The 5 of February was a busy night in Hollywood. While most of the city is buzzing with the glitz and glamor of the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, I’m sitting down to talk to a man who’s half a world away. Born and raised in the United States, Luke Ishikawa Plowden is currently in Bangkok, Thailand, building an impressive acting resume and (fittingly enough) is at the very start of his music career. Sitting down in the offices of GMMTV, the Thai entertainment conglomerate Plowden is signed to, he’s an energetic and effervescent young man with bright eyes and an infectious smile.

“My School President” Series Review (Ep.3 to 12)
On 24 February, fans of the hit GMMTV series My School President said goodbye to TinnGun, ThiewProm, SoundWin, and a plethora of incredibly memorable characters who, over the last twelve weeks, have made us laugh, cry, and even shout out at our television screens. In my humble opinion, this series was the best of everything GMMTV has ever produced. From the chemistry of the leads to the catchiness of the series soundtrack, it’s easy to see how My School President became the talk of the industry, setting up Gemini and Fourth to take the crown as the heirs to the throne of the BL industry.

“Never Let Me Go” Series Review (Ep.3 to 12)
Pond Naravit and Phuwin Tangsakyue are the GMMTV power ship that took the world by storm in the 2021 meta-dramedy Fish Upon The Sky. Pond is stoic and statuesque, while Phuwin is innocently beautiful. So, naturally, when their follow-up series was announced, everyone was excited.

Mek vs. The World
The first thing you notice about Jirakit Thawornwong is his eyes. Bright and beguiling, there’s a magnetism to them. Drawing you in, they hold in their depths – but just when you’re about to drown, you’re pulled back by his smile. Welcoming and warm, there’s a hint of mischief hiding in the left-hand corner.
“609 Bedtime Story” Series Review (Ep.3 to 11)
After eleven weeks, 609 Bedtime Story has come to an end. Billed as the first Choose-your-ending BL, this supernatural romance directed by Tanwarin Sukkhapisit stars BL Royalty Ohm Thitiwat and Fluke Natouch as Dew and Mum, who cross parallel worlds to be with one another. Sukkhapisit is no stranger to supernatural dramas, and as a master storyteller, I went into this series with extremely high expectations and wasn’t disappointed.

“SUMMERDAZE Christmas Together” Movie Review
I had absolutely zero expectations of what to expect with this short film. But it was so adorable! The chemistry between the leads Alfred Sun and David Eung is undeniable and the entire thing is just pure Christmas fun!

GeminiFourth: The Crown Princes of BL
If you’re a fan of the Boys Love industry, then you know who GMMTV is. After their 2016 enemies-to-love story SOTUS, nearly every subsequent series the company has produced since has become a worldwide sensation, creating instant international superstars of their series leads. Drama after drama, the company has continued to catch lightning in the bottle, and their latest series, My School President, is proving to be the most electrifying of all.
My School President: Midway Thoughts
With Episode 6 of GMMTV’s High School Music series My School President (แฟนผมเป็นประธานนักเรียน) we’ve reached the halfway point. While from episode-to-episode reviews, you can probably already tell my feelings on this series, but I’m going to reiterate them here anyway – because, well, I love writing about this series.
“Never Let Me Go” First Impressions (Ep. 1 to 3)
This GMMTV answer to KinnPorsche hasn’t gripped me in the way that I thought it would. It’s alright; I don’t dislike it. It just hasn’t given me that “wow” feeling like I have with other GMMTV series like My School President and The Warp Effect, but again, I don’t dislike it.

“The Warp Effect” First Impressions (Ep.1 to 3)
The Warp Effect is a GMMTV sex comedy that is pushing boundaries in directions the company (at least from what I’ve seen) hasn’t been to before. Fluid sexualities, kinks, and a blatant and unapologetic approach to responsible sex. Honestly, I’m here for it. New Thitipoom (Dark Blue Kiss, SOTUS) stars as Alex, a seventeen-year-old high school student who made a promise to his mother (before she passed away) that he would wait until he was 18 (and had found the right girl) to have sex. But he broke that promise (and lost the ring that came with it) while he was drunk out of his mind at a party hosted by his friend Jedi (Mark Pakin, My School President).
