Upcoming BLs To Watch in August 2023 | TheReviewGeek Recommends

August is finally here and that means we are in for new BL shows from all over the world.

For the past few months, most BLs have failed to deliver great storylines and acting. Especially, Thai BLs, as it seems they have dropped the ball while Korean BLs have taken over.

Hopefully, this month, we will be blessed with great shows that will keep us glued to our TVs. With that said, let us take a look at the BLs coming our way this month.
