    My Engineer Ep11: a Thai BL Drama in Review

    My Engineer Ep11: a Thai BL Drama in Review

    In this episode of Check It/Round Table Onna discusses My Engineer episode 11 of the Thai BL drama series, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlpQQFpKcBU&list=PLrUEXgucMM08MZbRhOvzcbWuH1A4gONIX&index=41,  and how this episode features Mek and Boss and how their relationship develops.  Boss goes to a talent audition and is blindsided by his girlfriend, Fawn's agent, who tells him that he is worthless and will ruin Fawn's life and career if he continues with their relationship.  Boss then gets drunk and goes to Mek's apartment, where he says he gave up on the audition and Mek states if he cannot be honest with him, he can leave.  Boss then completely unravels stating how worthless he is.  Throughout this series, the one thing Onna likes about Mek is that he continually states that the reason Boss has not really found anyone to be with him is because he has not found someone worthy of him, not because Mek thinks he is worthy of him, simply because he considers Boss to be worth a lot.  He then admits to liking Boss and shows him a collection of pictures of them together throughout their times at college.  Boss then admits he too has liked Mek, and they become a couple.  Ram also discovers in this episode that his father is having an affair with his best friend, who is his neighbor girl.  Ram is about to spend the night out in the rain with his dogs and King finds him and invites him to stay at his condo, in spite of King's great fear of dogs.  King also calms Ram down as he realizes that something quite seriously wrong has occurred.  The next morning, King's BL-loving sister descends with her two boys and she jokingly plays into this idea by saying he and Ram have moved in together. The sister then leaves, with Ram terrified of the children, King terrified of the dogs, and the two of them trying collaborate to survive that day.  It's all here.  It's all real.

Also, Ram ends up coming over to King's house with his friends and he and King have a moment in King's garden where King says that if Ram needs to decompress or talk things over, he can always come over and talk with King.  It is at this time that Ram states King is the person who understands him.  It's all here.  It's all real.
