Another month another list of upcoming and missed BLs! Unfortunately, like some other months, this month is a little light on new content, but I’m happy to report there are some real cute ones coming. Plus? Some of the shows for 2022 have been announced (I’ll go over them in another post) and we are just going to be dodging and weaving new dramas! Isn’t that a great place to be? As a BL fan, let me assure you, the answer to that is yes.
Now, as usual, we’re going to start with what we’re currently watching or have finished during the last month?
Don’t Say No – Surprisingly, I super like this one. We’re moving through it pretty slowly, but I like the premise and the characters are great. Its an interesting concept and they are executing it well.
Bite Me – I used to like how slow this show was, now its driving me effing crazy. MOVE FASTER.
Bad Buddy – This one just started this month and we already jumped on it. With a name like Bad Buddy how can you resist. Its definitely the Romeo and Juliet of BL.
Seven Series – We were hoping for lighthearted fun, but this series of stories told per episode is more teh afterschool special of BL. I’m not certain I’m going to go back to it.
Light On Me – This is CUTE. Another one where I was surprised how cute I found it. I love how straightforward the main character is.
See You After Quarantine – This was a fluffy bit of nothing.
Tasty Florida – Who can say no to these Korean BLs? This one isn’t going to hit any of my top Korean BL lists, but it wasn’t terrible.
Love Area – I didn’t like this one at first but as the show went along it got better. I ended up really liking the quietness of the end and will be interested to see where season two goes.
Now all of the shows we either missed in previous BL passes or the shows that are coming up in November!
I’m A Fool For You Season 1 (4 Eps)
Three young boys, who were high school friends, lost contact with each other after graduation. Four years later, they meet each other coincidentally. Although they’ve grown up and changed, conflicts are occurring between them.
I’m A Fool For You Season 2 (4 Eps)
An aspiring singer continues to pursue his dream. Despite the reunion with his high school friends, he remains lost and his love life, complicated. With the friends he reencountered a new chapter of his life is written.
Chapter of Green (12 Eps)
Two long-time friends working as Barista. But do they have feelings more than just colleagues or friends?
Will we watch? These episodes are like 5 minutes long and are being shown on Tictok so while we will watch them, we’ve decided to do it solo.
Bad Buddy (12 Eps)
Ever since they were young, Pran and Pat’s fathers’ had a deep and raging rivalry — trying to one-up each other on everything. This also extended towards their sons. Comparing their sons’ achievements and merits, whether it be academic or extracurricular — the two fathers left no stones unturned to outshine and gloat in front of the other.
It was almost like rivalry was passed down as a family heirloom and the two boys became rivals as well. Until… they grew tired and became friends. Really good friends.
However, because of their fathers’ rivalry, their friendship had to be kept under wraps. And so began a journey of secret friendship… and then perhaps a sweet secret romance?
Will we watch? As said above yeah, we already started this one and Alix LOVES it. I’m taking a little while to warm to it mostly because this is going to hit full angst soon… also Pat’s friends really irritate me. Its very much a Romeo and Juliet story retold…. probably just with less murder.
The Love that Dare Not Speak Its Name (Ep 6)
Two best friends and roommates from college, a café owner and a normal office worker have leaned on each other amidst their quarter-life crisis. In spite of being more than friends, they have never dared to explore the deep waters and define their great chemistry.
Circumstances have brought changes upon their relationship and while the café owner tried to make a move, everything went out of balance.
“You are the gentle, guiding ray in the city’s blinding lights.”
Will we watch? Ummm Is it just me or is everything sounding really good tonight? (In all honesty, though, I’m starting the comments from the bottom back up to the top of the post, so its possible the ones above this could be terrible. But the ones below? YEAH.
Love With Benefits
First, Play and Pluto will stay under the same roof for 10 days. What would be the benefits of staying together? Will love blossoms secretly?
Will we watch? Awww it has the guy from He She It AND Ingredients just with another partner. I’m interested to see what he can do outside the standard pairing.
Between Us Special
Don’t get excited this is NOT the Between Us series but a special episode and it’s behind a paywall. But will we watch? HELLZ YEAH. I’ll whip out nine dollars for this thing. How much will it be for the whole series? I’m here for it. I have cash and I’m ready to throw it at you.
Nut, an ambitious artist who is responsible for the mixed art ‘Loveless Society’, comes into contact with Guy, a shrewd and flirtatious photographer, when both of them are assigned to compete in the ‘BAD Award’ competition alongside Mick, a deep thinking art-director, and Sa, a dreamy photographer. The friends are about to face a tough time under Guy’s leadership, as his attempts to get into Nut’s heart affect his approach to their ongoing situations. This chaotic relationship brings them to a crossroads in the way of life, work and love. A way that is not as easy as they thought it would be in a real society of love.
Will we watch?: I know I’m pretty tired right now but I’m having trouble understanding the premise. But its a Thai BL, soooooo yeah, we’ll watch it eventually.
Utsukushii Kare (My Beautiful Man)
Hira Kazunari, a high school student who doesn’t talk much, has no friends and belongs to the bottom of his class. The person he falls in love with at first sight is Kiyoi Sou. He is “The King” who doesn’t hang out with anyone, is equally ruthless, and reigns at the top of the class. With the hope Sou will notice his presence, Kazunari serves him devotedly, running errands and buying lunch. But his faith in the absolute monarch gradually falls into lust.
Will we watch? OOOOH This looks like it could be cute? The falls into lust makes it seem like it shifts smutty but I’ll withhold judgement until about halfway through the show.
Paint With Love
Met is a wedding organizer who has hired Phap, a poor artist, to work on a painting for an upcoming wedding. Phap has ruined something and now has to work for Met to pay off his debt to him.
Will we watch? Looks like this could be like Love Area, but hopefully cuter? I’m also excited to see the wedding organizer portion of the story.
