Are you ready to watch this story for the Xth time? 🤭 After a year of wait (they dropped the first trailer this time last year), the latest drama adaptation of manga Hana Yori Dango is here. Female lead is from a poor family who gets accepted into a rich prestigious school out of luck. She bumps head with the leader of F4, a group formed by the four richest families. They bully and leave a wake of unhappy souls around until our heroine confronts the leader, making him smitten with her audacious attitude while she has eyes for his quiet best friend.
Here it is…Thai slowly remaking the popular Cdramas and this time, it’s Boss and Me (杉杉来了); the original aired in 2014 with Zhao Li Ying and Zhang Han. This has been postponed since June of this year so I was surprised to see the airdate dropped so fast. It is based on a novel written by Gu Man. Original Synopsis: Feng Teng (Push Puttichai) is a rich heir and the president of a giant conglomerate. He has a younger sister, Feng Yue, with a very rare blood type. Therefore, he recruits Shan Shan (Aom Sushar), who shares the same blood type as Feng Yue, into the company to be a blood donor. Interesting anecdotes occur when Feng Teng intentionally tries to fatten up Shan Shan, who loves eating. As Feng Teng gets to know Shan Shan, he discovers her innocence and kind heart beyond her clumsy nature, and falls in love with her. [Credit: Wiki]
Ah, another remake! Prince Turns to Frog was my guilty pleasure watch as a teenager so I’m weary of all remakes. Lol. The cast looks good but since I’m not a lakorn watcher, I don’t recognize any of the cast. XD To refresh your mind, our female comes from a small island and our male lead is your typical businessman who would like to make a resort out of her home. She accidentally runs him over and he loses his memory. They live together for a while and slowly develop feelings for each other. But he is not a single man. His fiancée continues to look for him while his good friend takes care of her (ahem). Once he recovers his memories, what happens to the makeshift family he has formed?
Got a wind of this remake from a fan and just wanted to post about it. Yes, yes, yes, an adaptation of Hana Yori Dango has been done to death in the last two decades but it doesn’t look like it will stop anytime soon so let’s just see what’s what of this version. I really do like the vibes the main actress gives off!
Tentative air date is next year…so…. watch this trailer slowly. 🙈
Looks good. The Thai Remake of Korean series You Who Came From the Stars has cast Matt Peeranee and Nadech Kugimiya as the leads and they had a costume fitting yesterday and both look amazing, especially Matt Peeranee, she’s feisty and those eyebrows – they slay. Filming is due to begin in October!
Ah, Kim Hubby’s drama, You Who Came From the Stars, gets a Thai Adaptation, securing actor Nadech Kugimiya and Matt Peranee in the leading roles. Interesting, to me the original is totally owned by Jun Ji Hyun so it will be a challenge for another actress to top or come close to her perfect performance as the famous starlet who lives next door to our male lead, a 400-year old cynical alien with super powers. I don’t know much about Thai dramaland and a quick google tells me both of the Thai actors are under 30! So young despite their more mature faces.
Based on a Korean manhwa Goong, Princess Hours is getting an adaptation from Thailand! Don’t know about everyone else, but I think Thai has a knack of remaking dramas successfully, like Full House and It started With A Kiss. Goong is not my favorite Kdrama or anything close, but it is to many people, including my mom. That woman, she loves everything I don’t. Lol.
