I’m in awe how Ohm Pawat has captured the imagination of BL watchers around the world. Aside from He’s Coming to Me and Dew, the movie, he plays an admittedly ‘second lead’ in GMMTV’s 2020 gender-bender romcom/BL concoction entitled The Shipper – จิ้นนายกลายเป็นฉัน.
Joining Ohm are the two major characters being shipped by a pair of impressionable school girls. The fantasy BL couple àre First Kanaphan and Fluke Phusit. Both have been cast in previous dramas, but in this quasi-BL romantic-comedy, they are taking the spotlight.
Here’s the official teaser clip that made people suffer from nosebleed!
Ohm and First play brothers, but the body swap changed their relationship from familial to romantic. Will their ship sail?
16 year old Prigkhing Sureeyaret Yakaret will play the female gender-bending counterpart of First. She’s a relatively newcomer who was previously cast in Theory of Love and The Blacklist.
Ploy Kanyarat Ruangrung, 17, plays the other school girl.
While some have complained about the randomness and overhyped body swapping theme, I look forward to this drama because of the cast. A theme is as good as the actors and the twist and turns in the story.
