Instead of watching various kdramas I am currently following or continuing with Joi Rak (which I continue to adore - it makes me think of a kdrama melodrama circa 2001), do you know what I spent my morning and afternoon doing?

If you guessed "watching Sawan Biang", you'll be right.

Just as with Defendant of Love, I can't claim I didn't know what I was getting into - flisties pretty much told me it's another "hero rapes heroine for revenge, they live happily ever after" dramas. I have no idea why I checked out SB - clearly the trainwreck syndrome is deeply ingrained. Or maybe I just don't understand how they can make dramas with that sort of storyline over and over and need to see for myself. Who knows.

For my own self-preservation, I skipped the first half and started with ep 8 (this drama is 12 eps, 90 minutes each), because that way I was pretty sure I'd avoid all the raping.

Hmmmmm. I will NEVER understand the Thai love of that particular trope but whatever the hell they mix into their lakorns it was sure addictive because I couldn't stop even if I kept chanting at the screen for heroine to brain hero with a frying pan. At least in this version, unlike in DoL, she made him jump through enough hoops to qualify for circus membership before she decided he's reformed and took him back and she kept it up for months, unlike the harebrained heroine of DoL whose thought processes basically went like "you tortured and raped me but it was a giant misunderstanding and you say you are sorry so squee!"

I must admit I mightily enjoyed watching him jumping through hoops, suffering, and otherwise reaping reward for years of bad bad karma he must have accumulated. My favorite bit was where he got a bunch of thugs to beat him into unconsciousness. I rewatched that bit twice, cheering the thugs the whole way. Heroine also told him what she thought of him, treated him like dirt (when he'd cook her meals every day and she'd throw them out in front of him = in your face), and ran away repeatedly making him search for her. My favorite bit when she told him the baby she was pregnant with was not his but another boyfriend's. Ha! Finally, she only took him back after months of his working his butt off to please her and then signing over ever bit of property he owns to her, so he was basically penniless, as a condition for seeing his kid and no guarantee of her even tolerating him around her. Ha! In your face! Now, I confess I wished she'd then call the cops and throw his penniless ass in jail where he can experience the joy of being a rape victim firsthand but we can't have everything in a lakorn.

Hero was a bit dim, I must say. So, the reason he wanted revenge was because his father married a new wife and she was a giant bitch who made his life unpleasant. So he got his revenge by kidnapping and raping...the wife's sister? How does that even make sense? At least the hero of DoL tried to get revenge on the person who was responsible for his little bro's death, not some family member (even if he blew it by getting the wrong person. Lakorn heroes are not very smart, are they?)

I have never seen the actress in anything before but she's truly gorgeous and has a very warm vibe. The actor is the same as in Joi Rak (I much prefer his non-rapist character in the latter) and is gorgeous as well, even if I wanted to scratch his character's eyes out. He played sweet and angsty very well, except I could not get over the whole RAPIST CREEP part (and what I saw from flashbacks was enough to convince me never to check the first half of SB if I did not want to put my fist through the screen). They have great chemistry and under other circs I'd probably ship the hell out of the pairing. But not being a 1970s romance reader, I am out.

In conclusion, I'd love for a hot guy to clean my floors, cook me yummy meals from scratch, cut my toenails, and decorate my view by standing by my window in a torrential downpour all night, but seeing as he'd have to kidnap me and rape me first, I will stick to cooking my own food and cleaning my own floors.

ETA: I watched it on youtube and the comments were the best part! Half the people were "he lurves her so much and is so hot, why is she holding out?" and the other half were "are you insane? He raped her, if it was up to me, he'd rot in jail forever!" and they really were going at it in a mini-flame-war. And then there were some people who blamed heroine's sister for the rape because if she didn't keep provoking hero, he'd never get pissed off enough to rape her sister which is...whaaaaaaaat?

I hate to give up on the whole country's output but all three attempts to get into Thai lakorns have been unmitigated disasters.

First came Defendant of Love which I inhaled in two days in a sheer state of disbelieving horror. The hero of that one decided to get revenge on the woman who caused his brother to kill himself, only to kidnap his target's cousin. He proceeded to torture her, rape her, and then they feel in love. I simply could not stop because I couldn't believe what I was actually seeing and kept hoping someone would jump out and yell "surprise!" The two leads were gorgeous as all get-out and had incredible chemistry, but overall this was about the sickest mainstream thing I've seen. Somewhere there is a 1970s romance novel author weeping she did not get to use this plot.

The second one was Autumn Destiny. I liked the heroine and her sweet fiance. However, the story was about heroine and creep who kidnapped her (minus the raping, thankfully) as part of some completely idiotic (seriously, I could be here all day explaining why it was stupid) revenge plan against her father. Having learned from DoL, I gave up a few eps in. This did not even have benefits of gorgeous actors with great chemistry as hero looked about 12 and chemistry was nonexistent.

My third and final try was Leave the Last Light at Horizon. Shockingly, there was no raping or kidnapping, and the set-up was one I'd eat up with a spoon - hero is an elite bodyguard who is hired to protect a princess from a fictional kingdom which just suffered a coup d'etat. They fall into forbidden love. To top it off, the leading actor was so gorgeous, it was unreal. HOWEVER, I got through about 7 episodes and nothing happened. I mean it. I've seen sitcoms which had more story. I gave up because, incredibly, whoever made this screwed up a total gimme. (Though maybe I'll go back to it one of these days just to check if the pace picked up).

So this was my three unlucky attempts. I am almost giving up on lakorns but I want to give them one last try. Any recommendations? I don't care about budget (I grew up watching Soviet TV), and I am pretty lenient about acting ability, all I require is (1) no hero on heroine rape if possible (2) something actually happens.

So, if you could rec a lakorn to me, what would it be?

Today, I woke up in an excellent mood because there were more Defendant of Love episodes for me to watch and bash. I now understand why people watch things they hate - bashing this is so very fun (and dreadfully easy - seeing how many appalling flaws it has, it's rather like beating a cripple. Almost unsportsmanlike).

Btw - this is a self-selected viewing - I rather fastforward through anything that does not involve Heroine - business machinations of Hero's rivals and some sort of a complicated love hexagon of Heroine's evil cousin get uniformly skipped. I think it's the same impulse that prompted me to get "Devil in the White City", a nonfiction account of the Chicago World Fair AND a serial killer, and read only the serial killer parts - I love a good trainwreck.

Anyway, the latest from the island of rich and psychotic is Hero being terribly terribly sorry for all the mistaken torturing and raping but still not doing the best thing he can (next to offing himself, but alas...) i.e. letting Heroine go home. Nah, she's still captive even if she doesn't have to do housework for her rapist any more. He can't let her go because he LUUUUUURVES her.

"Anger can make people do things without thinking" qouth Hero to Heroine when explaining the kidnapping and all that followed. Hmmm, some angry people yell. Other angry people kidnap women and torture them for months. Same thing.

Awwww, Hero promises Heroine not to rape her again, and acknowledges he did her wrong. Awwww. What a sweetheart! STABSTABSTAB. (You know, the sad thing is, Hero's actor is crazy hot and does wounded puppy look so well - only problem is his character is a torturer rapist! I might need to find something with him that has no raping.)

I am pleased to note, btw, that in the midst of her travails, even when she was chained up, Heroine never once forgot to put on her concealer, eye liner and lip gloss. She clearly has her priorities straight.

Hero has promised Heroine to send her home. Awwww. So sweet. He finally decided to let the woman he kidnapped for no reason go. He's a saint, I tell you, a saint.

Btw, did I mention that I am watching this on youtube and comments are full of swoony shippers for Harit and So (the characters) many of whom think it would be utterly romantic for So to have Harit's baby from that lovely night of rape. Sample non-babyish comments aren't much better: "I like the he tells her, talk to me nice or I drag you into the car and never bring you back, and you know I can do it. LOL Love it, love it!!!"

ETA: And now I finished. Happy endings all around, with hugs, hand-kissings, and eternal love promises (though I must say I did crack up at the part where she made him do everything he made her do even if a major part of me was screaming that it makes a huge difference that he could call quits atany time and she couldn't. Still, it was amusing at least).

Moral of the story: Girls, be good and you will marry a hot and rich rapist. After all, it isn't rape if the guy is hot:



Soraya tells you so:



You know, so much angst in Korean dramas could have been avoided with a little judicious raping and torturing - You remember how angsty Gong Chan was in My Girl when Yoo Rin ran away for two years and then after he found her, she pretended she didn't love him? If instead of trying to find out what was wrong and proposing marriage he would have just dragged her off, almost drowned her, and raped her until she liked it, I am sure it would have solved the problem much faster. Or that bit in Last Scandal where Jae Bin got Sun Hee a cake to cheer her up after her scummy husband divorced her? He should have just chained her up and raped her until she cheered up. Duh!

"I promise I will not hurt you again, Soraya. I am so sorry."

Ahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

You have got to be kidding me. "Oooops, my bad. I thought you were someone else, kidnapped you, mistreated you, and raped you. But I didn't know you were my target's cousin and beside I totally lurve you so how can you not love me back?"

Hero appears to be honestly puzzled as to why Heroine loathes him. Let's see: you kidnapped her, dragged her around on a chain, almost drowned her, almost raped her repeatedly, threatened her with gang rape, oh, and finally raped her. Among other lovely things. Geee, I wonder why she ain't keen on you? After all, you wiped her brow when she got sick after the rape and also bought her a bracelet. Such a fine specimen of manhood you are. This said, the scene where he found out he mistreated the wrong person was GOLD. In your face, moron! You are not only violent, but dumb as some really thick bricks.

ETA: Awww, you are making her breakfast now. May I gag? But not before castrating you.

ETA2: The sad thing is that the actors are both good-looking people and have decent chemistry - in some other story I would have enjoyed watching them together but with a story like that only a psycho can ship them.

ETA3: Hero offers Heroine to stab him with a knife. Go for it, girl! But the bastard offers when there is no knife around. *sigh* Maybe you can ask for a raincheck, Heroine? Seriously - apologies? So not cutting it here. It's not "oops, I stepped on your foot" here, moron!

ETA4:"You are my most shining peal." gag gag gag - not unless you rape your pearls, she ain't, swine! It's a freaking expensive bracelet, though, so she should accept it, sell it, and hire a hitman with the money.

"I promise I will not hurt you again, Soraya. I am so sorry."

Ahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

You have got to be kidding me. "Oooops, my bad. I thought you were someone else, kidnapped you, mistreated you, and raped you. But I didn't know you were my target's cousin and beside I totally lurve you so how can you not love me back?"

Hero appears to be honestly puzzled as to why Heroine loathes him. Let's see: you kidnapped her, dragged her around on a chain, almost drowned her, almost raped her repeatedly, threatened her with gang rape, oh, and finally raped her. Among other lovely things. Geee, I wonder why she ain't keen on you? After all, you wiped her brow when she got sick after the rape and also bought her a bracelet. Such a fine specimen of manhood you are. This said, the scene where he found out he mistreated the wrong person was GOLD. In your face, moron! You are not only violent, but dumb as some really thick bricks.

And now Hero raped Heroine. Compared to everything else he's done and the fact that it's about eleventh rape attempt, I am not even as pissed off as I thought I would be - mainly because I have gone numb from loathing about 5 episode before and have been in a continuous state of rage and hatred of him since very beginning. They could show him eat babies and I would not be surprised.

HOW IS THIS ROMANCE HOW????

Oh God. I think I will never ever check out another Thai lakorn ever ever again.

The only moment of pleasure I had in the entire seven eps was when she hit him with a hard and heavy stick and knocked him out. I shall cherish that forever.

No, I have no idea why I am watching this.

ETA: I lied. I am so burningly angry, I am numb with it. I have detailed fantasies of Hero getting slowly castrated with dull and rusty knives and then slowly stabbed to death over days.

ETA2: The FUCK! We are supposed to feel sorry for him because he feels a little bad about it? DIEDIEDIEDIE

We just found out Hero murdered some guy in cold blood because he slept with his girlfriend.

I think we were supposed to find him cool and tough for that (the girlfriend certainly did - she is all upset he kicked her out and is trying to come back to him believing he loves her otherwise he would have killed her too).

This drama is written by psychopaths.

Seriously.

My jaw is permanently open.

The Heroine, meanwhile, has also lost her mind and her main reaction to this piece of news is to advise Girlfriend how to reconcile with Psycho (though I hope that is because she thinks she will find it easier to escape then).

There was also a charming bit where he forced her to play a strip game (she was forced to ask questions and if she got it wrong, she'd have to take off an item of clothing) and the part where he ripped her shirt off but none of this compares to the fact that he is a cold-blooded, sick-headed murderer and we are supposed to find it cool.

Oh, and we are supposed to find it funny when he takes off his pants and she freaks he is going to rape her but he only wants her to sew them.

He is also constantly promising to kill her at some future day when he gets tired of tormenting her.

GOD, I HOPE THE MAKERS OF THIS GET A LOT OF THERAPY.

The Hero has now cholroformed Heroine and stuffed her in the truck. That's quite a first meeting.

Also, honestly, I don't get why evil Cousin is so deserving of punishment - yeah, she dumped Hero's brother and he offed himself. Fine, she even told him to go do it. But it's not her fault he is a nutcase who took her at her word! I am willing to buy his bro wants her to suffer but I think we are sort of supposed to share his loathing of her and I don't. Seriously - Hero, your bro was a loony, chill and get over it.

I kinda love So (the heroine) - she is yelling at the top of her lungs and insulting a guy who kidnapped her, has her in the back of his truck, and is clearly pissed-off and dangerous. She doesn't cower at all. Now, if only the hero of this drama was someone who rescued her from the psycho as opposed to the psycho himself.

She is so fucking awesome - totally fearless and lashing out. Unfortunately I WANT THE HERO TO DIE IN A FIRE AFTER BEING POKED WITH RUSTY NAILS. diediediediediescumoftheearth! Ooooh, you blindfold her, drag her somewhere rustic, tie her arms and legs and then scream at her. Then you unblindfold her and chain her in a hut. Congratulations, you win Sociopath of the Decade award, NOW GO AND DIE YOU FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING MONSTER.

Yeah, the Hero looks and acts like a serial killer. And now he is dragging her by a chain? DIEDIEDIEDIEDIEDIE

Gaaah, I can't. I am bailing out, after half of an episode in. Except I am not, not really, because I am so appalled that it really is trainwreck rubbernecking - I cannot tear myself away because I keep thinking surely it can't be like this but it is!
