Someone at the BGST Pantip thread shared the picture above to represent Aum and his father’s relationship in this lakorn. Poor kid, he had to lick the bottom of his father’s feet, just like Aum in the lakorn. I don’t mean literally, I mean metaphorically.
I have no thoughts on BGST as of yet because it’s just the first episode. Eight out of Ten you can’t tell whether a lakorn is good by the first episode, at least from my experiences. It’s usually the second or the third episode that draws me in. BGST’s first episode is very neutral–there’s not a lot of story going on because it’s the introduction to the family and characters and how they develop into the person they are, presently in the lakorn.
I do like Aff’s feisty character. I just love how Aum and Aff first meet and how she kicked the chair as she was leaving his restaurant.
Here is the scene:
Aum and Aff first meet at his restaurant. She doesn’t have money to pay for the food because she forgot to bring her wallet. Aum doesn’t believe her and insults her in front of everyone :”Hey, I meet customers like you everyday, if you don’t have money, why don’t you just beg for food?”
Aff offended: “Hey, really I forgot my wallet. Money that much, I won’t deceive you.”
Tui, who plays Aff’s adopted brother comes along. Aff becomes enrage when Tui doesn’t defend her, he is more embarrassed by her actions. He calmly pays her meal and drags her out of the restaurant.
Aff pulls loose and points at Aum, “Even if I’m starving to death, I will never come eat at your restaurant.”
Aum:”What kind of woman are you, you’re not even cute.”
Aff shouts back:“I never wanted you to love me.”--you know this comment is gonna come back and haunt her. Eventually, she will want him to love her.
[“Narak” means cute in Thai, “Rak” means love in Thai. At the end of “narak” is “rak”, when Aff says: “I never wanted you to love me” ;it’s kinda a play on words. It’s using what he said to her advantage. It’s hard to explain if you don’t understand the language.]
Before she makes her final exit, she kicks one of the chairs. I thought that was the most funniest thing because of Aum’s expression. He was like “What the hell just happened? She is crazy!”
Tui and Aum’s characters are just pathetic. I could not believe Aum washed his brothers’ clothing after they insulted him and Tui has this inferior complex with his adopted family. The guy feels like he isn’t good enough or deserves the love that Aff’s family gives to him because he was abandon by his birth parents. Very frustrating.
