‘Saam Num Neua Thong (3 Golden Men)’ the 2011 remake from Maker Y has an premier date of December 16, 2011–roughly 3 weeks from now. Filming was delayed by the flooding and special changes were made to delay the premier date. ‘Game Rai Game Ruk’ was shorten by 30 minutes per episode and ‘Khao 3 Miti (3 dimensional news) ‘ was extended by 30 minutes to allow time for ’3 Golden Men’ to film.

By popular vote for Sudsapda magazine at their website and facebook account, the ranking of the 20 most huggable Thai guys of 2011. ‘Roi Marn (Trace of the Devil)’ star Boy Pakorn is ranked number 1 and ‘Ter’ Chantavit Dhanasevi came in last. I would agree, Boy did give one of the best hug and confession scene in lakorn history in Roi Marn episode 13. It’s one of those scenes, you’ll remember for a long time.
I needed a laugh. This is from China. A young man accidentally walks into a women’s changing room, he takes off his shirt, and realizes he might be in the wrong room. He quickly turns around and sees three girls wrapped in towels, wearing pink slippers, staring at him in shock. Time to react. He turns around like a flamboyant gay guy, pats lotion (?) on his face, and slowly picked up his clothes to leave in a girly fashion. Haha. Outside, he squats down, covered his face with the green towel and cried. Guy, it’s okay.
I have not seen the original, all 100 of them or how many there are of this series. When it’s good, they keep remaking it- I believe this is the third or the fourth remake of the lakorn version. Yah. It’s one of those classics they will remake every 10 years or so.
In the latest version, Sir Pong Nawat has been approached by Daravdo productions to play the lead role of Chai Klang–the charismatic, do-gooder, who will marry our nang’ek and help her reclaim her role as the lady of Ban Saithong.
Pong feels honored to be approached for this role, it is a classic. Actors become national level Thai stars when they take part in this lakorn. He wants to be part of it, but his schedule is packed with Exact Scenario lakorns. ‘We talked about it and they (Daravdo) invited me to play (the role of Chai Klang) and I’m interested because it’s a good role. It’s a legend. I want to take on role. Right now, I have been clearing up my schedule because I am booked for 2-3 Exact Scenario lakorns,’ said Pong.
Pong has been approached because of his booked schedule, nothing has been confirmed. I don’t know. They did say the nang’ek is ‘Min’ Pechaya Wattanamontree. This will be a Ch7 lakorn, which is alright. The problem lies in the production company of Daravdo, they don’t make good quality lakorns–not in terms of story or acting. It’s the production quality–the way they film, it looks disorganized and I don’t want to use the C word.
