In recent years, Boys’ Love fever has exploded, particularly across Asia. One of the countries leading the charge in the production of the BL series is Thailand, which has churned out a lot of great BLs.With how many Thai BLs have been released, and with a lot more on the way to grace our screens soon, it might be difficult to choose a starting point.

Before we name the first entry on the list, let’s go over a few criteria to make the list. These are some popular series that have been tried and tested when it comes to attracting lots of fans.
