Coming July 30, 2020 to Channel 7, Prom Pissawat (2020) is finally airing. It was supposed to air earlier in March, but was delayed because of COVID19. I’ve already written about this Channel 7 lakorn here, so check that out for more info. The synopsis reminds me a lot of 2018’s Tra Barb See Chompoo, so if you liked that lakorn, you might want to keep an eye on this one. I believe neko has this on her subbing list so this will be English subbed.
This is the story of God bringing two unlikely people from different parts of the world together. Plapol, a half Korean-half Thai man who grew up in Korea his whole life but chose to escape to Thailand sees his new step-mother as just another gold digger after his dad’s wealth. He pretty much thinks that of all women because his mother disappeared from his life since divorcing his dad when he was young. With hatred for his step-mother, Plapol decided to go to Thailand to find his mother. While in Thailand, Plapol goes to a bar and meets a young woman named Pantawan, a sexy singer who’s popular among the men there. He views her in the same light as the other women he has come across in his life. However, Pantawan is not that type of woman and doesn’t take insult from anyone especially from a misogynistic man like him. The two always get in a fight but eventually they came to an understanding and fell in love. But after love blossomed, all is not rosy for Plapol and Pantawan because of one truth that gets revealed: Pantawan’s mother is Plapol’s new step-mother.(Source: NinjaKKN)

Outside of Tra Barb See Chompoo, there seems to be a number of lakorns with the similar plot of our pra’ek believing his stepsister (the nang’ek) and her mom are gold diggers. Of course, 99.9% of the time he’s wrong, but lots of angst and bickering before he realizes it, 😂. Didn’t realize this was a thing, but now I’m looking for it, even Sawan Biang was basically the same, except it was the sister, not the mom who married pra’ek’s dad. Here are some more lakorns with a similar theme: Kehas See Dang (2011), Muean Khon La Fark Fah (2017).
