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…

What strikes me about Episode 3 is the emotional roller coaster ride between the 2 major couples. And that the intense interaction between Yo and Phana, Ming and Kit continue in Episode 4 unabated.

Comparing the scenes with the previous series is unavoidable, simply because the new series is just too good! Each episode requires second or third viewing for both pleasure and critical analysis.

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.]

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 РTV series directing. With his name thrown into the spotlight, he gets to decide the next trends in Thai BL.
