Nabi, My Step Darling Thai Drama Review

Hello, it’s been awhile…

Hope you all are doing well and are staying safe and healthy!

Anyways…

I’ve watch this a while back and binge watched this Thai drama again this past weekend…

Btw I apologize for being behind schedule on posting my review…things have been hectic but will proceed with this review since it had been a long time coming…. Especially that I just had to touch a little bit more, in order to make sure I gave all of my thoughts on this…

I hope you give this a chance especially since this will be my first ever Thai TV drama review for 2021!!! Woohoo! You can say I am getting quite into Thai right now while I am waiting for some dramas that have my interest on Viki.com but are not fully available yet because they are locked…Huhuhu…

But I happened to come across some Thai shows that captured my interest from the trailers and fanmade videos I saw both on Netflix and Youtube! Too bad there is no Thai dramas available yet on Viki.com…

BTW, I did not forget about the Thai Drama The Comments, which I mentioned in one of previous IG stories, I will rewatch it and will work on its review soon especially since the complete series has now been up with eng subtitles months ago…I am just currently working on a few other reviews first…

Anyways been a long time coming and finally presenting my first ever Thai TV drama Review in a while…

PRESENTING….

Nabi, My Step Darling Thai Drama Review

Disclaimer: Pictures of the show, cast are not mine. And just add, info on the cast I got from Wikipedia, DramaList and Asian wiki. ✌️

First off… please do not take what I say seriously… just with a grain of salt, like with music. I do not have a professional degree in film, literature, and television. But I love movies, books and tv shows. Most especially if they capture my interest somehow.

Despite the lack of degree on this area, I will still do this Thai drama review as a Tv show lover and a Thai drama lover….

And just to clarify too, sorry if at some points I might run on with my words or have any grammatical errors… but I will be honest about my thoughts and feelings in this review.

Oooh… Just a slight tidbit… Nabi, My Step Darling is also known as Darling In Law, Step Darling and Nabi, I Will Not Love You

Anyways Nabi, My Step Darling can be found in Youtube on the Thai channel GMMTV. 

To begin with the review, I will start with the cast of Nabi, My Step Darling …Fah Yongwaree Anilbol, Joss Way-ar Sangngern, and Nat Myria Benedetti…

Fah Yongwaree Anilbol is a Thai actress who was originally interested in aviation. In the entertainment world she is considered as a all-rounding in acting and as an MC. She previously worked with Channel 3 and has become an artist under GMMTV since 2021.

In Nabi, My Step Darling, Fah Yongwaree Anilbol plays Nabi. The main female protagonist, who is searching and investigating her sister’s disappearing while trying to find evidence and proof that her sister wasn’t the culprit in Kawin’s mother’s death.

Joss Way-ar Sangngern is a Thai actor and model under GMMTV. He is well known for his role as Neo in 2019’s 3 Will Be Free..

In Nabi, My Step Darling, Joss Way-ar Sangngern plays Kawin aka Win, who returns immediately to Thailand to find out whether his mother’s death was accidental or was murdered. Initially blames Nabi’s sister, Sirin, and his father for his mother’s death.

Nat Myria Benedetti is a Thai singer, actress, model and Mc.  She is born from a Swiss father of Italian descent and a Thai mother. Even though she started out as an actress at an early age and still acts in many Thai dramas, movies and stage productions, she is best known as a talented singer.

In Nabi, My Step Darling, Nat Myria Benedetti plays Weeranat, who is Kawin’s aunt and the sister to his mother, Waree.  She does not have a great relationship with Waree, who verbally and emotionally abuses her…thus developing into deep resentment and hatred. She is deeply in love and obsessed with Pichet, who is Kawin’s father and her sister Waree’s husband. She is the main antagonist.

Now I will give a slight recap of this Thai Drama… Nabi, My Step Darling

I will try not to expound too much and will keeps this as short as I possibly can, so I won’t spoil anything even though I most likely did in the characters section and summary recap of this report…

Anyways Nabi, My Step Darling …starts of with a cute moment with a butterfly between the main pair Kawin and Nabi…just before things get explosive…

To dig deeper on this…

Kawin is the son of Pichet and Waree. Pichet is the owner of DUBAI CLUB which is under the management of Sirin…Nabi’s sister.  Waree believes that Sirin is Pichet’s mistress because of the lies Waree’s sister Weeranat told her, unaware that Weeranat had fallen deeply in love with Pichet. Because of Weeranat’s lies, Waree grows more paranoid and soon after Waree is found dead, and Nabi’s sister Sirin has disappeared without a trace…

Because of this Nabi and Kawin has falling out which isn’t totally explained but what is clear is before Waree’s death, Kawin had confessed his love to Nabi who rejects him despite her having feelings for him… And then upon the death of his mom and not wanting to deal with his father…goes aboard…

While…Nabi who sees Pichet as a benefactor begins working in the same position as her lost sister…mainly to find clues to her sister’s disappearance…as well as proving her sister’s innocence in Waree’s death.

Then, Kawin soon comes back to find out whether his mom’s death was accidental or was murder… and upon his return his has resentment towards Nabi who seems to be “close” to his father…stirring feelings of jealously as well as the fact that although he has some doubts, he still suspects Nabi’s sister has something to do with his mom’s death…

Anyways…

Now I will really start this review…

First off, Nabi, My Step Darling has 22 episodes with Fah Yongwaree Anilbol, Joss Way-ar Sangngern, and Nat Myria Benedetti…as the main leads…

Also, as I mentioned before, is also known as Darling In Law, Step Darling and Nabi, I Will Not Love You

Okay Nabi, My Step Darling is definitely a revenge drama! Very intense and explosive and I also get a kind of sexy vibe from the show too especially since the actors and actresses in this show are very undeniably attractive.

Nabi, My Step Darling is such an interesting and somewhat well-thought-out Thai drama in my opinion!

It brought many emotions out of me…. I was happy, then irritated, sad, disappointed, frustrated then amused, then giddy, then annoyed, angry, then giddy and frustrated again!…

Anyways…

I found Nabi, My Step Darling interesting because of how the writers has blended in a couple of themes to tell the story…

Such as the concept of…

Truth vs. Love…

Anger vs Love…

Hatred vs Love…

Anger and Resentment stemming from Misunderstandings…

Etc etc…

Anyways with both Nabi and Kawin have conflicting goals…besides the juicy fact that Kawin had once confessed his love to Nabi but was rejected by her but either way they consider eachother as their first loves… Especially since Nabi did in fact has feeling for Kawin even though she had rejected him. They will keep running and clashing into eachother. Thus, will take a while for the misunderstanding between them…caused by family tragedy… to be resolved… While working things out by because “reluctant” teammates in finding the truth and justice will be revealed as the story unfolds…. Feelings are somewhat rekindled despite bottling it down due too the craziness of the situation between their families with the possibility that murder is involved.

Will not expound any more than this, just so I will not spoil too much. But go and check it out …. 😊 😉

Now major spoiler…even though it might be obvious…

But if you don’t want to be spoiled, please do skip this next paragraph and go to the next next one…

While Nat Myria Benedetti who plays the main antagonist Weeranat… I was blown away by the emotions she put me through… She had done so many horrible things because of her obsessive love for Kawin’s father Pichet and her hatred for her sister Waree which slowly extended through Nabi whom Weeranat felt was becoming a growing threat to her love for Pichet and for Kawin who is obsessively thought of as a “son.” But at the same time, I pitied her because she never really had her own love from her parents and especially her sister Waree. She does not have a great relationship with Waree, who verbally and emotionally abuses her…thus developing into deep resentment and hatred, which grew even more when she felt that Waree stole Pichet away from her… Despite my feelings of pity towards Weeranat, she is in the wrong to harm others and for even resorting to killing people especially her sister in order to “get back what belongs to her” and to get the love she was always lacking. And not to give anymore away…a lot of revelations were revealed in relation to her…which will make sure somewhat pity her, understand why she became obsessively crazy but believe she should still be countable for her crimes… Will not, reveal anymore than that…

Anyways…

For now, I want to mention what I was not fond of…

Like mentioned back in my earlier Thai drama reviews…specifically…Hua Jai Sila, which is an awesome drama by the way! Hands down!

Anyways… as I was saying…. like Hua Jai Sila and Leh Ratree…. Nabi, My Step Darling it shares one main thing that I was not fond of in the lakorns I have watched so far… even though I like both Hua Jai Sila & Leh Ratree…this Thai Drama Nabi, My Step Darling is definitely one of my favorite Lakorns!

Anyways…that main thing, I was not fond of which is the only downside for me even though like Leh Ratree, I know Nabi, My Step Darling is also considered a Slap Kiss drama… I am not fond of the man handling, the grabbing and aggressive actions made by the male leads upon the female leads…which I notice in the lakorns I’ve watched so far…  Not trying to be offensive but that part just makes me uncomfortable… I know for sure that I will likely never get used that! It is a con for me.

I don’t approve of manhandling but despite that, I do like Thai dramas and will continue to like them, I know for sure that will not change…will expound more later…

But back to my review…I got to say…the chemistry between the main leads… Fah Yongwaree Anilbol, Joss Way-ar Sangngern is undeniable! Very intense! The banter between them was fun, amusing to watch but also quite steamy because you can feel the tension between them… The growing attraction they have for eachother or at least the attraction they do not want to admit they still have for one another despite the resentment they might have towards eachtother because of respective families’ “tragic” history with eachother…

On the others…I felt the supporting and minor characters did well in their roles whether they are there to guide the main leads or give them trouble…

Anyways…

 What I like about Lakorns I’ve watched so far…Hua Jai Sila, Happy Birthday, Bai Mai Tee Plid Plew, The Judgement, Payu Sai aka Destiny of Us and now Nabi, My Step Darling …. The writers of lakorns, ability to use complex storyline and themes that can be quite controversial or complicated but still well executed and can bring a roller coaster of emotions to you! And this in why I will continue to like Thai dramas / lakorns despite disliking the manhandling in them… Of course, I do not approve of manhandling…but despite that I will continue liking Thai dramas!

And Nabi, My Step Darling is definitely one of the Thai dramas I like despite that, and I highly recommend it!

Anyways if you made it up to here… Thank you so much for taking the time to read my review on the Nabi, My Step Darling Thai Drama series. Hopefully this review gets you interested in Nabi, My Step Darling and in Thai dramas and shows!
