Watch episode one of ‘Together With Me: The Series’ with English subtitle here.
Oh, hello there. What’s this? It’s me riding the wave of “popularity” of the outfit posts that I did for Yiwha.
As usual, let’s start by thanking the actors, the writers, the production team, the stylist, the uploaders, and the subbers (Lazysubber). Without you, whatfangirl wouldn’t exist. Let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
Premise: If you didn’t know, ‘Together With Me’ is sort of a prequel of the ‘Bad Romance’ series that came out in 2016. It chronicles the story of how ‘Knock and Korn’, one of our favorite BL couples, came to be. I had tried watching ‘Bad Romance’ earlier but hadn’t been able to get past the first episode. So, I had a vague idea about the premise but didn’t have much hope for the series as whole. But, boy was I in for a big surprise or what.
So, the episode literally starts with a hot (and I mean scorching hot) sex scene between these two obviously, beautiful and sculpted young men. Like, who are these two hunks filling up my screen, who have muscles for days and abs for years. How can they be just so perfect and have I mentioned that they have great abs? ‘Together with me’, you have my undivided attention.
The next morning, one of the boys (Knock) wakes up first and realizes that he has slept with his best friend (Korn). He seems really shocked and concerned. And, what do you do after you’ve slept with your best friend? Post in a forum asking for advice that all of your other friends visit, of course! (This is a running gag but we will get to that in later recaps).
If you were all confused (like me) about who these pretty boys were, TWM has your back. It’s now officially flashback time. So, we find out that these two boys (Knock and Korn) are childhood friends who were separated when Knock moved away. Then, they reconnect after many years when they find out that they have enrolled in the same university (so convenient! Lol). In addition, we also get introduced to the other members of our TWM gang.
- Korn: My favorite half of Knock and Korn. The haver of that great smile and those abs.
- Knock: The second half of Knock and Korn and the confused one in the pair.
- Yiwha: The queen herself – shipper of KnockxKorn and the mother of the gays.
- Fai: Yiwha’s dorm-mate, partner in crime, and an avid football player.
- Farm: KxK’s friend, who’s really cute and innocent and always uses polite language to everyone.
- P’Phu: A senior at the uni who parties, sings, and is the best dressed among the boys.
