3 hours ago
Funny, we always thought director (Prince) Chatrichalerm Yukol’s Thai epic King Naresuan was at its biggest going to be a trilogy, but as we’ve now learnt that episode five is now due to open in Thailand in the new year, it looks like we were a tiny bit wrong. The coin they must have spent on this ever expanding series is Immense, but then it always helps with getting your funding when you’re a member of the Thai royal family.

Synopsis: The story begins with a young novel writer, Yan Dong (Teddy Chin) who faces obstacles in his writing career when he published his first spiritual and supernatural genre novel. He is being criticized all the time for his work. His manager Bao Jin (James Wong) has no choice but to take drastic action in order to fix the situation. Thus, Bao Jin challenges Yan Dong for his second novel. He dares Yan Dong to go further into the unknown realm so he can compose a more believable novel of the said genre.
