BL Series and Dramas List

Some interesting BL series include I Feel You Linger in the Air, Only Friends, and Sing My Crush.

BL series have become really popular in recent years. It used to be that you could barely find a non-stereotypical gay character on a TV show, let alone a male couple. Sometimes, they’d jump through hoops to imply the characters had feelings for each other, without actually showing them get together.

Nowadays, BL dramas are loud, proud, and out front and centre in the mainstream market. I’m still taken aback at how much BL dramas are thriving in countries like Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, and even South Korea. Is this a dream? When did I fall asleep and wake up to a world where other people enjoy the obscure BL series that I watch?

Despite my confusion, I’m glad that the genre has taken off, because it means there’s a growing list of good shows to watch. I’m loving all the new BL series that are seemingly coming out every other week. Personally, I can barely catch up with the flurry of upcoming BL series, but that’s a good problem to have.

As I catch up on each show in my BL series list, I will share my detailed thoughts and personal recommendations on BL Watcher. Check out some of these best BL dramas that have launched recently:
