And finally falls in love with a girl that fell in love with his dad.
4) Love Destiny
This is not actually a movie, it’s a historic drama with 16 episodes but it’s worth mentioning because at the time when the movie was screening its final episode there was literally no cars on the street because everybody stayed home waiting in front of their TV. This drama is loved by Thai people and foreigners alike.
It’s a historic drama meaning, yes, the language used contains many things that are not used nowadays in spoken Thai. But listen, the main character, Karaked, was transported back to the Ayutthaya era due to a car accident. She, just like us, is from this era we are in and she also has trouble fitting in and adapting to the language of that epoch. Here, you as Thai learners can really benefit from Thai culture and rich languages of the past and the clash with the culture and languages of today’s Thai. Seems interesting right? Go check it out.
3) Hello Stranger
Hello Stranger is an amazingly funny love comedy movie that takes place in Korea. Many years ago (until now) there was a Korean drama craze period where all Thai women fell in love with Korean actors. The female character was a drama fan who came to Korea just to visit where her favorite film took place. The guy, recently broke up with his girlfriend, ended up in Korea ALONE because of the ticket bought for his honeymoon months ago. Here in Korea, the funny story takes place. The two stick together (more like he sticks to her) and many many fun stories happen in her Korean friend’s home, at the wedding, in the restaurant, in the casino. It’s one of a must-see movie.
