"Thai drama" has begun to sweep across Asia in recent years, especially Thailand's "BL drama" is quite competitive, including the popular "Because We Are Born a Couple" in Taiwan, and its movie version has also won over 100 million in Japan. At the box office, not only can you see exclusive categories on Netflix, but the TV station also introduces Thai dramas to open the eyes of Japanese audiences. Of course, the Thai drama version of "Meteor Garden" with the script from Japan has also attracted a lot of attention, and the participating actors also made special films.
Greeting Japanese audiences symbolizes that Thai dramas have successfully entered Japan. But apart from "Meteor Garden", in fact, most popular Special Database Thai dramas are "BL dramas", which also supports the point I made in 2017 : "Thailand can produce BL dramas that other countries cannot. ". Although Japan and South Korea have also launched "BL dramas" in recent years, it is still difficult to compete with Thailand in terms of volume and content. The author believes that there may be cultural factors in various countries behind this, so Thailand has a considerable space to volatilize, and then seize this place in the country. The theater circles in various countries lack a market that is carefully managed.
"Theatrical and then the film" or "the film and the theater"? From the process of "Because We Are Born a Couple" entering Asian countries, it can be found that this drama adopts the model of "first drama, then film", that is, first let the audience fully understand the drama through the long-running TV series, and then launch it. The movie version shows important endings or achievements, which is actually similar to the Japanese drama circle. For example, "Credit Fraudster JP" starring Masami Nagasawa also started from Japanese dramas, and various movie versions were launched later.
