I had forgotten how important silence can be or how impactful, certain gestures can be. Just in time for PRIDE month, Sisak delivered me right into the middle of “A New World.” A world that is silently being rebuilt on hope and belief! Hoping that someday homosexuality would ‘not be taboo’ anymore, and the belief that “Everyone will have the freedom to love freely.”Continue reading “Sisak – India’s First LGBTQ Love Story”
Wang Yibo (Chinese: 王一博; Korean: 왕일박), born on August 5th, 1997 is a Chinese actor, dancer, rapper, host, and a professional auto racer. He is one of the members of popular Korean-Chinese boyband UNIQ, under Yuehua Entertainment. He debuted as a member of UNIQ in 2014 with the song “Falling in Love” and made his acting debut with the movie “MBA Partners” in 2016. He drew widespread appreciation for his portrayal of Lan Wangji in the 2019 Bromance “The Untamed.”Continue reading “Wang Yibo | 王一博 | [Profiler]”
Some stories are exemplary, while others are plain mediocre. My Engineer wasn’t entirely lackluster, but the show’s highlight was the four main couple’s chemistry and relationship development. The drama managed to gain a niche audience by portraying a different yet unique storyline tailored for each couple, which managed to capture the audience’s attention from Day 1. Season 1 might have ended on a bittersweet note, but the promise of Season 2 has already increased the anticipation. Let’s review the Finale Episode.Continue reading “My Engineer เมีย’s วิศวะ – Episode: Season 1 Finale [Review]”
This short Indian film is a wake-up call to those who enjoy the freedom to love anyone, no matter the gender. In this short film, there is no touching – no embrace, no kiss, no intimacy. It’s only extended stares of longing, yet the love is in abundance.Continue reading “Sisak: India’s First Silent LGBTQ Love Story – 2019 [Video]”
Maligned even before it was shown, Sakristan’s premiere started with a big bang! Like a GMM-tv BL premiere, the chats are populated with eager and excited fans. In the case of Sakristan, there is already an assumption of defiance and notoriety. The opening credit baits conservative viewers to have an open mind. On the other hand, it offers a comedic ‘remark’ to a captured audience that is waiting with bated breath.Continue reading “Sakristan (Altar Boy) – Episode 1 [Review]”
For people who follow me on Twitter, I make it no secret that I like shows and books of the BL genre. It’s also a fact that most who follow me know which shows and books I like, and the ones I DON’T like. While I have been reading M/M love stories for quite some time, I just started watching Thai BL dramas just this year. Thanks to following Psycho-milk.com & the owner Red on Twitter, I always have an eye on upcoming BL dramas, and one that I am very excited to watch is My Ride, the Series which is an adaptation of the book – My Ride, I Love you.Continue reading “My Ride: I Love You [Book Review]”
This is Psychomilk’s second full interview with the good doctor. Our first interview tackles gay rights in Thailand and about his upcoming series, My Ride. This time, we dive deeper into Dr. Patrick Rangsimant’s ‘psyche’ in terms of how he manages his time and his insights into the world of BL.Continue reading “Spotlight on Utain Boonorana (Patrick Rangsimant) [2nd Interview]”
For years, I have been a silent fan of Original Soundtracks from movies and more recently, the sweeping and heart-tugging theme songs that BL Series from across Asia have been producing like they’re nothing more than arranged poetry – lush, poetic and sung like scores meant to induce the viewer’s emotions to soar.
It’s just a matter of day before we get to see Sakristan, a different BL series with an equally unique style and point of view. While the BL community is familiar with the religious flavor of Thailand – the merits of having been blessed at their temples and by their ever-considerate monks. The Philippines – being the only Catholic nation in Asia – has a rather more volatile nature but at the same time, as poignant and as spiritual as its Southeast Asian neighbor.

There are about 20 upcoming BL TV series and gay movies that feature some of the best Filipino filmmakers today and starring the hottest young talents diving into the BL craze. But long before the BL push (from Thailand,) some of these actors have already made names in both the local and international scenes. Let’s get to know them, shall we?Continue reading “Meet the Hottest Pinoy Actors Doing BL! (2020 Edition)”
Episode 5 of YYY The Series is my favorite so far. While not without glitches, it is the most ‘serious’ among the five installments of the show. If you recall the warning at the beginning of each episodes, we were told not to take the show seriously, yet it has become rather serious – in a good way. This review is a joint effort with Jen’s BL Views and Reviews!Continue reading “YYY มันส์เว่อร์นะ – BL Sitcom Episode 5 [Review]”
If you have watched “The Untamed” and enjoyed the subtle romance between main leads Lan Wangji & Wei Wuxian, then Guardian should be on your playlist. Despite the blatant censorship by the Chinese Government that prohibits depictions of same-sex relationships on television, the drama manages to clearly spell out the love that the main characters Shen Wei and Zhao Yunlan have for each other.Continue reading “Guardian | 镇魂 | Review”
For international BL fans, they may not be so familiar, but for discerning moviegoers and critics (both in the Philippines and in the international film festival circuit), Elijah Canlas and Kokoy De Santos are acclaimed for their noteworthy performances. Canlas is the star of Kalel, 15 – about a young boy who contracted AIDS, while De Santos plays the main character in Fuccbois, about male bikini contestants who got involved in a sex scandal.Continue reading “Psychomilk talks to Elijah Canlas and Kokoy De Santos of Gameboys!”
The BL pair of Talay Sanguandikul and Yoon Phusanu is one of the two major reasons why YYY The Series is such an entertaining show. Of course, Poppy Ratchapong is the other big factor for the series’ success. It’s the perfect blend of romance and wacky comedy that makes every episode worth it. In this YouTube video, the pair extended their magic!
The Shipper takes over the highly coveted BL slot of GMM-tv from the hugely popular 2Gether The Series. While its predecessor commanded millions of views, The Shipper only took in about a quarter of that. Not that it’s an inferior show since viewers still have to get a hang of it.Continue reading “The Shipper – จิ้นนายกลายเป็นฉัน Episode 1 [Review]”
Emotional security takes a nosedive as we approach the finale week. Our four main couples are going through major changes in their relationship, some good, some bad. Some draw a blank, and some are left in a state of confusion while others are ending their relationship over apparent miscommunication. Let’s review Episodes 12 and 13.Continue reading “My Engineer เมีย’s วิศวะ – Episodes 12 – 13 [Review]”
