[Review] I Told Sunset About You: From Foe to Fate ‘Teh – Oh Aew’

Amidst Phuket’s Portuguese Chinese old town charm, childhood friends that drifted apart through the years, ‘Teh’ (Billkin) and “Oh Aew” (PP), meet again at a Chinese cram school. They were there studying to be accepted into university, where both were determined to get into the Communication Arts faculty in the same university. It is a shift from being best friends who once shared a common dream to become arch-nemeses.

The important thing about this situation is.. they catch each other’s eyes more than ever. Teh and Oh Aew became close again and they learn more about each other, while growing new feelings that they’ve never felt before. The dreams and deep connection between these 2 boys are at stake at the final stage of their senior year.

The first episode aired on the 22nd of October, we’re currently at the 3rd episode and I must say I’m dragging my heart and soul through the mud in this perfect Boy Love series that Nadao has served us.

Aesthetic Story Telling

The depth of this series can be noticed in the Chinese translations in the script’s structure, which makes it easier for viewers to conform with the romance that blossoms. As for those who haven’t seen the series, try to imagine 2 childhood friends who got into a big fight over something irrelevant! Teh is the type of guy who is full of feelings but is not quite sure how to put in into words, while Oh Aew is straight forward with his feelings, is quite sensitive, and he knows who he is and what he wants in life.

These 2 meet again at a Chinese cram school to prepare for their university admissions exam. It was initially awkward, but they eventually became the best of friends again. The series portrays the development of their relationship step by step, diverting from foes to friends to being a special someone. The story is told through the character’s context by their actions, words, stares, and locations. Let’s just say that every type of communication that exists in the world is used by these two leads.

This is a Boy Love series that beautifully expresses the characters’ feelings through aesthetics which reminds me of the film ‘Call me by your name‘.

Script and Inner of Actors are in Perfect Sync

I have to applaud Billkin’s acting in this series because he takes on a very heavy role, and my heart melted a million times! Billkin’s expressions and performance shook viewers, so much we could feel the awkwardness and confusing feelings that left all of us speechless. Both in doubt of what we wanted or how we even felt. I couldn’t tell the sunset how I was feeling… Billkin’s acting skills left viewers on the edge of their seats.

Were there love scenes? Yes, there were but it was on another level. The erotic sensation that held artistic value and gave high value to the pureness of teenage love, beautifully expresses the sensational needs of both Billkin and PP. Viewers easily understood what they were trying to deliver. I think the actors and the director deserve a standing ovation for the impressive performance.

Delicate and Detailed

The production is top-notch, with an artistic play with dark colors such as red, green, and blue, used to portray the mood and tone of this series. This shows the amount of details the production team dealt with. The warm tones help drive the character’s feeling of awkwardness, every frame interpreted something, the colors to small details that deliver amazing context of the scenes.

With perfect frames from carefully selected locations that tell the story and explain the romantic feelings toward each other, even though the context is nothing out of the ordinary but every dialogue holds meaning. The storytelling is linear but it is quick and it draws the viewers in and engages them to want to jump into their screens and shake some sense into Teh. Nadao never lets us down… and this is just from 3 episodes! There’s only 2 more but I am so sure that this will be another series that will be worthy of our hall of fame.
