It’s episode nine and we finally got the kiss that we deserved (with tongue!) between Arthit and Kong (took them long enough). Also, here I am – single af, sitting alone and depressed and writing recaps about a kissing couple (of a fictional BL show) on Valentine’s Day. The irony isn’t lost on me.
Anyway, let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
It’s a new day at Ocean HQ and Kong and Arthit have just arrived at work. In the elevator, Kong complains to Arthit that he’s a little bit tired as he couldn’t sleep well last night. Upon hearing this, Arthit gets visibly concerned and tells him to go home instead as he might have a fever but Kong declines to do so. At this moment, P’Durian enters the lift as well but surprisingly, instead of being a PDA-phobe, Arthit ignores her completely and tries to hold Kong’s hand right in front of her! (Is this what we call – character development?)
I usually write these recaps after dinner. However, I still get hungry the moment I sit down and fire up my computer. And, even though I know I will definitely get hungry, I am never prepared. For example, right now I’m hungry but there’s nothing to eat in my fridge and it’s too late to go out to get some. Ugh. Please someone get me some food. Please.
Before starting, just a disclaimer that today’s recap is a little bit different as it doesn’t follow the chronological order of the episode but instead focuses on what happened to our characters. So, let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
Kong and Arthit
Last episode, SOTUS S ended on a cliffhanger but weirdly, it was never mentioned in this episode. Kong and Arthit go straight from fighting to working very closely on the presentation for the new product competition (Arthit is making a grill that doesn’t emit smoke). While Kong is helping Arthit, Arthit is acting like a mother and telling Kong not to stare at the computer screen for too long as it might affect his eyesight. Oy vey.
You know, I’m a big fan of pretty people. But also, I’m not pretty at all. So, it’s quite sad to realize that these pretty ones are so out of your league that there’s virtually no chance that you’ll ever be together with them. (They probably don’t even know you exist.) Sigh. Anyway, let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
So, after he finds out that Kong has moved next to his apartment, Arthit is pretty angry. He doesn’t answer his door, doesn’t pick up Kong’s phone, and is generally avoiding him at all cost. Kong tries his best to talk to him but to no avail.
Since Arthit isn’t responding to his calls, Kong goes into full ‘make-up’ mode. He leaves food for Arthit in front of his door (like Book and Frame) and even buys pink milk for him and P’Earth (because he’s nice like that). He leaves it on his desk at the office and to make sure that Arthit knows about it later, P’Todd is there to witness this scene.
After that, Kong meets up with Nai and P’Durian to start his intern journey. P’Durian, with her fabulous earrings, then assigns Kong to the production department while Nai gets to go the quality control department.
Hello kids, how are ya’ll doing? Did ya’ miss me? 😛 I missed you guys a lot. Again, like all of my resolutions, this one fell apart pretty quickly, eh? Haha. I’m sorry but I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Sometimes I feel like I’m just .. I don’t know .. failing at life. So, I just freeze and ignore everything that’s happening around me.
Anyway, on that very positive note, let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
We continue from the last episode where we saw Kong tagging along with P’Earth and Arthit to inspect some factories. In the car, P’Earth wants to know more about Arthit and how he used to behave during their uni days. When Kong tells her that Arthit used to be the head hazer and used to pick on him, she’s quite surprised (since, Arthit acts very differently in the office). Arthit isn’t amused by this and tells Kong to stop laughing and stop talking about him. But of course, Kong continues to chuckle and tells him that he’s just telling the truth. (Lol. Such a smart ass.)
I don’t know why I always set myself up for disappointment. I thought by having a recap schedule, I would be able to adhere to it but surprise, surprise, I’m late, once again. Lol. Anyways, let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
Today, we start the episode at Ocean Electric. P’Danai (the manager) asks Arthit to research and prepare a list of suppliers that produce electronic pots. Arthit agrees and is about to start on the task when this stupid-mofo-sob P’John orders Arthit to find a new supplier to produce spoons as their previous one cancelled on them. Arthit tells him that he has to do P’Danai’s task but P’John says that his job is very urgent and tells him to complete that one first. (Omg P’John, if the suppliers cancelled, then it’s your job and responsibility to find an alternative. And, if it’s that urgent, DO IT YOURSELF. Ugh. This has to stop soon.)
So, the dutiful employee Arthit, sets upon the task to find this elusive new supplier. He tries calling many companies but doesn’t succeed. Luckily, his old manager – P’Young – helps him once again and says to try calling Siam Polymer Group (SPG). He tells him that they were Ocean’s old supplier and could possibly help him with this problem. He also suggests Arthit to ask P’Earth for Winn’s phone number or SPG’s office phone number. After speaking with P’Earth, Arthit gets SPG’s office phone number. Unfortunately, when Arthit tries to contact them, nobody picks up the phone at the other end. So, P’Young offers to drive him to the company so that he can talk to them directly. (Now, that’s how a manager should be. Helpful and supportive.)
Watch episode two of ‘Together With Me: The Series’ with English subtitle here.
You know, I legit have all the time in the world to do so many things (including writing these recaps) but I always end of procrastinating and not doing anything. Maybe, it’s because I have too much time? I don’t know. How will I ever improve? Ugh. Anyway, let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
Last time, the episode ended in a cliffhanger when Knock mistakenly grabbed Korn’s hand in the middle of Amphawa market. This episode, we continue from there. While everyone is shocked and they know something’s up, none of them say anything out loud and carry on like nothing happened. The group continue their tour of Amphawa on a boat with Knock and Plern Pleng (PP) in the front acting all ‘couple-y’ and Korn and Yiwha at the back with Yiwha passing snide comments.
Later in the evening, Knock and PP return to Knock’s house after a full day of activities where she “accidentally” knocks over (see what I did there) the lunch box that Korn brought over in the last episode. She says sorry and Knock pretends to be okay with it and tells her not to worry about it. They then talk about his childhood and how he was so close to Korn and how he used to row the boat in the river to see him. (Wow, that’s dedication.) PP seems jealous but Knock tries to reassure her by saying that he’s just a friend and she’s his girlfriend. Pfftt, we will see how long that will last.
So, I found this amazing website today: Pealsview, that has recapped several episodes of Love Sick. Their reviews are clever and full of insights into the story and the characters of the series. But, it also made me a little bit sad as I could never come up with such brilliant materials on my own. My recaps are just a bunch of words with shallow observations. And mostly, it’s about objectifying hot dudes. Sigh.
Can you tell that I’m in need of some attention today? Anyway, let’s recap. Spoilers ahead.
So, where were we? Last episode, Arthit wasn’t pleased with Kongpop’s surprise visit to his office. While returning to his room, Arthit tells Kongpop that he’s a busy man and is constantly meeting with clients at work. So, if he turns up unannounced, Konpop might not be able to meet him and Arthit doesn’t want Kongpop to waste his time waiting for him.
While it’s a reasonable explanation, I do feel that he’s still not comfortable about showing his relationship to his office mates. Also, I felt that in the previous episodes, the relationship between Arthit and Kongpop was being sidelined in favor of the uni and office stories. But thankfully, that situation gets rectified here with plenty of scenes where we see them spending quality time as a couple.
As soon as they reach the room, Arthit is quite concerned about the cleanliness of his place and without hesitation Konpop just straight away starts helping him clean it and even does the dishes.
