One of the good BL series that finished it’s 12 episode run in Thailand. This series has a huge international fan base and fans all badly needed a season 2. I particularly liked the series where it focused only on the lead couple love story and the setting is mainly in the college campus.
There is no family objection and we should assume that both families are understanding in accepting their kids are gay. There are less number of misunderstandings between lead couple but it lacked a character development for Pi. He is shown not to be a confident guy with braces and specs and finally bam in the end of the episode he finds courage to stay with his true love.
Mork likes Pi and how he stays patiently waiting for Pi to make in falll in love with him shows his dedication and responsibility for his only crush. He had good acting skills and he made this series a lovable one.
Duean and Meen couple series is like a short story within the series where a guy with no understanding of love falls in love with a guy with too much of commitments.
