For me physical appearance of the leads is very important when I’m watching a romance focused drama. I guess I’m just kind of shallow lol It’s hard for me to start a romance drama if one of the leads is unattractive. However sometimes if the story, chemistry, or acting is good enough I’ll continue watching the drama. For this particular lakorn, I was so excited to watch it because Nadech and Matt are both very attractive people to me looks wise and it would finally be a new and fresh pairing that I was dying for. However good looks wasn’t enough to keep me on board with this and I dropped it very early on. Besides some good eye candy, this lakorn lacks a whole lot. The chemistry between the leads isn’t good, the acting is eh, and the storyline looks to be boring from all the clips I see on ig. Such a major failure in all departments. Wish it didn’t turn out this way but it’s just so blah.

Yeah good looks isn’t always enough to keep watching something. I’d prefer people with pretty faces but if they freaking suck at acting or simply just can never create good chemistry with their co-stars then what’s the point of watching lol

I guessed I’m in a generation where I don’t feel like having a long hostile discussion in a forum anymore, been there done that. I catch a glimpse of this drama now and then since I like Broadcast work before and this was taut to be ‘the great lakorn’. Raeng Ngao2 was a disaster. I didn’t they can flop more than that then this happen:facepalm:

So I better go lurk somewhere else. Chippy lakorn with Puen is cute, or I just go stay with my Spanish series where the leads chemistry can flame up TV:)

Byebye.
I like Chippy’s lakorn with Puen too. It’s nice and different from a lot of Ch3’s recent lakorns. I needed a break from all the super crazy lakorns and all the time travel and multigenerational lakorns that Ch3 is putting out recently. Puen is grown on me a lot recently.

How's the rating so far? Song Naree has ended weeks ago already. Is there any improvement with this lakorn? I haven't watched any of Nadech's lakorn...yet. Was hoping I'd get this a shot.

Lol. Oh ch3 lakorns are mostly flop. If you want to see some good chemistry, check out Mookda and Michael’s lakorn, ch7 that’s currently airing.
What's the title of the lakorn? I like Channel 7 lakorns better for love stories, or OneHD. Am waiting on Min and Mik's new lakorn. It's a dream pairing for me as a fan of both. Weeee!

watching this lakorn is probably like being in the titanic just before it sank...lol..

If Helen of Troy is the face that launched a thousand ships. Then I think Matt is the face that launch thousands of boycott.:confused12:and this ratings are the result. Names this big shouldn’t have ratings this low no matter how the lakorn sucked in every way. Even if it’s bad acting and editing. The lakorn isn’t perfect but it’s not so bad in editing and acting that it should get a 1 point something rating..Ratings consistently this low ..it’s almost seem like no one watched not even the fans of both actors... it’s getting clearer every episode that this really is a boycott. No ands, ifs, or buts about it.. To think they waited and waited to let the issue die down because she decided to go on a certain path.. But people don’t easily forget I suppose..Matt just didnt back down instead of keeping low profile with that guy, Now not only Nadech but she brought down the entire production. The producer must have wondered if she made the right decision hiring her.. And If only her role is that of a demure and likable character it probably be more tolerable. but no it’s an annoying overacting one resulting in a futile attempt to mimick JJH whos perfect in this role made her even more annoying plus her scandal that people cant stand to watch her.. There are too many if only in this lakorn....if only they edited it right....If only the lead has chemistry....if only it isn’t Matt..if only Nadech didn’t accept this..then it would have saved the entire productiom the trouble of making this remake,

YES promote them! Hahaha. We welcome all. ;)
It's a very entertaining lakorn and I like it as well, plus the leads have good chemistry. The thread is refreshing, viewers FIN the leads and scenes together, and there are daily updates because people are actually watching it. The best part is....there are no haters and random fake watchers :risas3:

I think he's very popular but would not be the best actor out there ( I myself like him a lot). I've watched too too many dramas/Movies from the USA, Thailand, Philippine, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and China. His acting ability is average compare to someone like Sean Penn or Denzel Washington (USA), or Ken T (Thailand) or Yoo Ah In or Kim Soo Hyun (S. Korea) or amir khan (India).
Sorry. But Sean Penn and Denzel Washington are Americans, Nadech is from Thailand. We were talking best actor of Thailand not the world. ,Peoole from their respective counties don’t compete against other countries unless it’s an international nominations, which Nadech was also nominated at one point As well.
Nadech IS one of the best actors and if awards would be the basis then THE BEST In Thailand..His acting is natural though his character has nothing really special ex. autistic or crazy weird characters who likes to cry and scream.,, it’s harder to win in roles that are ordinary because people always think there nothing special about it, But real talent can make It stand out, Nadech did that or he wouldnt have won all those awards.
I’m not sure if you had seen all his dramas, But I was particularly impressed with Game Rai Game Rak where he played a kind light hearted innocent fisherman who fell in love with a stranger then later motivated by revenge evolved into a vengeful charming cunning rich-man. All throughout he was this “ villain” the love and vulnerability of that innocent fisherman , his real character showed every once in a while because of his love for the female lead. He did a brilliant job there. .. Also, I don’t think you’re aware, If you look at his Wikipedia you’d see his wins and nominatioms. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadech_Kugimiya, more than 170 wins by 2018. I don’t think they’re all fake, . He has the most awards in the history of Thailand. If winning many best actor awards in Thailand is not a proof that he is one of the best actor There. then I don’t know how people would gauge their ability as actors. Cause everything can be just opinions and talks of anyone, But these awards are by those who are professionals, Ken T I suppose you mean Ken Theeradeth Wonpuapan of Thailand who is older than Nadech has the 3rd most awards at 65 and Bird Thongchai who is so much older than Nadech had 85 by 2018. Even if you double the awards of the 2nd placer, he still won’t reach Nadechs number of awards...and he’s the youngest of the top 3..lol

l also watch dramas from other countries, I’m from USA,.
But overall England. probably Produced more brilliant actors than USA, K. Branagh , Collin Firth.. and of course the great Laurence Olivier who’s already dead lol Laurence Olivier was multi awarded British stage and movie actor from the 30s . He acts classically on stage plays but he was acting very naturally in movies unlike actors in the 1930s. He acted like how you would see peoole in real ordinary situation,,The height of his popularity was when he made Wuthering Heights,

Laurence Olivier as Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights with Merle Oberon

I think Nadech has that similar natural acting method). He was one of the first legendary actors from the early years. His love affair with Vivien Leigh, known to be one of the most beautiful actress at that time and the lead actress in Gone with the wind was the talk of the town,( it was scandalous) But they were the golden couple back then,

..in America I think Tom Hanks is probably one of the best,

Yes. I was very much impressed with Nadech in "Game Rai Game Rak"! That lakorn made me laugh, angry, fin and cry. I can see then that Nadech Kugimiya is one hell of an Actor, naturally gifted! His potential and versatility (comedy, drama, romance, suspense, action) was already evident at an early stage of his career and my gosh he was only 19 then and his third role/lakorn in GRGR. But he definitely blew me away! No doubt he deserves all those awards he took for GRGR and other lakorns too.

The first time I saw this thread. To be honest I didn't really like Matt Peranee from her looks. I don't know I would prefer another actress to be casted. Someone more beautiful and charming. I never heard of Matt Peranee then, first time (I'm a newbie when it comes to lakorn and I only watched lakorns of NY and their lakorns with other artists and recently I've been trying to catch up with other titles by other Actors like Kimmy, Mario, Taew James Jirayu, James Ma etc.) And then the scandal happened, I don't mean to be mean, as an avid fan of Nadech I won't miss MLFAS whoever is with him. Nadech is doing fine and well in his portrayal of Achira. And yes I would still wish for a different lead actress in MLFAS. As I continue to watch MLFAS, IMO, Matt her looks I think will be more suited as villain and not as a lead actress. There I said it.

Yes. If its 1 or 2 or 3 perhaps even 10 awards. ( actually 10 awards is a lot of awards to happen to be a coincidence or luck :)) But 170 awards. I don't think its appropriate to say he's not one of the best actor in Thailand. As a matter of fact, its very arguable to say he isnt the best because of that.
One doesnt always need to play disabled or crazy and unusal character. But you do need to play your character well. When people watch you they have to forget they're watching or see Nadech playing this character. He has to BE that person. I think if you watch all his characters. Theyre all very distinguished. Example him as Achira and Dawin. You see Dawin and you wont imagine him playing Achira lol and Achiras character is very different ..worlds away from Dawin. ...And Nadech played them both. Even ‘those he played as military Dawin, Ramin and the person in Nakee2 . if You can put them all together in the same scene, They all different characters . He portrayed them all differently,

Congratulations!! you said what many people think but refrain from saying....lol..
Okay, I don’t know many thai actresses. But when I saw Matt ( at that time I didn’t know who she was) First time first impression I saw her, this is my honest opinion. I immediately didn’t think she seem right for the role.. i didn’t think she meets the character requirements appearance-wise. It’s more like she has good form (stance and body) than a beautiful face . To me she has an above average beauty.. But lead actresses usually either has an extraordinary beautiful face or strong sex appeal (which i think Matt doesn’t have).. you have to be likeable..especially on this particular role becsuse the role calls for the lead actress to act annoying.... Though She seem like a good actress ..But I agree her looks seem to fit more for antagonist or villany roles. There is usually something about a person ...something about one’s image or appearance that exudes that. I’m not sure either what it was...when people look at you they just don’t feel drawn to you, instead they feel annoyed, That’s how it felt when I first saw her. When I saw her act it became worse, Having an actress like this to be the heroine. It wont work. Because no one wants a lead they can’t like , And this is just the initial impression.. then she had to act a character that is annoyingly adorable,,, but only the annoying part came across...Then to seal everything she also had that scandal, A heroine who is 1. Annoying to look at 2. had to act annoying 3. Attached to a scandal, ..three swing and a miss,...Strike out. LOL But the producers instead of bailing out decided to ride it out. they took their chance with her. Instead of taking the risk of replacing her midproductiom.
Nadech is probably the only one doing well..and his fans probably makes up the 99% of the ratings, if it wasn’t Nadech I can only imagine what the rating would be,,,it might not even reach 1

I'm sure we all pretty much know by now that awards are not the best indicator of talent. A lot of the times it's a popularity award and we all know it is very bias most of the time. Take Leonardo DiCaprio for example. He's a talented man but the man didn't pick up any Oscars until a few years ago. Nadech is a pretty good actor in his own rights. He's not horrible but I wouldn't say he is the best in Thailand either. Ken Theeradeth may have less awards than Nadech but he is the stronger actor between the two. Professional judge or not, I think most people would agree. And acting is acting. There's no boundaries across countries when it comes to talent. If you are talented in one country, it doesnt change to the next.

People don't even have to compare Thai actors to Hollywood but even compare it to Korean or Chinese industry, Thai actors still come out weaker. People can't judge talent in a bubble if the actor is that good. As far as awards goes, it's like beating a dead horse. Those that saw it as an indication to proclaim the actor is the best or one of the best with so many awards will never change their mind just as us that sees awards being hand out like hot cakes isn't a true evaluation of talent because of the bias that has become so rampant in the industry.

Also about Matt looking like a Villain that's a few years too late lol. As a big fan of Matt (I am neutral on her now lol) I have mentioned the girl is evil or rai looking since her Kuan Kamathep days (so like 9 years ago hahaha). She always has that look like she's ready to slap someone. Especially, her Ka Badin days. She has to play a gentle girl and us fans were worried that she can't have her rai looking self tucked away. With Matt it isn't about looks it's about talent (until she threw all the talent away for a guy). And if me being a fan can see that and admitted to it those that doesn't like her or care for her will definitely pick up on it. Nothing new...lol

Some people wonder why others become well known and others dont.

With leads looks is as important as Talent . Thats what a hollywood oroducer/actor/director once said. The audience have to look at the person and if people cant stand how one look like it doesnt really matter how talented an actor is, youd never get offered many leads if some still offers you the lead, it would be roles that your look catered to. Meaning if you look crazy and they need crazy lead then you might get that part. lol youd also never have many fans and not a lot of people will find you interesting. And as an actor you will only have mediocre popularity and career. Thats just the truth.

So when Tor won and got his best actor award over nadech that one time. . That wasnt an indication he did a great job? By the way i do not think he is better than Nadech and this has nothing to do with awards. In talent and appearance category. Appearence wise he is exuding even weaker presence than Matt. I do think he can act unusual characters but based on his method seem he would be unable to act intense heavy scenes. He has a weak presence on screen. He would seem to do well playing characters that either have weakness or sickness. I think he has limited repertoire. That isnt really what i would call a hallmark of a really good actor.
Also what makes a fan opinion correct over the professional critics? Even if i studied acting i would have to give respect to the judgement of the professional critics. They are professionals.. Rehashing awards isnt an indication of talent over and over meant giving no value to what professionals think. Do we use fans as indicators? But fans will only insist their idols as the best even if professionals doesn't think so or in truth. . Whatever majority think whether the fans or the critics will not really carry any weight to them. Again which begs the question. How then do thailand judge the best?
My opinion is...Thailand like other countries have their own industry. They vote and they give awards. And then on the other end, there are fans who have their own opinions of who’s ”better”. If the industry doesnt agree then the industry is wromg.. In Nadechs case whether voting by fans or professional critics he won. How else can people dispute that? Answer: By using their own individual opinion as basis. But most fans aren’t professionals In understanding the dynamics of acting and what goes in it, their judgement only hinges in what they know they see and most times their opinions are tinged of being biased if they like a particular actors acting, whereas professionals judged the actors on the basis of what they know and experience in acting,
Thats the only explanation for that. Cause how else can the discrepancy be expalined. If majority gave the awards to a particular person. All those people who voted whether fans or critics. Their opinions altogether carries more weight than any individual opinion, right? I mean fans and critics voted 170 times in the span of 10 years and it went to 1 person. Popularity wise Nadech is very popular. and he will win by fans votes if it’s by the fans. However to say that even professionals didnt use fair judgement because someone is popular and in the span of 10 years is an insult to that persons talent.

I also think Ken is a very good actor but I dont think hes better than Nadech. Take for instance in Game Rai Game Rak when nadech was only 19 years old and had to play a strong character a CEO . When he was blackmailed and told by the villain to marry her. His look of anger with his eyes tearing up in desperation. I thought wow he can do complex emotions.. I have never seen Ken portray that kind of intense mixed emotions.. thats only 1 exsmple as illlustration.. I think Nadech is more flexible than Ken. But then again that is only my opinion.just as a person may think Ken is better. So if my opinion is different from another persons opinion..whos right? This is where the critics should come in..however Some might say they don’t agree and awards are no indicator,
