Hello BL Lovers!
It’s Sunday, so it’s time for another BL Review!
With so many great series out there it’s hard to decide which ones to follow. While this list is small, if you have any recommendations please don’t hesitate to let me know.
VICE VERSA – EPISODE 9: CLOUD GREY
This episode was really a lot of fun for me. Not only does Perth make his GMMTV Debut but the series continues into the BL Megaverse with the appearance of Tay Tawan. Also, Talay and Tun FINALLY have their first Kiss – and not just a little face smoosh kiss either! This was a REAL, opened mouth, insert the tongue kind of a kiss. It was awesome! Also, did anyone notice the video glitches? I don’t think GMMTV would have uploaded it if it wasn’t a part of the story so I am curious about what happens next.
TAKARA-KUN & AMAGI-KUN – EPISODE 3
In this week’s episode, Amagi is nervous about having to stay with his mother (with whom is not close) while his grandparents (who have been raising him) go out of town. To save him, Takara invites his innocently sweet (albeit naïve boyfriend) to stay with him instead. Realizing that they’re going to be alone, thoughts of intimacy start to plague both of their minds as well as first-time jitters. It’s awkward and comedic but also very sweet. Realizing that Amagi isn’t ready, Takara steps back. Taking a moment to relieve himself, he decides to spend the night downstairs, away from him so neither one of them would be tempted. To keep himself from kicking down the door and ravaging Amagi, Takara calls a friend. It’s a fun episode and I am excited to see where it goes.
WAR OF Y – EPISODE 5 – MUST SURVIVE
Well, the first Arc of this “Behind-The-Scenes look at the BL world has come to an end. In the end, everything was made right between Pan and Nott and Koon finally does (sort of) get her comeuppance as do a few of the other characters. However, I’m not sure if I’m going to keep up with it. Perhaps I will binge-watch it once it’s done.
LOVE IN THE AIR – EPISODE 3
Rain recruits Sky to help him figure out a way to make Phayu fall in love with him. However, it’s clear that Rain has already fallen for Phayu, which means he’s already lost his own game – he’s just the only one who hasn’t realized it yet. There’s a moment where Rain’s world starts to unravel and Phayu, in a moment to prove that his feelings for his junior are real, rushes to support him. It’s a sweet and simple, but very powerful moment. Their relationship is moving fast (but not too fast) and it’s just a really well-rounded show with quick-witted writing, wonderful actors, and decent production value. I’m loving it.
180 DEGREE LONGITUDE PASSES THROUGH US
This series is a slow-sizzling story that I just know is going to be burning hot any moment. The series stars Pond Ponlawit as Wang, the son of a popular director Sasiwimol (Mam Kathaleeya), who, while accompanying his mother on a scouting trip meets In (Nike Nitidon) a college friend of his parents. While Wang and his mother have a tumultuous relationship, it’s clear, even in episode three that Wang and In are slowly starting to fall for one another.
As mentioned, the series isn’t the fastest moving, and while oftentimes that starts to grate on me, with this one I like it. These are very deep and complex characters and the fact that it’s mainly just the three of them in a beautiful house, it’s so well written, directed, and acted – that I really hope it gets a blu ray release because I seriously want to buy it.
