21 Best BL Series You Should Watch Now

I have written a couple of articles about the best BL series and it only included BL series from China, Taiwan, and Thailand. The Philippines has not produced a BL series at that time so I am now making a new post of the best BL series you should watch including the ones from The Philippines and Vietnam.

To be honest, it was very hard to rank these BL series because some of them are equally good. I have watched all of these series and I highly recommend that you watch these too if you are into BL.

If you think that there are other BL series that deserve to be on this list, please mention the title in the comment section below. I’d love to hear your opinion.

Must-Watch BL Series

21 Tien Bromance

Country: Vietnam

Tien Bromance is probably the first Vietnamese BL series with a huge budget. It started as a horror/suspense series and then turned into action and drama. At first, it was kinda weird, but you’ll appreciate it a soon as it progresses. The most interesting parts are after episode 5.

17 He’s Coming To Me

Country: Thailand

He’s Coming To Me is not your typical BL drama. It’s about two people who fell in love with different circumstances. It’s a story of Mes, a ghost who has not reincarnated yet because he did not know the reason of his death. He was full of loneliness until he met a young boy, Thun who can see him. This is a story of friendship turned into something deeper.

16 Together With Me

Country: Thailand

Together With Me tells us the story of Knock and Korn prior to the “Bad Romance” series. It stars Max Nattapol Diloknawarit as Korn and Tul Pakorn Thanasrivanitchai as Knock. This is an adult version of BL series. There so many hot and sexy bed scenes here. It’s one of the most steamy BL series I have watched so far.

Together With Me

15 Theory of Love

Country: Thailand

Theory of Love is the most relatable BL series I have watched so far. If you experience unrequited love then you should watch this. This will surely make you shed tears. I know that most of us do not get a happy ending but Third and Khai got their happy ending so it’s something to look forward to. The plot is quite a cliche but it was played well so it’s worth spending time.

14 My Day The Series

Country: Philippines

My Day the series is one of the top of my list of the best Pinoy BL series that I have watched. It’s steamy but the sexy scenes were done with taste. It’s sexy but not vulgar. I love the tandem of Sky and Ace. They are both amazing actors. I love their chemistry. What I didn’t really enjoy is the side stories, especially the one with Moira. To me, it really doesn’t add value to the series. But, yeah, this is nice. I am so looking forward to the next episode.

My Day The Series

13 HIStory: Trapped

Country: Taiwan

HIStory3: Trapped is not your typical BL series. The plot is quite different from the usual BL series we see. It’s a romantic-comedy, action BL. It’s full of utterly thrilling scenes. It won’t bore you, I promise you.

HIStory: Trapped

12 HIStory: Crossing The Line

Country: Taiwan

Made in Taiwan, HIStory 2: Crossing The Line or Boundary Crossing is a story about passion and romance. The story revolves around four people: Wang Zhen Wu, Wang Zhen Wen, Qiu Zi Xuan, and Xia Yu Hao.

This Taiwanese BL series stars Fandy Fan, Zach Lu, Nick Yang, and Patrick Shih. The plot may be a cliche “I hate you then I fall for you” but the actors made it interesting. I love the chemistry of Qiu Zi Xuan and Xia Yu Hao here.

HIStory: Crossing The Line

11 My Extraordinary

Country: Philippines

My extraordinary has a different vibe. I don’t know but I got hooked when I watched the pilot episode. I like the plot and how Ken and Shake subtly fall for each other.I mean, you can definitely see there is something going on between the two of them. There were no words yet, but when Ken held Shake’s hand in the theater, I felt the love.

My Extraordinary

10 Gaya sa Pelikula

Country: Philippines

Gaya sa Pelikula is one of those “chill” BL series. It has no toxic characters, at least for now as it is still on episode 5 of 8.  I love the chemistry between Vlad and Karl. The “Hey, neighbor” scene was so hot! I am looking forward to the next episode.

9 2 Moons The Series

Country: Thailand

Aside from the obviously good looking actors, 2Moons is also a BL series full of love and romance. There are no sex scenes and very limited kissing scenes but the love story of Wayo and Phana will make you look forward to each episode. It stars Bas Suradej Pinnirat as Wayo, a freshman student and God Itthipat Thanit as Phana, a popular second-year student and the previous year’s Campus Moon.

2 Moons The Series

8 Dark Blue Kiss

Country: Thailand

Who can’t get over with Pete and Kao? Well, I can’t! Their tandem is probably one of the most remarkable in the BL genre. Dark Blue Kiss is a story two young male couple, Pete and Kao played by Tay Tawan Vihokratana and New Thitipoom Techaapaikhun respectively.

Dark Blue Kiss

7 Game Boys

Country: Philippines

Game Boys is the first Filipino BL series I watched and it did not disappoint me. I had no expectations whatsoever but it instantly became my favorite Filipino BL series. The chemistry between Cairo and Gavreel is on point. I love the OST, the musical scoring, the plot, the actors, the acting, and the whole direction of the show.

The simplicity of the plot made it easy to follow. The conflict introduced here and there fit the storyline. Also, I believe that Pearl’s character was an integral part of the success of the series. She’s amazing. Seriously, we all need a Pearl in our lives.

TharnType is a hit Thai BL Series. In fact, it is considered as the most successful BL series in Thailand in 2019. It’s a story of two college dormmates, Tharn and Type. Type is homophobic who learned that his roommate, Tharn is actually gay.

The chemistry between Mew and Gulf is undeniably adorable. The story will also make you fall in love with both of them. Thanks to its success, it gets a second season this year.

  2. After watching ” Addicted” , I was so hooked that to feed my curiosity I had read the novel… Volume 1 and 2 both… I think this is a story that I can’t get over ever… After Addicted I had watched plenty of BL series.. but no doubt there was no other BL seriesv as good as addicted….

  3. THE UNTAMED will always be the best for me. it’s the eye fxcking for me lol. seriously tho, i understand why most bl articles wouldn’t include the best of the bests because it was not labeled as a yaoi genre but people who haven’t seen this drama are really missing out big time! it’s been 2 years, but this drama has set the highest standards and has stole my heart forever.

    • I really agree…haha…even though the untamed has 50+ episode..i still can watch it again n again without get bored…oh have you seen the special edition of the untamed?

    • 1-The Untamed-China-you just need to get past first 15 episodes and then you will definitely fall in love with the series
      2-2gether-Thailand- the only show that i like. I despise thai BLs. Such a cringe
      3-we best love-Taiwan- Season 2 is even more lovable.
      4-pornographer and Moon Indigo-Japan- If you are okay with adult scenes. It is pretty sensual, especially the second season(Mood Indigo) of Pornographer(which is season 1)
      5-People like Korean BLs too, me on the contrary loved some of the old Korean Gay movies instead–like No Regret and Night Flight.

    • The unteamed is the always best for overall,but the unteamed is not a bl searise ist is a bromance drama.but it is my favourite drama.

  4. I have watched most of them but personally, the best for me is the SOTUS. SOTUS S and it’s mini continuation entitled Our SKY. If I were to compare them with other Bl series. This series in terms of all aspect is a gem. Not just because of the brilliant plot of it but, I would say the actors are truly amazing. Unlike other Bl series, this series gave me the so realistic vibe. They are so natural when it comes to acting. It’s the best closeted gay couple of all time. Though, I got hooked also with other Bl. I cannot deny the fact that SOTUS is the best so far. I can’t even lie. I just love the pink milk. Hahahahh

  5. SOTUS is literally the best BL series for me…. kongpob…. seriously…. what a personality he has…. Singto and Krist have a special space in my heart because of their impeccable performance as lovers…. and Singto is hot…
