Back in October, Opps magazine asked several Thai stars the marriage and baby question, at what age do they believe they will be ready to settle down and have babies. Their answers will surprise you because it got me laughing, especially Chakrit, who said he wanted to get married at the tender age of 15 because he wanted to be a father. However, things did not turn out as he wanted to. Good thing guy, 15 is a little young.
Here we go again, another bad Kantana lakorn for Ch7. Last night I was going through the summary of “Jao Sao Rimtang (Roadside Bride)”, the lakorn replacing Kwan and Win’s “Theppha But Maya, Theppha Jamlaeng (the God of Deception and the Goddess of Disguises)”, it’s literally a lakorn fill with clichés.
Nang’ek played by “Poo” Praiya Suandokmai is an out of luck, poor, orphan girl raised by her money-hungry foster mom (Apiradee Pawaputanon), who has a spoiled brat daughter played by “Mint” Nawinda Bertotti. Her foster mom also has a no-good, rapist wannabe boyfriend played by Tharathip Seehadetrungchai (yea, I don’t know who that is), who on occasion will try to assault our nang’ek Rasa.
Our nang’ek is the ultimate “nangfah (angel)”, she is a diligent worker–values education, values hard-work, kind to others, innocent, virginal, not too shabby on the eyes. Though they treat her as an ATM machine, she refuses to abandon her makeshift, foster family because she feels indebted to them. Soon after her mother passed away so did her father, her foster mother took her in when she had no one to turn to. She feels a moral obligation to her evil foster mom who on many occasions will abuse and take advantage of her. Essentially our nang’ek will be a weak, kindhearted, idiot with spunk.
As for our pra’ek Akrin, played by ‘Stefan’ Tasit Sinkanawiwat, he is described as a good-looking, rich playboy with charm. He is a heir to a well-known fitness complex called M Fitness. Akrin sees women has a plaything and love as a game. His grandfather Amnat (Khun Suchao Pongwilai) is fed up with his immature, careless, insincere lifestyle and wants him to get married. If he doesn’t get marry by a certain time, he won’t inherit M Fitness. It will be given to his competitive sister Ornuma (Prae Amery) who also has to get marry if she wants to inherit the family business.
As the the marriage deadline slowly approaches and he doesn’t like any of his potential brides, Akrin decides to hire someone as his bride. He hires Rasa, the girl he likes and the only girl in Thailand who has the audacity to reject him every time he makes a move on her. Their marriage will be a sham, it will be for on year and he will pay her 2 million baht ($66,766 USD) total. He will give her 1 million baht at the beginning of their marriage and 1 million baht at the end of their marriage. Rasa accept his offer because she needs the money. Around that time, her foster mother finds herself in the hospital and needs immediate surgery. Thus this is how their life together begins through a fake marriage.
“Jao Sao Rimtang (Roadside Bride)” will air next Friday November 5, 2010 on Ch7.

Am I the only one looking forward to this lakorn? I don’t see a lot of buzz at Sarnworld forum, the thread for this lakorn is barely moving, it’s only on page 3 the last time I checked.
Noon Woranuch and ‘Aum’ Patcharapa Chaichue’s comedy slash revenge lakorn “Kulap Neua Mek (Roses Above the Clouds or Temptations of the roses)” is premiering this coming Monday, December 21, 2009 and I’m hyped. In the lakorn, Noon and Aum play two former bosom buddies who turn into foes. Noon plays Oranut, a wealthy young woman who betrayed her friend Airin (Aum) by kicking her out of the magazine company (“Working Women”) they started together and Alin’s fiance for her younger sister. Airin was so devastated after the betrayal, she vowed to bring down Oranut’s magazine company and to steal Oranut’s man if she was dating someone. Airin starts up the “Chic Women” magazine to compete with Oranut’s “Working Women” magazine and pursues Anawin (‘Stefan’ Tasit Sinkanawiwat), the guy that Oranut knew since college.
I’m looking forward to this lakorn because it’s not typical—no weak nang’eks, every character is tough and rai (bad) said Aum. Noon said it about life’s competition, what people do to survive in the community.
In the lakorn, Stefan is also known has Khun Coffee (Mr.Coffee) because the first time Airin first meet him without knowing who he was, she bumped into him at a coffee shop and spilled coffee on him.
