Soundtrack: Yah Leum Chan (1)

The long anticipated lakorn Yah Leum Chan (Forget Me Not) premiered last week. It’s from the novel under the same name from the author of Khu Kam. The novel is very popular among generations. I remembered reading the novel a long time ago and fell in love with it. Only one episode aired recently, so it’s too soon to tell, but I was satisfied with the production as a whole, the editing especially.


There are four key players in the story: Kemchard by Tik Jesadaporn, Suriyawadee/Suriyong by Ann Thongprasom, Kenlong by Rita Sririta, Eua by Kong Saharat. In short (episode 1), during college, Kemchard and Wadee are very much love. Wadee suddenly drops out and disappeared. It hurts Kemchard very deeply. He crosses the street and is hit by a car. Years later, he comes back from abroad and meets her again as his newly hired secretary working on the first day. He fires her on spot, later changes his mind and has her work for him.

Wadee already a widow raising the twin boys on her own living with her parents. She came back from Switzerland after her husband passed away. The twins inherit a huge amount and Wadee  is currently waiting for all the legal documents to be processed.

Then we have Eua who has been Wadee’s good friend for a long time and also is the twins’ elder brother. Kemchard has Kenlong as his potential love interest. Despite their time together aboard, Kenlong feels that there’s something in Kemchart’s heart that she hasn’t been able to see through, which she hopes she will someday. Forget Me Not is the flower on the ring that Kemchard chose for Wadee. All of the truth will come out as the story goes along.

(Translated from the novel’s cover: ISBN 978-974-446-755-3)

“Here, it’s yours…” Kemchard grabs her hand and puts it on her finger.

“Not an engagement ring, not the wedding ring, but it’s the ring that holds all the love I had for you. “

The five petals flower-shaped ring appears so bright.

That’s right..Yah Leum Chan  “Forget Me Not”. This ring…that love, still remembered.

“Wadee…later, no matter how many of around ten karat diamond ring I’ll buy for you, but I know there won’t be any ring so precious to you and me like this ring, because it’s this ring only that kept reminding you and me all this time to,  Forget Me Not!”

The acting from the leads was good so far, except (with respect to Ann’s fans)…Ann’s imo. It felt stiff and I couldn’t feel her chemistry with Tik, however, to my surprise, I could feel a rather sweet chemistry between Tik and Rita that I wished she could be Wadee instead *run to hide*

Oh, all right, it’s too soon to tell 🙂

Bits of episode one that made me feel sad for Kemchard, despite his temper, is this one.

Credits as tagged.

It’s the song A Tu Corazon Su Klang Jai Ther (a tu corazon to your heart)

I think the first part of the title is in Spanish? anyone?

I like the full song here, sang by Pun.

*All Spanish taken from the video credits

Translation of the lyrics:

Even though, it’s far, so very far away

And  I think I could step there only half way,

On the day I got to hold your hand that time,

It’s, as though, I saw the path to the heart

But from here, will it be far,

from that hand of yours, to the heart

I don’t know how long it will take

Because it looks so far away, to what end

I don’t know how long it will take

I’m ready to step forward

To your heart

No Me Importa Si Todos Te Miran

No Me Importa Lo Que Digan De Ti

No Me Importa Como Pasa El Tiempo

Sabiendo Yo Que Tu Me Quieres

But from here, will it be far,

from that hand of yours, to the heart

I don’t know how long it will take

Because it looks so far away, No Lo Se

I don’t know how long it will take

I’m ready to step forward, A Tu Corazon

But from here, will it be far,

from that hand of yours, to the heart

I don’t know how long it will take

Because it looks so far away, to what end

I don’t know how long it will take

I’m ready to step forward

To your heart, A Tu Corazon

Such a sweet song  🙂

  1. I still have the fever of this story. I liked the actors, the story, the settings and the soundtracks. This would be my forever one of few favorites lakhorn ever! Thank you! I was so satisfied with the ending.
    By the way I am from the Philippines I love and a big fan of Ann Thongprasom.

  2. Here’s another version by Rose Sirintip

  3. Thanks for the translation of the lyrics. Are you planning on recapping or translating parts of this series too ? Also was Khen Chart a jerk in the novel too ?

    • Watched ep2, and felt it has a promising future 🙂
      In the novel, the story didn’t tell you in the beginning if Suriyong was Suriyawadee, the woman Khemchard loved. It revealed the past little by little. I couldn’t remember hating Khemchard, but remembered the two love each other very deeply. Even though Kemchard was harsh to Su, there’s something sweet about him too throughout the story, otherwise the novel wouldn’t be this popular, and the phrase ‘Forget Me Not’ really would get to you in the end.

      • Thanks! I guess the series is going to be quite different from the book. I just don’t find any sweetness about Khem from the first episode. Haven’t watched episode 2 as yet though.

  4. the song bird is nice too, I still remember the old version with pete and ann siriam.
