“Chan mai koey kit wa, khon ti tham hai chan sia jai ti soot, ker khon tee chan rak mark tee soot”
(I’ve never thought that the one one who hurt me most was the one I loved the most)
This is not a new song, but I’ve stumbled upon it this rainy Tuesday evening. Let’s check out a few epic scenes from the MV.
The girl’s rival bandages her injured hand. She even smiles to her in the locker room.
When she questions her cheating boyfriend, he has the cheek to scold her for not trusting him.
Can I say, typically Thai? I don’t think I need to translate the rest. The singer (also the protagonist in the MV) is Vorakan Rojchanawat, better known by her nickname Punch. The title of this song is Ying Kwa Sia Jai (More Than Sad) makes it a bit run-of-the-mill. However, the use of “sia raeng” or wasted energy/effort at the beginning of the song really works for me. The melody flows like a flood of tears. Beautifully composed. In reality, the ending can be a lot more violent than this. Die hard romantics out there, watch your back if you fall in love in Thailand. You may be sabotaged by your “best friend”.
