suddenly transformed into a very handsome young man, a lot more handsome than Indrajaya.

Lutung Kasarung        : I’m a prince from a kingdom far away. I was cursed to be a monkey because of a

                        Mistake I committed. I could regain my true form only if there’s a girl who would
                        Be willing to be my wife.

Purbasari              : Really? I do not believe it. It’s so impossible.

Lutung Kasarung        : Yes indeed the truth as it.
