Nice to read another essay sweetie but I disagree on Mint C. Uh she doesn’t look Thai enough. The fact that she’s tall too. Real Thai girls tend to be a bit shorter and maybe a tad darker? She looks like a giant especially if pair with a shorter Kobori. Lol. Mew or Taew are closer choices I would say. If Mark gets chosen yes I agree he needs major classes!Actually we’re forgetting Mint C. She acts so well in Kchai Ronapee as a villager and “chao barn”... she’s very beautiful and can pretty much play Asian or Western. Mint has a versatile look tbh. I’m like digging Mint or Mew atm for Hideko.
I think maybe because I have not fully invested in seeing any remakes so I’m more excited and hopeful that this goes into production soon bc I would definitely like to see a more up to date version of Kookum. And I really approve ActArt! They’re more historically classic and true to the story.
But p’ek is a major hunting game?????? While I really wish for Mark, I do concern his sissy acting lol he doesn’t really seem to be able to convey that stern, cold or leadership character naturally. He’s very fragile and soft, so if he fails to convey KOBORI as a military general, thai fans will probably bury him lmaoooo except for his hardcore fan clubs lol (however it’s almost more important on the pra’nang chemistry too, so that’s another factor that could change KOBORI as a Japanese general.)
Whoever they pick really needs additional acting and specific training with military official roles. You can’t just take act like your normal p’ek role. It would fail!
