Sanaeha Sunya Kaen: Another slap kiss lakorn on my radar

I am hooked. Let’s start off by making it clear :-D.

Plot 

Kin marries his long time girlfriend Ganok, but on their wedding night she gets in an accident.

Ganok dies due to the accident and Kin vows to take revenge on the other person involved in the accident – Tawan. Three years later, Kin gets a chance to put in effect his revenge. Daeun, Tawan’s younger sister, applies for a position at Kin’s corporation and as the president he immediately hires her. Thanks to Daeun, Kin gets to meet Tawan and he immediately does his best to hire Tawan as a personal nurse for his younger sibling Nod. Nod is paralyzed and is going through physical therapy. Kin even makes sure to make Tawan sign a contract: If she resigns before Nod walks, or before a certain period of time (I am not exactly sure what are the clauses of the contract) she would have to pay.

Contract with the devil…

Tawan is happily welcomed in Kin’s family as everyone sees her as the person who could heal Kin’s heart and improve Nod’s condition. Kin’s two brothers – Nahk and Akk – are also attracted to Tawan. Nahk, the player of the family, is only physically attracted. Plus, he also has something going on with Tawan’s sister Daeun. Meanwhile Akk seems to be developing deeper feelings and interest in Tawan, especially when he suspects that Kin might be mistreating Tawan. Let’s also add that Tawan’s friend Pink is interested in Akk. This is not even a love triangle anymore :-D. It’s more confusing than that…

 Dome’s Acting

Dome’s acting is not amazing, but I think it improved from Tawan Tor Saeng. Back then, Dome’s acting was just passable. My only problem with his acting is the fact that some of his expressions look vampiresque. Sort of like in Ruk Mai Mee Wun Tay :-D.

Every time Kin looks at Tawan , I feel like he is going to suck her blood. Anyway, I have to admit that Dome’s handsome looks help forget about his acting. Plus we have Janie and no matter what role she plays she always does a great job.

Tawan’s Character

After reading comments online, I saw many viewers complain about Tawan’s weakness, which is almost doormat level.Well although it is annoying I think that’s the way the director of the drama wants it to be. Seeing where the drama is headed, it makes sense. Tawan is a nurse and that most likely indicates that she is a caring and loving person. As a nurse, she spends a lot of time taking care of people and that requires a lot of patience and understanding. Let’s add that Tawan’s parents passed away when she was really young. She only has her younger sister and a few friends. I hope that she has more than one friend but so far we’ve only met her adorable friend Pink! We can infer that the nang’ek is missing some love in her life. Plus her past relationship was a major failure since the man ended up cheating on her with a totally crazy woman to that. In summary let’s say that: Caring, loving, inexperienced, hurt, and trustworthy Tawan MEETS seductive, deceitful, wicked, and vengeful Kin. There is no match. Kin seems to be a pro at sending mixed signals to Tawan. The latter is confused but can’t resist Kin’s charm.

Sweet and confused Tawan VS Psycho Kin

I just finished watching episode 5 and Kin is already feeling guilty.

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 11.33.01 PM

Well, deep down he knows that he has no right to take revenge on Tawan. Kin is even already looking for excuses and reassurances. Let’s face it though, the logic of his revenge is ridiculous. Tawan was the pedestrian at the time of the accident and Ganok was the one driving. In my opinion and from what I have seen in the first episode, Ganok wasn’t the best driver… Who in their right mind drives fast while talking on the phone, or not paying attention to the road?! It seems like Ganok did -___-. One more thing: Is Ganok really dead?! I have watched many teasers and the MV of the drama and it seems like she might make a comeback. Or is it Ganok’s doppelganger?

Ganok?!

I want to add that there is so much skinship in this drama. Kind of surprised, but not unhappy!

Family Dynamic

I love Kin’s family, especially the mother. I love her bubbliness and her incessant worrying for her children. The mother is nosy, but not too much. Unlike all the other evil mothers in Dramaland, she is focused on her children’s happiness. Besides, having such a large family provides the director with a chance to give each family member their own love line. Nahk and Daeun? Akk and Pink? I would love to know which pair you guys prefer. So far, I can’t pick. Plus Nod also has a boyfriend or fiance that we haven’t seen yet :-D.

A Character That Needs To Go Away… 

I can’t stand Kin’secretary. She is acting like his wife. Can she get a life? Also why does she keep abusing Daeun?! I am scared that she is going to seriously hurt Daeun at some point. Plus what if she finds out about Kin and Tawan?! She will definitely go crazy… Not like Tawan needs to mistreated by someone else. The poor nang’ek has so many people going after her already – Kin, her ex-boyfriend’s girl, etc.

  1. I totally agree with you! I’m hooked too .. (guilty pleasure) 🙂 I love Janie’s lakorn, regarding this lakorn there are many who think her acting isn’t there.? But when you put yourself in Tawan’s shoes.. most of the time when Kin is all up on you like that, you will give a lot of “WTF” expression. Some say she should act shy or that she’s lacking in acting shy. Tawan is probably in her late 20′s .. she’s not going to act like a teen girl whom never been in a relationship (her ex-finance constantly showing up to remind us that!).
    Dome’s acting.. umm.. it’s Dome! this is only his third lakorns I’ve seen and to be honest.. his hotness and sex appeal really blind me from his “not so great” acting. And like you say, he is like “vampiresque..” which is why I love him in Ruk Mai Mee Wun Tay! And having Janie as the N’ek really make the lakorn passable. Cuz I couldn’t get myself to finish Tawan Tor Saeng (btw, I love the Pete and Kob version) Mai is super beautiful but with both leads acting is … I can’t no matter how good they look. Also Mai being too tall standing next to Dome wasn’t doing it for me. Which bring me back to why I’m hook on Sanaeha Sunya Kaen, Dome just tower over Janie, super HOTTTT!!
    Unlike most lakorns 90% of the side characters in here are lovable.
    I still do prefer our OTP over the other couples just because when it’s all over, their love will bring us to tears! (of joy!! lol)

      • It’s a lakorn. There’s always more tears of sadness than joy. In fact all Asian dramas are like that. Long unnecessary episodes full of pain with a reconciliation of the otp in the last five minutes. But still I come back for more

  2. I’ve been skipping parts of episodes just b/c I want to get to the point of the dramas since the eng sub is so slow. Thank god, it’s been picking up the last 2 episodes. Thanks to VIKI!!!!

    Anyhow, if Dome wasn’t that hot, I couldn’t get pass the 1st episode. But I knew going into this drama, Dome and Janie were going to be HOT together. I was right!!! People had said a few things about the way he act, but I think he’s doing a great job being a convinning and deceiving person. He’s freaking bipolar. I can stand his expression a lot better than Tik in YLC.. (hate reply ASAP 🙂 ) That’s my opinion.

    As for Janie, love her and still do. One thing why I love Janie and Ann is that they can play any role that are given and both of them will do a great job. It’s just that we are not use to it but hey, they play that weak character so well that has everyone talking sh!. how they hate weak na-ek. I love that they are weak but they still have that fiesty inside of them and it’s shown throughout the drama.

    • Me too!! I cannot finish YLC cuz I don’t think Tik suit that character! I use to like Tik and by gosh, he is a better actor than Dome but man, age got to him. I like Tik better playing prince charming role. Aum and Ken are my fav ch 3 actors that can pull off the revenge/slap/kiss kind of lakorns.
      Dome.. well, Kin is bipolar and when we find ourselves questioning his sanity, we can say that Dome is doing a good job playing Kin.

      • I love Tik but I do’nt know if it lost his touch on acting because I wasn’t into Wanida either. It was a good drama but it wasn’t one that I was “awwed” about it. It took me like 5 times to finally finish Wanida.

        Dome is a beginner and I give him prompt. I like Dome more than Bomb and a few newbies. Maybe afterall, it’s his sexiness.. So far this lakorn is good.

  3. I am new to Thai lakorns but have been watching several ones already and enjoy some of them. I think Dome has improved his acting in this movie. He has squeaky clean handsome image but his role is very hateful, psychotic. I dislike his character portraying sexual violence against women. I do not feel sympathetic for Tawan as she is too weak, naïve, dreamy bordering on delusional side. She has done nothing to protect herself from being attacked by him. He is now like a criminal for every time violently assaulting her. I disagree with some saying that he has fallen in love without knowing because of the revenge. But let’s see how this movie is going to play out at the end. Tawan needs justice done for her and P’Kin must be punished for his actions.

    • I totally understand where you are coming from. Dome is definitely psycho. He is controlling, abusive, and possessive. Love? I wish someone would show their love in another way. So far, I don’t think I can say that he loves her. Maybe later.

  4. Dome is a total nut case no sane person can possibly do the things he has done to
    Tawan. she must be vindicated and dome must be punished for his actions.Tawan shud go with the doctor who loves her hope to see the final episodes soon. Good jjob subbers. Aloha

    • I would love to see Tawan and Akk too. I feel like Akk wants to protect Tawan but at the same time he is slightly attracted. If there wasn’t Kin, Akk would probably go for Tawan.

      We all know how it’s gonna end tho -___-.
