We're off to a great start in 2017 in Lakornland, when one of the most anticipated lakorns finally started airing on January 23, Kleun Cheewit starring Mark Prin and Yaya Urassaya. What other lakorns are on the horizon in 2017? Well, that's always up in the air somewhat, as few lakorns get fixed dates until right before they air, but we'll take a look at some of the lakorns we should see this year.
The Cupid Series is coming.

You can find part one of 2016 in Lakornland here, and 2016 Lakorns Subbed and Recommended (Part Two) here. Want to take a look back at 2015 lakorns from last year's end of the year posts? Then check out parts one (subbed lakorns recommendations), two (lakorn news and trends), three (polls) and four (look ahead to 2016 lakorns).

2017 Lakorns Excited, PotentialMAYBE?Blergh! - This is just my opinion, no one else's, but I wanted to give some input on the upcoming 2017 lakorn season. This list is by no means complete, since lakorn dates are almost always up in the air anyway, (sometimes lakorns will come out years after being filmed, yet other lakorns are filmed and aired at the same time!) so I just wanted to highlight some of the ones that caught my attention.
