Admit it! The series ha brought simple joy to us and we Filipino fans suddenly get hooked about this series; Here are some of the many reasons why the top-rated series won our hearts:

WE ARE DREAMING OF OUR VERY OWN ‘TINE & SARAWAT‘ LOVE STORY

As one of the friendliest countries with humorous people in the world, we, in nature are all fans of love stories, we are fond of hearing, watching, dreaming to have our own love story one day.

2gether: The Series aims to give us the thought and feeling that one day we will all meet someone that would actually change our lives; someone that would drive us crazy as what the story of Tine and Sarawat, we badly wish to have had one during our early years, admit it!

THE KILIG AND FEELS ARE WHAT WE REALLY NEED RIGHT NOW

#SarawaTine fever is really taking us to a whole new level of kilig and happiness. Whenever we see some minute developments in the story about the lives of the characters, we pinoy fans got easily to relate our own lives and empathize with the story.

FILIPINO LGBTQIA+ FANS ARE LONGING FOR ACCEPTANCE

As a sensitive and traditional country, same-sex set-up in the Philippines is really hard to justify from the criticisms of shallow-minded humans. Our country is firm on its stand against the legalization of same-sex relationships, the series somehow gave us something to ponder on, a sudden realization and maybe a hope for the LGBTQIA+ community to stop vying for the long battle of acceptance. We all dreamt of equality and acceptance, we are wishing that one day all societal norms, gender, and choices will disappear and would not matter at all.

The fire has been ignited for this long and huge fight for the LGBTQIA+ community ‘cause right now, we are all putting the situation light-we are embracing the essence of tolerance than acceptance—a sad reality.

A NEW FLAVOR TO ALL PINOY SERIES/DRAMA ENTHUSIASTS

In the Philippines, few dramas/movies have bravely engaged and created such types of genre which of course manifestly noticed by the viewers and received many prejudices from critics. The sensitive talks immensely arose but as a country with an understanding and compassionate citizens, some started to open their hearts.

BL series is not the usual type of shows we have in the Philippines, that’s why Filipino fans have captured by ‘2gether: The Series,’  and our open hearts have smoothly embraced the story of Tine and Sarawat. 

 

2GETHER THE SERIES IS ON THE LIST OF TRENDING TOPICS

‘2gether: The Series’ airs every Friday at 9:30 pm (Thailand time) & 10:30 pm (Philippine time). Every Friday or even late night of every Thursday, the official hashtag used for every episode has surprisingly placed on the number one spot ever since the series started in February.

We Filipinos are a sucker of new things in nature. We all want to be in everything that is happening around us. We all want to see and experience it firsthand. We don’t usually see series like this one and the fact that it’s currently on the talk of the town today, our curiosity thrust our minds to get to know about it.

Whatever your purpose of being addicted to ‘2gether: The Series,’ no one can invalidate it. We all have our own taste, choices, and perspectives when it comes to things; our keen minds would truly lead us to discover things that make us who we are.

 In these trying times, we all do want to divert our worrisome hearts into light and simple feelings. If you’re happy watching it, then go for it, express your feelings, tell us your thoughts, and feel the magic for a little while.
