Here goes nothing..
Posted on November 2, 2011
I have a confession. My heart is not in this lakorn- I’m only watching for Alex and Mint scenes and it wouldn’t be fair to fans of “Rak Patiharn” to have such a bias recap every week. Therefore, I will not be recapping each episode. I’m not in the mood for average actors and shaky plots at this point, I’m merely watching this because of the cuteness between Alex and Mint. Call me lame. Even their storyline is not what you would call stellar, but they make it up with uber cuteness and great chemistry. So there, I got it off my chest.
I came to this realization when I wanted to FF a lot of the scenes (and I couldn’t because I was watching it live) When Mart and Kim came out, I was barely paying attention. I was either snacking, replying to comments or doing dishes. I have my priorities. I will continue to eng sub Alex-Mint only scenes. I’m not sure if this is any indication but even channel 3’s website has full synopsis all the way up to episode 5. We’re only up to episode 3 mind you.. but no worries, Miracle of Love is being subbed at Viki and please find yourself there if you’d like to watch this lakorn in full eng sub.
Isn’t it bad that I’m giving up on Mart-Kim already? I feel like they haven’t made any progress. If anything, he made progress with his ex girlfriend. I had thought Panom had forgotten her goal- which is to find her grandmother (now that her grandfather is dead.) She didn’t make any progress on that either- even if she attempted to visit her grandfather’s house and learned (from the caretaker) that her grandmother hasn’t forgiven her mom. Why can’t she look her up on the yellow pages or something? Do some stalking and find a way to reach her. On top of that, we have Thut continuing to manhandle her and getting the truth out of her. I’m still trying to figure out the point in her being “mae baan” for the Nareusorn. Maybe just to link her and the rest of the cast together? I’m confused.
At least we have Alex and Mint to watch- otherwise I would not get pass ep 2. Sorry. I apologize if I’m incoherent; it’s late, I’m confused and feeling rather jaded about this lakorn. Feel free to throw any defenses at me so I can better understand.

i cant say anything much because ive been skipping kim mart scenes as well — i’ve no idea what’s going on though because i dont understand thai. all i know is that whenever alex and mint are on screen, they just ooze out cuteness that im grinning from one ear to another lol!
it’s not that i dont want to watch kim and mart — in fact i do watch kim scenes sometimes but when mart comes on i just get a little lazy to watch…
i like cute and adorable in lakorns i watch, it’s not just alex and mint 😉
Indeed, when they come on screen, I grin like an idiot. Their chemistry is so palpable. I was just thinking.. the t-sers are nothing like the tone of the lakorn lol. It’s so dramatic and breathless- hinting towards impending sadness- when in actuality it’s not. There are funny scenes (the Nareusorn family), unreasonable scenes (from Thut) and extremely cute scenes (Alex-Mint.) Mayhaps down the road there will be some emotional scenes too but I’m not sure if Kim or Mart has the acting chops to make it convincing. I hope to be proven wrong!
i know right? i sure hope these two (alex and mint) will get another project together. im a bigger fan of them two than mint and mark. i literally squee and stuff when i watch their scenes..i love them denying their crushes — cause it’s so obvious that they’re both are crushing on each other but they keep on arguing and continuing their ‘i dont like you’ facade. im sure this wont last long 😛
i’m more worried about mart than i am about kim tbh…kim is pretty to look at (girl is gorgeous!) and her acting is better than a wood. she isnt the best but she’s not cringe worthy, so i dont mind her. mart — idk, i just feel like his body language is so stiff, maybe if he loosens up a little he’d be better~
well anyway, i hope mart’s character wont be blocking the love between alex and mint too much xD but we know alex will not be listening to mart anyway so hee 😛
i’m sorry lol i cant remember their lakorn names still! i know alex is paat and mint is nammon (i think) so i just used their real names~
Ah.. that’s why I adore Paat (Alex) over Thut(Mart). I want to see how much he’s going to attempt to keep Paat and Nammon apart.
The names in this lakorn are so similar it’s driving me insane: case in point:
Kim is Nichamon pretending to be Pranom. (nick name Mon and Nom..)
Mint is Nammon which has the Mon ending.
Mom is Pan-orn
Aunt is Pornpan
Brother is Pansorn
Thut’s ex is Nicha, which sounds like Nichamon
Thut’s name when spoken rhymes with Paat.
How are we expected to keep them straight?
I’m ok with using their real names lol, except for Nammon and Paat- since we are exclusively watching them heeh.
This lakorn is ok I guess…
I couldn’t agree more…I am only watching for alex and mint…thank you for subbing their wondering scenes together!
You’re welcome. It does help from having to FF through the lakorn, doesn’t it? Heeh..
Just checking in and saying hello. Been busy with school to watch any lakorns since Roy Mai ended. I love how honest you are about not caring about Mart’s scenes in this series. His character in Tas Rak annoyed me so much that I don’t follow Mart anymore. 😉
Hi Ne! Yes long time no see. Hope all is well with you. Thanks for taking the time to stop by every now and then, I appreciate your support.
School is always a priority =) I totally understand. I did take a very long break from lakorn watching myself. But have been enjoying them again. I don’t think I can stop forever.. xoxo
Fia! I’m sorry I misspelled your name in my earlier post! Yea of course I’ll support your blog! I have it bookmarked on my iPad safari browser! 🙂
Probably will check out GRGR during the Xmas holidays. I’m only checking it out after looking thru your recaps. 🙂 if you didn’t have an honest opinion, I wouldn’t bother checking it out at all and will wait for the next lakorn with either Aff, Anne, Janie, Ken, or Tik stars in. Any word for any of these five starring in something in 2012? I just know of Anne being paired up with Mart in Qi Pao. Hope they switch him out with ANYONE else. I thought she was going to be paired with Tik in something, but not anymore I suppose. Hrmm…
Hi Ne, no worries about the misspelled!
You’re going to watch GRGR? Yay! I think you will enjoy the episodes leading up to the last ones, they are filled with rom-com. Now it’s taking a turn for the sinister but I love it anyway.
As for upcoming lakorns starring the above mentioned actors:
Aff- Rak Prakasit
Anne- Qi Pao, they’re sticking with Mart because according to the book, he’s supposed to fit the role well. But if you ask me I’m not sure about that hehe.
Ken- Rak Kon Tao Fah
Not sure about Janie or Tik but I’m sure they have something lined up.. it would be awesome to see Tik and Ann together!
Mart?? Really? Ugh. I love Anne though, so I’ll have to tolerate him then.
Thanks for the update for those future lakorns. 🙂 I’ll have to check out the synopsis on Asian Fuse previously known as Sarnworld wiki or whatever. Lol
Oh wow im like the opposite to everyone. I like this lakorn, its chill and easy to watch. Not like those nang rai everywhere or overly melodramatic kinda lakorn, so i like it. Its a laid back lakorn which fits my taste. I wouldnt say I love it tho, cos there are some annoying boring bits bt of course every lakorn has them so…
Although I must admit im more into Paat&Nammon ! They are toooooo cute and they steal the spotlight away from the main pranang (Kim&Mart) for me. I always anticipate their scenes together <333
@Cheny, I tend to go through my ups and downs while watching any particular lakorn, lol. For me, the saving grace for RP is Paat&Nammon, as I truly adore them! I’m glad to hear that you are enjoying all of the lakorn though. =)
