I have a poll going on my amino for who people think is gonna win the bet that Pat and Pran set for themselves. I love how it’s currently very in the middle. Like it’ll be 50/50 then Pat will push ahead, then Pran will push ahead. It’s so back and forth. We’re a bunch of clowns clowning on the clowns who are clowning on themselves. You feel me?
#I’m not making any sense #we’re all clowns #Pat and Pran are in denial #but we’re rooting them on anyway #we’re enabling their stupid bet 😂 #but it’s for a good cause #Pran will annihilate Pat #I said what I said #no regrets #we’re a bunch of bad buddy trashes #bad buddy #pat x pran #patpran#ohmnanon #bad buddy series #bad buddy the series #bad buddy ep 6
If you don’t say it, how will I figure it out? // Speaking with you nicely…I just don’t know how.
BAD BUDDY (2021)
#badbuddyedit#bad buddy#bbedit #bad buddy series #patpran #pat x pran #ohm pawat#nanon korapat#*myedit#*gif #ft. pat king of communication and pran king of microexpressions #but honestly what this gifset doesnt show is how much pat struggled at the beginning of the episode #he didnt know what he was doimg but he was honest about it #and gradually he learned how to meet pran at the level he was comfortable with #while also not backing away from his own needs #it was just!! really good all around #pran: looks away looks away looks away...looks
something tells me there’s so much to be said about the fact that the bet scene takes place by a boat, and that so many transitional scenes are cuts to boats at sea. but if i start thinking about it, i’m gonna come up with so many different theories, and i don’t think I’m ready to open pandora’s box
#bad buddy#patpran #just like… there’s something there #about all the cuts being boats floating at sea #but then finally when they make the bet the boat is on the shore #they’re not lost at sea anymore they’ve arrived on dry land #and they can finally be at ease
i just know pran's heart was beating like crazy when they were on the beach in ep 6 [3/4]. every time their eyes met, pran's heart missed a beat. when pat gently touches pran's hand and they look at each other with those gazes full of unspoken feelings? i know pran's heart did a somersault and nearly broke his ribs. when pat pretends to drown, i know pran wants to run into the water and play with him as if there is nothing or no one in the world that could stop him from loving freely. i know he wanted to kiss pat and stay, not run away with the weight of his conscience and the fear of the consequences of allowing his heart to take over his brain. i know that when he allows himself he’ll love pat to the point of making up for all the years he couldn't.
i love that the whole bet between pat and pran is not about whether they really like each other but whos going to give in and confess first. they clearly know they like each other, maybe there's a smack of insecurity or questioning but they know they have feelings for each other. it's obvious just from that scene in ep 6 [3/4] when pat asks what they would be if their families weren't enemies and they look at each other and we know they know they would be a couple.
the bet is that they enter this new phase of their relationship with something they are used to, so it won't be something completely unknown. it's a new territory, but if there's one thing they've always had to do their whole life, it's compete against each other. and they're good at it despite all the circumstances.
moreover, i believe that pran being scared/insecure is one of the factors the bet exists. all through episode 6 we confirm that pat is willing to take the risks and deal with the consequences (actually i don't believe he thinks about them very much) but not pran. he had all the time in the world to think about all the pros and cons. spending his childhood in love with pat and knowing that this feeling will never be reciprocated is something he can do, as the consequences will never be exposed. but the moment pat returns those feelings, the consequences become tangible.
i see the bet but as a way for them to move around this territory without being afraid to express their feelings and that they can protect themselves behind it. no wonder that in the preview for episode 7, pran says that the two need a little push to confess because if you depend on them, they will continue teasing each other.
I’m so glad they chose Nanon and Ohm to play these characters. So much of their (Pat and Pran’s) relationship is based on subtle micro expressions and little acts of service. Nanon has proven how good he is at micro expressions and Ohm is just such a talented, versatile actor with so much experience (so is Nanon). It also helps that Ohm and Nanon were already good friends before they started filming Bad Buddy. I just think they struck gold with this pairing. Their chemistry is off the charts. The benefits of pairing amazing actors and good friends together. You get quality content.
involved you in the slightest? How did this call for
You will never convince me that Pran's friends are acting out of protectiveness. Pran is not a pushover- the fact that Pat's doing all of this and hasn't gotten his shit rocked is enough of a sign that he's not in danger. The fact that Pran was allowed to put his hands on Pat three times before Pat reciprocated in episode 5 was a huge statement, one that Wai saw firsthand. Whatever this is-jealousy, ego or just sheer dislike- it's not because he honestly think Pran's in danger. I think part of it is just that Wai (justifiably) doesn't like Pat and he's taken Pat's indifference to him as disrespect. You know, men and their egos.
I'm down to discuss though. I recognize that there's a lot that Pran just doesn't tell people and we saw him shut down the discussion with Wai about his family in this episode. Maybe when Pat said Pran "doesn't have many friends," he meant that he doesn't let anyone in. Maybe Wai's floundering in his own way, trying to protect someone he knows would never admit he needs it, and trying to figure out how this egotistical asshole seems to know more about his friend than he does. Maybe romantic jealousy isn't the only type going around. (I really hope its just platonic)
The first chapter of my Pat/Pran Hanahaki AU is online! 🌼
This is my first attempt at writing this kind of AU and I'm both excited and slightly TERRIFIED – but you know, in all the good ways. Maybe. Or I'm just an anxious mess and I should stop rambling now.

I’m making this PatPran edit but I’ve never worked with dramas. I usually just do idols so I’m now realizing how different it is??? I had this good clip but then realized my sister texted me while I was recording so now I need to go find it again :D I think I can do it, make the edit, if I don’t give up..
Yes, I’m obsessed with this scene and not just because Pran treats Pat’s fingers like this is a KFC commercial. By comparison, Pat’s attempt at flirting seems childish and silly, but I think that’s exactly what he’s going for. Pat doesn’t actually know where Pran’s boundaries are with this, this is a new battlefield for them, and the last thing he wants to do is push Pran away accidentally.
So, he starts with something simple and familiar. Change “if you want it, be my boyfriend” to “if you want it, be my friend” and this is precisely something Pat could have done pre-kiss. He’s testing the waters and, well, he’s had plenty of evidence that Pran likes it when he acts cute, so why not start there?
So then, when Pran leans in and really says, “yeah, no, we’re not 15 anymore,” yes, Pat short-circuits for a hot second, but then as Pran walks away you can literally see, “oh, this is gonna be fun,” written all over his face. He knows Pran is really the more competitive of the two of them, and he is not above using that to his benefit to make Pran up the ante. The way he sees this, he can’t lose. He’s able to be as clingy as he wants (very), has found a way for Pran to be more open with him (important), and gets plenty of his new favourite side of Pran (flirty). What more could a boy hopelessly in love want?
