[TharnType] Episode 3

Okay, so this review is pretty much going to be more of a rant and most likely not very thorough because I did not enjoy it that much and the ending just completely pissed me off. I keep trying to tell myself that this is a show. This is fiction. But I’m upset.

The episode basically picks up where episode 2 left off with Type entering the bedroom and Tharn is standing there smiling all goofy because he heard what Type said to Champ outside the door. So Type gives Tharn some food as a way to say thank you but of course he can’t help but continue to be mean. So he says it’s only because he doesn’t want to “owe him”.


Type is trying hard to keep up his punk attitude and Tharn is tossing everything off his shoulders with a quickness, completely unfazed because he actually likes Type. We already know that Tharn is physically attracted to Type but we see in this episode that he thinks of him in a more caring way. You know…when he’s not completely lusting after him and trying to get in his pants.


Type fakes being sleep that night because he’s determined to know what Tharn has been doing to him while he’s asleep. Only he finds out that besides planting kisses all over his face, Tharn hasn’t been doing anything besides wishing him good dreams. And of course this makes Type feel all fuzzy inside.

Fast forward to a new scene with Type trying to be the big bad wolf again and Tharn starts treating it like a game. Like, I know this is only the third episode, but it’s the first episode where Tharn’s feelings haven’t been hurt by Type.

So after Tharn and Type have words in one particular scene, Tharn says something that leaves Type all flustered and he rushes off to take a shower. So Type is in the shower right? But when he gets out, his boxers are no where to be found. He opens the door to find Tharn standing there holding his boxers with this big doofy grin on his face. And Tharn has the audacity to say that he’ll give them back if Type takes a shower with him.

Type is all like, “wtf, man”. And Tharn is all like “let me in, little pig, before I blow your house down”. And then he barges his way in and rips his shirt off in point 3 seconds, pinning Type to the wall in the process. Seriously, how did he even unbotton his shirt that fast, let alone get it off his body that quickly??

And he wastes no time placing kisses all over Type and in my mind, Tharn is now an official creep. I wanted to like Tharn. Really, I did. But he’s just far too lustful for me. I was hoping that their romance would have a cute, slow development but it’s all just lust and anger. Lust from Tharn and anger from Type.

So of course Type is resistent at first and is all “stop. no. get away”, but it shifts from him trying to refuse Tharn, to refusing his own lustful feelings instead. So he starts to kiss Tharn back and even allows Tharn to go down on him.

And when it’s all done and over, Type pushes him away and runs out the bathroom, screaming at himself to hate him and find him disgusting again. Only he can’t because he actually enjoyed it. Go figure.

What happens between this scene and the ending scenes doesn’t really matter so I’m just gonna skip ahead because this is the part that truly pissed me off.

Type is walking with Techno from soccer practice when two gay guys come up to them. One is a gay guy and the other is what is called a “ladyboy” in Thailand. After drooling all over Type and making very sexually inappropriate comments about him, they ask can they take his photo to put it on some type of cute boy fan page.

He says no of course but they are extremely pushy and start taking his photo anyway. But they don’t just take his photo, they completely invade his personal space and start groping him and rubbing all over him and laying all over him and going on and on about how handsome he is. It was completely over the top and could without a doubt be considered sexual assault. So what does Type do? He blows up at them! And rightfully so.

Then he starts mouthing off at them and calling them disgusting and of course they get mad in return and insist that they did nothing wrong. And before storming off, they threaten Type that he will regret ever messing with them.

And loooo and behoooolllddd, what do they do?? They blast this little incident all over facebook, post his picture online, and even send the story to the university forums.

And this is where I’ve just completely had enough. And the posting wasn’t just a recount of what happened. No! Of course they made Type out to be this wretched human being, completely leaving out the fact that he said NO to having his picture taken, NO to being on the fan page, and that they made a bunch of sexual comments about him and groped him! Of course they leave all that out! Of-freakin-course.

So now Type is walking around the university and everyone hates him and are calling him names because they think he is some horrible person who sought out to torment those two people that approached him.

I’m so mad. I’m so freakin mad.

And instead of making his own post and telling his side of the story, he chooses to stay quiet and let people think these things about him.

I’m at a loss. A complete loss. This series is getting worse by the episode. I have no idea if I even want to continue at this point. If I hadn’t been following the development of this series for all these months, this would, without a doubt, be the last episode I watch. But I have been waiting for this series from the moment it was announced that Tharn and Type were getting their own series. I am a Love By Chance fan and Tharn and Type were a side couple that I wanted more background on. But this…

This here is just sooooo freakin disappointing.

And Techno! Effin useless Techno! He was there the entire time when the gay kids were rubbing themselves all over Type and he chooses not to say anything as well? Useless. Fricken useless.

I really did not enjoy this episode and I have no idea how it’s going to get better from here. I just…

      Lol! But nah, I won’t be. I’ve already watched the spoilers for the rest of the series and the special episode. Completely wasted an hour and a half of my life because I still didn’t like it. Tharn is still a pushover and Type still hasn’t won me over. He clearly gets all his anger and pettiness from his dad which was even more of a turnoff for me. Like…I guess it was all supposed to be funny? But I was bored and annoyed watching the special episode. I just simply don’t like TharnType and probably never will.
      Now, MewGulf, on the other hand. They are great. I will like them apart from the characters they play.

    Well we are the total opposite because I am so not here for the MewGulf stuff. I will explain below.

    As for the special episode with Type’s dad, I laughed so hard. Like he totally own that episode. I really don’t agree with him taking up a weapon against Tharn though. And the cat ears, that had me cracking up too. What kind of fetish is this Tharn?

    As for MewGulf, I am tired of hearing the fans insist that they are really dating. Sigh!! Goodness gracious me.

    And to make matters worse in my mind was an interview I watched with Gulf talking about breaking up with his girlfriend. Maybe you have already heard about the controversy surrounding that and have a better understanding than I do.

    Gulf did insist that he did not break up with his girl because he was ousted by the fans for dating her. He said he told her since they are both busy it was best to go their separate ways. I call bullshit on that. Sorry if you don’t like those words.

    What man is going to break up with his girlfriend just because he is a little busy with work? If this was the case, then we all would be single right? I feel it was the way the fans reacted to the whole situation is what cause the breakup.

    If these fans love these people half as much as they say they do, then why care about who they date? That’s their private lives. Leave it alone until they feel ready to talk about it, if at all. I see this so much in Asian media the most and I am over it.

    I can’t remember his name because I stopped following K-Pop eons ago, but a K-pop Idol said his girlfriend is pregnant and he is going to marry her. Yet the fans are mad about this. And are outside the SM Entertainment building protesting to get him kicked out of the company. So hold on, they don’t want this man to feed his child?

      Yikes, I haven’t heard about any of that. When I said I will like them apart from the characters they play, I meant, I will just like them as actors. I don’t really follow all the personal stuff that goes on behind the scenes because I honestly just don’t care. It’s their personal life and they have a right to privacy just like anyone else. I have seen maybe less than five interviews of Mew and Gulf and each interview was about the show and how they had to prepare for their roles as actors. In those interviews they seem like really nice peope that love their job so that’s why I figured MewGulf was better than TharnType.

      I did however hear about the kpop situation you are talking about. I can’t speak for the ridiculous actions of the korean fans protesting, but I’ve seen that a lot of the frustration from international fans (some, not all) comes from the idea that these male stars only seem to marry their girlfriends when they are pregnant. Idk if that’s true for any of these stars that it’s happened to or if it just seems that way because of how the information was released, but marrying because of a pregnancy isn’t something I agree with either. Whether you are a celebrity or a regular person, marriage should be because of love and because you are ready for it. Not because a baby is coming.

      But just like I siad above, I really don’t care what goes on in the personal lives of these celebrities because it’s not meant to be my business. If these stars and idols want to get married and start a family, they have that right just like anyone else. So I understand why all that can frustrate you.

    Hi, my other comment didn’t go through, so I am typing a longer one: I have been reading your TTTS reviews recently and enjoyed them because you are one of the VERY few people I’ve come across online who say (correctly) that both Type and Tharn are toxic and flawed charactars. Thank you for your balanced view. 

    Usually, people love to demonise Tharn and just let go of Type scot-free when in fact, in a court of law, Type would possibly get the more severe penalty. Also there is a reason why Tharn is such a perv in this and other previous episodes. I say this not to excuse his actions, but to highlight what may be have changed him in his young age to learn such bad lessons… and how damaged both these leads charactars are and how risky it was for the production team to make a show out of these charactars and air it in prime time. 

    Anyway, I just want to share that the controversial shower scene is so much complex than what is often perceived by the average viewer. And it is not the viewer’s fault at all – Type is an extremely complex character, a very strong person who at the same time is still in the grip of PTSD due to his abuse at 11; only someone who has some insight on how Child s*xual abuse (CSA) survivors approach intimacy and attraction as an adult, can possibly get a full picture view on what’s exactly happening here. I am a CSA survivor too, and I have just published an in-depth analysis of this scene on my blog.
