Krong Kam (2019)

Category: Lakorn

Episodes: 19

Genre: Historical, Romance, Drama, Family

Production: Channel 3

I did not watch Krong Kam while it was on air, I decided to watch it because I saw its trending on Twitter and the rating was pretty good. As it took place in 1967, you will see that Thai’s culture in the past was much different from now. You will perceive a new perspective of the prostitute that they are not always bad. When I watched it, I really understand why someone decides to do this job even it does not except in Thailand. Moreover, Krong Kam reflects many issues that still exist in Thailand such as arranged marriage. Some episodes made me sad, happy, or crazy at the same time and I could not stop watching it. Thus, no wonder why Krong Kam received lots of positive feedbacks.

In Family We Trust (2018)

Category: Lakorn

Episodes: 18

Genre: Mystery, Drama, Family

Production: Nadao Bangkok

In Family We Trust is a mystery story of Jira-anan family, the rich Thai-Chinese owns a chain of hotels worth a billion baht. A breaking point occurred when Prasert was shot dead in his bedroom. Leading each family member to suspect others about a crime. This drama was very popular during that time on social networks. There was a trend “Who killed Prasert”. Every episode is quite complicated to predict because everyone has a motive to kill Prasert. This made me crazy because I tried to find out for the crime every week but actually I got it wrong. In Family We Trust, it also portrays the dynamic of Chinese culture that tends to favor sons over daughters. Absolutely, it is true… those scenes are really touched me.

Gifted The Series (2018)

Category: Series

Episodes: 13

Genre: Fantasy, Suspense, Sci-Fi

Production: GMM TV

I would recommend Gifted The Series to the teenagers. Basically, gifted students in our aspects are genius people but in this series is different. In fact, it indicates some education issues in Thailand. For instance, some teachers treat gifted students and ordinary students unfairly. The plot is really suspenseful. The main story is about the secret behind the gifted program. Every character has his/her own episode to find out that the gifted program was not an ordinary program and gifted students are not ordinary genius, they have superpowers. So they have to find themselves… how they struggle because of their ability and how they overcome it? I like how they tell the story for each episode and the relationship of the characters. It will be back in 2020, I cannot wait for season 2!

Love Destiny (2018)

Category: Lakorn

Episodes: 15

Genre: Historical, Romance, Comedy

Production: Channel 3

One of the masterpiece lakorn on my list! I think you guys know this because Love Destiny was extremely popular during that time. The story was in Ayutthaya during the reign of King Narai era around 300 years ago. You will see a beautiful landscape and an awesome CG. It is not just about romance, but it also includes family, friends, historical with a lot of moral value. Actually, I hate study history but now I know the whole stories…  how awesome! This trend made a big impact on the society. I saw everyone talked about it on social networks. Some of them cooked Thai traditional food, wear Thai traditional dress, and visited temples in lakorn. Hence, there will be season 2 soon, do not miss it!!

Project S The Series | Side by Side (2017)

Category: Series

Episodes: 8

Genre: Drama, Family

Production: Nadao Bangkok

Side by side is the 2nd part in Project S The Series. In my point of view, this one is the best of all the parts. I was surprised at how the writer created the story linked to sports (badminton) as a very valuable part of the development of the story and relation. Gym is an autistic boy who loves badminton, and Dong is Gym’s cousin. I really love the relationship and characters. Especially for Gym, his acting is outstanding!! I definitely understand the autism now. Furthermore, the family dynamic is so touching and realistic, every episode made me crying nonstop. For the sports aspect, it was lucky that I like badminton so I was overjoyed to watch it. If you love drama plot, you should not miss this!

Chinese’s Remake Version

Diary of Tootsies The Series (2016-2017)

Category: Series

Episodes: 12-12

Genre: Romance, Comedy

Production: GDH559

Diary of Tootsies has a great plot which represents the story about LGBTQ, friendship of 3 gays and 1 lesbian. Indeed, everyone has their own preference and we should respect as they are. This was my first time watching this genre series, but it was beyond what I expected. It did not only make me laugh so loud, but it also made me ugly cry, made me understand how important of having good friends and best of all it thought me valuable lessons. So if you finished watching season 1 already, do not forget to watch season 2.

Hormones The Series (2013-2015)

Category: Series

Episode: 13-13-13

Genre: Romance,Drama,Comedy,Teenagers

Production: Nadao Bangkok

Hormones is the best teenager series ever!! This series features issues of teenagers in high school such as relationships, sexuality, sex, bullying, family issues, pre-marital sex, rape, abortion, drugs, smoking, and teacher-student relations. The feedbacks were impressive and terrific in every episode while it was on air. That is the reason why Hormones was so successful through 3 seasons. Casting is perfect! All characters have their own episode to tell the story and issues. I strongly recommend you guys to watch this series, especially for teenagers. Even parents can watch it with their kids too, saying that it is the best guidance and explanation to help them when they face those situations.
