This is a surprisingly entertaining series and not what I was expecting. Literally, it captured me with its portrayal.
Honestly, it is hard for me to be objective about Vietnamese BL’s. There is something so organic and raw about them that they have become incredibly endearing to me. And these two short series live up to that standard as well. It is simply a joy to watch and experience. It is obviously a low-budget production with some sound and technical issues; but what it lacks in quality, it makes up for it with intense efforts on the part of the actors and actresses. It is truly and honestly a labor of love. You can see their complete commitment to this series.
IT’S BEEN A YEAR!!!
This series utterly confounded me. I did not understand it – initially. The story was choppy, incoherent at times, and made little sense to my western-oriented mind. Frankly, I did not understand the fairy-tale related title and what it had to do with the series. Humbly, I want to explain my bewilderment of this series from two vastly different perspectives.
This short movie is simply astonishing. It starts out as another gourmet themed BL series which seems to be the latest trend in Boys’ Love as opposed to college settings. The story line is not necessarily unique but because of great character development, excellent acting, and an immersed story, this movie has become an early favorite of mine in 2022.
This is an astonishingly beautiful film. It is a classic tale of “Coming Out” to a family, for which the whole concept of gayness is either suppressed, ignored, or unthinkable.
It seems like yesterday when I started this website and it has been nine months already. We crossed the “One Hundred Thousand” milestone in August and in two months, we are two Hundred Thousand strong!
Unique is not quite the right word to describe this series, including its title. Flippant comes to mind, but still alluring.
This is a BL series that defies description. To say that it is phenomenal would be an understatement.
This series is simply dazzling and a pure work of effulgence. It is breathtakingly beautiful and a stunning assemblage of artistry. It comes close to being a visual masterpiece with its juxtaposition of ancient and modern settings.
