Today—April 23, 2021—is World Book Day, guys. A4A blog readers, what book or books are you currently reading? Share it with us in the comments section below!
As for me, I’m currently reading a Thai BL (Boys Love) novel titled 2gether, it has two volumes plus a special and you can purchase a copy on Amazon if you wish to. The author, JittiRain, has another BL book called Theory of Love which I intend to read as well.
That being said, we love 2gether because it gives us a glimpse of the “what-might-have-been” and the “what-could-have-been” had we lived in a different place and time, one that is devoid of the existence of homophobia. It shows us how a gay college love story (or stories in this case as there were multiple couples) would look like, in a world where there is no homophobia.
Moreover, it is a funny book, not to mention 2gether is such a cute story. It takes us back to the time when we first experienced love: innocent, full of passion, fervor, and then there’s the feeling of jealousy, anxiety, uncertainty, and the like. You know, that time when we were young and foolish, we loved intensely and deeply we were willing to do anything for the object of our affection.
While I’m not done reading the book yet, I have seen the TV show adaptation—it has two seasons and you can watch both on YouTube. Yes, that’s how much I loved the story and if you live in Taiwan, Philippines, and Japan, you can watch 2gether: The series on Netflix.
The series is so popular it reportedly has a cult following in other countries. Apart from Thailand, Taiwan, Philippines, and Japan, it has a lot of fans in countries such as Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, India, United States, Mexico, and Peru.
2gether: The series stars Metawin Opas-iamkajorn, who played the role of the main character Tine Teepakorn, and Bright Vachirawit Chivaaree, who played the love interest Sarawat Guntithanon. Other supporting characters included Drake Laedeke as Mil, Gun Korawit Boonsri as Green, Toptap Jirakit Kuariyakul as Type (Tine’s brother), and Mike Chinnarat Siriphongchawalit who played as Man (Sarawat’s friend) to name a few.
I loved the main actors, especially Bright who played the role of Sarawat, because he’s such a great actor. When you look into his eyes, you will see love there. You will see that Sarawat is really in love with Tine, add the many kilig moments that make the viewers’ hearts flutter and give viewers the feels, you’ll surely be glued to your seat. You will have to watch the show to know what I’m talking about. Of course it doesn’t hurt that they’re handsome, too, and that the chemistry between the two main actors is off the charts. Also, did we tell you already that the soundtrack is awesome? Yep, it is!
Anyway, I finished watching both seasons and I definitely am going to miss this loveteam. It’s a good thing they have an upcoming film called 2gether the Movie though the showing has been postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Happy reading and watching, guys! Perhaps you’ve already watched the show or read the book? Then please do tell us in the comments section below how much you love 2gether.
