Also referred to as Yaoi, BL (Boys’ Love) is a relatively new type of media that depicts the romance between two male characters. It was first emerged in Japan in the form of manga at the end of the 1970s and later expand to other media, including anime, novels, films, and television dramas.
In recent years, BL series has gained global attention, especially with more and more high-quality Boys’ Love content been produced by Thailand, China, Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries. If you are interested in BL series but don’t know where to watch BL series online free, this article can help. I have listed all my frequented BL drama websites in the next part. Let’s get started!
YouTube is the go-to place for all viewing needs, and it is hands down the best place to find a variety of BL series to watch legally. For instance, you can watch the highly-praised Thai BL series Dark Blue Kiss and 2gether The Series, and also the amazing Chinese BL dramas Addicted and The Untamed with English subtitles in the official TV channels GMMTV and WeTV, completely for free. The two channels also upload many other BL series worth watching. But if you want to explore BL series from other countries like Philippines and Vietnam, you are most likely to get what you want because YouTube hosts BL drama from all over the world. Just search your desired BL drama by name, and there you go.
Viki has some good BL series from Mainland China, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, and South Korea. The best thing about watching BL dramas on Viki is that you can have multiple language subtitles to option besides English, thus satisfying fans worldwide. Popular BL dramas on Viki include Addicted, Guardian, The Untamed, Because of You, Dark Blue and Moonlight, HIStory the Series, Love by Chance, Life~Love On the Line, His - I Didn't Think I Would Fall in Love,and Where Your Eyes Linger. Yet, it will require an extra effort to dig out these contents as Viki does not have a ready category for BL content. Another thing worth noting is that most contents on Viki are only available within the US, and some series are licensed to certain regions as well.
As a serious rival to YouTube, Dailymotion is another good site to watch BL drama online free. You can find on Dailymotion a lot of Asian BL series for free streaming. Some of these BL dramas are provided by official channels like GMMTV, but many others are uploaded by unofficial channels like BL Series HD (uploads BL dramas every day), and you are hence more likely to explore more BL series easily. The video quality and subtitles are, however, much weaker than YouTube.
If you are looking for BL dramas on novel subjects, then don’t sleep on GagaOOLala. GagaOOLala is a Taiwan-based streaming platform that focuses on LGBTQ+ content. And in addition to licensed BL contents, GagaOOLala also creates original productions itself. Recommended BL dramas on GagaOOLala are Dark Blue and Moonlight, Red Balloon, Papa & Daddy, and Because of You. Apart from BL dramas, GagaOOLala will also feed you with a good selection of Yaoi movies and gay films. But note one thing that not all of the contents on GagaOOLala are free. As a matter of fact, only a small portion of the content is for free streaming, and you’ll also need to register to access the content.
