Prepare to be captivated by an unconventional love story! I cannot express enough gratitude to a dear friend who introduced me to this hidden gem during the holiday season. In my opinion, it was the standout Thai lakorn of the year and ticked all the boxes for a remarkable drama. The plotline unfolded flawlessly, the background music and original soundtracks were on point, and the talented cast delivered exceptional performances. This series is a binge-worthy masterpiece that keeps you engaged with its intricate mysteries without...
any dull or fast-forward moments.
The show seamlessly combines romance, comedy, action, and suspense, creating a viewing experience unlike any other. The narrative revolves around an assassin who is assigned to eliminate his ex-girlfriend's older sister (the reasons behind this will be revealed). However, instead of carrying out the hit, he becomes her protector against the forces of darkness. Through a series of misunderstandings, their relationship evolves from animosity to an extraordinary bond, as they uncover the truth behind the younger sister's untimely demise, an illicit drug conspiracy within the protagonist's company, and their own misconceptions. I strongly urge you to watch this series without revealing more, as its compelling storyline and suspense will keep you hooked until the very end.
Now let's discuss the cast. I must confess, I wasn't initially a fan of the two leads. Having seen Mik in previous lakorns, I found his performances to be rather average. However, this series has completely changed my perception, as Mik displays exceptional acting prowess. His portrayal of the enigmatic, yet kind-hearted, protective, intelligent, and, most importantly, romantic bodyguard will make you swoon. As for the female lead, her voice initially grated on my nerves, considering it was my first time witnessing her talent. However, I assure you, the other aspects of this drama overshadow any negatives related to her voice. The romantic and comedic moments between the leads are simply delightful, and their chemistry ignites the screen. Additionally, the show features lovable supporting characters, as well as deceitful ones harboring secrets. Although there are a few amusing interactions between a potential secondary couple, the focus remains on the bromance between the male lead and his loyal best friend, Pong—a truly endearing relationship that will undoubtedly win your heart.
Lastly, the production value of this lakorn is astonishing. The OSTs and BGM enhance the intensity and flavor of the series, with certain action sequences reminiscent of intense moments in popular Korean dramas like The K. All in all, I highly recommend this lakorn to viewers of all preferences. For me, it will forever remain an unforgettable series that made me laugh, shed tears, and unquestionably fall head over heels. (And let's not forget our newfound appreciation for Mik, hehe.) Here's to hoping for more extraordinary storylines such as this in the future.
