Dramatards Triathlon: Dramas - 5/40

Full House Thai

Score: 9/10

      Aom-am is a writer who lives with her older sister. Her sister panics when her bills start to pile up and she finds out that she is pregnant so she conspires with her boyfriend to sell the house. They send Aom-am to South Korea on vacation and sell the house while she is away. While in South Korea she meets two men, Guy and Mike. Guy is sweet and Mike is a complete jerk.  Upon arriving back in Thailand, she finds out that her house was sold to Mike. Mike has recently had his heart broken and begins a fake relationship with Aom-am to save face. The two agree on terms and enter into a fake marriage. What started out as a business relationship between the two becomes something more  as they actually start to fall for each other.

      I really loved the Korean version of Full House so I decided to give this a try. I had only watched the Thai drama Sawan Biang and I didn't have high hopes for this drama but it exceeded my expectations. While still a bit cheesy for my tastes, Full House Thai managed to be a quite pleasant experience. The leads were great and had amazing chemistry. There was a lot of humor and cute moments. It is different enough from the original version to make it worth watching both.
