In the wind and sunshine of Phuket, high school friends Teh and Oh-aew meet again, at a tutoring school where they are preparing for a university admissions exam. They share the dream of entering the same faculty, but as they rekindle their friendship and rivalry, the pair begin to realize they have feelings for one another. I Told Sunset About You is an acclaimed miniseries that draws on the popularity of the Boys Love formula. But the series transcends the genre in its complex portrayal of sexuality, showing the subtle ways in which Teh and Oh-aew’s relationship changes over time. The production value is unusually high for a Boys Love series; the stunning cinematography perfectly captures the mood and tone of the story, lending further weight to the accomplished performances of the lead actors. Demonstrating the hidden scope of a genre that is often dismissed by critics, I Told Sunset About You is a captivating testament to the purity of teenage love.
