Kade walked out to a party at the beach, where he met May, who was still in her wedding dress drinking alone. They started drinking together and people thought they were a couple, so they went along with it and he jokingly proposed to her. Afterwards, they went back to the hotel and spent the night together.

This is not the near perfect drama, but it doesn't disappoint me. I love this .
You all probably had known about the pattern of Thai lakorn. The hate turn love relationship, the very evil villain, the anger of our lead, the revenge plot, the slap kiss or sometimes forced kiss like -rape scene-, etc.
But don't let the latent pattern keep you away from this lakorn.
Jao Sao Yorm is a quite modest lakorn.
It's no stranger that our leads in bad terms in the beginning but soon they will have a good relationship. So did Kade and May . But in the process of reconciliation , we won't find excessive hate and anger that usually come from the heroin. I mean, there was a bad blood between May and her father, but she doesn't really detest her father excessively. So far, May is the reasonable character. She gets angry and misunderstood sometimes but she is willing to hear explanation and be calm. In other lakorn, I hate to see the heroin who seems hardly to accept the fact and unwilling to hear argument and be a drama queen. May is not a drama queen, she's pretty normal heroin.
P'Kade is the sweetest guy ever. He's affectionate, smart and reasonable person. He has a sense of responsibility. Sometimes he could be funny too. You won't get bored to watch him joking around but you probably cannot stand to see their lovey dovey. I like P'Kade chemistry with his father in law XD.
And the main point is, he never ever forces his love to Maysarin. Instead, He is willing to wait for her to love him. How sweet!
You know, in lakorn land, many hero force their love to the heroin to the extent that it becomes assault and harassment . Thankfully we won't see any inappropriate manner here.
The overall plot is predictable like any other lakorn.
I love the chemistry between the leads. Their acting is the best. They are so good to be together. If there is a shipper club for this couple, then I'm willing to join the bandwagon.
The most annoying thing of the drama is, the female villain. She is like forced to hate the lead heroin to add some spiciness of the drama. Especially, Sarut's mother. OMG, she's like come from Angry Planet plan to destroy the happiness of Earthy People. lol
note: I always give lowest score for rewatch value because I usually won't rewatch any show after completed it. Come on, there are many dramas waiting to be watched. :D
Now the review. Well, sort of... (SPOILER AHEAD)
I had been waiting for this one ever since I had laid my eyes on the teaser. Reason: 1) Mik, of course, do I even need to say! 2) Pooklook. I liked her in Roy Ruk (despite the masochism). As soon as I found out it'll be the two of them I knew that the chemistry will be sizzling and they went beyond my expectation (just as I expected). My computer screen was melting each time they were together in a scene (even the no-kiss ones).
The story is as the description says. It was nothing interesting for me but I didn't care because of the obvious reasons. There were the usual preposterous Lakorn cliches save few but I am well-conditioned to them after two years experience. The most gripping part of it was the relationship of the leads which is the heart of the show. I don't know about others but as long as they were before my eyes I didn't give a hoot about what absurdity was going around. There were some things though that were still difficult to digest. Like, why on earth was the evil-doer forgiven in the end without facing any consequence! His growing-up circumstances cannot be an excuse. And how on earth after exhibiting complete Game-of-thrones kinda intentions towards his half-sister everyone behaved so normal around him in the family at the end! Actually, I sorta fast-forwarded through some parts in the last one and a half episodes. Did I miss any revelation concluding to such kind of casual yet weird behaviour? Please let me know. But then again I told myself that it's a Lakorn where anything is possible which is the charm and addiction of it.
This is my favourite character of Mik till date. He has been playing these quarter-to-nice-boy roles with the mood-swing and attitude-swing of a schmuck toward his ladies in all of his shows so far. This was a complete 180-degree turn which I enjoyed the most. His acting is getting better with each of his projects and he is obviously pretty awesome at the chemistry department. And might I just add how wonderfully he played this role. His XXXL adorability added a triple sugar coating about my heart. It was simply delightful to watch him as a loving and devoted husband.
Pooklook's acting was better in her previous works. I think she's good in the heavy-duty intense and serious scenes. Here her chops were a bit lacking in the lighter ones. About the chemistry, of course, it's a given and I'll be repeating it in every other line I think, she is a pro. The last scene had my hair fly off my head (my real hair, no wig). I've never seen (that I can think of) a girl taking charge like that in a Lakorn before, except for Yaya when she was Nadech. Loved Pooklook's professionalism.
The side characters were just that, the side characters. I didn't find them anything remarkable. The personal assistants/bodyguard of both the leads were sweet. The runaway bride and groom bothered the heck out of me. Call me a selfish sadist or whatever but I despised them to bits and didn't want them to be happy. Both of them were extremely selfish. At first, I thought that the girl will be somewhat better than the jerk but she was as devious, blaming the girl whose man she ran away with, at any chance. But then the writer, director whoever, decided everyone deserves a happy ending and karma is your forgetful friend who gets back at no one except maybe a bit at the crazy MIL.
Altogether, I liked it since the story of the MCs relationship is as per my satisfaction and that's what I look for in a show like this, mainly. Although the girl was impossible in the beginning she came around soon enough and she had reasons for being how she was. I will watch it again just for Mik and Pooklook.
