Untitled[edit]

This article needs to establish whether a Lakorn is just a translation of "television serial" or more than just that. If it's just a translation it should be redirected to the english title, or moved to Thai television serials. Joe D (t) 19:14, 11 May 2005 (UTC)

I think it's pretty well explained that it's a Thai term, and a specific part of Thai culture, and I think it's helpful to have the article named as it is. Wisekwai 16:43, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Clean Up[edit]

This article is full of useful information but is in need of serious clean-up. All the examples are cited arbitrarily without connections, and some issues should be grouped together. I will try to do this and let's see if there are any comments. 98.248.36.119 (talk) 04:10, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Thai[edit]

The same kind of soap opera is also in Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Exactly the same kind but the Malaysian and Thai has longer runtime, but the style is basically the same. Consider move back to Lakorn.--110.49.249.40 (talk) 17:02, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

I couldn't find any reliable sources that use the term "lakorn" to refer specifically to this television genre (only fan-based websites). If really necessary this could probably be renamed to something like Southeast Asian television soap opera/drama, but lakorn itself is problematic in that it properly refers to other traditional dances and plays as well. --Paul_012 (talk) 17:17, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

The word lakorn[edit]

As noted above, the only sources I could find that use the word lakorn as a regular term are fan websites, which are not reliable sources. I have gone through the article, replacing the word with English terms. The article is still in horrible shape, though. It will probably need to be re-written if it is to be taken seriously. --Paul_012 (talk) 13:56, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
