Cuteness incarnate

Recently, thai bls are ferociously betting on cuteness and it pays off: just see the success of My School President! Well, Our Winter is somewhere along the same lines.
Story is very simple: two Thai boys meet in Korea in wintertime and they spend some time together and fall in love. THE END
These are 14 short vignettes giving us every step of falling in love: from meet cute by accident to happily ever after. And all along flogging drinks and brand winter clothing! Product placement and the whole shabang!
Korea is stunningly beautiful under the snow. The actors are cute and oozing chemistry. And the way their relationship deveop is cute!
So this is basically a cute 14 minutes to enjoy and that will make you smile!
What more can you ask from such a microseries?

The definition of cuteness

This won't be an ordinary review, because ”Our Winter” is no ordinary series – no need to summarize the plot, because there is none, no need to analyze character development either. I'll rather define some terms that are frequently used when it comes to BL series, and which do have some relevance here.

First of all, you may have heard about the ”second couple syndrome”, or the SCS, as experts call it, and you may even have had it. The SCS occurs when you and all the other BL series addicts like the second couple of a series more than the first couple. Some examples: ”Until we meet again” - everybody more or less liked Ohm and Fluke, but everybody loved Boun and Prem who became a BL dream couple. ”Oh! My Sunshine Night” involves Ohm and Fluke as the first couple again, and again people loved Noh and Peterpan more.

Then there is also a TCS, or ”third couple syndrome”, which is less frequent than SCS, simply because there aren't too many series with three couples. The most prominent example of TCS is the ”Cutie Pie” series – again, people liked Zee Pruk and Nunew, the first couple, and Max and Nat, the second couple, but everybody was talking about how cute the third couple were, Yim and Tutor.

I cannot count the comments any more that asked for Yim and Tutor to have their own series as lead actors, and they will actually get it. It's called ”Middleman's Love” and will air some time later this 2023. But the gods of BL were merciful enough to give us another series while we're all waiting for ”Middleman's Love” - ”Our Winter”, which brings us to the third defintion of this review – the definition of ”cuteness”.

Because that is what ”Our Winter” is – the definition of cuteness. This series, which was aired on tiktok and youtube, consists of 14 episodes of 1 minute each, and – apart from some product placement for a Korean water brand – it is just 14 minutes of Yim and Tutor being cute in the snow of the Korean winter.

What really surprised me is the fact that I was patiently waiting 5 or 2 days respectively for that single minute every Friday and Sunday at 12 o'clock noon (which was when ”Our Winter” was airing on tiktok where I live), and I wasn't disappointed even once, because, as I said, Yim and Tutor gave the BL world 14 minutes of pure cuteness. My only complaint is this: I wished the final episode had been a little longer – you'll know what I mean when you watch it.

So if you still don't know what cuteness is, I would advise you to watch ”Our Winter”. Binge-watching won't take longer than 14 minutes, and even if you miss intellectual depth or a sophisticated plot (although there are some unexpected twists that will make you smile), you'll only have wasted 14 minutes of your precious lifetime.
