The first episode of “Nang Rai” which means female antagonist, introduces us to our protagonist, Kaewalai (Now Tisanart), and how she was discovered and came to star as the “nang’rai” in this lakorn world. Kae has been blessed with amazing looks, but prior to entering the entertainment industry, she worked multiple jobs to support her poor family, which includes the gambling addict mother, drunk father, and three selfish siblings (and a partridge in a pear tree). Men who couldn’t contain their own perverted thoughts decide to kidnap and rape her after a construction shift was over. Thankfully, Anuwadee (Maggi Apa) – a newbie model/dancer – and her mother, discovers Kae being dragged into the trees and rescues her.
