The days when Boys Love is dominated by Thai and Japanese dramas with worldwide reach are waning. The Philippines is the new entrant to the BL world that “celebrates love in this purest form, beyond the shackles of simple gender or sexuality.” The success of popular Thai series like “TharnType the Series” and “2gether the Series” might have set a precedent, but the fact remains that the Boys Love dimension is witnessing the onset of a major revolution in the form of Pinoy BL. Although Pinoy Boys Love hasn’t yet quite reached the international territory that Thai BL creators enjoy or brought forth the same sensual intimacy they display, Pinoy BL is fast becoming a contender and a global phenomenon in this genre.Continue reading “Special Feature: Different Flavors of Pinoy Love [Opinion]”
“Caring” is a two-way street. If only one party keeps receiving and doesn’t give back, then the relationship would surely get weary sooner than later. Marwin has always been on the receiving end of the care extended by Tops. So, what happens when the tables turn and Tops is the one in need of TLC? Will Marwin live up to the challenge? Episodes 7 and 8 highlighted a different side of Tops and Marwin’s relationship, which was invariably pleasant and a total surprise to Mike, Marwin’s friend. Let’s review and enjoy the adorable moments sprinkled with a gourmet flair!Continue reading “Ingredients ส่วนผสมที่ลงตัว | (Episodes 7 – 8) [Review]”
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)”

Our adorable couple is back with oodles of romance coupled with a gourmet flair that leaves you wanting for more episodes. Jeff Satur and Gameplay Garnphapon have perfected the art of “Staring into your soul through your Eyes.” They don’t need to kiss or have a full make-out session to make the audiences feel Tops and Marwin’s connection. Because that would be totally out of character for our sweet couple, whose relationship is slowly and steadily moving beyond the “Roommates” status, let’s review what’s happening in their lives and get a taste of their happiness!Continue reading “Ingredients ส่วนผสมที่ลงตัว | (Episodes 5 – 6) [Review]”

GMM-tv’s handling of this ‘supposedly’ BL series started with a lot of potential and the interaction between the leads – Bright Vachirawit and Win Metawin were golden. However, after Episode 8, things began to feel ‘incomplete’. Our episodic reviews journal the highs and lows of this series, and we invite you to read them all!

Director Cheewin Thanamin is in his element when doing slapstick comedy. The unpredictable plot, the casting choices, the obviously pronounced special effects, and the overall craziness of YYY Series are entertaining as it is a showcase of pure eye candy. Most notable is DomundiTV talent Poppy Ratchapong who is – arguably – the star of the show. This review is a joint effort with Jen’s BL Views and Reviews!Continue reading “YYY มันส์เว่อร์นะ – BL Sitcom Episode 1-3 [Review]”

I’m in awe how Ohm Pawat has captured the imagination of BL watchers around the world. Aside from He’s Coming to Me and Dew, the movie, he plays an admittedly a ‘second lead’ in GMMtv’s 2020 gender-bender romcom/BL concoction entitled The Shipper – จิ้นนายกลายเป็นฉัน.Continue reading “The Shipper – จิ้นนายกลายเป็นฉัน (2020)”
