I have always loved the emerging genre that is Boyslove but it was the heartbreaking finale of TinCan in Love By Chance Season 1 that got me into starting my BL-content YouTube channel and my Wattpad page. Boys Love has become a part of my lifestyle, so much so that I am currently part of the revolution that will eventually put Filipino BL into mainstream attention.

I had been reading M/M romance stories much before I knew there was something called BL genre. It was a chance discovery that brought BL dramas to my life. In the past six months, more than the dramas and the stories, the fandom has taught me how to appreciate these stories, the different medium of expressions, and how to believe that these characters give hope and smile to so people around the world. A reader first and obsessive reviewer of things I love, I write when I am deeply touched by a story.

Since I was 6 years old I’ve been playing music and singing. As I was very fond of teaching, I became a music primary teacher in some public schools, and in fact this is my current job and the one I want to carry on until I get retired. My interests in Asian culture started to increase at Secondary school level. No sooner had I found out about the fascinating world of Boyslove at an early age and listened to SOTUS the series background music / OST than I decided to share/use my music skills on my Youtube channel, making my own Spanish or English covers of this touching BL music, trying to claim that the soundtracks are as well essential for making a series outstanding.

But being a Video Reactor is just an unexpected move for me since Pandemic, because I was inspired by the reactors in YouTube. Actually, Boys Love Series or BL Series is something new to me. I unexpectedly fell in love with it while watching Gameboys and it became my one-of-the-favorite BL Series. Now it has become my hobby to watch all series because I believe that comparing other BL Series is not fair for oneself but it is for us to support all series and our opinion is just our personal opinion because that’s our freedom.

I’m a licensed Environmental Planner, holding a doctorate degree in Public Management. I started watching BL Shows because of endless recommendations of friends and countless social media posts of people fawning over these BL stories. I want to see a male to male relationship on screen that’s not burdened by the traditional and baggage of real-life romance. BL shows for me is a fantasy that energized and motivated me to move forward and be inspired as a closet member of LGBTIQ. Like the country Taiwan, I’m also dreaming that someday the Philippines will embrace tight the community through the help of local and international BL Shows.

Currently I’m a private tutor based in UAE for almost 2 years already. I started to watch Thai BL 6 years ago because of curiosity, until I got addicted to it already and even started reading novel that belong to the BL genre. For me being a part of the BL fandom is like escaping beyond the door to reality but outside that door I got a chance to meet different people and different groups to share with my Ideas. In addition to this, I support the LGBTQ+ community since I am part of it. Being a member of Psychomilk family added new flavor to my fan life. Thank you and lets spread the love to the world full of hates.

Hello! I got into BL a decade ago when I stumbled across a live action film that reminded me of Clamp manga. Since then I have been watching BL from all over the world and enjoy it immensely. I enjoy the books the shows are based on as well as the shows themselves. In my spare time I write my own BL horror novel. I’ve been writing since I was 6, I started loving M/M romance when I watched “The Interview With The Vampire,” an Anne Rice novel. Also, BL allows me to see well written gay romance without having to imagine what isn’t there.

  1. Hi! Thank you so much for your contributions to the BL genre. I always come to your website for recommendations and honest reviews. You are all such amazing and talented creators and authors, so thank you for your hard work! I was just wondering if you would eventually address other Asian BL media, such as Indian BL movies. There aren’t too many honestly, but a few come to mind 🙂

  2. Red,

    Maybe I’m late to the party, but just now read team Psycho Milk bios. I now understand why Psycho Milk is the superior product that is. Like FNGee, SOTUS and PresentPerfect caught my attention early on and after watching Addicted it was hopeless, I was hooked. In my opinion Addicted sets the standard for BL productions.

    Two questions if I may. I saw a trailer for Addicted 2 (?). Do you plan to comment on the details of the series like where it was filmed and how they got past Chinese censors? Is it also like the first production primarily BL themed? Release date and venue?

    As you know, PresentStillPerfect has been released in select theaters. I read the film is included with the GagaOOlala streaming service which is now available in the states. Correct? Aan Anusorn is amazing. Read your interview with him. Hoping there will be a follow up interview.

    Thanks again for the insightful reviews. I look forward to them. Must admit when you announced your new position was worried that Psycho Milk might be put on the back burner. Obviously that’s not the case. Thank goodness!

    • The position did not work actually. We are having a focus on Chinese BL so Addicted is being edited as we speak.

      Of course, more dir. Aam as always.

      Thank you for always supporting the site and the encouragement.

  3. Hello. Stumble upon this great blog. I am new to this genre. Can you please give me some recommendations? I am obsessed with plots involving cheating/revenge, obsessive partner, love-hate relationships. Kudos.

    • Welcome. You may not find that sort of complex storyline in current Thai BL. Most are school based and romantic.

      The best I can recommend are Japanese BL where it graduated from school-based plots and are dealkbg with more complicated characters and scenarios. Try Pornographer and Mood Indigo. These are a bit dark in mood and treatment but very satisfying.

      If something light and bubbly yet with substance, try WhyRU, UWMA.

      The more daring among Thai BL is TharnType and its highly recommended.

  4. OMG. YOU are a GREAT reviewer about TharnType. You literally captured all my thoughts on this series. To be honest, I’ve seen a few BL clips but have never been inspired to watch an entire series. TT was just a whole nother universe and level…the acting, the chemistry, the storytelling and direction are just awesome and addictive. I’ve been into movies of all kinds for 60 years and took movie classes at USC and TT is just great storytelling. Great entertainment makes you FEEL something and TT did that all over the place.👍

  5. How do you feel about Perth and Mean (and possibly Plan) not doing BL anymore? I personally am sad but I understand they feel the need to move on to other acting projects so they can grow. I’ve noticed that unless it is a Sotus project- Krist no longer does BL and that is the way Mean looks to be headed. He said unless he is paired with Plan, he doesn’t want to do BL.

    • I am skeptical that it is their personal decision. Their agents have reputation for lying so I look at it as damage control. Not for the actors but for the agent’s reputation.
      It’s a reflection on their ability to manage their talents. Despite numerous product placements and fan gatherings, why are they not happy? Also, we have no idea how much Perth and Mean earn from their work.
      Anyone working hard and not properly compensated will not last long.

  6. Dear Psycho-Milk,
    Thanks for your insightful background information on what seems to be fast becoming an international phenomenon. I stumbled on BL one rainy day in Phuket in 2016, watching a few episodes of “Making it Right” and not knowing what exactly to make of it. I found Sotus on Netflix this October and was enthralled by the actor playing Kongpob. I then found Sotus S on You Tube and Waterboyys, Kiss Me Again, Dark Blue Kiss, Tharn and Type and Love By Chance all rapidly followed. Your website has been helpful in its background info on the BL world and the Thai Film industry. However as a 58yr old out gay male, of Indo-South African descent living in Toronto, I have some questions:
    1. What does the average gay Thai male think of these series, as it seems the bulk of the fans are straight young women?
    2. Have any of the actors ever come out as gay?
    3. Are there any out gay writers working on any of these shows?

    I realize these are highly idealized and romantic depictions of love between two men, similar to a lot of our first love experiences. I think they fall short by not showing the emotional upheaval required to attain a gay identity. Characters like Pete ( Dark Blue Kiss) and Type (Tharn & Type) would really struggle with the idea well into their 30’s. Or then again maybe this is the new normal in this generation or in Thailand?
    Please enlighten me,
    Yours Gratefully,
    Ashley Singh

    • Ashley,

      Excellent questions that no doubt interest many of us.

      As a U S resident, I would add one more. Where can one watch these series (with English subs) in an uninterrupted and timely format? Certainly willing to pay for the convenience be it by subscription or PPV. As popular as the BL genre has become, seems there must be a way to capitalize on a hungry international audience.

      Where might one find your interview with Anusorn?

    • Hi there Ashley,
      BL or Boyslove is an offshoot of the Japanese Yaoi or what started as fanfiction literary creation by young women. The target audience are also young women. While it might seem that it is a representation of the LGBTQ+ community; BL really is mostly a make-believe world wherein beautiful boys fall in love with other beautiful boys. It does not reflect the norm in Thai culture -in fact, Thailand is not yet as open to the idea of homosexual relationships as depicted in the series. While a few of these actors are openly gay, most of them are straight with girlfriends. Unfortunately, toxic fandoms force them to keep their personal relationships under cover. These shows are mostly written by young women as novels, the scripts for the series are written by scriptwriters who are mostly gay men but they work hand in hand with the original authors to keep the essence of the novels. The growth of BL as a genre across the globe is slowly changing the landscape, while it may be make-believe now and a fantasy where gender and preference is not an issue, people are opening their minds about it being maybe a truth in the real world.

      • As always, so well stated.

        Notwithstanding it’s target audience of young girls I’m hopeful as the BL genre becomes more internationally mainstream, it will, intentionally or not, help to normalize the LGBTQ community in the heteronormative universe. Not easy to ignore the impact of two attractive young boys falling in love as anything other than a gay union. I’ve introduced a couple of straight friends to various BL series and without exception the reaction has been positive.

  7. Dear Psycho-Milk

    I came to Thai BL a different way. The first time I encountered the gay male relationship was in a book written by a female author who I met during one of my literature classes: Mercedes Lackey and her Valdemar series. She wrote the books as if being gay or straight or bi or intersex was normal and that everyone has a right to love whomever they wanted. I thought that was fascinating especially after the AIDS crisis and all the negativity being gay meant. We explored many themes including being gay in India during other literature classes I took and then I stumbled upon Japanese yaoi manga and I was hooked. The reason? I wanted something different from all the other characters choices the North American male was given to me as a woman. I got tired of the women (who never looked like me) being a damsel in distress and the guy never really and truly expressing his feelings without being overly aggressive. I also wanted to peek into a world I felt excluded from – where guys speak their minds with each other without trying to impress “a girl”.

    I’ve been a fan of BL now for over 15 years and have slid through Japanese yaoi manga, to anime (but for some Japanese yaoi because it is so graphic it slides into the hentai region) to Japanese BL live-action movies (most from yaoi mangas), to reading mm romance novels on Amazon to discovering Thai, Taiwanese and Chinese BL drama series and movies and I can safely say I am fully enjoying myself. My only problem happens when some of these dramas and movies have fan service, therefore, blurring the lines for their fans into believing that these (99% straight – even in gay porn) couples are real. I try not to watch them on Youtube and focus on just the series themselves, but even I can get suckered in.

    Well, that was all for now – sorry I talked your ear off – just wanted to share and connect with someone who loves the same genre I do even though we are no way alike.

  8. Enjoy very much Psycho Milk and the insightful reviews. Regarding that “subclass of men who can’t decide whether they like pussy or dick”, perhaps they have decided they like both equally well. In this day and age must one choose one over the other? Just a thought.

    • Being new to BL, I’m sorta lost. From you article “Their on-screen chemistry remains at a high level as in Love by Chance. And that’a not easy to do given all the controversies surrounding their casting, and what happens outside the show…” This is one of several references I’ve heard about problems with “Love by Chance”. It remains one of my favorite BL series, even winning out over SOTUS. I’m just wondering what was the controversy, and/or is there a history available to read (sorry, but in English) on this topic?

      • Hi Steve! Like other fandom or universe as some like to call BL, there are people who are opposed to each other, and that includes personalities associated with Saint and Perth. In all indications and according to reliable sources, the managers of both actors did not see eye to eye. The friction began in Love By Chance. By now there are fans and Twitter accounts out to smear Saint in particular. To be fair I was also looking for those who are doing the same to Perth. Right now it appears that the negativity is being orchestrated by someone in mithe Trigon club or whatever you may call it as movement or group.

        As for Saint and Perth, there appears to be.no personal issues with them. That is debatable of course since fans of both have opposing views.

      • Also big fan of LBC. Especially fond of Perth Tanapon who portrayed his character, Ae, so well.

        Slightly off topic, but just finished binging Netflix’s The Stranded. A bit disappointed that Perth’s screen time was minimal. The tragic dilemma he and his boyfriend were facing had much more potential for development. Perth did well but just disappeared for about 2/3 of the film. Anyway, it was great to see him in a production with global appeal. He is still very young and has lots of time to entertain us.
