Ping Lumprapleung (พิง ลำพระเพลิง), the multi-talented comedian and performance artist who directed the 2006 romantic comedy-drama Loveaholic (โคตรรักเอ็งเลย) is back with another cute-looking and sentimental yarn with Dreamaholic (ฝันโคตรโคตร, Fun Koht Koht).
This time, instead of letting comedian "Nose" Udom Taepanich stand in for him, as he did in Loveaholic, Ping has gone ahead and played the lead role himself, portraying an crinkly-eyed street performer who somehow develops a relationship with a popular and attractive actress (Pawinee Wiriyachaiyakit) who is perhaps half his age.
Projections of a typical misogynist's dream? Have to wait and see.
The posters and trailer (embedded below) have been around for awhile. Deknang has a page. Heck, there's even a website. Produced by Prachya Pinkaew's Baa-Ram-Ewe studio and distributed by Sahamongkol Film International, Dreamaholic opens in Thai cinemas on Thursday, September 17.
