Aren’t you all just as surprised as I am? Honestly, so am I. Without GMMTV, I wouldn’t be able to watch most Thai dramas. The good news is that Thai dramas are starting to appear on Netflix. Sadly, it’s not easy to track them down unless you’re already familiar with the titles like I am. That said, I’ve managed to pull together a list of Thai dramas that I found.
If they grow in popularity, it would be great if they had a category for making these dramas easier to find. Nonetheless, I’ve seen some of these pop up as far back as April, so I really want to take the time to recognize these dramas for anyone who may be interested in these.
These are teen/young adult dramas and may not be everyone’s cup of tea. They are also a bit older and I know Club Friday and Hormones used to be available of GMMTV’s youtube channel, but I’m not seeing them there now. I will have to research that further. There’s even a Thai sitcom on the list!
Hormones (Thai): This drama features issues and experiences of Thai teenagers in high school such as relationship, sexuality, sex, bullying, school gang violence and substance abuse. Family issues are also gradually revealed as the series progresses.
O-Negative (Thai): O-negative drama is remake for O-negative movie (1998). It’s about the story of five friends who loved decorative arts. They met randomly during the ceremony on the first day of class. One day, the freshmen were required to donate blood. They learned then that the 5 of them have the same blood type, O-negative.
Club Friday To Be Continued: My Beautiful Tomboy (Thai): A change in sexual identity complicates young Meen’s relationships, while memories of a past romance remain fresh.
Club Friday To Be Continued: Friend & Enemy (Thai): A love triangle spirals out of control, wreaking havoc on a couple’s relationship and a friendship between two women.
Club Friday To Be Continued: The Promise (Thai): Two young lovers vow to stay friends through thick and thin, but separation test their bond until fate allows them to reunite.
HA Unlimited (Thai): Three comedians launch a company designed to spread happiness far and wide in this Thai sitcom packed with gags, sound effects and special guests.
