Thailand is betting on a dramatic ‘boy love’ tourism boom http://cakemaker.org.uk/thailand-is-betting-on-a-dramatic-boy-love-tourism-boom/ Wed, 29 Jun 2022 04:16:16 +0000 http://cakemaker.org.uk/thailand-is-betting-on-a-dramatic-boy-love-tourism-boom/

Thailand has launched a campaign to attract international tourists, and particularly Japanese travellers, using the popularity of local productions of “boy love”, or BL dramas, as a draw card.

During the “Mini Thai Festival” held in Osaka in early June, two stalls were set up by video distributors in the “Thai BL” corner, attracting crowds of people away from street food stalls and an exhibition of the combat sport Muay Thai. The Tourism Authority of Thailand, or TAT, has distributed brochures about Thai BL.

Known in Thailand as “Y series” – a reference to Japanese “yaoi” fiction which features homoerotic relationships between male characters and inspired BL dramas – the productions were once viewed with prejudice but have been accepted due of their potential to function as a cultural export.

“My heart races when I see these scenes of handsome actors falling in love with each other,” said Keiko Kobayashi, 58, who works in Osaka and met friends to drink Thai beer at the festival. .

She became a fan of the genre about a year ago. Because of the Thai BL dramas, “I started to learn more about Thailand, which previously didn’t interest me,” she said.

The Thai BL boom took off in Japan about two years ago through word of mouth, with major works creating buzz on social media. Maya Murai, 30, who works for the TAT Osaka branch, recognized the tourism potential and opened the office’s Thai BL Twitter account, which now has more than 20,000 followers.

She saw the opportunity to promote tours to Thailand after discovering that 80% of Japanese Thai BL fans had never been to the Southeast Asian country.

Thailand lifted post-entry quarantine requirements and most other COVID-19 restrictions on travelers to the country from June.

When TAT’s Osaka office solicited eight participants for a trial tour, partially paid for by the office, to BL theater sites in Thailand in early June, slots were immediately taken – a limited but encouraging indication of the interest of Japanese tourists for a holiday structured around Thai BL.

Chanyuth Sawetsuwan, 51, the bureau chief, said the boom seen in Japan has also spread to other Asian countries and South America, prompting the Thai government to start positioning BL dramas in as strategic content to promote tourism.

Murai, who is also a fan of Thai BL, said, “I sometimes feel jealous of actresses when I watch love stories between men and women. But a lot of women are attracted to BL dramas because they can just supporting beautiful men.”

Indeed, the candid emotional subject matter and smiles seen in Thai BL dramas seem to have captured the hearts of many Japanese fans.

“In the 1980s, BL’s work was in Japan rather than Thailand,” said Rujirat Ishikawa, a 38-year-old Thai assistant professor at Aoyama Gakuin University who specializes in Japanese manga culture. Fan clubs for Japanese BL works were formed in Thailand in the 1990s.

But explicit sexual descriptions in self-published works became an issue leading to Thai government intervention, and BL became taboo in the early 2000s.

A scene of two men kissing in a 2007 Thai film prompted a torrent of criticism, Ishikawa said. Around the same time, however, some people began to accept homosexuality more in Thai society. “Thai society has changed, paving the way for a series of Thai BL drama productions,” she said.

BL dramas feature scenes in which boys come out to family members or show similar acts of courage, giving viewers a sense of their internal struggles, Ishikawa said.

Thai BL dramas often end with happy endings, according to Ishikawa, creating “positive feelings to eliminate biased opinions against sexual minorities”.

Cleveland police dispatch took half an hour to dispatch officers to girl’s fatal hit-and-run

Apolina Asumani

1) When a getaway driver killed 5-year-old Apolina Asumani in April, Cleveland police officers arrived on West 50th Street only 33 minutes after someone called for help. An ambulance arrived just five minutes after the girl was shot. Why? A Fox 8 I-Team report reveals what happened:

  • A dispatcher could not find an available patrol car to respond. Two nearby patrol cars were on cases at a local hospital. Others were at a domestic violence call, a burglary and a fire. Still others were working on a traffic hazard, illegal dumps and foot patrols.
  • An internal police review found that dispatchers miscoded the call and should have taken more action to redirect officers to the scene of the hit-and-run.

2) Deshaun Watson’s disciplinary hearing for violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy will begin on Tuesday. Sources told the Wall St. Journal that the league wants to impose an indefinite suspension on Watson, citing five of 24 cases with overwhelming evidence against him. He should seek reinstatement. The players’ union is ready to fight any extended suspension, citing past instances of lenient discipline for misbehaving owners.

How the Offer Makes the Sponsor Better http://cakemaker.org.uk/how-the-offer-makes-the-sponsor-better/ Sat, 25 Jun 2022 13:02:44 +0000 http://cakemaker.org.uk/how-the-offer-makes-the-sponsor-better/

The following contains spoilers for The offernow streaming on Paramount+.

The Godfather is always in the conversation when it comes to the best movies of all time. However, The offer on Paramount+ will further enhance viewers’ enjoyment of the film. The limited series follows the making of this iconic film, featuring dramatic portrayals of real-life characters like Francis Ford Coppola, Mario Puzo, and famed Hollywood producer Robert Evans.

While most people accept that The Godfather is a well-made movie, it’s not a universally loved story. Some Italian Americans sincerely believe that “mob stories” perpetuate harmful stereotypes. Others believe that the mythical nature of the film elevates the cowardly criminals to a status of honor and respect that does not adequately reflect reality. The offer explores these same questions. Although produced by Paramount, which is itself a kind of “character” in the series, The offer does not gloss over some ugly truths behind the making of the film. For example, producer Albert S. Ruddy became real friends with mobster Joe Colombo…even though Colombo was a vicious killer.


Ruddy, played by Miles Teller – who is currently enjoying the success of Top Gun: Maverick – is shown ahead of winning Colombo, played gloriously by Giovanni Ribisi. Colombo is an interesting figure in gangster history, who ended up sparing the lives of mob bosses to rise to the top of his family. He also launched the Italian-American Civil Rights League, which initially protested The Godfather but, through the friendship he developed with Ruddy, he came to openly support the film. Ruddy held a special screening for the gangsters and their families ahead of the film’s premiere, which is discussed in The offer when Juno Temple’s Betty McCartt steals the movie from the lot to have it flown to New York without the studio’s blessing.


RELATED: The Offer’s First Trailer Sets Up The Godfather’s Epic Creation Story

The Godfather tells the story of the mob in an America that was not as welcoming to its immigrants as promised. Dan Fogler (better known as Jacob Kowalski from the hole-laden plot Fantastic Beasts 3) plays Francis Coppola and explains how The Godfather is “about capitalism”. The offer exposes not only the issues the production faced with the mob, but also the issues they faced with attorneys for Paramount’s parent company, Gulf & Western. Colin Hanks plays Barry Lapidus, an amalgamation of everyone who was opposed to taking the risk of making the movie. Because at the time, The Godfather was a big risk.


Matthew Goode plays a Robert Evans who has viewers yearning for a second season just to get more Kid Notorious. Under his leadership, Paramount went from being the lowest-paying studio to the most profitable in just a few years. Evans was an executive who cared about the art of cinema, believing that quality would translate into box office success. The struggles between him, Ruddy, and Gulf & Western make up the majority of the tension and drama in The offer. Someone watching this show might find themselves hoping for the movie to get made. It’s easy to forget that this is a dramatization of film history, because The offer does such a great job with its story and characters – even though it’s not a documentary.


The offer takes some liberties with the facts to tell his story. In the finale, Ruddy’s encounter with a young man mirrors how he got his job at Paramount. While the character of the young man is fictional, the scene is a cinematic depiction of how Ruddy later mentored other young producers. Dates and times don’t always line up perfectly because things are juxtaposed for drama. And the perspective of the series is almost entirely Ruddy’s. For example, Evans claims that he defended the longest cut in the film, while The offer shows that it was all filmmakers against the fictional character of Lapidus.


RELATED: Why Frank Sinatra’s Daughters Sent Ray Liotta A Horse’s Head

But The offer contains all the hits of Godfather traditions. Fans can see the camera test Marlon Brando did to become Vito Corleone. The series depicts how the filmmakers got the real horse’s head for the iconic scene (as earlier in the series, Evans finds a bloody rat left in his bed). It dramatizes how the Colombo men rocked the production and how these vicious men forced their way into the hearts of the producers. The offerThe story of the making of this film mirrors the story told in The Godfatherbut no one the audience cares about dies on the show.

what people think The Godfather is a classic or overrated dreck who worships criminals and perpetuates stereotypes, there’s something about it The offer to like. It tells how a group of strange artists came together to make the greatest film of its time. Watch this series reframe The Godfather as a project that had everything against it and which succeeded where it should not have. It paints the making of a film as an act of revolution – and it’s more than worth watching on repeat now that it’s finished.

The offer and sponsor are currently available on Paramount+.
