it's not funny, it's offensive

Overall: this was a remake of a 2015 series (on YouTube unsubbed). It felt like it was stuck in the past (or even farther back than 2015) with its colorism, body shaming, effeminate male/trans women stereotypes and sexual assault played as comedy. 16 episodes about 35 minutes each. Aired on WeTV.

Content Warnings: colorism, trans women/effeminate men stereotypes, body shaming, bullying, cyberbullying, sexual assault played as comedy, sexual harassment, sex shaming, transphobia, held against will, non con picture/video taking and sharing

What I Liked
- Jet/New until the end of episode 6 which is what made me drop the series even though I wanted to give this a complete watch/review
- one of the teachers (the one who didn't sexually harass/assault a fellow teacher and didn't bully a student)
- it was good attempt with the message about being able to wear a uniform to match your gender identity, but then that character wore something out of a Japanese manga, would have been much more powerful if that character had worn the Thai school uniform for women
- episode 2 had good sex ed with using condoms correctly

Room For Improvement
- sexual assault played as comedy, it went on for so long and was not funny
- the two teachers who bullied a student and sexually harassed a fellow teacher
- the stereotypical male guys had love interests while the effeminate male characters were constantly fighting with each other and bullying a trans student
- way too much catfighting and bullying
- too many characters (there are 21 on the poster) and I couldn't figure out their names/who they all were
- comedy sound effects
- cliche overheard something and didn't talk

First Impression: Lady Boy Friends

**My review is only towards the first episode nothing more. My review is also based of my reasearch and following of the series from casting to first episode. *** (warning the first episode i would say it was slow for a reason and that because it mostly introduced the cast before they get into the story line so if your expecting it to go fast then you will miss inportant things that will go on later, also you got to remember not all companies have the same budget to film stuff so judging just based on the quility then you being to judgmental every series i watch with new eyes in mind. )
***Overall: I love how the series first episode is the right paced it tells you all the charectors and what group they are in school. I like to rate first episode going this is not a remake of the first series lady boyfriend from 2015. if you follow the Lady Boy Friend page on Instagram the director added new things detailing with all area issues with the LGBTQIA community and what they go through. On the Instagram page you would find and be able to watch the interviews of each actor. You would know there views on the series and who they play as well. This series have differnt types of scene that relate issues that been still going on in the community. I feel the director wanted to go back in to the 2015 area to show what issues were of that time frame which is the same issues from know a day times. Yes it talks about body shaming, racial issues. male/women and trans women stereotypes. You can watch it on WETV with vpn

Trigger Warnings: racial terms, trans women/women/male stereotypes, body shaming, bullying,

**I tell you what i like and did not like in the first episode i will update when i watch the 2nd episode
What I Liked***

- all the scenes that explain who the actors were.
- The funny sound track
- i loved the message the actor was putting out about wanting to wear what he wanted accoring to how he felt at his or her gender. ( love the outfit he wore to express his or her individually
-like how there differnt actors with differnt ways
- it has subtitles( thank you for working hard on that director) ( weather you know it or not the person that turns in the film has to give subtitles for the app to use)
-Yes there is 21 actors but there is only about 4 main actors again reasearch is key check out Lady boyfriends Instagram page
-all actors are adorable most but all are new actors that have not had any roles or just side or guest appearance some shows and or did something minor for there school.
-i love that Kadyness of all three clicks in the series the beautiful tro Yut, Pran, Nut and the olive gang Bell,May, A and the newbie two person group pat and So
-i love the fact that the director took his time in explaining who the charectors are
-i love how they show what goes on in the mind of 10 and 11 grade kids and the issues there dealing with.
***Couple things i am looking for in ep 2 and up are
More charector development between Jet and New and lots more charector development between boss and pete the one thats somewhat telling the story about his school life.
- comedy sound effects could be a bit better (the background in some parts were kind of hard to hear cause they were fighting the elements but thats what made it even more realistic of a school setting.
Again i be watching ep 2 to see more develop then i will update on ep 2

O BL que Surgiu e desapareceu sem vestígios.

Bem, eu acreditava que seria 16 episódios, conforme foi anunciado pela Pi e WeTV. Porém, recentemente o mydramalis fez uma correção de 16 para 9 episódios, o que fica uma interrogação, até por que a série não teve de fato um final. Não sei se por baixa audiência foram obrigados a finalizar, (como ocorre em novelas aqui no Brasil e outras series e BL)
Enfim, o "BL" chamado por muitos de chernobyl, parece ter surgido das entranhas e desaparecido igual fumaça...
