I ran into Lakorns when i came across other side of YouTube when I was watching some Vampire Diaries kiss scenes. (Come on girls, we know we all look up kiss scenes:P). So I watched this clip.
Now for those who have never heard of lakorns, let me define them to you.
Lakorn: A complicated, sometimes too extended soap opera centered around way too many misunderstandings between the main girl and main guy who hate each until the last episode because the main guy is arrogant and the main girl is stubborn, and often needs a rape scene to calm the guy down and tie the knot.
Yes you heard it right, a rape scene. But we’ll talk about that later.
The clip was a part of an episode in the drama “Sawan Biang”. I’ll provide a review for this lakorn later, but I’ll give an extremely brief synopsis: An interesting show with a hot guy basically molesting the main girl for the whole show because his ex is now married to his dad and he wants revenge, and the main girl just happens to be his ex’s sister. So he kidnaps her to his vacation house and makes love to her a million times till he finds out he’s in love with her…
Trust me. You’ll love this show if you like some rough love. I do. Is it vulgar? Despite the plot and its intentions, Thai people don’t put vulgar scenes on TV and the rape scenes in shows are basically the guy kissing her neck.
Anyway, after watching the entire show in less than 30 hours, I found out there’s practically an entire genre of lakorns that are centered around plots like this. Name of Genre: Slap and Kiss.
Genius. Why? Cause that’s what the main couple does whenever they meet. He says something stupid, she gets mad and slaps him. He gets mad and kisses her. Or rapes her.
I always love watching those scenes.
The kisses I mean. Not the rape.
As for the rape.
Recently, people have been showing concern for the rape scenes in lakorns because directors keep putting it in as if its like a mandatory part of the plot. I agree. it sometimes is unnecessary, BUT. It does keep you awake as to how the girl and/or guy will take care of it.
But why the heck would you fall in love with someone who raped you? Hello?
But thats their opinion. But. But. But.
So, regardless of the G rated rape scenes, I fell in love with this show because it was so interesting. Here’s the video I watched back then as a present:D The entire show is on YT if you’re interested. Perservere! Stick through it! You might like it! If you want to watch he next part or the rest of the series, you can find it in the playlist under Sawan Biang in “wishboniko” channel.
SO. My gateway lakorn was Sawan Biang…what was yours if you’ve watched any?
