This is the second time I’ve written a review of this episode. The first version lambasted the overall execution of this episode based on a single, significant flaw in logic and acknowledgment of the passage of time. I could not get past those significant flaws without them influencing what I was saying. I also found it difficult to critique the chapter without looking at it on the whole with the information we as an audience garnered from the viewing.Continue reading “Until We Meet Again – Episode 16 [Review]”
Episode 5 of WhyRU the Series represents a subtle departure from previous episodes as far as relationship development. Both our main couples – Zon-Saifah, Tutor-Fighter seem to have reached a turning point – perhaps its best to call it a point of no return.

Official trailer of new Filipino film with a gay flavour starring Elijah Canlas and Enzo Pineda, directed by Jason Paul Laxamana.
The premise behind 2Gether the Series is quite flimsy- imagine a handsome young Thai named Tine (Win Metawin). He can’t seem to find the right girl and in his pursuit of love, he was taken seriously by a gay guy.
This is probably one of the best news to ever come out from Japan and from a BL perspective. Critically-acclaimed filmmaker Isao Yukisada is set to feature his 27th film entitled The Cornered Mouse Dream of Cheese. Aside from having an awesome director, it stars Ryo Narita – one of Japan’s most exciting young actors who was a former fashion model. He then auditioned and grabbed drama series and films since 2015.
First Update: 20 February 2020
Gun Atthaphan, 26, was in the news to have gone to a police precinct to report an online threat. This is an example of a direct assault to one of the Thai BL community’s most recognized and award-winning actors.
Let’s trace back a bit of history… Continue reading “BL Actors Under Threat: Documenting the Hate [Report]”
Episode 4 of WhyRU The Series represents one-third of the whole, which means we have 8 more episodes to go. Episode 1 is not to my liking, yet I immediately sense a transition and the original intent of the filmmakers to offer something unique and unpredictable yet in a way – relatable. I’m in the opinion that the remaining episodes will feature delectable, juicy, intense and revealing details that will define this BL drama.
Another emotional storm overtakes us in this episode. Plot twists, surprise revelations, and even more reveals about the characters we’ve come to care about so much. Acting in this BL series is one of its strongest suits. With the next crop of “BL” series in 2020, I’m hoping we’ll see the same high-quality production standards for which this series has established the benchmark.Continue reading “Until We Meet Again – Episode 15 [Review]”

Star Hunter Studio, the company behind SBFive and organizers of Thai BL actors’ fan events is releasing a series of music videos entitled “The Moment: I Need You”.
11 years have gone by since Love of Siam (2007), a gay love story made waves in Thai cinemas for the first time ever. While moviehouses still offer exciting new titles, topics such as BL (Yaoi) found different avenues to showcase stories not particularly popular with the mainstream audience.Continue reading “Reviewing Notable Thai BL Series [2016-2019] February 2020 Edition”
The curtain lifts, and we are immediately being engulfed in our memories from throughout the TharnType series. Watching this pulls us into the inevitable arrival of “goodbye,” because we are finally at journey’s end.Continue reading “TharnType: Special Episode “Our Last Love” [Review]”
Last week I was rabbiting on about Korn’s “famous last words” and all the broken promises as if the chronology of Korn and In’s story was waning from this series. I was wrong. Not only do we get to see more of the good and bad times with Korn and In, but we’re also starting to get a clearer timeline of events that link to what our present Dean and Pharm experience through sometimes not-so-pleasant dreams.Continue reading “Until We Meet Again – Episode 14 [Review]”
A kiss is not just a kiss. In Episode 3 of Why RU the Series, it is symbolic of the many aspects of a burgeoning intimacy between our two main couples.
Nothing has changed since this quote was made many years ago:

This video is extremely exciting for me to watch since it stars Hiroya Shimizu, one of my ultimate personal bias among Japanese actors. Hiroya figured prominently in a couple of Japanese coming-of-age films including Solomon’s Perjury, The World of Kanako and Chihayafuru.
