You need to upgrade your GagaOOLala account to watch. Viki is also streaming the series. However, access depends on the region you are located in, but you may use a VPN service. It’s highly recommended to use a VPN especially when watching BL series. There are streaming sites like NetFlix, Viki, GagaOOLala, iQIYI, Hulu, Viu, and many others that may limit broadcast reach due to copyright and other legal stuff. A VPN is safe, reliable, and legal.
Seon Ho (Song Seung Hyun), a clumsy cartoonist who draws adult material, selects Mu-young (Ko Chan Bin), a youngster with excellent skills and quite handsome, to work with. However, Moo-young has a rough personality and tends to take everything with a confrontational tone. Then one day, he asks Moo-young to pose for an adult-themed scene. But when he sees Moo-young in an erotic pose, Seon-ho feels strange… Yet, little did he know Moo-young is his numero uno fanatic! [Synopsis © Psycho-Weird]

We highly recommend PsychoWeird’s essential Korean BL hitlist.
We’re also looking forward to such new series as Eccentric Romance, Star Struck, and A Shoulder to Cry On.
An old-timer BL fan way back in 2007. I started out loving BL after watching the Takumi-kun series from Japan, went on collecting BL manga, and watched old BL anime such as Junjou Romantica and the likes. Love of Siam allow me to transition into Thai, while Amphetamine gave me glimpses of Taiwanese BL magic. I love to write reviews and I’m one of the administrators of Psycho Weird.
This looks good but there are many things I can not get here, although I have a VPN and that is because I must get a paid subscription. I can only get so many of those.
I think the reason GMM actors are becoming worldwide stars is they make almost everything available on YouTube or other streaming platforms. Of course there are so many things to see on iQIYI, WeTV and YouTube I am not sure I have the time to add more anyway.
Yes, I was browsing plenty of BL streaming sites but they are not YT, so I was wondering if American audiences can watch BL series other than GMMTV productions. Apparently, you can’t. That’s too bad. It lessens the impact and how these actors get to be known outside Asia-Pacific.
I have a VPN so I can watch select shows on WeTV and other sites. Many of the titles require a subscription. I subscribed to iQIYI to watch Kinn Porsche. It was OK but the story was all over the place. I did not love it as much as other people did. I saw Check Out.It was as bad as everyone had said. I started watching Love In The Air but it is another where you can not understand the attraction.
Yes, for most people here, if it is not on YouTube, they will not see it. I think it is clever to put it there. Would Bad Buddy be the worldwide success without the availability? By the way, I think GMM missed the boat on the BBS repeats. The DVDs were sold out right away and were out of stock long before the reruns. In fact, no BBS merchandise is available. There is a fandom that would buy up anything, and did!
