  1. I was impressed with the ending..because it says a lot to stay on pitch ....I wish they would drop the register...his voice would really open up I think that was Karma. Payback for how he acted with Thun....LOL. I'm thinking only Ngoon...but they certainly left enough for a season 2...there is still the rest of the book to do.
  2. Ah ok...yeah the on court convo was angsty...and necessary to move the story forward emotional conflict always works ! I also think the reason we didn't see more non-playing was the use of more than one camera...they could make the edits so it appeared they played well although their shooting form told you they didn't have a clue..lol I also think what made HCTM shine is that even without the subs ( like in a old-time silent movie) you could follow plot of the story - the dialogue added to a deeper understanding. Some think Sotus is the Holy Grail...others ( me ) think even with subs it wasn't clear - so there's that...raw was painful. thanks ! it's a linguistic challenge all the way around sometimes...I think it's rather elitist of me to intentionally watch a show in another language then demand subs..when I can help myself a bit...although it seems with the increase in international viewers, more BL series are aired with subs right off the starting block. I know 2moon2 too will be sub at airing. Not sure what they are going to do with Theory of Love - gmmtv is kinda slow on the uptake with subs...
  3. Well considering none of them had ever played basketball..while angsty they sorta kinda ok...along with the tight editing... I usually try to find out who the directors are - those with cinematic background and/or 3 or more series under their belts generally produce a higher quality and intelligent BL series and understand the phrase " adaptation of a novel " more than those who shoot page by page. There are perhaps 4 such directors out there in the BL Universe. HCTM director is one of them. I've learned to watch raw so I don't get caught up reading dialogue on first watch. My Mandarin is much better than my Thai only cause I watch Chinese Historical Fantasies.....but I get by. Actually,
  4. Because there was a spirit in the temple. Spirits are not banned. The temples are places where spirits could be so in the case of Mes, he wasn't out of place. Considering the spiritual and philosophical nature of Buddhism, acknowledgement of the spirit would be more the norm than exception. For me it's when the Monk started to speak about making merit for someone else ...the eye shift of the monk and the camera focus caught my attention...also his mention of Karma which considering how everything played out in the end was for all of them, Mes included - the interaction in the street scene confirmed it for me... I really respect this director - he's subtle but direct in what he wants from a scene almost demanding that the viewer pay attention to the minute details, which in this series made watching raw was wonderful.
  5. Thun realized a connection though the drawing of the bracelet and the one his mother was wearing which is how they ended up at the grave site. My comment was more in retrospect of how she managed Thun's coming out. Prior experience in the same situation ( and same man - but who knew then) LOL
  6. Yep...they always gave me that impression twice at the house and once at the temple...you'd miss it if you weren't looking ...What I don't remember was the 3rd precept for not reincarnating. I know Thun talked about Mes's red aura and mention 2 of them..the last one was an ah ha ..but it worked. I'm a member of the school of this is the most intelligent BL series that I've seen in a while...this director is seasoned and knows what he's doing. Can't wait to see Dark Blue Kiss which is shooting now with TayNew. See if his magic continues.
  7. Yes it did...but we were so deep into Thun/Mes that when we found out I thought 3 things : Wow what a brilliant twist to a story, Ah so that's why mom was especially sensitive to Thun, and ooo that's creepy - but she didn't know he had died, but knew he was gay, had gotten married etc. etc... like you said...there appeared to be cosmic forces at work. I was annoyed I get annoyed with Prai and other characters like her ( see Trapped ) who can't read the room correctly...that is, if he doesn't return affection back to you and treats you like a sister-best friend...that's prolly what you are to him move on...it would avoid that whole angst thing... but <sigh> female actors need jobs too !
  8. It's funny because Thailand was on track last year to become the first...don't know what happened...perhaps they can settle for being # 2 if another country doesn't beat them...
  9. Agreed not a fav genre of mind...I don't get this whole thing of making men into the image of a woman...lol
  10. From what I've read, MAME ( the author of the LBC Universe) owns all the rights including the names of the characters. Unless she give permission, sells the rights or makes it herself, it's prolly not going to happen. Right now she's pushing out the Thantype story so we'll see what happens after that...however there is no breath holding. Not to mention, the boys are off doing other things, will they want to come back and do a season 2 ? Just released today
  11. See now you want to make this MPREG.....there was no mention of children.
  12. the image did it for me...and if I word smith that a bit...to read..." deny" the truth... so we "must" accept it... it's even a rougher read,.. 3 days to go
  13. so, let's say the whole Mes leaving, returning, and finding out why/how he died takes another 1.5. mo. that leaves 6 months until Ching Ming again. Will the series end as it began ? Full circle ? Question is this, was the scene in the E8 preview Qing Ming.
  14. Another thing I love about this director - his sense of timing is such that we the audience can't time stamp it...I knew it had been a while..but the two months is interesting which by the way is the length of time this series has been on... the brother is deep !
  15. Yes he does say that a lot...it has a meaning I'm sure...right now I'm banking the jar of stars Oh yeah that scene and the other one...makes everyone a puddle...LOL Oh I was thinking way out there.like reincarnated back into himself as he is now. In other words...he leaves and comes back as himself at this point...with full memories..a gift if you will. Told ya it was out there...ok so I'm gonna go now and watch selected clips of the preview for E8...would be great is a sub was 7 was done tonight ! Can't wait for the cards....LOL
  16. well it was put out there...and is resting..so far this director does waste camera time..on nonessential stuff...it all come back so maybe..just maybe when you wish upon a star...LOL I would agree except, Mes has already say he has broken the rules...using his powers to grasp items etc...so you can't put toothpaste back into the tube...maybe there are a couple other rules that can be broken now...including ( this is far fetched) reincarnating back into your original self/body...I know I'm pushing the envelope here.. Special dispensation perhaps...well see next week for sure.either way..bring tissues.
  17. Oh I so agree And this is so rare in BL the actual " coming out " I thought that scene and those leading up to that admission were wonderful. I also think that at that same moment we all reflected on our own coming out story. It was refreshing to say the least. There is this question that floats through - how do we make this work inspire of the barriers ? Like you said, it's two people trying to connect. I love and respect this directors work. His storytelling skills cut deep and just bring you into what is going on. He really pulls the emotions out of the actors and puts them on the table. Yes, we always want more I think however it ends will be HE. This series is clearly in my rewatch column.
  18. Somehow, I don't think Id have a problem with him remaining a ghost as long as " touch " remained. Of course human would be much better... Well they seemed to have focused on that several times, on than birthday (when they were outside) when Mes left him the jar of stars with the note, and even in flashback when Thun's mother gave a jar of stars to Mens. So I can't think that all this "wish talk" ends in nada...lol I'm hopeful. But don't you think that just Thun's ability to see and talk with ghosts is enough? This supernatural theme was threaded through the whole series. So anything that occurs outside the realm of natural order is supernatural which means miracles can happen. Ah but sometimes first love is the last one... . Clearly I don't think this happens to Thun...I think there will be an HE - perhaps not one that the fans like..but one that the characters can live with which, should be happiness in itself.
