What is it about
Nudda and Lookkaew are two girls who have never met, but their paths finally crossed with a serious car accident.
Lookkaew passes away from her injuries, but Dada survives. Desperate to see her daughter again, Lookkaew’s mother asked the doctor to perform cosmetic surgery on Dada so that she will resemble Lookkaew.
Dada finally wakes up with amnesia and realises that there were a lot of things that ‘she’ went through before the accident. One of them includes her fiance, who is upset that she cheated on him. As she continues to adjust to her new life, some people are starting to uncover the truth…

Why you should watch it
The reviews say it all: viewers love this Thai drama! We can’t go through every single post on the internet, so we are just going to highlight a few key points that most fans can agree!
A heavy, exciting plot
Behind The Mask tackles a pretty heavy storyline, but it also manages to address several smaller arcs around the supporting characters. If you’re looking for a series that ties up all loose ends nicely, you won’t be disappointed!
Great acting by the main cast
It’s clear to see when a show has an amazing group of actors, and it shows. We would like to give a special mention to Aniporn, who had extra responsibility to juggle two characters for the duration of the series. To embody two characters is no easy feat!
And that’s our in-depth look on this series! It’s currently available to stream on dimsum entertainment in full, so if you’re intrigued for some good ol’ suspense during the MCO, check out Behind The Mask today.
