Sometimes it takes getting lost in order to be found.
Many varied opinions and definitions come to mind when people see this word. Professionally, to act is to pretend, to successfully convince other people that you are someone else.
Those two words alone create a plethora of sensational storytelling.
The Thai BL Not Me doesn’t know how to do anything halfway, and we’re all benefiting from their need to relay a well-rounded, genuinely emotional story.
I’m holding tight to my DanYok agenda.
I’ve written about the Thai BL Not Me in the past, touching on the issues the drama raises and how valid and relatable it is to viewers.
There is power, and then there is power. Not Me, the Thai BL series starring Gun Atthaphan and Off Jumpol, certainly knows how to leave an impression, the kind of deeply felt moments meant to change hearts and minds.
Approximately 5 minutes after I finished watching the finale of Bad Buddy (my sister and I had an unspoken rule to only watch it late at night after the rest of our family had fallen asleep so as to not let anyone and anything disturb the bliss of watching each episode), I tweeted this- “Please excuse me while I cry about #BadBuddySeriesตอนจบ the whole night and figure out how high it’s come on my favourite BL’s list”.

Pat: Would you like me?
Me: it’s finally happening, everybody stay calm. EVERYBODY STAY CALM.

Me: starts crying
“It was really hot. Much hotter than I’d imagined. The lights on the stage were so hot. I don’t really remember anything else. I was just thinking about how I was actually allowed to say that much. I can’t describe that feeling very well. I want to do another show. I want to experience that feeling again. Also, I want to write another song.” – Mafuyu Sato
Can’t say goodbye I’m still drifting with your echoes
