Seven Seas Licenses KINNPORSCHE Thai Boys’ Love Novel Series

Posted on February 21st, 2024

Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the license acquisition of KinnPorsche, the Thai-language Boys’ Love novel series by Daemi. In this action-packed romance—which inspired a hit live-action drama—a hot-tempered college student is sucked into the criminal underworld after a chance encounter with the heir to a crime family.

Ever since the tragic death of his parents, Porsche’s life has been a balancing act between attending college and bartending to support his younger brother and pay off his deadbeat uncle’s gambling debt. When he witnesses a gang of thugs attacking a handsome young man in the alley behind his bar, he’s reluctant to intervene—until he’s offered fifty thousand baht to help the stranger escape.

The stranger is known as Kinn, the second son of a notorious crime family. Impressed with Porsche’s fighting skills, Kinn hatches a devious plan: hire Porsche to be his own personal bodyguard and he’ll pay off his debt. Porsche doesn’t want any trouble, especially not the kind of trouble Kinn deals in. But Kinn always gets what he wants.

The KinnPorsche novel series inspired the wildly popular and internationally acclaimed live-action drama, KinnPorsche: The Series, which Teen Vogue called “a thrilling, lush and gargantuan tale of love and sin” (2022). Seven Seas will be releasing the first-ever English edition of the original novels with new internal illustrations, in a format similar to the bestselling Chinese-language novels in the Seven Seas Danmei label.

KinnPorsche (Novel) Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in the English language in September 2024 for $19.99 USA / $25.99 CAN, with the series available in large-trim paperback editions as part of the Seven Seas BL label (Boys’ Love titles). Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms. Paperback preorders are available now.
