Popular BL culture, like most other genres, closely follows the same set of tropes that, though repetitive, are indeed endearing.
This series is one of my favorite “Friends to Lovers” tropes. Ben (Teejay Marquez) and Jim (Jerome Ponce) have been friends since they were little. Circumstances separated them and years later Ben sees Jim on social media. Once they reconnect their story is unique and heartwarming.
