Good for you. Im not fond of the original too. However The original to me is incomparably better than the thai version in the way it was made. It was polishly well made and everything were very much in place like typical kdrana. All the korean A list stars did a great job down to the minor characters. All the minute details from clothes to hairstyles fit each character to a t. Though an iconic kdrama the original isnt realy one of my favorite kdrama. But to me ithe original version compared to the thai remake because of the lack of originality in some areas that should have been geared for thai audiences instead opted to have copied everything from the original makes this version looks like a cheaper imitation.I'm enjoying this Thai version. I don't really like the original. Nadech performance/interpretation of his character, as an alien is the best for me. I enjoyed lot of other scenes too more than the skinship like the interaction of Achira with Fharada's brother and mother.
Though One can tell they did put some big budget into this remake. Acting wise,
Nadech opted not to copy the original. And matt did. It didnt quite work for her she looked animated and overacting and very annoying character. JJH can do annoying to be adorable. Because JJH is extremely beautiful and can look innocently adorable. But it didnt work for Matt. Only the annoying came across with her acting and many were already annoyed with her to begin with. Nadech put some humanity in his role. His reasoning was he lived with humans so he would have some human traits. And though there really is no right and wrong in playing an alien. I think i would lean towards the original portrayal of the character by KSH( i dont really like him though) but he did it in what would many perceive as what we typically know how an alien would be. KSH had no sense of humor nor did he laugh as far as i know. Not much emotion in his face so he had that mystery of what an alien would be.
