Upcoming BLs To Watch in June 2023 | TheReviewGeek Recommends

June is Pride month and we are always looking forward to the queer content on our TV screens, with this month looking like it’s going to pick up from the BL drought and finally pick things back up again. This month we have 4 shows and 1 extra-special movie set to premier but sadly that means we will be saying goodbye to some of our favourite shows like Our Sky 2 and Naked Dining. With that said, let us take a look at the BLs coming our way this month.

Love Tractor

Network:  iQIYI in select territories

Premiere date:  June 7th 2023

This is one of the most anticipated Korean Bl of the year. The eight-episode drama is adapted from the webtoon Love Tractor written by Hmm Yong Yong and illustrated by AngryMonster. Here we meet Hyeon Yul who is going through a lot and decides to visit his grandfather’s rural home. Yul is a city man and has no clue how to survive in the rural town. He soon meets

Ye Chan is a man full of passion for farming and is willing to teach Yul all about rural life and farming tasks. Slowly but surely, they start getting close and feelings begin to blossom between them.

Shigatsu no Tokyo wa…/ Tokyo in April

Network: MBS

Premiere date: June 16th, 2023 

This is a Japanese drama that follows the story of Kazuma who returns from America after 10 years. He reunites with his best friend from middle school, Ren. Ren is also his first love and they had an abrupt farewell during their third year in middle school.

Upon his return, Ren avoids talking about what happened in their third year. They resume their friendship and try to ignore their feelings but one night, they have a moment of weakness and this leads them to reflect harder on what they truly feel for each other.

Tie the Not

Network: YouTube Channel of Oxin Films

Premiere date: June 24th, 2023 

This is a Philippines drama that tells us the beautiful love story of Briggs and Shao. For most of his life, Briggs has never found love because he is always working at their bridal car business. One fateful day, he meets Shao who is about to marry a man named Louise because of an arranged marriage. Thus begins a deeply amazing story of true acceptance and why true love is worth fighting for.

What is even more intriguing is that the drama is inspired by a true story. We can’t wait to watch this one!

Dinosaur Love

Network: Amarin TV 34

Premiere date:  June 25th, 2023 

This is a short Thai drama that will only have 5 episodes. Rak is a cute university student who finds out that his boyfriend is cheating on him. To make the betrayal worse, he is cheating on him with his best friend. Obviously, such deep betrayal shakes Rak’s heart but bad boy Dino is willing to help heal his wounds.

Dino uses this opportunity to win Rak’s heart and make him open up to him. The plot is interesting and we hope the story will be well-told since the show only has 5 episodes.

Special mention: Let’s Eat Together, Aki and Haru

Network: Cinemart Shinjuku and other local cinemas in Tokyo

Premiere date:  June 2nd

This is a Japanese film adapted from the manga series Aki wa Haru to Gohan wo Tabetai”  by Tajima Makoto. The show tells the story of two roommates Aki and Haru who have different tastes and outlooks on many things in life. They are, however, bonded by their love for food. Food has been known to bring people together, how will Aki and Haru’s story unfold? I guess we will have to tune in and see. We will let you know when it will be available internationally.
