Gay Thai Drama / Thai BL stories

Recommended Posts

I am trying to fill the gap until my next south-east-asia trip and decided to watch some gay thai dramas on Youtube.

So far finished 5 (yes the Christmas/New Year holidays where rather convenient this year ...):
- Waterboyy the series
- Kiss me again
- Dark blue kiss
- Theory of love
- 3 will be free

While not always of highest artistic quality, the stories are entertaining, there is a lot of eye-candy and I can try to improve my
(extremely modest, close to 0%) listening comprehension of the Thai language (now reaching 7%).


It feels there is an almost unlimited number number of gay love series. Every time one of us guys enters a gogo bar in Thailand,
somewhere in asia the production of a new gay love series starts. Why is that so? Ok I know why we visit gogo bars, but why are there so many
gay drama series? The last (and only?) series in the western world that comes to my mind is queer as folk, and that is now quite a few years in the past,
but since then nada?
Is it the general love of Thais/Asians for dramas, and the many gay series only reflect the 5-10% gay in the population?
Who is the main audience? (ok I think I can answer this one myself by checking the comments on youtube: mostly asian teenage girls probably)
There is a website for asian lakorn/drama series, https://mydramalist.com
That's basically the IMDB of asian drama.

"3 will be free":
I liked it a lot. It is not a typical BL story.
The story is embedded in the mafia mileu, so a lot of dead bodies.
Neo, one of the 3 main characters is a gogo boy in a gogo bar for women.
Shin, the other guy, is the son of the mafia boss, very cute played by the actor Tay Tawan. He appears in many more BL stories.
The third main character Miu is a girl, and the three develop some attraction/love to each other so they become some sort of "triple".
I am suprised that such a theme is shown on a Thai TV Channel, but maybe I underestimate the tolerance of (younger?) Thai people.
There is also a ladyboy role that was actually quite good (not the typical screeching ladyboy)
I won't tell you how the story ends, because a least some of you will watch till the end after you have seen Neo showing off his abs in a gogo dance
in the first episode:

Who else here became a fan of Thai Drama?

So many Thai BL stories on TV there because the young Thai Girls LOVE THEM!! Big Big Fans... Send me a PM if you want a Site with these available as Torrents. ENJOY!!  

Thanks. I never used torrents. So far i will watch those that are available on Youtube and Netflix. GMM-TV seems to publish all their series also on Youtube, so I am not likely to run out of stories soon.

Are not most boys in these series chinese-looking Bangkok hi-sos ? Give me a movie with brown-skinned isaan country boys any time !

Thats true. To like not only brown-skinned isaan country boys but also chinese looking ones helps :)
I suspect many of the actors look much whiter on screen than they really are...

Most of the above mentioned series have a running time of about 45-60 min per episode and build on each other. On Youtube often one episode is cut into 4 pieces (commercial breaks?).

Maybe things have changed, but as far as the emphasis on lighter skin, at least it used to be that the common perception was that Koreans were the best looking, so that might resonate here more than saying "Chinese looking."  Korean bands, pop stars, etc. are big here and lots of Korean TV programs air here on TV.  (Of course there are lots of reasons - perceptions of working class/poverty, etc.). Just in my experience talking with Thais - men or women - they will almost all admit to finding Koreans attractive, but not so true vis a vis Chinese, as long as we're generalizing.

Yes, korean kpop idol look is desireable not only in thailand but the rest of south east asia. Two of jupiter boys who actually looks and dressed like korean idol only goes with female customer based on mamasan intel. To me, i feel they look too feminine or girlish or maybe boyish or maybe gayish? Lol but what do i know, i like muscular manly man.

thank you for a lead

I'm on 5th episode and after initial doubts I found it  very engaging.

You are right about dead bodies and even more about Neo's abbs.

Me 2...I like guys with muscles...KPop boys did not give me a hard-on, even slight, no offense meant...

Give it a try to "Until we meet again" they have 10 episodes so far and quite a good story line, needless to say, main cast is really nice. Especially Korn and Dean. Though Korn looks slightly like Korean/Chinese.

If the Korean is muscular and looks masculine, I might give it a try, but if they're like KPop with feminine look, I'll pass...
