Yah Leum Chan is a Thai romantic drama lakorn that originally aired in 2014 on Channel 3. The lakorn stars Jesadaporn Pholdee (Tik), Anne Thongprasom, Saharat Sangkapricha (Kong), and Sririta Jensen (Rita).
Yah Leum Chan can be translated as “Forget me not” in English. The story is about the love of a man named Khemachad and a woman named Suriyawadee. They meet and fall in love since they are studying in the university. They promise to each other that they will get married after they graduate and Khemachad gives Suriyawadee a ring engraved with the word “Forget me not”. Unexpectedly, Suriyawadee’s family faces a financial crisis, and she has to quit studying from the university and marry an elderly man. Suriyawadee leaves Khemachad without saying anything, so he is very sad and angry.
After graudate from the university, Khemachad works very hard and becomes a successful business man, but he still could not love anyone else. Years later, Suriyawadee comes back to his life. Her husband passes away and she has to work in order to raise her two sons. Khemachad becomes her boss and he started revenging her. Khemachad uses the woman named Genlong in his game. Genlong does not know anything about his plan and she feels sad for what Khemachad does. Khemachad does not know the reason why Suriyawadee leaves him and he also does not know that she marry the elderly man only in name. That man actually wants Suriyawadee to marry Eua or his son, but Eua refuses. And later Eua regrets his decision and is trying to marry Suriyawadee again.
This lakorn was produced as a movie once in 1977 and as lakorn for 4 times in 1981, 1987, 1998, and 2014. I had a chance to watch the latest version only. Honestly I do not like the storyline. I do not understand why Suriyawadee do not just simply tell Khemachad the truth. This main couple annoyed me several times, but I still love the acting of Tik and Ann. I do love the support couple more. Genlong is a smart woman; I love how she deals with the problems in life. I love how relationship of Eua and Genlong develops.
If you want to watch a Thai drama lakorn, Yah Leum Chan can be your choice. This lakorn is quite new and I am sure you can find the version with English subtitle on the internet.
