Bad Buddy แค่เพื่อนครับเพื่อน (Thai Series OST)

To be honest, I’ve been a bit bored with the recent numbers of Thai BL series, I basically watched the first couple of episodes and then dropped them quick smart! However seeing that this series is from GMMTV, I’ve a bit more confident it will at the very least be watchable… It has been a while since GMMTV has a BL series on, if I remember correctly, the last new series was Fish Upon the Sky in April?

Bad Buddy แค่เพื่อนครับเพื่อน premiered last night, October 29, 2021, and it will have a total of 12 episodes. I’m hoping this series will be quite good, fingers crossed, because one of the leads, Ohm Pawat, was in the excellent He’s Coming to Me from 2019 which would be one of my top 5 Thai BL series! I’m not familiar with the other lead, Nanon Korapat, but he’s singing the theme song for this new series.

OhmNanon’s Chinese interview on TikTok, January 16, 2022. They arrived at about 32-minute mark on the video. A simple live-streaming got warnings and banning because sometimes they spoke Thai and not Chinese, that’s what happened on Chinese site…

Update January 23, 2022: After the rubbish ending to 1000 Stars last year, this series is another disappointing series from GMMTV. Maybe I shouldn’t blame GMMTV, it is the source material that is not very good. If you are looking for good storyline, then I suggest don’t bother with this series. I was expecting real angst to the story after knowing the synopsis but that never happened… The whole story is basically one idea of pretending from beginning to end without any surprises or twists to it… Also the two of them escaping to the coast reminded me of Addicted novel, especially them shouting to the sea, LOL… But in Addicted, there was so much angst leading to them escaping, here it just felt like childish rebellion to their parents more than anything. However, if you just want to see a fluffy cutesy series, then this may be for you. I stuck it out, watching at 2× speed for most of the series basically wanting to find out the real reason for the animosity between the 2 families and it turned out to be such a lame reason. OK that reason may hurt at the beginning but after so many years, it is not like she couldn’t get a good job (both families seemed to be in the same business so what did the scholarship have to do with the hate for so long or did I miss something) or it destroyed her life because of that. And if that hurt so much why still live next door to each other? She was so determined to transfer her son out of high school to be away from Pat but still live next door?

Before the reason was unveiled, I was conjuring up in my mind that Pat’s father and Pran’s mother had an affair and maybe Pat and Pran were half brothers, hence the effort to keep them apart, LOL… The ending? No resolution at all, still pretending now they are in the workforce, that would be a very unhealthy relationship and is that a hint for season 2? Well I won’t bother with season 2 if that is the case.
