Papang, student president and outstanding all-around student and perfect in every way, kills herself in the middle of her live stream. She is copying Gina, her favourite actress, the second female idol to be cyberbullied to the extent of committing suicide in the middle of her live stream. Her brother Khan wants to investigate the reason behind her decision. He enlists the help of Phat, the young assistant-teacher to Ms Wimol, Papang’s homeroom teacher. Hoping to learn the truth, Khan and Phat speak to the following students: Nan, the social media addict who feels she is inferior to Papang in every way; Toon, the straight-A student who wants to be the student president to complement her grades; and Pok, the young man who had a crush on Papang, whom she brutally rejected. Next, they spoke to her mother, Pimpa, that Papang had long-standing issues regarding her relationship with Wittaya, a man already with a family. Pimpa seemed to be hiding something. The more they search, the more Khan and Phat become suspicious about the clues behind Papang’s seemingly perfect world. She was suffering from defamation and bullying.

Be careful when you comment on the internetIn only five episodes, this series managed to touch upon cyber bullying, which is a very sensitive topic, in a very delicate and realistic way. The series focuses on Papang, a top student, who is famous in her school, especially through her social media account. One day Papang takes her own life and the series portrays the happenings that led her to that decision.
The Comments deal with the impact that social media have on our lives and how our false social media persona can devour our true selves. The series is a social commentary, about the things that people post online with the sole purpose of judging another human being, without thinking or caring about the consequences. It also deals with the hate comments that celebrities receive and how much they can affect them. The acting is really good throughout the series and I would recommend it to anyone interested in this subject. However, it is not that easy to watch, especially the last episode, so take this into consideration. I liked the fact that I was able to read the comments that the viewers made, while watching the series on YouTube. In that way it is even more impactful, because even though the characters are fictional, the situation was very realistic and the comments were concerning to say the least.
What I loved most about the series, is how the character of Papang is depicted. She is not just the victim of cyber bullying and she is not there to play that role. Papang made some selfish decisions, humiliated her friends and she definitely wasn't the most likable character ever. She was inconsiderate about her friends and maybe if she acted in another way, everything would have turned out differently. However, Papang was also a human being with her own feelings and she didn't deserve the hateful comments she got, no matter how she acted. She didn't deserve to lose her life like that and she definitely didn't deserve to feel that hopeless. This series is about the complexity of human emotions that can lead people to extreme actions. The moral is that social media can be used in a harmful, but also in a helpful way. There is always a choice and in the end it is our own decision if we will use them to hurt or help others.
It was so interesting, the way the layers were slowly peeled off, revealing to Khan - the outsider in this story - what happened to his sister, who her friends truly were, what they had done, what she had done, how much she hadn't been telling him because she didn't want him to worry, her sweet big brother. So much ugliness and toxicity...
