Why RU: The Series – เพราะรักใช่ป่าว (2020)

Update: This most anticipated series is to broadcast starting January 17, 2020 – that’s every Friday, with Episode 0 (sort of intro and other tidbits before actual drama narrative). A week later, is the initial episode.

The series is to broadcast at LINEtv and ONE HD31. English subs are provided simultaneously.

Let’s discuss the major characters:

  • Tutor-Fighter: Saint and Zee are cast respectively. Tutor (Saint Suppapong) is reserved almost cerebral in how he deals with people. He is the silent type who usually reason out his actions. Fighter (Zee Panich) is his exact opposite who lets his emotions rule instead of reason. Their first encounter is a bit regrettable yet it took some time before they finally settle down and assess what sort of relationship, if at all, they will pursue. Are they attracted to each other? Or they simply annoy one another?
  • Zon-Saifah: Tommy and Jimmy are chosen to play the couple. Saifah (Jimmy Karn) is a popular musician and is a bit on the naughty side. This charming, lanky fellow loves to be at the center of attention. Zon (Tommy Sittichok) is shy and reserved yet can be quite stubborn when he is challenged. He is also a sci-fi writer and like Tutor is more into mind games rather than being physical. A few moments together seem enough for both Saifah and Zon to discover that there is more to their relationship than just playing music.

Update: Watch the interview of Saint by Dara Daily.

Previously, Saint answers an interview, with the question: How were the love scenes?

Actually, we brainstormed. We talked to the director that we wanna try this or that. I won’t say who’s gonna be what in the series, but please stay tuned because love scenes in this series are very important. | source |

Update: 9 Jan 2020 – Another video was released and the awesomeness continues!

There is also the news of a crossover (or guest appearances) between TharnType actors and WhyRU.

Update! A behind the scene clip that can drive you nuts!

Here are the links to the new teaser, for both local and interface:

From the production team on the January 2020 broadcast:

Actually I want to air on March or April. It’s more relief but the more you wait, the more you get tired so I decided in this way. It’s gonna be tough work but I know you’re all are ready and I won’t give up because you’re all been fighting for us a lot.

Update: The WhyRU Channel at Youtube has started to do Chapter introductions!

Update: Watch the teaser trailer that can whet anyone’s appetite for this show! It has already garnered more than a million views already!

Reactions: The scenes featuring Saint and Zee are intense and amazing to watch. I would not be surprised by the way fans react to these scenes. They would either get depressed (because of Saint’s previous love team) or feel excited about how Zee plays his role to a T and bulls-eye his way to Saint’s character’s heart (is that making sense?).

This is getting to be more exciting than I originally expected.

Update: The drive to push Saint and Zee to the BL stratosphere is relentless!

Look at the series latest media promo!

Why the RU production team has come up with a video clip as cast intro! And the Saint-Zee tandem dominates the scene.

The Zee-Saint tandem continues to heat up!

After watching Reminders and seeing Perth and Saint play a couple, it’s understandable how some fans are upset over the new tandem. But I don’t think it should be ‘treated’ as something personal. The guys are working and if fans are truly supportive, they need to overcome their own biases and support Saint and Zee, as well.

Reportedly based on a novel, this new Thai BL series, Why Are You? is under the helm of filmmaker and scriptwriter, New Siwaj Sawatmaneekul. There are – at least – 12 new, fresh faces in the cast. Among them is Saint of Love by Chance fame.

Tommy and Saint. Are we seeing a new BL tandem anytime soon? Or is Saint going to be paired with someone else?

Among the cast is Love by Chance lead Saint Suppapong Udomkaewkanjana, who undisputedly captured a lot of hearts as he portrayed Pete in Love by Chance opposite Perth Tanapon Sukhumpantanasan, who plays his romantic interest, Ae.

Saint, who figured prominently in Love by Chance, is a most-sought-after actor by fans. Zee, a newly cast actor in this series, is reported to have expressed his desire to team up with Saint. While fans of Perth (Saint’s co-star in Love by Chance) may not approve of it, Zee remains honest about his feelings. Way to go Zee!

My personal picks! A few first impressions.

Described in his Instagram account as model-actor-soldier, Tommy Sittichok Pueakpoolpol is not tall like many of the aspiring actors who took part in the audition process. However, the height appears immaterial when it comes to the looks department. Hopefully, he’ll be competent as an actor too!

I would think dir. New saw something about Tommy. As you can see, just a change of hairstyle, he can alter his looks and perhaps his character? We’ll have to wait and see! At this point, he’s a personal bias already!

A current commercial model and aspiring actor, what appears previously as a nerd looking youngster have blossomed into a charming teen – that’s Jimmy Karn Kritsanaphan for you!

Reported as one of the leads in the new TV series, Zee Pruk Panich looks so manly and a bit muscular, yet everyone can see the baby fat still! If he’s going to partner with Saint, it would be explosive!

When someone is nicknamed Toytoy with another of the same ‘toy’ then expect someone awesomely, and he is! Early vids featuring this young guy (Toy Thanaphat) appear goofy and may possess some comedic qualities in him. Hope dir. New can harness his talents in this series!

That’s it for now. I’ll be constantly updating this page for more casting news!
