For those unfamiliar with Boys’ Love or BL for short, is simply a genre of television shows and films centered on gay love. While manga and anime helped to popularize the genre in Japan, it has now spread to other Asian countries such as Thailand, China, and Korea. The normalization of male-male couples has prompted more common discussions about LGBTQ+ problems and increased activism for their rights.
The boy love trope (BL) is here to stay, and if you enjoy it, here’s a list of must-watch BL K-dramas.
1. Behind the Cut
Ki Jin is a budding fashion design student with great dreams: he wants to be a world-famous fashion designer, but he’s having trouble figuring out where to start. On the street one day, he meets Yeong Woo, an ever-optimistic part-time delivery worker. Yeong Woo does not have a passion.
Despite the fact that Ki Jin and Yeong Woo have had a rocky start, they begin to develop feelings for one another. Things become tricky when a leading model named Lee Bin enters the picture. He begins to have feelings for Ki Jin. Could this turn of events mean the end of Ki Jin and Yeong Woo’s budding romance?
2. Cherry Blossoms After Winter
Following the death of his parents, a seven-year-old boy named Seo Hae Bom is forced to move in with a foster family that has a little son of the same age named Jo Tae Seong. Seo Hae Bom is awestruck by Jo Tae Seong, believing the boy to be all that he is not. The little Seo Hae Bom considers himself to be inadequate and is humbled by the goodwill of the family who took him in.
Seo Hae Bom and Jo Tae Seong eventually end up in the same high school class. They are now spending more time together than ever before at home and at school. A surprising romantic spark blooms between the two – but what will Venus have to say about it all?
3. Semantic Error
Chu Sang Woo is a junior computer science major who is extremely serious about his academic performance. He is assigned to work on a group project for the liberal arts as part of his university work, and the group is obliged to deliver a final presentation in order to pass the module. However, when the rest of the people with whom he is paired leave him to do all of the work, he chooses to erase their names and make the presentation in his own name.
But he had no idea that by doing so, he would have to cope with a senior student named Jang Jae Young. Chu Sang Woo’s polar opposite is the latter, a design major. He is fashionable and quite popular. But when he loses credit for the liberal arts project, his lofty ambitions to study abroad are severely disrupted. He searches Chu Sang Woo out and intends to punish him. When the pair are compelled to work together, a weird attraction develops between them…
4. You Make Me Dance
Song Shi On is a university student pursuing a degree in contemporary dance. He was booted out of the family home after a major argument, leaving him with an emotional wound. He decides to follow his dream and winds up living on a rooftop with Jin Hong Seok. This cold but observant man works as a debt collector for Chachacha Capital and has given up his dream of becoming a pianist.
As the couple becomes closer, CEO Cha Soo Ryeon’s adoration and senior student Jung Hun’s jealously threaten to wreck their budding love tale.
5. Oh! Boarding House
Sul Won is a young unemployed man whose mother manages a low-cost boarding house for students and men who cannot afford to buy or rent an apartment on their own. However, when his mother unexpectedly travels on vacation, she leaves Sul Won in charge of the boarding home, therefore making him the de facto live-in landlord. The boarding house’s residents are a diverse group. One of them is a high school senior who is also Sul Won’s cousin. There’s also Kim Chun Seo, a high school teacher, and Sul Won’s former college friend. A third-year university student with aspirations of becoming a writer rounds out the group. As the young men spend more time together, they form a strong bond. But Sul Won, soon realizes that some of the tenants have developed feelings for him….
6. Color Rush
Monochromatic individuals (also known as Monos) live in a world where they cannot see colors and must consequently perceive their surroundings in varied shades of grey, black, and white. Every Mono, on the other hand, has a fated person (known as Probe) who can turn their grey-scale environment into color.
Yeon Woo is a Mono who has never seen or experienced colors for himself and has no desire to do so. However, when Yeon Woo meets Yoo Han, his Probe, and experiences his first ‘Colour Rush,’ his life is permanently changed. Yeon Woo tries to avoid Yoo Han because he is afraid of becoming obsessed with him because of Yoo Han’s ability to make him see colors. Will his strategy work?
