BL fans in Thailand rejoice! Kadokawa is teaming up with Kadokawa Amarin, Hub of Harmony Entertainment and Hollywood Thailand for a new Thai live-action adaptation of Taishi Zaou and Eiki Eiki’s Love Stage!! boys-love manga. This new adaptation will be a series, though they did not yet reveal any further details.

This would be the second time the yaoi manga received a live-action adaptation. Of course, the first one is the Japanese movie starring Mahiro Sugiyama as Izumi Sena and Hiroki Nakada as Ryouma Ichijou.

The manga previously received a TV anime adaptation back in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed it in the west, and here’s how they describe its story:

Izumi was born in a family of celebrities. His father is a singer, his mother an artist, his older brother the lead vocalist for the popular band Crashers. Izumi himself, however, is just a nerdy college student. He loves the manga “Magical Girl Lala Lulu” and dreams of becoming a manga writer himself. One day he is roped into filming a commercial where he wears a dress. Another actor on the set, Ryoma Ichijo, mistakes him for a woman and falls in love at first sight. As it turns out, though, they met ten years in the past. And Ryoma feelings don’t change when he finds out Izumi is a boy.

Expect the staff to reveal more details about the new Thai live-action series in the days to come.
