We TV Thailand just put out the trailer for this long-awaited drama, which is probably the most anticipated Thai BL ever. This version of “En of Love: Love Mechanics” is a longer improvisation of the angsty romance between the main characters, Mark (War Wanarat) and Vee (Yin Anan). It is an extended version of the 2020 miniseries “En of Love: Love Mechanics,” with four episodes. Studio Wabi Sabi tried to adapt popular author Faddist’s books in a small-scale movie called “En of Love.”

Even though TOSSARA and This Is Love Story were both liked, “Love Mechanics” was a hit because the main couple had such hot chemistry. This, in turn, led to calls for a full-fledged story to be made. As a result, love Mechanics will finally be shown on the big screen after a two-year delay during which the script changed hands and production houses. We don’t know the exact date yet, but we think the show will start in the last week of June.

2. Love in the Air

Love in the Air is the first show Me Mindy has put on this year. It is based on the novels “Love Storm” and “Love Sky” by MAME. The show is based on the “Enemies to Lovers” trope and has rookie actors Fort Thitipong, Peat Wasuthorn, Noeul Nuttarat Tangwai, and Boss Chaikamon in the main roles.

The recently released pilot shows a lot of anger and sensuality, typical of most of Mame’s self-funded productions. We want to know if this show will be as good as “Tharntype: The Series” and “Don’t Say No.” Will the actors’ fresh chemistry bring history to life, or will it be a downer?
