And I’m back with another complaint–I mean review. Almost forgot about this one haha. I’ll be subbing a new lakorn of Now in Duangjai Kabot so I wanted to officially close this chapter of her as Pinpak before she sails on to become a princess of a city called Muang Jaai and have another bodyguard protecting her hehehhe. I personally felt underwhelmed by this lakorn. When I found out it was a revenge slash bodyguard protecting the female lead, you would expect some kind of angst, well I sure did, but it didn’t quite turn out that way. The revenge wasn’t that intriguing to me. Something was missing and I don’t know what it was. Like it wasn’t a bad lakorn but it wasn’t a great lakorn either. Kem and Now are two individual beautiful people and their chemistry started really late. If anything Now was giving more chemitsry towards him from the beginning than he did. As the title states, Huajai Look Phuchai, the whole lakorn revolves around our male protagonist. Kem struggled a little. Most of the time, his eyes was blank whether it was a drama scene or a romantic scene, I felt he didn’t give it all. Like some scene required emotions at a ten level, I felt he gave it around a five. Now I’m only being critical is because I know he has potential. So those Kem’s many wives out there, do not attack me LOL. If I’m being completely honest, Now held down the fort for them. The acting, the emotions, it was all her. I was not convinced at all that Nop even loved Pin in the beginning. I don’t know if it was his character or his acting, I just didn’t know. But finally, I was convinced after they had got back together after the whole secret was revealed. I felt Kem was more relaxed and comfortable in his character than from the beginning. So you tell me if it was his acting or his character or both hahaha. Kem is fairly a newbie and he had two lakorns prior to this one but I honestly think this lakorn was too soon for him. He has two other dramas (genre) coming up and hopefully he does better in those two. But hey, even if he sucks, he has the pretty face hahaha. I can tolerate bad acting as long as the person has a good looking face (Neko understands this better than anyone LOL) Now’s character Pinpak, gosh what a leap from Kaewalai in Nang Rai hahaha. It was a fresh character to see her in and this is probably the closest laid back character she has played since Hob Rak Ma Hom Pah (her first CH7 lakorn). I hope she accepts other genres in the future. She already convinced us she’s good at doing drama, I would love to see her in a rom-com. Kem as well. I think he will excel in that genre better because their both goofy people in real life.
I don’t have much to say about this lakorn much because it’s a mix of feelings. The only times I have a lot to say is when a lakorn is really good or really bad LOL. This was in between but I do want to talk about the last two episodes. So many flash backs! Like they could have combined 14+15 together without all those flash backs. Seriously! It was the opposite of PIYI, that lakorn added nonsense to kill time while this one added flashbacks of possibly every main character. They had no new scenes to add lol. They could have showed us Pin and Nop’s life after they got married or something. It’s good in a way to show what each character went through but not really lol. Overall it was an okay lakorn. My mom liked it though hehe. Did you? Or you didn’t? Comment below.
Special thanks to the lovely timing team for helping out. Much appreciated. Thank you to those that have tuned in from the beginning. Those that haven’t tuned in yet and were waiting for me to do a review, sorry this wasn’t much help lol.
