Kidnapping, angst, crazy unrequited love, misunderstandings…it must be drama!

No I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have just been trying to catch up on all the drama and fanfic out there. A futile effort I know since there is just no way I could do this and maintain a full time job.

I have though, started to watch a Thai drama named “Jam Loey Rak”. I have made it to episode 6 through sheer force of will and, I admit, morbid curiosity as to how in the world they are going to get the two main characters together. I have missed episode 1 but from what I have gathered Harit’s brother died after having his heart broken by someone named Sansanee. In some twisted bid for revenge Harit kidnaps Sansanee. The problem is he has made a mistake and kidnapped the wrong person.

Episodes 2 through 6 has Harit treating So as if she were dirt and mentally torturing her with threats of violence and sexual assault. He has his servant Bai also watching after So and does not hesitate to beat him and threaten him whenever So makes one of her tries for freedom. I wouldn’t touch a guy like this with a ten foot pole. He really seems to have an abusive personality. I understand, for the sake of the story line, his treatment of her but the fact that he whips his servant to the point of leaving marks on his back…well I have yet to see what could possibly make her fall in love with him. I’m basically hanging on to this drama to see how the writers are going to accomplish this one.
