Recap Epis 1: Hua Jai Tuen
I feel like this episode is full of information but not really. A lot of things are repeated. They keep talking about Pak too much but yet they also lack of information. If he left 15 years ago, meaning he left when he was 15? This is considering if he is currently 30. So, how did Chalinee claimed to be in love with him? Or does he really loved this girl that he even feels vengeful towards Pakorn? I think they can cease to talk about Pak returning or not returning and let’s hopefully move to the real fun stuff.
i wish they have better songs for this lakorn. I’m not too sure if I like the camera technique they’re doing.
Episode 1: Recap
A man narrates that horses are being thus have a heart. They also have moods and emotions like their rider. When you ride on the horse, your moods and emotions are transmit to the horse. If you’re happy, they will be happy. If you use anger towards them, they will repay the same back. When they are good to you, pat and talk to them well and give them support. That way you will be happy riding the horse.
A group of friends practice riding horses. They are Wachari, Amawasi, Nilrit and Peungjai. Wachari suggests that that they should go out and do something fun. One of them question if that is a good idea. The girl who suggest reassures that it is good. There is a handsome cowboy who practices horse riding somewhere in the back of the mountain. If they’re lucky, they will meet him and ask to ride with him. Peung reserve her place first.
As they rode the horse, some of the girls are too slow for Wachari, so as they come to a stop, Wachari chided them for being too slow. One says she’s not racing for the Olympic. Another says she’s on her period. Wachari reminded them they are here for the cowboy.
However, unluckily a storm is raging so they have to turn back. Wachari suggest to go separate way and race who is the first to get back. On the way back, Amawasi is struggling with her horse yelling for help. So, Rach, the man spying on her is trying to help. He tells her to sit still and let go of the horse. She won’t let go afraid she will fall off the horse. However, he is able to get her off and tame the horse. She screams she’s not use to sitting that position he put her in and he tells her she will get use to it. She’s also annoying to him since she keeps complaining.
As they stop, he put her hat back on her and that is when she is able to look at his eyes and mistake him for her Pe’Pak. He lectures her that not only she doesn’t thank him, she calls something he doesn’t know. Which Pak (could mean “episode” in English) is him? Episode 1 or 2? In a nice voice, she says “if you’re not Pe’Pak, you can still speak nicely to me.” But his retorts back is “How am I not speaking nicely? I spoke nice and done good thing. But you’re the one who is talking nonesense.” He puts her back on her horse and tells her she can ride home. The horse is tamed. He continues to criticize her not to ride the horse like that again. It’s dangerous and he can’t help her next time. Other than that he also tells her that she shouldn’t put herself out there for men like that because they might think something else. Most men don’t think in a good way too.
On this raining day, Chob is talking business with Kawee, a former prime minister. Chob informs Kawee that there is a movement in his company. That the executives and shareholders look like they want to change line product for drinking water. The executives and shareholders feel that drinking water will bring in more profit than supplemented food and printed matter they currently are doing. Kawee says that he will decide when they have a board meeting but Chob informs Kawee won’t have enough power to make decision. In that case Kawee has to buy more shares. Kawee says he will decides later and for Chob to find out how much it costs. Chob also informs that someone is looking to buy Baan Kaew. Kawee is surprise that anyone would want to buy an old house. Chob says that close to 25 million baht that they offered and Kawee can use that money to buy his shares without taking money out of his pocket. Kawee with a sigh says he has to talk to Khun Ying first because there is a lot of history with that house.
At the Pitchipong house, Apa is paying respect to her ancestors and lighting up incense. Amawasi comes with intention to pay her respect as well. Khun Ying asks how is Amawasi’s horseback riding? Amawasi says it is fun but it’s tiring. All of a sudden Apa reminisce about Pak and says, “Pe’ Pak also likes riding horse a lot”. But Amawasi has no answer to that, so Apa continues that if Pak is still here he will be a good teacher for Amawasi. A servant informs Apa that Kawee wants to speak to her.
Kawee explains the situation to Apa but she refuse to sell the house. Baan Kaew is the only thing that is left by her mom for Pak. The house is waiting for Pak to return. If they sell it where will Pak live when he returns? Kawee unimpressed tells her that it’s been 15 years and she’s still dreaming he will be back? She says it’s not their right to sell it. Kawee not happy with the conversations yells at her that they can’t sell it but they have to spend money cleaning it? He has no money to clean that house. He tells her to put up some incense for her mom and tell her mom that he can’t afford to take care of the house.
On the same night, Amawasi thinks back to the man who helped her while Pring talks with Amawasi about Apa mentioning Pak. She also says that lately Apa has been thinking about Pak. Amawasi says she feel the same way. Pring says that if one day Pak knows how Apa wants him back he will return to them unless…. Amawasi quickly interrupt that nothing will happen to Pak. He is well protected. The lady says in sadness that they wouldn’t have to ask for protection from god if she was home that day. This make Amwasi think about 15 years ago.
15 years ago, in a raining day Rach runs around looking for everyone in the house, calling his nanny and Amawasi. Amawasi is hiding, crying and looking at him. Young Rach though is disappointed that everyone left him. He calls out that he is leaving now. He is not living there anymore. Amawasi cries in her corner while watching Rach leave.
Back to present, Amawasi asks Pring if she ever feels dazzle that she sees someone like Pe’Pak. Pring asks if Amawasi saw? But Amwasi did not answer the question.
At the same time Rach is at his house looking at his computer and files full of Pitchipong family. He looks at a video clip of Pakorn with hatred. And in his face is with plans and secrets.
The next morning Pakorn wakes up in a bed with a girl. All night he has been partying so he’s in a hurry to go back home. When he returns home he sees Amawasi. He wants to take her to school but she refuse. His dad chided him for going out too much. Kawee tells Pakorn that if Pakorn is out raising votes for him he wouldn’t say anything. Pakorn gives an excuse that he’s selling insurance so in a way that is him helping his dad. Kawee disbelieve that Pakorn is selling insurance this late and smelling alcohol too? Pakorn says that Kawee is the one who introduce him to the company. Kawee says he can put Pakorn in there and can also take him out. Pakorn pleas that as a father, he should pity a widow like his son.
Seeprai happy to see Pakorn who is the one driving the car. Pakorn asks why is Seeprai is there early in the morning. Seeprai says that she comes with her dad. But why is she standing there? Pakorn wants to know. She shamelessly told him that perhaps she will see Pakorn. Pakorn says he also wants to see her and she should ask her dad’s permission because he wants to take her out to eat.
One of Rach’s man takes pictures of the Kaew house and asking the gardener if the owner wants to sell it. The gardener doesn’t know but gave the number so they can contact the owner.
At school, Amawasi and her friends are having a dance practice. All of a sudden a camera comes in filming them. The girls are unhappy because they didn’t give permission. Their teacher comes in to tell them she gave permission. A woman name Chidchamai says that it is for a commercial casting. She wants to invite them for an audition. The girls want to know how much they get pay. Before answering how much they get pay, first they need to be interview.
One of the questions is “what is their ideal man? Like their father, friend, or a brother or anyone that is not similar to others?” Peung says she won’t choose. Nilrit says she would choose someone who truly loves her. Wachari chooses someone like her father. As for Amawasi, everyone teases her that it has to be like her brother Pe’Pakkkkk.
Kawee turns the tv off as he hears Pak’s name. His lawyer comes in informing him someone offered 30 million baht to buy the Kaew House. Someone by the name Rach Ratchapong. Kawee wants to delay selling the house but the lawyer wants to know as soon as possible as it is a good profit. However, Kawee doesn’t want to have problem with Apa. So if the lawyer doesn’t want problem with him, the lawyer shouldn’t say more.
At one of the office near the beach, Raklae’s nephew demanding 300, 000. The argument gets intense as the nephew won’t back down and so does Uncle Rak. Jon angry that he is being treated unfairly when he is the real nephew. Rak says that because Rach is a diligent worker, not a gambler and a drug addict. Rach also helps him work. Jon disbelieve that Rak could speak like that to him ever since his auntie died. Rak retorts that even if his wife is alive, he still speaks that way to Jon. As Rak refuse to give Jon money, Jon threatens to get physical. Rak is not afraid as he fight back. However, as the fight escalate, Rach comes to help Rak in time. Rak let Jon go because afterall Jon is his dead wife’s nephew. Jon threatens to come back.
Rach feels bad that his uncle looks tired as he hasn’t been home to help. Rak only admits to being exhausted because of the fight. Rach didn’t think Jon would dare to stab Rak. And ask his uncle to be careful. Rach got into business talk about his detail plan. Rak says he saw them all. Rach wants his uncle’s opinion. His uncle asks which is it? The house or the people? Rach asks if the Kaew house is worth the investment? Rak thinks Rach offers a very high price for the house but as for whether it is worth it, it’s up to one’s heart. This much money, he can support Rach if it makes Rach happy. Rach says he’s afraid they will sell to someone else first. As for the people, Rach has to be careful and only do it sufficiently. He shouldn’t allow it to get further that it becomes karma. It is going to be his karma and no one else. Rach says he has no choice. Rak says everyone has a choice so he shouldn’t say he doesn’t have one. It’s just up to him what he chooses.
Pakorn visits his mother-in-law and Mother-in-law is happy that her son-in-law is still visiting her. At the same time Chidchamai and her father visits them at the same time. Pakorn surprise that he is seeing a replica of his own dead wife. But he is corrected that Chidchamai is only first cousin of Chalinee. After Pakorn left, the mother-in-law says that Pakorn is a player and that is the reason why Chalinee passed away.
Rach thinks about the past and how no one loves Pak. Even his mother and father hate him like he isn’t their son.
Rach shows a picture of Pakorn who steals everything from Pak to his uncle. Pakorn uses his father’s power to steal everything and claim that Pak isn’t a real son. Rak asks if this is the reason why Rach wants to steal everything Pakorn loves? Rach wants to teach Pakorn a lesson how it feels to lose everything he loves. Rak asks the reason for buying Baan Kaew. Rach explains that this house is Pak’s sanctuary. The only place that he can depends on. It shoudnt be in the hand of the Pitchipong family… Also he might includes the Pitchipong house as well so they can have a taste of their own medicine. As for Amawasi, Pakorn might want her. His uncle’s only pleas is for Rach not to do anything illegal and don’t use his hatred to hurt the people that love him. Rach refuse to believe anyone really love Pak.
During the night, Amawasi stares at a young boy’s picture. Pring asks if it’s Pak’s photo. Pring sighs and says that this is probably the only picture of Pak in the Pitchipong house. Amawasi asks if Kawee will destroy it if he sees it. Pring thinks that he might not now since he’s a lot more tamed but if it’s 10 years ago, he would have done it. To be on the safe side, it’s better he doesn’t sees it. Amawasi doesn’t understand her uncle treating Pak like he isn’t his child. Pring seems to know but only says that only him will know why he treats Pak that way. Amawasi wonders if they can remember Pak if they sees him again. Pring says maybe far away it’s hard to tell but if close up, she will remember because he has eyes unlike anyone. Amawasi seems to be in the same boat as Pring.
Amawasi thinks back to the time Pak was crying. Young Amawasi ask why Pak is crying. Pak says one day he will leave here and he’s a man so he won’t starve to death. Pak asks if Amawasi will go with him? But he didn’t wait for an answer but tells her he will come back to hear her answer. After Pak left, Pakorn comes in being a meanie and tells her not to call him Pe’Pakorn. She has to call him Khun Pakorn. He says that if Amawasi goes with Pak, he will tattle his father and she will get beat up.
Amawasi couldn’t sleep after talking to Pring so she google on Pak and flash back to Rach which makes her miss Pak even more.
Pakorn meets with Seeprai secretly. Seeprai lies to her father that she’s going out with friends. But at the end her father caught her in a lie. He barge into their hotel room and lectures her. He is disappointed in her. As for Pakorn, he seems not to care one way or another. Her father asks what Pakorn thinks of his daughter. Pakorn’s answer is “that is hard to answer. Her father mad that Pakorn is only using her daughter and after some vocal disagreement, the father shows a chip that he has a video of them. Pakorn has to pay 8 million or else he will leak it out. He is not demanding the money now as long as Pakorn doesn’t dump his daughter but if Pakorn does then he will have to pay up.
At his office, Rach tells Tenya to hurry up and get the house settle. He’s afraid someone will buy it first. They offer 35 million this time and his uncle gives him permission already. Tenya’s son tells Rach that a girl came to see him. She’s so pretty. And she also asks if he’s married yet. Rach asks for her name. So Rach call Chidchamai and they talk about usual stuff about how much has Rach change in the months she didn’t see him. He says he didn’t change much and he do love his single life the most. She warns he will be old and lonely if he doesn’t change his taste. She asks him to pick her up in the morning to see some girls dance. He’s okay with it but as long as it’s not babysitting.
At Pitchipong house, Kawee asks for a private talk with Apa. Kawee says she knows what he wants to talk about. He explains that selling the house will give them money to buy shares. They don’t have to take money out of their pocket. Apa asks why didn’t he sell his lands? He says those brings him profit but not the Baan Kaew. Since someone wants to buy it with that high of a price, they have to hurry up and sell it. She retorts back if she ever agree they’re going to sell it. Instead of eating, Apa walks away.
Pakorn comes saying that suppose that if he needs 8 million, will his father gives it to him? His father then says if supposedly he kicks Pakorn in the butt, would that hurt? Pakorn in a baby frown says of course it would hurt. Disappointed, Pakorn didn’t tell his concern.
Apa sits thinking alone while Amawasi comes to asks if Apa is hungry. Apa says she has no apetite. She asks if Amawasi ever think about Pak? And if he will ever comes back? Amawasi says yes. Apa prays every night for his safety and for one day he would return. Apa asks if she dreams too high. Amawasi agrees that she thought of the same thing. Apa wishes that Pak will return before… Before… She didn’t finish before what but tells Amawasi to go do what she has to do.
Apa thinks about the time she treated Pak so bad. Pakorn plays a prank on Pak. Pakorn calls Pak a bastard. When Pak fights back, she yells at Pak and tell him to go away. Pak asks in a pitiful voice where would he go? His mom tells him to go to Baan Kaew and calls him a bastard as well.
At the commercial studio, Amawasi and her friends were casting. Rach and Chidchamai arrives. Rach seems happy to see Amawasi. His friends call him Yak and so her friends start playing with that name as well. In the locker room, they ask what Rach says to Wachari. She lied to them that he asked her out to eat. But she gives in and finally says he only tells her he knows her brother too. Rach overhears the conversation and corrected them that his name isn’t Yak. But he would like to ask them to eat with him. Amawasi decline as she has plan already.
Pakorn visits Seeprai at her slum. Seeprai assures Pakorn that her father doesn’t want the money. Her father is afraid Pakorn will leave her hanging that’s why he demands for 8 million. Pakorn says he didn’t leave. He is here. The two agree to see each other every 3 night when her father works overnight.
At night in a restaurant, Rach sits with his two friends. Anu says that Rach should have invited the girls to come and that he should consult them too. Karn smiles and says the only one he wants is Peung. Anu says he want the sexy one. So Rach and Karn tease that there are two sexy one. Anu reserve Nilrit for himself and Wachari can be Rach’s. Karn says Rach’s girl is over there, meaning Chidchamai. Chidchamai comes to sit in the empty seat after cooking. The guys talk how they want to taste her food as she offers to enter the kitchen herself. She tells them to ask Rach first if next time they want her food. Anu and Karn want to know how Rach and Chidchamai met each other. Chidchamai explains that 2 years ago in Milan, Rach asks her to be his model for his project. He hasn’t even pay her yet. He teases that’s the reason he quickly return to Thailand. Everyone laugh at the joke. Chidchamai says that is why she has to follow him back for it.
In the car Chidchamai says they haven’t rode together for 5 months now. He asks if she rides with someone else. She hasn’t as she wants to try something differen though… Such as play sports, raise a dog or work in a company. But things are not fun without him. Chidchamai receives a phone call from her dad about Pakorn asking her out on a date. But she says she already has her own Prince. Chidchamai explains the situation to Rach and he goes quiet.
Pakorn visits Chob at the office because he needs to consult someone regarding getting blackmail. Chob suggests that if it’s true then paying is the best method but they need to make sure all evidence is rid of. Chob also suggest that if Pakorn wants money, he can convince his dad to sell Baan Kaew as someone really wants to buy it.
Pakorn and Kawee on the same team want to sell the house. Apa is stubborn. She has too many memories in that house. It’s memories of her mother and father. It’s a house she grew up in. When she dies she wants to die there. But Kawee retorts that she never visits the house. She says there are things she doesn’t want to remember. Plus, the house is not theirs to give away. Pak will return and live in it. Kawee disagree because does she really think he will return? It’s been too long. Even if he returns, he is not welcome. At the end she gives up as she said the past has hurt her a lot so she can’t piece it back together. So whatever he wants to do, just do it. She will pray to her mother to give him the right to sell it. Apa walks out in tears.
At the dinner table, only Amawasi and Pakorn is there. Pakorn question why Amwasi always look sullen when she sees him. She says that’s her normal face. He says, not only doesn’t she smile at him, she’s also sarcastic too. She only answers his questions honestly as he ask, she states. He wants to know why she doesn’t call him Pe’Pakorn. She reminded him that it was his idea when they were young for her to call him Khun Pakorn. She asks back if he forgot about it because she hasn’t. She doesn’t hate him but respect him as an older brother. What about Pak? Pakorn wants to know. Pakorn’s like the name can’t be brought up at all as she always have that face on her when Pak’s name is mention. What’s so good about Pak? What does Pak has that is better? Amawasi says that Pakorn wouldn’t like the answer if she tells him. He knows that everything for her is Pe’Pak and if Pak is still alive, Pak and her probably become…. Amawasi interrupts Pakorn that Pe’Pak is still alive. One day Pe’Pak will return. Pakorn tells her even if he returns, he will have no place to stay as they’re selling the house. It will no longer be Baan Kaew but it will be Baan Rach like its owner Rach Ratchapong.
Pring hears of the news and cry out loud. She feels bad for Pak if he ever returns. She still remembers the day the grandma calls for Pak till her last breath. She will the house to Pak so that he will have a place to stay when he returns. The house is Pak’s right, not anyone else. Amawasi thinks that her uncle sells the house because he doesn’t think Pak will return. Pring knowingly feels anger towards Kawee says that, “he doesn’t think or he doesn’t want Pak to return”. Amawasi could feel the anger so asks what is really going on? Pring evades the question and says she just miss Pak too much that she talks nonesense. In Amawasi’s thinking, her uncle doesn’t favor Pak like Pakorn, that’s probably the reason he doesn’t want Pak to return.
Pring thinks to the past when Pak pleas to know who his parents are. If his parents are Kawee and Apa, why didn’t he has the same right as his little brother? Why does he has to call Pakorn, Khun Pakorn? He doesn’t believe Pring. He hugs Prong and wishes he is Pring’s son so he wouldn’t be in pain like now. He will someday find out who his real parents are but that time he will not be living here. He asks Pring to take care of Baan Kaew for him and don’t allow anyone to take anything from it. All the nanny can do is sigh and hope that one day Pak will return to meet with his grandma again even though it’s just a spirit. Amawasi agrees with Pring. Pring prays that the new owner will take good care of the house.
The next day is the 2nd year anniversary of Chalinee’s passing. Her family and extended family come to pay their respect. Chalinee’s mother regret that she didn’t allow her daughter to choose who she loves. She wish that she can do everything all over again where Chalinee wouldn’t married based on her judgment. To this day, all she can do is pray for Chalinee to be happy where she is now.
Seeprai’s father confronts Pakorn again if Pakorn visits Seeprai. Seeprai’s father wants to know how sincere Pakorn is. Pakorn still can’t give an answer so the father threatens that if that day comes, Pakorn have to pay that 8 million baht. Pakorn accuses him of selling his own daughter for money. The father says he is selling Pakorn’s family name not his daughter’s and will Pakorn buys it?
Afterwards Pakorn arrives at the temple but everyone is about to leave. He asks to treat everyone out but Chidchamai decline as she has business to do.
At the horse ranch Rach tells Wachari that if he knews she come here for horseback riding, he would have come earlier. At the back we can see Amawasi annoy at him haha. Rach asks if the girls are leaving yet. He will give them a ride. Wachari can call her father not to worry because her dad knows him.
Goodness, the car is so small, Amawasi basically sitting on Wachari’s lap. Lol They talk about Wachari’s brother coming back to Thailand. There is going to be a welcoming party. Wachari says it’s a surprise so Rach shouldn’t notify the chicken beforehand. Wachari asks Rach to come because there will be dancing too. She praises that Amasawi is really good. Rach dropped Wachari off and offer to take Amasawi too. He’s going to pass by anyway. He knows the prime minister’s house because he pass there before. Wachari says she told him Amawasi is related to the former prime minister and force her in.
Rach opens his convertible hood in case Amawasi feels uncomfortable. During the ride, he asks if his car is uncomfortable? She’s so quiet. She says there is nothing to talk about. He meanly tells her it must be hard not to get attention. She disagrees because she likes her solitude. She wants to think alone. He observed that she’s a person who thinks a lot. She retorts sweetly that it’s better than being a person who doesn’t know how to think. He asks who teaches her how to dance. She says he won’t know even if she tells. He purposely asks if it’s Pakorn. Or it could be her uncle Kawee. Those are the only two that like dancing and it couldn’t be Khun Ying because she doesn’t like going to parties. He notice that she looks confuse that he knew everyone in her family and asks if it’s weird he correctly name everyone in her family? She feels weird that he has to investigate the family he’s buying a house from? So he repeated she knows about him buying the house too? Amawasi knows that he also offered for the house at a very high price and gives several reasons as to why. 1. He probably wants to buy it and renovate it then resell it for a higher price. 2. He’s doing illegal trade and wants a place to hide money. 3. Or he could be someone who has connection to the house.
He applauds her for sprouting out a lot of nonsenses. He explains the reason he bought the house because he likes antiques stuffs. He collects them. With the house, it’s already worth a lot if he just rent for filming movies, lakorn and commercial.
