Brother of the Year (2018)

Director: Witthaya Thongyooyong (as Vithaya Thongyuyong)
Stars: Sunny Suwanmethanont, Urassaya Sperbund, Nichkhu

Jane lives with her brother Chut with her being the only one doing everything around the house. But Chut will need to learn to take care of himself when Jane is about to get married and move to Japan.

★★☆☆☆

I feel scammed after seeing this. It was packaged as a comedy in its trailer, but no, it is a long, dragging drama about siblings, with a mediocre older brothers’ (somehow irrational) issues toward his smart and achiever little sister. Even Nickhun is not enough as a saving grace.
