Year In Review – Best 2014 Thai Dramas I Watched


This was the very first year that I had ever watched a Thai lakorn drama. I’ve heard about them several times but I wasn’t familiar with them nor was anyone talking about them that I knew. It wasn’t until early April of this year, 2014 that I started watching my first drama. As I depend on English subs, I found it very difficult to find the currently airing dramas anywhere. In addition, being a new watcher, I didn’t know Weir from Boy or Nadech from Ken. It is because of Thai dramas that I started downloading dramas religiously! It is thanks to Thai dramas that I found Plex Media Server which allows me to share dramas as well as watch these dramas from my InternetTV. However, 27 completed dramas later, I’m already picking my favorite actors and actresses (Go Yadech!!) and looking forward to more! MDL refers to mydramalist website. Here are my top watched 2014 Thai dramas:

Thai Lakorn Recap: La Ruk Sut Kob Fah Episode 03: Competition

Well, this episode was simply AWESOME! The action scenes again, took my breath away! I also see why I and probably everyone else like Channel 7 dramas better. This is now my 3d one and I’m seeing why. What? A real kiss? YES!! Romantic as HELL! Again, a scene that took my breath away.

However, I now understand and sympathize with Mintra. Man, her mother abused her for everything that Mattana did! I felt sorry for watching those flashbacks; however, it has morphed her into a truly evil but smart woman. No one suspects. Very cunning. Very smart. Which is actually the type of female antagonist I like. I hate the screaming harpies!

Yes, I’m loving this drama. At this rate, I’ll be done with all 6 available episodes! WOW! I’m still impressed. Hope you don’t mind, I’m reblogging! I seem to be picking up a lot of Thai lakorn traffic! They must watch this drama and read your wonderful recaps! Thanks. Don’t be surprised if I comment for every episode XD!!

03No matter how Mattana (Min Pechaya Wattanamontree) tells Kamin (Weir Sukollawat Kanarot) that she is not suitable to be the future Queen, Kamin refuses to listen, saying it is not his decision, but the King of Raya’s. Mattana tries to bribe him again, offering 500,000 baht, or even 1 million baht if she is freed from marriage. Kamin tells her that the people in Raya believe that they will find their soulmates during their lifetime, and when they marry, the groom gives the bride one of his earrings, symbolizing love forever. Mattana tells him that this only exists in fairytales and not the real world. Kamin explains that she is only scared of falling in love with the Prince right after she meets him. Mattana’s parents wonder what Kamin said to Mattana, making her so obedient in reading about Raya.

Thai Lakorn Recap: La Ruk Sut Kob Fah Episode 02: Tricks

The Crown Prince (CP) is so immature! I understand him wanting to love who he wants but to put the people around him in danger, very immature. I haven’t warmed up to his character. But what is the Queen’s problem with Kamin? Is he really the bastard son of the previous King or something? What is the deal? Why all this animosity? Sadly, Hareutai is a sweetie with an evil General father. Much better episode! Poor Kamin!!

100% improvement from the last episode! A lot of action but also new questions that need to be answered in this pursuit to prevent the chosen future Queen from making her way to Raya. By her methods and probably those in descent in Raya. Great job and chemistry between Weir and Min! My first drama for both of them!

02Picking off from the last episode, the man pulls out a gun and tries to shoot Mattana’s dad, Thammarath (Trin Settachok). Kamin (Weir Sukollawat Kanarot) pushes her dad away just in time. Kamin and Mattana (Min Pechaya Wattanamontree) chases after the man who just opened fire. Mattana chases at high speed with her car and Kamin with a motorcycle. Kamin throws a ninja star at the gunman, throwing him off his motorcycle. As Kamin and the gunman and his group member are fighting, Mattana arrives to the scene and uses a paintball gun and keeps aiming at Kamin, giving the perfect opportunity for the bad guys to make their escape. Haymon (Moo Poosana Buangam) and the police arrive to the scene and arrest Kamin.

At the police station, Kamin is unable to provide proof that he is a news reporter as he had claimed to be. Mattana keeps insisting he…

At the end of the first ep, I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like this but it got better at the end and ep 2 is looking up!

01A man with a gold mask appears in the open grass field. He is the first to snatch the red flag from all the other competitors. From what people think, he’s Prince Makey of Raya. But, actually he is Kamin (Weir Sukollawat Kanarot), the bodyguard of the prince. The second round of the competition is to fight another bodyguard: the first to point the sharp stick into the other’s heart wins. It is an exciting match. Everyone in the crowd wants to see who is capable of winning. At last, Kamin wins. He receives the golden swords for his victory from King Inthra (Toon Hiransap) and Queen Sawitri (Kaew Apiradee). Upon eye contact, King Inthra realizes this is not his son. General Witoon (Tapakorn Tisayanan) also realizes this is not the prince. Thinking he has completed this mission successfully for Prince Makey, Kamin goes to change, but is challenged by Suthep (Arucha…
