richy Rich)), Fiat Pattadon (The Gifted: Graduation)), Toy Pathompong (Girl Next Room: Motorbike Baby) and Utt Uttsada (Chun Cheu Bussaba). Girl2K (2021) is airing Febrary 17, 2021 on GMM on Wednesday and Thursday. GMM may be English subbing this, as they sub some of their series and it has an English subbed trailer, so fingers crossed!

If you can’t play the video, here is the link to the teaser here. And you can find a song from the ost here. The trailer is a mix of comedy and drama, with a hint of tragedy here and there that it’s hard to tell what exactly the end result will be, whether it will be more comic then dramatic or vice versa and blend them successfully, but irregardless, I’m glad we’re getting more unique storylines and plots from Thailand.

Synopsis: Momay is two thousand years old. For centuries she has never aged, never gotten sick, never died. Having tried hundreds of methods to kill herself over and over again and always failing, Momay finally sees a ray of light at the end of the tunnel when her friend Krateng, a fortuneteller, tells her that she will be able to age and pass on if she finds the love of her life within the year. The problem is, there are four candidates. Thawin—her hardworking and generous boss, Khun Prom—their company’s biggest client, Kampun—a sweet young man—and Moo Tod—the dashing new guy. Four candidates and one year to find the love of her life. But who’s the right one? (Source: Soju at MyDramalist)
