Mai Sin Rai Fai Sawaat: Thoughts (Up until episodes 5-6)

I am done with the show, but this will just cover the show up until episodes 5-6. I will post later concerning the ending. If you want to know more about the show itself, check my first post on it!

Chit quickly moves into the house and her nightmare begins. Abuse on top of abuse. She gets all the material possession she could want, but who cares when Wee mistreats her so much?

Chit only cares about the house and tries to bottle up her feelings as much as she can. Alcohol seems to be a great way to cope…

Wee having a fiancee and a mistress is the talk of town. Everyone wonders what kind of freak show this is. So is probably the most affected by the rumors since she is so worried about appearances and reputation. Yet, she could walk away… Don’t we all know that’s not going to happen though?

The director of the drama skips the r-scenes, meaning we don’t see the full act. Viewers are free to use their imagination.  To be honest, I am perfectly happy with that. Lakorns tend to glamorize r-scenes, which can be pretty unhealthy.

Honestly, I have been bothered by the way the topic of rape has been addressed in the drama. In episode 4, Wee’s secretary tells Yuwadee and  that’s because women behave badly and dress provocatively that rapes happen. I feel like that the secretary’s words reflect a common opinion, which saddens me. A woman, no matter what she is wearing or saying, shouldn’t be blamed for her own rape. It’s just too ridiculous.

Lakorns, especially slap-kiss ones, display several scenes. It’s generally accepted, but I wish that it wasn’t justified.

Basically, Wee has a condo and the house. The condo is to spend time with So, or stay by himself. The house is reserved for his matters with Chit.
