It's the story of a group of university students who are quarantined in a dorm together for 14 days during the COVID-19 breakout. As they get close to each other, they get involved in the mystery of a love tragedy that took place 10 years ago. The closer they get to the root, the more their love blooms, but the danger is also lurking everywhere. (Source: Lazy Subber) Edit Translation

Decent and ordinary

First of all, the other 2 reviews in here seem to be a bit delusional giving the series a 10 and calling it the best ever... not surprising that one was posted 2 days ago before ep 14 even aired, so, quite suspicious.

In any case, this is another low-budget show with relatively inexperienced actors and a crazy storyline that could have ended around ep 8 or maybe 10 instead of 14.
The whole plot was to find Wit's killer and help both Wit and Win souls to reach the afterlife... but no, in the end, both end up staying to "see the outside world". At least, that was ok... the chemistry between Boss and Peter (Tha and Kim) was not great but at least we had some nice moments between them. The chemistry between Sun and Net (Wit and Win) was much better but with the dark theme Wit had at the beginning, it got lost. The writers did try to exploit the chemistry towards the end so at least they realized that.

However, I think the series became a bit predictable after some episodes because the writers could not find many plot twists when the small cast is locked in a quarantined building for 14 days so they had to do two fake weddings, pool parties, Tha trying to kill himself twice, etc. But the most ridiculous thing was nobody being able to avoid a speeding SUV that took an eternity to reach the characters and then Wit and Win saving Tha by making the SUV go over Aunty Anne. Now, I know she was guilty of everything, no matter how much she tried to share the blame with Kaew, but it would have been better to bring her to the police rather than dying without much punishment for her crime.

BUT, by killing her, the writers leave the door wide open for season 2 because her soul seems to take over Kaew's body. But for what? To make Tha and Kim suffer? It makes no sense. Kaew also makes no sense in the last episode because she seems to accept Wit and Win being dead and she seems to move on from the past only for her to be crying in Aunty Anne's room with a picture of both of them and suddenly realizing that nobody loves her and being possessed by Anne's soul.

The story was somewhat original having a couple from the past being rejected by Thailand's culture back then and a couple in present-day Thailand being more openly accepted. The acting was decent at parts. But the writers went a bit crazy with the story and it ended up being decent but nothing worth watching again. We'll see what happens if there is season 2.

Hidden Love is Revealed

This is my first review ever written so think of it as my baby and don't get to in your feelings, besties...????

So it's finally over and I'm big sad. I will miss this BL that gave us the epic visuals of Tha,Kim, Wit and Win, the two BL couples.

Ok, let's talk about the GOOD !!!
1st The CAST!!! Listen, this was a really good looking cast and I mean really good looking. Everyone looked good,whole snacks and desserts!!!
Hey Boss, can I call you Boss? You wanna be my Boss bcuz that man had me hooked!!! Even if this show was pure Basura, I would've suffered for 14 episodes just to see that face ??, I ❤️him, your Honor!

The acting was also on point, I mean playing a vengeful ghost with feelings like bruh, just fork me now!!! Give Wit &Win their freakin flowers bcuz they were acting like rent was due that day!!!
The side characters were hilarious and helped keep the show from getting too serious. Plus, you know that you're good at acting when the viewer hates not only your character but your name as well...Looking at you, Kaew! I wanted to smush smush her face so much?

The overall theme for the story was unique and dare I say, we have gotten a new genre within the BL world, a horror/ thriller themed BL.
Sidenote: there have been other BLs that was horror/thriller themed but they're not as well-known.
Let's hope that there are more BLs that explore the different genres that can be created and not just the standard school trope that we are all too familiar with.

Now the B-A-D....
The pacing, omg, the pacing...at times was confusing and slower than molasses like wrap that sh*t up asap!!!
Next, the story was mmm how do I say it, a bit wonky. When it was good, it was good but when it went sideways, yea, it went there. I can only assume that there were too many writers in that writing room bcuz while the overall story did eventually come together, there were missteps and confusion along the way.
The editing gave me a headache, like bruh we have seen that freakin flashback scene,y'all know which one, so many d*mn times that I can re-enact it in my sleep...

Overall, I enjoyed this BL!!! It was different and held my attention plus yes for that Sunday slot bcuz for me, it was the perfect way to end my weekend.

Hope you will give this BL a shot, watch at least 2episodes before making that decision to either watch or drop it. I give it a solid 8 Watch It Rating!!!# HappyDramaWatchingYall ???????
