There are two things you need to understand when you watch this lakorn.
One, you need to separate reality from fiction. Lakorns don’t completely represent Thai culture or law.
Two, lakorns is a soap opera and an exaggeration of the truth. Things that happen in lakorns do not necessarily happen in ‘real’ ife.
If a man kidnaps a woman in Thailand, he will be arrested. It has nothing to do with culture. Thot’s behavior is not accepted in the real world Thailand.
Take this lakorn for what it is, it’s pure entertainment. Nothing more.
Our homeboy Thot was eager to get marry, immediately the next day, he rushed over to his friend’s Chai’s house.
“I need to borrow your dad to ask for a woman’s hand in marriage.” He told his friend.
Chai is a little surprise. One, when did this all happen? Why the rush?T hot actually explained that he ‘rawr’ a girl and needs to take responsibility for it. Chai is hilarious, he replied, “oy, if that was me, I would have been married 10 or more times by now. “ Wow, you can tell they are friends, they are both pervs.
Chai has to help because he is the source of this problem because Chai gave him the wrong direction to the pub. Chai suggest paying the girl off. “Kids nowadays, they don’t want to get marry and have kids, just give her a stack of money and the whole issue will be resolve.”
Thot wasn’t having it and shouted, “No way, I have to marry THIS girl.”
Man, since Thot is determined to marry ‘this girl’, Chai’s mind begins to wonder. She must be hot, he thought. HAHAHAHAH.
Finally Chai’s father comes into the room, he wants to know about this girl too. What’s her background? Thot said he does know and everyone looked off into space in bewilderment. Next scene!
Bow is called over to the house by her sister. Her mother is ill. Before entering her parent’s house, her father intercepts her and starts interrogating her about Thot.
“The night you were gone, who did you sleep with?” Her father angrily asked her. WOW. Uncomfortable much. I don’t wish that conversation on any father and daughter pair ever. It’s very uncomfortable even when you’re not the party involve.
First, Bow lies. “I don’t know what you are talking about, Dad.”
Then her father tells her a guy name Thot came over yesterday and said he slept with her. Instantly, Bow looks nervously to the floor. She doesn’t answer him.
Not getting an answer, her father grabs her hand and starts shaking her. He yells out. “Is it true or not, ANSWER ME!”
She admits to it. Yes, she slept with Thot but he drugged her. He is a bastard. Her father can beat or say whatever he wants, she doesn’t even want to live. Poor thing.
Just at this time, Thot, Chai, and Chai’s father arrives at Bow’s house. Chai’s father knows these people and Chai asked how. Chai’s father tells him to recall a time when he was little and he used to pay with a little girl name Bow from this house. Chai remembers her. She was the buck-tooth girl with an ugly face from his childhood. Hilariously, he urged Thot to go back into the car. Homegirl is UGLY.
He laughs first and said, “Come on Thot, can’t you find anyone better, lets go back home. I don’t want to waste a good looking friend to someone like that.”
Thot refuses and pushed his friend back.
Thot and his entourage walks into the house. Bow’s father sees Thot and jumps forward to choke him. Chai’s father had to block him.
Chai sees Bow for the first time and he is smitten. He tugs at Thot shirt and whispered, “hey Thot, what bar did you get drunk at to find someone like that, tell me so that I can get drunk there too.” O-M-G. Love Chai, he just fill with jokes.
At the sight of Thot, Bow huffs and made an angry face. She walks away without saying ‘hi’.
The men talk. We learn that Thot is from a very prominent family and his parents were school buddies with Chai and Bow’s parents. His parents have been dead for 18 years now and Thot is the main male heir. He runs the family corporate farm. Basically, Thot is a rich guy from a very good family.
Thot kneels down and gives Bow’s father a proper ‘wai’. He promises to love and cherish Bow to the best of his abilities if her father would let him. The dad is kinda interested and said he will have to ask Bow first. WOW. If I was her dad, I wouldn’t. A second punch to the face is what I would do. But that is just me.
This scene really pissed me off. The dad is angry that Thot ‘rawr’ his daughter but since he can’t return what Bow has lost, he willing to give up his daughter to the man who ‘rawr’ her. That makes no sense. Whatever, it’s a lakorn. Just roll with it.
Everyone in Bow’s family approves of the marriage. Thot is from a good family and her parents grew up with his parents. It’s like they know each other already.
Her sister even said this, “because you are a woman Bow, you will only lose face and he is willing to take responsibility for his actions according to our culture. I think you should think about it.” No words to describe how I feel insulted by her comment.
But Bow refuses. “I will only marry the person I love.” She said.
The word ‘love’ triggers rage in her father’s mind. He yells at her: ‘how long will you let him fool you. How long will you make my dignity to be the gossip of others until you are satisfied?”
Meanwhile outside of Bow’s apartment, Pom is there with flowers. He knocks on the door and gets no answer. He decides to call her.
Back at the house, Bow is still arguing with her family. She can’t believe her family is willing to give her up to a man who ‘rawr’ her because of pride and prestige.
Bow’s father explains that it is hard to be a father and Bow will never understand how painful it is for a father to see his child in pain. But honor is more important.
“I want to kill him, I want to put him in jail. And those things I can do. But I can’t return what you have lost.”
Bow argues that even if she marries Thot it will never repay what he did to her.
Wrong timing, the phone call from Pom arrives. Bow’s father picks up the call. He is not please and starts cursing at Pom.
“You bastard, you have a wife and a child and you are still pursuing my daughter. Remember this, if I’m still alive, you will never have a chance with my daughter. My daughter is about to get marry and start a new life. As for you, you can do die where ever you want to. GO!”
After hanging up the phone, Bow’s father accused her of still seeing Pom and asked what kind spell she is under to not be able to decide what is right and wrong.
More yelling and Bow accuses her father of being blind too.
“Dad, you are blind too, you can’t even see the color of my heart. Even if I tell you the truth, you will never believe me. Because you have already judged that I’m despicable.” Bow cries and walks out.
Her father calls out to her. “You will marry him like I have ordered you to.”
Bow turns back to him. “I will not marry a person I hate.”
Bow makes her exit and the family sighs in despair.
Bow’s mother wonders if her husband is being too cruel, he tells her he is not and said he wanted to show her something. They take a drive together and follow Bow back to her apartment.
The sight of Bow and Pom in front of the apartment building really disturbed Bow’s parents. Bow’s father said he had paid an investigator to find where Bow was living. According to the investigator Bow had been living with Pom at the apartment. Bow’s mom is heart-broken. She can’t believe her own daughter has lied to her.
The decision is this, they need to separate Bow and Pom. The marriage of Bow and Thot must happen in order to save their dignity and their daughter’s dignity.
You know what, things can be deceiving. Bow is not seeing Pom, everyone is just misunderstanding her. I feel bad for her. She is trying to distance herself from Pom, but he is making it hard for her. I no longer feel bad for Pom, he doesn’t understand that he is making things worst. Leave her be, man!
Oh good gosh, that crazy lying heffer is crying again. She wants Pom and she wants him NOW. Hey lady, give him some space. Though I hate him now, I do pity him, Nee is suffocating. Heck, just watching her makes me ill.
That night, Bow is out on the balcony pondering about her life and the things her father had said. She contemplates suicide. If I jump off, it would all end, she says. Don’t do it BOW, life is precious. Well, good thing crazy Thot decides to drop by her apartment. She is about to jump off ,then she sees Thot. Out of fear, she quickly moves back. She was fast like a leopard when she saw Thot.
I thought it was pretty funny how the music switch from the romantic theme song to a lion roaring when Thot looked up to see Bow. Out of fear, Bow runs back into her apartment. She checks the door to make sure it was locked and ran to her room and hid under the covers. The phone starts ringing. Guess who it is? If you guess Thot, DING, you get an A for awesome.
What a stalker. Thot needs to calm down. He comes to the apartment lobby and starts bombarding Bow with phone calls. She doesn’t pick up.
After a few seconds, a security guard confronts him and said he had to leave. “I think you need to leave or else I’ll call the police. You are scaring a female resident here.”
Not wanting the police involve, Thot leaves peacefully.
Bow checks to make sure he left from her balcony. She looks down, he tauntingly waves to her.
Like I have been repeating for the last few minutes, home boy is CRAZY with a a capital C. Before he officially leaves, he vows to never let her go. Cough, cough, STALKER.
Where to next, Bow’s parent’s house. Thot urged her parents to let them marry. Since Bow has refuse, her family can’t do anything about it. To seal the deal, Thot suggest it is too late.
Both Bow’s mother and sister gasp in shock, too late for what, they wonder. Yep people, Thot actually suggested he got Bow pregnant. He is one crazy, desperate man.
Last stop in Thot’s crazy ride of fun, back to his sister’s house, he goes. I realized every time he sees Pom, Thot always wants to start something. Yep, another crazy fight between those two.
Guess who won, guys? Of course, it’s THOT. Crazy people always win in a fight. Remember that, it can save your life.
Thot pins Pom to a wall and grabs Pom’s neck and gives him another warning. “I know what you are doing and I won’t let it happen.”
How many threats and warning has it been? Every scene between Pom and Thot is a beat-down and a warning scene. Not that I’m complaining, it’s fun too watch.
Aww Poor Bow, the next day, her sister and her parents orchestrate a plan to take her to Thot’s farm. Her sister is doing the driving. Her parents watch in agony but they believe they have made the right decision. Yea, I know, they are retarded. I would have done things differently.
Poor, Poor Bow, she believes she is going to the country to look at a property her mother wants to buy. Sorry Bow, your parents and your sister too have sold you out. Sucks to be you. Isn’t cute how oblivious she is?
Her sister goes to ‘look’ for the owner while Bow waits for her at a nearby ‘sala’. There, she is greeted by a mentally retarded man. A drink for you my lady, he says. Stupid Bow, actually drank the drink. I wouldn’t have. I mean no offense to the ‘slow’ community, but if someone looking weird and acting weird hands me a drink, I wouldn’t drink it. Hell na.
Yep, the drink was spiked with sleeping pills. Off to “la la” sleeping land, she goes.
She wakes up to find herself in a luxurious bed and well decorated room. Not so bad. She checks out the view from the balcony. Looking good, she smiles. This might be a dream, but it is a darn good one.
She checks the place out. The door is lock. Strange. She calls out for her sister.
“Pee Ben, are you in the bathroom?” She goes in. HOLY Oh bananas, who is in the bathtub filled with bubbles. It’s T-H-O-T.
He greets her, she screams. HAHAHAHAH. Ew, she says,
She runs out and calls for help. “Whoever, just come and help me. Help me, help me”.
Thot outs in a pale blue bath robe. She tries to pass him, he stops her by putting out his hand to the side.
“Where are you going, my love?” He asked her in a taunting way.
Frantically she calls for her sister. He tauntingly smile and said her sister has returned to Bangkok. She doesn’t believe him.
He slowly approaches her. “Since I have not finish taking my bath, do you want to scrub my back for me?”—ew, haha.
Fight, she pushed him and they tussled together. To get away, she back kicked him and bit him. Hearing the ruckus, servant lady Thel comes in. Seeing the door open, Bow runs for it.
Bow runs outside and sees a band of country folk. She rushes to them and begs them for help. “I have been kidnapped, please let me use your phone.”
As she is dialing, Thot arrives. Bow points at Thot as her capturer. No one reacted. They just smiled. HAHA. Poor Bow.
Thot introduced Bow has his wife and sent the people there off to work. Yep, those were his employees.
Back to the house they go. More fighting in the room, Bow whacks Thot with the pillow several times.
To restrain her, he gets on top of her. “My love, I didn’t know you like it rough, but I can arrange that for you.” Ummm..ew!!! OH my god. Ew.
He moves in for the kiss and she tells him to get off or else she will call the cops. He smiles his goofy smile and said, “What will that do, we are husband and wife.”
Bow doesn’t believe him and warns that if he doesn’t let her go, her high ranking military father will put him in jail. Thot smirks and said her father has given her to him already.
Bow still doesn’t believe him. “If I believe you, I would be mentally retarded.”
Back in Bangkok, at Bow’s house, her mother is having second thoughts. She wants to bring Bow back but her father refuses. Bow can learn to love Thot, he argued. He forbids his wife and eldest daughter to interfere with Bow and Thot’s marriage.
Part 2 coming soon.
