Citizen of a Kind (Crime, Drama)


When Deok Hee’s laundromat catches fire, securing a bank loan becomes her only hope of getting her business back on its feet. So, when a bank calls to offer her a generous loan, she considers it a blessing from the heavens and promptly signs the papers. However, the offer turns out to be a scam, and Deok Hee discovers she has fallen victim to voice phishing. What was supposed to be her lifeline ends up pushing her further into despair.

As fate would have it, Jae Min, the scammer, calls again, revealing he is now trapped by a gang. With the police unable to assist her, Deok Hee and her friends decide to take matters into their own hands. They set out to hunt down the thieves, rescue Jae Min, and recover her money.

Unfulfilled "moei" demands retribution, and now it threatens August's life. "The Promised" takes viewers on a whirlwind adventure, delving into Thai culture and traditions, particularly the traditional Thai dance called Manorah, as it showcases a mother's fight to protect her only son.
