“Bangkok Breaking,” another of Netflix's Thai original shows, after “The Stranded”, is set to premiere globally on September 23, 2021, after its announcement confirmed in October 2019 and production beginning at December 3, 2020.
With K-dramas and C-dramas gaining in popularity, this Thai original on Netflix grabbed my vehement interest to say is the least. As an Asian TV drama fanatic for most of my life, this series is a bundle that packages all thriller elements under its wings showcasing the colourful Thai community beyond its street food, tropical beaches and festivals.
