Domundi TV’s “𝐃𝐌𝐃 𝐋𝐈𝐍𝐄 𝐔𝐏 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟑 𝐈𝐍𝐓𝐎 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐍𝐄𝐖 𝐔𝐍𝐈𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐒𝐄” was a rather glitzy, glamorous affair. The live event commemorated their promise to introduce new talents while announcing their new projects for 2023. Some of their past ventures have been completely revamped while new introductions are eliciting excitement and anticipation. In today’s feature, we will be categorizing their announcements as per Domundi TV’s popular BL couples. Put on your seatbelts and join us on this wild ride!
☆ Zee Pruk & NuNew Chawarin
Undoubtedly one of the most popular BL couples (because of the endless speculation surrounding their relationship status), Zee-NuNew will starring in a major upcoming production; alongside the Cutie Pie’s Special Episode titled “Cutie Pie 2 You”. Zee & NuNew rose to fame with their romcom “Cutie Pie Series”, which was well received by the audiences. Their sexy chemistry was much appreciated, and they quickly became fan favorites. The lead couple will be yet again reprising their character roles, Lian & Kuea in Cutie Pie 2 You, which is set to premiere on 6th January, 2023. Alongside they will also be starring in the regal romance “The Next Prince”. Frankly, this show’s teaser has the same vibes as the recently concluded Pinoy BL “The Rainbow Prince”. Obviously, The Next Prince will be a more much raunchy affair (we expect nothing else from this gutsy couple). NuNew will be stepping into the role of Prince Kanin while Zee will be acting as his bodyguard. These two always pick up subjects that are unique and rustic. ZeeNunew will also be starring in a Major Group’s Special Movie, but the details are still under wrap.
☆ Max Kornthas & Nat Natasitt
Another popular couple in the Domunti camp, MaxNat have made a name for themselves by starring in several BL projects (Why R U?, Y-Destiny, Close Friend, Cutie Pie). Last seen in the mega ensemble “War of Y”, Max & Nat will be starring in two upcoming adaptations- Naughty Babe & 2 Worlds.
Adapted from the novel “Naughty Babe” (Naughty Babe ดื้อเฮียก็หาว่าซน) by BamBam (ผู้เขียน), this show is a spinoff sequel to Cutie Pie Series and will be focusing on the secondary couple, Phayak Chatdecha Chen a.k.a Hie Yi (Max) and Tacha Wongteerawit a.k.a Kon Deaw (Nat). Max and Nat will be reprising their roles from the prequel, and this show will solely focus on Yi-Daew’s impossible romance.
Tacha Wongteerawit is engaged to Phayak Chatdecha Chen because of a mutually beneficial business agreement. The sweet love of Hia-Yi and Khon-Diaw is like the ending of a romance novel. As if, Tacha was left alone on the engagement day. He was left alone when he moved in to Hia-Yi’s place. As the wedding ceremony was around the corner, he had to deal with everything alone… His name is Khon Diaw, but it doesn’t mean he wants to be alone! As the distress is no longer bearable, Tacha decides to flee from the future wedding to Switzerland, not thinking Hia-Yi will try to catch up with him and get into a car accident. Besides, Hia-Yi loses his memory when he wakes up and accuses Tacha of being the one despising the idea of getting married! What’s with him, huh?!
Adapted from the web novel “2 Worlds” (2 Worlds: โลกสองใบ ใจดวงเดียว) by Prang (พราง), this show is a suspenseful fantasy drama set in a parallel universe. Although details pertaining to the rest of the cast are still undisclosed, Max and Nat will be playing the main lead couple.
PuPa and Kram love each other but later PuPa is murdered. However, something happens and Kram is pulled to a parallel world where, 12 years ago, Kram and Tai were in love. However, Kram was killed by Tai’s dad. One day, Tai drives by a road and finds someone in the middle of the road. The face of that person stuns Tai because he looks exactly the same as his lover from 12 years so. What will happen next?

☆ Tutor Koraphat & Yim Pharinyakorn
Tutor & Yim gained popularity after starring as the secondary couple, Nuer & Syn in “Cutie Pie The Series”. Tutor & Yim will be starring in two major projects next year-
Middleman’s Love has been in the pipeline for almost a year. Popular BL couple, Jimmy Karn & Tommy Sittichok were supposed to star in the titular roles, but they resigned and now Tutor-Yim will be stepping into their roles. Adapted from a novel by littlebbear96, this show is an age-gap romance in an office setting.
Jade works as a graphic designer. He is always the one in the middle. Middle child. He has got an average grade in school. People around him either his siblings or his friends are so good-looking that he has always been overlooked or becomes just a middleman for those who want to know his siblings and friends personally. Jade has been in this situation for years and has to accept it unwillingly. He has built a high wall in his heart. He does not expect a romantic relationship since he has learned that whoever comes to him just wants to get close to the people around him. One day, his office welcomes an intern called Mai. Mai is an attractive student who is popular among the girls in the office. Jade notices that Mai often stares at him and his friend, Uea. He thinks Mai is interested in Uea, and yes- he will become a middleman for this again. But, he does not know that the one Who actually catches Mai’s eye is him. Let’s see what will happen when the middleman will not be overlooked as before!

☆ Net Siraphop & James Supamongkon
Net & James were recently seen in the Thai dramas “Catch Me Baby” & “War of Y” in support roles. Despite having no major release yet, Net & James are already quite famous and have their own dedicated fanbase. They both will be starring in two different projects next year-Bed Friend & Love Upon a Time.
Another anticipated show that has been in the pipeline for more than a year, Bed Friend stars Net & James in the lead roles of King & Uea. This show will be a spinoff to Tutor & Yim’s Middleman’s Love and is a workplace romance with the added adage of the “Enemies to Lover’s” trope. Adapted from a novel by littlebbear96, both storylines are amalgamated in the same universe.
Uea is a very private person who has a strong dislike of casanovas, while King is one. King and Uea work in the same office and are both best friends with Jade. They don’t like each other but then—for some reason—begin to have a particular “relation”.
Love Upon a Time
With the recent success of Thai Lakorn “To Sir With Love”, historical BLs seem to be in demand. Net & James’ second upcoming project “Love Upon a Time” promises a unique historical setting with a time travel twist. The teaser looks incredible and I’m totally looking forward to its premiere next year.
Starring an ensemble cast of Zee Pruk, NuNew Chawarin, Max Kornthas, Jimmy Karn, Tutor Koraphat, Yim Pharinyakorn, Tommy Sittichok, Poppy Ratchapong, Mark Sorntast, Net Siraphop, James Supamongkon, Boun Noppanut and Boss Chaikamon; Zomvivor is a high school drama based on the concept of “Zombie Apocalypse”. We still don’t have details about the storyline except for the tactile teaser, which spells suspense and horror.
Another long awaited drama, Punk Spy was supposed to star Tommy Sittichok & Jimmy Karn in the lead roles, but Jimmy has been replaced with rookie actor Thomas Teetut. Poppy Ratchapong Anomakiti, Tai Thanaphat and Leo Peerapun will be joining the cast, as per the original schedule.
It’s a romantic comedy story with a comfortable atmosphere of a small tourist town as a backdrop. And this series just fooled you from the first sentence. This is a story of two people who keep secrets. And they are searching for the truth. Something will happen. What will the story be? You’ll have to wait.
Your Sky & Fan Boy
Domundi TV also introduced their new 7 members: Thomas, Jems, Namping, Latte, Keng, Kong, and Firstone who will be part of “Your Sky”, a series adapted from 25.15.66’s novel and “Fan Boy”, an original screenplay scripted by the DMD Team.
