dear, do you know if they have english version of the novel? Would love to read it!! thank you!I watched it raw last night. Then earlier this morning, I found out that VIU has eng subs of this lakorn so I watched it all over again with better understanding.
It was a fun pilot episode and a fast-paced one. I love how the lakorn direction gives an in-depth understanding of Pang's side to make the viewers empathize her story more. Her actions, despite being bratty, was clearly justified. Even her gradual developing feelings for Arthit was felt because of the latter's willingness to befriend someone as problematic as her.
Mark is a ray of sunshine in the first episode. It is so refreshing to see him wink, smile like a Korean oppa and joke around so many times. He gives me a boy next door vibe with his fresh demeanour all over the whole episode. His character is such a joy to watch. He is indeed the Arthit (sunshine) of this lakorn. Just the first episode, you'll know what his role in this lakorn would be and that is to bring happiness and hope to the nang ek.
Chemistry-wise, I don't feel like Mark and Kao have 5 years of age gap. Both looks so fresh and endearing together. I'm happy that they were able to generate chemistry. Episode 1 has tons of cute scenes of them. It's like a calm before the storm kind of feeling because, you know, a lakorn won't be a lakorn without a dilemma. (And since I read the book I know how ep 2 will become the 360 degree turnover of events)
Overall, I am happy with the outcome of the first episode. I think I'm going to love Sonix Boom as a production company now more than ever. Trab Fah Mee Tawan started to have a far better editing and sequencing than Mark's previous lakorn this year. *coughs* I hope this lakorn will be consistent up until the very last episode.
