What does BL mean?

BL stands for Boys Love, a popular genre in East Asia.

BL stands for Boys Love, an umbrella term that describes TV shows, movies, anime, manga & games with a focus on male relationships. This genre appeals to those who are interested in watching fictional romances and love stories between two men.

BL has gained mainstream popularity in recent years, especially in East Asia. I have watched Thai BL, Japanese BL, Korean BL, Chinese BL, Taiwanese BL, among shows from many other countries. The language of romance is universal, and a classic love story is interesting to watch from anywhere in the world. For BL fans, we appreciate the compelling relationship drama, as the characters go through emotional highs and lows in their quest for love.
