[Thailand Drama 2013~2015] Hormones The Series

Recommended Posts

insight from kudalakorn for ep3
*warning, contains spoilers*

- Some might’ve noticed that Pop and Tar used two and three fingers while expressing 8 pm and 9 pm, respectively. This is because we have a weird way when we tell time. Thailand uses a 24-hour clock when we wanna be all fancy and official. You’ll see those when they talk about time on television programs, be it news and the like. But when we speak about time verbally, we use a different system. I’m not gonna go into the details though. (I could if asked) But I wanted to leave a small explanation as to why their fingers didn’t match the time they were talking about.

- I don’t get the meaning of that emoji reply by Ice (Pop’s ex-girlfriend) at all. It made no sense in Thai or English. I way I saw it, it felt as if she was mocking him. But honestly, I’m not sure what her intention was. Pop pretty much asked if it was his fault that they broke up, and she replied with a smile emoji?

- There are two different text warnings this time around, both are different from the previous episode. (Will there be 3 next week? Is there a trend?) I always find these hilarious because of how grim they tend to come off. Like, I completely understand that it’s a serious situation and kids probably watch these without parents around, but some of the stuff are kinda common sense. I suppose they wanna remind us that we shouldn’t do this stuff, but it’s annoying that they stay on the screen for the entire scene. The first warning is alcohol related. “Alcohol can be the cause of physical fights and criminal activities. Distributing alcohol to those under the age of 20 is illegal” I’ll give them that one, but I did find that if you get so wasted, you might do something illegal and get into fights kinda funny in a weird way. The second one, however, is a little more interesting. This popped up during kru Pin (does he even deserve that title anymore?) and Toei’s scenes. “Sexual assault is illegal and immoral. Parents should closely advise their children on the matter” Okay, first of all, I’m not trying to make light of the situation because this is very serious and it does happen. We know it’s awful. But at the same time, I feel like people already know that these are terrible actions. Was it necessary to add those text for the entire duration of the scene? Or do they believe that the viewers must be fed information because we can’t think for ourselves that rape is awful? I’m sure they have good intention, but it’s a little bit insulting. Then again, it’s better to be safe than sorry, right? If it helped at least one person from committing such a terrible thing, maybe putting up with a super long and distracting warning is worth it in the end.

- Toei, what the hell was your plan exactly? Was there any backup plan? That was awfully stupid of you. It could’ve turned out really, really badly. Can you imagine if Tar never showed up? Maybe those actions deserve on-screen text warnings. “Kids, don’t ever do something this foolish when they are smarter options, like telling adults instead of putting yourself in danger.” Not even adults (because that didn’t work since they had no proof), just tell anyone else who could’ve helped you. Honestly, I was proud and mad at her at the same time. It was brave but so goddamn stupid! All in all, I find it wonderful that they shed some light on this though. A lot of other shows wouldn’t touch it. I’m glad they were able to bring some awareness to this matter.

- Oh, hey! Look who’s back! With a bottle of Pepsi which he made sure that the logo is clearly visible by the way he held it. Welcome back, Win. Where were you and what kind of trouble will you be stirring up this season?

- I thought it’d be cute to keep tract of product placements for each episode, but I totally forgot. I remember that there are at least 4. Pepsi with Win. MK Restaurants in the background when Tar and Pang went on a date. Phai’s new bike, obligatory LIFE UNBLOCKED. And the Peepo Gummy thing Phu was eating in the beginning of the episode. I probably missed some though. I wonder why they didn’t use a Samsung Galaxy to record the sexual assault. Samsung doesn’t wanna be associate with that or something?

- Next week, lesbian couple (all aboard the new ship!) and Phu makes Thee cry again because that’s all he does now.

Hello everyone! ^ ^

I normally don't post on soompi, I stalk most of the time but it's kind of hard finding people who watch Hormones and toto talk about it outside of soompi so here I am :)>-

@skeletonworks I was thinking the same, Thee needs time away from Phoo so he can get a hold of his feelings, hopefully Phoo will understand and won't continue with his "I want to remain friends" thing.

@yoyo_icecube I'm sure we will get 20 pages! :pDon't forget that all this posts were made in 2 days.
Let me share a little opinion with you:Most people here love the Win-Kwan relationship. For me, personaly, I hate Win a bit.
His impulsive behaviour has caused LOTS of problems. For example, he is the reason that Kwan cheated on her exam. He also caused the problems with kru Aor (I'd like to see her back). I hope Kwan will choose someone else (Hmogh). I'm afraid that Win will not do many good things to her. Someone here said that Win can make Kwan more human. True, but I like her like she is. She's punctual, friendly and try to do her best for everyone. Why does she need to change? But I do believe that Kwan could make Win a better person, so that's a positive thing about that relationship. I do think that Kwam will choose for Win at the end, but I don't like it.
Hmogh is silent and maybe he seems not very interessting, but I think he has many things to offer. He's a stable person who also is always friendly. I believe Kwan and Hmogh are a suitable couple, although it may be a boring relationship. 

Maybe Win should look at that girl with her red hair. We haven't seen her now, but I'm sure she will have an important role in the future.

the reason why i watch HTS Season 2 is I watched the 1st season in our tv channel in Indonesia

for me, let Tar and Toei together so Thee-Phu also Non could be together hehehe i like boys storyline sorry if you guys think I'm a weirdo :P :P

I also feel a bit confused about Toei in episode 3. She knew she would be raped. Why hasn't she done anything to avoid that. I mean, just file a claim, can't be that difficult. She should just say that she don't want to have that teacher anymore, or she should have gone to the police. However, police in Thailand is known for being a bit corrupt. 
In my own country, there were parents who were saying that their kids were sexualy insulted. The school needed to close because of that. A few months later, they just said that it was a joke because they didn't like the teacher.  :( Then the school opened again.
Maybe that's impossible in Thailand, but Toei just did nothing. I think her (male) friends would help her immediately if she informed them. 
For that girl who was filming, I do think it's good that she filmed that. Some proof of this is always good.

@JieWelcome to the thread!!! Your sig & icon is cute. He looks familiar. Who is he???Yeah that "I want to remain friends" is kinda BS I have to admit. Since he has no feelings whatsoever towards Tee, it's easy for him to say that but I guess he forgot the consequences it has on Tee...
@yoyo_icecubeI'm sure we'll get pass 20 pages :P At this rate, it could be be more than 100 pages?? LOL. I haven't even started with posting any .gif and screencaps yet. LOL.
@dephorvejBut I like Tar with Pang :)) Don't worry I LOVE BL STORYLINE. We can spazz together.After he hurt Tee like that, I don't want him to be with Tee anymore. He doesn't deserve Tee.
But like I mentioned before, I will ship them real life as in.. MarchxTou >:)
@ThomasPI do agree with you at some points but I like Win so I might be a bit biased kekeke. However, his appearance at the end of episode 3, he looked rather remorse. Like he's a change person. I'm sure he has repented all his sins in the Season 1.
I'm watching the subbed now. I don't understand why Toei made such a big fuss over keeping a pet??? And because of that Toei & Phu had a row...

@ThomasP  Win is indeed impulsive and his personality give a hard time to those around but he didn't meant any harm to Kwan, he wanted to tell her about her father having another family but didn't know the best way to do so. Honestly, I think Kwan needs a little shake in her life and on the other hand Win needs stability.
I like Hmogh with Kwan as well, they look good together so I'm kind of thorn between Hmogh and Win OTL....

@yoyo_icecube and @skeletonworks thank you for the welcome! On my signature is Shim Ji Ho XD

Is the teacher mental? What was he thinking doing it with a minor? When he was asked why he did that, he just replied that he's a human being! ~X( Then you have no right to call yourself a human!!! Disgusting! He just apologised to them like it was nothing...
@Jie No wonder he seems familiar. I've seen him in Colour of Woman and Frozen Flower. kekeke
Oh my... The ending preview.. I thought it was Phu who told Tee to get out from his life.... I felt like that was mean of Phu to say that... But it was Tee saying that he need to cut him from his life by quitting the band... :(( No wonder we see Phu face-palming at the end... Serves you right? *sigh* 
What I want right now is just for Tee to be happy. Phu, you can't have two persons at the same time. You already chose Toei. Be happy with your decision.

@skeletonworksbeing gay is not an anomaly (well at least in America), but I guess I'll give my insight about Non lol.  I think he is cute, I think his braces make him cuter and look younger.  Anyways lol, I really don't know if Non likes Thee or not.  I could see messages of both, but I think at least for now that Non is trying to just be friends for Thee.  Non may like Thee, but he's not making any moves yet.  And those looks Non was giving weren't too strong.  Another thing to point out is the Season 2 poster (the one with everyone on the floor).  You can see Non's legs touching Thee's legs, so that may give a hint into the point that Non likes Thee; however, in that same poster Dao is holding Tar's arm I think and I don't see any interaction between Dao and Tar in the series (or at least so far).

skeletonworks said: JasonZ said: Hey guys!  I'm a view from the States.  

I really debated internally if I should get an account as I have so much to do, but why the heck not?  
I am so addicted in HTS!  I started when I saw a gif of Thee and Phu kissing in the first season and I love gay romances tbh in series (mostly cuz I'm gay too lol, so let me idealize and dream....).  I first only cared about Thee and Phu at first, but then I had more time and watched the entire first season once there was eng subs out and the plot is great!  To be honest, american shows are so much edgier than this show, like have you watched Orange is the New Black or American Horror Story?!  There are so many sex scenes, rapes, cursing, fights, etc.  Makes the shows really interesting, but this series still has an interesting story.
I love the stories in this show, more so than the actual characters as their acting to me is a bit too dramatic.  Of course I love the Thee and Phu story, but I think Thee and Non would be cute.  I think you guys are analyzing that basketball poster too much, and the fact about Non not having his wallet but having his phone, lol, but that may just be me.  
I love reading these comments and updates!  Can't wait until the eng sub for Ep 3 :D

People I ship with:Kwan and Win because it'll be an interesting story line.  Mhorg is too boring and stable.Tar and Pong, they are so cute together.  And I don't think Tar and Toei is going to happen, or maybe the directors will try to put a twist in there too.Toei and Phu, they are ehhhh, I think they try to be cute but kinda fail.  But of course I'm biased against ToeiThee and Non!  They are cute together!  I honestly hope something like this will happen: Thee gets close with Non, Phu gets jealous and will try to get Thee or Non, Phu fails and gets saddened while Thee and Non live life in their merrily ways lolDao and.... (what's that girl's name?).  I think Dao's story line is so interesting and I think she has too important topics to address: teenage sex/pregnancy, and the helicopter parent (which I believe is more common in Asian culture)
For Ep 3: I thought the whole argument about that hedgehog was petty and too dramatic, it's only a petThat was stupid of Toei to not have backup planned.  Like that teacher could have sexually assaulted both girlsPop is so funny and I hope to see him more

I didn't realise that. More like I didn't really take a proper look at the official poster except that basketball poster :))Let's analyse it then hahaha
Maybe something will happen between Tar & Dao.Dao & Koi, I think their "lesbian" thing could be just a phase. Not something like Phu & Tee.Based on this photo, Tee's hand was on Phu whereas Non's leg was on Tee's but we didn't see Tee reciprocate it, which probably means he still couldn't move on or open his heart to Non ~X( It's driving me crazy if it's being played out like this...The fact that Kwan is between Mhorg and Win and the three of them not touching each other = drama. LOL. And Kwan is not facing Win... = drama.
LOL. This kind of hints dropped by the director reminds me of Reply 1994 drama. :))
Will you be watching Love Sick tonight??
