We know our readers can't get enough of K-dramas, but we also know that you occassionally enjoy recommendations for other Asian countries like these Japanese dramas on Viu or Thai movies to watch on Netflix.

And if you love epic revenge themes with a side of creepy, you're gonna get a kick out of watching Thai series Girl From Nowhere.

Season one actually came out back in 2018, but it's currently enjoying the fourth spot on Netflix's most watched shows in the Philippines today. 

Synopsis: A mysterious, clever girl named Nanno transfers to different schools, exposing the lies and misdeeds of the students and faculty at every turn. (via IMDb)

"Many people think," the trailer begins, "That the time spent in school is the most beautiful time in their lives... Is that so?"

Girl From Nowhere Audience Reviews

Fans of the show can't get enough of Nanno (played in equal parts brilliant and devilish by actress Chicha Amatayakul) and many Reddit users agree that it's a highly enjoyable, unconventional series.


As IMDb user msghall notes in their review, "While not the most technically proficient series, Girl From Nowhere is entertaining, perplexing, and totally Thai. Most of the episodes end up with morality tales that don't always fit western mores. You almost expect typical lessons learned, but this show surprises with its sophistication in grappling with societal issues, especially involving young people. It doesn't take itself too seriously, dropping in scenes (like the one in ep 2 with the main character dancing to herself in the schoolyard) that you don't expect." (via IMDb)
