Cast & Credits
Nadech Kugimiya is so dreamy in this that I couldn't even believe. I've watched episodes of some of his lakorns (90% of them with Yaya Urassaya), but in none of them he was nearly THIS handsome, and, yeah, he's always been beautiful. It's just that, in this, he's achieved a whole other level of sexiness. And, what's more, his character is complete as a man and was the main reason why I watched this lakorn. As for complete, I mean, he was understanding, intelligent, kind, sexy, confident, competent, funny, cute, gosh, he was the perfect man and husband material. I WANT KHUN SIGNH. NOW. GIMME.
On the other hand, as complete as he was, the female lead was extremely annoying most of the time, that's why I said that I watched it until the end because of him. At the beginning I found her extremely selfish, always causing trouble for everyone and still asking to remain at the farm shamelessly. That really pissed me off. Thank God Khun Singh existed, because if he didn't, I wouldn't have been able to put up with Noona.
I didn't care about any side characters, I hated her mother and skipped most of her scenes.
The couple scenes were cute, but it lacked deepness... in the skinship department, if you know what I mean. I felt as if I was watching a show for children. But, okay, it was cute.
Now I'm going to cry on a corner after becoming a Singh addict. Don't mind me.
STORY: Simplistic and overdone. That being said, the drama didn't try to be more than it was. The story mainly revolved around the leads' love story, and that's really what made the drama worth watching. It was awesome seeing Singh go from the tough guy to an adorable little cinnamon roll. Mew's character was good too, and it was nice to finally have a heroine who will actually stand up for herself once in a while.
ACTING/CAST: Nadech stole the lakorn easily. He was so hot as Singh; seeing him play a sexy guy instead of a goody-two shoes made my life.
Mew did a great job with what she was given. Her character didn't have much depth, though. I was pleasantly surpirised at how great the chemistry between Nadech and Mew was. A lot of it was he height difference... Mew is so tiny compared to Nadech, but they were honestly couple goals in this drama.
The side characters overacted as usual, but they were funny and kept the lakorn lightm
MUSIC: Nothing amazing, but the theme was good and blended well with the drama.
REWATCH VALUE: I'd rewatch for the couole scenes and skip through the rest of the plot. But I'd watch it again.
This drama is for lakorn lovers who love a good romance but don't want to have to endure the usual emotional rollercoaster. The lakorn is logical and doesn't fall into the usual stereotypes with the leads breaking up because they think one is lying or because they believe the evil girl, etc.
