Cubic’s ratings turned out to be the dark horse this year, quite a surprise to the channel. The advantage about it is the cast members get to be on many variety shows and here is one from Morning-News on April 9, 2014.
The boy-man in red is Kotee, he dressed up as Mei Jing 🙂
MC: Here they are, Lin Lan Se and Cubic.
They greet the MC.
Kotee walks down the steps with the help of Bomb Tanin.
Bomb: Be careful, Pee Ko.
MC: (To Kotee) By the time you come down, we would be running out of time.
MC asks Kotee if he’s hooked to the lakorn Cubic.
Kotee: I’m telling you, the man’s acting is in the trend. (Bomb laughs)
MC: Why is that?
Kotee: His acting was so stiff (cardboard wise) it created quite a stir on the internet. (Everyone laughs.) But many people didn’t know that Nong Bomb had to act that way because, in the novel, if you read it again carefully, the hero was much stiffer than this. Bomb had already toned it down.
MC: Is that so?
Kotee: It’s true.
MC: Let him say it himself. Here you go, why were you so stiff like that, some said?
Bomb: It’s actually in the character.
Kotee: Come out of that earthen jar first to talk to me. Don’t talk to me as if you are hiding in a jar talking.
Bomb: It’s actually in the character. In the beginning, the hero didn’t care about anybody’s feeling, but after he engaged in many missions with the heroine, overcome those together, and once the feeling of love came into the picture, many could see that the hero started to smile and have the feeling of worry in his eyes and face’s expression, as though he’s worried about someone, which was different from the beginning where he’s very quiet and stiff.
MC: So that’s the acting.
MC: You acted to be stiff.
Bomb: It’s true that there were some scenes in the beginning where I was adjusting into the character, but in the later half, it could be seen that I wasn’t as stiff as in the beginning.
MC: So, that means he just acted cool, in Cubic?
Mint: In the lakorn, yes.
MC: Didn’t he act cool in the lakorn, like this…(MC stretches himself up.)
Mint: He would rarely smile or express his feeling. He kept his feeling underneath like he’s shouldering the whole world.
Bomb: His character had a very stressful background.
Kotee says after this show, his neck will be hurt looking left and right (due to Bomb and Mint’s height) so he tells Bomb to stand next to Mint instead.
Kotee: Why so tall?
MC: (To Mint) She played the role of a young girl. You didn’t worry to look pretty at all.
Mint: This role totally changed the characters I played before. It’s the character of a tough/naughty girl, no need to worry to look pretty, and in the story, she’s not pretty at all.
MC: But you are actually pretty but played the role not caring about looking pretty.
Kotee agrees there were many scenes she didn’t care about making herself look pretty.
MC: (To Kotee) What’s her character’s name?
Kotee: Lin Lan Se!
Bomb: That’s me.
Ko-tee: I meant Khun Bomb’s name was Lin Lan Se.
MC: And hers?
Kotee: Why do you have to ask? I couldn’t remember. (Bomb whispers to him.)
MC: Let’s do it in order, you were naughty, and you…today it’s him here. You make Lin Lan Se’s face. (Bomb does it.) Lin Lan Se is happy…Lin Lan Se is sad…Lin Lan Se is angry…(Bomb acts accordingly.)
Bomb: That’s too fast, I couldn’t keep up. (He laughs.)
MC: No, you don’t have to do anything, they were all the same faces.
Bomb: It’s just a tiny bit different. It’s a character who normally doesn’t express his feeling.
MC: Right, whatever he’s feeling, his face would remain stern. Do it one more time, Lin Lan Se is quiet…happy…angry…sad (Bomb makes his face accordingly. Omg…it’s so funny.) This is how Lin Lan Se is, but once he’s in love, he starts changing.
MC: That will be noticed during the episodes coming this Friday and Wednesday, right?
Mint and Bomb say yes.
MC: Let’s try when Lin Lan Se is in love….
Bomb: Wait, how is it? Wait, let me think. (He glares at Mint.)
MC: And that when you are in love?
Bomb: Actually, it would turn out in the way that he would ask her to do this and that for him, wanting her to stay close all the time. If you see the lakorn, it was like he made this and that excuse, like an old dog’s trick, so she would come to see him everyday.
MC: All right. Do you know the dog’s trick, Khun Ekarat (another MC)?
Ekarat: Throw it back to you. Haha..
MC: How about your own self, not Lin Lan Se, but Bomb Tanin?
MC: Happy…sad…angry…in love. (Bomb does it accordingly.) Is that quite all right, Ko?
Kotee: Yes, (He points to MC himself.) Sad…
Kotee: You ordered others so try it yourself.
MC: Sad (points at Ko-tee)
Kotee: No, not that.
Kotee complains that MC is using his right as the owner of the show to order people to do anything, wear anything. (They laugh) Wait until it’s his own show.
MC: Mint…Ruetainak, a tough student…
Kotee walks as a tough girl. MC tells her to walk over as a tough girl. Bomb says do it, it’s the way she actually is.
Mint walks a little.
MC: How’s it, Mint? It’s surpassed your expectation,hasn’t? A great feedback.
Mint: Yes, the feedback is great. As I said, it came from the novel so I was under a lot of pressure whether or not the viewers and the readers would love it. But once the ratings came out, the viewers loved it, we are delighted.
MC: How about you, Bomb?
Bomb: It was stressful during the shooting. We wanted people to love every character and not just the main leads because there were many more actors/actresses and newbies in it too. We are happy that people loved every character.
MC: This coming Friday-Saturday….will be the finale.
Mint: Yes, it’s getting close.
MC: And there will be an enormous change of both characters, (to Mint) you will become more feminine?
Mint: No, I will be the same but will come back to Hong Kong again in the story. I will try to help him but unsuccessful because the villain escape again.
Bomb: A plan will be drawn up to catch the villain, also there will be a scene that everybody has been waiting for, a building trembling down.
Mint: Yes, that’s a big scene.
Bomb: There will be an action scene, and the scene the hero try to find the heroine where you will see the feeling of Lin Lan Se change a whole lot, a lot of his love.
MC says so we shouldn’t miss the episodes this weekend. Then he introduces two singers of the lakorn’s soundtrack.
1) Peck Palitchoke -song title, Rak KhrangRaek Lae Khrang SutThai (the first love and also the last)
2) Praew KanitKul -song title, Yok Wen Reuang Thoe (except yours)
Song (1) sang in the name of Lin Lan Se, Peck says the (song) producer told him to sing stiffly like how Lin Lan Se is (laugh). The hero is a tough man who won’t show his feeling with something hidden in his heart.
MC: Because he never loves anyone, this is his first and also his last.
Peck says that’s why he had to make…(stern face)…face in the recording studio, because the (song) producer went to see how they portrayed the roles and said to do it like this….(stern face) so he needed to do the same. Hahaha.
MC: And Praew, you sang the song for Cubic (the girl).
Praew says it’s for the heroine. She says they actually made the song in two versions, the first one, was a slow song with another meaning, but the song lyricist went to see Bomb and Mint act and realized the heroine was quite naughty so she rewrote the lyrics and melody and it’s the second version, and it’s the current song.
MC says both singers are close friends and they have the chance to work for the same lakorn. MC tells them to sing the songs starting with Peck. Peck sings the song.
Kotee says it’s a very lovely song. MC congratulates both that their songs went up the top-10 chart. He says next is the song for the heroine. Praew sings the song.
MC says both are lovely songs and reflect the characters very nicely. Kotee says if you close your eyes and listen to the song, the heroine’s face would come up. MC leaves the songs to download. Both singers tell the download numbers. MC thanks them.
MC turns to Bomb and tells him to act the scene that loved by many, where he sent Ruetainak back and gave her 10 millions.
Bomb says it’s a sentimental scene, and asks if he should do the scene now. MC tells him to do it.
Mint as Nak: When you smile, you look very handsome.
Bomb as Lan Se: Ruetainak, you will stay in my memory…forever. Your 20-millions debt is now voided and once you arrive in Thailand, someone will give you 10 millions.
Bomb looks at Mint and they both are feeling shy. MC says see you in the last 2 episodes this coming Friday and Saturday, don’t miss it. MC says thank you to all. MC teases Kotee he could hardly move in that dress. Kotee says it’s fine. They all greet us good-bye.
Is it Friday yet? 🙂
