แมงมุม แล้ว ไง? ข้องใจเหรอคะ? พากย์ไทยทำให้หวานใจ
“แมงมุม แล้ว ไง? ข้องใจเหรอคะ? พากย์ไทยทำให้หวานใจ”(What about Spiders? Do They Make You Uneasy? Thai Dubbing Makes It Heartwarming) is a topic that many people in Thailand can relate to. Spiders, or แมงมุม (maeng-mum), are a common sight in households and can invoke fear in some individuals. However, with the introduction of Thai dubbing in foreign films and series, the perception of spiders has shifted. This article will explore the reasons behind this change in perception and answer some frequently asked questions about spiders in Thailand.
The Perception of Spiders in Thailand
Thai culture regards spiders as a symbol of bad luck, and some believe that they bring disease and misfortune. This belief may be due to the fact that some species of spiders found in Thailand are venomous, such as the black widow spider and the huntsman spider. When people hear or see a spider, they may feel uneasy or even terrified, especially if they are not familiar with the species.
However, in recent years, the perception of spiders in Thailand has changed. Many people have started to appreciate spiders because of the Thai dubbing in foreign films and series. Thai voice actors have made spiders more endearing and relatable to the audience. When a spider appears in a movie, it often has a cute and funny voice, and its actions are portrayed in a comical manner, such as in the popular movie “Charlotte’s Web.”
The Benefits of Spiders
Besides the endearing personality portrayed in movies, spiders have many benefits to the environment and humans. They are natural predators that help control the population of other pests, such as mosquitoes and flies, which carry diseases. In Thailand, where mosquito-borne diseases like dengue fever are common, spiders can help reduce the risk of such illnesses.
Spiders also have medicinal value. The venom of some spiders is used in the production of medicines, including painkillers and blood thinners. The venom of the tarantula spider is used in a medicine that is believed to be effective against stroke and heart diseases.
