More Thai-Lao romance and more Dan Worrawech

Director Sakchai Deenan wrapped up his trilogy of Thai-Lao romances last year with Lao Wedding but now the Sabaidee Luang Prabang director is back at it, making another cross-border romance in the same vein.

In Always on My Mind (คิดถึงทุกคืน, Khid Tueng Took Khuen), he pairs Thai actors Pawarith Mongkolpisit and Sirachat Jianthaworn with Lao actresses Nuta Rajwonglao and Sangdawee Malisomchai.

It's in limited release in Bangkok, screening at around 7.30 or 8 nightly at the Esplanade Cineplex Ratchada.

Check out the trailer embedded below.

Also opening this week in Thai cinemas is Sat2Mon, a.k.a. Saturday Night to Monday Morning (คืนวันเสาร์ถึงเช้าวันจันทร์, Khuen Wan Sao Thueng Chao Wan Jan).

It stars "Dan" Worrawech Danuwong, the multi-hyphenate musician and actor who adds writer-director to his roster of titles with this romantic comedy released by Sahamongkolfilm International.

Dan got his start 12 years ago as a member of the boyband trio D2B. He's been the star of seemingly dozens of romantic comedies that have been huge hits, among them Noodle Boxer, 32 Thunwa and Bangkok Sweety. He's even done drama, with last year's musical romance The Melody.

According to The Nation's Soopsip column today, Dan took a year off from music while he wrote the screenplay and prepared to make Sat2Mon, honing his directorial chops by helming music videos and a TV show.

He stars in Sat2Mon as a TV producer in love with an anchorwoman (Niranat Victoria Coates), and he convinces her friend (Ungsumalynn Sirapatsakmetha) to help him woo her, but things of course become complicated.

There's an English-subtitled trailer for this one, embedded below.
