Last week, we saw Ch3′s golden couple from the 4 Khao Yai series, Boy Pakorn and Margie Rasee reunite in the classic remake of “Roy Marn”, a slap and kiss lakorn involving a force marriage that wasn’t meant to be. It was her cousin who should have married pra’ek, but the day before the wedding, her cousin was kidnapped by a guy who had loved her for years. He kidnapped her, assaulted her, got her pregnant, and thus everything changed. The young and bratty nang’ek had to take the place of her cousin because it was a marriage to erase a debt. Nang’ek’s uncle owed money to pra’ek (Boy) and his father. Since he can’t use his daughter, you’ll use his niece instead. There have been several versions of “Roy Marn”, I think everyone prefers the older version with Pen Pisut and Saranyu Wongkrajarng, more chemistry I guess–the Pok Piyatida with Bee Bandit version not so much apparently. I have never said it, Boy Pakorn and Margie Rasee have never said it either. According to them, the production company prefers it this way because the remake will be different from the original. Hopefully it will be good, I do like this couple.
This week we have another Ch3 golden couple (perfect pairing couple) from the 4 Khao Yai series reuniting — Nadech Kugimiya and ‘Yaya’ Urassaya Sperbund for ‘Game Rai, Game Ruk (Evil game, Love game)’. By the title, you can automatically assume it’s a revenge, slap and kiss lakorn. The series is produced by Lakorn Thai and written by Thai romance novelist Baphafan.
In the lakorn, nang’ek played by Yaya is tossed by the maddening tidal waves of the Andaman Sea to an island where she meets Saichon (played by Nadech), a young islander who does not dare to even tell her he loves her though they live in the same house. Nang’ek does not know who she is, she is suffering from amnesia. She probably fell off her wealthy family’s yacht or something–it’s a lakorn, someone has to be rich. We know it ain’t poor islander pra’ek. What does he have–some coconuts and a seashell necklace, he has nada, but he loves her. A year passes and our nang’ek discovers love, true love from Saichon who has guarded her and loved her patiently. Eventually they have a child together but their love story doesn’t end happily ever after, they are torn apart by her family and she suffers from partial memory loss of him and their child. How does that work from full memory loss to a partial one–only in lakorns and Kdrama. Saichon is rather upset that his beloved doesn’t remember him, thus their love story transform from a game of love to an evil game.
This is so funny, during their press interview, reporters asked Nadech and Yaya if they felt bored with seeing each other constantly. Nadech looked over at Yaya and asked, ‘are you bored?’
“I’m not bored, not bored ka,” Yaya repeated twice.
Compared to his muscleman, hot-tempered character “Fai” in “Duang Jai Akkanee (Akkanee’s Heart)”, Nadech said he is changing from fire to water. In Thai, Fai means ‘fire’ and Saichon means ‘stream’. Saichon’s personality is calm like a stream with a better temperament than Fai. The romantic scenes in ‘Game Rai, Game Ruk” will be sweet and innocent because nang’ek is suffering from amnesia thus pra’ek has to be more attentive towards her.
