I’m sure they made their money back just by selling the rights to all those other countries but it still must suck to see a project they invested so much time and money in fall so flat. Oh well. That’s just life. You win some you lose some.
I hope all those countries will not regret buying this. Lol. I believe all this countries are from south east asia, they are familiar with the Korean version

I actually find it interesting that you’re bringing up Sunny’s age as a con, because if anything I feel like it would have worked in their favour. Like others have said copying the Korean version so closely honestly doesn’t translate as well especially since their skills aren’t better. If anything making small changes and having someone whose handsome AND skilled (but not necessarily younger looking) would make it an easier watch and would have helped give it a slight twist.

Also not be rude but Nadech and youthful do not belong in the same sentence. To me he looks the same age as Matt, in fact if you said that him and Sunny (I don’t know how old either of them are but I am assuming from the comments made that Sunny is older than Nadech and Matt) are the same age I’d believe it. To me Nadech looks the same age or older than Matt depending on his styling, specifically his hair.

Nadech is short and kinda stocky with a long face. All this factors only serve to age him more and more. Kim is also the same. Her big face makes her look older. (lol why do I sound like such a hater when Im actually a fan)

That M guy (Musa?, Mufa?), as he had something done to his face? It looks a bit wonky. I also agree that Matt’s wardrobe is disappointing. It’s not even that her styling is average, but it’s actually bad. I would prefer regular lakorn rich girl styling over what she has now

It seem strange that it would trend on twitter But the rating is so low. I think the trending is because of Nadech's fans especially most are also NY fans. They want to support him. But not all of them are in thailand. I don't particularly find anything bad in Nadech's acting. He should make it his own. It is a remake that has to have their own version. Kim soo hyun has his own version. He shouldnt act like him. That is his own version of being an alien. No one says kim soo hyun is the only correct way..well unless youre an alien and you know he did it the same..lol.. I think Nadech didnt watch the original and gave his own version. As he says a bit more human-like. Because he thought hes been with humans for so long..However Matt just watched it so many times I think she tried to copy Gianna hyuns acting to a T . But Matt is not Junjihyun who can act annoying and still looks adorable. Some people find Matt annoying to begin with. That with the lack of chemistry just set this remake on it way to a low rating. Matt doesn't have many fans. If anything Nadech's and NY fans would be the one to watch this. However I have to say i think as much as many or most of them want to support Nadech, it's hard for many to watch real kiss scenes. I can tell you this is most especially true with many Filipino fans they normally see their favorite loveteams rarely paired up with anyone else and not really many love scenes when they do. I say this because many if not majority of those who trended this drama on twitter if i would guess are from the Philippines. Thailand is more conservative with kissing scenes and i can only imagine most NY fans except for some who doesnt mind both NY doing real kisses with others.
So I think the problem came from many different angles. Also when this issue from Matt arose they should have taken the risk of replacing her.

You're my destiny was a Korean remake, but they manage to make it their own which captivated the fans. Other remake tanked to the deep blue ocean without any hope of recovering. So it is a 50-50 chance with remake. With Thai audience I think they wanted something that resonates with them. Who wear 3 layer suits and ride a bike in Thailand?

They should put him in T-shirts and shorts if he's going to ride bicycle to work.

You're my destiny is a Taiwanese drama then Korean remade it before Thai remake...I think some Taiwanese dramas are simlilar with Thai typical dramas that's why.

I never watch Korean ver but I try to watch this last night. The drama is nice but I feel like it can't captivate the audiences...just like nothing to look forward for what happen next..however I hope the story gets better and also the rating.

I find the supporting people aren't as strong in their acting. With everything going on with this lakorn I am not surprised it turned out like this. It delayed for so long I got to the point of not caring if it was airing or not.

A remake that’s exactly the same copy is not going to do them any good. There’s no mystery in this lakorn and the Thai audience can’t relate to the storyline. We really can’t compare the Thai acting to Korean cus they are different culture. It would be harder to watch if they do act like Koreans. Lol

I couldn't quite remember ...the delay was redoing everything ? Did they really scratch everything and did it from the beginning or just reshoot many scenes? Why did they do that again? It was like another year. Almost 2 years. Then in the middle of the reshoot this whole thing with Matt came out... I think they decided to wait the issue to calm down. But it would probably have been better if they cast a new actress since they needed to reshoot, , .Matt doesn’t have a large fan base to begin with. Then there are people who started to not like her because of the issue, and it doesn’t matter how long the production wait, these people won’t watch it. People who will watch it are Nadechs fans , NY fans and people who like the Matt-Nadech pairing. ..and how many fans does Matt-Nadech pairing has? So it will be down to his fans and NY fans to watch. . Seriously, NYFC will support Nadech, but how many fans of Nadech and Yaya would actually want to watch Nadech kissing Matt who many people don’t like? The producers didn’t consider that, Maybe if it’s made with other actress... I’m thinking Davika might actually work or Bella., I know it’s a little mismatch on the age thing, but at this point chemistry is more important so people would watch, they don’t have to do it exactly as the kdrama. So those people saying Nadech should act this way or that like Kim soo hyun,..well to confirm that ..only an alien would know if Nadech is right or wrong. ....

Anyway, I would have preferred Nadech on DOTS remake instead of this, it is a great opportunity to play for him so he accepted without reading the script which I think was not a good idea, one should always read first before accepting so they know what they’re getting into regardless if it’s a great kdrama remake, I think he is doing good, I don’t know if this kind of thing will happen again, Becsuse actors of remakes of iconic dramas should really have only 1. Becsuse if you play 2 . Eg. If An actor would play lead in both MLFAS and DOTS remakes it might be less convincing on the second one he makes becsuse he gets associated with whichever role he played first.....
Although if the 1st one he made is a very forgettable drama, it might work, but on another hand they might be leery in castinh him for the other one if the 1st didn’t become popular. Considering it’s not just thai production who would make the decision for another kdrama remake. For Thais and most of us we know Nadechs ability and popularity . He could as easily play any part, But for Koreans ...he was already the lead for MLFAS and then the rating.. anyway, I really am hoping they would have that remake of DOTS with NY. It may have ruined it now,, But...who knows miracle still happens,

I get where you come from, but to be honest Pantip is not a place you can based your opinion on. they are bias as heck. I think more artist managers post in there than real people.

The original was a success due to the production technology, some of the special effect was never in any K-dramas at the time. In 2019 even low budget Netflix drama had better special effects.

Did they changed director? It was just one thing after another...then boom Matt's scandal. But to me, with or without her scandal I lost interest in it after so long. And when it aired the excitement of wanting to see it just isn't there. And the OST is a snooze (the love you song) whatever the title is makes me yawn and the scene even if not boring became a drag.

I am a big fan of Matt anyone been here long enough would know lol but when her scandal broke I've mentioned she took the risk then the fall shouldn't be counted out. Every action has its consequences. So, she has to deal with whatever comes her way.

If they decided to pull Matt out Nadech n'ek should be someone in Jui's age group or looked that mature...Bee N...Ploy C. I even have a hard time seeing any age gap between Na and Matt. The older woman and younger man doesn't quite apply here when Matt looks most of the time his age. And to add, they really don't have the chemistry and I am still bothered by Matt's outfits. To add Yoghurt, Masu and God and whomever else that lacks the acting makes this lakorn bad. It's boring most of the time. So, I have to watch it as if it's a new lakorn not a remake.

Maybe Nadech needs to act with Wan Peng. She's an Alien but a damn good one. She's my favorite Alien so far lol

Uhh. I don’t know many thai older actresses..lol.. maybe Anne T, ( does she still act? LOL) ..or...is Aum P. Older? :risas3:But can she be believable in it? .. She seem more like for drama than comedy romance... Or.. I don’t know how many years chompoo has over Nadech haha..but.. she seem to have an image like yaya. More on the adorable sweet side. ..the lead has to have some feistiness. .. I don’t know.. those were the only older people I know haha.
I wonder what the next kdrama remake would be.... I like period kdrama eg. Moonlight drawn by clouds or moon embracing the sun...but that might be impossible to remake in thai

An all A list casts would have worked, sometimes even if everything else sucks. It is sometimes the best way to almost guaranteed the result of rating wouldn’t be embarrassing. If they really played it safe that’s what they should have done

Nadech is a national treasure with plenty of work that his fans can enjoy than watching this lame lakorn. Matt on the other hand is Thailand's most hated person lol it's easy for Nadech fans who hate her after her scandal and general viewers to shun her coz they don't have to support someone like her. Lakorn wise there are plenty of options currently and it's not the last lakorn that Nadech will make it's okay to skip. Fans have been saying they'll skip this one even tho they love Nadech and support Nadech and Khun Nong on their next one. Plus the fact that this lakorn actually sucks will not help with the ratings. This poll asks why people didn't watch the lakorn and an overwhelming amount said coz of Matt lol https://pantip.com/topic/39260092/result I'd like to see a poll of Matt vs corrupt leaders or killers in Thailand to see who they would still pick coz how they treat Matt is very extreme like she's in this category of horrible peoples. For Thai Et, I've never seen anyone hated like Matt before. Some stars can do bad things and it's in the news for like 2 weeks max but Matt, it's been a year. The hate is real and I don't think she'll ever recover. If you read around posts on her, people are nothing but snarky. They can't stand the sight of her. Her lakorn with Nine she'll be lucky if his fans don't make noise enough that she'll get pulled coz he has a lot of fans. It's funny Matt stared with Nadech and now Nine who are both known to be extremely polite lol In Pantip, the last two episodes, no one even bothered to make live threads for each ep... NO buzz. Tweets were also very low from the initial day. Even in this thread, with 3 eps out no one really even bothers talking about the lakorn itself... no highlight scenes... plot progress... just nothing.

It's funny people talk about how miscast this lakorn is when this lakorn would've never been made if Nadech didn't act in here coz Korean side wanted to know who was gonna be male lead. They didn't ask about nothing else. Matt isn't a bad choice available in ch3 but in the end she failed at executing too and she wasn't even first choice lol It was Davika lol Thai fans who criticised her said she tries too hard and her acting is weird. She doesn't come off as natural or sympathetic like the original. People can't get used to her acting or root for her character coz they mai in lol What's the criteria for the leads, for the actress to be haggard looking and can do comedy? LOL So Matt is the only choice for ch3. From what I've seen in the episodes that aired, this storyline is horrible. People aren't watching this not coz it's a Korean remake, if this was an original Thai storyline I don't think people would care for it either. It's not Thai Lakorn style. I've heard that the original is adored coz of the all around A-list cast and I'm totally convinced it's the main reason why it worked. You can't give a horrible storyline to any cast that doesn't consist of all popular-good actors coz it can be the only good thing about the actual lakorn. I think Korean fans were given a treat with seeing really popular actors acting in uncharacteristic ways which is why the original worked. That's why casting someone like Matt who people have seen do comedy like this isn't exactly a homerun decision. There has to be an unexpected element so it might've been more impactful if they chose maybe a straight lace lead like Aff lol or you know Noon someone else who has never done comedy. In this case, you've got Thailand's number #1 actor and the most hated person lol I mean, what were people expecting. I didnt' expect it to be this bad but again, Broadcast didn't do their job either. While I know Broadcast is ch3's top production, I've never really liked their style. There's something about the vibe of their lakorns and their fave actors that I just don't care for. For this lakorn, they copied everything because they had to, it's part of the agreement when the purchased the rights. But the Thai side also edit in a way that they drag this version. Notice each ep has 10 parts not 9 like other lakorns and their total episodes will be longer than Korean version too. Their editing is really boring and their comedic timing is horrible. In ep 1 they ended where Farada was drunk in his house but ep 2 started 30 mins with scenes that lead up to it wtf lol I don't know if that was intentional I don't see why it would be or it was an error from the editor. The script itself, the dialogue is also very try hard. The humor/puns in here is unfunny. None of the so-called iconic funny clips have even gone viral for the Thai version. The expectations for how well this lakorn can do should be lower coz it's not like Broadcast succeeded in any area... not casting, script, directing, editing... they promote it that way like hyping how far Thailand's come in the technical sense but I see no progress lol I think khun Nong was just delusional and acting like a fan girl who wanted to remake a popular Korean series. Thais also bash how it seem like they used Thai actors to play Korean. They were annoyed with why they have the charcters each fried chicken and drink liquor like Koreans lol
voluntary response polls like the one you posted are not very accurate because most of the people that do them are the people with the most biased responses. So basically, people who hate Matt are the most likely to take that poll. They aren’t really an accurate representation of a population which is why people tend to avoid them when doing legitimate studies. I’m taking a college statistics class right now and I just thought I should share that for everyone here lol Not saying Matt isn’t one of the bigger reasons because she definitely is but she’s obviously not the only reason lol

Exactly lol I mean it’s true people hate Matt but 11k views on TrueID is just a little too low for someone like Nadech even if his fans hate Matt. That just goes to show it’s a big mixture of reasons as to why people aren’t watching this.

Oh, goodness, Ann T. would be like his mom. That would be too much for me. A lot failed in this lakorn. Matt can take some blame but everything around it is just as boring. I have high hope for god but when I saw him act...boy he was bad. Even Yoghurt was fine in her previous lakorns in here she's annoying as hell. Even Nine's mom is annoying in here. They literally managed to make so many people unwatchable in here.

Kdramas and C dramas has different environments where it's hard for Thai to remake. Plus, their acting style is different so when you watched the original then come to watch it as a Thai remake the appeal kind of dropped already.

I think Turkish actors has a better sense of acting than Thais actor do, honestly. Next time Thai does decided to do a remake they need one where they have some wiggle room. I mean, to remake such a popular drama and has to pretty much duplicate it is already starting off wrong.

I think many things went wrong. And I’m not even talking about the technical and production part. Just where actors are concern. I think both Matt and Nadech should have passed this offer. Nadech I knew would be compared to Kim Soo Hyun, but those two have totally different style of acting. Nadech wants to insert some “humanity” into the character, well I’m not sure if that’s his idea or they told him to do that, But being an alien really had no marker ...like who are we supposed to based it from? We don’t know any alien. LOL. With Matt she looked very animated like when one exaggerate, I know junjihyun acted like that but that was junjihyun style she use to created the character, she owned tha style of acting,. It is a character that is supposed to be annoying but in a funnyn and cute way. Junjihyun put her own spin on how she would portray it so people won’t be annoyed with her but be amused. No two actors are the same . To portray same role, one might need to act in a different style or way to create the same effect, Matt should have given it her own spin. But she decided to copy. Which didn’t quite work. She saw it several times I’m sure this is what she ended up doing.is to copy it as close as possible. then the scandal ....what happened is, now people became annoyed with her because of it and then she is also portraying an annoying character ..it doubled up. So if you who is a fan of hers wouldn’t like to watch. What about the others who aren’t a fan?

Hahaha was Anne that old? Bella might have worked .. but I think for the male lead...how about boy? LOL I’m not thinking of the age thing any,ore just the character, cause it’s just hard to get anyone,, even if they’re older it still don’t match the age with appearance, haha.. ..sunny is ok.. I can see him as the lead. But the production might not. But I can see how he would act. Him and Aum LoL or age not considered Him and Bella. Sorry I can’t think of anymore actresses.

I think khun Nong was just delusional and acting like a fan girl who wanted to remake a popular Korean series. Thais also bash how it seem like they used Thai actors to play Korean. They were annoyed with why they have the charcters each fried chicken and drink liquor like Koreans lol
I feel like this sums up everything wrong with this lakorn. Khun Nong was obviously fulfilling her kdrama fangirl fantasy but it's not working for obvious reasons. The editing and transitions are awful, the wardrobe leaves a lot to be desired, let's not talk about Nadech's awful mushroom wig, the cast has no chemistry together, like at all? Matt's comedic timing is so off omg! The cringe. It's so empty and shallow. It's no wonder it's flopping so hard. Thai audience Vs a Korean audience lol they obviously don't share the same taste. There is a reason why all the kdramas remakes rarely do well there.

The OG version did have an iconic casting there is absolutely no doubt about it lol Kim Soohyun?
He was fresh out of his the moon that embraces the sun fame, that was started with his dream high hype as well.
It also marked Jun Ji Hyun return to kdramaland after over a freaking decade. Comparing Matt to JJH is unfair lol there is nothing to compare here. The only thai actress I could see having the same kind of impact is Aum P I think? And even then, she's still actively acting so it's not like the people are THAT thirsty for her return. The show also had Park Hae Jin and Yoo Inna that were pretty famous on their own. And most importantly it aired right after The Heirs ended. Let's not mention its screenwriter that had previously wrote a nation hit. Of course people were anticipating it. There are so many components that made it an inevitable hit.

I think Bie (gubgib's husband) would have been good, if he's maybe two years younger lol. To me, his acting is a bit more polished. He played a cold, arrogant, aloof guy but yet was able to have this warmth that's still visible. But the challenge still remain to find a n'ek.

I usually give a few episodes of a lakorn to see if I would stick around even if my favorite is in there. I don't like to waste my time to watch a lakorn just to watch it if it's not good. Unless, the lakorn is so so bad that it's good then I am on the train wreck ride. Boy is a no, no for me.

This is a role Matt wanted so I just don't think she would pass it up and since it was a remake with Nadech in mind, I don't think he'll pass it up as well. There's no suspense, no scenes where you want to look forward to the next time. I'm currently watching Vuslat...it's like a puzzled drama. Where each episode is a little 2 hours long but the main leads share maybe 10-15 minutes screen time. But...even if the romance is in the background there's always something to make you want to know what happened in the next episode.

In here, it's like whatever and then I forget what day it even aired. There are a few times where I see Nadech trying really hard not to laugh lol. And the flashback, the girl isn't good in acting. I wished this remake is one where they would audition every single one of them. Stop handing out roles like they are handing out candies.
