Contract Marriage romance Thai drama is probably one of the most popular genres that most international fans are into. Although it's already 2021, the earlier marriage dramas seem to have the more intriguing storylines than those of the recent ones.
In fact, the recent ones, if not remakes, have taken ideas from older marriage Lakorns. We like to stress that out because the top rated hit contract marriage Thai drama we'll talk about is One31's 2015 series, Leh Ratree (A Woman's Trickery).
A Must Watch Contract Marriage Thai Drama
There's no other reason why Leh Ratree is up at the top of our list than it to be a must watch with its intriguing plot, as well as the undeniable chemistry of the main leads.
It is a story of two individuals who lived in completely different worlds, but their loves got entangled because of someone's irresponsibility and selfish desires.
Sake, played by Sean Jindachot, is a President of a company. He's got a younger sister, but he was expected to bear their family's next heir. He's already married to a woman whom he was so in love with. But his mom was skeptical about her.
His mom urged them them to bear a child already, but the woman kept on postponing it. But it later turned out that she couldn't bear a child.
On the other hand, Kate, played by Esther Supreeleela, is a bright 18-year old who's already planning to live a better future with her childhood friend turned boyfriend. But her hopes came crushing down when his dad got into a huge debt.
His dad, an employee in Sake's company, got busted for embezzling the company's money. Sake was determined to put him behind bars, but his dad suddenly offered her daughter, Kate, to bear the heir they wanted.
The Main Leads
On top of the fascinating and intriguing plot, the undeniable chemistry of Esther and Sean made this marriage drama even more appealing to watch. This drama made them a Koojin, or what they call as OTP (one true pair) or fantasy couple.
This Lakorn is Esther's first break back then. She started her career with Ch3 and transferred to GMM with Leh Ratree as her first drama.
The audience loved this Thai drama so much that it became popular. Sean and Esther did 2 more dramas together, but then something allegedly happened during Ngao Asoke, their 3rd last drama together.
Esther was paired with Push, her then new Koojin. She and Sean never paired again on-screen. In our opinion, Sean is definitely Esther's best on-screen partner.
Leh Ratree is actually a mix of both contract and forced marriage. Kate and her family were pretty much forced to deal with Sake's family as they were left with no choice. Sake's family only wanted for her to bear the child and then she'd be free after.
For your sake, we'll give you both positive and negative reviews of this drama.
