Lazy Unnie’s Couch: 2gether

Tine is a very handsome student and cheerleader in college, while Sarawat is one of the campus’ most popular guys and is also in the soccer and music club. When Tine is chased by Green, who he does not reciprocate feelings for — he ends up begging Sarawat to fake date with him in order to chase Green away. Somehow, just like the tale as old as time goes — pretend somehow starts to turn into reality. However, before a “happily ever after” there is the process of falling in love, and the slow realization that somehow they aren’t pretending anymore. Somehow, they do not want to.

Finally I have crossed over into the dark side. By that I mean Thai BL dramas. Yes, it has been a long time coming and I knew I would get here eventually but alas, I’m here. The synopsis is spot on with what this show is about in the beginning. Tine is a charismatic person who catches the eye from more than just the female population at their university. I thought the scenes where Green was basically chasing Tine down were over the top and hilarious. The dynamic was fun. And from that is when we finally get introduced to Sarawat… insert the tsundere swoon. As a character, I usually don’t fall for the tsundere type but Bright’s portrayal of Sarawat was spot on.

What I liked the most was the chase aspect. Tine basically doing everything he can do to try and get Sarawat to be his fake boyfriend to get Green off his back, was great. The plan was flawed from the beginning but that different matter because the chemistry between these two were really something I started to look forward to. Throw the addition of the supporting characters of the lead’s friend groups and you have a great romantic comedy.

However, those are the best things I can say because by the time I got to the last third of the show, things seemed to drag out in a way that felt disconnected from the beginning of the show. Once the chase was over and Tine and Bright had decided that neither could hold back their feelings and became a couple, things kind of went down hill. It was like they were only a couple in name only. Yes, they expressed their feelings through verbalization and the occasional possessive actions but that was it. The whole first half there was this build up of chemistry that I thought when they actually came together it was going to be this explosion of passion. Nah, they were roommates. All they needed to do was maybe focus on the fact that Tine basically went from always being with women to now adjusting to being with Sarawat. Or maybe instead of throwing in a random chick from Sarawat’s past to stir up some trouble. All it did was give us a scene where Tine had to awkwardly cry in a stairwell.

To wrap that all up, I liked it. I liked what it showed me in the beginning, I liked the supporting characters and their little love stories and I even liked the mains. They all just seemed to be victim to some had writing and direction. Maybe in the sequel I will get what I feel like I was promised.

  1. Bright is one of the prettiest people I’ve ever seen. For a BL, this was remarkably not-steamy. Cute, though.

  2. You can go down the Bright/Win rabbit hole. I don’t know how actors handle the real-life shipping obsession. I’m watching Lovely Writer right now. It’s about a BL author involved in the film adaptation of one of his books. It’s cute so far.

  3. I might add that to my list! I really don’t understand the whole real-life shipping. Especially when people are already in relationships or were, in Bright’s case. I just can’t wait to see Bright and Win in the new Boys Over Flowers.
