Cast & Credits
Hilarious and comedic, but well written and chaotic.Story: When I first started this my plan was, because it was a sitcom, I wasn’t going to take it seriously, it was just for a laugh. However they created such an amazing plot with a couple that had great communication and were so sweet. If I had to describe this show in 2 words it would be “chaotic” yet “meaningful”. Every character brought something new and funny to the series, and I fell in love with each one, especially Om. The final episode was a good closure too in preparation for a season 2. I’m sad that there is only 6 episodes but I’m so happy with what we got, and wouldn’t change a thing about this series other than the flashing lights at the beginning because I felt like I was gonna have a seizure. Other than that it was the perfect balance between funny and serious.
Cast: Yoon (Nott)- He’s so handsome and, for a rookie actor, did such a good job as the role of Nott. He was funny but portrayed emotions well, and I really enjoyed every scene he was in and his great advice at the end of each episode.
—Talay (Pun)- I fell in love with Talay from My Engineer, and fell even more in this series. He’s also incredibly handsome, and is a natural when it comes to acting. He was by far the best character in the series and I really hope to see him in even more dramas.
—Poppy (Porpla)- I loved his character in WhyRU and I now have so much respect for him as he played the feminine Porpla, dressing in drag and being incredibly flamboyant. He was the funniest character and definitely brought the main humour to the show. I can’t think of anyone who could have done as well as he did.
—Peerawich and Scott (Om and Arm)- Om was seriously the best friend you wish you could have, even when you thought he was just silly and messing around, he was smart and intuitive while being hilarious and amazing. He was my favourite character and the supportive friend we all need! Arm I had mixed feelings over his character because while he did help the couple progress and knew when to back off, he seemed incredibly desperate due to his attraction to Nott. However they were both awesome and I liked them a lot in the end.
Music: The music was great, I really enjoyed the opening and OST, and the constant sound effects really helped the setting. I also loved the constant references through the music such as the WhyRU music which made it even better.
Rewatch value: That’s definitely a 10, I will be rewatching this very soon and probably a few times so I can have another laugh.
Overall: If you like more serious dramas I would probably avoid this, but if you like sitcoms and cheesy slapstick comedy with a healthy relationship then definitely check this out, you won’t regret it! I’ll also say if you liked the drama Diary of Tootsies then you will love this!
The series follows the story of an apartment complex where only men are allowed to be tenants. The story also has several callbacks to Why R U the series and you will see why soon. From here on out, the story follows several couples, the most prominent being Nott and Pun, and their journey towards love.
The acting is seriously impressive! All the characters seem to be crazy and the actors channel the essence of their characters very well. A special shoutout has to be given to Poppy as Porpla, whom I just found out played Junior in Why R U the series! For actors who seem to be doing their first or second roles, they were amazing. I have to say that it’s been amazingly cast.
This is the first time I’ve seen a sitcom format for a BL and I have to say I’m sold on this idea. The production team has done an excellent job with this series and I believe it’s going to get even better as it goes on. The series also breaks the fourth wall often to either give advice on love, or sometimes it’s just cause!
What a fun OST! The OST of this series is the same as Why R U’s OST and I love it. Most of the tracks of Why R U’s OST are reused for this series and I couldn’t love it more!
Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I cannot think of one negative thing about this series.
WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT ENDING! Seriously what was that ending? They rode off on a Spaceship and THE END!! Then that one year time jump? I really hope that was a season 2 announcement.
All kidding aside though,
What I thought was a series that depended solely on it’s hilarity, delivered a surprisingly poignant and heart touching finale. That conversation between Porpla and Pun about unfulfilled first love was something else. Poppy was just ‘Chef’s Kiss’. I never would have thought that my favourite character at the end would be Porpla and the relationship I would be most invested in would be that of Pun and Porpla. That Spaceship though! I guess they got together, but that ending has got to be an announcement for season 2!
This series does not have as high as a rating as other series’ do, but trust me, it’s worth your time. If you’re having a bad day and just want to laugh , this series is perfect for you. Its a surprisingly insightful series about life, if you just look past those quirks. I hope this review helped you with your decision to watch this series. Thank You!
