Plot edit

Serena Wijitranukul returns to Bangkok following her mysterious disappearance: everyone is extremely shocked including her best friend, Blair Waranon. Blair soon finds out that Serena had slept with her boyfriend, Nate Achirawat, the night of her disappearance. Meanwhile, Serena begins dating Dan Chanaseri while Nate struggles with his feelings for Blair. The two try to salvage what's left of their relationship, only leaving Blair to lose her virginity to Nate's best friend, Jak Benjakij, instead.
