Lom Sorn Ruk is the name of Nadech’s new lakorn and he is going for twins this time. Ah-ha, so we will get 2 pairs in one series which means two lovelines for two Nadech(s), meaning, we will see him fall in love with 2 leading ladies! So much for Nadech on-screen, right?
Nadech(I) is a doctor named Prannon [pran-non]. He’s working for a state hospital in a faraway amphur (district) up in the North.
Anddd….his leading lady is…Taew (from Khun Chai Ratchanon)….YaY! They haven’t been able to put these two together until this one (right?), aww….somehow I trust these two to make a perfect couple.
Taew’s character is a bit naive-to-the-world named Patrin [pat-trin]. She leaves Bangkok to live in her hometown with her mother where she will meet Prannon mesmerized by the music from his “seung”-playing, a Thai musical instrument (looks a bit like guitar down below).
Eh…that’s Dr. Prannon practicing seung, I guess.
Nadach (II) is a businessman named Pran (getting confused? Me too). The two are twins, of course. Pran has his own loveline with Aunna [aun-na] portrayed by Patricia Good.
From left to right: the director, Patricia, the PD, Taew, and Nadech.
They are looking good, aren’t they? Can’t wait to see Taew with Nadech. He’s still busy shooting the Rising Sun.
Lom Sorn Ruk (the novel)
I honestly haven’t finished the book but did flip through to the end to get the tone of the story. It’s a cute bickering kind between Dr. Prannon and Patrin, then I got confused between Prannon and Pran, the two will trick you, I can tell you that.
Title: Lom Sorn Ruk
Let’s take a peek….
The bus brings Patrin back to her hometown, Khun Pha Mok, a district which takes four hours drive from Chiang Mai (the northern province).
In the evening, Patrin loves to ride a bicycle on a quiet street along rice green fields. The wind blows softly bringing along the smell of Jasmin flowers from Jasmin trees lining in the front of a house. She keeps looking at the house so her bicycle falls into a ditch scratching her knees in the process. She’s pulling the bike up when she hears the sweet sound of seung floating into the evening sky. She stops in her tracks, the sound deeply captures her heart.
She leans over the fence and sees a man sitting on the doorstep crossing his legs happily playing a folk stringed instrument.
“Who are you? Anything you need?” he perks up and asks. He stops playing when he sees her standing behind the fence.
When he gets up and walks to her, she can see his face clearly. He has a handsome face, his build is more like an athlete than a person who can play such sweet music.
She tells him that she heard the music so she stopped to listen subconsciously. He sees her scratched knees so he offers to clean her wounds on a bench outside the house. He grabs her bicycle and pulls it to his house. He comes back with a first aid kit.
He cleans her wounds and it stings.
“Enough, enough” she cries out in tears.
“Didn’t disinfect and put medicine on yet.”
“There’s more? No, no more.”
“So loud, how old are you?”he mutters.
“It’s my business how old I am” she frowns. “How about you? It’s strange, you treat the wounds so skillfully and even have medical equipments at hand.”
“I’m a doctor.”
“Why? (You) Make face like haven’t seen one.”
“I’ve seen a doctor but not a doctor like you.”
She thinks, a doctor with a muscular build, yet sentimental like a composer, with beautiful pianist-liked hands, long fingers having soft touch…it’s actually suitable for a doctor.
“I have never seen a grown-up who cries like a kid just because of falling down too.”
He tells her she shouldn’t ride a bicycle this late in the evening. It gets dark fast in this area and not enough light. She argues that she didn’t mean to stay until it got dark if she didn’t fall down, and her house is not that far from his house.
He ends up sending her home riding on his own bicycle.
That’s in chapter one how the two meets. They become close and Patrin loves to go to his house to listen to his seung-playing. Patrin came back to this town because she’s betrayed by her ex-boyfriend and she ended up with a two million debt.
One day she receives a summon to appear in court. Prannon overhears about it and offers to lend her the money.
“Are you crazy? I have on one to guarantee and no assets too.”
“I know that you have none, that’s why I gave you a choice to think about it.”
“No, there’s no reason to accept your help. We are not related, and may be you don’t even know my name. I’m just a person who lives close by.”
“Must have a reason and related for you to accept it?” Prannon turns quiet for a sec before saying “What if take it as a dowry, will you accept it, Patrin?”
The stars in the sky are whirling and she feels like the whole world is trembling down in front of her.
That’s the end of chapter 5, and after Prannon takes time to explain his need to do it, they get married. He tells her when she can give him back the money, they will get a divorce. They spend time bickering days away sweetly until the thing about Prannon’s twin brother starts to surface up, and Patrin (and me) gets confused who is who?
I got stuck there and haven’t been able to finish the book. The thing about any twins is that you will never really know who they are if they don’t want you to……..creepy, isn’t it?
Let’s leave some room for a surprise together when this lakorn comes out 🙂
