    In case anyone is interested in reading about the reason behind the author, Wimol Siripaiboonwho, who came up with the KooKum novel and the storyline. It’s translated in English in Japan time. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2018/03/27/books/legacy-japanese-romeo-thailand/

    And damn —this game show incorporated all questions of 7/8 versions of KooKum. So freaking tough and cheap that the final contestant loss due to a stupid question asked requiring Japanese knowledge! Seriously, this show shouldn’t be so cheap, the contestant was able to answer everything in Thai, but the final question was $hit! Feel bad for him! (They couldn’t even afford to give him a small stipend or something for making it all the way through.) These contestants have so much KooKum knowledge though ranging from authors to writers to music writers and actors, etc!! Watch if you can understand Thai, no subs! Haha :p

    PS — I am an official KOOKUM fan! I’m a fan of the novel itself! But will always be a true fan to Birds version!!! 555 :angel10::love::icon12:

    I’m still firm on Mario being the most suitable KOBORI. I’m not a Mario fan, I barely have interest in him lol but his whole persona and demeanor carries a lot of the KOBORI traits. I think he’ll do fine, it’s just that I hope I can fall in love with his KOBORI. lol :p :risas3::risas3::risas3:

    I think Mew suits Aung, but I’m worried about her stern/cold face and attitude. I don’t know if she can play a very cold person without being worried about the audience will judge her or not. We’ll see I guess cuz khun Dang I know will have a very BIG say in who should qualify as Aung. Lol :p

    kDang adores Mario and Mark very much. I don’t know about Nadech yet...since I haven’t really heard her praised Na. But for girls— she now loves Taew, Bella and Yaya the most. Also, check her IG followers, the people she follows are limited. Lol there’s only like Ya, Taew, Bella... Margie maybe lol

    But for the guys—- just Mark, Mario, now JamesJi. Maybe she would follow Na if he had an IG account lol :p

    Ok I can see Mario as Kobori (watching the Rising Sun series right now). He'll remind me a little of Bie but He'll be better cus his serious face looks better. Maybe we can have a reunion of Mario and Taew!

    Honestly, I’d prefer new faces Khanatasanan Naktakhe or Sattaphong Phiangpor. Khanatsanan was good in Naree Rissaya as a slap-and-kiss lover, I’d like to see more of him.

    But if it really were to be a famous actor, I think I’d like Toey Pongsakorn or Prin Suparat. I’ve only seen Toey in the Cupid Series, I’d be curious to see him in a tragedy. And Prin is at his best in drama series.

    For Angsumalynn, Benz Nathida would be great. She was just AMAZING in Naree Rissaya as a beautiful rebellious woman and I think she deserves more fame and it would boost her career.
    Otherwise, Mild Wiraporn or Mint Natwara. I know : Mint is more of a nang rai than a nang ek now but when she started, she was a nang ek and she was good at it.

    @Vico aha I like the mention of Mark and glad you think he’s suitable lol but ummm...I hope Off does something instead of trailing us fans on lol :risas3:

    I’m officially a fan of the novel.:thumbup: I couldn’t picture anyone else doing the remake but ActArt so I hope that it will serve its purpose and that this new KOBORI will become my favorite character ever!:cheer::worship2::angel10:

    Benz Nathida will be a perfect to play Angsumalynn and either Mark P or Mark K will be perfect match with Benz N. (A SaiPoo reunion would be nice too):thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    I still can't do another Koo Gum. It hasn't even been more than 5 years and they're planning for another remake. People, you're supposed to wait 10 years! lol Thai ent. drive me nuts when they remake a drama too early. I actually enjoyed Bie and Noona's version. Although Bie's acting could've been slightly better, he did fine. His smile was what made me sane throughout the lakorn. lol Noona played her role well as Ang. She had the perfect Thai look and acting to play her role. If y'all didn't know, out of all the versions, Bie & Noona's version was the closest to the novel. Even the author said so and enjoyed Bie/Noona's version; she even visited the set.

    I don't know who I want to play as Ang/Kobori frm Ch3. I think Benz N. could play Ang well. It's always hard to find the right person to play Kobori.

    Now I know why I am such a big fan of KOBORI bc he’s such an idealistic person and lover!

    Idealistic sample

    When you're idealistic, you dream of perfection, whether in yourself or other people. For example, you might have the idealistic goal of bringing an end to childhood poverty in the world. The adjective idealistic describes someone whose plans or goals of helping others are lofty, grand, and possibly unrealistic.

    :sad6::sad6::sad6::sad6::sad6::sad6::sad6: That’s me and KOBORI!! Lol! Never knew I was such an idealistic person!!! Hahahahaha :p

    It’s okay— it just means we believe in the bettering of the world and others despite how impossible that might be! :angel10:

    OMGAH Benz would be great. I’ve been waiting for them to actually give her a good lakorn. Not saying naree wasn’t good. It was but if she is in this it’ll be great.

    Nadech & Bella would be an awesome duo but honestly this drama is kind of boring so I hope they wont cast Nadech in it. Rather see him in something better & worth while. Js

    Ive never thought of this but what about Sunny Suwanmethanont? He looks like he could be japanese plus he can speak japanese when asked to. In his little mini lakorn thing with kao, he spoke japanese in there. Plus hes a good actor and good looking as well

    Yeah agreed not Nadech, he's already in the movie version. Besides, Kobori dies at the end so I never want to see a lakorn where either pra'ek or nang'ek died. I like happy ending!

    These two are great, but nadech already had his chance in the movie, as for male lead I’m not sure but the female lead i think kao would be amazing one thing I’m worried about act art is a great production one of the best but almost most of their lakorn doesn’t have decent pek no name but recently they have become better with their choices and I think it takes a few more years until we see this lakorn because off pongpat will be busy the new historical lakorn with yaya and tik.

    I thought tik and yayas lakorn got canceled? I have to double check

    No I don’t think so and I haven’t read any news about it yet so I don’t know and for now act art focus only one lakorn at time so they want to finish krong kram then they will focus on the next one but i guess krong kram will finish around November or September if we are lucky ya then they focus on editing maybe then we will see the yaya lakorn starts filming on December or January yup plus act art like to economic means little cheap no shade just notice from their lakorn they don’t have the best studio or productions but still got the best people work for them so this lakorn minium 2 year to start if things don’t change.
