The Star and Studio of Hit Thai Movie Bad Genius Are Back With a Romance-Thriller
Homestay is about living a second life.
(SPOT.ph) If you're a Thai movie follower, you might recall Bad Genius, the heist thriller from Thailand, which hit local theaters in October 2017, or a family rom-com called Brother of the Year in October 2018. If you can't get enough of Thai blockbusters, GDH 559, the studio behind Bad Genius and Brother of the Year has a new film called Homestay. It also stars Bad Genius' Teeradon "James" Supapunpinyo.
Supapunpinyo plays a high-schooler named Min, who dies—and is already in the morgue of a hospital—before being brought back to life. The only thing is, it's not actually Min who returns, but the wandering spirit of a different person who was given a new chance at life by someone called the Guardian (Nopachai Chaiyanam). But much like a homestay (where someone stays with a local during a trip), the new Min's body is also temporary. He has to figure out who killed the old Min within 100 days or else lose his newfound family, friends, and love.
The film is based on Japanese author Eto Mori's novel, Colorful and is directed by Parkpoom Wongpoom. There's no word yet on the exact release date for the film, but it's set to hit local cinemas soon.
