Raeng Ngao (Thai: แรงเงา) is a Thai film and drama-revenge lakhon aired on Channel 3. Since 1986 the story proved popular and has been subject to four remakes.


The story revolves around a young woman named Mutta (มุตตา), the naive and kind-hearted twin sister of Munin (มุนินทร์), who one day went to Bangkok to find a job. There she met Vikit (วีกิจ) who later became her co-worker. Vikit and Mutta became friends, but she didn't correspond his feelings for her and that left Vikit heartbroken. When she met her boss named Chenphop (เจนภพ) she fell in love with him. But Chenphop, a vain and shallow womanizer, already had a wife and three children.

When Chenphop's wife Nopnapha (นพนภา) found out that her husband was having an affair with Mutta, she publicly humiliated her and forced her husband to stop seeing her. Then Mutta realized that her lover would not stand for her, breaking all the promises he had made to her. She fell into a deep depression and went back to her hometown where she committed suicide. On that same day her twin sister Munin came back home from the States. She blamed herself for having been one of the causes of her sister's death and used her identical looks to exact revenge from those she perceived had wronged her sister. Thus she went to Bangkok and pretended to be Mutta.


The original lakhon was aired in 1986 under the name Raeng Heung (แรงหึง).[1] Owing to its success there were further remakes in 1988 (แรงหึง),[2] 2001 (แรงเงา)[3] and 2012 (แรงเงา).[4]
