When I think about the potential of this show and what it ended up being, my eyes get sore and I get a headache. The story started out great: angsty, great character development and a significant amount of scenes between our main leads. But then the director decided to give too much screen time to supporting characters and side drama. That’s when the show started hitting the fan. I didn’t quite understand when the male lead fell in love with the female lead with so little scenes between them [and so much hate between them] and how they MIRACULOUSLY ended up being together at the end. I am even more disappointed because I know both main actors are super talented. I hope next time they reunite for a drama they’ll give a good talk to the director and tell him not to ruin it… Please.

High Society

A drama with good visuals, including great outfits but seriously nothing more. I feel like once in a while DramaLand puts on a pretty drama with gorgeous actors, but little substance. This is one of the best exampleS in my opinion. I could never get into this show no matter how many times I tried. My brain and my heart just wouldn’t cooperate.

Hyde, Jekyll, and Me

HJM

Even a drama with star power Hyun Bin, does not make an interesting story. Compared with Kill Me Heal Me which ran at the same time, HJM became a parody. It bounces out three personalities, none of which captures our attention, except to the Candy in the drama. Literally, bubbles and candy lights. It floundered and flopped, and just couldn’t gather into one cohesive plot. Continue reading

Mai Sin Rai Fai Sawaat: Such a Waste!

I am so disappointed by this drama. It went down the drain so fast and nothing can save it at this point. I have too many grievances. Please allow me to quickly rant!

  • Why is Somsupang still in this show? She is manipulated from left to right – by the man she loves, her mother and her own stupidity. She is now in a wheelchair because her own mother inadvertently pushed her down a flight of stairs. Instead of admitting that her mother is at fault, Som lets the world, and most importantly Wee, point fingers at Chit. I guess it’s a convenient way to make Wee hate Chit.
  • Som’s mother is up to no good. Well, if you have been following this roller coaster this is old news. She is embroiled in a steamy romance with the old gangster who is after Chit/Wee’s house if I am not mistaken. I guess the gangster wants the land the house is on. Interesting detail: Som’s mother and the gangster are apparently a real life married couple! I still don’t like their characters… They need to redeem themselves in future lakorns.

  • I have to say that I love how Chit ruined Wee and Som’s wedding. It was epic. She rolled in drunk, wearing a black dress and carrying a funeral wreath. Do you think Chit would stop there?! She gave a loud speech about her being the mistress of Wee and sharing the same man with the new bride. Som had it coming. Why would you insist on marrying a man with a mistress?! He didn’t respect you while you were dating!!! Did Som think a piece of paper would make a difference?! She is about to hold this piece of paper and cry for several nights.

Plot

Wee and Chitchaba meet for the first time in Paris and let’s be honest: She totally stalks him. They accidentally bump into each other in the street, and she keeps apologizing and wanting to repair Wee’s phone.

Chitchaba finally gets it her way and is able to invite Wee for dinner. It doesn’t stop there as both also embark for a tour of the romantic city. Chitchaba serves as a tour guide for several days. Wee often ignores Chitchaba during the tour, which entices her even more. Although Wee is being snobby, he slightly smiles listening to her. I guess someone is not as indifferent. Chitchaba is even able to make him dance. That scene was quite cute!

Their last night together in Paris, Wee thanks Chitchaba for such a romantic night. He also becomes curious about her. What is she studying? She answers sculpture; she wants to make the world a beautiful place at the image of her loving relationship with her father. 

Little does Chitchaba know that those are her last moments of happiness, innocence and freedom.
