Krating and Kao will be like Manga characters w/the tall ML and petite FL

Tre and Fern used a booster during kissing scenes.

Well, Great is selling hair serum now. So the hairstyle must be a factor too.:) I agree with you that the reporters are just being annoying constantly pushing for drama. Basically I feel like they expect certain answers from the stars and will keep asking and provoking as long as they don’t get the specific answers that they want. Well, these days with social media and many stars have their own YouTube channels, entertainment news reporters have to work harder to maintain their relevance. But Kao made me laughed whenshe talked about Great and called him “a warm person… microwave”.:pancarta:

I know a lot of girls are into the height difference between male and female leads but I’m meh about it. Their chemistry is most important to me. Kao and Krating are both cute though, more cute when one is super tall and the other is super short.:)

Nanon working with all these past and current Ch 3 n'eks haha think he has one work with Bua and another one Aff. I'm excited Mint C is getting a brand new fresh leading man! As much as I want a Chario reunion or for her to work with Great and James Ji, this will be great.

I'll be honest, I'm all for age difference dramas but it's a bit ehh for me when the age differences between the actors is more than 10 years. I feel the same let it be older man/older women. Aff looks great for her age but maybe similar too how I felt about James Ji and Anne where James has such a baby face... it makes the n'ek look even more old, it's hard to get into. Like how I don't get why these channels be pairing these fresh newbies 18-20 year actresses to these older 30-40 year old actors lol
‐----
Kao is so cute and tiny, she'll need a step ladder hahaha they'll be a cute and comedic duo!

Yes I agree with @WeirFany. I mean that actual age gap will already give me pause, but when the age gap is very visible on camera it makes me outright uncomfortable. Honestly JamesJi will still blend in with other students if he’s in a school uniform so it was hard for me to watch watch him with Anne. I mean, JJ already made Bella look old and the age gap between them wasn’t that big and they had chemistry.

The reason why the channels pair actors in their 30s with those in late teens is simple - they just want A-list actors to help push newbies. It’s all purely based on name value - doesn’t matter how these actors look on screen, if there’s chemistry, let alone if these actors are right for the role, etc.

All producers have their favourites, but my personal opinion of Anne is that she only wants to work with top names (as opposed to being willing to help develop rising stars?) JJ just fits the profile for that role. He’s the only top actor of the channel who’s not yet 30 after all.

And yes, I would get uncomfortable if the situation is reversed too. Poh N is not old enough to be the father of n’eks in their late teens or early 20s, but he looks like he could be - within drama world.:p

Can someone explain what's with this post. Lot of comments criticizing channel 3.

Translation based on Google translate, with some editing from me.
“I understand that everyone has seen the ratings and may be overthinking the situation, but the ratings are things that we can't control. Let's come to cheer up Channel 3, the team and the actors.​
In this era where everything has changed, people watching live through TV are less than before. In the future, ratings may be measured in a new way, that takes into consideration online viewing. Rating could then be better than what it is now, let’s wait a minute.”​

I guess viewers are unhappy about Ch3’s poor ratings? The comments are filled with people giving possible reasons for the poor ratings recently - dramas seem repetitive because several actors have had back to back dramas recently (Great, Toey P, Pat, Peun Khanin), plots that aren’t interesting, and of course the fact that Ch3 viewers do not watch the programmes live.

We have discussed several of these reasons before but that too many actors having consecutive dramas now is a programming/scheduling oversight I think. I’m guessing that COVID messed up with too many dramas’ shoots that left the programmers in this situation.

Puen khanin having evening lakorn with bua and simultaneously a prime time lakorn with chippy. Viewers will be confused with his characters. Pat-Mo lakorn had finished filming long ago and they decide to air in now. Lakorns age badly when there is significant time gap between filming and airing.
Hopefully scheduling gets better. The second half of the year has interesting lakorns and they might bring back good ratings.

Channel 3 should have taken notice when the ratings has been bad for a while...let's not blame covid for everything lol. We here have been discussing about the rating a while back. Channel has more problems than just airing an actor's lakorn back to back.

First: their lakorns in general are so lackluster that finishing it takes major dedication. Which, it seems people doesn't have these days.

Second: The way they pair up people are still questionable and that's been more than 10+ years. They rarely get the people that suits the characters. They get people base on their biased and that ruin one part of the lakorn.

Third: Storyline isn't moving forward. It's been stuck for ages. Channel 3 should able to progress their lakorns, but somehow they managed to stay where they are. At least Channel 7 knows their identity. And remakes....after remakes...after remakes. Even remake korean dramas or any dramas, they managed to find a way to mess it up somehow. Channel 3 really have to look at themselves and figure out how to fix it...that is if they want to fix it at all.

LOL COVID is only to blame for he current situation where these actors have lakorn back to back. But this is just a small symptom of bigger issues. The planning just isn’t there at a bigger, more macro level. Ideally there should be a better balance of lakorn utilizing their top, mid-range and new actors each year. What’s the point of having so many actors in their care if they’re hardly used? I mean, for sure there’s the point of the ‘80/20’ rule in sales, where 80% of their revenue is generated by 20% of their artistes, but they have the ability to go beyond that. They have artistes worth watching at all levels (compared to say, Ch7 whose newbies don’t seem to have X-factor in my eyes.)

I’ve been watching lakorn for over a decade now and I’ve always disliked the ‘standard’ lakorn plots. I thought: oh maybe Thais really like this style. But the ratings in the last 5 years show that no, they don’t actually like this any more. To be fair, I think this general change affects all Thai lakorn, not just Ch3. Lakorn seem repetitive because they are.

Make good shows and people would want to watch it regardless of who’s acting in it. I mean they cannot put Yaya, Nadech, Mark, Kim, Pope, Bella, Mario, James, Taew in every single lakorn that they produce. They need to do more to develop others & broaden their lakorn genres.

Start putting Eng subs in their lakorn on the clips that they put on YouTube, and eventually even on their dramas on Ch3+. They already have international fans, they can widen their current reach. This brings revenue for them and generates more potential revenue for the future. I feel like they currently lack manpower to do this - but then they should start hiring more. If YouTube channels by the different stars can have staff who can sub videos, don’t tell me Ch3 cannot develop resources for doing so. Korean dramas really exploded when the different channels stepped up their international outreach. Today people take subs for granted that they expect it all the time.
