I've only read little bits of the book that fans have been posting on social media but I might start reading it when I'm less busy cuz I'm gonna need something to do while we wait for the fitting and when they start shooting, seeing as we won't get much bts. Speaking of the book, it was printed for the 10th time about a week ago:cheer: A quick timeline to include stuff that hasn't been posted yet:

13th of June: NY are announced as the leads

15th of June: Groove Publishing makes a post with Mor Pongsakorn (the author), saying they have 2,000+ copies of the book as they recently printed it for 8th time
http://instagr.am/p/Byuv1OqFiik/
21st of June: just under 100 copies left
http://instagr.am/p/By88cK-lMqU/
23rd of June: The author's books are in the top 5 in the top paid category on Meb (an app & site for e-books), with Lai Kinaree being in the top spot
http://instagr.am/p/BzCmzS2lnqI/
29th of June: less than 10 copies of Lai Kinaree left
http://instagr.am/p/BzSFeQtFiFS/
3rd of July: Lai Kinaree and the other books in the series are best sellers on Meb
http://instagr.am/p/Bzb-zjAlhgr/

So in the space of ~22 days, with no fitting and only the leads announced, Lai Kinaree was printed two more times :eek::cheer:



Ch3, Groove Publishing, Mor Pongsakorn etc right now :risas3: :

Now if Ch3 and everyone involved in making this could just give us a good lakorn, it would be much appreciated :):):):)
Is the book translated in English?

Is the book translated in English?
The book is almost 500 pages I doubt they'll translate it into English with only a handful of interest but I think if some inter fans made a petition who knows lol maybe if the number was really high... but tough. But since I've read the book, I don't think it's worth all that because to me the book is meh and the writing is very dry it's not that fun a read I'll give it like a 6/10 lol... and most importantly I won't want to read the book, enjoy it and have a certain expectation of it and then be disappointed that the production did something completely different. It's best to just understand what the plot is which I think a summary was already provided in the earlier pages. I do want to clarify, even tho it might be different in the actual lakorn, some misconceptions about the characters. Some Thai fans have described Luang In, Pudsorn, and Robert's relationship like it's a love triangle but it's really not. There's no tug of war for her... Robert had a crush on her but he never pursued her. He's only significant because the murder is of a European sea captain and in those times, if there's some issue with a person of another race who's not Thai, it'll be dealt with within the European's ways and laws and the Thais will stay out of it. But in the plot, Pudsorn is the one who wants to and get's to analyze the corpse for clues on who and why this person was killed but technically she isn't allowed until Robert is the one who appoints her to do so and does many things to help her get access to the corpse coz at one point she had some obstacles with access and eventually there are other obstacles to get to other clues. On Pudsorn's end she doesn't crush on Robert either she just thinks he's a decent and respectable person and she's grateful for his kindness. The dynamics between Pudsorn and Luang In is a bickering one coz he's like any man in those days who thinks medicine isn't a place for ladies and he belittle's her with this in their first meeting... which is when Robert stepped in and allowed her to analyze the corpse here... so since this part, Luang In is annoyed that Robert always protects and defends Pudsorn... and she seems to always be with Robert so Luang In get's annoyed and jealous coz Pudsorn always defends Robert who's another guy and also a European. At first Pudsorn and Robert investigate together and eventually Luang In joins... there is a sense of urgency with solving this case because if they don't hurry up and solve it, the Europeans can make up a lie and say that the murder was committed by a Thai person which will give the Europeans a reason to go to war with the Thais. Plus Luang In kinda hate's Pudsorn too coz her dad wasn't able to save his wife when she was sick. So that's their dynamic. The forensics part, also a little over hyped. There's no crazy forensics in here it's quite basic but they try to hype it up as if she's a really smart doctor. I think the more interesting thing is why the dead captain is wearing the Thai dress that's only owned by royals and the clues are given by other interesting characters who the leads are related to. I liked this part that's related to the investigation but I do think the reveal in the book was a little on the weak side lol

So that's just the basics... the rest of the details are and aren't interesting but in the end I think it's best to save and wait and see what Act Art does coz I think it's gonna be mostly different. At least we all better hope coz it needs it trust me. I will be THRILLED if they changed a bunch of things in the plot and some personality traits of the leads. If Thai fans sees some kinda love triangle in the book and Act Art decides to play that part up, I think they should think again because they added that for Raknakara and they got bashed hard for that lol bad storyline and it wasn't even in the last version lol Especially when the main plot is a murder mystery ... the type of audience who'll like a love triangle and murder mystery won't be the same so they need to decide which audience they want and go with it in their script. But they def need to develop the leads love story more coz they do get engaged and it came out of nowhere lol The reason why they got engaged was weak at best. And I think they def need to make the investigation part a little more thrilling. Especially when there are so many shows like that they need to try to be at that level.

i think having nadech and yaya is one major change in itself. :naughty2: and i believe a great step in the right direction. for the rest, we can all just pray and hope for the best, and for one that will really appeal to almost everyone that ratings will go through the roof & make a phenomenal/historical one for ny :cheer:

hi. does anyone know if a digital copy of the book is available for sale anywhere? even no subs. thanks! ;)
Best way is to download the app first then you can do a search and buy the book.


I also recommend downloading the sample of the second book because this book also has Luang In and Pudsorn. The first few chapters shows them with their son and newborn daughter. I didn't buy the book yet coz I think they won't appear much but the sample has a couple of scenes with them and I think the sample is worth a download.

Thanks Mel. The story sounds kinda boring to me. I hope they change things up.
I think the foundations of the plot is ok it's not a terrible plot just the writer isn't good. He doesn't know how to write in a way that's suspensefu and some of the plot really isn't unique but I think the writing team for the lakorn version can make it more thrilling. The writer she wrote DJA, Toranee, Klin Kasalong, and she also worked with Act Art in Krating which I enjoyed A LOT. So if you're familiar with some of her works, you can gauge the potential of the lakorn version. I would actually describe the leads in LK as Fai and Jeed but in period setting, they have really similar personalities and even the part that pra aek used to have a lover who died due to nang aek's relative is similar.

One major thing I would change in the lakorn version is I would change them from getting just engaged to getting married lol so we get a bed scene lol. It's like Rising Sun I don't know why they only got engaged when they can go all out and just get married plus Luang In was in a rush to marry her anyways lol The reason also doesn't make sense why they had to get engaged. Luang In was recovering at her hospital which is basically an extension of her house and they thought it looked bad coz it wasn't appropriate for him to spend the night at her house when he wasn't a relative or engaged to her... but it shouldn't have been an issue coz he was a patient! lol but the writer wrote this as a means so the leads got engaged. It happens often in Thai novels and lakorns that the leads finds a reason to get engaged or married but I think Act Art needs to write a new scenario to make it more credible why they get engaged or end up having to live together for a greater reason. And the book it's funny, Pudsorn was annoyed he rushed to ask for her hand in marriage and she yelled at him for it but he said, but you still didn't reject me ahhahahahhaha what's also annoying about this part, the writer didn't even really write out a scene when they got engaged it was an after thought. The scene basically just started coz Robert came over to Pudsorn house to share some news with her and found that their engagement ceremony had just ended. Like what the hell. That's why this book isn't really worth buying or translating lol Out of 500 pages there's only like 20 pages worth translating lol

I don't know if any of you have seen Korean drama Tamra Island...the story of Luang In, Pudsorn, Robert sounds a little similar...If they are able to make Nadech look the part of the hottest Luang during ancient times...I'll watch this. lol

Yeah hopefully they get married in the lakorn. I still haven't even read the summary of this lakorn. I just know that it's about mystery from your post. I'm going to have to go back and read about it. Is there barely any gook gik scenes? I just want lots of pranang scenes and less annoying characters.

Since I heard the reception of the book was quite good, I thought it was well written, but based on your opinion, it's not. What a disappointment. I was hoping finally NY could have a good script. Let's hope that the scriptwriter can weave some magic.

If it takes the whole lakorn to just solve 1 murder case, is it too draggy? If out of 500 pages, there're only 20 pages worth translating, that means there is not much romance in the book? Uhmm, so many questions.

I think LK is kinda overhyped kinda not... it's a niche type of storyline so it makes sense it doesn't have mass appeal. It's popular I guess within its genre but it's not thaaaaaaat popular to mass readers. For instance it did well enough before NY were announced as leads that it was already re-printed 8 times. Compared to BPSW that one before it was made was reprinted 25 times lol But that one has more romance so it's not comparing similar stories where one did better than the other but just to show that it was VERY popular compared to LK which is respectable it got reprints at least most don't so it did well. Most novel readers love that romance aspect so you can see why this one isn't as popular because the reviews on the ebook sites LK only has around 50ish reviews while if you look up a random romance best seller and it's around 200 and up reviews lol LK is at least a decent storyline better than the one they were gonna do with Nadech and Taew lol so they have a better starting point coz that book didn't even have good reviews lool how good the lakorn ends up being is up to the producers abilities to make it more appleaing to the mass lakorn audience. If you want jin scenes and love scnes ... NO :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm: this one is NOT the one lol There is 1 or 2 accidental sniff kiss where her cheek bumped his nose. One stolen cheek kiss and a scene where she shaves him that's literally it lol They barely have scenes when they're alone most scenes have many characters. What's annoying about the writer is he doesn't develope parts well that shows the leads falling for eachother. They mostly just argue and act jealous later out of nowhere lol Like I said he doesn't even fully write out their engagement scene where you can imagine how they feel about their big day or just any scene of it which is weird... there's nothing lol Plus them getting engaged doesn't really change much anyway coz after that scene the direction switches to the conclusion lol So for me, someone who has read Thai romance style novel, there's no pay off here for that and the investigation part it's whatever it's not that exciting, just ok. There were only 2 scenes that were good for me that was related to this investigation part. Luang In's part that was indirectly related to the investigation where he has to catch a criminal which ties him to Pudsorn's investigation is actually a little more exciting thant the main investigation coz well it brought them together and created a peak moment for them. I think the writer is good with showing the leads' personalities well and they are good characters for NY to portray but he did not develop or focus much on a romance... While the main investigation it seems a little slow and bland.... coz how they find clues... it's just through word of mouth and they just follow up with it or make assumptions, there's no big action or crazy revelation lol The novel also focuses on some of their side characters too. But some of them are actually interesting so I don't mind them I'm looking forward to who will play some of the ones I like. The key word for act art for their script is, MORE. They need to dial everything up for sure coz the foundations are good just not as amazing as you would want. I like period lakorns so I don't mind the low romance but this one especially has extra low jin and just lead scenes so I hope they make it better. Plus the main selling point is the lead heroine coz her character is ahead of her times which I think is an interesting angle you don't see this often for Thai period lakorns.

Not sure how accurate this is.

Read at Pantip Thai Forum, someone
mentioned that the actor will be New
Chaiyapol Julien Pupart.

Not surprised if it's New because Pe Off already cast him in Rak Nakara as one of the main character.

Hope this is true because I heard he is a good actor and he's tall.

Since New Chaiyapol's name was rumored and some pictures posted in IG of casts and wardrobes ( See IG below) - just sharing some interesting findings :)

That rumour must be true then. Now that they have all three main characters. Hopefully fitting will start soon. But I'd rather they spend more time to develop the script. I heard they have only started working on the script a few months ago, even though they have talked about this project 2 years ago.

Since Pudsom is a doctor, I thought the investigation would rely more on forensic evidence that showcases her knowledge.

Okay, hawkeyed... lol now get the rest of the cast lol I really wanna know who'll play Pudsorn's aunt and the Jao Jom Kinaree. The latter is a villain but a fierce role. I can see Pear or Yoghurt cast here. I would cast Yoghurt coz she has to be really stunning and maybe even more beautiful than Pudsorn coz she was in awe too lol Can't cast Yaya but have a regular ole supporting cast be considered more beautfiul than her lol Robert is too calm for New. He's better at fiery roles. He could've even been Pudsorn's brother. Her brother is kinda a fuck up in the story lol but his mom is half Chinese so he'll be chinky which New would suit. He's a good actor but I don't know if this is a good role for him. I also want to know who'll be Pudsorn's cousin and Luang In's right hand man coz these two are the leads in the sequel. The PooPoly guy also has been hinting that maybe Tik will play Luang In's dad... so if the cast for the sequel's leads aren't dlisters or straight supporting actors, this can be a true series. Although, I still wouldn't cast Tik lol let his ass go omg ahhahahhhaha ch3 needs to focus on the future not a has-been trying to hang on lol They can cast him if they had a spot for him in LK but if they're thinking about casting him in the prequel, that's still a miscast lol smh They barely have any appealing newbies, stop wasting time on unappealing vets and breed some new faces with real potential :rolleyes: NY's generation isn't over the hill yet but by the time LK comes out Nadech will be close to 30 lol they better check their calendars and their pool of talent lol

Nakee 2 failed? If 450 million baht revenue and getting rurals people out to the theater to watch a movie for the first time in their life is considered a failure then some fandom are more delusional and desperate than I thought .

Some fandom need to go back to the cave where they came out of. So mad ? :risas3: still holding a torch since 2017 and tired yet?

Maybe if such so-call established shipper fandom , all thousands of them show up at the channel 3 soccer event and show your support then channel 3 might just give it a thought. Such imbeciles, thinking channel 3 needs to listen to them. lol
