I absolutely love this drama. There are one or two plot points that I didn’t really like and I think the main challenge in Kao and Pete’s relationship could have been easily avoided, but overall the plot is really good. I like that there aren’t so many character that I can’t tell who is who. I also like that you can watch this with having to watch the parent series, though it does help, as the parent series is filled with two many couples that I don’t care about.

Kao and Pete’s plot is a little dumb, not gonna lie. The fact that Pete is threaded by a 12 grade boy goes against his character, in my opinion, and his lack of trust in Kao’s feelings for him is a little out of left field.
I lived for Monk and Sun’s story. It didn’t take the direction I expected and there was one aspect of Sun’s character that I didn’t really enjoy but I often found myself annoyed when Pete and Kao took up to much screen time.
Rain and Manow’s story is not really a big part of the show and I was kinda uncomfortable with her being a high school student as I felt they only did that to make it seem like Non and Kao could be a thing.

I love all of the characters in this show. I have complaints about all of them, but those complaints are the things that, while frustrating, make the characters relatable and human. The relationships between all the characters is spectacular and I really enjoy that they are entertained by not reliant.
I also think this show does a good job with the side characters. They all have a purpose in the story and, while June is annoying, I never got tired of the Camaraderie and comedic relief that brought to the table.

Most important:
To me, the most important thing about this series is the awareness that it bring to the topics discussed in the show. It deals with some hard topics but it doesn’t shy away from them or turn them into jokes like a lot of other shows. Kao goes through a lot in this series, but he and Pete talk about most of the problems and show a pretty healthy relationship. As a queer person, the time that this show takes to show supportive parents and talk about the difficulties of coming out and other aspects of queer life is really important to me. I shed tears during several of the talk Kao and Pete had about sexuality and felt deeply for the strong relationship they both had with their parents.

Overall, I think this is an amazing show. It is not perfect, no show is, but it’s message and story make up for all the imperfections. Also the acting is really good. New and Tay (Kao and Pete’s actors) are best friends in real life and their chemistry shows. By that I mean they act amazingly together though their kiss Scenes are kinda awkward.
