Soju’s 35 Beginner-Friendly Thai Movies For Winter

H E L L O    E V E R Y O N E 
When the days are cold and the nights colder, sometimes a mug of hot cholate, warm sweaters,  and blanky is not enough to truly make our hearts warmer.

I personally believe that the cold seasons are the best times to do anything, especially watching movies that might make me cry since I’m a big crier.

This is not me saying that these movies are not recommended when it’s hot outside, after all, you can watch a good movie in any weather or season! 

In this article, I am sharing with you 35 of my top  Thai movies from various genres. 


Movies that made me laugh, cry, that taught me lessons or reminded me of a time when I was a young school girl. 
This list is also great for people who have never watched Thai movies before and want to begin!

Because the topic surrounds movies, I will attempt to not give too much away, so I will simply give a 1 – 2 liner description about each movie.  
Unlike my other articles, this one is short and simple so please enjoy it! I also hope that you find at least one title that interests you! <3

He’s not her brother. He’s mine kek.

Me… Myself (2007)
Present Perfect (2014)
Love is limitless. 
That is all. 

Trust me, watch this.

Sometimes if you love someone, you do what is best for them and not what is best for you. 
Years into my drama-watching journey, I have realised I watch a lot more movies than dramas. 
Movies are short and simple, the entire message is expressed within 2 – 3 hours and that’s lovely for me. 

Fictional works such as dramas and movies aren’t obligated to teach us moral values or lessons, but I believe that there is always something positive to take away from every film. 
My motto is to always absorb the good and filter out the bad. Hopefully, if you did find something you like here, you will also absorb some good messages along the way. 

Hopefully, the above list of 35 movies is going to entertain you and keep you warm for the remainder of the winter season. 

Feel free to share with me any of your comfort movies. I would love to watch it!

Until the next one, friends!  ~ Soju
