There’s no denying that the Boys Love culture hit its stride in 2020, with many productions from both big and small studios in Thailand enjoying widespread viewership and popularity. 2gether: The Series is a prime example. The show continues to receive acclaim for bringing the unconventional concept of modern love between two male teenagers to the mainstream while subtly challenging the heteronormative customs in Thai society.

It doesn’t seem like the hype about Boys Love will be wearing out anytime soon. This year,  fans can expect to blush and shed a tear or two to a new selection of boy-meets-boy series set to debut this year. Here’s a list of what to expect later this year.

And don't forget to see the currently on-air Boys Love shows from this link.
