I’m falling hard for this lakorn at the moment. The cast is doing such a great job making it hard to resist translating this song, Who will understand if (you) don’t hurt like me (translated from Thai song title).
Karat (Ploy) and Pheung( Jui)are celebrating their 12 years of friendship when the news hits Karat that her third husband had an accident and now in critical condition. Karat rushes to the hospital in Pisud (Pope)’s car who happens to drive by when her car broke down. Once she gets to the hospital, her husband had already passed away, she cries and later is in rage to learn that he died while in his car with a mistress.
At the funeral, a woman shows up with proof that she’s also one of Karat husband’s wives demanding her share of his assets, then later Karat also finds out that her best friend, Pheung, is pregnant with her dead husband’s child, only to learn more from Pheung that they had registered their marriage before Karat’s wedding (while she didn’t) and planned to use Karat’s money to build their family together while he spent time as Karat’s husband.
Pisud falls in love with Karat despite her past and insists that he truly loves her. Pheung, as Pisud coworker, knows he’s a good man and wants him to be her child’s father. Her dream shattered when she finds out that Karat is the one he loves dearly. Pisud tells her he loves Karat after hearing Pheung’s love confession for him.
Accusing the injustice world that Karat always has everything while her is on the opposite, she vows to create justice for herself.
This time Karat makes sure to register the marriage and declares now he’s hers and she’s his. Pisud tells her kindly that a mere document won’t be able to keep him with her if his mind is not. He tells her that he married her only because of love.
Pheung shows up in Karat and Pisud Wedding to Karat’s nightmare (that Pisud failed to tell her that he knows Pheung well, and also his coworker). Pheung gives Karat some wise words, to hold him dearly for this wedding night, because other days he may be with others. Too furious to stay silent, Karat’s mother approaches Pheung and accidentally causes Pheung to bumb into a table. She cries out in pain and the water broke, she’s about to deliver the baby. Pisud can’t stand still wanting to take her to the hospital. Karat stops him grabbing his wrist not to go near Pheung. He asks how can he not and rushes to Pheung that Karat has to let go of his wrist. He carries Pheung in his arms. Pheung’s face turn to Karat without Pisud seeing, she smirks at Karat. Bad sign for her fourth marriage, Karat stands there and cries (end of episode 5).
Translation of the lyrics:
It exists, does it, a lover who won’t deceive
It exists, does it, a love that is like a dream
I’m just afraid that you will see at me as something to pass by
Just like others, others who came before
Been longing to the point, don’t believe true love exists
Been longing to the point, don’t hope to meet someone decent
If today it’s you, then prove to me that there’s a faithful love in you
*Who will understand how scary love is, if you don’t hurt like me
How many already who came being so nice, but in the end, betrayed me every time
It’s all gone, every feeling of me; don’t want to love anyone anymore today
You, please tell me, that true love does exist
Having the same nightmare over and over, about everyone who came by
Having the same nightmare over and over, only to end up drowning in tears
If the time from today, you can heal me
I will probably wake up from this nightmare
(Repeat * 2 times)
That true love does exist
