If you do Yaoi or MM Romance, do you do Boys Love Dramas?

So, maybe you like Yaoi manga and anime and maybe you like MM Romance books. If so, you really need to check out Asian Boys Love Dramas. No really, I’m not kidding. There are a ton of these series coming out of places like Thailand, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and even China. And they’re good. Really good. Like, you can handle the subtitles good.

You can find many of these loaded up on YouTube and some even on Netflix (Gameboys – very sweet, or SOTUS – slow, slow burn, The Untamed – just awesome). There are also a lot of streaming apps available, namely, VIKI, LineTV and Tencent Video where free content is available or you can get a subscription.

Anyhow, back to the main point here. If you’re interested, then what to watch? My favorite couple (known as a “ship”) are those two guys above there, Max and Tul. They star in Manner of Death and the Together with Me Series (there are two) and their series have lots of man-on-man action, if you catch my drift, and feels. Some of my other notable favorites are:

  • HIStory 4: Close to You
  • Manner of Death (of course)
  • Together with Me (of course)
  • We Best Love
  • 2Gether the Series
  • TharnType

There are so many more, but I wanted to list out some that might get you all started. There’s a great list here: My Drama List

But, don’t believe me. Just watch this clip from HIStory 4: Close to You.

Anybody Else Watching Thai BL Drama?

Thailand's erotic Boys Love TV dramas are a hit with Indonesians, gay and  straight | South China Morning Post

I’ve been quarantining in my home, including working from home for almost a year now (since March). After going through every gay love story on Netflix, I found this interesting saga called, “The Untamed”. Wow, did it open my eyes to Asian boys love stories (BL). I’d watched BL in anime form before, but this is way better, believe me. I’m also used to sub-titles, which helps.

Anyhow, back to the Thai BL dramas. There are hundreds of these. They range anywhere from sweet high school romances to murder mystery romance with some really hot men thrown in.

Some of my favorites are (in no particular order)
1. TharnType
2. 2Gether
3. Manner of Death

Finding these to watch can take a bit of sleuthing, but most can be found on YouTube. Otherwise, there are apps that show them: LineTV, Tencent Video or Viki by Rukuten.

Let me know if you watch any of them and what you thought.

Oh, I do have some books coming out, so stay tuned:)
