Kum Nang Kruan Episode 1- 3
It’s been a long time since I have done summaries for drama. I finally decided to come back with Channel 5 drama “Kum Nang Kruan” by Exact – Scenario starring Toomtam Yuthana, Pinky Savika and Mo Monchanok. This drama focuses on the past and the present.
Just a bit of a summary. Yordlah’s spirit is locked in Kum Wiang Kao for hundreds of years (not sure how many centuries lol). She is really vengeful towards Dararai/Pimdao because Dararai used black magic to steal Luang Thep/Tripope from her. So, when she awakes and become a bit more powerful each day, she uses her manipulation to have Dararai and Luang Thep return to Kum Wiang Kao. She wants to punish Dararai. How will the story unfold and what really is the true story? The story will unfold.
I really like how the drama is going so far. Toomtam is one of the new pra’ek that I could watch so, it isn’t so bad doing a summary for this drama. HAHA This is my first time watching Mo and I think she is okay so far. They really do have chemistry though, so, this is a good thing too.
Toomtam – Tripope or Luang Thep
Pinky – Yordlah or Saenglah
Mo – Pimdao or Dararai
Grand – Malarin
Oh Anchyd – Kaew
The story begins with Yordlah singing a poem for Luang Thep, “Pe’Thep, my sweetheart, you are the sun and I am the moon. You are separated from me for so long. Where are you? My love for you will never wither.” Then she turns around and change her tone speaking to a girl called Dararai, “You villain. You viper. You w****. You Traitor. You stole Pe’Thep from me. No matter where you are, I will seek revenge and destroy you in every century and every lives.”
There were a group of teenagers trying to prove if the house is haunted. Then a group of thieves or drug dealers are also there either by stealing or taking money out of there.
At another house, the big house, where the old lady and the old man talks about keeping the old house (smaller house) protected and clean out. The old man assures the old lady that no one dares to go there or would try to do anything. However, it is weird that it is raining during a month it shouldn’t be.
Because of the fighting and shooting at the old house, the blood that seek through the protection to the three graves awakens Yordlah and her two minions. When they come out to the new world, Yordlah wonders why the world change so much. One of her servants says it is because time has pass for so long and they were lock for too long. Everything changes and everyone has long ago left them. However, Yordlah refuses to accept this change and say that everything will come back to look the same.
The old lady of the house has a feeling something horrible is going on so she told the old man to go get Mahajamloy. On that night, the old lady heard the sound of the Seung instrument playing. She opens the cover and the strings are moving on itself. Yordlah actually is controlling the old lady to bring that instrument to her. One of the servants sees the old lady climbing on the dead horse. When the old lady arrives at the old house, it is in good shape like it is many years ago. Yordlah asks the old lady if she knew who Yordlah is. The old lady says yes Yordlah is her ancestors. Yordlah thanks the old lady for taking care of her stuff and how it is still feels like brand new. Yordlah tells the old lady that her duty is finish thus she can finally now rest in peace. Yordlah finally has most of her things back. Yordlah tells her crow to come to her and order the crow to go look for Luang Thep.
In the big clean room in Bangkok, Tripope is dreaming of Yordlah calling for him, “Pe’Thep, my sweetheart. You are the sun and I am the moon.”
Tripope shows up at his management office because he was request to go there. His management tells him that they’ve received a new project that is going to be 4 miniseries with 4 cultures. They’re still searching to see who will match to play the roles but there is no script yet. Tripope says he is almost done filming his other drama and the other one probably won’t start in another 2-3 months. Pe’Soo says that is a good thing because he is available to play in the miniseries. Pe’Tha says at least they’re lucky they picked to do about the northern Thailand’s culture because everything will be easy for them. Tripope says he hasn’t even accept to play yet. He doesn’t even know what the story is going to be about. He doesn’t even know his character or who he is playing with. Pe’Tha says he doesn’t know either because they don’t even have an idea what the story is going to be about.
Tripope calls Kaew, who is a writer and a friend of his to write a script for them. Kaew accepts because he is jobless and needs money. Kaew is also in debts too. Tripope receives a call asking for help to replace someone at an event.
At one of the restaurant, Tripope picks up his script and reads it out loud, “These women wanted it too. They submit themselves to me and I just give them what they want. We all have fun together. We all get the benefit. So, why are they asking for my responsibility now?” He scoffs at the script and think the pra’ek roles these days are getting badder. He complains to himself if accepting this role is a wise choice.
Pimdao is arrive at the event venue and is going to park her car but the security says it is only for the celebrity who comes for the event. Pimdao says she’s also a celebrity. The security tells her that to be a celebrity has to be like Tripope and ride a luxurious car. Basically, she’s a new actress so the security doesn’t know. HAHA Pimdao says she can go park somewhere else.
In the dressing room, one of the staffs ask that Tripope has to take his shirt off. However, Tripope refuses to take off his shirt because it was not in the contract. He wasn’t informed of the change. He tells the lady if she go tell the owner of the event if they don’t agree then they can go look for someone else. The lady says that it is fine if he doesn’t want to take his shirt off. She will talk to the owner of the organizer.
One of the girl, Pimdao’s friend comes in asking why Pimdao isn’t her makeup done yet. Pimdao says she came in late because it took her one hour looking for a parking space due to a superstar stealing her space. Tripope though has no idea that Pimdao is being sarcastic to him because he has his headphone on. He has the two girls boiling though for reading his script about women wanting it too and he’s just giving it to them. So, why are they asking for his responsibility now. The girls do not know that he is reading his script. HAHA
To get back at him, Pimdao pour water on him during the actual show. People in the audience are shocked. But the show must go on and so, Tripope adds his own script into the show by kissing her! HA. Does she deserve that? And he is not being a gentleman. LOL
In the morning, Pimdao comes down for breakfast and says that the event last night is easy. All she has to do is smile and she could get a big check. She tells her sister to go put it in the bank. Her mother asks if the main guy yesterday is Tripope. Her sister ask how is it working with Tripope. Pimdao says he’s not even handsome and act all high and mighty like he’s a big shot. Her mom asks why doesn’t she likes Tripope. Pimdao says because Tripope is a playboy and he probably try to charm every women. The maid says if that is her, she wouldn’t need to be charm because she likes likes him.
There is an interview of Tripope and Pimdao on tv about their kissing scene at the event. Tripope says that they have known each other for awhile now and they are getting closer due to him being a fan of her and following her work. The reporter asks about the kissing if it’s script or offscript. Pimdao cuts in saying they’re just following the script. Tripope says Pimdao is a cute person and he is sure that in the future they will get closer. Pimdao tells her family that it is just the angle and so the family teases her.
At the office, Pe’Soo asks Tripope when did he become close to Pimdao. Tripope says that last night’s event was the first time they met. Pe’Soo says she knows what Pimdao’s plan is. Pimdao is trying to ride on Tripope’s fame. That’s how new celebrities work. They are evil. Pe’Tha says why is she saying that? Does she knows them?
Kaew is having a writer’s block and couldn’t get anywhere. He also has to worry about his debt. Someone knock on the door and is is the people from Kum Wiang Kao from the North comes looking for him. They say the will the old lady left specify that he inherit Kum Wiang Kao even though Kaew is a far removed distant cousin. So, Kaew goes to Chiang Mai. Tripope says he might go to write a story for them. Tripope tells Pe’Tha and Pe’Soo to wait and that Kaew wouldn’t abandon his job.
Pimdao is dreaming. Suddenly, her clothes change into traditional northern Thailand costume. She sees Yordlah and Luang Thep. Yordlah asks, “Who is that?!” Pimdao wakes up from the dream and is confuse. She picks up the magazine and Tripope is on one of them. She says to herself, who told him to appear in her dream.
They tells Kaew that he inherits everything. They tells him that the old lady she isn’t sick or anything but all of a sudden, she wants to change her will. Then she died. One of the maids cries and says that is not normal because the bad spirit took the old lady. The horse ghost came and took the old lady.
When Tripope reach Kaew through the phone to ask about the script, Kaew refuses to write a script. Kaew says he inherited millions of money thus he doesn’t have to work anymore. Tripope says that Kaew just can’t abandon his job. Kaew promised to write one.
Yordlah summons Kaew to go see her. She tells him the reason why his cousin left everything for him. That Yordlah is the reason why Kaew inherit everything. Yordlah tells him that due to his job, she chose him. Yordlah allows him to play for many days but it’s now time for him to listens her every word. He has to remember what she tells him. She will tell him a sad love story between the beautiful daughter of Kum Wiang Kao from the north and a politician man from the south. Their love that was destroy by her unfaithful of a sister. The viper sister who betrayed her.
At night, both Pimdao and Tripope dreams about Yordlah and ask the same question, “This woman again?”
Yordlah controls Kaew to write the story call “Kum Nang Kruan”. Pe’Soo and Pe’Tha is arguing about who is going to write the story since Kaew is not going to do it anymore. Pe’Soo now likes Kaew because he is super rich when before she looks down on him. ha. She said if they’re rich you like them because they will have a lot of connections. However, Kaew e-mail them the finish script.
At Pimdao’s house, Pimdao’s sister comes back and sees Pimdao checking the internet. She sees that on pantip 50% are cheering for Tripope and Pimdao. The maid comes and says that last she saw 90% were anti-ing Pimdao. Her sister asks why is Pimdao angry? Is it because 51% cheering is too little? Pimdao says she’s reading the comments his fans bashing her. The sister tells her to read the comments that cheer them.
Pe’Tha gives Tripope the whole script. That it only takes three days for Kaew to finish the script. Pe’Soo enters the room asking Tripope to take her along to the event. But Tripope goes out before Pe’Soo comes back from changing her earrings. Pe’Tha tells him to go and be quiet. HAHA
Yordlah is angry she can’t see Dararai (Pimdao). Her servant says perhaps Dararai still have some merit protecting her. Yordlah asks, what merit? Dararai had done a lot of karma towards her yet Dararai receives happiness with Pe’Thep. Her servant says that soon Dararai’s protection will be lift, then they will be able to see her. Yordlah says, that is correct because Dararai framed her as the one creating bad karma. From now on, everyone will know the true story.
At the event of G, Pat says that Lindsay is trying to copy from Madonna’s music video. Pimdao teases her not to mention Madonna because it tells people how old they are. So, her friends pretend to only know Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. Pimdao says that she doesn’t think Jae Berd is trying to make Lindsay copy Madonna but more like Marilyn Monroe because Madonna also copied from Marilyn. A male voice from behind asks how do Pimdao knows that it is copy from Marilyn? Pimdao says, “Mae, just look at the name of the new nang’ek.” Pimdao finally realizes that it is a guy from behind and notices him as Tripope. She asks what is he doing there. He tells her they have something to to talk about. He take a hold of her hands and drags her out.
She tells him to say whatever he has to say. He tells her that it is about their news. Did she released the news about them. She tells him he’s crazy. He knew that Jae Berd is the one that release it. He question if she has any hand in working along with Jae Berd. She says that’s crazy because the one that is ruin is going to be her since she’s the girl. He teases her that the one that is ruin should be him because she is the one that will benefit from the news. She says, benefit from what? He tells her of course since she’s in the news with a really famous pra’ek. HAH At his smiles. He tells her they have to prepare their answers for the reporters. She says just tell the truth that Jae Berd was the one who make up the story. He wouldn’t allow that because Jae Berd will scold the both of them. His answers to their problem is to tell the reporter they have only known each other for awhile and they are not that close. She adds that because they are still young and they have a lot of work so they want to focus on their work. They both agree before the media swarm them.
Reporter asks if they are together. Pimdao keeps stuttering and say no. Tripope cuts in to say they are not in a hurry. So, then reporter says so it means they are studying each other? Tripope answers yes with a nervous laugh. HAHA He changes the whole story. The way he goes about doing is funny.
At the office, Pe’Soo reads the news and says she hates people who loves to strut their boobs to make news. Pe’Tha then mock her and says yes he hates them too (meaning her). Tripope says it’s an accident and that the girl looks innocent. Pe’Soo says that innocent is just an image. Tripope then asks who is going to play the role of the little sister. Pe’Tha doesn’t know yet and as for Kaew, he just disappears after the script is completed.
At Kum Wiang Kao, Kaew listens to Yordlah plays the seung. Kaew compliments that Yordlah could play so soothingly. She tells him she used to be better. What news does he has to tell her? He says there isn’t any news yet. Yordlah tell hims that she is certain that they all will come and Pe’Thep will come with them. Kaew says Thep, who is his friend is Tripope. Yordlah says even though he is Kaew’s friend he is her Pe’Thep.
She wants to know more about Tripope. Kaew says she should know everything already. She says she doesn’t know everything because her power isn’t strong enough. She only knows that the true story she told Kaew will bring Pe’Thep back to her. Yordlah hears the crow crying to notify Yordlah that the drug dealers are back again. Por Lieng has these thieves to come. One of the guy think it isn’t haunted because they were the one who leaked this fake news. Pinky send her dead horse kill those two. But one of them got protected in time by Mahajamloy (Yordlah calls him Kru Babsy). Yordlah knew that it is Kru Babsy and says that this time she will be the winner. They cannot framed her as the bad one.
Mahajamloy later ask what kind of karma Yordlah is creating again.
Later, Yordlah asks for news again from Kaew. Kaew says no news yet. So, Yordlah yells at Kaew to go find a way to have Pe’Thep return to her.
Some kind of audition is going on. The girl so overact but everyone is buying into it. HAHA
Pimdao’s mom get mob, so Tripope comes in time to help. The mother takes him back home. When Pimdao comes back home to see a nice car infront of the house. She is annoy by it. She tells her sister and maid to help her with the bag but they’re both too smitten by Tripope to care. Pimdao complains that some rich guy parks their car infront of the house that she can’t park her car. After she’s done with her stuff and the car is still there she will go scratch the car to pieces.
Her mom drags her to the kitchen. Pimdao complains that her hand hurts. In the living room, Tripope is like, “hurt? Who hurt what?” The sister says some hot water probably spill on Pimdao. Her mother says why does she keep trying to find problem with him when he’s nice to help her mother? He’s a gentleman and is handsome. He’s not bad like how Pimdao described. Pimdao says he’s only acting. The mother says, then Pimdao needs to act nice to him for her mother. Pimdao says no way. So her mom pinch her and she screams that it hurt. Tripope says, “hurt again?” The sister’s excuse is the same and he buys it. At the dinner table the mother wants Pimdao to gives Tripope food and the only thing she spoons for him is vegetables. However, he just eat it and compliment that the mother is a good cook that she should teach her skill. The mother says that of course but Pimdao is the worse at cooking. The sister says even the eggs are burn.
After dinner, in the living room, Tripope asks the mother if she does meditate often. She says yes. She doesn’t believe that Tripope is interest in such things too. He says, he always has. Pimdao, who sits across from him says it’s a fake image he’s creating. He says he’s not faking an image. Meditating is good because it also helps their acting too. The mother says that it also helps with a lot of stuffs. Look at Pimduen’s grades, it improves so much after she starts practicing it. But Pimdao doesn’t do it because she doesn’t believes in these stuffs. Tripope looks outside and it is getting darker. He excuses himself and that he has impose for too long. Pimdao says at least he has the manner to know when to leave. The mother says it’s not a problem at all. He says to her that he’s just worry about his car because he’s not sure if he’s blocking anyone. He wouldn’t know if any handy person would come scratch, scratch, and scratch his car away. HAHA
Yordlah still doesn’t know where or see where Pimdao is. The two servants say that it will not be long when Luang Thep will return to Yordlah. Yordlah, however, also wants Dararai to return and repay what she has done. She will never forgive Dararai for breaking the promise.
Kaew, somehow, doesn’t want Tripope to come but Yordlah is too powerful for him to refuse. He apologizes to Tripope ahead of time. He really has no choice. He is stuck.
They have the fitting for the miniseries. Lindsay’s manager complains that the flower on her head is too small for a princess. Pe’Tha says they will add bigger for the important scene. During the photoshoot, the manager keeps wanting Tripope to get closer to Lindsay. Tripope says it is enough. HAH He doesn’t want to get too close.
What’s funny, the actress who plays the sister’s role is pregnant. So, now they have to find someone new. Tripope suggests Pimdao. Pimdao accepts it because she’s available. After reading the script, Pimdao thinks that the ending is strange.
The mother is meditating in the Buddha room but suddenly she sees an image of a woman playing the seung. Her mother comes in the room and ask why isn’t Dao asleep. Pimdao says she just finish reading a script. The mother thinks the title is strange. Dao tells that the story is about a girl in the north and a man in the south.

She plays the seung for her lover till her last breath. Her mother thinks back to what she saw and becomes worry. The mother asks if she’s playing the Jao Nang role. Pimdao says, “no why are you pretending to ask, of course I’m playing the little sister’s role.” The new nang’ek plays the role of the older sister. And who is the pra’ek? Her mother’s new boyfriend. Her mom says if it’s Tripope, then that’s good. Pimdao says that’s not good. If she doesn’t accept this drama then it’s because of Tripope.
Kaew is having the whole house renovated. The maid complains that they’re spending millions on renovating and it’sweird. The old man says that Kaew is probably investing in something.
The old man goes to see Mahajamloy (Kru Babsy). Mahajoy says the protection has been destroy thus Yordlah is able to come out. The old man asks what is really going on? What really happens? Mahajoy says it is an embarrassing story for the Wiang Kao house. He doesn’t really know the truth. Though, what he was taught is to protect the kum (protection). However, there is nothing that will stay lock forever. Yordlah’s power is getting stronger that she is able to destroy the protection of the house and comes out. They will just let nature takes its course and fix it accordingly. Just trust in the protection they have.
Tripope discusses with his friend about his dejavoo moment. He says he dreams about a woman who keeps calling him Pe’Thep and the words are the exact same in the script.
It goes back to the scene of Yordlah, Luang Thep and Dararai where Yordlah introduces Dararai as her sister. Luang Thep just stares at Dararai with love and longing. It tells you there is a story to this. Then flash to the present to Pimdao. Her sister comes in her room and Pimdao tells her about the dejavoo moment about a woman who keeps saying she will revenge and destroy her. Pimduen says that it sounds scary.
Another fitting day. Khun Bebe complains that the pra’ek and nang’ek are done with their costumes and makeup so why do they have to wait for the supporting casts? Pimdao comes out and says that Khun Bebe must have misunderstand something because she is also another nang’ek. She is ready than ever now. HAHA Funny, he doesn’t want to get close to Malarin but he force himself on Pimdao.
After the fitting, Pimdao asks Tripope why is she hearing news that she received this role because of him? He tells her to go ask the media if she wants to know. So, is he denying he has no input in this? He says no. She says, what does no means? He say it means he has a bit of an input. When the girl, May got pregnant he just suggest Pimdao’s name as someone that could play this role. She’s not happy to hear that it is really because of him though. He promise her he didn’t use any of his connections nor power to demand her for this role. She still doesn’t like this kind of news, she says. He tells her the only thing now that she has to do is prove herself capable for this role so people wouldn’t criticized her later on.
Outside the parking lot, he wants to send her to her car but she refuses. He drives his car near her and ask if she’s going to the temple on Saturday. She says she doesn’t like going to the temple. He teases her that does she burns when she enters the temple? LOL She says she just doesn’t like when people come to ask for pictures at the temple. He convinces her to go because it’s good before filming a lakorn. No one will chase after them for pictures. He text her after he drove off that he will see her on that day. She’s like who the heck give my number to him? Mom or Duen?
Yordlah is destroying the ancestor’s worship room. Kaew gets angry at Yordlah and ask her why she is doing this? She says is he not going to ask how she escapes from the small house to the big house? He says he knows she’s growing more powerful. If her power is strong then he wouldn’t be able to act high and mighty with her, she says. He question why she is doing this? She’s their ancestor. She says that she who has to be torture while her decedent is living happily over her head? She is the one being tormented under her decedent’s feet. He says at least this room also has her parents, her grandfathers and grandmothers and her ancestors. So, she shouldn’t look down on them. She says what Kaew said is true. Her parents gave birth to her, raised her and loved her more than anyone. However, all due to her sister who framed her which make everyone thinks she’s a viper and a killer. She became an embarrassment in Kum Wiang Kao. Even Pe’Thep left her due to Dararai’s black magic. She has to live with a torturous soul. Even when she died, they wouldn’t leave her alone and lock her in that house. She screams, “Father! Father! Why did you believe Dararai’s words? WHY?!” Boom, she destroys everything in that room.
At the temple, the monk asks if Pimdao and Tripope are a married couple. Pimdao says no and doesn’t know what to call the monk as prah khun jao or attama. LOL The mother says he’s a friend of her daugther. Duen says, but he’s close like a son or son-in-law. Pimdao’s like aish what are they saying? lol The monk says that everything is like a circle that goes around. Who knows maybe in the past, Tripope and the mother may have been mother and son. The mother says that, that is a good thing to hear. Pimdao couldn’t sit still so the monk calls her out on it. She says she’s just worry about the fish. So, she tells her sister to go with her but Duen refuses and ask Tripope to go instead.
After letting the fish out to the river. Tripope notices that she likes doing merit with kids or orphanage or with fish but not with Buddhas. She tells him that many people already worship Buddhas but no many will do with the less fortunate. It’s not that she doesn’t believes in Buddhas anymore due to their many tarnish reputation in the news. He says but people believe they receive more good deeds by doing merit with monks. She says if you do something and wish something in return, that’s greed and it’s bad karma too.
Inside the temple, the mother tells the monk what she saw while she was meditating. She’s suspicious that the woman she saw is vengeful towards Dao. She doesn’t want her daughter to go to the north but she doesn’t want Dao to miss her work. However, on the other hand she also thinks that whatever happens will happen. The monk agrees that you can’t stop what will happen. The monk gives Pimdao something for protection.
