  • Cast: Max Nattapol, Tul Pakorn, Aim Satida, Maengmum

Take my words seriously- If you truly love watching boy love drama and still haven’t watched Together with me, close this tab now and open Netflix. Reason? 

Firstly it’s a prequel to “Bad Romance” and secondly, it is the most believable and natural BL story ever dramatized.

I think the above-written logline is enough to induce your interest in this drama so I wouldn’t say more about the story. Also, If you are a binger like me you would not like to spoil your interest before you watch. 

Watch this drama if you want to taste the evolving Thai drama bl culture where gay love is expressed as a natural emotion of pure love, intimacy, and desire for belongingness.

12. Why R U? | เพราะรักใช่ป่าว

  • Logline: 2 entirely different yet closely related love stories.
  • Year: 2020
  • Genre: Friendship, Romance
  • Cast: Saint Suppapong, Zee Pruk Panich, Tommy Sittichok, Jimmy Karn

“Opposite attracts” sort of stories never get out of fashion for the straight romantic drama. The results of adapting the same are no different for male romance.

Why R U is a tale of two male couples. Tutor and Fighter being a fusion of fire and ice and Safiah and Zon being the adorable puppies. 

Viewers are skeptic about genres like ‘opposite attract‘ and skip watching them. It’s only when you somehow end up clicking that play button you get hooked to the story and its characters.

Somehow she happens to meet a magical unicorn rumored to fulfill wishes. In the excitement of making Vier love her, she wishes for a way to get closer to vier. Unfortunately, she discovers her wish has been misinterpreted by the unicorn when she wakes up as a boy. 

Great Men Academy is an energetic, fast-paced drama with likable characters. Binge it if you’re looking for a fun fantasy drama and avoid it if you are only looking for sentimental and intense male love drama.

  • Logline: A senior doctor and a junior engineer romantic affair.
  • Year: 2020
  • Genre: Romance, Life, School

Before you jump to a conclusion by reading the logline, let me make things clear. If you are a long-time BL fan you have already watched enough of this. I only recommend this to starters who are just exploring the fancy world of gay dramas. 

The story centers on two high school nerds. Gun Tossakan practices medicine whereas Bar Sarawat is an engineering student. Both being popular in high school, clash into arguments multiple times.  

It is a quick binge of just four episodes with not so sentimental exposure to a gay relationship.

  • ‘Cause You’re My Boy, 
  • Kiss Me Again 
  • SOTUS S: The Series

I think you’ll be comfortable watching Our Skyy even if you haven’t already watched any of these but still my recommendation weighs more for people who have already watched it.  

Each episode is dedicated to a BL couple from a hit BL series. Our Skyy not just fills the doubted potholes between the character but also leaves each episode in suspense, which makes it quite fascinating to watch.

IMPOSTER ALERT: I don’t know if it’s right or not, but I have deceived you a little. There aren’t 20 Thai BL dramas on this list. I wanted to share with you few BL dramas from other nations and creating a separate post for them was too much of a hassle. So, I sneaked them into this list and thus there are 4 imposter BL dramas on this list. Hope you’ll like them.

17. Cherry Magic!

  • Logline: A 30-year-old virgin is blessed with a superpower on this 30th birthday.
  • Year: 2020
  • Genre: Supernatural, Romance, Drama
  • Cast: Akaso Eiji, Machide Keita, Asaka Kodai
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ud6oJC4foLs

While most BL series focuses on the same repetitive narrative of school/college romance, Cherry Magic came in as a fresh concept and received huge liking from the BL community across the globe. 

The show talks about a 30-year-old virgin named Adachi Kiyoshi who gains a magical power to read people’s minds whenever he touches someone. 

One day he accidentally touches his co-worker Kurosawa Yuichi and learns that he has feelings for him. 

The best thing I liked about Cherry magic was that the story isn’t all about male romance, but Adachi overcoming his fear of understanding people without his powers. Definitely a must-watch for anyone reaching this webpage. 

Where to watch Cherry Magic!?

Watch Cherry Magic on TVer.

18. Like in the Movie

  • Logline: A story of a teenager becoming financially independent while struggling through his sexuality. 
  • Year: 2020
  • Genre: Life, Romance, Drama
  • Cast: Ian Pangilinan, Paolo Pangilinan, Adrienne Vergara

Another fresh BL drama with a realistic storyline is “Like in the Movie”. If you see the trailer you’ll find that it has just too much packed into it. 

The drama talks about Karl, a 19-year-old architecture student who is forced to learn how to be financially independent. 

However, his job turns him down and he finds it difficult to pay for the rent. Karl‘s only hope is his cocky neighbor Vladwho proposes to share Karl’s apartment. 

Like in the movie stands out from the rest of the Thai BL series. It highlights real-gay-life circumstances and explores the hardships that undergo exploring sexuality and identity.

20. Gameboys

  • Logline: A sweet love story between two online game streamers.
  • Year: 2020
  • Genre: Comedy, Romance, Life, Drama
  • Cast: Kokoy de Santos, Elijah Canlas, Adrianna So

Similar to Hello Stranger, Gameboys is also a new age post-pandemic BL romance drama. While both overlaps on the story Gameboys goes a step ahead in depicting homoeroticism and explores the social change of subjects like LGBTQ+

The show centers Cario, an online streamer who is caught by surprise when he receives a video call from his game rival Gavreel. We don’t need to stress much about what happens next as I have already cited the storyline of Hello Stranger above.

Gameboys bring forth a beautiful representation of gay characters, their emotions, sexuality, fears, and vulnerability. This one is a soft passionate drama in a nutshell.
