Childhood love. Never really been a fan. But I have to admit it is a very popular trope in Asian dramas and even in some lakorns. Hmm, what about unrequited love or just love in general? How about family love, siblings, or what about friendship? Or bromance? This week is the week of love in various forms.
Ngao Asoke (2016) synopsis: This is a story about Bpeeyachat a young orphan that meets Monthai, the son from a rich family, during her childhood and befriends him. A car accident takes her grandmother, her last living family member, away from her and she starts living with Viyada and her family. Monthai, who is engaged to Viyada, goes abroad for studies because he can’t stand living at home anymore because of his mother’s insane jealousy and the terrible things that happened because of it. During his time abroad, he sends many letters to his fiancee, which are not answered by her, but instead by Bpeeyachat.
