In our previous list, we emphasize production values. In this next feature, we focus on three Korean BL in various states of production: Hee Su in Class 2, StarStruck, and A Shoulder To Cry On.

The controversy continues with the boys planning for legal action. Hopefully, the new series will push thru and with such an interesting storyline, one can’t help but anticipate.
