I haven’t been updating this space because in between life, commitments, language study and dramas, I barely had time. But I need to come here to talk about the drama I’ve just finished watching.
Remember You (คือเธอ)
It’s like SO GOOOD?!!
And it’s providing so much motivation for me to study Thai. I didn’t know it’s still possible that I fangirl so much, when I thought that I’ve mostly mellowed out with age lolol. Gone were the days (I thought) where I could have so much feels for a show and character.
But this is it. I’ve found my all-time favorite Thai drama now!! Something that I’ll want to rewatch again and again and again.
Remember You (2021) is actually a Thai remake of Korean drama Hello Monster (2015), but I love the Thai show soooo much that unfortunately I’m unwilling to watch the Korean source anytime soon. I’ll also like to see them as separate shows, so no comparisons please!
There are so many things absolutely adore about this show that I don’t even know where to begin. (You can begin watching the show on Netflix LOL). I’m not sure how to describe the show without spoiling it, but there are elements of procedural crime / mystery / a strong backstory / a very complex and interesting villain / compelling main and side characters.
I don’t think there’s anything I don’t love about the show.
But I’m very very very much drawn to Tanwa, our male lead. He’s absolutely my ideal type (on screen), both in terms of looks and character.[Some spoilers (?) ahead – highlight to read]
The loveline in the story is not the focus but this makes it even more precious when we get a couple of sweet scenes. And I absolutely love how the girl is active in expressing her feelings and she takes actions hahaha.
And omg Tanwa and his half-smiles/half-smirks. My heart cannot.
I’m completely a fangirl.[End of spoilers]
Fangirling aside, I truly loved the whole execution of the drama and every single scene was just so perfect and good. If you are looking for a Thai drama, I highly recommend this!!
And yes, I’ve been very much into the Thai language these days. But hahaha like what my friend astutely observed, I always focus on another language when I’m going to take a language test LOL.
TOPIK is in less than 2 months, so somehow my brain is steering me away from studying Korean lol.
I’m hoping to spend more time on Thai 🙂 Truly loving the language!
I’m slowly working my way through the Thai drama selection on Netflix.
