Before Valentine comes early

Before Valentine (ก่อนรัก...หมุนรอบตัวเรา), an ensemble romantic comedy from Five Star Production, has opened in Bangkok cinemas for a sneak preview run, a week ahead of its planned February 5 release.

It's directed by Songsak Mongkoltong, who previously directed 2007's rather enigmatic psychological ghost thriller, The Screen at Kamchanod.

Mainly teen oriented, though there's an older married couple involved as well, the stories deal with four different couples, each trying to sort out their feelings and problems in the weeks leading up to on the day before Valentine's Day.

The cast includes Thanachat Tulayachat from Boonchu 9 as well as Tanakrit Panitchwit, Diana Jongjintanakarn, Klaokaew Sintepdol, Sita Thanunchotikan, and Tata Young's former fiance, Prem Busarakhamwon.

MovieSeer has a synopsis. And there's a trailer on YouTube, which is embedded below. Deknang has a page and forum thread. Oh, and there's an official website too.

Update: It's actually be three directors. In addition to Songsak, Bangkok Loco's Pornchai "Mr. Pink" Hongrattanaporn and Seree Phongnithi have directed segments of this ensemble romance.


  1. Hi there,

    I was wondering if you happen to know the song in the trailer for this movie. It starts half way through the trailer. Even though I cannot speak thai, after seeing the preview for this movie while in Thailand, it looks really good.


  2. I Googled the lyrics, and the song is คำสำคัญ "important word", sung by "B" Peerapat (บี พีรพัฒน์) of the band Crescendo (เครสเซนโด้). The song title is a reference to the word รัก "love", of course.

    The full music video is on YouTube here.

  3. Hi There,

    Thanks so much for the response. I was able to discover Crescendo after listening to that song. Can you recommend other artists in similar style to Crescendo?
