Lakan is about a man who wants to escape the reality of his life where he can rest from the hardships of the city and feel the simplicity of life and a man from the province who has a great responsibility to their tribe. The two form an intimate relationship without knowing that it is love despite their sexual orientations. (Source: Lakan Series Facebook Account) Edit Translation
Different Could’ve been BetterSo Lakan starts on a wonderful premise of showing us the life of a closeted guy in a tribe and he is faced with the eventuality of marrying a girl & leading the tribe -which he is not ready for as yet! He runs away to his grandmothers place and cuts off his ties with the tribe while the other lead comes from the city wanting to escape the path that has been chosen for him, he runs to the countryside to visit his nanny! Both meet and the rest as they say is history!
Now Lakan could’ve been so much better with its execution but then the Super Typhoon Goni which struck Philippines changed the entire path of the series is what I think!
The shoot locations where heavily damaged and that’s what prompted them to alter the storyline a tad bit but then they couldn’t recover from the altered storyline.
Another reason what I think is that the leads chemistry which was evident through the initial episodes suddenly drops down & then picks up in episode 7 - might be because the director felt being too steamy would seem insensitive at that time! ( this is what I think and it’s solely my opinion)
We don’t know how this would’ve progressed had the typhoon not struck the location but that being said the story I somewhat feel was okay towards the end!
The first kiss was so forced that I couldn’t believe that the leads were actually a couple in real life but then they redeem the whole series with the steamiest water sex scene which was so passionate, real & so full of chemistry, love it sets the scene on fire ( Episode 8) don’t miss
So overall Lakan is watchable the supporting characters especially the Nanny who passes away in the series have done a fantastic job!
For their chemistry & their passion - both extremely hot looking actors we can watch Lakan & hope that Season 2 does justice to the chemistry & story!
Um pouco de paciência ou de dinheiro?Eu achei muito interessante a serie não só pelo bl mas também pelo fato de mostrar essa população indígena e consequentemente mostrar esse lado incrível da Ásia, os locais a historia em si tinha muito potencial, os atores tem muito potencial e espero vê-los em outros dramas futuramente. Um bom roteiro e uma boa produtora poderia ter feito essa serie muito grande. Espero no futuro que invistam em mais series assim.
A ost é boa, é simples e bem tranquila. Adorei como em alguns eps você se sente extremamente bem e em outros fica um pouco confuso, foi uma mistura boa, no geral a series só erra mesmo pela falta de recurso, O plot foi bom, o casal tem uma química boa, a trama é interessante, só realmente queria ter visto mais e de uma forma melhorada.
