Between Us Episode 8: Preview
Thai BLs are seeing an all-time high in recent times but it is the chemistry between couples that have fans on their toes.
After starring in not one but many shows together, Thai actors, Boun and Prem have come to become one of the most loved side couples in lankorns.
Over the last three years, Boun and Prem have together starred in nine shows including two upcoming projects titled, ‘Between Us: The Series’ and ‘My Broccoli’.
Fans were introduced to Boun and Prem’s pairing when the couple played Win and Team in the 2019 Thai BL – ‘Until We Meet Again’.
Since both boys played the roles of the best friends of the two main leads on the show, their love story was often rushed and sidetracked.
With Boun and Prem showing palpable chemistry as Win and Team, fans started asking the makers to give them a spin-off series that shows the journey of Win-Team from being friends to a couple.
Going back in time before the events of Until We Meet Again, the new BL drama, Between Us takes a look at how a tattooed bad boy like Win fell in love with the ditzy but utterly cute Team and shows a more serious take on their romantic journey.
The new spin-off series shows Win and Team in full focus with the story of Dean and Pharm playing in the background, unlike the original 2019 show.
The highly anticipated spin-off series will be focusing not only on the romantic lives of Win and Team but how the couple finds their own romance that is different from that of Dean and Pharm.

Between Us: Reception
Richard Rushfield of BuzzFeed described the film as “a powerful, brilliantly acted character piece about two couples who meet over the course of several years to serially rip out the loose threads of their relationships.
The four-person cast of Julia Stiles, Taye Diggs, Melissa George, and David Harbour (Elliot of The Newsroom) give the sense of breathing in their parts so deeply that they are at every move haunted by their characters’ secrets and torn by rival pulls of love and contempt toward the other characters.
No corner of intimacy or secrets is left unexposed in the film that is at once hilarious and devastating.”
