If you’re looking for Thai Boys Love dramas on Netflix, you won’t find many. However, if you’re a U.S. viewer like I am, that doesn’t mean we’re left in the dark. Before I go into a brief list of these dramas, I wanted to take a moment to explain the phenomenon that is Boys Love, stylized as BL.
What is a Boys Love drama?
Boys Love dramas focus primarily on the homosexual relationship between two boys. You’ll find them pretty commonly in Thai dramas that skew towards a young adult demographic—think high school and college-aged. They are quite popular and draw in many fans.
Where can I watch these dramas?
As I mentioned above, there are a few Thai BL dramas on Netflix. Another popular destination is GMMTV’s YouTube page. A lot of their young adult demographic dramas are there and there are quite a few Boys Love dramas. Also, make note that some dramas do feature heterosexual characters, but some have secondary BL plot lines such as Kiss: The Series, Kiss Me Again, Senior Secret Love: Puppy Honey 1 & 2, Slamdance and many more here.
Thai Boys Love Currently on Netflix:
Love and academics get complicated at an all-male college that happens to be located next to an all-female high school.
This drama features issues and experiences of Thai teenagers in high school such as relationship, sexuality, sex, bullying, school gang violence and substance abuse. Family issues are also gradually revealed as the series progresses.
From a teenage parkour enthusiast to a bawdy restaurateur, an eclectic group of characters find romance in Bangkok’s glittering Silom district.
Note: This drama is not appropriate for younger viewers. There are more adult themes and content in Innocence. However, there is a boys love story line, so I felt compelled to mention it.
When freshman engineering student Kongpob stands up to older bully Arthit, their confrontation soon leads to a deep attraction between the two boys.
After a night out, Sandee wakes to discover she and her buddy have either taken their platonic friendship to a whole new level or ruined it forever.
Note: This is another example of a drama where there is a slight boys love storyline, but it isn’t the main focus. However, Kiss Me Again and Dark Kiss are on GMMTV, which feature a lot more BL content.
For a comment list of all Thai dramas currently available on Netflix, you can check out my list here. I do my best to keep it updated, but Netflix is good at adding new things when I don’t get on there for a while. That said, I hope you’ve enjoyed this little post and were able to find what you’re looking for.
