Based on the successful movie, Golf's and Bank's homophobic father/step father, sends Golf to the USA to study, while a devastated Bank stays in Bangkok, Thailand, after knowing their relationship. However 8 years later, Bank and Golf returns home from their respective trips (Bank was in Los Angeles working on a project as a researcher), and (Golf returns from a working trip in Pulau Weh, Indonesia as an experienced diver). Unbeknownst to Golf, is that Bank is attached to his overseas boyfriend (Jackson) of 2 years. Who will Bank choose, Golf, a lover/brother for more than 8 years or his soon to be husband (Jackson) of 2 years.
Cast & Credits
There's simply no comparison. The movie is just a better overall production, even counting the fact that movies tend to have a higher budget. It's best to think of them as being in two different universes-having similar characters, a similar setup, but completely different characterizations, different plot, different tone, different extrapolation. I suspect that a lot of people rate the series higher because it ends happily, where the movie is tragic. As a gay man, I totally understand the bias against LGBT movies with tragic endings; there's simply too many of them. But still, the movie's better.
But I'm not dismissing this series. The series comes into it's own about halfway when it spends time with new characters and explores themes of it's own.
Overall, you won't regret watching it. I wish I had time for a rewatch as my own comparisons to the movie spoiled the beginning for me. Looking forward to Season 2 instead!
I find that with the new storyline, it's good to see a change, and not Golf dies. However the script were written off course, which were given a 7.0
A new actor Golf (Patpasit) and an experienced actor Bank (Chaiya from LS and PT), a new chemistry is brewing for the 2, but there are too many actors in this season, too many females in particular, and from the movie, it was a Thailand traditional dance, and it ended up with a Korean song (Gee from Girls Generation), a little disappointing with 6.5
Music wise is fantastic, they used new music and mixed with the original soundtrack to give it a brand new look, score will be 9.5
Overall i give the series 7.5, but my own personal score for this will be 8.5 (due to the creativity)
