Pope Ruk Epi. 12 (End) English Subtitles COMPLETED!!!!

We are finally at the end of our long journey, and it was a wonderful journey indeed! This lakorn was special for me as it marks my very first time to complete a series in English Subs. As you know, I began this blog with detailed screen captions of lakorns. So with this being my first subbing protect, I will always remember Pope Ruk! This lakorn has all the elements of a great story.

First, let me start with the wonderful team of actors and the entire production team. Each and everyone of them did a great job. The actors did an amazing job in their roles. They were all so convincing with the the love story between a human and a spirit. The character development in this lakorn is perfect. As a viewer, you can relate to Yeel, to Num, to Nan, to Nubdao and even to Popethorn! Let’s be honest, as humans we all had those emotions that these characters harbored and felt.  I know what’s it like to be lost and alone like Num. I felt the grief like Yeel before. I felt rejected just like Nan. And I endured humiliation like Nubdao in the past and I’m no stranger to anger just like Popethorn!

On top of the amazing cast and production, the cinematography , the pacing, and storyline of this lakorn was beautifully shot and done. The special effects and the costumes were on point! The pacing of this lakorn was good, there were no dragging scenes nor such prolonged conflicts.

This was a beautiful feel good story with many lessons for us to learn from. The first lesson is that hatred is more dangerous than fire. It will totally destroy you and everyone around you! Harboring hate and resentment does nothing to prosper your life, but the only thing it does is blacken your heart banishing you to live in an unhappy dark place just like Popethorn. Then, the most important lesson that we should learn is that forgiveness is key to EVERYTHING. It will free your hearts and put you in a happy and beautiful place. Life is too damn short to live negatively.

So my darklings, I bid you to LOVE love love and FORGIVE much!!!

Let’s begin!

Pope Ruk Epi. 11 English Subtitles COMPLETED!!

Aww sniff sniff.. it’s so sad that Yeel can’t remember everything that he and NumRin went through! But .. I remember him saying that some things are remembered with the heart. And so we shall watch on, but don’t forget your tissues! I’ve been wiping boogers and tears with my shirt all this time. Hehe.

Wow.. One of the most dumbest character in this lakorn turns out to be Nubdao! What a dumb ass for bowing down to a guy who she knows is dangerous and vindictive. Not only has she done all his dirty work, now she is framed too as the master mind in it all. Okay, I’ll admit, I felt a bit sorry for her because NumRin was one of those mean girls to her, but that’s still no reason to turn murderous and nasty! You know, her name “Nubdao” is very pretty, it means counting stars. So I find it so ironic how a girl with such a pretty name can be so evil and menacing!

So.. now that NumRin gets her body back, I wonder what’s going to happen with Nan in the end? Will she and Yeel end up together?? You know.. I really have to give this lakorn a lot of props! This is the only lakorn yet that I can’t figure out what’s going to happen in the end? I really thought that Numrin will be the one who won’t be able to remember Yeel and their time together, but I was so wrong! This lakorn is not predictable at all.. and that’s a wonderful thing!!

Pope Ruk Epi. 10 English Subtitles COMPLETED!

You know, I don’t really care for Nan that much because of her constant sulking face and her oh-so boring way, however I am feeling very badly for her. I think it’s pretty unfair that in the beginning, Yeel led her on by acting as if he likes her in order to get ghost girl NumRin jealous. And because of this, Yai (Granny) decided that they should get married. And of course, we all know that Yeel didn’t do such a good job at letting Yai know that he doesn’t even love Nan.

And now that he and NumRin are supposedly a “couple..” he’s avoiding Nan and acting pretty rude and distant to her. As far as I know, (aside from being so bore-some) Nan did nothing wrong at all!

Matter of fact, if I were Yeel, I’d chose Nan because a.) she has always been there for him, b.) she is good to his grandma, c.) she loves him, d.) she’s a good cook! and e.) she’s more down to earth and lastly, she risked her life to save his!!!

Let’s face it, if NumRin wasn’t a ghost, she’d be a high and mighty self-centered socialite! She would never have given Yeel a second look, let alone want to be with him!

So with all her privileges of being a spoiled rich brat stripped away, she is but a helpless lonely spirit, damsel in distress! Well, I know that they are fated to be together, but still, it’s not fair how Nan is being treated! Ahhh….

Let’s begin! On with the subtitles!
