de Soju, Julho 21, 2021

Hello everyone! I have arrived once again with another "Soju's Lakorn Recommendations by Tag" article, and this time, we will be focusing on the tag "Slap Kiss".

"Slap Kiss", if you might not know, is a sub-genre within Thai entertainment where there's a very affirmed formation of patriarchy, physical forcefulness exerted by the male leads, lots of angst, and so on. 

"Slap Kiss" dramas often contain a revenge plot where the ML and the FL do not like each other, the ML has some sort of misunderstanding towards the FL, or they are forcefully tied to each other by marriage/loan.

To be a viewer of this niche theme, you have to enjoy watching the chaos. Which is not for everyone.

Also, not every title within this article is going to be for you. But the beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder so I hope you all find something good to watch!

I have also created a very original rating system[1] for the Slap-Kiss genre.

Extra HotRape + Cheating / Death
HotRape / Beating / Cheating
MediumMan-handling / Dub-con
MildAngry kiss / Jealousy 2
Lemon & HerbsThere is none. I'm sorry. 

Within this article, I am going to share with you "Slap Kiss" lakorns that I have either watched and enjoyed, plan to watch, or know are popular in the Slap-Kiss viewing community.  

The article is going to be quite lengthy so I do hope you have your tea ready!

The Slap Kiss genre has forever been a very controversial area within the Lakorn viewing community. 

However, it has forever been a silent understanding that dramas are just pieces of fiction and slap kiss also has a group of people it appeals to. Those who enjoy the crazy, watch it. Those who don't, don't bother. 

This has led to an almost peaceful air in the Thai Lakorn watching community, allowing viewers who enjoy watching the spicy titles to watch without being shamed or seeing heated 'cancel riots' going around about it by everyone who cannot agree with the genre. 

There are so many of these dramas simply because there is a market for them. I wish to urge everyone to always absorb the goodness and discard the bad. 

Remember, that just because we are poor, does not mean we will bump into a millionaire heir who will crazily fall in love with us. Likewise, someone who kidnaps and rapes us is not our future lover — they are a future jail resident.
In addition to this article, I have prepared a voting list for everyone to always add in new Slap-Kiss drama recommendations and help the viewers to find new things to watch. 

I hope you all, slap kiss viewers, enjoyed reading the article and found something to add to your PTW list. 

Let me know your favorite Slap-Kiss dramas!

See you in the next one!
