There’s Finally Going to be a Movie About Friend Zone


Editor’s note: Please skip the next paragraph if you’re having your meal now. You have been warned. Proceed with utmost caution.

Not trying to toot my own horn but back in the days when I was once young and beautiful *subtle and classy hair flip*, I’ve had my fair share of confessions from the opposite gender too.

(Editor: Okay lah, she’s still pretty now)

Having studied in an all-girls school for 10 years, entering poly was really an eye-opener for me.

There. Were. Boys. Everywhere.

It took me quite awhile to get used to if I may add. You would understand if you’ve been in my shoes.

Unless you were one of the cool kids back in secondary school, this would be one of the first time you ever get to talk to someone from the opposite gender. No, sitting together on the bus ride back home doesn’t count. Not even when the dude’s passed out from exhaustion on your bony shoulders.

As aforementioned, all these was a lot to get used to for a very awkward me. Which is why I’ve never been friend-zoned but I am guilty of subtly doing that to a few others I met throughout my time in poly.

C’mon I’ve never experienced this before; flattered, yes but how was I supposed to react? I don’t know! Just play it dumb?

Well, anyways.

At least now you know the Friend Zone from another point of view.

Friend Zone

What in the world is this zone which everyone dreads?

Well, according to Psychology Today, Friend Zone simply refers to “a situation where there is a mismatch in romantic feelings between two individuals.” They further explain that this tend to “occur in relationships where both individuals’ emotional needs are not getting met.” In other words, one party on the losing end; giving more than what he/she is getting.

To get a better understanding of this terminology coined by millenials, and why everyone fears it, perhaps you may find it helpful to turn to one of our videos we’ve done:

But that is nothing compared to a movie that’s coming out soon.

If you’d like to know what you’re getting yourself into beforehand, I present you with the option of watching the trailer below:


Otherwise, Friend Zone is a romcom movie from Thailand (the land notorious for their comical movies, if I may say so myself) which tells the story of a young lad who is smitten by his best friend of 10 years and has been constantly on the move in getting her to be his girlfriend.

Unfortunately, the feelings aren’t mutual and he is the only one willing to travel miles for her.

Sounds like someone you know?

The movie is almost 2 hours long and is fronted by Naphat Siangsomboon and Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul.

Directed by Chayanop Boonprakob, Friend Zone will be released in cinemas locally on 25 April 2019.


Like all Thai movies, English subtitles will be available so don’t worry about your potential date missing the hint.

P.S. If you’re a fan of Thai movies, you’d have heard of SuckSeed, directed by Chayanop Boonprakob too!

Catch the movie with your crush to low-key get your point across to him/ her and maybe, just maybe, both of you will exit the cinema being more than just friends.

Who says Avengers: Endgame is the only movie to look forward to in April 2019?
