Sometimes Fate Plays Tricks – Chapter 4

“I’m telling you, Kira, it was crazy! I rarely meet anyone of importance at work; I usually just submit my artwork, and then see the finished product.” Mila was curled up on her pink chintz couch with her phone pressed against her ear. A half-eaten pizza was haphazardly propped atop a pile of magazines on the glass coffee table. She reached down for her orange juice glass, and her hand clipped a blue glass candy dish. A bit of juice sloshed on her sweatpants. “Rats! Hang on a moment, Kira. I have to put you on speaker phone.” She placed the phone on the kitchen countertop. Read the rest of this entry

Deja View III: More Familiar Locations!

Yok Lai Mek - Kat's biological father's house

This is from Yok Lai Mek in 2009. It’s the only time I’ve seen it.

This is an list that includes some older lakorn sites such as condos and garden houses, but also the new Majestic Mansions to add to the White or the Brown/Yellow list.  I’m sure some of these newer locations will be popping up in future lakorns! Read the rest of this entry

Deja View II – Brown / Yellow Lakorn Houses

This time, I’m going to delve into a myriad of brown / yellow houses used for Lakorns. The orange-roofed yellow house used for Suparburoot Chutathep appears to have been used only for this 50-episode series, but others should appear more familiar.

Suparburoot Chutathep

Has it really only been in one lakorn??

Serious Business of Content Theft

Hello fellow readers.

I want to alert everyone regarding the newest cyber-bully in the Asian Drama World.

ZKPop has been caught plagiarizing from various other recap and SK drama / music sites, including Dramabeans and AllKPop, as well as several smaller fanblogs such as DramaJJang.

Even worse, they are trying to cover it up by changing the time/date stamps on their posts to make it seem like they wrote it first.

I ask all those who appreciate the recaps of our hard-working fans, to neither follow these lying thieves on their social media platforms, nor go to their site. Thank you.

Shuk

Deja View: Lakorn Locations with White Houses

Ah, there’s nothing like a palatial white house, with a huge columned port chochere, a sweeping staircase, and a beautiful fountain just outside the double-door front entrance. Sound familiar? It describes the majority of locations for filming in Thailand. 

Samee (front of main house)

This one was used in Punya Chon Kon Krua (2012) and Samee (2013). The big bronze bull is the giveaway.

For those of use who are avid lakorn watchers, it sometimes becomes confusing when you are watching several shows that appear to be filmed in the same location. Here’s seven of the ones I found in duplicate. For most of these, I don’t know the exact location of these properties, or if they are public or private buildings.

Feel free to let me know if I’ve missed any lakorns associated with these locations!

Thanks, Shuk.

Sometimes Fate Plays Tricks – Chapter Three

CHAPTER 3

An hour later they were able to laugh it off, especially since the fruit ahjumma gave the offending pineapple to Jung-dae as a thank you. He idly tossed in one hand as they entered Mila’s office building. “Well, that was an adventurous lunch,” he quipped. She grinned and brushed his bangs aside to look at the red mark. “As for this, I’m going to cut it up as punishment and EAT IT’S SOUL.” The last was said in a mock-evil voice that made her giggle. He resumed his normal voice. “If it’s bruised, that may not work, though. Then I’m left with making daiquiris. Care to join me?” He wiggled his eyebrows and she laughed harder.
