You Had Me At Hello [Short Film]

Described by its production team – Capture Production – as a thesis movie project, You Had Me At Hello is a tale of young love between a slightly older boy named Tone (Jerasit Sukumpantanasarn) and Pun (Patiphan Siangphairo).

When Pun’s older sister began to worry about her brother’s poor academic performance, she seeks the help of Tone and serves as his tutor. Both boys treated this with a certain detachment. But after a few meetings, it seems they enjoy each other’s company. They became friends. And perhaps, something more.

There is nothing unique about the premise of the story. It could happen in real life. In fact, I think it happens quite a lot. What makes this short film (25 minutes) watchable is the notable chemistry between the actors.

Not sure where they got the inspiration for the title, but there’s an old Tom Cruise film named Jerry Maguire, and Cruise’s co-star Renee Zellweger delivered that line.

Official Trailer SOTUS: The Series

The series is based on an online novel, “SOTUS พี่ว้ากตัวร้ายกับนายปีหนึ่ง” by BitterSweet.

SOTUS: The Series (Thai: พี่ว้ากตัวร้ายกับนายปีหนึ่ง) is a 2016 Thai LGBT drama produced by GMMTV Ltd., and directed by Uphold Tradition, starring Prachaya Ruangroj and Perawat Sangpotirat. It was filmed primarily in Thailand.

The first 8 episodes aired between August 20th, 2016 and October 8th, 2016. After the passing of Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the series was ordered to stop airing during the 30 day official mourning period. The remaining eight episodes were eventually shown between November 19th, 2016 and January 14th, 2017, effectively delaying the finale from its originally intended airdate of December 3rd, 2016. All episodes aired every Saturday on GMM Grammy – GMM One, with repeat episodes airing on Line TV

Plot: The “Gear” – or cogwheel – is the symbol of the Faculty of Engineering. It is part of a system of cogwheels which power and run a device (e.g. a clock). If one gear fails the device stops working. Wearing the “Gear” symbol signifies being a student of the Faculty of Engineering. However, in order to get one, all engineering freshmen must first undergo the S.O.T.U.S. (acronym for Seniority, Order, Tradition, Unity, and Spirit) system.

The third-year senior student Arthit (Perawat Sangpotirat), is the head hazer and often abuses the power afforded to him by the S.O.T.U.S system, making the freshmen do things against the rules. Freshmen students are practically powerless to complain or resist any orders given to them by their seniors. Arthit was seemingly unstoppable until Kongpob (Prachaya Ruangroj) stood up against the abuse. This initially resulted in a strained relationship between Kongpob and Arthit, however, continuous encounters between the two helps transform their relationship into something much more affectionate.

Fluke Teerapat returns in Sotus the Series; features exciting young cast – Singto Prachaya + Kristtps Kasetsart

Of course, Fluke Teerapat is the older (step) brother in the overly dramatic, overly tragic yet endearing My Bromance. If you’ve been wondering how is he doing since all we have been updated on is mostly with Fluke Pongsatorn (Red Wine in the Dark Night, Part of Love series), then Teerapat is back with a new series, but is he playing another BL character? Not really sure…

A new series that is reportedly about to follow in the success of Lovesick is underway. SOTUS is another Yaoi novel getting a live action version. With close to 500k reads/views, it already has a loyal following. Continue reading “Fluke Teerapat returns in Sotus the Series; features exciting young cast – Singto Prachaya + Kristtps Kasetsart”

Of Lovesick, the Series and “Shipping” Earn-Pete: What’s the Future for August and Ngern?

You may have already noticed it, I’m more into the Earn-Pete team than anyone else, and there are so many aspects and side stories about them that a “fanboy series” seem not enough, so I asked my friend Vera who happens to ship the team too for a more thorough, detailed discussion about why Ngern Anupart and August Vachiravit are getting so much hype (which they deserve) and that their fan service is becoming so in-your-face.

… and since she knows more than me about the fandom and where to get the latest about them too! LOL (sometimes I feel so helpless that everyone else seems to know everything except me!) Anyway, so Vera had a question ready…

How to Win at Checkers (Every Time) – พี่ชาย My Hero – 2015 [Review]

In a time when Thailand is facing a serious and deadly insurgent problem, we witness the coming of age of a Thai named Oat (Ingkarat “Ryu” Damrongsakkul อิงครัตดำรงค์ศักดิ์กุล ). The 11-year old kid has an older brother, Ek (Thira “Um” Chutikul ถิรชุติกุล), who is about to participate in a military draft. Unlike the way Koreans are drafted into their own military, the Thai way is reported to be based on “luck”, though the film shows that it depends on social standing and ability of the family to “keep” their sons out of said drafting.

Josh Kim Talks about his film “How to Win at Checkers (Every Time)”

Describing Josh Kim as a Korean-American filmmaker may suffice to some readers, but for someone who has already seen his movie – How to Win at Checkers (Every Time), I wonder how it’s possible for someone who isn’t even from Thailand make a movie that is so convincingly Thai, complete with knowing what it is to be Thai, or with a complete understanding of the Thai heart?


I guess even Thais themselves have recognized his passion and dedication as a filmmaker when they chose his movie to be the country’s official entry to the Academy Awards Best Foreign Film category.

Official Trailer How to Win at Checkers (Every Time)

Superstar Thai actor-model Toni Rakkaen headlines this striking debut feature from Korean-American writer-director Josh Kim. As the now grown Oat, he recalls his childhood experience of trying to rescue his gay older brother Ek (Thira Chutikul) from being drafted into military service. As Ek grapples with the gritty realities of life in Bangkok — working at a bar for male hustlers and sex-workers — he has also found love with his more privileged boyfriend Jai (Arthur Navarat).

When the moment of truth arrives with the draft lottery these 21-year-olds must draw either a black or a red slip to possibly be conscripted into the armed forces. Who will be sent off to the service and who will get to stay home?

The Best of Thai BL: Love Sick Series [Vol 1, Part 2]

While Love Sick [season one] can be described as “up close and personal”, the second season is chaotic and complicated, but in a good way. Suffice to say, viewers have voluntarily made “emotional” investment on the characters and the series itself. I have to argue that yes, Season 1 is simple and engrossing – but Season 2 has something that the original series don’t have – Earn and Pete. I also like to think that Jeed, being the most villainous among the girls, has the potential for dramatic acting and so is Yuri, who gets more charming after each episode.
