A heavy, exciting plot

Behind The Mask tackles a pretty heavy storyline, but it also manages to address several smaller arcs around the supporting characters. If you’re looking for a series that ties up all loose ends nicely, you won’t be disappointed! 

Great acting by the main cast

It’s clear to see when a show has an amazing group of actors, and it shows. We would like to give a special mention to Aniporn, who had extra responsibility to juggle two characters for the duration of the series. To embody two characters is no easy feat!
