Ahead of the May 27 premiere of “I Promised You The Moon,” the much-awaited sequel of the hit coming-of-age series “I Told Sunset About You,” Nadao Bangkok on Thursday released the short film “Last Twilight In Phuket.”

Dubbed as a side story to '“I Told Sunset About You,” the short film now out on YouTube treats viewers to the last moments of Teh (Billkin Putthipong) and Oh-aew (PP Krit) in their hometown as a couple.

The sequel “I Promised You The Moon” focuses on the couple's struggles in college. 

The short film, from the same director of “I Told Sunset About You” Boss Naruebet, shows Teh and Oh-aew before they go to college. They visit their go-to places in Phuket like Soi Rommani and Phuket Old Town.
