Plerng Boon

This drama is angsty from beginning to end, which is totally the type of lakorn that I like. Before I go into more details about this show, I need to declare loud and clear that I love Janie as a nang’rai. Her acting in this lakorn was absolutely flawless and I am not sure that I want to see her play a nang’ek anymore  .

The storyline is fairly simple: Two friends and one man. Pim and Jai Rerng are childhood friends who’ve shared laughs and tears throughout the years. Pim is the kind hearted, pious and sweet one while Jai Rerng is strong willed and a go-getter. Nothing wrong with Jai Rerng’s character until you start looking at some of her flaws… Jealousy and greed. From secretly breaking a trophy won by Pim and stealing the limelight from her friend, it’s clear since the first episode that Jai Rerng is trouble. All this unbeknown to Pim (Yes, she’s that kind of naive female lead).

Jai Rerng’s jealousy might seem trivial at first but that’s until Rerk enters the picture. Rerk moves next to Pim and the two quickly become friends.  Pim quickly falls for him, but our girl Jai Rerng is faster and bewitches him. I am not lightly using the term “bewitch” but Rerk seemed almost obsessed with Jai Rerng. Rerk one-sidedly always put her first. Unsurprisingly their relationship doesn’t last long. Jai Rerng quickly dumps Rerk to get married with someone else – Terd, a successful businessman.

Rerk when he discovers that Pim and Terd are getting married.

Rerk who is heartbroken gets comforted by the only person who has always been there for him. Pim of course. The friendship grows and evolves into a romantic relationship at which point Rerk proposes to Pim. The lakorn could end here but no. That wouldn’t be fun.

When Jai Rerng’s marriage hits rock bottom, she turns to Pim for comfort and sets to wreak havoc in her friend’s marriage. Rerng moves in with the married couple supposedly because she has no where else to go. Let me pause here. This is just wild. Why would anyone let someone like Jai Rerng move into his or her house?! Despite several warnings from her family and her own husband, Pim goes ahead and take Jai Rerng in. What a dummy Pim is…

Sanaeha Sunya Kaen: When is it too much?

Episodes 6 and 7 were so interesting and intense! 

Kin is totally and completely crazy. His behavior doesn’t even make sense at ALL. He is being possessive, abusive, and completely irrational. The worst: Tawan doesn’t even understand Kin’s anger. I wish he would explain to her what’s going on. Compared to Sawan Biang, Kawee’s character made a lot more sense because there was sort of a “logical” reasoning behind his desire for revenge. Not that it made it right.

Kin’s desire for revenge is totally irrational. Ganok didn’t know how to drive period. She was the one being reckless in my opinion and putting other people’s life in danger. My theory: Ganok and Tawan might have been involved in two different accidents. I hope that my theory will become true, which will make Kin realize how stupid and cruel he was.

Kin-Tawan? No, Thank You!

This is the first lakorn that makes me truly wish that the main leads will not end up together. Kin might grovel later, but that will still not be enough. I don’t even see him falling in love with Tawan. So far, he hasn’t given Tawan the chance to show who she truly is since he is too busy abusing her. Plus Kin is so undeserving of Tawan’s love. I don’t know what he can do to deserve her forgiveness. I can’t stand when Kin abuses Tawan when she is sick – to the point that she faints. I can’t stand how he manipulates people around him to make them believe that he is nice.

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.
