Teenage life is a very emotional time in life whether you are part of the popular crowd or just a wallflower because teens all over the world share at least one universal thing in common : raging hormones. “Hormones” is set in present day Bangkok Thailand. It is here that teenagers are tempted by the modernity of city life while at the same time tempered by tradition taught at home. It is this emotional and psychological tug of war involving nature versus nurture that makes every episode so relatable and captivating to watch. The series is full of provocative elements that challenge our preconceived notions of what the average Asian teenager is not only exposed to but also must endure in today’s world.
There are “OMG” scenes you will find hard to accept to be true and even refuse to believe to be real but the twisted reality is that the high school backdrop in this show is the only fictitious part of this “life is stranger than fiction” TV docudrama.
