Twenty-two episodes. What? Last week, it was 21 episodes and ending on Sunday, September 19, now it is 22 freaking episodes. For the love of holy cheese, I think I’m gonna pass out. I enjoy watching “Hi-Tech Maidservant” very much, but at around episode 16, I kinda felt it needed to wrap things up pronto. Everyone knows about everything, except our pra’ek. He is still left in the dark. Poor guy. He doesn’t know about Nee who has been lying to him and having an affair with Chai for years; he doesn’t know that Rin is actually his life crisis therapist masquerading as his maidservant. He is being deceive all around, some with good intentions, others for his money.
“Hi-Tech Maidservant” is a top TV ratings lakorn, it’s ranked number one. It is the only currently lakorn pulling in ratings of 18 and 19, that is amazing thus I can understand the episode extensions. It’s business. However it’s diluting the story and creating weird dialogue that takes me awhile to understand.
Last week’s numbers:
September 10, Friday: Rating of 15.3
September 11, Saturday: Rating of 18.4
September 12, Sunday: Rating of 17.1
Jui Warattaya our leading lady loves the episode extensions, she wants more of it. “Everyone on set is very happy that the results (Tv Ratings) has been this great, we film as it airs and on set it is very hay-ha (joyous). Now, they have extended it to 22 episodes. I want more extensions because I enjoy doing my job. I’m very delighted by the feedback it heals my tiredness.”
Filming is insane, everything is last minute. They get the script that day and film a few hours later. For the kissing scene at the beach between Jui and Om, they received the script that morning– Jui and Om didn’t know they were going to do a real kiss. It just happened.
I guess I wasn’t the only person who noticed, Jui and Om have amazing onscreen chemistry. Apparently offscreen, they are amazing too. There is a rumor that Jui and Om are more than friends, they have been seen going out to eat together and there are pictures. Jui said it was nothing, they went out to eat with a staff member and an executive, they just happened to sit side by side. They seem very friendly around each other. someone noted. Again, Jui said it was nothing, she is confuse by it. She has seen the pictures and New Wongsakorn her boyfriend is not bothered by it. It’s not an issue at all.
