However, to get one, all engineering freshmen must first undergo the SOTUS (acronym for Seniority, Order, Tradition, Unity, and Spirit) system. Arthit (Perawat Sangpotirat), one of the third year seniors, often abuse his power over the freshmen by making them do things against the rules. Freshmen students are practically powerless to complain or resist any orders given by their seniors. Arthit was seemingly unstoppable, until Kongpob (Prachaya Ruangroj) stood up against the abuses by the former. Continual encounters between the two developed from animosity to something much more affectionate.

SOTUS is a show for in-between when you're out of options and while it taunts with a well written plot summary it suffers from a terrible execution.
I personally don't mind but I am sure a lot of people will dislike the slow pace in episodes 1-5 and a general lack of direction.

BL(what I came for): You don't really get to feel the BL here, it's more like a story about immature seniors and one of their leaders bullying a mature-ish young freshman and his new friends and classmates — what should merely be one of many elements in the story line quickly becomes its main selling point.

I still harbor hope and would like to see things get moving in the second half of the season.
