overall educational and cute

like every other medical dramas out there- this isn't an exception on educating the viewers, however I don't know how plausible each treatment is, it was entertaining to watch. The medicinal methods in the drama must have been heavily based on real life. I kept pausing mid way and googling which ingredients did what and it was fun searching even though a big chunk of it was in Thai. The medicine and the whole concept of historical doctors was fascinating overall.

The characters were so much fun. Everyone had the typical family role, but there were two wives. I liked how it was normalized and showed how the relationship between everyone under the household worked. Thong-On being the typical little brother, Thong-Thae being the typical older brother. Everyone was so typical but had their own bright personalities.

The romance part was a cute build up. The chemistry was top notch! Their annoyance turned to bickering to friends to lovers was so adorable. There are comments were they didn't like how the romance was kept on pushing back, but I personally think that they needed some struggles and danger for them to realize their own feelings.

The story was great, but the reason why it only got an eight star was because the pacing isn't the greatest. The main character switches back and forth to Bua and Thong-On depending on who and what the focus is in the episode. That was fine- but there were so many irrelevant happenings going on in some episodes. No spoilers here, find out for yourself and understand what I mean because I still highly recommend watching this drama serie.

It's highly addicting to the point where I installed a vpn so that I could watch from a different website that is not available in my country. I would probably re-watch this after sometime later again with a friend ᵕ̈

(After understanding the smallest bit of Thai, Bua's lines on the last episode was so romantically cute. The translation didn't do any justice!)

it was a cute love story

I liked both main leads and the secondary characters were lovable too. the ML's family and the warriors.
The part that involved medicine was a bit disappointing though, the traditional medicine was interesting but that's all. I really think that the FL shouldn't have been a doctor, it would've been better if she was a student of medicine or maybe a dietitian but as a doctor she was pretty useless, there were maybe three times were she helped them with anything that entailed using her knowledge.
There were many parts in the story where there were contradictions and things that didn't make sense so I just decided to turn off my brain in those parts.
The romance development was so well done though that it kept me watching until the end.
I'm glad that there weren't any over the top villains only some antagonists that could change their minds and redeem themselves.
