Scene from early on in ร่ายริษยา (rai risaya), as the story — along with the protagonists’ romance — is just getting started; a scene I had wanted to come back to because it’s got a lot of vocab that flies right over my head:
ร่ายริษยา (rai risaya) is a fun little Thai TV channel 3 lakorn from 2007 which starts off as an island resort romance, morphs into the story of a young couple who are the subject of multiple machinations designed to tear them apart, and then becomes a tale of attempted murder and revenge. A lot of the pleasure for me in watching this lakorn was in seeing the plot spin off in new, unexpected directions, and watching the transformations of the characters; by the time rai risaya comes to an end, the story — and some of the characters — have moved quite far from their beginnings.
It’s the kind of lakorn that though I’d probably never rewatch it, I enjoyed immensely.
Note that there are some problems with the (currently) only available copy on youtube: some of it’s missing (probably roughly an hour’s worth), while another segment (again, about an hour long) has been muted out; nonetheless it remains a very watchable, enjoyable story.
Here’s the playlist.
