So, my last post was lamenting that nobody told me Ton Ruk Rim Rua actually started airing. This post is letting you know I’m at the halfway mark of this drama. I do realize it finished airing a few hours ago though, so now I’m avoiding spoilers like the plague (which is a lot easier to do in the Lakorn world!)
Verdict as of finishing episode 5?
I like it quite a bit.
My favorite part of Panyachon Kon Krua was, of course, Mark and Kim. That’s why this is a hit for me. Like PKK, they’re here. And there’s a bonus–there aren’t as many side stories going on! The entire drama solely focuses on them. HALLELUJAH! On the downside, Kim’s character, Bau, is more annoying. It’s not due to her work dedication–I can appreciate a woman who’s hardworking. It’s because of how she treats Kob.
I’m gonna be fair here and say that Kob hasn’t seriously confessed to her, but she’s kind of foolish for not recognizing how good he is to her despite his childishness. Plus, he’s always aching to spend time with her–take a hint, Bau. Oh, and she’s an ingrate. And the worst part for me? However many times she mentions she’s dreaming about Tin and shoves it in Kob’s face. For goodness sake, Kob was doing you a favor by getting married to you. Then, he tries to treat you well, but it’s like you won’t have it. Sure, he can be an embarrassment, but he’s also adorable and bends over backward in your favor. I just want to shake Bau and ask her, “Are you blind woman? BLIND?!”
Speaking of blind… Tin’s eyebrows… :’(((((( WHY SO THICK?
As for Mark, I like his character here. At first, I really missed how much more sophisticated he was in his previous dramas, but then I realized he’s an even bigger sweetheart here so I can deal. Plus, his character’s not actually childish in every respect, so I don’t find him as annoying as Bau does :P.
EDIT: I’m up to episode 8 and just want to throw Bau out a window. I wouldn’t even wish her happiness, except her happiness is apparently tied with Kob’s. OMG. FRUSTRATION.
KOB, YOU’RE TOO GOOD FOR ALL THE WOMEN AROUND YOU! My heart bleeds for you, man.
EDIT 2: Can somebody tell me how much I have to skip for Bau to stop being an idiot??????
