The first gentlemen – M.R. Tharathorn
Posted on March 13, 2013
Are you ready for some bromance? The next stretch of our weekend installments is the Gentlemen Jutathep Series (Supaburooot Jutathep), channel 3’s biggest project to date, where 5 producers and directors collaborate to create a period drama about 5 brothers.
The first story of the series is Khunchai Tharathorn (M.R. Tharathorn) starring Grate Warintorn and Pream Ranida, directed by P’Num. Grate plays Khunchai Tharathorn Jutathep, a nobleman who is the eldest of the Juthatheps, and he decides to take on the burden of a promise made by his noble father, who wants one of his boys to marry the lady of Thewapob’s family. He’s a professor, the n’ek is one of his students. Although, about 60% of the storyline takes place in the forest, according to Pream- so I’m not sure how I feel about that- not to mention the subplot of the main girl masquerading as a man. Despite it all, there are elegant and glamorous shots of a period where gentlemen are still valorous, and the ladies are complete with class.
This little gem is coming to us this Friday, taking over the cute Pon Prom Onlaweng timeslot, and perhaps will be able to make the fans miss Dr. Pathawee and Tanyong less. Who’s on board?
