Rosalin or Rose is the epitome of an heiress. She is the only heiress to Grandfather Narong, the owner of Hotel Queen Rose. Rose is spoiled, she always get what she wants ever since she was little. She throws a fit at everyone and anyone, even at her own grandfather for telling her that she should be an intern before she has a right to work for an administrative position at the hotel. Rose is pissed off at the fact that despite earning her Master’s Degree from abroad, she has to work for other people.
Rose decides to put her foot down and demands her administrative position or she will fly back abroad. She even throws a fit at Tawan who owns a flower farm called “Ban Rai Tawan” when he delivers the orchids for Rose’s welcome back party. But Rose is an heiress, she refuses to accept some orchids that came from a countryside’s farm. She believes she deserves roses that are grown abroad only. At the same time, Tawan refuses to take her crap and fires back insults. Rose retaliates by signing him a check in order to get him to admit defeat. Tawan tears up the check in return and tells her that she cannot buy him, no matter the amount of money.
During the ruckus, Rose is taken by a man high on drugs. He uses her as a hostage since he was fired by her. Rose orders Tawan to help her but he tells her that she needs to plead with him first. Tawan even taunts the man with the knife to stab Rose. Rose is angry beyond reasons but she has no choice but to plead for Tawan’s help. Tawan successfully rescues her from the addict. Rose hopes that she will never have to meet Tawan ever again.
However, the story does not end there as Chan, Tawan’s grandfather, is actually Narong’s best friend. In the past, Narong borrowed 20 million from Chan in order to build Hotel Queen Rose. Narong wants to meet up to pay him back the money, but Chan turns him down. Instead, he asks that if he can have Rose be his granddaughter-in-law instead. Narong is beyond ecstatic and accepts. He believes that Tawan will be able to change the wicked villain known as Rose into a lovely angel that she was before.
Rose is unable to accept this arranged marriage condition so she plans to flee back abroad. Peera, a close friend of Rose, along with his younger sister, Usawadee both continues to fuel the fire not to accept the marriage. At the same time, Tawan says that he would rather die than having to marry such a rotten rose. While he refuses to do so, a part of him wants to teach her a lesson. Chan and Narong are willing to compromise. They do not have to get married yet if they do not want to, but they must meet them halfway by allowing Rose to go live at Tawan’s farm for one year. After a year, they will not have to get married. But if she leaves before the year is over then the wedding will happen immediately. The heiress unwillingly goes to live at the farm.(credit to:kudalakorn)

I should say this was most ridiculous and at the same time most entertaining lakorn I've ever watched.

I've watched this kind of 'rich spoiled girl turned to good person' -dramas before so I was really curious how the story would go in this one. The beginning was promising; funny scenes and lots of chemistry between leads so I was enjoying watching it. But somewhere around episode 8 or 9 the whole story started to get really ridiculous. It felt like in every episode someone got into accident or into fight and was admitted to hospital. And this lakorn had like all the cliches a drama could ever have. So after halfway it started to get really heavy and hard to watch forward. The ending was totally ridiculous, "let's pair every character with someone".

So I'd say if you're not into very cliche romance stuff, don't watch this. I gave overall points up to 7.0 because the first episodes were really fun and entertaining. The ending half of this drama I would rate something like 4.0.

This review may contain spoilers
I'm relatively new to Thai dramas. The previous drama I completed was I Wanna Be Sup'tar, and after that I gave up on Thai dramas, until the adaptation of Princess Hours came and I decided to get myself accustomed to the Thai language while waiting for the episodes.

I shall be completely honest; I watched this drama purely for Davika Hoorne (Mai). Imo she's arguably the most attractive Thai actress currently active (not that I've seen many though). The main reasons that kept me off Thai dramas previously were my general distaste for the male leads they pick [1] and the ridiculous tropes they employ [2]. I'm happy to say that the male lead was fine in this instance (exactly why I decided to try it) and the two of them have great chemistry but unfortunately the second half of this drama was riddled with typical Thai drama cliches.

Did I mention that Davika Hoorne is unbelievably gorgeous? She looked stunning in every single piece of clothing she wore; the drama was like her individual fashion show. She was absolutely hilarious as Rosalin. It's not the first drama I watched her in actually. I vaguely remember dropping a drama where she was being tortured by every single character in it and I thought then that she was a pretty bad actress. This drama changed my mind. She has great comedic timing and great gestures as well. I mean, some actors have awkward hands when they act (like they don't know where to put them and what to do with them), but perhaps playing such a flamboyant character makes things a little easier. On the other hand, Kan who plays the male lead... Well, I'd say that he was average? He didn't really shine, but he wasn't bad at all. I guess I just didn't remember much of him. The triad boss character did leave an impression though, in that he was so stiff that even I took notice. The other side characters were all decent. This drama is essentially a comedy, and I think they did the comedic parts pretty well.

SPOILER ALERT

The drama started out great actually. There were a couple of cringe-worthy staring-in-each-other's-eyes-for-longer-than-necessary moments, a couple of super-fake-fall-to-initiate-skinship moments, but they were tolerable. I mean, when the comedy was there, I can still neglect those. It not as if this is a Thai drama problem, Chinese and Korean dramas have this sort of interactions as well. However, following that, everything went wrong. I was expecting it though. They pretty much exhausted everything they could in the farm, and they had to pull all the tricks out of their hat to extend the story to 15 episodes (mind you, each was ~1h 30min long). What happened next? Well, they had a misunderstanding, he explained but the evidence was accidentally destroyed, she refused to listen, then the second leads came out to wreck havoc. It doesn't stop there though. There was this cycle of her getting injured and him getting injured, and those little moments of intimacy to appease the viewers for delaying progress (my assumption, that is). How many times did Rosalin get injured? I think about 10 times. By the time I got to episode 10, I could barely take it anymore. Then they played their last hand by using the amnesiac plot point. Faaaantastic.

There were more than a few moments where I was on the verge of pulling my hair out. Some parts were really incomprehensible. Like how Rosalin's grandfather claimed that he was totally not forcing her to marry Tawan but actually trying to help her. Typical dramaland bullshit. We all know that it's drama for the sake of drama. They should really stop using such weak excuses, but just brush over it. Why highlight your own flaws? And how Tawan objected to Rosalin modelling because it wasn't "meaningful"? *sigh* There's also Tawan's feud with the triad boss (his father killed his father) which was so lame. Additionally, towards the end where they encountered the thugs and he got off his car to check them out, I was shouting in my heart for him to just drive away. It was simply too illogical for words.

SPOILER END

I gave a passing mark for the story solely because of the first part (the second half should be forgotten). The acting was 8.5, on account of Davika Hoorne's acting as well as the cuteness of some of the secondary characters. I swear it's completely unbiased. The music was so-so. The drama actually has rewatch value, if someone is willing to cut off parts in the second half and end the drama where it should have ended. Overall it's not great, but compared to other Thai dramas where I was turned off by their synopses immediately (or by the cinematography in the first episode), I think this can actually be considered "refreshing". Just skip to the last episode when things get bad (or end it after their first kiss [3]).

-- Footnotes --

[1] I think some Thai actresses can be very beautiful, but in comparison the Thai actors are less appealing. They also tend to pair someone I like with someone I just don't get a good vibe from on first glance (I call this a lack of audience affinity but it may be just me). I've seen pairings with HUGE age gaps as well.

[2] Thai dramas also tend to sway towards the makjang end.

[3] On the topic of kisses, it's really weird that the only real lip-on-lip kiss in this drama is in the first episode.
