Many new 2023 BL series have emerged this year. The genre continues growing in popularity across many countries, particularly Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Notably, Korean BL dramas have skyrocketed in quality, proving the creators understand what stories can captivate mainstream audiences. Additionally, the Thai BL wave shows no signs of slowing down. From sequels to remakes, these romantic tales dazzle us with their charm and humour.
A few entries stand out as contenders for the best 2023 BL dramas. Two of my personal favourites include Our Dating Sim and The Eighth Sense. Our Dating Sim is a simple love story about childhood friends, impressing me with its charming romance and spectacular kisses. Likewise, The Eighth Sense is a masterpiece that redefines the meaning of excellence in the genre. From complex themes to poignant emotions, this revolutionary series is a treat for those who love mature love stories.
2023 is a promising year for BL dramas, movies, and anime series. As new shows come out weekly, I compile a comprehensive list of the BL that has aired thus far. Admittedly, it doesn't contain all the dramas. You may find several omissions that I have missed. Nonetheless, I intend to catch up, watching one BL drama at a time. The 2023 BL series list will receive regular updates as I prepare new reviews.
