Vachirawit “Bright” Chivaaree and Metawin “Win” Opas-iamkajorn are arguably the two most famous actors right now. Starring in the popular TV show called 2gether: The Series, allowed for both of them to gain international fame. Fans of these BL series would recommend that audiences watch 2gether: The series, as it is easy to watch but would captivate the audiences into this world. The TV show started off with Tine (played by Win) wanting his admirer, Green to leave him alone. In order to do this, Tine enlists the help of the University’s popular football player, Sarawat (played by Bright), as his fake boyfriend. Watch to see if this plan works or will it end up with Tine being the admirer this time?
