What The Duck (Season 1) aired from January to March last year and was immediately released to international fans soon right after. It also escaped my radar like I’m Your King. Continue reading “New BL Series: What the Duck: Final Call – รักแลนดิ้ง (2019)”
The previous teaser trailer did not give justice to the upcoming TV series He’s Coming to Me, in as much as the latest one. But still, the impact of seeing Singto Prachaya Ruangroj and Ohm Pawat Chittsawangdee together is more than what many could bear.
What would happen if Adisorn Hophrae, Piyacha Thongsuk, and the Capture Production team decided to make films full-time? Lucky for us BL lovers! (or any movie lovers for that matter).
While the film You Had Me At Hello is incredibly short at 25 minutes 52 seconds, it leaves so much to the imagination that one can’t help but clamor for more.Continue reading “Interview with Adisorn Hophrae & Piyacha Thongsuk about the short film ‘You Had Me at Hello’”
At 19, Thai actor Chimon Wachirawit is already amassing an impressive acting resume. He’s a rising star in the Thai BL firmament with a lead role in the movie Sweet Boy (2016), followed by a major role in My Dear Loser Series: Edge of 17 (2017). Both projects solidify his position in portraying gay characters. Continue reading “Chimon Wachirawit วชิรวิชญ์ เรืองวิวรรธน์ [Profiler – Ones2Watch Series]”
While it may not be a full, true-blooded BL series, Great Men Academy showcases seven (yes, read that: 7) young Thai actors out to capture the hearts of BL and non-BL fans from Thailand and elsewhere!
To start airing on 6th February 2019, Great Men Academy tells the tale of these young boys who are enrolled in a school out in the woods, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Continue reading “New TV Series: Great Men Academy – สุภาพบุรุษสุดที่เลิฟ releases teaser trailer!”
The film Present Perfect by Anusorn Soisa-ngim feels both Thai and ‘not Thai’ to me. Being so used to Japanese movies where silence and slow pacing are the norms, I thought I was seeing an indie Japanese film!
About a week ago, it was announced that Soisa-ngim will take charge of the 2 Moons 2 The Series. Apart from the international success of his films, it is now obvious that the Thai filmmaker has entered a new field – TV series, as director. With his name thrown into the spotlight, he gets to decide the next trends in Thai BL.Continue reading “Anusorn Soisa-ngim talks about Present Perfect, 2 Moons 2 The Series, actors and more!”
The initial animosity between a third-year and head hazer Arthit (Krist Perawat Sangpotirat) and his junior Kongpop (Singto Prachaya Ruangroj) has turned into something so romantic and so passionate that many Thai BL couples try so desperately to copy and emulate. Such is the effect of the SOTUS couple that their audience has reached far and wide.
Non Thanon is no ordinary singer. After winning 2 singing competition – The Voice Thailand (Season 1) and The Mask Singer (Season 4), his current music videos permeates and inspires both the young and the old. Not only is he mesmerizing Thai music lovers, but international music fans too!
After wowing Thai music lovers with his rendition of traditional Thai folk songs which he used as competition pieces, the new Non Thanon music is modern, vibrant, danceable, and energetic. Continue reading “The Music of NON THANON ธนนท์ จำเริญ (Tanont Chumroen)”

Jinjett “Jaonaay” Wattanasin – the eldest son of artist Jetrin “Jay” Wattanasin, aka King of Dance, and actress Ketmanee “Pin” Juntawong has released a new music video. This time, no famous Thai beaches, but lots of women! Continue reading “Jaonaay rocks in new music video! คืนที่ดาวเต็มฟ้า [Video]”
Heart Beat the Series is all about a high school boy band (led by Bas) who is given instructions to write a song for graduation. The singer is a famous boy, Toy, whom Bas dislikes.
One of the biggest factors why some Thai BL drama fails is lack of focus. In the case of ‘Cause You’re my Boy, the production team’s biggest mistake – aside from lack of focus – is lack of logic.
Among the characters handpicked to star in the 5-episode drama Our Skyy, it’s Chimon‘s Sun and Pluem‘s In who have the least exposure. While they are considered main in My Dear Loser Series: Edge of 17, it’s like New and Tay in Kiss Me Again, sharing the series with other actors.
Episode 2 of Our Skyy, offers a different take in the In-Sun relationship, which is summed up as:
One is trying to make up and confess. But the other one already has someone else.
In (Purim Pluem Rattanaruangwattana) was part of a group of bullies who took pleasure in tormenting Sun (Chimon Wachirawit Ruangwiwat) and other newcomers. Unlucky for In, there was bad blood between him and one of the more prominent bullies, thus he was out in no time. It was Sun and Ainam who took him in, thus a close bond between them developed.
Sun began to feel for In – in a romantic way and made his moves. But In prefers Ainam, or so he said. What could have been a sweet friendship between the boys turned sour. Sun tries to move on, but In sends mixed signals.
I’m going, to be honest with you. You know how I feel about you. If that kind of relationship is impossible, then I think you should just let me go. – Sun
At the end of My Dear Loser, there is no closure (nor any conclusion) between the boys.
Sun and I have always been friends. He’s really a great friend. He’s the one I’m closest with. But suddenly one day he thinks of me as something else. That’s freaking unfair to me. – In
Episode 2 of Our Skyy begins with In having traveled for miles in pursuit of Sun. When they finally meet up, Sun appears to enjoy the company of a travel companion. Our young pursuer can’t help but show his displeasure. Having realized his mistake, In is not giving up.
The episode is straightforward yet packed with tension (and a gorgeous countryside location!). Having joined a photo contest entitled ‘River of Life’, Sun aims to win the plum prize of a trip to Japan. While Toey offers his technical assistance, In joins the duo and hopes to seize an opportunity to corner Sun and say his piece.
Chimon who starred in the delectable Sweet Boy (2016) and The Gifted (2018) is no amateur. He is true to his gay character and knows how Sun thinks, acts, and reacts. He delivers a performance that is filled with a certain longing and pain. At 18, he has developed an acting style that is subtle but can deliver all the necessary emotional punches.
Pluem at 21 looks so baby-faced that you could mistake him for a 17-year old. Early in his career, he plays one of the leads in the coming-of-age gem Grean Fiction (2013). He’s also part of the ensemble cast of the dance-drama Slam Dance: The Series (2017). There were few opportunities for Pluem to shine in My Dear Loser, but here, he introduces to the audience who In really is.
They have undeniable chemistry – it’s obvious that they are comfortable working closely together. Fanservice or not, the In-Sun team is a strong contender for the BL love team of the year.
One of my favorite scenes has to be the singing part were both boys play the guitar and put into music what they’ve been hiding inside.
Toey (Mike Chinnarat Siriphongchawalit), Sun’s travel companion and ‘mentor’ kept himself highly visible in In’s romantic pursuit of the other boy. Is he a rival or someone with a hidden agenda?
Having seen the other episodes where memory registers so quickly, I find the In-Sun tandem exciting and unpredictable. There’s plenty that this couple can offer to an expectant BL public.
I love everything about this episode – In’s shy, tentative, yet sincere ‘reveal’ at the end provides for a satisfying conclusion.

Here’s the review of Episode 1
Also known as They’re Celebrating Qingming Festival Next To My Grave, the new series (of 8 episodes) stars Singto Prachaya Ruangroj and Ohm Pawat Chittsawangdee as a lonely ghost and his new-found friend.
Produced by LINE TV and is reported to be broadcasted from 28th February to 25 April 2019, the drama tackles the desperate attempt of a lonely ghost who wants to connect with humans. Luckily, he is visible to a strange young boy (Ohm) who fast became his friend. As Met (the ghost’s name, played by Singto) accompany the young boy to the city, he became attached emotionally until he develops feelings for him.
Singto is perfect for the role! He can always deliver emotional punches – with his expressive eyes, and a soothing voice that could sound sad and lonely. While Ohm remains a ‘contender’ with no lead role before this series, He’s Coming To Me, is the perfect acting vehicle to showcase his potential.
This is one of my personal biased 2019 BL series. Aside from the superb cast, I love romance and ghost (or spirits) as a combo, and the Thais are amazing when it comes to the supernatural.

Described by its production team – Capture Production – as a thesis movie project, You Had Me At Hello is a tale of young love between a slightly older boy named Tone (Jerasit Sukumpantanasarn) and Pun (Patiphan Siangphairo).
When Pun’s older sister began to worry about her brother’s poor academic performance, she seeks the help of Tone and serves as his tutor. Both boys treated this with a certain detachment. But after a few meetings, it seems they enjoy each other’s company. They became friends. And perhaps, something more.
There is nothing unique about the premise of the story. It could happen in real life. In fact, I think it happens quite a lot. What makes this short film (25 minutes) watchable is the notable chemistry between the actors.
Not sure where they got the inspiration for the title, but there’s an old Tom Cruise film named Jerry Maguire, and Cruise’s co-star Renee Zellweger delivered that line.
