Minus the overacting, the cinematography, the wardrobe, I do like the story of Sao Noi starring Son Songpaisan and ‘Vill’ Wannaros Sonthichai on Ch9. It’s mystical–like the little mermaid without the fish tail, he is drawn by her voice, her humming. They are predestined to be together, he first meets her in his dream. She gets a premonition when he gets knocked out by carjackers with a stick and loses his memory. Even before they met, they are drawn together by some divine force telling them they will meet soon.
San (Son) is our main character, he is from a wealthy family with a rich background, he is old money, he is a painter, and has studied aboard in the Philippines. San is looking for a muse to inspire him to paint better. He finds his muse in his dream of a young woman dressed like an angel floating on water, humming a beautiful melody, and he is drawn to her. The girl exists and she will become his real life nangfa (angel) and wife when he meets her in See Chang island, her name is Nit (Vill).
He looks out the windows wanders outside to the beach, he doesn’t live near the ocean.
He looks around in bewilderment and ran towards the sound of the humming. He sees a young woman and proclaims, ‘the song is very melodic.’
San: ‘Who are you? And angel?’
The girl: ‘If I am an angel, I would be up in heaven.’
San:’Then you are a ghost?’
The girl:’A ghost would be beautifully enticing and uses trickery.’
San: ‘Then who are you?’
She turns around and smiles at him. He takes a step back and is stunned by her beauty.
The girl:’Then who are you looking for?’
San:’I know now, you are my muse. Are you here to give me blessings?’
The girl:’That blessings is already within you.’
She glides through water towards him. ‘Today I came and found you, the next time, you should look for me also.’
She turns around to leave and he grabs her hand. ‘Wait, where are you going?’ And she evaporates into thin air and he wakes from his dream.
San:’Strange, what did I dream of?’
