The letter said Madam Wan, her grandmother has passed away and left her several acres of land and her house in Howling Dog Creek village. Her grandmother had dreamed her granddaughter would leave Bangkok and come live in the country. Malinee or Ma for short can not sell the land to just anyone. If she does not want to keep the land, she must sell it to Poo Yai Lee only.

Poo Yai Lee falls in love with Ma instantly but is annoyed by city slicker personality, so he makes it a point to tease her. Ma learns to adjust to country life and falls in love Poo Yai Lee in a comic fashion.

Cast & Credits
This was my very first Thai lakorn! I fell in love with it from the first episode! I’d always wanted to try to watch one to see if I would like them, and this one came highly recommended for a first time lakorn watcher. It’s a cute rom-com, each episode just helped it get better and better!
This lakorn introduced me to Por Thrisadee – an actor who I definitely want to see more of after this drama! I loved him as a country guy, found his character adorable and cute. Paired up with Ploy the two of them were a great couple and the acting was done pretty good! I learned that in lakorns actors often come back to work with each again in another drama, and I’d like to see another drama with both of them as leads again.
And Pued! So adorable! He’s going to be a ladies killer when he grows up – such a cutie! I think he was my favorite character.
Dick was a dick. That is all I’ll say about him. Out of all western names he could have chosen he picked that name. It suited him very well. And Pathum got on my nerves a lot.
All in all though – the acting was good!
I loved the main songs to this lakorn! Even the annoying "Phee Poo Yai" by Buddhist Bless. It got stuck in my head a lot while watching it and they played it so much! But I loved the other songs – “Khao Kue Thur Chai Mai” [He Could Be The One] by Demi and “Hai Chan Doo Lae Thur” [Let Me Take Care Of You] by Nam Ronnadet was my favorite!
I can see myself rewatching this drama sometime. I really enjoyed it – it made me laugh, frustrated me, but at the same time the friendship was great and the love story was cute! I just have too many dramas I want to watch right now to rewatch it.
Overall – for my first lakorn I loved it! I’m glad I started off with watching this one. It also helped introduce me to the language. Thai used to sound very foreign to me but after watching this lakorn it helped me start to break that foreign barrier and begin to recognize the sounds and even a few words here and there. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a cute love story (:

Even two years later I still have good thoughts about this drama, it was a fun ride and made me want to continue watching lakorn.
