Usually I don’t notice a lot of things, this I noticed–a ‘Domo’ themed backpack near the end of episode 8 of Khun Chai Puttipat. They are at the market to buy food and they are arguing, she is thinking about starting up a shop selling appetizers and sweets in Ayutthaya and he is annoyed she is planning to leave him.
Khun Chai Pat:’Why are you always thinking about leaving me?’
He walks away and she follows him.
Kaew:’I must be able to raise myself up. I can’t disturb other people from now on.’
Khun Chai Pat:’Who are these other people?’
Kaew utters his name and in the backdrop there are backpacks hanging in a nearby shop, most notably a ‘Domo’ themed backpack. This is annoyed some Thai viewers who complained on Pantip that the Director was careless and this is a period lakorn set in 1961 (2504), why is there a Domo themed backpack when the Domo short-motion animation character was created in 1998 by Japan’s NHK television station. Some found it funny like this Thai viewer:’5555 (meaning Ha ha ha), my mom found it really funny like huh back then they had Domo too?’ Or this, ‘I didn’t see it because I was too focus on Khun Chai Puttipat.’
Other people started to complain about other details in the lakorn such as the purse (I don’t know which one they are talking about) they didn’t have it back then, Khun Chai Pat’s surgery instruments, his surgery technique, no blood, guy villain Glai-Lerk (played by DJ Man)’s fixed perfect teeth. ‘Whenever he talks I would notice DJ Man’s arranged teeth,’ wrote a observant Thai viewer on Pantip. And I thought wow, these people watch lakorn in such detail and I was proud I noticed one flaw in the series. One point for me–Oh yea!
Some found it distracting, I think most still like the lakorn and are still ‘in’ to the Khun Chai Puttipat and Krong Kaew pair.
Back to the scene.
Khun Chai Pat:’What are we? Answer me what are we?’
Kaew struggles to answer him. ‘It’s just…’
Khun Chai Pat:’Just a marriage license that makes us husband and wife.’
Kaew:’I will quickly sign the divorce papers as soon as possible. I won’t postpone or delay the process at all.’
Khun Chai Pat:’So you really want to leave me as soon as possible.’–awww she doesn’t.
Kaew:’It’s not like that.’
Khun Chai Pat:”Then what do you want?’
Kaew:’You have done a lot for me. You have sacrifice yourself to protect me from danger. You are also caring for my father. I have always been the one who is receiving. I am taking an advantage of you. The thing I want to tell you is that I want to build myself up to have a foundation, to have dignity, to have everything better than what I have now. When that time comes, I want to repay you back.’
Khun Chai Pat playfully:’You are the most conceited and arrogant woman ever.’
Kaew:’A person must stand on their own two feet, they must be beneficial to other people, they can’t just depend on other people forever.’
Khun Chai Pat:’Every word you say is ‘other’ people. Have you never heard a husband and wife is one person according to the law.’
Kaew:’You keep saying that again.’
Khun Chai Pat:’Because it is the truth.’
He holds up his jade necklace from her neck. ‘Look at this, you are wearing my mother’s jade necklace which was intended to give to her daughter-in-law. Like this, how can we be other people to each other. Most importantly everything I have done is the responsibility of a husband.’
He holds her shoulders and stared into her eyes. ‘Your responsibility is to speak sweetly, act gentle, play the part well. Don’t forget, the hoodlums are after you, they looking for an opportunity to har
