The Week Ahead
Posted on September 26, 2011
Happy Monday, where productivity and hope for a wonderful new week starts again. This week, we will have the completion of P-N Series (24 parts total), which will end my endeavor to stretch Plerng Toranong. I can finally move on, heck everyone has already moved on, even Mario himself!
Also this week, I will be writing a continued reflection for Roy Mai and Kon Ruk Luang Jai. Hopefully after that, I can find some time to start watching Tawee Pope and Roy Marn. And, let’s not forget Nai Roy Ruk!
Cheers for the week that will end September! xoxo Fia

Happy Monday! I hope you enjoy your list of lakorn; I myself am watching all of those lakorn too lol, except for Nai Roy Ruk. So far so good. Tawee Pope–Om makes the dreamiest Khun Luang ever…<3 and Roy Marn is hecka entertaining! Roy Mai is also making my heart grow for Ateam again. Thanks for the subs Fia!
Good morning! Tuesday for me 🙂 I am enjoying the list of lakorns, albeit a little ambitious. I heard that Om in Tawee Pope is extremely hot stuff lol. I can’t wait to watch it. As far as the storyline, what do you think? By the way, it is so good to hear from you Jjinxx!!
I am happy to see a blog focused on Lakorn. Thank you
I can’t wait to read your reflexion namely on Roy Mai. I like it very much. My only complain is some storylines are not well developed.
I love your blog and your thoughts about Aum atichart who is my fav thai actor.
Keep the good job.
Hi Lilly! Welcome to Romance and Happily Ever After… I’m happy to hear that you enjoy reading about lakorns, I certainly enjoy writing about it. Care to expound on why you think the storyline isn’t well developed in Roy Mai? I’m always curious to find out lakorn fan’s take on any given lakorn. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment 🙂 xoxo Fia
Sawadika ! thank you for your greet
My main problem with Roy mai is the love storylines are still not developed and 8 episodes have already aired. Rerin love story with Suriya has not evolved at all and Rerin’personality and behaviour towards Suriya have not either. Maneerin and Siriwong have not yet started their hidden dating and looking at the trailer for episode 9 it will be centered on Bua Nguern spelling a cast on Siriwattana. I know I complained too much it just that I feel these parts of the lakorn will be rushed.
Except these issues I think Roy Mai is the best lakorn of the year so far. It’s the only lakorn with a fresh storytelling of the lead couple. Indeed they are not the usual bickering-at-the-begining-to-be-madly-in-love-at-the-end couple, be it Rerin/Suriya or Maneerin/Siriwong but at the same time they don’t feel boring because Aum and Aff have indeniable mad chemistry, their acting is good -especially as Maneerin and Siriwong- and the writing is not simplistic. I absolutely love the cultural theme of this show which makes me be interested in everything linked to loom. In episode 8 the weaving competition felt absolutely poetic so, now, I respect people who practice this craft even today. I love Roy Mai because this is not the usual typical lakorn thai people tend to love -see the ratings-but it’s really interesting.
Hi Lilly- I’m not ignoring you! I am waiting until I catch up with this lakorn before I can make additional comments 🙂 Thank you for your elaboration and your personal take on it. I think that Roy Mai is a refreshing lakorn, and I hope that it can make waves throughout Thailand, like the way Jum Loey Ruk did. Go Ateam! – Fia
Thank you for your reply !
I also hope it will make waves like JLR but I think it will be difficult since the ratings are not so great. Some people told me this is not an unusual thing even they have heard people complaining that they don’t understand the language which is a nothern thai dialect. But I am happy because every A-team fans love this show and few of them class it as the best A-team lakorn before JLR so far.
Anyway I can’t wait to read more of your reflection about this drama
PS : I just want to ask you, if you have watched episode 8, what is your interpretation of the “hairpin and ring” scene ?
You’ve peaked my curiosity, so I am off to catch up now! Expect another reflection soon 🙂 Thanks Lilly!
Likewise, I love coming here Fia! My goodness, sorry for the late reply. I don’t know if you’ve had a chance to watch Tawee Pope yet, but I’ll just throw in my two cents ^^
As far as the GENERAL storyline, I’ll have to say that I’m quite a sucker the whole two-worlds/two-time periods destined love. The beginning of the lakorn absolutely won my heart; Khun Luang and Manee had such endearing encounters and his reaction to her was so…idk (lol) his shyness mixed with his clear desire for her to stay in his world was so cute. but unfortunately, it began to lack midway and towards the end. I suppose a lakorn can’t be perfect and oh boy, even a comparison of a remake of a lakorn that I heard was stunning won’t be fair, but I had pretty high standards after hearing such good reviews from the old version. A few of my particular disappointments included the decling (in my opinion) of Khun Luang’s display of affection. OH!!! I don’t want to post any spoilers for you, so I won’t spew forth my discontent, lol. Overall, I actually do like it, though I’ll have to admit, a better part of it is due to seeing Om onscreen. ^^’
Hi Jjinxx! Do you know what I find really difficult? When I’m watching a lakorn and stop half way or at a certain episode without pursuing it until the end and then having to go back and sort of pick up where I left off- it makes it hard to get back into it. Such is the case with Tawee Pope, I watched up to episode seven and really enjoyed it, but I stopped because I ended up starting other lakorns. Now that I find myself going back to it, I’m struggling to finish it lol. I absolutely agree with you about Om! -Fia
