Bor (Pong Nawat) and Kaew (Aom Piyada) are lovers who are about to get marry. Then, tragedy strikes. Bor’s older sister, Putt (Pin Kejmanee), murders Kaew’s older sister, King, because she believes her sister and her husband (James Ruengsak) are having an affair. Naturally, after the killing, Kaew forces herself to break up with Por.
There is a time jump of six years. During those six years, Kaew stayed in Rayong with her mother and brother, Kong (“Fluke” Thammon aka Fluke: the Star 5), in their father's beach house. Bor has become a successful businessman and moves to Hong Kong to manage a company branch there. However, they both are reunited again after Kaew moves her family back to the city (to treat her mother's medical condition) and Bor returns back to the company in Thailand to be with his beloved niece, nu Nim. Under various events, Kaew ends up working as Bor's personal assistant and encounters Bor's girlfriend, Awn (Mod Jirachaisakdecha). Pueng (Peemai Wattanaselarat) is Kaew's best friend and also works in Bor's company. She likes a co-worker named Nuthi (Premanat Suwannannon), but Nuthi is instantly interested in Kaew upon seeing her for the first time. Bor is enraged with his past girlfriend/fiancee's relationship with a younger man, but at the same time, he cannot endure the hurt and pain that Awn, Putt and Pipat put Kaew through and vows to protect her, the only woman he's ever loved.
Cast & Credits
Instead, I really felt the leads had more attraction to each other than in the remake. Be warned, it is a culturally-older-styled lakorn - lots of shooting and screaching second lead females along with a less than believable child actor - but the show worked. I guess I would split the appeal of the show between the cast and the writing.
Yea for Shirtless Pong - he was underdressed quite a lot! - and yea for the writers. The writers couldn’t maintain a totally believable storyline all the way through but there were some great scenes that were written as though real human beings were speaking, not actors. That, for me, is the mark of a good script.
The character or second lead actors really shone as well. While Por (Pong)’s sister Putt was crazy from the get-go, her motivations weren’t so complicated that you couldn’t understand her. Also, The ups and down of Kaew’s and Por’s love story ran the gamut from lovely romance to harsh realities. Even the second couple (I’d say this was Kong and Pe) and the third couple (Kaew’s friend and her co-worker/boss) had some very realistic moments.
The music really fit the show and I thought the whole series was re-watchable to boot.
