The eagerly awaited sequel to the Thai Film Yaem Yasothon, Yaem Yasothon 2, is scheduled for release on 3rd December 2009. The Thai Film, Yaem Yasothon 2, is a country comedy and stars Mum Jokmok ( Petchtai Wongkamlao) as Yaem.
Yaem Yasothon with its garishly colourful costumes and typical Thai humour, was a huge success for Mum Yokmok and Yaem Yasothon 2, with a mixture of Thai and Western comedy is expected to be a worthy successor. One sad event that delayed the filming of Yaem Yasothon 2 for a short while, was the tragic deaths of 3 people in the family of the owners of the farm where filming was taking place, who were struck by lightening.
Yasothon where Yaem Yasothon 2 (แหยมยโสธร2) was filmed, is a town in Isaan in N.E.Thailand and is the birthplace of Petchai Wongkamlao.
