Thesis - The Thai Remake Culture: An Analysis of Thai Television Drama

This research will examine the phenomena of what I call “Thai remake culture” in Thai society. I will carry out this investigation by discussing soap opera. Unlike British soap opera, Thai soap opera is characterised by the same storyline being remade many times. This study will analyse some selective Thai opera case studies are in order to identify a model of remake culture, one which will draws on structuralism.
