Starting this month, 12 upcoming Thai actors take center stage in six romantic new miniseries. The Close Friend project features talented Thai actors which include Ohm Thitiwat Ritprasert and Fluke Natouch Siripongthon who have garnered their popularity from previous Boys Love series and Kimmon Warodom Khemmonta and Copter Panuwat Kerdthongtavee who are members of the SBFIVE boy band.

The star-studded cast also includes Ja Phachara Suansri, First Chalongrat Novsamrong, Yoon Phusanu Wongsavanischakorn, Lay Talay Sanguandikul, Max Saran Rujeerattanavorapan, Nat Natasitt Uareksit, Jimmy Karn Kritsanaphan and Tommy Sittichok Pueakpoolpol.

The Close Friend miniseries showcases diverse relationships between the characters. To Act Like We are in Love, starring Ohm Thitiwat Ritprasert and Fluke Natouch Siripongthon, tells the story of a couple’s challenges in their three-year relationship.


Just be Friend is a story about an adorable cat who falls in love with his owner, featuring Ja Phachara Suansri and First Chalongrat Novsamrong.

Accidental or Intentional follows the irresistible and intensifying romance between a business major freshman and a senior in his Judo club.

Yoon Phusanu Wongsavanischakorn and Lay Talay Sanguandikul bring their chemistry to the screen with Enough for One Lifetime, exploring the protagonist’s desire to be more than friends, resorting to dark magic to make his wish come true.

Kimmon Warodom Khemmonta and Copter Panuwat Kerdthongtavee’s performance in To Think – Not to Think uncovers what it might be like to get closer to a beloved idol.

Set back in the 1990s to shower audiences with feel-good nostalgia, Your Problem, My Solution starring Jimmy Karn Kritsanaphan and Tommy Sittichok Pueakpoolpol reminisces on the purity of love and friendship.

In this Boys Love series, stories explore the romantic relationships between male characters and will be accompanied by six original soundtracks which will be available for streaming on Viu. The songs will share the same titles as the series which will include songs like “Accidental or Intentional” by Ink Waruntorn Paonil, the label’s new Synth-Pop sensation; “Enough for One Lifetime”, a song for the brokenhearted by singer O-Pavee Kotchapakdi; “To Think – Not to Think” by Earth Patravee Srisuntisuk; “To Act Like We are in Love” by Marc Tatchapon Chulkasem; “Just be Friend” by Copter Witsarut Laocharoenchai, and “Your Problem, My Solution” by Cake Pemika Jiranaraks and Muang Songmuang Chaiyariti from Serious Bacon.
