TV review: Don't Say No (2021) (BL Contemporary)

Don't Say No (เมื่อหัวใจใกล้กัน)
12 episodes
BL Contemporary

"If I am that right person for you then from now on, you can't say no to me." From friends to lovers. How will this relationship go, when one is a good guy but the other one is a bad boy. Is it possible to turn a bad boy into a lover? (Synopsis)

Don't Say No was a bit of a mixed series for me. On the plus side, I liked the performances by the main actors and they had good chemistry together, especially in the bedroom scenes, so I was engaged in following their relationship. However, I found the plot a bit too melodramatic at times and I thought the series overall was too long. Some scenes were drawn out so much I would skip ahead a minute or two, because there were only so many times I could watch a character sobbing through a long scene with no other action before it became boring. Some tighter editing would have helped hold my attention better. I also wished we could have seen more of the background action that led to them becoming a couple at the start of episode one, which was often referenced but never shown. Even so, I think the pluses outweigh the negatives overall, so I am giving this series 4 stars.
