The character Tian (played by Om Akapan) in “Bandai Dok Ruk (Stairs to love)” is an immature playboy, honestly I do not like this character– he has a posse of women, he drunk drove into a ditch, and he accidentally disrobed a piece of Kachao (Min Pechaya)’s traditional Thai dress, partially exposing her bosom at the festival beauty pageant because he wanted to borrow her cellphone. He was a little drunk (majorly drunk) at the time, but still, dude, I do not like you. Today was Tian’s day, he took up nearly 80% of the first episode until his twin brother Thup (always played by Om Akapan) made his appearance near the end. What a relief. This brother is much better, I just have a low tolerance for immature men.
The first time Kachao (Min) met Tian, he was drunk and muddy because he just drove his car into a ditch. They were at a local festival (carnival) where she was competing in a beauty pageant, the title of Miss Somo (Miss Pomelo). She won and he was wandering around asking people to use their cellphone to call home. Because of his muddy, dirty appearance, no one would lend him their cellphone to use.
When he saw Kachao from a distance picking up a call, he walked towards her and pointed drunkenly: “Pretty lady, can I use your phone?” Just as he is about to reach her, he trips and lands on top of her. She was not happy about that and accused him of attacking her. Time to hit this guy with her beauty pageant trophy, to which she did. It was a mess–he got smack and hit big time. When she was walking away, he had to hold on to the scarf part of her dress and spun her around, disrobing her outfit. Nice move guy.
Their first meeting was not great, there second meeting wasn’t great either. She smacked him with a broom and accused him of stalking her. After that, he was just smitten with her feistiness. This guy ain’t right.
When he wanted to introduce himself, she told him she didn’t care. “I don’t want to know who you are, what kind of work you do, what position you in,” she shouted at him.
When he tried to introduced himself again, she told him to just stop. “You can’t talk, you can only listen!! I know I’m pretty and you probably want to flirt with me. But I don’t care about you one bit, for that reason, stay far away from me.”—it’s funny how her arrogance is the thing that attracts him.
She throws the broom at him and left.
When she learned who he was and that he was her boss and that he is rich, she was embarassed. I guess he is not so dirty after all.
Fast-forward to the end, Tian is hardcore smitten with Kachao, he told his parents that he has found a girl who didn’t care about his money (he doesn’t even know her yet), he is sincere about her, and he even threw out the word ‘marriage’. His parents were skeptical, they know their son well, he’s silly and not so bright. He has a 3 women entourage following him around to clubs and various places because dude is good-looking and has money. He’s a playboy. At the club, women swarm around him trying to get his attention. The women he attracts, all gold-diggers.
At one point, his mother told him: “I have told you several times, no woman will love you sincerely, they only love your money. When I declared I was going to cut you off the inheritance, they were turned off.” Stupidly he said he still has his looks. “They might be interested in my looks instead of my money,” he told his mother. Oy this guy.
His parents are skeptical so they sent out his twin brother Thup to deal with him and figure out his new love interest.
