Of Boys & Men | The WhyRU the Series Experience [Opinion]

So WhyRU the Series just dropped us a monumental finale a few days ago. Until now, I am still “moving on” from those kisses that essentially redefined how I will judge BL kisses going forward. To say that it froze me while watching it is a complete understatement; to say that it unnerved me is a complete fallacy; to say that it astonished me is right on target! However, looking back at my personal journey with WhyRU the Series is currently giving me a bittersweet kick in the gut.

Why RU: The Series – เพราะรักใช่ป่าว Episode 10-13 [Review]

How to review a BL series amidst the noise? In the case of WhyRU, it’s as simple as what you see is what you get. Nowadays, with fan service being the norm – it’s a little bit harder not to join in the fun. But the critical standard remains the same, and what are those criteria?

Thai BL Series (It’s all a matter of perspective. BL Female authors vs Gay Male world view) – An Opinion

Article photo features Saint & Zee (WhyRU Series)

I have been asked this question many times and I did ask myself too quite passionately. How do you reconcile a female BL author’s perspective of male + male romance vis-à-vis your own perspective from real-life experience?

Tommy Sittichok Pueakpoolpol – สิทธิโชค เผือกพูลผล [Profiler]

There is a certain distinctive trait in Tommy’s voice that would have you assume he’s a singer. Not that his role as Zon in WhyRU series is a giveaway. Looking back, it seems my instinct is spot on.

Tommy Sittichok Pueakpoolpol was a vocalist in a band with his buddies during high school. His musical inclination has paved the way for him to pursue an acting career – a profession that is unpredictable as it is challenging.

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.

Why RU: The Series – เพราะรักใช่ป่าว Episode 6 [Review]

Let me start my review by a quote:

Lie through your teeth – Today, it means to lie through a smile – easily and unashamed. But its origins go back to the 14th century, when the phrase was to “lie in your teeth” referring both to the liar’s teeth, and the teeth of the person being lied to. The meaning was similar to today’s phrase of “lying in your face.”

In the case of WhyRU episode 6, its lying through your kiss as Zee’s Tutor kept on repeating himself that all the concern and shower of affection for Saint’s Tutor are nothing but “tease”.

Why RU: The Series – เพราะรักใช่ป่าว Episode 5 [Review]

Episode 5 of WhyRU the Series represents a subtle departure from previous episodes as far as relationship development. Both our main couples – Zon-Saifah, Tutor-Fighter seem to have reached a turning point – perhaps its best to call it a point of no return.

Why RU: The Series – เพราะรักใช่ป่าว Episode 4 [Review]

Episode 4 of WhyRU The Series represents one-third of the whole, which means we have 8 more episodes to go. Episode 1 is not to my liking, yet I immediately sense a transition and the original intent of the filmmakers to offer something unique and unpredictable yet in a way – relatable. I’m in the opinion that the remaining episodes will feature delectable, juicy, intense and revealing details that will define this BL drama.
