Colorful Melody – Series Review & Episode Guide

Colorful Melody is a Thai BL series about an artist and a musician.

Colorful Melody is a Thai BL series about a musician and a painter. The main character arrives in the countryside and teaches music to schoolchildren. He befriends the art teacher, forming an instant connection with him. They get to know each other better while visiting their beautiful surroundings. As their relationship deepens, the protagonist wonders if the budding attraction between them is mutual.

The beautifully filmed Colourful Melody features breathtaking outdoor scenery. From majestic waterfalls to vintage train carriages, the gorgeous settings create a mesmerizing romantic atmosphere. The couple forms a cozy connection, even though their relationship scenes don't seem deep. However, the final episode suddenly introduces tragic melodrama that destroys the relaxing vibe. I hate the finale so much that it ruins the series.

Colorful Melody Review


Drama Review Score: 5.6

Mem and Day listen to music together.

The most spectacular part about Colorful Melody is its picturesque outdoor filming locations. The story takes place in a rural setting and showcases the magnificent views outside the cityscape. It captures so much of the serene beauty in the surroundings. Every shot of the sea, the shrine, and the sunset evokes astonishment. The second and third episodes are like tourism ads, making me want to board a plane and go sightseeing. Colorful Melody dazzles with its cinematography and transports viewers to a stunning world.

Many fans have watched A Tale of Thousand Stars, one of the classics in the Thai BL genre. The famous fan favourite has inspired several copycats, including Colorful Melody. Both stories feature a volunteer teacher who leaves the city and resides in the countryside. This series changes a few character details and plot points to avoid direct plagiarism. Nonetheless, it draws obvious comparisons by borrowing such a similar premise. Unsurprisingly, the imitation is never as good as the original. Colorful Melody feels like a shorter, less charming, and unimaginative rip-off.

Colorful Melody has a calm, relaxing vibe. The protagonists get along blissfully without conflict, so there's little drama for most of the series. On the one hand, I appreciate the mellow scenes as the couple enjoys each other's company. On the other hand, the uneventful plot loses my interest during the slower moments. Episode 2 introduces the first source of tension, yet the characters move on by skirting around the issue. This low-stakes series avoids confrontation and minimizes grittier storytelling. It coasts on casual relationship fluff for the first three episodes.

The mesmerizing backdrop helps establish a romantic atmosphere. It's easier to believe the characters have fallen in love when surrounded by natural beauty. However, the couple's relationship scenes are mundane. They chit-chat casually and smile gently before the camera pans out to show the landscape. There are also a few cozy montages to summarize their bonding moments. While these scenes are fine, they don't excite me too much. As the characters exchange pleasantries, I don't sense sparks between them. The scenery is more memorable than their interactions.

I recognize Day's actor (Ter) from another BL drama last year. However, he hasn't left much of an impression on me in either series. In both cases, he portrays a generic protagonist without much personality. The narrow scope of the roles doesn't allow the performer to shine. I like his costar (Team) slightly more. He's a cutie with lots of sincerity in his expression. His character, Mem, is a humble art teacher in the countryside. Yet, he strips off, climbs on top of his partner, and makes out passionately during a sexual encounter. Whoa, his transformation is fierce!

The last episode is my least favourite part of Colorful Melody. With little build-up, the gentle story suddenly plunges into tragedy and melodrama. The over-the-top plot developments, from mysterious illnesses to convoluted childhood backstories, bewilder me. WTF!? Where did all this angst come from!? The contrived sad ending is so tonally jarring from the rest of the narrative, undermining everything that made it enjoyable. I hated the finale so much that it ruined the series for me. Colorful Melody goes from casually pleasant to catastrophically overwrought.


Uninspired story

Colorful Melody borrows similar ideas from A Tale of Thousand Stars, showing little originality. Most uneventful episodes coast on casual romantic fluff instead of grittier storytelling.

Mellow romance

The bland couple spends leisurely time bonding with each other. Although these exchanges seem cozy and mellow, they don't excite me. I pay more attention to the scenery than the interactions.

Average acting

Mem's actor (Tem) is a cutie who displays lots of sincerity in his expressions. His costar (Ter) makes less of an impression on me. The generic role doesn't allow the performer to shine.

Sad ending

Colorful Melody has a sad ending where the couple suddenly faces a storm of tragic melodrama. The angsty finale is tonally jarring from the rest of the series. I hate this last episode so damn much.

Picturesque artistry

The beautiful series features picturesque outdoor filming locations, almost like a tourism ad. The gorgeous scenery sets a romantic atmosphere and transports viewers to a stunning world.


Colorful Melody is a cozy, casual BL series with picturesque outdoor filming locations. Yet, the uneventful story, bland romance, and overwrought ending have destroyed my enjoyment.

Episode Reviews

Episode 1

The first episode is kinda meh. Most of the scenes seem mundane and unnoteworthy. Any time the protagonist is a "volunteer teacher" in a Thai BL drama, it feels like a rip-off of A Tale of 1000 Stars.

Episode 2

The outdoor scenes are gorgeous, capturing the outdoor beauty. Mem's actor is also a cutie. His looks are growing on me. OMG, he rejected the kiss!? I wanted to see them make out by the waterfall!

Episode 3

Are they not going to address the rejected waterfall kiss? Um, okay. I thought Mem was some humble art teacher in the countryside. But damn, he's making out with Day fiercely. Teachers gone wild!

Episode 4

WTF!? I hate this sad ending so much! From the mysterious illness to the annoying breakup, the story suddenly introduces so much contrived melodrama. The finale ruins the relaxing vibe of the series.

  1. You said it: the finale kills all the good vibes… But it was worth it watching it once for travel location and Mem 🙂
    I appreciate your reviews very much!


    1. Thank you very much for your appreciation!

      Yeah, the finale killed the good vibes for me. I reacted really poorly to the last episode, but I did enjoy the cinematography a lot. It made me want to buy a plane ticket, haha. Mem is also a cutie and added to my enjoyment. 😄
