It’s drama-filled. Three long time amigos and one girl, 3 for 1, it would be a good deal if it was like 3 bags of chips for $1, but we’re talking about relationship between people here. That is not a good ratio. In “Reuan Pae (The Houseboat)”, nang’ek “Ek” Butsakorn Tantiphana has to chose between 3 close friends who are renting her father’s houseboat. The guys are:
1. ‘Tono’ Pakin Kumvilaisak, as Kaew, the unruly boxer.
2. Son Songpaisan, as Chen, the honest police officer.
3. ‘Gun’ Napat Injaiuea, as Rin, the mellow aspiring singer.
She likes Kaew but Kaew is not up to her father’s standards, he’s an uneducated boxer with no future. Chen seems more promising than both Kaew and Rin, he’s educated and will be a police officer with a stable income. Her father would only allow Chen to pursue and date her. Because they love Chen, Kaew and Rin make way for him to pursue the woman they both love. No hard feelings. They can’t get the girl, they direct their efforts to other things such as pursuing their dreams. Kaew applies to enter a boxing camp, Rin finds a job at a radio station.
Just as things are going well, Chen has to leave for the police academy as part of his training to be a lieutenant . He tells Kaew to take good care of his girl Pen (Ek) when he is away. Kaew agrees but one stormy, thundering night, something happened between Kaew and Pen that will change the course of Kaew and Chen’s relationship and everyone around them. They had an affair. YAH, it sucks for Chen. He comes back from training and he finds his best friend with his girlfriend–worst friend betrayal ever.
