September 18, 2009 for the weekend time slot after Vicky Sunisa and Boy Pakorn’s lakorn “Fai Rak Arsoon (Love Fire of the Beast)”.
“Prasart Mued (Mystery Castle or Dark Castle)’” stars Nattarat Maurice and Sirita Jensen and is a remake of Mew Lalita and Willy McIntosh’s lakorn from the early 90s. It’s a romance slash mystery lakorn about a young Duchess (Rita Jensen) who runs away from home to become a caretaker for a wheelchair bound girl at a mysterious castle. She encounters many odd occurrences while there and falls in love with the master of the estate, Dr. Pharot Panarak (Nat Maurice), a reserve man with a dark past. His wife went missing 7 years ago and people believe he murdered her.
I’m going to be frank with everyone, I am a little worried about this series. One, we have Nat Nattarat Maurice as the male lead. Lets be honest, he’s stiff and too young for a role of a doctor. Two, the fake mustache doesn’t help out his cause either. Instead of making him look older and more respectable, they turned him into a laughable Thai version of Zorro. Every time I look at him, I start cracking up.
Boy Pisanu plays a prince in this lakorn, he falls in love with Rita Jensen’s character and pursues her heavily. “Maprang” Wirakarn Seneetantikul plays a character who secretly loves him.
