Even before Addicted Heroin exploded on the social circuit and took the Chinese Mainland by storm in 2016, there were numerous Chinese BL dramas that were consistently challenging the inner core of the strict Chinese Government censorship. Falling in Love with a Rival (2015), Love is More than a Word and Men with Sword (2016), Beloved Enemy; Advance Bravely; Till Death Tear Us Apart (2017) and Guardian (2018) were a popular few to name. However, it wasn’t until The Untamed (2019) became a global phenomenon that Chinese production houses took the Boys Love business seriously.Continue reading “News Feature: Upcoming Chinese Bromance Dramas (2020-21)”
Months after 2Gether the Series ended, most of the BL fans have now moved to make memes or are still raging about the way Sarawat & Tine high-fived (sigh! I seriously was not expecting that from the showrunners) to show their love for each other in the last episode. While many of us were already upset with the last-minute, and convoluted plot twists, the last episode totally crushed all the hopes of seeing even a little intimacy between the boyfriends. (quite a fair request, right?) But even with that outrage, you simply cannot ignore the numbers of views this series received and the way it ruled worldwide trends on Twitter for hours after it premiered on Friday nights.Continue reading “Still 2Gether – เพราะเราคู่กัน (2020)”
Times change, and following into the footsteps of Thai and Japanese BL, we have innumerable BL dramas being produced in other Asian countries like the Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea, Myanmar, and even Cambodia. Boys Love is becoming a worldwide phenomenon. But the fact remains that the top echelon is still owned by the ingenious Thai BL industry, which is always a step ahead when it comes to portraying their characters with a touch of reality. The recent success of “TharnType the Series” and “2gether the Series” paved the way for more futuristic projects. Filipino BL dramas “Gameboys the Series” and “Hello Stranger” have placed the Boys Love business on the world stage. But still, I reckon that they lack the intimacy factor that Thai BL portrays fearlessly. Whether popular Filipino BL drama series can take up the mantle and strike the deal is yet to be seen?Continue reading “Upcoming Thai BL Dramas (2020-21)”
Following in the footsteps of popular Thai BL novels that are being adapted into drama series like “My Ride International” and “Manner of Death,” the latest entrant to join the bandwagon is “Teddy Bear Miracle.” Based on the fantasy theme of a Teddy Bear coming to life and the resulting complications, this anticipated drama drew attention even before the casting was announced.Continue reading “News!

Much credit to the ingenious mind of one Khun Salil when the author transformed a rather obscure, very scientific term Absolute Zero – with no romantic or relational definition – into something associated with the heart and its various terms of endearment and failings. Recent reports suggest that Studio Wabi-Sabi (Love by Chance, UWMA Series) has acquired the rights to turn the novel into a live-action adaptation.Continue reading “Absolute Zero – องศาสูญ The Series (2021)”

5 April 2020 updates: It’s incredibly unfair for this series to be ranked only #22 when it has VIP limitation. Plus the YT clips are not of the highest quality. While the actual series itself is getting better, it remains underrated.
Here is the detailed schedule of broadcast:

Zee Pruk as Fighter in WhyRU
It takes a certain level of dedication to dive into a character, especially so if you portray a BL role and you’re straight. I think though, sexual preference should be minimized as a point of reference and assess an actor based on performance. Zee Pruk as Fighter epitomizes the jock.
