20 Questions: Lakorn Challenge

I saw this lakorn challenge in Fia's blog and blobofcolour blog and I was so excited to answer it. I don't watch lakorn on a daily basis and I drop more lakorn than I complete them. So, this is great for me because I get to relieve some lovely lakorn moments and remind me all over again why i love watching lakorn in the first place. Thank you for sharing it!!

How did you start watching lakorns?
i watched one by Tik named Soda and Iced Tea because it was aired in the channel in my country but I wasn't terribly enamoured by it (it was a boring lakorn) and stopped for a long time. I picked watching lakorn after several lonely dinners at home and a sudden urge to learn my supposedly mother tongue. The foray into the world of lakorn began with Sood Sanaeha. What a perfect lakorn to begin with and it set the bar pretty high. I have never expected the characters to be multidimensional with character developments. It was funny at the right time, got my hearts gooeey the right amount and made me teary at the end. Love it!!

Lakorn fever for the first time. credits: asianfuse wiki
 Your all time favourite lakorn?
Game Rai Game Ruk. I was torn between GRGR and Sood Sanaeha. It was Sood Sanaeha that got me into the lakorn world but GRGR was the one that got me all feverish.
Your least favourite lakorn?
 I normally don't finish the lakorns that I dislike. I tried real hard to finish Roy Marn because I read good reviews but I never got their chemistry and the nang ek was too much of a brat.
Your favourite lakorn OST?
Oh, this is difficult because I don't really remember the title of the OST. But it has to be one of the OST of duang jai akkanee. The duet with this big sized guy and a lady. Akkanee sang to jeed in one of the picnics. *I just searched it's by Pop calories and bowling:  Hai ruk dern taang mah jur gun*

The last lakorn you watched?
 Khun Chai Puttipat
What lakorn are you currently watching?
Hormones the series and Khun Chai Ratchanon.

A lakorn you looked forward to but disappointed you in the end?
Thoranee Ni Nee Krai Krong. Like I said I dislike bratty nang ek. And they took too long to finally fall in love. But the cinematography was great. *confession bear: did not finish it. was tooo boring*
What a wonderful surprise. credits: asianfuse wiki
 A lakorn you started without expectations but loved it in the end?
Khun Chai Puttipat. Me? And a period lakorn?? Can't believe I loved every bit of it. This world needs more gentlemen!! I need my Khun Chais..
Preferred lakorn type (revenge, slap/kiss, boran, romcom etc)?
 Slap/kiss, romcom
Favourite male/female character?
 Krong Kaew. She carries herself with class and finesse. And despite how many lemons life throws her, she makes a good lemonade. And, she is gentle but strong. She is independent and stands by her principles. And despite being able to catch a rich man, she still has her own dream of opening up her own business selling delicacies.
Least favourite male/female character?
The General in Khun Chai Puttipat. Sleazy old man!! He has the yuckiest lines too.
A lakorn character you’d like to be friends with in real life?
 Krong Kaew. She just seemed like a real nice person. I'm sure I'll be a better person if I have a friend like this.
A lakorn character you’d marry in real life?
 Charles from Game Rai Game Ruk!! Who wouldn't?? Provided he loved me just like how he loved Nang Fah.
Lakorns are full of psycho villains. Who makes your blood boil the most?
 That General toad from Khun Chai Puttipat!! Grr~~
A lakorn character that is most like you?
This is tough. Because I am real and the characters in lakorn, well they are not. But if have to choose it's probably Lumpao (played by Toey J) in Sam Num Neua Thong (which i did not finish too.. :D ), just because we have the same profession, i really love animals and i'm quite chirpy myself.
Most memorable lakorn confession?
When Khun Chai Puttipat told Krong Kaew to give him a break so that he could love some thing else aside from him work/career as a doctor. And he sneakily asked her, "Don't you want to know what or WHO am I in love with". And a blushing Krong Kaew goes said faked annoyance "Khun Chaiii~~~~". 

Most memorable first meeting of the main couple?
Alin and Kru Cook in Sood Sanaeha. They met for the first time because Alin made a fuss that the cook did not abide to her version of the Chef's Salad and Kru Cook is adamant that a Chef's salad is as the chef says. Its a good beginning for the lakorn because it sets the dynamics of their relationship for the rest of the lakorn.
Favourite lakorn ending?
 Hormones the series. The ending is real sad. I would spoil it if I describe in anymore. Go watch!!
Top 3 couples in a lakorn?
Saichon-Nang fah (Game Rai Game Rak), Khun Chai Puttipat - Krong Kaew (Khun Chai Puttipat) , Id- Korya (Pan Rai Pan Rak)
Top 3 actor/actress pairing?
Yadech!!! James Jirayu - Bella R., Toom Tam - Charebelle.
