You and I, under the starry sky.

16 Aug

Oh yay, done with NBRGWH! Initially I thought this lakorn had the potential to join the ‘Love It!’ ranks in my lakorn list but the plot never delved deeper into the many interpersonal relationships and the ending fell a little flat with an unnecessary misunderstanding to keep the pra’nang apart. Not to mention the cheesy reconciliation party where Prap was auctioned off to Napdao. The lakorn keeps everything low-key so though the last few episodes were a tad drawn out, it wasn’t annoying but at the same time it didn’t manage to scratch where it really itches. I didn’t care for Job and Fah’s storyline and wish the lakorn had not included them and concentrated more on Prap/Napdao/Noinah. But since it was part of the story, the discovery of Noinah’s real parents is something that ought to have big emotional impact on both Noinah and Prap, as well as Job and Fah who meet again after many years. Yet it was all over so quickly and easily that it felt contrived.


That said, I still do love Napdao and all our pra’nang moments. I watched 2/3 of the lakorn without subs so I missed out on many details in their conversations which help develop their relationship but even so, I feel a contented happiness when they are together, bickering, helping each other, or just chilling at the little hut in the middle of nowhere.


This hut has got to be my favourite location in the lakorn. Parp goes there to take photos of the night sky while Napdao takes time out there when she needs to think and it’s their little world where all is calm. NBRGWH is definitely something I will re-watch in parts whenever I need a pick-me-up drama!

    Wow! You’re really on a lakorn binge. All it takes is one and then you start craving more, heh. I don’t know if I can take a farm lakorn, most of them seem really cheesy, although this couple does look nice. And I’m starting to really like Araya. The first lakorn of hers I watched, and couldn’t get through is Wiwa Wah Woon which fell flat to me with all the annoying bickering of the couple. Her character was pretty lame in it.

    The only other subbed lakorn of hers I know about is Fai Chon Saeng, which sounds somewhat intriguing.

      Haa, yea, it’s like a switch has been flipped on. I sure hope this good lakorn streak continues. 😉 What about you? Fangirling over any lakorn or other dramas lately?
      NBRGWH isn’t completely cheese-free but I find it surprisingly restrained for a farm-romcom, unlike Rak Ork Akard which made me headdesk so hard with its OTT-ness and Om’s bad acting. Needless to say I dropped that one like a hot potato.
      The first time I saw Chompoo was also in WWW but it couldn’t hold my interest beyond half hour so I didn’t have much of an impression but now I totally adore her! Think I shall check out Fai Chon Saeng too.

        Oh, I think I’m going to like Arang a lot, watching Bridal Mask (kinda have a like/dislike relationship with that one), and yeah, I have a number of lakorns I want to watch before the year’s end, but I’m most intrigued by Game Loon Ruk, about a news anchor man hater who gets a new male anchor. It’s very short, 11 episodes, so I’ll watch that first.

        Haven’t liked any Andrew lakorn really, so if this is good, maybe I’ll watch more since his great fan club has subbed so many of them!

        If only other actors/actresses had such great subbing groups. Sigh.

    I am giving this lakorn a shot because you somehow made thru it lol I gave up the first episode because I let my heart take control of my brain —> *goes to hide bc it is so damn cheesy on my part* I try not to let news effect my lakorn watching but sometimes it just hits too dam hard that I can’t bring myself to watch their lakorn(s).

      Were there any negative news of the lakorn/cast?

        Peter Corps got into a fist fight and his answers knocked me out of the park. anyways I watched all 60 clips with sub in one setting. quite addicting. I hink I should stop there n come up with the rest of the storyline lol

      • J August 18, 2012 at 12:29 PM #

        Oh, I didn’t know about that news.
        It’s addicting right? Haa, I too watched all available subbed episodes in one shot and was so obsessed I finished the remaining parts w/o subs. Napdao is such a lovable n’ek. 😉

        good thing I have other dramas to help ease the pain on waiting for the rest of the sub.

    Sigh I finally finished this lakorn without sub, but will definitely watch it again when the subber gets it done. I can see why you said the last 3 episode felt flat minus the adorable cute mini me Napdao. OMG she is like the cutest thing ever in the world. I instantly forgave the lack of a good ending to this lakorn lol The ride was a joy. I liked it. 3/4th of the lakorn (mainly the beginning, middle and adorable baby girl in the end) is in the LOVE it category for me. I just wished there were more skinship between the OTP!!!

    • J August 21, 2012 at 5:44 AM #

      Haa, I was dying of the cuteness at the last scene of their new family and it made me wish that the scriptwriters hadn’t included the last misunderstanding and instead gave us some scenes of Prap/Napdao’s marriage and her pregnancy. Sigh, a girl can wish.
      Yes, I want more skinship!! Does Chompoo not do real kisses? Their one and only kiss scene was so fake and the cheek kisses I’ve seen Chompoo do here/in MT/FCS were all only a quick peck.

        she smooched ken twice! I think chompoo finally found her koo kwan of her own which is peter lol

        another flaw that I found was that prab is just too young to have a teenage daughter unless praifah was like 5 years older than him. their age were never disclosed 😦

      • J August 21, 2012 at 10:16 AM #

        y she no kiss Peter?? 😦 Rome/Chompoo pair got many fans after MT but I too think Peter is a much better match!

        In the beginning I was quite sure Noinah wasn’t Prap’s real daughter cos like you said, he looks too young to have a daughter of that age but in the end Job looks even younger than him! Meh, it’s one of those ‘you just gotta accept it’ lakorn thing.

        I have accepted my faith as a lakorn watcher. You just gotta accept the many shitty things they throw at you lol from watching many dramas from other country, Thai lakorns seem to throw the most crap.

        It can’t be Chompoo, she has kissed a few of her costars before. I think it is Peter lol. He does have a girlfriend from what I have gather after researching him lol
