Synopsis: 

Malinee (Ploy Chermarkn) is a famous model from Bangkok. Phoo Yai Leenawat (Por Thrisadee) is the headman of Howling Dog Creek village. He sends her a letter one day letting her know that Madam Wan, her grandmother, passed away and left Malinee her house and several acres of land. Her grandmother had always wanted Ma to come live in the country and leave Bangkok. If Ma would decide she didn’t want the land, the only person her grandmother would allow her to sell to is Phoo Yai Lee.

No thoughts of actually returning there were in her mind until she caught her boyfriend Pradit, “Dick”, (“Tui” Kiatkamol Latha) cheating on her. Fed up with it, she decides to take a trip to Howling Dog Creek to get away from him. There she winds up meeting a country guy who loves to give her trouble – little does she know that the fellow is the Phoo Yai Lee she keeps wondering about since her grandmother mentioned him in her letter.

This was my very first Thai lakorn! I fell in love with it from the first episode! I’d always wanted to try to watch one to see if I would like them, and this one came highly recommended for a first time lakorn watcher. It’s a cute rom-com, each episode just helped it get better and better! 

This lakorn introduced me to Por Thrisadee – an actor who I definitely want to see more of after this drama! I loved him as a country guy, found his character adorable and cute. Paired up with Ploy the two of them were a great couple and the acting was done pretty good! I learned that in lakorns actors often come back to work with each again in another drama, and I’d like to see another drama with both of them as leads again.

And Pued! So adorable! He’s going to be a ladies killer when he grows up – such a cutie! I think he was my favorite character. 

Dick was a dick. That is all I’ll say about him. Out of all western names he could have chosen he picked that name. It suited him very well. And Pathum got on my nerves a lot. 

All in all though – the acting was good!

I loved the main songs to this lakorn! Even the annoying Phee Poo Yai by Buddhist Bless. It got stuck in my head a lot while watching it and they played it so much! But I loved the other songs – “Khao Kue Thur Chai Mai” [He Could Be The One] by Demi and “Hai Chan Doo Lae Thur” [Let Me Take Care Of You] by Nam Ronnadet was my favorite!

I can see myself rewatching this drama sometime. I really enjoyed it – it made me laugh, frustrated me, but at the same time the friendship was great and the love story was cute! I just have too many dramas I want to watch right now to rewatch it.

Overall – for my first lakorn I loved it! I’m glad I started off with watching this one. It also helped introduce me to the language. Thai used to sound very foreign to me but after watching this lakorn it helped me start to break that foreign barrier and begin to recognize the sounds and even a few words here and there. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a cute love story (:

I watched this drama a couple months ago, but I just wrote this review now, haha. So I don’t have any other thoughts to add (:

“Phee Poo Yai”

Khao Kue Thur Chai Mai”

“Hai Chan Doo Lae Thur”

My overall rating for this lakorn is an 8/1O
