I'm liking this version so far. I really like how they fleshed out praek and nangek's childhood more. Nong Mali is totally adorable and it breaks my little heart seeing her cry even if it's acting. I'm sure Por would be so proud of her!
One scene that I always hated in the old version was when Tewarat killed the cow! Loool. So I'm SO happy they changed that in this version where he didn't kill it and it was one of his "buddies" that did it. And I love seeing how even though he is still an arrogant jerk, he still has some remorse. He felt bad the cow was actually killed and made sure his little buddies got some punishment from him for it. And wow, it actually showed a bit more on why he's such an asshole. He was and still is being abused by Captain's character, which is his adoptive father, correct? So no more cousin love thing going on, lol. But the child abuse was very sad to see. I'm glad he still remembers his nong Chompoo though! I don't remember if that was ever addressed in the old version? But it makes me happy! I'm SUCH A SUCKER FOR CHILDHOOD FRIENDS. It must be so confusing for Sarika to see her sweet P'Chai grow up to be so mean too. Welp, I hope we get to see moments where Sarika will remind him of his nong Chompoo and then he starts being suspicious of her hahaha. I can't wait to see Sarika break through his mask!
I loved that moment of Sarika and the older lady at the market. I don't remember if she was a mom to her or aunt to her but it was so sweet to see. The respect is still there from Sarika to her and I love to see it.
Next week, it looks like the scene where Tewarat gets jumped and Sarika saves him may be coming up? That was a favorite scene of mine in the old version. Hope they kept it, lmao. It was also the moment I felt like Tewarat started to really like her and continuously persued her afterwards. And another hated scene of mine was when Tewarat killed his own horse to prove a point to Sarika or something. Ugh. That scene seems to be coming up as well. ): This time he seems to be taking it really hard though. Well, I can't wait for next week! I'm so excited! Loved the old version so I hope I can love this version just as much!
I think ratings are pretty decent? I'm not too familiar with what's a decent or good rating for ONE31 dramas, but I think this number should be pretty decent. I hope it continues to go up! I think one of their higher ones right now is in the 4's so I hope FPD can reach that as well if it continues to be good.
