Great new ship

Make it happen.

These boys great and 2nd boys also.

I love them.

Parents aweful.

The boys can have great stories in new or followup stories.

They have great chemistry and made me cry.

They can be faith in slow motion.

Parents can be more supportive in next season. Plus obvious boyfriend drama. Maybe girls and boys mix it up.

Underwhelming

If I had to describe this show in one word it would be 'underwhelming'.

Thats the general feeling I had watching most of it.

I wanted more from the characters & the story. I wanted to love this series & enjoy it like many others but all I feel is underwhelmed.

From ep1 until like ep7, the 3 main characters had this all encompassing aura of sadness around them. Even when the smiled, laughed or genuinely enjoyed themselves it all still felt so sad.
In that sense alone, I found it so overwhelming/stifling.

Xu Qizhang's bandmates and mom were honestly a breathe of fresh air & most of my favourite scenes from this series involves them.
My favourite character is definitely Xu Qizhang's mom. I actually grew to kinda care about her more than any other character in the show.

Character descriptions:

Qizhang - word vomit.
I've never seen anyone who offers up so much information that wasn't asked for. You could ask him a yes or no question and he'll tell you his whole life's story😭

Guang - shallow.
I don't know much about him other than he has strict parents, is best friends with Ray & likes Qizhang. I don't know what he likes, dislikes or even who he is. I sympathise with him because of his situation but I couldn't connect with him as a character.

Ray - frivolous

He is the most interesting & unique character in the show... on paper. The two best friends suffer from the same character flaw. We didn't actually get to learn much about them. Why was he dressed like woman for his ex? Does he like dressing prettily? Who is he?

Jian - love interest.

That's kind of it. He is Ray's love interest and is in a band. How old is he? What are his interests? Why's he in a band? Why does he like Ray? None of these are answered.

Also Ray & Jian's first kiss was laughably awkward & Idk that was the intention.

Basically I can relate to what they're going through and I can even relate to what they're feeling but I just struggle to relate to these characters. Their lack of depth leaves me with nothing other than sympathy for them.

It was promising but ultimately underwhelming.

This review may contain spoilers

wholesome and fluffy, but not stupid...

Don't know why some are disapointed by this show.

It was nicely done, had a very nice catchy song and they acted all cute and very well.
Of course is hasn't that much drama, but the writing is not cringy like most thai shows. All is well balanced with lot's of fluffy scenes and some character progression.
The only slightly negative part are stereotypical "bad" parents, but in an asian culture that is more common compared to the "west" and understandalbe.

All in all, if you want to have a show which has a more light story with fluffy scenes, tastefully done, I can recommand this show.

I liked this movie, even though I didn't understand what was going on most of the time.

I was able to find it online and watch it after looking up the name in Chinese.

Do take note that I watched this a while ago and my description might not be 100% accurate.

From what I remember, there are two main couples, one being Dino Lee and some other girl (His ex maybe? Don't remember) , and Bii and some girl.

But, after many interactions, the quiet, shy FL wins Dino Lee's heart.

I do not remember what happens in the end, but I did enjoy the movie. Watch it if you'd like.
