Recap Epis 1: Roy Fun Tawan Duerd
Okay, I’m going to recap this part of series with Nadech and Yaya. I’m just going to summarize the last episode of Roy Ruk Hak Liam Tawan. I’m doing the last episode by memory so it may failed me. So, pardon me.
In the last episode of Roy Ruk Hak Liam Tawan, they were preparing for the big battle with the Mitsawa and Sato. Mitsawa wants to revenge for Satoshi. Kenichi wants to kill the Onitsuka clan. Seiko gave an ultimatum to Takeshi about living in his world. She doesn’t want this anymore. She wants to live a normal life with her husband and kids. She’s too coward and selfish that she doesn’t want to be Okamisan. She doesn’t care about honor or pride. She wants her own life. She doesn’t want to keep worrying about her husband’s life. She doesn’t want to lose him. So, this episode Seiko found out she’s pregnant and then get kidnapped by Kenichi. He kinds of torture her and knowing she has a baby purposely kill the baby as well.
Taro’s fault for not guarding securely. His mistakes. Takeshi knows the news and tries to go save Seiko. They have this big plan which failed to complete as they all got ambush. The plantation exploded. Taro sacrificed his life for Takeshi’s. Takeshi saved Seiko and faked his own death. Everyone thought he was dead.
Ryu, had to overtake Takeshi’s place as the 20th soreal for the Onitsuka clan. Ryu learned from Takesehi that love is a weakness. He decided to end everything with Mayumi. He wanted her to find her own heart. Heartbroken, Mayumi threw the necklace Ryu bought for her on the ground.
In Thailand, Takeshi found Seiko at some kind of farm that Takeshi dreamed of having. Four years later, they have two kids. Ryu went vacationing in Thailand and Koji took Ryu to see Takeshi. They didn’t have any conversation but understand through their eyes. Takeshi chosen his life as a normal person, so Ryu respected that.
Honestly, I did not finish the first part because it was really boring for me. Their development was too fast or basically there weren’t any development at all. I don’t get how bam bam they love each other and then cannot live without each other. Takeshi was selfish because he chose one girl over his whole clan. Seiko was selfish because if she didn’t want to live the life Takeshi leads, she should have out herself from the beginning. It wasn’t a secret who he is. Yet, at the end, she can give him up after putting everyone through shiet. For me, their characters were dislikeable and too weak.
The whole story was weak too. I didn’t have high expectation for this second part because it’s from the same writer, production and director? If the first part is a failure, would it help the second part?
I actually like the first episode of Roy Fun Tawan Duerd. It looks like it has more meat and substance. Since Ryu and Mayumi has a story from the first part, they have a chance for better development. There is a lot more baddies in here but I think everything will fall through. So, there will be an equal amount of romance and actions.
We open to the present time 7 years later after Takeshi’s fake death. A lot of sacrifices leads to a peaceful city. Love has to become just attachment. But never forgetting.
Ryu and Mayumi meets under the sakura tree after 7 years. Both smile at each other. Ryu holds on to Mayumi’s hand and took the umbrella away. It has been 7 years that Ryu has been living in nightmare that he has lost her. Mayumi reciprocate his thought because they share the same pain. He tenderly holds her and says that at least they understands each other now. They are finally back together. He thanks her for loving him and always staying by his side. She says the reason she is still here is because of love and the attention he gives her. It’s almost time for their wedding, Ryu promises to love and takes care of her and she promises to love and be loyal to him. Ryu kiss her forehead in happiness.
Ryu sends Mayumi home and offers to wait for her to go inside but she refuses because he might be late for work. Mayumi sees an assassin behind trying to kill Ryu so she took the bullet. Ryu turns around and kills the assassin in two shot (perhaps lol). Ryu wants to take Mayumi to the hospital but she says it’s too late. She is no longer his fiance. He is just a trace of dream that she tries to forget. She says her goodbye as they might not be able to see each other again. His life will no longer have a girl name Mayumi. Ryu calls for Mayumi and screams NOOOOOOOOOOO as she passes away.
lol Turns out it’s just a nightmare for Ryu since he misses Mayumi so much. It is 7 years afterall. A call from Koji for Ryu, as they call him now Soreal. Ryu asks for an update of what’s going on in town. Koji informs Ryu that Mitsawa and Muira is having problem again. Mitsawa is angry that Muira stoles all their clients, so they send their minions to create chaos at the nightclub. When Osamu (the chief police) and the police arrive, everything was peaceful. Ryu says that it is only peaceful for a short period of time because Takao will never allow anyone who steals his interest away easily. Kazuma agrees with Ryu because Takao has this inferiority complex when he was young due to Riki loving Satoshi more than him. Takao is just the son of a mistress. Now, they’re all worry because Takao might be crazier than his father.
At the Mitsawa household, Takao has his bodyguards hang his father and brother’s portrait in the highest and best place. Even if he hates his father who praises Satoshi more, he wants the best place for them to see how successful and powerful he’s become. It is all through his hardwork. He wants his father to continues to look at how good he, the son of a mistress is better than Satoshi.
After checking the plantation site, Ryu, Koji, Kazuma and Masato walks together still talking about Takao. They talk how successful Takao has been after Riki’s failed business. Ryu is still underestimating Takao since Takao is pretty new to this business. Ryu thinks that someone bigger is behind Takao’s success. Plus, Haru Muira has become so successful in real estate after leaving his business in selling illegal military weapon makes Takao even angrier.
This scene introduces Haru punishing a person who betrays him even if it’s only stealing. He wouldn’t leave it to chance that this person will betray him a second time. There is no mercy.
Looking out into the sunset, Ryu and his three elders worry that their city will no longer be peaceful. A big storm is going to come. It’s hard for Osamu to work because someone higher is trying to stop him too. It’s probably because Yamamoto is blocking Onitsuka at every angle.
Osama informs his peers that Mitsawa and Muira is getting danger because of their competitiveness in business. There has been an increase of fight. Masaru disagress with Osamu. Masaru thinks that the new rising group isn’t as scary as Onitsuka. Osamu explains that Onitsuka clans are good people as they always work along with the police. Masaru says that it’s the polices’ job to protect the city not Onitsuka. Masaru sarcastically asks in a calm voice if Onitsuka is working with the legal force or just with Osamu? Hiro could feel the tension in the room. Another person agrees that after the battle 7 years ago with Onitsuka, Mitsawa and Sato, the higher up is thinking that Onitsuka is going to be dangerous. Masaru directly informs Osamu that even if he pass the committees’ interrogation, they continue to watch him.
Hiro didn’t like that Masaru is trying to target them directly in the room. Osamau doesn’t want to think much as they were all in the same school and did not like each other even then. They were all competitive. Hiro is worries that Osamu will have a hard time passing the committees’ eyes. Osama explains to Hiro that he doesn’t care about anything else other than doing his duty to protect the innocent citizens from the baddies. Hiro thinks that if everyone is like Osamu, civilians will be warm and protected. Osamu thinks that someday someone will see it. Hiro wishes that the evidence weren’t burnt because they could have caught Yamamoto already. Osamu worries about Onitsuka as the bad guy is still roaming the street and wants to warn them ahead of time.
Osama heads to Onitsuka but gets ambush undergound by two assassins. They have a shooting battle, one on two. It doesn’t look like he will escape because he is sandwich between two bad guys. Good thing that Yuji arrives in time to help coincidentally. They have a few shoot out but at the end Osamu still get shot as well as Yuji. One assassin got away.
At the hospital, Mayumi recognizes Osamu and is shocked to see him being unconscious. As they have two patients getting shot, Mayumi perform Yuji’s surgery and her teacher does Osamu. Yuji is saved but Osamu lost too much blood that they cannot save him. This makes Mayumi sad as she knows Osamu since she was young. It’s hard to think someone you know for so long passed away. Hiro has to receive the bad news from Mayumi that they cannot help Osamau.
All Ryu and his elders do is talk and talk. OMG. ahhaha Since Osamu passed away, Onitsuka has to worry about their safety and everyone else. They talk how Osamu was ambush and got shot… however, a good thing Koji is saved. They explained Koji as the son of Masaru Kobayashi. Ryu is so freaken serious and stress that he’s forming stress line between his brows lol… it’s because he doesn’t know who is behind all this.
At Yamamoto’s office, he laughs how it’s one last person to get rid off. Since Osamu is cross out from his list, it’s easier to destroy warriors like Onitsuka. Of course, this bad guy has an alligator as a pet! What a creep.
Mayumi done with her shift walks to pray at a shrine. Ryu is her number one stalker… they make it so dramatic like some baddie was after her. HAHAH. He follows her all the way to the train station but lost her there. Ryu comes back to his bodyguards calling him a stalker for secretly taking photos of Mayumi. Ryu asks if either of them wants something to cover their free mouth. They don’t seem to be afraid of him as they continue to tell him that him following her for 7 years he has to tell her. Ryu doesn’t think there is any advantage if she knows. Of course, they disagree because girls like when a guy is attentive to them and if Mayumi knows, she will be happy. Ryu disagrees because he doesn’t want anything in return as he’s happy doing what he is doing.
Returning home, Koji asks if soreal is really happy doing that only? Ryu retorts if he doesn’t look happy. Koji thinks that Mayumi graduated with her PhD already, so Soreal should give a wedding date. Ryu gives a big sigh saying that every girls that are close to Onitsuka will be in dangers. They all see it 7 years ago. A food for thought Koji gives to Ryu is that people may thinks that true love is to sacrifice but if it pains the one you love then it might not be true love. Koji asks again if that is what Mayumi wants. Ryu gets even more confuse and even more depress.
Mayumi returns home with her sister purposely reading the newspaper about Ryu and his business. She praises how talented her future brother-in-law is. But also purposely teases Mayumi with the tabloid that Ryu is dating the number one actress now probably due to Mayumi breaking his heart.
Mayumi’s parents tell her they heard the news about Osamu. They are glad she become a doctor so she can be helpful. Ryu was the one who asked them to allow her to study medical school. Mayumi didn’t want to hear anything about Ryu so she excuse herself, pretending she’s lightheaded. In Mayumi’s room she’s reminded of the time she’s fixing the koto for Ryu. She didn’t know that Ryu also plays the koto. He teases her that he does but she doesn’t know him enough since they don’t live together. He jokes if she wants to try to live with him to understand him more?
These two are so lonely. They keep thinking about each other but they’re so stubborn for their own reason. Ryu for her safety and her for her pride and dignity.
Ryu practices kendo with Katsu and Seigi but doesn’t have the concentration he needs. He gets lecture by Koji because kendo is not use for a physical thing but for strength and concentration. Ryu realizes his wrongdoing apologizes for his lack of concentration. On the side Katsu and Seigi complain about their injuries from Ryu’s practices. They’re going to endure for a little while because the new bodyguard is going to arrive soon. Ryu is a bit annoy. lol
Mayumi explains Yuji’s symptom after surgery. He might be confuse, nauseous, and lightheaded. He may also feel pains but after resting he should feel better. Yuji thanks Mayumi. Before Mayumi left, Yuji seems to remember that they might have met somewhere. He inquires Mayumi where they might have met. Mayumi upon reminder thought of the time Yuji helps her and get cut in part one. The hero. The gentleman. Yuji asks to take her out for lunch after he recovers. She thanks and left.
Mayumi’s friend asks if she reads about Ryu Onitsuka’s new girl. Mayumi acts like she doesn’t care because she is only what the elders promise for Ryu. Even trying to avoid the news, Mayumi still hears it in the bathroom when two other girls start talking about Ryu. One girl says that Ryu is a player but stops being one because of this actress. One says dreamily that how many time she has to be reborn to meet a guy who is sincere at love like Ryu. This hurt Mayumi because she loves him! Poor Mayumi have to keep hearing all these rumors about him. They won’t even allow her to recover from Ryu’s rejection. Mayumi talks to herself but asks Ryu, “When will I be able to get rid of you from my heart?”
At a charity event, Ryu looks bored because obviously, he doesn’t know why he is even there. LOL. He has to applaud because he doesn’t want to be rude. He doesn’t want to be there but he has to be. Koji asks Ryu to look a little happy as he is the head of this chairty. lol. When it comes to the highlight of the show, Akiko Kudo walking on stage, Kazuma says that Akiko has a good status that matches Ryu. Koji confirms though that Soreal already have a woman in his heart. Ryu just smile halfheartedly. Ryu has to be the representative to give the flowers to Akiko as thank you gesture. However, Akiko daring she is, kiss him on stage! Ryu isn’t impress with this move of her. He didn’t say anything because he is a gentleman but his expression says otherwise. ANNOY!
Reporters want to know if today they are going public with their relationship. Ryu refuses to answer anything because today is about the charity. His bodyguards stop the interview because they are ready to leave. Randomly, someone just tries to kill Ryu at a public place? Makes no sense but okay. lol. This enters Taichi, Soreal’s new bodyguard. He apologizes for allowing this bad guy to even try to hurt soreal. Ryu think Taichi did well but do not use weapon in public places so people wouldn’t accuse them of being powerful than the law.
This girl doesn’t know that Ryu is annoy! Ryu tells her that her manners on stage is inappropriate for her status. He doesn’t think that a number one actress like her should do that on stage. Akiko doesn’t think much of a peck on his cheek because he’s helped her from worse situation. In the past, Ryu helped her from getting raped from a so call producer. Ryu protects his own people because Akiko’s dad is a sharedholder at his company. He considers her a family too. But Akiko thinks that Ryu is the only one who takes care of her without wanting anything in return. Ryu’s only job is to take care of Onitsuka, Ryu reaffirms.
Taichi comes to inform Ryu that the car is ready. There seems a history between Taichi and Akiko. Ryu sends Akiko home. Ryu doesn’t think it’s a big deal because Akiko does the charity without getting pay. Plus, uncle Daiki is a good person helping his family too. Akiko did her duty as the perfect daughter (unlike Aiko in part one lol). Ryu praises Akiko’s tea talent and of course she has to go on and on about how she has to be prepared to be a good wife to her husband. Ryu’s face says a million thing. Her father is embarrassed.
Daiki lectures her daughter not to put herself as an equal to Ryu. Akiko without shame and because she’s delusional think Ryu and her love each other, so, how can they not be close to each other? Her father tells her Ryu never says they are. She should not assumes. Akiko reasons that Ryu never denies it, too. She thinks her father strange for not being happy for her as Onitsuka’s lover. When she becomes Okamisan, her father will be comfortable for life. He warns her not to think so high because her disappointment is going to be bigger. Plus, Ryu has a fiance as well. Akiko doesn’t care and shrug her shoulders because Ryu never mention his fiance. Akiko thinks she isn’t dreaming but she is reality. She is super confident in herself. lol
Yuji is starting to court Mayumi even on his hospital bed. He feels sad that he won’t get to see her healing him. Masaru comes in and greet Mayumi. After Mayumi left, Masaru warns Yuji to be careful what he is doing. Mayumi Takahashi is Ryu Onitsuka’s fiance.
Ryu tells Taichi that he usually changes his routes without telling anyone ahead of time for safety reasons. His will notify of his schedule everyday. He fiercely do not want anyone to know his route.
Taichi sends breakfast to Akiko’s house. Ends up Taichi and Akiko knows each other when they are young. Her father practically raised Taichi after his parents died. He seems like he loves her but whenever she’s with Ryu she acts like she doesn’t know him. He feels upset. She doesn’t think she should equal herself to him when she’s with Ryu. Akiko has her own plan though so she tells Taichi that she will not act like that with Taichi anymore. She gives a gift to Taichi but tells him to inform her what Ryu does every day. Taichi has to protect her future husband. She has no mercy. Maybe she knows he likes her because she sure is using Taichi to her advantage. She cannot be that dense since she is so calculating. Taichi is not happy with her.
Masaru becomes the commander in chief after Osamu passed away instead of Hiro. Hiro doesn’t mind because his job is not about status but is about doing the right thing. After Masaru becomes the chief, Ryu is under suspicion as the culprit behind Osamu’s death.
Ryu rethink back to when his father, Takeshi and Ijiro died. He feels heavy-hearted, probably thinking about the dangers that are coming. Masaru arrives at Onitsuka house wanting to take Ryu for an interrogation. Koji refuses to allow them to enter. Masaru challenge Koji if they’re trying to find time for Ryu’s escape. Ryu, however, is willing to go because he knows he isn’t behind Osamu’s assassination.
They have evidence though that Ryu is the one order the kill. It’s a setup, the Onitsuka knows that. However, every evidence is pointing to Onitsuka. Even the gun used to kill Osamu has the Onitsuka seal. Ryu sure is a bit shocked they stole his gun.
Mayumi’s friend asks if Mayumi knows about Ryu’s news yet. She doesn’t want to know but her friend informs her that it’s about the accusation Ryu is the one behind Osamu’s death. If Mayumi is worry, she should go see him. She is stubborn so she doesn’t know why she has to worry about him. Her friend says, that she is Ryu’s fiance. Mayumi refuses to answer anything. Her friend finally gives up then says that since Mayumi has no love for Ryu anymore, she cheers for the man behind them.
Yuji and his poor lily. Couldn’t he bring more? Mayumi is impress though praising the flower is pretty. Yuji wants to thank Mayumi like she’s his life savior. He’s happy he gets a scar because the beginning of their meeting will never disappear. Mayumi says that the scar will heal itself. Shy, Mayumi excuses herself if he doesn’t have anything else. He wants her to ask about the meaning of the lily. She thinks it’s just a thankful meaning.
According to Yuji, it has three meaning. 1. You are so delicate and sweet, and so good 2. thank you for meeting each other 3. thank you that I get to stay close to you.
Ryu gets bail out. Masaru says that even though they can bail Ryu but doesn’t mean they are higher than the law. Of course, Ryu will never tries to run away. Masaru wants them to know that the evident will not disappear too. Ryu sternly says that evidence is for arresting the culprit who is not him.
Masaru has the police stalk Ryu in case Ryu tries to run out of the country. Hiro argues that Onitsuka are good people. But Masaru makes Hiro uncomfortable by saying maybe he doesn’t know Hiro well.
Ryu is angry and miss Mayumi at the same time. Even the koto doesn’t make him happy. He is seriously a lonely person. lol Ryu wants to go out again.
Yuji meets with Mayumi outside the hospital and offers to drive her home. Mayumi refuses because he is still afterall her patient. He changes tactic that at least then he will send her to the train station. Yuji, the very gentleman he is help an elder lady hold her bags and crosses the street. He even offers to put his jacket on Mayumi because she is cold. She should not catch a cold as a doctor. awwww This is heartbreaking to see Ryu witnessing a man being sweet to Mayumi. Who told you to keep hiding? SIGH.
Mayumi goes home happy while Ryu angry and hurt. So, Ryu puts all his anger on kendo against Taichi… but Taichi is too good that he doesn’t soften for Ryu. lol Taksu and Seigi think they’re going to be relief of this punishment. After Taichi won the game, Ryu looked like he’s ready for a kill. HAHA. Taichi apologizes but Ryu fault himself for not concentrating. He allows Taichi rest but asks for Taksu and Seigi to fight with him. Both refuses to go in and keeps telling the other to say it first. They are both witness at the scene. Ryu annoy at their bickering asks what is going on? Both don’t dare to say out loud until Taichi fake a hit. Both Taksu and Seigi shout at the same time that it’s time for Soreal to reveal himself to Mayumi. It’s been 7 years! If he doesn’t do anything, the girl will think he doesn’t love her. You can see it in Ryu’s eyes how much he realize that is true! So, has he always assume she should know he loves her? SIGH. She almost give her heart to a psycho, opps I mean a true gentleman. LMAO I think with this realization, Ryu might come out of the cave.
Koji, Kasuma and Masato have a meeting that they cannot allow Soreal to get frame anymore. They have to do something. Koji wants to interrogate the assassin himself. They have someone at the police force that can get them in. While they were at the prison, the assassin is poison by his wife. She is forced to poison him because her kids are kidnapped. Too late.
During a busy day, of course, Ryu shows up at the most inopportune time. She has to go out to just to see him when she has patients to care for? I guess men with power can get what they want. They leave us with a cliff hanger of Mayumi shocked to see Ryu holding a bigger and prettier flowers for Mayumi. I think he looks like a creep getting caught.
