Hello! I am Soju, and I am starting an article series where I will be curating and recommending Thai dramas based on specific tags. Today's article will be surrounding the tag: "Arranged Marriage".
Most of the time, when I search for dramas, I search for specific things I want to watch at that time. For example: "possessive men", "rich female, poor male", and so on.
I'm sure that a lot of you are also like that too. That is why I thought that while promoting Thai dramas to more people here, I could also give like-minded people something new to watch. ^_^

Left with no choice, Madam Lamphao then focused her attention on Rojansnai, who also refused since she had a lover.
In order to force her older sister into marrying in her place, Romereuthai heartlessly revealed that Rojanasnai is not her real sister but has been taken care of by Madam Lamphao because of the goodness of her heart.

All the dramas that were mentioned in this article are either something that I have finished, am watching, or have captured my interest and so I plan to watch in the future.
