Zee Pruk as Fighter in WhyRU
It takes a certain level of dedication to dive into a character, especially so if you portray a BL role and you’re straight. I think though, sexual preference should be minimized as a point of reference and assess an actor based on performance. Zee Pruk as Fighter epitomizes the jock.
And the deep friendship that exists between Zee and Saint actually works for the series rather than against it as some wants us to believe.

LINEtv ranking of the most viewed series as of March 10 2020
Discussing the merits of 3 BL shows – 2Gether, WhyRU, and UWMA.
First of all, congratulations that the top 3 are all BL series. It takes a lot of factors for success.
For 2getherseries grabbing #1 is a pleasant surprise and it validates the level of excitement people share for this drama and the cast.
UWMA series gets #2. I think because it is for the emotional rollercoaster ride viewers have had since episode 1.
I’m sure viewers must be curious for the #3 ranking of WHYRU but my initial explanation is how the drama narrative is presented. BL connoisseurs will appreciate its complexity But those new to the BL environment will find themselves a bit alienated with the mentions/tributes of common BL tropes. While the cast – for me – has the most complexity, the UWMA boys has the most demanding, thus the loyalty of viewers.
I think the dramas’ production crews and their confidence are reflected in how the drama presents itself and the kind of journeys the viewers are willing to take.
Fearless prediction? UWMA series will be remembered for the sentimental journey of love through time. While 2gether the series will keep on getting repeat views for the sheer pleasure it offers the viewers. WHYRU the series will encompass the genuine goodwill of the cast and will be acknowledged for the trailblazer that it truly is.

There’s plenty to celebrate this week, especially if you are a TharnType fan! The production team, led by author Mame just announced the pre-production of Season 2 of the popular series.
TharnType Season 2 announcement
According to many sources, Season 1 covers Books 1-2 of 5 volumes, therefore, there are plenty more from the original source. We have yet to find out if Tharn (Mew Suppasit) and Type (Gulf Kanawut) will have primary focus as before or if the new season will highlight other couples.

Gulf Kanawut, photo taken from his official Instagram account.
We made significant updates on Saint Suppapong and Gulf Kanawut profilers to add important events that are currently hounding the Thai BL scene. As some of you may know, Gulf has been receiving plenty of negative feedback as a result of his “personal life” related to his girlfriend. While we don’t like gossip, we are doing an investigation of BL trolls and how some online publication uses intrigues and scandals to generate views. Nothing new here, but we have observed a new level of toxicity and negativity online that target BL actors.

Zee Pruk – WhyRU Series
Zee plays Fighter in the said series. He likes Tutor (Saint) but struggles to show his feelings.
In retrospect, I find the scene with the name tagging (during the initiation) very revealing:
The coping mechanisms Fighter employs are many. I think this scene with the name tag is one of those cute moments that will define whatever relationship they will pursue. The chemistry between them is undeniable.
My friend tweeted as much:
The whole conversation is here.

Tommy plays Zon in WhyRU
Tommy Sittichok impresses in Episode 1 of WhyRU, the Series. His role requires him to do both comedy and intense drama, and he did not disappoint.
Here’s my review of Episode 1:
Tommy Sittichok is “pressured” to appear first. He is quite photogenic and his previous acting roles made him competent and convincing. From the time the series was announced, Tommy is already a personal bias of mine | read more |

2Gether the Series
While many may consider the plot of upcoming series 2Gether to be”generic”, I’m focusing on the onscreen chemistry of the main couple – Bright and Win.
Bright + Win as first time BL couple
I’m personally biased in favor of Bright Vachirawit. I think he is one passionate and dedicated GMMtv actor who has the talent. His costar Win Metawin looks promising as well.

Tommy & Jimmy, WhyRU
Above clip shows some sweet, romantic moments between Tommy and Jimmy – playing Zon and Saifah in WhyRU the series.
While not as popular as Saint-Zee (who plays the other main couple), they are expected to bring in their own unique take on love between boys and this clip shows what they are capable of.
Below is the equally romantic clip featuring Saint and Zee!

The special episode of WhyRU is both available on LINEtv and Youtube. On YT, there are 4 clips. Part 1 has some issues with the subs but the other parts are fine.
Cheewin Thanamin, the director, tries to explain the series through his observations and the set of activities aimed to train his actors. He basically has to train all of them since they are new. With Saint and Tommy exception no one else has done series or full-length film for that matter.

Game On, the Series
So Yacht Surat has a new drama. Game On, the Series appears to have multiple couples. Here are two more posters!
No details yet even from their official Facebook page– just some posters to generate buzz.
The best twin – AJ and JJ
AJ Chayapol and JJ Chayakorn have been on my radar for months. AJ made a lot of BL fans fuming mad by his rendition of a disturbed third wheeler in Dark Blue Kiss.
Here’s hoping we get to see both in a BL drama soon!
The famous lip balm commercial
Are you ready for The Shipper? First Kanaphan who is a GMMtv contract artist has done some high-profile drama of recent seasons.
But this is his first BL role – excluding that cute lip balm commercial!
EN of Love series release new poster!
The latest poster of EN of Love confirms the absence of Boun Noppanut and Bon Phongsakorn from the said series. I have not read any news whether both actors are to play parts on a different project nor the reason for the casting changes.

Zon-Saifah team of Jimmy Karn and Tommy Sittichok competes for screentime with Saint and Zee.
Yet the special episode of WhyRU indicates the fair division of the love teams. I like the “cool and collected” attitude of Jimmy Karn during his interview!

Bright Wachiravit, lead 2Gether, the Series showing his phone with Win Metawin, his costar.
So, 2Gether the Series from GMthe Mtv is getting buzz that the top Thai network is not promoting the series well enough. Though, I’ve seen plenty of interviewsinterfaceinterfans complain about subs.And here we have Bright Vachirawit’s profile!
According to dir. Aam Anusorn, there are plenty of shitty, messed up contracts for Thai BL actors and some enterprising agents and talent managers.
Here’s the Tweet:
No, the contract mostly the agent always right. But don't blame the actors, the contracts very tricky. Some actors never know how much exactly he got. Like he can get B100k per job but the agent took B80k baht and tell the actor the client pay B20k then they sharing money again.

We have an interview with him coming up! [You may wanna read our first interview]
The outspoken director has a new BL documentary that will feature an inside look at the blossoming Thai BL scene.
Fluke Pongsakorn plays Mork in the upcoming My Ride the Series.
In a follow-follow up interview, dir. Nam was reported to have asked all auditioning actors a certain query:
Dir. Nam was reported to ask the actors’opinionsn of LGBT. What exactly was the question?
The question was “What do you think about BL Series?”.
As there are lots of actors and actresses joining the audition, having to perform in this genre of Series might go against their true identities. As a result, we want to be confident that they will be open-minded and able to express the characters well by disregarding the gender.
