Much credit to the ingenious mind of one Khun Salil when the author transformed a rather obscure, very scientific term Absolute Zero – with no romantic or relational definition – into something associated with the heart and its various terms of endearment and failings. Recent reports suggest that Studio Wabi-Sabi (Love by Chance, UWMA Series) has acquired the rights to turn the novel into a live-action adaptation.Continue reading “Absolute Zero – องศาสูญ The Series (2021)”
Season 2 of Love By Chance will focus on Tin-Can (the second main couple) due to the lack of an effective conclusion in the initial season. Fans are demanding closure and the production team has obliged. Reports now indicate that Studio Wabi Sabi has entered into an agreement with a streaming service in South Korea to air Love by Chance Season 1.

Nothing has changed since this quote was made many years ago:
There Are No Small Acting Parts Only Small Actors.
– Konstantin Stanislavski
Who made waves in 2019? Who gave the best performances? Who are the year’s breakout actors?
Netflix’s desire for playview domination in Asia made headways in Japan and Korea already. Now, it has begun campaigning in Thailand and other South East Asian countries. Today, the streaming giant launches The Stranded about 30+ students who got lost on a remote island.
With some Lord of the Flies, di Caprio’s The Beach, and Lost (American Tv series) vibes, The Stranded offers some unique Thai horror and lore blends that made it engaging and entertaining.
Last January 2019, it was revealed that Netflix will broadcast its first Thai drama entitled The Stranded.
