Khun Chai Pawornruj is a young government employee working in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with a bright future in diplomatic affairs. Although he is the second son of the Juthathep family, he is seen as inferior and labeled the “Khun Chai of the Kitchen” because his birth mother was a concubine of the Juthathep household. Broken-hearted after the girl he had been dating suddenly broke up with him and pushed into a sudden matchmaking from his grandmother, Khun Chai Pawornruj finds solace in receiving a new assignment to go to Switzerland as a diplomat. There, he meets Rasa, who is on her travels in Switzerland with her friends, and they fall in love. However, what he doesn't know is that Rasa is actually Than Ying Wanrasa, daughter of a royal prince. Will this young diplomat let his inferior status as the son of a concubine get in the way of true love?

Although this could’ve been done in a better way, it still managed to win against the first brother’s story.

Khun Chai Pawornruj is the second part of the Suparburoot Jutathep series. It picks right where the first story left off. There were no flashbacks or explanations used; the viewer is immediately thrown into the second brother’s story and struggles. Unlike his four brothers who come from noble descendant, Chai Ruj’s mother was a servant for the first wife until his father raised her rank. So this inferiority complex followed him his entire life with the nickname “Khun Chai in the kitchen”. Although his brothers respect him and love him like an elder and a younger brother, some people outside aren’t of the same view.

Chai Ruj’s love story was in Switzerland with his childhood play-mate that he didn’t recognize. This was practically a travelling love story until the truth unfolds about the identity of his royal girl. The love story was a problem of ranks and some lies when Chai Ruj struggled so much to find love after his first heartbreak. Although he’s a diplomat for the Ministry of Foreign affairs, he was a proud man of his servant bloodline just like his noble side. Chai Ruj is a humble down-to-earth man, the kindest and the most caring between his brothers which made his character show a lot of interesting sides.
There are two reasons why this part managed to raise a little in rating; the first must be the diversity of side characters mainly the fellow travellers in Switzerland and their side love-stories that added a good balance. The second reason was once again, the bromance. The brothers stickled together for Chai Ruj especially Chai Yai (the elder brother) and Chai Pat who’s the closest to him, they showed a lot of caring and support for their second brother.

On the other hand, what this part lacked was the continuation of events; the annoying rejections, developments and some characters. For instance, Granny Oon overdid it with her meddlesome attitude. While the two Taewaporn girls were building that hateful tension which will come in Chai Pat and Chai Pee’s stories. I can obviously tell that Marathee is going to be that evil second female lead type in the upcoming story; I need to brace myself.

The acting was medium; Pope did well while his leading lady sucked so badly, she’s a pretty actress but her smiles, laughs and some attitudes appeared so awkwardly on screen. I know that’s she a newbie so I shouldn’t get too harsh on her but she was bad. The chemistry was good though.

Watch if:
-You liked the first part because this is absolutely better.
-You like travelling romances.

Do not watch if:
-You dislike the push and pulls in romantic stories.
-You’re looking for something impressive.

Khun Chai Pawornruj’s love story was certainly better than Chai Yai’s with little flaws here and there. It was enjoyable overall and I am too darn excited to see the doctor Chai Pat’s share of the series.

delightful travel romance with melodrama

I waited for quite a few days before writing this review. I was absorbing the simple yet melodramatic lakron.

So going back to the plot the grandmother's insistence on keeping the marriage promise made by her father has taken one step ahead but this time it is more like forcing Khun Chai Pawonruj into doing it. Grandmother Oon goes beyond and finds a country girl which simply shows how much she dislikes him. Khun Ruj agrees so that his other brother gets freed from the promise, but fate takes him to Switzerland to meet his soulmate, who is also his childhood friend. After returning to Thailand the family drama takes over with their arranged partners. But the heavens bring them closer.

No wonder this series has more episodes(13) compared to others. it was better than the first series Khun Chai Taratorn. This series had four romances counting in the leads too, Khun Chai Ruj and Than Ying Wanrasa, Nu Ai and Khun Pakorn, Nu Auey and Khun Aun, lastly Kratin and Klao.
This series takes place in Switzerland, and I was immediately reminiscing about Bollywood movies where the leads fall in love in Switzerland. Though the backdrop was cliche it still had its mesmerizing charm. The leads both meet their loved ones and learn some ugly truth which changes the course of the trip.
The group traveling with the friends is a lifetime experience, giving you a world to discover new places and sometimes people. Whom you thought you knew but are different. This clears off old misunderstandings and truths revealed making this tour worth it. I was so excited to see how the family reacted when the whole game of lies and truth was disclosed. But the family was on another level to give anxiety and headache to audiences.
This series also touched me to the fact that they both went on to sacrifice title for their love. They each take few steps to finally understand the true meaning of love.
Kratin and Klao's story was simple but they made it enjoyable with the country magic tone in their body language.
The family of Taewaprom seems like a gold digger in a facade of marital promise. There are lots of friends teasing and troubling in the tour. Brotherly bond is so fun to watch they keep on teasing and supporting each other. They are growing on me.

Khun Chai Pawonruj (Pope Thanavat) performed it as if he was living the character. He is strong has excellent communication skills but is oppressed by society and lost communication with his loved ones, irony right. His dressing in suit showing the diplomat's aura, eyes had that respect tone for everyone. I got emotionally attached to him.
Than Ying Wanrasa (Mew Nittha) was ordinary, she didn’t have the depth of the character. Considering this is her first drama she had a lot to learn. She had a bland facial expression and being angry that Khun Ruj doesn't recognize her. Come on girl, Kids grow up and it is natural if one doesn't recognize them after growing up.
Kratin was awesome playing the country girl who is homesick due to personal reasons and had a hard time adjusting to the city. Her voice pitch and actions were excellent.
Grandmother Oon went beyond evil and I hated her like I wanted to get on the screen and throw her out of the script.
All the supporting characters were pleasant making the drama light comedy and sometimes melomance.

The OST was the same but it had a soothing healing texture to its music. This one seems more original and keeps the prototype of the drama.

I would definitely watch this drama again in the future because of how the simple story is weaved into a clever melodrama.

The travel romance was shot beautifully and I loved how they showed the beauty of Switzerland.

Considering they made FL a violin player, it was totally fake. At least if she acted playing she should have done a good job. or at least camera angles should have been adjusted to make it look real. I had a hard time digesting this scene.

Kratin first introduction to Taewaprom Family.

If you like societal differences family drama or lots of friends together, then you could watch this drama.

After completion of the drama, I had this one thought that how one wrong thing said could affect so many lives. And without knowing the truth people tend to make assumptions as they were unfaithful or gold diggers.
Since the marital promise has not been fulfilled, I guess the Taewaprom girls will bring more problems in the remaining series. Am going on for Khun Chai Puttipat.
