As mentioned in my blog post on self-learning Thai while in Singapore, it is a good idea to watch Thai Lakorns (with subtitles) and pick up useful phrases that Thai people commonly use in everyday life conversations. While some Thai lakorns such as ‘The Crown Princess / ลิขิตรัก’ are certainly exciting drams to check out, it does not show how Thai people actually communicate in everyday life. Besides the Ugly Duckling and UPrince series which were recommended in the blog post above, here are 5 other Thai lakorns I’ve watched and they can be easily found online in Singapore with subtitles. I also strongly recommend watching the Gifted นักเรียนพลังกิฟต์ and I have written a detailed review on this Thai drama. Enjoy watching and learning na ka~
