MANILA — One of the “holy trinity” of Thai boys' love (BL) series has been streaming on iWant TFC since Monday and it teaches people to accept their queer family members and friends.
“Dark Blue Kiss” revolves around the struggles of Pete (Tay Tawan) and Kao (New Thitipoom) in their relationship as the latter has yet to come out his mother.
Pete comes from a prestigious family and wants to prove that he can make a career on his own, while Kao supports his teacher mom (who's also a single parent) and freshman sister by working as a part-time tutor.
Different variations of families
Pete’s sexuality and relationship is accepted by his father, who is open to whatever his son wants. Despite this, Pete feels the pressure from his father’s peers, who expect him to follow his dad in the corporate world.
Meanwhile, Kao accepts a tutoring gig from the principal of the school where his mom works. Kao will teach the principal’s son Non (AJ Chayapol), who happens to be Pete’s archenemy in the series.
Kao is worried that his mom might not accept his love for Pete. The couple also hides their relationship from their friends, and only Sandee (Mild Lapassalan), the only girl in the group, knows the truth.
There is also Sun (Pod Supakorn), Kao’s former love interest, who owns a coffee shop, and lives with his brother Rain (Pluem Pongpisal).
Sun falls in love with his brother’s friend Mork (Fluke Gawin), whom he hires to be his assistant in the business.
Kao embodies the struggle of queer children in coming out to their families, and even to their friends, who start questioning his relationship with Pete.
Eventually Kao comes out to his mom, saying he is a relationship with Pete.
His mother proves that parents know everything about their children and will accept you for who you are.
Both also open up about their relationship to their friends, proving that they should accept their queer friends for who they are.
After resolving these issues, Pete and Kao make amends and promised to tell the truth from now on.
"Dark Blue Kiss" is available for streaming on iWant TFC and GMM TV's YouTube page.
