Year of the Dragon, the Newbies Fade, the Oldies are Born!
This year is about to pass, the new year is about to arrive. This year passed by like a lie. Anyone who has anything bad to throw away, do it quick this year. Those that achieve success this past year, may you achieve even more success in the upcoming year.
Similar to the our entertainment circle, there’s some work that achieved success as expected and some work that failed to meet expectations. Just how some lakorns has the King and Queens of ratings to star in them, hoping to accomplish explosive ratings, yet failed. As for other lakorns that were out of sight and out of mind yet garnered ratings instead.
Lets have a look at what lakorns this 2012 year that created a star out of the people who starred in it.
Starting with Channel 3 first, even though this channel had many lakorns for us to view, what was well-known and garnered immense ratings was “Raeng Ngao.” When it goes on air, the viewers on the cyber world would claim it to be national “Raeng Ngao” day. Not just the lakorn itself that was talk, but the actors in the lakorn itself gained from the success of this lakorn. Many stars were born from this lakorn.
The first person being the pra’ek from the lakorn “Vikit” starring “Ken Phupoom.” In the past he’s starred in “Sam Num Nuea Tong,” but only became born in “Raeng Ngao.” He had young and old women wanting a man like “Vikit” to own for themselves.
Not just the pra’ek that was born in this lakorn, but “Radnok” or referred to as “Noo Nok” starring “Joy Chonticha” who disappeared from the screens for a long time was finally born. She came from the movie “Anda Gub Fai Sai” and many other lakorns “Marjuree Pak Ron,” “Ruk Ta Lan,” “Mae Poo Priew,” “Sam Darun.” Her return to small screen this time in this role showcased an excellent performance, because the whole nation detested her character “Noo Nok”
The list includes “Tanya Tanyares” who received the role of “Naponpa. Even though she has been in many successful lakorns including “Tong Prakai Saed, “See Mai Kan,” “Kammathep Pid Queue,” “Samee Teetra” all considered top lakorns, but none made her talk of town like this one. Ever since she met with a real life monsoon, she never accepted acting work for 2 years. She stopped hiding and came back to act in this lakorn. Any tiredness disappeared when she reasonably brought back a name for for Mia Luang (first wife).
Continuing on the other coast, Mochit’s side. Even though they may not have a national lakorn like the competing channel, but the ratings for many of their lakorns are comparable like “Nang Baeb Koke Gradone” starring the long-legged model-actress “Sammie Bunthita” in the role of Laura. Although she’s been in many lakorns including “Suparburoot Satan,” “Plik Fah La Tawan,” “Bporp Pee Fah,” “Nang Greed,” “Tawan Yor Saeng,” “Sawan Saeng,” “Bundai Dok Ruk,” “Lui,” “Chun Ruk Tur Na,” none made her that well known until she received the role of Laura. Now when she goes around town people remember her and refer to her as Laura, making her smile delightfully.
“Porshe Saran” from “Mon Ruk Mae Nam Moon” and “Sanae Bangkok” to “Look Poochai Mai Ta Pode” where he full out did action. He turned a stick into a dangerous weapon for kids. It’s being sold in the market too. This lakorn allowed Porshe to get continuous lakorns and events. He’s considered a leading actor with a Golden Queue stuffing money in his pockets without a break.
The return of “Nossaba Punnakarn” was in a Channel 7 lakorn “Fai Marn” after disappearing from the small screen to perform the duties of a mother for many years. She returned this time to play a villain role, Mia Noy Papit/Noodee. The former na’ek came back to successfully demand her throne as a talented actress.
It’s considered a Golden Year for the older generation stars, the familiar face stars. No wrong judgement here. Many of them have starred in many movies or lakorns in the past, but only achieved success and explosive fame this year. As for the newbies, this year none of them shined. Lets just conclude that next year there will be a new sky, because this year the oldies demand the throne.
