Where to Watch Brothers
Cast & Credits
Some scenes were tedious, I admit. But it was still cute and enjoyableI stumbled on this series and saw the synopsis of it. At first, I was wondering if to even watch it as it seems to be focusing on some storylines that I do not like in BL's that are used consistently. However, it was a cute and enjoyable series for me, personally.
I will say that they are some parts of this series that was a bit tedious. But, they were some parts that I did enjoy in this series. I was glad that they resolved the storyline of the teacher/ student with Maping stating that he did not have feelings for the teacher that way. I was also glad with Q and his budding relationship with the senior who delivers food. I wish that this series had explored them more.
I maybe in the minority here, when I say that I actually did not care for the relationship of Choi's tutor and the baker. They actually did not add anything for me, which is weird. I actually like Prab and Choi together, although they are step-brothers. And this is due to the fact that that I think Prab liked Choi from before thier parents got married. So, it actually wasn't super weird for me. Prab and Choi's parents know about them and I was actually shock that they accepted them, eventhough in the beginning Choi's dad was angry and gave the boys ultimatums until in the end he agreed to the boys dating. Also, who the frick on the frack is the Frog Prince?! Cause I thought it was Tri. But now, it's lookong like it wasn't him or that there is a new Frog Prince, which apparently we will find out who it is in Season 2 (hopefully).
The acting wasn't that good. But I don't think it was that bad as well. Some scenes stood out to me for some of the actors and that's why I give it a 7.
Hear what? Not going to lie but the music actually slapped in this series. I liked all of the songs that I heard.
I actually do see myself watching this series again. It may not be anytime soon, but in the future- sure, why not! It was an enjoyable series that I spent my Fridays with and I am grateful that I gave it a chance.
Overall, I enjoyed this cute series. I will agree with the majority that the shirtless sequence wasn't needed for this series, especially when some of these actors look so young and it can be very off putting for new viewers if they see that.
Unrealistic, but adorableBrothers was a pleasant surprise for me! Here are my pros and cons:
DRAMA. There were some dramatic moments here (the parents' divorce issue, Chon's dad's health, etc.), but they never evolved into the melodrama that BL is often guilty of, problems were talked out and solved.
ACTORS. While there were no Oscar winning performances here, the boys were all adorable.
WHOLESOMENESS. Despite some "unusual" plotlines here and there (read below), this was wholesomeness, the likes of which I've never seen in a Thai BL. Borders on Cherry Magic wholesomeness.
OST. I loved the soundtrack, especially the theme song.
THE "NUDE" INTERMISSION PHOTOS. Just tacky and bordering on creepy. They could have been clothed. What was the director thinking?
TEACHER/STUDENT. I don't know why they had to go there. So Maping (the student) didn't have the hots for the teacher, but the teacher DID have the hots for the student. That was the real issue. Not really sure what purpose this served.
TWINCEST. Okay, I'll admit it. As a gay guy, when I was in high school, the idea of having a threesome with cute identical twin brothers would have been my dream come true, lol! But in reality, the thought of blood brothers (twins or otherwise) engaging in a threesome together is pretty cringeworthy.
PACING. Most of it was fine, but there were dull moments that just lasted too long (i.e., "Byenior" party; some of the Khun scenes).
But I digress. The cons were not dealbreakers at all. I really liked this one.
