Are You Ready?
Posted on June 27, 2012
..for the highly anticipated lakorn? One that kept teasing us of its scheduled premier date, yet left us waiting and waiting?
I hope it is not in vain. We shall find out Friday, June 29th.
I’m talking about Torranee Ni Nee Krai Krong (entitled in English This Land Is Our Land, which further reminds me of a song I sang as a child, “this land is your land, this land is my land, from California, to the New York Islands..”- Americans may know this by heart, and now it’s probably stuck in your head. You’re welcome.)
The premise of the drama surrounds a dutiful son named Arthit who came to prove to his grandma what he is made of, essentially to atone for his father’s transgressions. But his major challenge is not so much grandma herself, but the beguiling granddaughter, Darunee, who is overprotective of her grandma’s affections. Meaning, she does not take lightly someone who will threaten to steal the attention and love away from her. You can read the full synopsis from the fabulous Wishboniko who will be subbing this drama.
Clearly the most anticipated aspect of this drama is the fact that this is the third collaboration between Nadech Kugimiya and Yaya Urassaya. As far as I’m concerned, they can continue to film lakorns together forever. Their fanbase would probably agree- if you have time you can even read the 100+ page thread at Asianfuse. Or you can visit the official Facebook page for Torranee, listen to live themed songs at Inwlakorns (which is on repeat on my iPod..), or merely type in Nadech and Yaya on YT for the myriad of videos dedicated to this duo.
Finally, what can you expect from me? A few months ago, the majority voted Torranee to be my next recap project. I still may pursue this, however, it will not be at the speed of my recapping days with Plerng Toranong. I may even steer more towards themed posts- much like the ones I wrote for GRGR. Heck, even I’m not too sure yet, whatever strikes my fancy or inspires me while I’m watching Torranee.
Whatever the case may be, I am ready.. I will be watching.. and spazzing.
