Mesmerizing is the word that comes to my mind when I recall some of my favorite BL dramas. It has got nothing to do with the storytelling or execution and everything to do with the “Setting/Location”. A drama’s success cannot be solely ascribed to its cast or interesting storyline. The overall look depends on the adjoining location that adds the requisite oomph factor needed to drive the narrative forward. Join us as we talk about our favorite locales in the BL dreamland!
While cinematography and appropriate casting form the backbone to a drama’s success, another important factor that weighs in- is the location/setting. An entire team is involved in checking out the locales suitable to the script to building magnanimous sets that match the show’s era. In today’s feature, our authors will be taking about their favorite cinematic “Location/Setting”.
The ability to move hearts inarguably depends on the artistic skills of an actor; more so, if you are a BL actor, specifically because the genre is often misjudged on the basis of its sensual content. Most actors put in a lot of efforts- to emote, express and deliver the feelings evoked by their character roles. “The Top Ten Actors” on this list have earned their right because their tenacity and dedication have left a deep impression on our body and soul. Join us, in this final feature, as we bid adieu to 2022.
Emotional, high-quality productions are in demand, and nowhere is this more obvious than in the results of BL Xpress’s 2022 “Top BL Dramas”.
“Giving voice to characters that have no other voice—that’s the great worth of what we do.” — Meryl Streep
The reckoning number of BL dramas released in 2022 was overwhelmingly varietal.
It has been an interesting year, with a surprising surge of BL dramas, that were both contemplative and riveting.
The Thai drama 180 Degree Longitude Passes Through Us has ended, and it has taken my heart with it. When a series strikes a chord within me, I am very vocal about it, writing multiple pieces hoping others will take the time to discover the magic. 180 Degree Longitude is one of those series, but for the final review, I will simply focus on the people in it, the connection between them, and why these connections touched me.
From beginning to end, I fell in love with the Thai drama 180 Degree Longitude Passes Through Us and everything it represents, especially the focus on politics and the lines dividing generations. The acting, symbolism, and artistic nuances are nothing short of brilliant.
