If you only had one lakorn to watch this year, I would highly recommend the first installment of the ‘UGLY duckling’ series from the Bang channel, ‘PERFECT MATCH’ starring DJ Push Puttichai Kasetsin (29) and Mook Worranit (19). Luckily for you, it is completely subbed at GMM TV youtube channel. It is NOT one of those kill joy, overly dramatic, sad type of series where someone dies of cancer–no, it’s pure FUN. There is no villain, the real enemy is lack of self esteem, not believing that you are beautiful enough to be loved by a great guy. Every girl needs a flirty P’Seua to love them for who they really are inside and not what they look on the outside.
Junior played by Mook Worranit is a girl who has everything, she comes from a rich family, is popular, has a good looking boyfriend from a rich family, is beautiful but has self esteem issues. She goes to have thread lift procedure done when her friends teased her about having a chubby face and gets an allergic reaction that causes severe acne. With her ugly predicament, her friends and boyfriend abandoned her. She convinces her mother to send her to Pitsanulok for schooling and to be near a specialized dermatologist to treat her acne.
Junior befriends Ying Bee, a fun-loving gay guy from the north at Pitsanulok and P’Seua, an upperclassman who is there for her when she is in need. P’Seua is playful and flirty and through series of events develops feeling for Junior even with her severe acne. He sees her for who she is– a naive, compassionate young woman who will do anything for the people she loves.
Ugly Duckling is a 4 part series and I can’t say I can recommend all of them, maybe just only ‘Perfect Match’. I couldn’t get through ‘PITY GIRL’ and I couldn’t even tell you what the plot is. ‘Don’t’ got really corny near the end and I only got through episode one of ‘Boys’ Paradise’.
I will watch the the conclusion of the ‘UGLY DUCKLING’ series this coming SUNDAY Dec 20, 2015, just to see Junior and P’Seua again and to see how their relationship has progress.
