The Episode Review
If this isn’t an intense Thai BL sex scene that I have ever seen, I’m not sure what else is. Even though there’s no nakedness, the bond between Boss Noel and Boss Noel is tangible, which is what makes Payu with Rain’s intense bond so captivating.
The drama’s intensity is being over-emphasized of course since I’m sure that the next four episodes will show Sky and Prapai’s love story in more depth, however, I think a more straight-lined story that paid equally focused attention to each couple would have been more effective than focusing solely the relationship between Rain and Payu for the first six or seven episodes.
The fight is uncalled for, but the main takeaway from this episode is the fact that Thai BLs are becoming more mature. From the roleplay kinks to NSFW scenes of make-out The episode was quite intense, which makes me hope for more dramas featuring BossNoeul as the central couple.
