I briefly scan through the synopsis of “Jai Rao” last night and from what I can gather it is going to be one heck of an emotional roller coaster. We got nang’ek who is dying from a heart aliment [refer back to the title "Jai Rao (Cracked Heart)"] and pra’ek who doesn’t know the truth, so there are a lot of misunderstandings.
Eight years ago, they knew each other, they were lovers. He loved her passionately and then all of sudden she disappears from his life without a word. He was devastated and deeply hurt.
When she comes back into his life again, he is a known Superstar across Asia and the world. They meet again at an award show, she bypassed his fanclub, the barricade of journalists to congratulate him on his success. As all eyes are on them, then she faints and he carried her to safety. The media took it the wrong way and it caused a major stir. “Who is the mystery girl,” they questioned.
In order to set things right with the media and pra’ek, she gives herself to him for 1 year. For 1 year, she will work as his personal assistant to redeem herself as a good person in his eyes and to set things right with the media.
Pra’ek, Koravic or Vic ( Ken Theeradeth) torments nang’ek Chorlada or Aoey(Aff Taksaorn) because he is still angry that she left him all those years ago. He loves her still but doesn’t know how to show it. His heart is filled with rage.
I’ll translate the synopsis in full some time tomorrow. Tina will be translating the full- detailed synopsis at her blog.
“Jai Rao” is scheduled to air after “Sapai Look Tung” late October or maybe early November. There has been no confirmation. At the earliest, it will air on Oct 30.
Noteworthy co-stars include Vicky Sunisa Jett, “Nott” Vorarit FuengArom and Maurice Kay (black gay dude).
Nott plays Dr.Luk, Chorlada’s doctor and fiancee.
Maurice plays Vic’s manager, Pat.
Vicky plays Melanee, an actress who falls deeply for Vic (Ken), but will end up with Dr.Luk.
Dr.Luk and Melanee are side characters that will provide comic relief for the tragic love story of Chorlada and Vic.
The villains of the series:
May FuengArom as Saengchay
Supoj Janjaroen (Lift) as Ton
