  1. I watched episode 2 again last night and how I missed the innocent flirting from Tee :) They took 3 times saying good bye before parting. Each boy was left with good feelings about their best friend coming back into their life. The chemistry was oozing through the screen. The sound quality was great. Drake's performance was spot on. The way he played with the umbrella while speaking shyly, saying Tee should let P'som wash his hair instead of him. It's so natural and smooth. He brings Mork to life through his acting.

     

    I miss all that in episode 10.

     

    Looking forward to episode 11.

  2. I agree with all the sentiments and observations regarding the episode so I don't have much to add. I notice Drake had a sniffle in a couple scenes. He seemed nursing a cold so his voice was muffled and he wasn't as expressive. Just a guess. 

     

    There's one detail I think important between the English sub and the Vietnamese sub. Mama mentioned Tee would go study abroad so it was good to part with Mork early. The English sub didn't make it clear about this point.

    Au's coming out and admitting his feelings To Mork was a little unclear to me. He mentioned he didn't want to get Mork hurt when he was close to Mork rather than emphasizing his romantic feelings toward Mork. At least we now knew he ordered and received the DVD envelope. It was left in his room. Or at least that's what the show wanted us to assume. It didn't really make that matter any clearer. 

     

    We've seen Mork's love challenged and Mork was willing to let go of Tee so he wouldn't drag Tee down with him. The end of this episode set up so that it's Tee's turn to be challenged in the same manner. Would Tee value Mork's continuing education and let go of Mork? We shall see. 

     

    In the end, I didn't feel emotionally connected to this episode as I did with previous ones. I hope it gets great again in the final 2 episodes.

     

    There was a notice in Vietnamese sub that the show wouldn't be on next week. I don't know if that's still true.

    After looking at the videos it looks like the shirt just had the sleeves cut off. What do you think? Just cut sleeves off or use a tank top that has the arms hemmed? or maybe just let the buyer cut it off or not?

     

    I found it for sale here https://www.walmart.com/ip/New-Way-849-Men-s-Sleeveless-Smiley-Face-Emoticon-Emoji-Happy-Smile-Medium-White/774860533?variantFieldId=actual_color

     

    But it's not 100% match because it doesn't have the word "smile" on it :)

    I bought one any way. I really want the correct matching one though. 

     

    It doesn't have to be autographed. Though if you can get it done for limited amount, or even just one, it could be valuable as a special fan gift or at auction.

    40448940_292222171371868_331130489913579 Phillipino fans will be able to buy them from some of the facebook fan pages. Some of the fan groups in other countries will have them soon.

    I will be making an IG store and a website to sell Drake's designs but I am waiting for Drake to take some more pics.  We are also working on more shirt/ink color combinations and a silk-screened autograph on the back of the shirts. We will be making other items such as hats and autographed photos available in the future as well. If you guys have any ideas on photos or other items you would like to be included do not hesitate to send me a message and I will discuss it with Drake.

    It would be cool to have that white sleeveless shirt with the smiley face for sale and autographed. 

    Both Mork and Tee wore it so it's very easy to sell.

    Great to hear he has an entrepreneurial spirit :D. That makes me wonder about this t-shirt on Amazon from a while ago. The listing on Amazon doesn't exist anymore, but the text said 'Drake's Circle Lich Dragon' and 'Drake Laedeke's first Dragon design in Red'. At the time I thought it could just be a random unrelated thing, but if he's working on new shirts featuring dragons, maybe this one was designed by him as well?

     

     

    There's no info of where it's being sold. Does anyone know?

    I wish the official subtitles were more accurate... It makes me wonder how much else is incorrect that nobody has brought up yet. I'll have to rely on you to point those out, because I'm not anywhere close to understanding an entire episode myself. 

     

    This is what I love about the Viet sub. They have been doing a great job keeping it close to Thai as much as possible. They even translated Mork swear words. For example, when talking to P'Lek, Tee asked Mork if he would accept P'Lek as papa and Mork mouthed the word "richard simmons". He has a potty mouth on him hahaha. Such a contrast to Tee's polite language.

    Like Mellialuna said, it's strange to see P'Som in the credits when she only appears one time in the series! So I came to the conclusion that she must have an importance in the series one way or another...

     

    I thought about it and here is a theory : if I remember correctly, P'Som says in the only ep. we see her that she has a new man in her life... Couldn't this man be Tee's father!? Maybe that's a crazy idea but it could tally with what Tee's father says to Mei when they argue in Tee's room : something like "You misunderstood, I already told you that I'm not gay"... Indeed if he is in a relationship with P'Som who is to all appearances a beautiful woman, it's more difficult to define him as "gay" than if he was dating a guy "who totally looks like one". As for him, he probably considers his lover as a woman, but if Mei caught them in bed she could have seen the only part of P'Som's body that remains "manly"... that would explain why, in her eyes, her ex-husband is well and truly gay*.

     

    Does that hypothesis seem totally absurd for you guys??? 

     

    * (I'm sorry, I lack of english vocabulary too much to be able to clearly express what I wanted to say here... So I hope it's still understandable and not to clumsy. I could neither find good turns of phrase nor better words. As for the word "define", it really doesn't suit me because, obviously, a person can't be "defined" by her sexual orientation, that would be a total aberration)

     

    "Label" is another frequently used word for this case.

     

    But yeah, I also have this same guess after the last episode. I just rewatched all of them today.

     

    One other thing that jumped out at me is Mork and Tee conversation on the side of the street after the hospital discharge. Mork mentioned Tee disappeared for a year and they became strangers after that. And it's been established they haven't seen each other for 3 years. So what is the time line here?  How would you interpret these statements?

     Yeah but when he tried to get the money, he had 2.083 bath. How did he manage to find so much in such short notice?

    Morn told him he has to pay before the next day, the day he passes with Tee (first date).

    I don't deny Mork gaves him the money,  But where did he find it?

     

     

    I always thought 2.083 Baht is what left in his account after he withdrew 20.000. So he had a total of 22.083 in his account to begin with.

    6- More than that, how Mork manage to have those 20.000 baths ?

     

    7- 2? I remember her only in one, but that's true it's strange to see her in the generique each time, while her time's screen was so low ... 

     

    6. Mork has a DVD selling business and it pays well according to his intro

    7. You're right. It's 2 scenes in 1 episode. I corrected it.


  10. There are only 3 episodes left in the series but some of the early mysteries still remained. 

     

    1. Bambi's second(??) phone in Tee's possession. This is from episode 2 when Mork tried to call Bambi for Tee but a black phone was shown ringing in Tee's bag. We have seen several times Bambi has a pink phone.

     

    2. Au made a phone call to "Bambi" from Mork phone and totally ignored the conversation when "Bambi" called back. I still don't know the intention. We don't know if this is real "Bambi" or not.

     

    3. Bambi, Au, Tee relationship. Mama knows Au well and the 2 families are close. So it's certainly Tee and Au know each other, even though they're not friends. Tee must also have know Bambi is Au's sister. And yet Mork is kept in the dark of this circle.

     

    4. Who pulled some strings on the Principal? He changed his mind about Mork's expulsion the next day.

     

    5. Au is in possession of the porn DVDs envelope. Did he order it? Did he receive it or he just didn't mail it?

     

    6. Morn's tuition money and what he has been up to on days he is not having tutoring classes.

     

    7. What happened to P'Som? She showed up 2 times (not 2 --episodes--) and like disappeared. Will she have any more involvement in the story?

     

    I leave out Au and Mork pants-down business since it's not quite a *mystery* and next episode seems to resolve it.

     

    So what do you guys think about these points? Did I miss anything? Please chime in.

    After 9 episodes, my opinion of the show and its actors hasn't changed by much.

     

    อาตี๋ของผม is the best Thai gay drama series I have seen so far. It does have some issues, but I've encountered much worse going back all the way to LS, which was my previous #1 despite its many flaws. There have been a few audio problems, the camera work isn't always great, I don't like how some scenes were cut, I've questioned the director's vision at times (mainly Tee's behavior/Frank's acting), and the writing has annoyed me when characters haven't learned anything from past mistakes.  

     

    Overall it has still given me exactly what I want. A gay drama with a story I can relate to, that draws me in and takes me on an emotional rollercoaster ride, making me feel sad enough to cry, and happy enough to smile along with the characters. The hunt for clues to solve the mysteries of the early episodes has also been very entertaining, and it's something I miss in other shows. 

     

    While Frank will have to work on his acting, his performance hasn't detracted from my enjoyment of the show. I think some annoyances can be attributed to the director, while others do require more skill through experience or classes. I look forward to seeing him improve for his next role.

     

    Drake is my favorite Thai actor. He is expressive with his body language, voice and eyes. His acting skill is one of the reasons why I enjoy this show so much.

     

    You spoke my mind so a big thank you for putting it so eloquently. 

     

    Personally, the story resonates with me because I did something like Mork did with my best friend in 10th grade :(

    Believe it or not we're still good friends now and I told him about the series hahaha. He's straight and married now. He also got my first kiss. Dude was a saint to me. Didn't disappear from my life after that time so it wasn't as dramatic.

    Mork is very impulsive though, we see one scene where he threw away the ring (I think he did, my connection lagged for the front parts) and asked Tee to get away from him, then later on when Tee suddenly appeared to rescue him from the robbery (which I think was hilarious, holding a knife but being chased away by another boy) Mork suddenly became close with Tee again

     

    Yeah my connection was lagging at this scene so I rewatched it on youtube and Mork did throw the ring right in front of Tee.

    Tee got really sad and walked away. We already know Mork is a sucker at seeing Tee's suffering. He couldn't handle it:

     

    ep2, pushed Tee to the ground and came right back saying sorry;

    ep8 where he was under the blanket and heard Tee saying Tee was scared and alone in a quiet street and Mork would change his tone right away. 

    ep9, seeing Tee's sad and dejected face, walking away on the bridge, it's just eating at him inside. You can feel regret from Mork as Tee walked away.

     

    So after the robbery, he was just shocked and hungover and went with Tee since he didn't really know what to do next. What Tee said at the shrine reminded how much Tee loved him and how much he loves Tee.

  13. Mork has been under heavy pressure 3 episodes in a row. Poor guy. Every time though, Tee would come around to pull him up. Tee could pack a punch!!! Au'd better watch it. :D

     

    We get to see Frank's acting a bit better in this episode. His body language isn't as dynamic as Drake's for sure. He's too focus on delivering the lines and at times forgetting to emote via hands, shoulders, facial expressions.... Drake is very good at doing this.

    I'm glad this episode gave me some happy moments after all, as well as a large pile of sad ones. I'm not worried yet anything happened, even with that split second scene in the teaser for episode 10.

     

    As for the thing Mork was searching for, I have a feeling that will show up again as well. :)

     

    Yeah, it was well done with some cute scenes: 


     

    Spoiler

     

     Mork peeking at Tee's shorts, playing with the puppies, flash back of Mork zipping up Tee's shorts, fortune reading at Guan Yin shrine

    I hope it turns out Mork just passed out in Au's room, Au didn't do anything because he respects his friend too much, and Mork will stay worried until the next time he sees Au and asks him about it.

     

     

     

    Spoiler

     

    Why would Mork even think he had sex with Au when to him it's just his best friend.

     

     

    Yay, Grandma is here!!!!! She's so cute. She's giving him Lactasoy.
