Suea Gat is the second husband of PutGrong. She left her first husband and daughter to be with Suea Gat because she believed that he is a rich man but all along, he is only a theft. Wanting out of the marriage, PutGrong plan for the police to arrest Suea Gat and hopefully have him locked up for a very long time while pregnant with Gratin. Never wanted to have Suea Gat's child, PutGrong abandoned her baby in the care of Suea Gat sister's to raise and off to find herself a rich husband.
In search of a rich husband, PutGrong found single dad Khun Prasan – who is Ram's father. Khun Prasan fell head over heels in love and married her. Bringing along with her, she brings her first daughter from her first marriage to live at the mansion. Ram, on the other hand, was raised up to be a gentleman (by his nanny) does not accept PutGrong and her daughter as part of the family.
While Suea Gat stays in the prison, news broke out that PutGrong has gotten herself remarried, so Suea Gat broke out of prison in order to look for his daughter to plot his revenge– only to find out that Gratin doesn't have much knowledge of being lady-like. Taken her to comfort PutGrong at the house, Ram was there to witness the scene.
After Suea Gat's death, PutGrong had no choice but to take in Gratin. PutGrong then mistreated Gratin badly like not one of her own to which leads Ram’s nanny feeling bad for Gratin for she believes that it only the behavior that determines if you’re a good or bad person. For she believes Gratin is good. With the mistreat, Ram's feels sorry for Gratin as well and soon they both begin to fall in love not knowing. Add Synopsis In Spanish
Cast & Credits
STORY: Well-developed childhood romance that carries into adulthood. I was fully invested in the Ram-Krathin relationship the whole time.
The misunderstandings actually didn't follow the lakorn stereotype. They were frustrating, but they didn't drag on and on like others do. Additionally, they were understandable. Ram's and Krathin's misunderstandings weren't about them thinking the other person was evil or bad, but about being upset that the other person didn't confide in them, which was a problem the drama displayed in their relationship from the very beginning.
Pupe needed to die in a hole. She unfortunately was the typical nang rai. I did like that Ram was very direct with her, instead of the usual "I don't want to dishonor her" "I don't want to hurt her" stuff.
The evil people, especially the mother, were typical lakorn crazy. I skipped a lot of her scenes because they got so repetitive. The stupidity of the characters also got to be a bit much. The mother literally (spoiler) kills people, and they KNOW she killed those people, yet they still let her run free and do whatever she wants. Then when something bad happens, they're all shocked and trying to figure out who the culprit could be. It takes talent to be that stupid.
But all in all, the plot was engaging, well-paced, and emotionally evocative. There were a few inconsistencies here and there and a few forgotten characters near the end, but those were all very minor flaws.
ACTING/CAST: Pope is wonderful, as usual. He was able to add depth to Ram, making him a supaburoot (gentleman), but also showing that Ram was always a little childish, even after he grew up.
I was impressed by Diana.She did a very good job, especially for a newcomer. She had good chemistry with Pope, and though she's a little stiff here and there, on the whole she acted well. Diana gave Krathin strength without falling into the trap of apathy.
I've only seen Alex in Raeng Pradtanah, and liked him alright as the villain in that one. But he really outdid himself in this drama. Every little mannerism he had pointed to his gentlemanly character; he even softened his voice and spoke quietly and evenly, like a gentleman would. I had SLS so bad because of him XD
Mae Nim was a little annoying, and Putkrong became boring to watch. But all the supporting cast's acting was good.
MUSIC: Lovely. I'm fairly certain that whoever wrote the music for Padiwaradda also wrote this drama's.
REWATCH VALUE: This isn't one I personally would watch on repeat, but I'll probably come back to it again in a few months or so. It'll definitely be worth it to rewatch Ram and Krathin grow up together, now that I know what happens later.
All in all, a lovely drama that plays into a few lakorn stereotypes here and there, but is an overall satisfying watch.
