"I wanted to see you and tell you that no matter how many insults you throw at me, I know that I'm worth more than that. Just a stranger telling me I'm worthless, it doesn't make me feel small. I'm sorry if that disappoints you. But my relationship, my choice."
Gorya to Roselyn

"The Present Perfect" is the eighth episode of GMMTV's F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers. The episode was broadcast on February 12, 2022 on GMM 25. It was followed by the ninth episode of the series on February 19. Kay Lertsittichai and Pansa Vosbein made their debut in the episode.

Gorya's family rejects Roselyn's offer, despite their dire straits. Her parents return to the countryside. Later, Thyme moves across the street from Gorya. Unbeknownst to the two, Roselyn has a surprise for Thyme's birthday.


Roselyn offers Gorya's family money in exchange for her leaving Thyme alone. Gorya rejects it, but Roselyn increases the number until Busaba intervenes. After Roselyn leaves, Gorya's father reveals that his company has gone out of business, which leaves the family with no income. Meanwhile on Ren's yacht, Thyme announces to his friends that he will be pursuing Gorya "for real." Over the next few days, Thyme has a hard time finding Gorya. Eventually, he asks Kavin for a favor. Kavin learns everything from Kaning, including that Gorya's parents have returned to their hometown. Thyme later confronts his mother about closing Gorya's father's company. She remains unrepentant and refuses to fix anything.

Tia asks her mother to give Thyme "freedom in his love life," reminding her that she forced her into a "loveless marriage." Roselyn criticizes her for not appreciating her life and then orders Tia back to Singapore. Meanwhile, Gorya is exasperated with Thyme for buying the house across the street. He insists that he wants to take care of her, but she is not sure he can take care of himself. Thyme spends the first night calling Gorya over to help him. The next night, Thyme has his friends over so that he does not bother Gorya again. At home, Gorya receives a dress from Tia to wear to Thyme's birthday party. Thyme then suddenly barges in. Gorya pushes him out, before finding the dress now stained.

Gorya takes the dress to a dry cleaners, where an employee attempts to overcharge her. A delivery guy steps in and the employee agrees to charge her the regular fee. Later at work, Gorya thinks about Roselyn calling her not "worthy" of Thyme. Kaning guesses that Gorya is worried about what to give Thyme for his birthday. She and Gawao point out inexpensive gifts that they love. Kaning advises her to just "put care into it." Gorya then states that she has seen Thyme has changed since moving in next door. The next day at school, Gorya overhears the F4 talking. Thyme reveals that he waits every night for Gorya to go to sleep and then heads home. She finally hits him when he calls her "stupid" for not figuring out his plan.

While throwing out the trash, Gorya meets the same delivery guy. He calls himself Talay and also attends Kocher. Seeing that she has marked over a cardboard cutout of Thyme, Talay encourages her to take out her frustration on it as well. The two run away laughing when a teacher spots them. After Talay drops her home, Gorya decides to head over to Thyme's house to return Tia's dress. She hands the dress to a servant, confirming that she will not be attending. She then runs into Ren, who takes her somewhere to talk. He believes that she will go, despite her doubts. That night, Gorya returns home. Thyme has prepared dinner with an omelet saying "sorry." Forgiving Thyme, they sit down to eat with Glakao.

After dinner, Gorya walks Thyme over to place. He keeps stalling until Gorya finally realizes he is waiting for the time. Thyme closes his eyes and Gorya counts down to midnight, his birthday. He then stares deeply into her eyes. As they depart, Gorya agrees to go to his party. The next day, Kaning and Glakao help Gorya bake cookies for Thyme's present. That night at the party, Gorya confronts Roselyn saying "Just a stranger telling me I'm worthless, it doesn't make me feel small." The F3 praise her afterwards. Kavin then picks up Gorya, causing her to shout. Thyme comes over and she wishes him a happy birthday. On stage, Roselyn surprises the pair by making an announcement about Thyme's fiancée, Lita.
