Well, isn’t this complicated. As I read the synopsis of “Aom” Piyada Akarasene’s latest lakorn with Pong Nawat, “Proong Nee Gor Ruk Ter (Tomorrow, I’ll still love you)”, I begin to wonder how are they gonna get back together. This definitely won’t be a ‘happily ever after’ type of lakorn.
At the beginning, Pong and Aom are lovers, they are about to get marry. Then tragedy strikes. Pong’s older sister played by Pin Kejmanee murders Aom’s older sister because she believes Aom’s sister and her husband played by James Ruengsak are having an affair. Complicated stuff. Naturally, after the killing, Pong and Aom break up.
Being me and having a strong relationship with my older brother, I don’t think I can handle associating myself with family members of the person who murdered my brother, no matter how ‘nice’ they are. It would be too emotionally draining. There is an intense/immense loyalty between two people who have grown up together, who have molded each other, who have fought and defended each other, and who are genetically linked. The sibling bond between my brother and I is very strong, his murder would be unforgivable. With that said, how will Aom and Pong’s relationship ever work out? If I was Aom’s character, I don’t think I can do it.
This lakorn will also have a gay love story between Oh Anuchit and “Fluke” Pachara Thammon aka Fluke: the Star 5. Interesting. Though both claim to be heterosexuals, both are believed to be gay by the Thai media. Oh Anuchit has admitted to having a girlfriend but still he can’t shake off the gay rumors. As for Fluke, he just looks like a girl and was raised by a man who looks like a woman. Bkkdreamer has more on that here. Because some people can’t separate lakorn from reality, Oh and Fluke will definitely be swarmed with ‘are you gay’ questions when this lakorn airs.
