With Korean BLs on the rise, March saw an unprecedented increase in the number of BL dramas. “Our Dating Sim”, “A Shoulder to Cry On” and “Unintentional Love Story” are dominating the current scenario with their niche storytelling and phenomenal casting. On the other hand, Thai BLs have been on a slow wind; the recent disappointment being the highly anticipated drama “Make a Wish”. The show’s international premiere is still uncertain and, as such, it has left avid fans teetering on the edge. That being said, April will see the advent of some exciting shows, so let’s check out the roster!

Their relationship is one of dominance and submission before a tragic accident that almost costs Day his life. I don’t mean the BDSM version of dominance/submission. But one where Day controls Itt’s actions through reward and punishment. The reward being a whole piece of cake, the punishment being physical/emotional abuse. If any of this is triggering to you, stop now.
