Music has an extraordinary kind of magic. When the K-pop idol group OnlyOneOf (온리원오브) started their Underground Idol project in the summer of 2022, they created (what I believe to be) the first BL music video series be. The six-video series started with “begin” on 27 June 2022, with each subsequent video being released once a month, concluding with “beyOnd” on 4 January 2023.

“Sparks Camp” First Impressions (Ep.1 & 2)
While looks can be discerning, reality shows aren’t exactly the best judge of character; especially dating shows that could be farce or scripted. Reality shows have always existed in the broader sense and these days they are being inculcated into the Boys’ Love diaspora. Makes us question the belief of “How a fictional genre could incorporate a dating show which is undeniably being marketed as realistic?”. We could keep arguing about the technicalities, but it doesn’t change the fact that BL sells and nestling these shows under the hugely popular genre helps in promotions and marketing. So, when the Korean launched their very own version of dating shows like “His Man” and “Merry Queer”, they were applauded for their efforts. The format was new, and the contestants were intriguing. They had a story to share, each of them. While “His Man” was intentionally gay oriented, “Merry Queer” was blissfully more aligned with the queer community because of its diversified selection of contestants. Both shows ended on a positive response; although “His Man” did court controversy later. Hong Kong’s “Boyscation” wasn’t much appreciated, but it did open the floodgates for future remakes.

Songkhram has always been Dormitory 2’s bulwark of strength due to his extraordinary athletic prowess. His encounter with Ai, a rival who matches him in both charm and competitiveness, however, upends his entire universe.
