On both sides of the mirror

Aksorn (Beck Pitchayutt Chatchawansombut) and Songjam (Parky Napavit Tewaphankul), in their respective first major roles in their acting credits, represent two young people who are fighting for the same cause: the pursuit of happiness and love, which is not only that of romantic love but also that of love for one's own identity.
Adapted from the web novel 'Memories in Letters' (ท ร ง จำ ใ น อั ก ษ ร), by Hungrybird, the eponymous drama of six episodes of about 35 minutes each, is one of the most beautiful, emotional series and addictive Thai of recent years, and follows the love story of two young people in two different worlds and the miracles that come with it.
Playing on the series' title, Parky plays the character "Songjam," which means "Letter," while Beck plays "Aksorn," which translates to "Memories," a rebellious soul searching for love, understanding and happiness.
The two protagonists quickly fall in love and treat each other with love and care, which makes the loneliness, the absence of the mother and suffering the intolerance of the father in one of the worlds make Aksorn's life happier. On their respective sides of the mirror, feelings will begin to grow between the two young people towards each other, while they discover their sexual orientation and identity.
With an extraordinary ability to guide the viewer's imagination, the script, written by Nirattisai Ratphithak, presents us with an adventure that mixes reality and fiction, which explores the world of parallel universes. This is a supernatural story of romance and mystery with which any teenager and young person, and older ones too, will immediately identify.
The protagonist and main narrator, Aksorn, moves into a bedroom on the top floor of an old building after being kicked out of home by his authoritarian father, who does not accept that his son is a writer. After a meteor shower, accompanied by an earthquake, Aksorn discovers that his mirror has been transformed into a portal to another universe, specifically to a bedroom inhabited by a young adventurer with a turbulent past who is not afraid to defy the laws of physics. .
As they deepen their relationship, Aksorn forges a mysterious connection with the boy who lives inside the mirror in his room. From the first exchanges, both young people feel emotionally and physically attracted to each other.
Jinthaphat Sakkaen's photography contributes to the effort to tell a story set in an extraordinary reality that defies all logic, following the romance between these two young people and the obstacles they will face to be together.
'Memories in Letters' takes place in a surprising and unique environment, divided into two different worlds located opposite each other. The distance that separates both sides barely exceeds the width of a thin crystal, but the natural and physical conditions of each of the worlds make accessibility from one place to another extremely difficult. The boys can see each other, but not touch each other.
Aksorn is a university student of Literature who has lied to his father about the course he is studying at the university and who likes to read the work of Oscar Wilde in one of the two worlds that are on both sides of the mirror. His passionate nature is responsible for fueling his dreams of being a great writer. For his part, Songjam is a happy and smiling young student who dreams of being a doctor and who likes to dance and listen to music in the world opposite to Aksorn's.
One day, an online novel about two people from two different worlds who meet through a mirror becomes the fascination of readers. However, it turns out to be based on the life of Aksorn and his lover. Who wrote this story? How did the writer learn about the personal history of the two young people? Is Songjam the author? Who is Likit, the only clue that surrounds the mystery? What will the complex network of human relationships and time travel on which the story revolves have in store for us? Is there any way the two guys can meet in person?
While the novel may be the only key that breaks the wall between Aksorn and Songjam, the mirror, the only obstacle that separates them, remains at the same time the only thing that unites them.
This romantic drama with a touch of fantasy is the first BL series from Studio Say-Yes.
As in every love triangle, in this story about coming of age, friendship, love, discovery and acceptance, a third character is missing, and this is Khiao, played by Atirut Kittipattana, the well-known actor, singer and presenter of Thai news, who plays a doctor with a secret identity that will cause an important twist in the story.
As the enigma adds new layers of suspense and intrigue to the already captivating story, the trio will travel together, on both sides of the mirror, and we will learn more about them and their past. But will it be a true and classic love triangle?
I am struck by how Beck's character offers an image of a gay teenager who, despite his youth and family trauma, has maturity when it comes to relating to others, and maintains a healthy relationship with those around him, something which is sometimes missing or failing in other series of the genre, as it is not written and represented as delicately and carefully as on this occasion.
Through a modern fairy tale, 'Memories in Letters' demonstrates the interest in making homosexuality visible during the adolescent-youth stage approached from everyday life, that is, without the characters experiencing it with drama or histrionics, as traditionally happened.
Homosexuality as a theme is inserted not only in fictions aimed at a youth target or audience, but also in audiovisual content intended for adults, offering greater understanding to those who deal with adolescents, that is, family members, friends and those people in their school environment who participate in their personal and psychological development.
The musical themes "Crossing Paths", performed by Atirut Kittipattana and Parky Napavit Tewaphankul, and "Definition of Love", by Soravit Thitipawat, reinforce the action on the screen to tell this amazing story of love that overcomes all barriers and limits of its realities going beyond science and its properties, and that, in addition, demonstrates that with a low budget you can also work on the genre when there is passion and creativity for the story you want to tell.

So confused and so many unanswered questions

Idk, episodes 1-4 I liked the series. I love the Parallel Universe troupe, also Songjam and Aksorn were really cute together, I considered it 10/10

Then episode 5 hit and It got extremely confusing to the point my head was hurting because I was trying to figure out what was going on. I enjoyed the plot twist though and finding out who Kyo was but I had a lot of unanswered questions. I then dropped my rating to 9.5/10

Now episode 6 (ending) was rushed, I feel like. We didn't get to see much of Kyo and Aksorn's relationship together, We didn't get to see Aksorn's dad talking to Kyo after finding out they were dating, and we also didn't get to see them actually writing the book, it just went straight to Aksorn passing them out and having a book signing

I'm just leaving this series so confused and with so many unanswered questions, The series had so much potential but it was rushed into episodes 5 & 6 because they tried to fit this complex storyline within 6 episodes when it needed to be at least 12 to get the full story across, I don't think people understand that Parallel Universe is so complex that stories and series can't be rushed with this topic because there's so much room for confusion if it not explain properly. Take 'Two Worlds' with Max and Nat, for example, that is a parallel universe but they explained everything thoroughly so it's not confusing and you aren't left with so many questions. I really wish they made this series a 12-episode so we can see everything. It sucks we only got to see like 20 minutes of Kyo and Aksorn's relationship.
