Senior Love Me? 2 is the second season of the Thai BL series. It continues the love story of the two coffee shop employees. The main characters have confessed their feelings to each other. Suddenly, a new rival appears and tries coming between their relationship. This suitor is assertive, competitive, and manipulative. He successfully causes enough tension to make the protagonists doubt their budding romance.
The Senior Love Me sequel is significantly worse than the first season. While the original depicts a sweet and harmless romance, this series revolves around an aggravating love triangle. The obnoxious rival dominates the narrative with his deceptive schemes. There is barely any focus on the relationship between the protagonists. Instead, the constant conflicts undermine their bond, making me think the characters are incompatible.

Senior Love Me 2 Review
Drama Review Score: 4.5
Senior Love Me 2 should have never been made. The original drama flew under the radar as generic romantic fluff. While it was unremarkable, the sweet little series seemed innocent and harmless. I gave it a middling review score and moved on. However, the terrible sequel tarnishes my memory of a simple, unassuming love story. Senior Love 2 exposes its narrative flaws and loses all the charm. I must lower my assessment of the first season since the awfulness drags into the past.
The worst quality about Senior Love Me 2 must be the new character, Pee. This obnoxious love rival dominates the narrative with his shameless boyfriend-stealing tactics. The entire story inexplicably revolves around Pee, overshadowing the relationship between the protagonists. I have no idea why this random nuisance receives so much screen time. He steals the spotlight and makes the leads seem like they are the supporting cast. Senior Love Me 2 gets its priorities completely wrong. It focuses on the one-dimensional villain and neglects the real stars.
Beyond being an attention hog, Pee ruins the series with his despicable behaviour. This scheming saboteur comes between an established couple and willfully steals someone else's boyfriend. He takes immense pride in his lack of integrity, taunting Mike and creating a toxic atmosphere in the storyline. Furthermore, the leads don't stand up to him. Mike mopes around like a pitiful doormat, too timid to confront his rival or boyfriend. Bam acts oblivious, even though it's apparent Pee has been hitting on him. All the characters frustrate me with their unlikeable conduct.
Senior Love Me 2 has little romantic content. Despite talking a big game, Pee's seduction is tame. Expect the most milquetoast BL interactions without any traces of flirtation. Bam and Mike share even less chemistry since the couple spends almost the whole series pitted against each other. Bam is too busy giggling with Pee rather than paying attention to his love interest. The leads already had a shallow relationship in the original series. Going into the sequel, I expected their bond to mature and deepen. Instead, Senior Love Me 2 highlights their incompatibility.
Like everything else, the acting is uninspired. Admittedly, the cast members must work with dismal material that dims their sparks. Nonetheless, neither of the leads (Tang-oh & Boom) brings charm or enthusiasm into their roles. They lack the charisma to give the bland characters a boost of personality. During the first season, the performers can mask their limitations behind the veil of romantic fluff. Unfortunately, the sequel has less cutesy, lighthearted exchanges. The more dramatic script challenges the actors, who can't make the scenes compelling.
Senior Love Me 2 has a happy ending, but it comes after nearly thirty minutes of aggravating love triangle drama. On the one hand, I'm glad the couple's conflict is finally over. On the other hand, the resolution is so banal and inelegant that I question what's the point. Why dedicate the entire season to this miserable storyline only to have no significant message? Senior Love Me 2 has been a colossal failure, from the vapid plot to the nonexistent romance. The sequel feels soulless and thoughtless, like something hastily put together without care.
Senior Love Me spends too much time on the aggravating love triangle drama. The manipulative rival dominates the plot, overshadowing the leads. His scheming makes the story seem toxic.
The leads barely spend time bonding in Season 2. Bam prefers giggling with Pee instead of paying attention to Mike. The sequel undermines the couple and doesn't develop their relationship.
The leads (Tang-oh & Boom) don't bring charm or enthusiasm into their roles. They lack the charisma to give their characters any personality. Their acting performances are uninspired.
Senior Love Me 2 has a happy ending as the couple reconciles at a birthday party. The resolution comes too late. The couple clashes for nearly the entire series until the last scene.
Most of the series is filmed around the coffee shop. The plain surroundings get old after two seasons, adding to the staleness of the series. The beach scenes are a refreshing change of scenery.
Senior Love Me 2 is a failed sequel that diminishes the original series. It wastes time on a random rival & annoying love triangle drama, overshadowing the romance between the protagonists.
