In Part One, it’s all about the cast and actors’ performance. In this post, we talk about the technical aspects of the drama and of course, dir. Aam Anusorn.

What makes this series special? Let me count the ways…

The first 4 episodes of 2 Moons 2: The series has already exceeded my expectations. Someone said I was desperate to promote the new drama when there is not enough ‘clout’ to influence the fans yet.

I disagree with the apparently biased opinion by saying this: The drama by acclaimed filmmaker Anusorn – even without the new materials – is already far superior to the previous season. 

Experience taught us that when we see something special, we know it immediately. That’s my initial reaction to Episode 1 of 2 Moons 2 during its first 15 minutes (excluding the cast intro).

I have seen and heard them previously – the initial conflict between Phana and Wayo, the show of ‘reverence’ towards Wayo who is – after all – a very rich kid, the selection of the Moons, how the student body reacts when Phana appears. While there are 3 BL couples, Episode 1 concentrates on Wayo and Phana. [with Ming, played by Joong Archen as scene-stealer.]

One of the most fascinating Thai BL drama, is without a doubt, 2 Moons: The Series. While many prefer the first couple Phana-Wayo, I’m quite interested in the story and character development of Ming and Kit.

Season One and its ‘original’ cast may have been relegated into the background with the introduction of a new cast, but both actors who play Ming and Kit are much appreciated!

The film Present Perfect by Anusorn Soisa-ngim feels both Thai and ‘not Thai’ for me. Having been so used to Japanese movies where silence and slow pacing are the norms, I thought I was seeing an indie Japanese film!

About a week ago, it was announced that Soisa-ngim will take charge of the 2 Moons 2 The Series. Apart from the international success of his films, it is now obvious that the Thai filmmaker has entered a new field – TV series directing. With his name thrown into the spotlight, he gets to decide the next trends in Thai BL.
