A gif from Thai Drama ‘Hormones.’
Guess what? Some Thai dramas are now available on Netflix!
Asian dramas are really starting to spread internationally. It’s great that we now have a blend of Korean, Chinese/Taiwanese, Japanese, and now Thai dramas on Netflix. (Now, if only Netflix could get the rights to Filipino dramas, I’d be one happy camper.)
Aren’t you all just as surprised as I am? Honestly, so am I. Without GMMTV, I wouldn’t be able to watch most Thai dramas. The good news is that Thai dramas are starting to appear on Netflix. Sadly, it’s not easy to track them down unless you’re already familiar with the titles like I am. That said, I’ve managed to pull together a list of Thai dramas that I found.
It would be useful if Netflix added a category for Thai dramas. I know some of these dramas popped up on Netflix as far back as April. I really want to take the time to recognize these dramas. Also, please take note that licenses don’t last forever. I have no idea what kind of licensing agreement Netflix has made. It might be a good idea to watch what you can.
If you need help searching for Thai Dramas on Netflix, my suggestion is to use the search bar. You will want to search for ‘Thai dramas.’ Also, you will have to sift through the results to identity what is what. Unfortunately, the search results are not always 100% accurate. It’s not a fool proof method, either.
These are mostly teen/young adult dramas and may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Some of these dramas are a few years older or more. If I remember correctly, I think Club Friday and/or Hormones used to be available on GMMTV’s youtube channel. I’m not 100% sure and I don’t see them there, either.

Tips & Tricks
Netflix sorts everything by genres. Sometimes these are so specific that there is no easy way to track them down. I’ve managed to find some specific links that I hope aid you in finding what you want. Hope this process makes Netflix easier to navigate. You can always search by these genres and Netflix should pull mostly relevant content.
FYI, some of these links will display redundant content. I hope these categories make it a little easier to find Thai dramas.
**If you find that any of the above dramas are no longer available on Netflix, please let me know. I will try to update this post at least once a month.**
