I stumbled upon this lakorn on a website and read that it was to to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Channel 3. It was said that all four stories are connected together, but each tells a different story. So Thara Himalaya is the first of the four series.
It tells of four quadruplets, Din (Mark Prin Suparat), Lom (Boy Pakorn Chatborirak), Fai (Barry Nadech Kugimiya), and Nam (Kimberley Ann Voltemas). Nam is the only daughter of the family. Her three brothers are extremely overprotective of her. She is a family doctor at a hospital. One day, she receives a patient, who is badly wounded and injured. She does not know, but he is actually Prince Phuwanate (Aum Atichart Chumnanont), of a country called Parawat. Prince Phuwanate was injured in an attempted assassination that almost took his life. The people who wanted to be king of Parawat even went as far as to performing plastic surgery on a man to look exactly as Phuwanate. Nam helps Phuwanate to regain his mental and physical health slowly.
As Phuwanate does not want others to know of his real identity, he lies to Dr. Nam, saying he lost his memory. Nam helps him by giving him the name Pupen and offering him a job at her brother, Fai’s farm. Nam also makes shirts for him in different colors that read “My Name is Pupen”.
When Nam gets to be friends with Dr. Nat (Kong Sorawit Suboon), her three brothers try to stop him from courting her, and along the way, they think he is gay. Dr. Nat is sympathized by Nam’s friend, a fellow co-worker, Pam (Ae Maneerat Kumoun).
On the farm, Pupen realizes that he has fallen in love with Nam. On a rainy night, Pupen pretends to be drunk and Nam takes care of him. When Nam finds out that Prince Phuwanate was going to hire a woman to be his wife on his journey back to Parawat, she secretly gets jealous and immediately volunteers to pretend to be his wife. They encounter many dangerous obstacles, of which her brothers also had to go to Parawat for the sake of her safety.
After all is solved, Nam realizes that it is tradition in Parawat to have more than one wife. She does not agree on a man with numerous wives and therefore breaks ties with Prince Phuwanate, although both love each other. When Prince Phuwanate is crowned Prince once again, he informs his father about this marriage policy, but his father says there is nothing he can do. He then gives up his crown, so he no longer has to take on the tradition and goes back to Thailand to find Nam.
Since he is no longer Prince and does not have to follow such traditions, Nam agrees to marry him. On their wedding day, Prince Phuwanate’s parents surprise him, telling him, they will abandon the policy for him, because the country of Parawat needs him to be the future king. The future King Phuwanate and Queen Nam greet their fellow citizens in Parawat.
After this series, I completely fell in love with Aum! His looks 🙂 This also broaden my likes for Thai lakorns.
