“Destiny Seeker” Series Review (Ep.1 to 10)

The BL series Destiny Seeker takes viewers on a journey through the lives of Songkhram and Ai, two engineering students who, by chance, end up running Dormitory 2 and Dormitory 3, respectively. The backdrop for a story with charming sequences, shocking turns, and a quest for destiny is the long-standing rivalry between these two dorms. The rivalry-turned-love romance between Songkhram, played by the charismatic Earth Chitsanupong, and Ai, portrayed by the endearing Bank Nuttawat, is the core of the series. Songkhram has always been Dormitory 2’s bulwark of strength due to his extraordinary athletic prowess. His encounter with Ai, a rival who matches him in both charm and competitiveness, however, upends his entire universe.

“A Boss and a Babe” Series Review (Ep.3 to 12)

This GMMTV office comedy started hot – a worthy piece for lead couple Force Jiratchapong and Book Kasidet, proving once and for all that the lackluster Enchanté had nothing to with the acting and everything to do with everything else. It wasn’t a bad series, it just wasn’t good either, but A Boss and a Babe was, in short, perfect – at least for what it was.

“Step by Step” First Impressions (Ep.1 to 3)

Boy meets boy, engineering faculty meets medical students, good boy meets bad boy- these are all tropes that Thai BL series have used countless times over the years. In 2023, the trend seems to be “Sexy boss meets an adorable Subordinate” as is the case in “A Boss and a Babe” and “Step by Step”. The difference between both lies in the main characters of the two shows. While “A Boss and a Babe” has Laem, a headstrong, over confident intern, “Step by Step” has Pat, a very shy and very timid subordinate. The two bosses seem different as well. While “A Boss and a Babe” has Gun, a headstrong, gay Boss, “Step by Step” has Jeng, a very domineering but headstrong manager who has to learn how to care about his employees.

“Future” Series Review (Ep.1 to 6)

Future is the new installation in the En of Love saga. We started with TOSSARRA, then Love Mechanics and finally, This is Love Story. The prequels were very well done, and I liked how all characters were intertwined in all these stories. We get to see all our favorite characters from the previous three series. My favorite couple are Gun Tossakan and Bar Sarawat. Alongside we have Mark, Vee, Pra-Ram, and Nuea.

Does true love conquer all? The ten episodic Thai drama series Chains of Heart concluded with a series finale that left social media in a state of disarray.
