Thank you so much for speaking exactly what I was thinking! Ken P was such a "lucky" p'ek to Taew in Nakee! My girl Taew is really rocking her roles lately. I cannot wait for her lakorns this year! Lol.Being popular in Thailand is different than being popular internationally though. Girls like Chom, Yaya, and etc have lots of current work that are being subbed in English and fans can easily follow. Channel 7 lakorns aren't as easy to access for overseas fans.
Also, I don't think Nakee would have been as popular as it was without Taew. Sorry to burst anyone's bubbles. People got into Nakee because of Taew's basically flawless acting. I'm sure there are other actresses that can do well in the role, but no one can make the role shine the way Taew did. To be honest, I think more people associate Nakee with Taew more than anything. Even Ken himself as the pra'ek didn't garner as much buzz as Taew did.
