This is awful in a boring and homophobic way.

All the humor in this is dependent on homophobia. Once again, all the characters "straight" except for one openly gay person who has a woman's voice and touches the main character inappropriately whenever he's within range.

I don't understand how it's possible that a genre that is about male-male love can be so thoroughly and institutionally homophobic. I'm really at the point where I'm giving up on BL. I hoped it could improve things for gay kids in intolerant cultures, but I think this is making it worse, by suggesting that gay=predatory woman in a man's body and that homosexuality is a choice.

The producers apparently think their audience is mentally challenged as they have scenes that flashback to the previous scene, as if we can't retain info from 30 seconds ago. This happens constantly - by the end of the second episoode it already felt like I'd rewatched this three times.

This series is really disappointing - I want to support Isan BL, but this is a regressive checklist of tropes with no originality or anything of interest except for how the two mains look shirtless, which is admittedly impressive. I slogged through 2 episodes but I can't make myself watch another.
