My new obsession, forget ‘Namtan Mai (Burnt Sugar)’ and ‘Dok Bua Kao (White lotus)’, Ching Chang rocks! To honest with everyone, I haven’t been keeping up with this lakorn, so I don’t know what the hey-lo is up. From episode 1-32, it was a whole lot crazy and I was not watching that–sibling rivalry, betrayal, prostitutes, murder, attempted murder, loads of sex (nothing wrong with that), sisters trying to steal each others’ husbands, using black magic to seduce the woman you love, what the fudge? Lets just say the first half of ‘Ching Chang’ was all sorts of loony. I couldn’t keep up.
Then the second half came along, oh, so refreshing! Loving those young actors, I’m just smitten with the second generation!
The second generation, all roughly 18 years old:
Yongchai—’Ball’ Vittawats Sigklumpong
Atit—’Pookhai’ Phongsiree Banluewong
Ging Gaanda—Aerin Siripon
Koi Kalaya— ‘Toey’ Jarinporn Junkiat
Arisa—’Mae’ Paweesuda Janket (Mae the Star 4)
Atit is Aree (Pang Ornjira) and Ping (‘Num’Uttaporn Teemakorn)’s son. Aree abandoned Atit when he was a baby to marry a wealthy man. She has a daughter name Arisa with her new husband. Atit is raised by his aunt Im (Jieb Sopitnapa) and he does know the identity of his biological mother via pictures. He believes his father Ping is dead, dude is still alive.
Yongchai is Yod (Captain Puthanate) and Oon (‘Pim’ Pimmada Borriruksooppakorn)’s son, I’m not too sure though. You can tell by his personality is very much like his parents, bold and mischievous. Like Atit, he is raised by his aunt Im. Yongchai does not know the identity of his biological father, but he does have contact with his mother to whom he resents because she is a prostitute. Oon adores her son and visits him often bearing gifts. He would usually throw all her gifts away.
Ging Gaanda and Koi Kalaya are Yod’s daughters. From episode 35, we learn that Ging is not biologically related to Yod but he loves her like his own. Koi, she is his daughter. Also, in the second half of “Ching Chang”, Yod has amnesia.
Sanchai is some hoodlum, not related to this crazy family.
So Arisa, Atit, Yongchai, Koi are maternally related, they are all cousins. And, attending the same university.
The 4 sisters: 3rd eldest Bang-On (Ann), 2nd eldest Oon (Pim), eldest Im (Jieb), youngest Aree (Pang). The mothers of the second generation.
The second generation appeared on episode 33 with the introduction of Yongchai (Ball) and Atit (Pookhai), paddling a boat ashore as their aunt Im calls out for them.
My dear friend, you must watch episode 33, it was good, love Ball,great young actor with major mega-star potential. This uni-brow actor will blow you away. Trust me.
