One of the (many) things I love about 609 Bedtime Story is the fact that, as fans, we’re getting to see a new type of character for Ohm and Fluke. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Until We Meet Again (I think I’ve seen it 4 times now), and while I am secretly waiting for Dew to cry out “P’ Mummmmm!” I love these characters and how different they are from what we’ve seen before.
Mum is ( at least at the start of the series) a player. He’s a total bro. He’s got his girls, he’s got his music and he loves the life he’s living. He’s a player and romance is the furthest thing from his mind – especially romance with a dude. Until he meets Dew that is
Dew, though sensitive, isn’t a weakling. He’s not some damsel in distress that buckles into tears at the drop of a hat. He’s got his dreams and desires, but also responsibilities – and he juggles them all with a sort of strength we haven’t gotten to see much from Fluke lately. Side note: I love what director Tanwarin Sukkhapisit can pull out of Fluke. The two have worked together previously on the film Red Wine in the Dark Night (which Sukkhapisit also wrote) and it’s a wonderful piece.
This episode was one of exposition. Mum discovers a lot about their two worlds and how they are connected – including the time frame they seem to be able to visit one another. There’s also an adorable scene where Mum shows off his sick power ranger moves!
And another inspired by Disney’s Lady and the Tramp.
My beautiful Potae wasn’t featured heavily in this episode, but it was lovely to see his big puppy-dog eyes looking lovingly at his lover.
Seriously, this scene has got everything. Action, adventure, romance…. It’s truly, truly, truly outrageous!
More 609 Bedtime Story soon so…
