!!!!! Wow

Story: AMAZING. There were so many twists and turns in the storyline that just came out of nowhere (in a good way) I was constantly on my toes and never knew who was good or bad and who was in the right or wrong. Are they on the good team? Have they now switched to the bad team or were they there all along? Who knows. (Well me, because I’ve seen it ;) )
It made me feel ALL the emotions, even the ones I didn’t want to feel, I was on edge one minute, then swooning at Joon Hwi the next and then crying about something afterwards.

Acting/Cast: For me, the acting never felt stiff or forced, obviously I can’t speak for others. Everyone played their role well and I think the perfect people were cast for each role. I loved that we got backstories and plots for a lot of the characters as well, it helped immerse me in the story because I felt like I knew everyone I was seeing on screen, I could understand their actions and motives better.

Music: Gosh that one song was catchy “it’s pulling me undeeeerrrrr, it’s driving me CRAAAAZYYYY”. The music was dark and sinister when it needed to be which made me feel in danger at the right moments and help keep the pacing of the show.

I would definitely watch again, if not for Ye Seul’s storyline and Joon Hwi’s heart eyes then for the rush I felt during the high intensity scenes.

If you like investigation/law (kind of detectivy I guess) dramas, then this is a good watch for you. Enjoy!

*sigh*

In the first half you’ll wonder why there is so much FiatxType and no Tharn. Then about halfway through you’ll start to pray there was less TharnType and more literally anything else. I know it’s about Tharn and Types relationship and is literally named after them but what was the point of having those extra couples if we were hardly going to see any of them? What kind of ending was that for Champ and the doctor? (Who’s name I can’t even remember because that’s how little I saw him). Leo and Fiat were the only side couple who got a passable amount of screen time and even then it was sparse.

Also what even was the storyline? Just season 1 no trust and ‘cheating’ all over again, and then an hour of type being ordained and someone else’s wedding. I regret watching it every week and getting my hopes up that it would get better. I can only blame myself for being a ? and thinking it would improve

Wow, Just Wow

TLDR: a literal masterpiece

This series was absolutely mind blowing. I love the storyline and the characters and the cast were perfect for their roles.

Some mentionable points that really stuck with me:

1. The fact that we got backstories for most of the characters was spectacular, you felt like you got to know what the characters were fighting for and then most of the time they got unapologetically ripped away from you

2. Arisu’s emotions after the sheep and wolf game. Wow. Honestly wow, I was absolutely balling my eyes out when they stopped responding to him during the game and that was all down to the acting, the connection they made us form with the characters and the cinematography during that sequence; the ring, chota basically choking out that girl...

3. I loved that every games goal wasn’t the goal you were told it was, it made them exciting to watch and made me really uptight in a fun edge of my seat kind of way

4. Arisu managing to figure out basically every game (sometimes even by accident) amazed me, it really showed how even though he was viewed as effectively useless in the real world by his family and friends for only playing video games, his knowledge and problem solving skills saved countless lives in this alternate country (?)

5. That injured guy on the bus, who I convinced myself would die, being saved and then walking off into the horizon like ‘see you guys later’ as if he would survive on his own, iconic

6. Chishiya. That’s it. That’s the tweet. Is he good? Is he bad? Who knows but he’s serving looks like he’s on a international runway, the hair really does it for me and his characters so mysterious he just really adds to the show. The casting for chishiya was particularly spectacular

7. The Easter eggs to Alice in wonderland that I didn’t even get until after I finished watching it. Obviously I got Arisu because it kind of sounds like Alice with a push, but the rabbit one? Genius. And chishiya obviously sounds like Cheshire now that I think about it but yeah, I’m dumb. And I have no excuse for not realising the hatter, that ones just dumb on my part.

A couple more mentionable things were the visuals of the buildings and all the game arenas, wow. They were all so breathtaking in a gloomy ‘you’re gonna die here’ kinda way. And the inclusion of a transgender character without it being made obvious all the way through? *chefs kiss* also the mums acceptance, I didn’t cry, you did. Oh and the hatter and the scary guys friendship being revealed at the end!

Sorry it’s long lol, if you didn’t get the memo so far I loved it, it was a masterpiece

*unpopular opinion* meh

I was hesitant to bother writing a review as everyone else seems to think this show is the best thing ever and people in the comments are supporting bumping 10/10 reviews in order to hide the bad ones but then I decided it couldn't hurt to just write one anyway.

Don't get me wrong, the show wasn't really bad, I didn't hate it, I just don't think it's worth all this hype. I really enjoyed maybe the first 5 episodes but after that the storyline wasn't keeping me hooked anymore and the longing gazes and smiles got a bit annoying because they'd been obviously in love with each other since the first moment they laid eyes on each other and neither of them were doing anything about it. Don't even get me started on the new unnecessary drama that happened basically every episode after no.5

Someone pointed out in the comments that none of the rich characters *cough* Tian's dad, seemed to face any repercussions for their actions, and I agree that a lot of important things seemed to just get overlooked in the end in favour of rushing the couple together in the last five minutes

I appreciate the effort and creativity the production team put into the series but it's a shame the actual episodes didn't reflect it all I don't think.

The cast was good but (Sorry Earth) after a couple of episodes Phupha's sighing every 5 seconds started to grate me a little bit.

I can understand why people enjoyed it but unfortunately it wasn't my cup of tea and I just wanted to share my opinion so there's more of a mixed bag of reviews. It's ok if you didn't enjoy it as much as everyone else in the comments seems to have done :)

Good enough short film but the ending bugs me

Considering the time and money constraints it was a very well made short film but the ending almost ruins it for me? None of the music was memorable enough for me to recall it and I literally only just watched it but the story in general was good. Only the end kind of disappointed me. It doesn’t have a very high rewatch value for me because it’s so short and not enough really develops for you to need to rewatch it more than once. It’s worth a first watch though, especially as it’s so short it won’t really matter if you dislike it

I wouldn’t bother

I mean it’s up to you, as it’s short you may find it worthwhile just to give it a go but I wouldn’t recommend it. The first two episodes were lack lustre but I convinced myself it would get better. I was wrong, it only went downhill from there. I’m not really sure what the storyline was, and I don’t even know if I would classify it as having any bl in it. The ending was boring and unnecessarily problematic. Watch at your own risk of dying of boredom

The music was basically just the same song over and over and over again, you’ll hear it so many times that you’ll hear it as the bgm in your dreams and wake up in cold sweats.

If there’s one redeeming quality (which there isn’t really but I don’t want this whole review to be me being rude) it’s little angel face Bryce. Watch it for the hot boys then leave it alone

Rewatch value is 0 because I wish I hadn’t even watched it the first time, let alone having to sit through it again

Nearly won me over

I have to say, immediately after completing the series I thought it was 10 worthy but after I actually thought about what i'd just watched properly I realised it was more like an 8ish.

I enjoyed the couples:

Pete and Kao - They covered a lot of actual issues that the LGBT+ community face all over the world which made the relationship feel more realistic and made this series stand out from a lot of other Thai bl's

Sun and Mork - My faves, that cute storyline where they 'hate' each other and you're just waiting for them to realise that they actually love each other. We got some very satisfying scenes from them I thought.

Manow and Rain - Wasn't quite as invested in this couple, felt a little 'oh Mork likes Sun, hey Rain, let's date now then' :/

My only main issue was Non, wayyyyy too much of him in this series, could have done with a lot less, felt like his personality traits were being a relationship wrecker and an assaulter who accuses his victim of assault (what?)

Oh and both bl couples were fighting at the same time so it might have been nice if these could be staggered so that we still got sweet moments from one couple while the others were arguing

Worth every second

Wow! I was feeling all the emotions I was meant to be feeling at exactly the right times: I was laughing when they wanted me too and crying buckets seconds later.

Sure, I admit it, I originally only watched this for Jinyoung (and partly because the idea of psychometry sounded cool) but I'm glad I watched it for many more reasons than that now. The storyline played out beautifully, everything happened right when it should and there was never a moment where I felt bored or thought something should happen differently or not happen at all. I became really invested in the characters which is a testament to everyone's acting abilities and I thought for this reason that the casting was spot on.

Although I loved everything about it I feel like I should add that i'm glad I originally wanted to watch it for Jinyoung because his acting was amazing and he really added to the overall perfection of the show

Inconsistent quality

I found this film okay but I started to lose focus around the halfway point as it wasn’t doing much to keep me gripped. HOWEVER, watching the ending made me wish I’d paid more attention to the rest of the film.

The ending was unexpected (for me at least) but I personally thought it was a good way to end the film. I just wish it had been that good the whole way through!

The acting was quite good, especially at the end, but I can’t particularly remember any of the music - I can’t say it really added anything to the film.

I wouldn’t watch it again unless it was a ghosts last wish, but it was fine for one watch.

Give me my 30 mins back

I get that it was a low budget production and that the production company was probably quite small but even so there were quite a few annoyances for me.

Mainly, if you are going to call your show 'My Keychain', the part of the story revolving around said keychains should probably be clear and easy to follow. When Tin took both bags home and untangled the keychains the dog one was furthest from the camera. Then when he opened the bags he opened the one furthest from the camera and was nosily looking through the other guys stuff, and the next scene the other guy is saying the dog keychain bag isn't his. If you're going to swap the bags positions in between the shots please at least have the keychains in focus. I went back to double check and they're so blurry I can hardly tell which bag hes going through. Because it was unclear I spent the next episode confused as to why the other guy was saying the dog keychain bag wasn't his.

Story - ???

Acting - The way the other guy looked at Tin when they'd literally only just met was weird. It made me squirm in discomfort + I listened to more awkward pauses in between words than I did actual words

Music - There were sooo many unnecessary sound effects. If there had been 2/3 less I might have found them funny
