This also extended towards their sons. Comparing their sons’ achievements and merits, whether it be academic or extracurricular — the two fathers left no stones unturned to outshine and gloat in front of the other. It was almost like rivalry was passed down as a family heirloom and the two boys became rivals as well. Until… they grew tired and became friends. Really good friends.

However, because of their fathers’ rivalry, their friendship had to be kept under wraps. And so began a journey of secret friendship… and then perhaps a sweet secret romance?

Review Bad Buddy | แค่เพื่อนครับเพื่อน The Best Thai Drama 2021

Personally, as someone who read the book where this is based from (Behind The Scenes), I liked the final trailer more than the teaser (though I am still endeared to it). This final trailer just gives you a bit more context on what to expect because their family rivalry really plays a lot into their relationship, even affects their friendship with other people and their daily lives. It prepares you for what is to come especially when Pat and Pran start to become closer and straddle that line into love.

I can say that even if P’Aof said that the series departed a lot from the novel, the core themes of the novel are still present. This may seem like your typical lighthearted series, but the trailer finally tells you that there is more emotional turmoil to expect. It starts out with Wai (Jimmy) telling Pran about two boys falling in love like Romeo and Juliet did, but their families are too angry at each other so they cannot be together. That was at the start of the trailer bcos it tells you exactly what will happen to Pat and Pran — and yes, I can say that we are not prepared for the angst. I think it was a pretty great move to start the trailer by recalling that epic love story because it sets the mood of what is about to happen to PatPran’s very own story.
