Our Days is a Thai BL series about two university students who become enemies after a drunken night together. The main character cannot forgive his acquaintance over a stolen kiss. The other protagonist is apologetic and seeks forgiveness, but hostility continues brewing between them. Their relationship turns complicated once they must live in the same house as roommates.
If you have the patience, Our Days is a slow-burning drama that takes time to develop. Each episode quietly explores intimate emotions, thoughtful introspection, and character growth. However, fans may feel bored by the mundane plot or the tepid romance. Also, the narrative makes several storytelling missteps in the second half, ruining the momentum for the rest of the series.
Our Days BL Summary
Our Days is a mature & interesting BL drama.
Mon travels away from home for his first year of university. He plans to live with his friend Pond, whose uncle offers free boarding. However, Mon follows the wrong address and accidentally ends up at a stranger's home. He meets Soh, the resident of the luxury loft. Despite the mix-up, Soh is hospitable and allows Mon to stay for the day.
Mon and Soh spend the night drinking. Soh becomes drunk and accidentally kisses his acquaintance. While Mon is mortified by the kiss, Soh does not recall what happened. Later, they meet at the university campus. Soh is surprised by Mon's sudden hostility around him. Mon accuses Soh of inappropriate conduct. His partner is apologetic and claims the kiss isn't intentional. Nonetheless, Mon never wants to see Soh again.
Mon and Pond decide to move away from the uncle's place. Instead, they chip in the rent with their friends, Fame, Jean, and Tiger. In an ironic twist of fate, Mon discovers Soh is a mutual acquaintance and one of his new roommates. Soh is remorseful about what happened between them and asks to make amends. He desperately wants them to have a fresh start, as if the drunken kiss never happened. Yet, Soh continues to act standoffish, leading to awkward tensions around the house.
Mon used to love playing basketball, the sport his father introduced. However, Mon fell out of love with the sport recently. He refuses to apply for the school's team. A part of his disinterest stems from his high school rival, Tack, who received the basketball scholarship over him. Tack and Mon attend the same school, becoming adversaries. Mon's rival constantly taunts him about not being a good enough player for the campus team.
While living together, Soh becomes curious about Mon's past. Soh meets Mon's younger brother Micky, an energetic high school student. Micky reveals his older sibling's struggles. Beneath Mon's cold exterior, he is wounded and vulnerable. In addition, Soh meets Saint, a popular basketball player from another school. Saint shares a mysterious past with Mon and seems strangely fond of him. Soh wonders about their ambiguous relationship.

Our Days Review
Drama Review Score: 7.1
Our Days is an unconventional BL drama because it goes against the standard formula in the genre. Many other series make a loud splash with surreal plots, snappy dialogue, or sensationalist twists. In contrast, this story avoids flashiness and tries to be as ordinary as possible. The leads are regular guys instead of your typical twinks or pretty boys. Our Days cherishes authenticity, portraying a down-to-earth narrative that can happen in the real world. It strives for rawness and realism, although sometimes unsuccessfully.
This series has a different rhythm than most BL dramas. The story is slow, quiet, and mundane, unlike the sleek, sexy, and fast-paced romances prevalent in the genre. It takes ample time to advance the plot, develop the characters, and explore their motivations. The protagonists go on long journeys of growth and self-discovery. If you have patience, the narrative builds to precious moments of introspection. However, I suspect many fans won't respond well to the dull pacing. Our Days is too much of a slow burn and doesn't offer enough excitement to hold your attention.
As much as I appreciate the thoughtful story, Our Days starts to drag in the second half. It makes a few mistakes in the last few episodes. Firstly, the romance stalls for too long. There was a perfect time for the characters to become an official couple, but the series missed that window of opportunity. The relationship stagnates when the narrative needs a fresh boost of new storylines. Secondly, Soh's behaviour becomes aggravating. I liked him before due to his character's kind personality. However, he turns insensitive and needlessly cruel, losing all my goodwill toward him.
Episode 4 introduces Saint, my favourite character in Our Days. For starters, the actor (Offroad) looks sharp on camera with an abundance of shirtless scenes. In addition, Saint brings seduction, emotional drama, and an air of intrigue. He's like a breath of fresh air in a series low on energy. Saint is supposed to be in a love triangle with the leads. However, the storyline doesn't work. I find Saint more appealing than Soh in every aspect, including personality, looks, backstory, and compatibility. It perplexes me why Mon pines for Soh when he has a much better alternative.
Our Days features an unknown cast, many newbies without prior screen experience. The leads aren't dreadful, but they lack the charisma to carry the series alone. Mon's actor (Gap) doesn't have the range to portray a tsundere character. He may not be the best fit for this role. His costar (Mhing) is okay, yet he doesn't share sparks or chemistry with his partner. Both get outshined by several supporting cast members, particularly Offroad. I also enjoy the perky actor who portrays Pond (Poon). Plus, Coach Ryu is delightful and livens up the basketball scenes.
Overall, I like how Our Days offers a calm, pensive story that feels distinctive in the landscape of BL. I enjoy the subdued drama, delicate emotions & intimate character journeys. The unhurried pace doesn't bother me, but I know others will complain it's dull. Yet, I don't feel passionate after finishing this series. Fatigue sets in during the last few aimless episodes, enough to dampen my interest. Our Days also suffers because it's missing the traditional BL magic. It lacks the bold plots, the juicy romance, and the exciting thrills that make this genre entertaining to watch.
Our Days has a quiet, thoughtful story. It explores delicate emotions, intimate introspection, and lengthy character arcs. However, some viewers may not enjoy the slow pacing or the ordinary plots.
The romance takes too long to develop and stagnates instead of moving forward. Also, Soh behaves cruelly in the second half. I prefer Saint, who is a more appealing love interest for Mon.
Unfortunately, the inexperienced leads don't exude enough charisma to carry the series alone. They also don't share chemistry with each other. I like the actors who portray Saint (Offroad) & Pond (Poon).
Our Days has a sad ending that depicts realistic consequences for Mon and Soh's romance. My favourite moment in the finale is the emotional chat between Saint and his dad.
This series thrives on a calm, cozy atmosphere. Some visuals look beautiful, highlighted by thoughtful scene composition. You can tell much love and care are put into polishing the production.
Our Days is a slow BL drama that favours quiet, mundane moments. The leads go on long journeys of self-discovery, which may bore the viewers. The series lacks a juicy romance, which drags near the end.
Our Days Episodes
Our Days has a total of 12 episodes. Each episode is around 50 to 60 minutes long. The last episode is around 55 minutes long. It is a long BL drama, and you can finish the entire series in around 11 hours. Our Days started on February 18, 2022 and ended on May 13, 2022.
I like the intriguing conflict between the main characters, exploring the boundaries of a drunken kiss. The twist at the end of the episode is clever, adding depth to the relationship dynamic.
Our Days handles the conflict between Mon and Soh well, showing both perspectives. I like how sincere Soh is about apologizing and making amends. Yet, I respect Mon's decision not to forgive him.
Dedicating an entire episode to a basketball game isn't my favourite. However, I like the bonding scenes between Mon and Soh. It's nice to see them getting along after their rough start.
I like seeing how the leads bond over lollipops at the start of the episode. So far, I'm intrigued by Saint's character. This seductive minx brings a sense of danger and a mysterious aura around him.
I like learning Mon's backstory in this episode. That intimate chat between Mon & Sho by the sea is well-done. However, I'm not a massive fan of the pointless antics with the other roommates.
Saint's actor (Offroad) looks so sharp on camera. He makes up for the lost charisma the leads don't have. Instead of the love triangle, I wish Our Days added a secondary romance with his character.
OMG. Wow, that ending shocked me. Why does Soh reject Mon!? That doesn't make sense! I thought we reached a breakthrough with Mon reciprocating his romantic feelings. Why, Soh, why!?
Screw Soh. This guy had his chance with Mon, and he blew it. Honestly, I prefer Mon and Saint together more. Saint is so compatible with Mon. He's a better love interest than mopey Soh.
Do we need to dedicate an episode to Mon's brother? I'm not a fan of the bond between Micky and Q. This episode feels like a diversion when the plot should focus on Mon and Soh's drama.
OMG, Soh's behaviour is awful. His actions at the bar are needlessly cruel. He hurts Mon way more than just telling him the real reason. Screw Soh so much. I'm completely rooting for Mon and Saint!
While I'm happy Mon and Soh are finally together, I don't care about this couple anymore. I'm suffering from fatigue. The story has dragged on for too long, and I lost enthusiasm for the characters.
I love Saint's chat with his dad. "Remember you're the reason for this team's defeat" is a powerful line. Honestly, I don't care Mon & Soh aren't together. Pond has the best ending in the epilogue lmao~
