And before we've known it,
October has arrived
Ten months of utter chaos has passed us by and we are almost halfway out 2020's door. While 2020 is almost over — thank everything good and holy — the year is just getting warmer in the Thai drama world. 


Within this article, I am listing down all of the Thai dramas that are currently slotted to air in 2020 and I am personally excited for.


Now please be advised that these dates are privy to change — especially due to our lovely and most favourite personality of 2020, Miss Rona — so these might go from 2020 release to 2021 or later.


Also please be aware that this article is lengthy, so do make yourself a cup of tea or two ≧◡≦. 

Additionally, this article is titled "Dramas" and will thus contain "Lakorns", "Series", and "Mixed" dramas. 

If you wish to know the difference between the three types of dramas, do read Brownie's article on this, she has done a wonderful job explaining what the three are in-depth.

However, for your convenience, I will briefly describe the three. 

Lakorns - 'Traditional' dramas made for an older audience. Each episode is usually longer than 1hr 20 mins. 
Eg: Likhit Huajai. 

Series - More youth-centric, 'modern' dramas. They are usually timed 20-45 mins per episode, and oftentimes also have many parts or seasons.
Eg: Oxygen The Series. 


Mixed - This is something that you can’t place in one category. It holds elements from both the above categories. Sometimes it is "traditional" and yet it comes in different parts, sometimes it is modern — appealing to the youth — and yet it also has some traditional Thai drama elements.
Eg: Subraburoot Juthathep Series. 



Works in both light & dark mode. Titles and Images redirect towards MDL's page. 
Alright then, now that all clarifications are done and dusted, let's get started.
