Ko likes to sing and quickly becomes a net idol with many fans. But he is not interested in anyone except a boy from his school, a footballer named Teng. Hoping to change Teng's feelings towards him, he goes out with his friends in search of the "Love poison" that could make Teng fall in love with him. The friendship between the two grows as Ko teaches Teng to sing, knowing that Teng only sees him as a friend. Over time, Ko begins to notice other people and starts to distance himself from Teng, who later realizes that he doesn't want to be separated from his friend. Edit Translation
Where to Watch Love Poison
Cast & Credits
The couples were all cute, and I liked the secondary character friends, especially the guys who talk in unison. They are definitely beginning actors, just a tad stiff, but far from the worst I have seen. There did seem to be some chemistry between the couples though. It was also nice to see a different part of Thailand, and something more rural.
There are parts of the story that could have been explored deeper, and some parts are rushed or glossed over a little bit. That being said, the pace of the story, and story itself was fairly good overall. And for those of us that have watched lots of Thai BL, nobody gets hit by a car, no sad breakup ending, or any of that type stuff you see in many series. A happy ending is nice sometimes.
The only reason I marked it down was the short length, and maybe a half star of mark down for the stiff or uneven acting (maybe that is the directors fault?). These couple of improvements would have made this one of the higher rated series I have seen this year so far.
I am giving this story a 6 for some originality, cause although I may have seen this storyline in the Western world, I have not watched one in Thai BL concerning with using 'Love Posion' to make one of the main characters fall for the next one. For me, some parts just wasn't brought across good and some stuff that they used for humor was not that funny for me. Also, due to the usual plots to further a storyline (having sex while drunk or someone having a girlfriend), I feel that I need to give this story that grade.
I don't really care about people's acting, once it is a good storyline. Honestly, I only gave this high amonut due to Tak and his friends. Some people may find their characters annoying. but I truly enjoyed them. Everyone else either overwhelmed or underwhelmed me.
The music was neither here nor there for me. Some I like. Some I didnt.
There is a fifty-fifty chance that I can watch this again. I won't anytime soon. But I can, like really further down.
It kept my interest till the end. And I actually wanted to know the outcome- which was a happy ending for both male couples.
