Creating a top favorites list has always been hard for me. How I feel about a drama depends mainly on my mood when watching. So, I generally hesitate to number my lists. Therefore, to put together my top ten favorite Korean BLs from 2020-2022, I revisited my Twitter posts, taking note of the ones that left me reeling enough to spill my feelings into the Twitterverse. Considering the amount of BLs South Korea released over the last few years, narrowing them down was no easy task, but certainly a lot of fun to revisit.

The first thing I think of when I see South Korea mentioned is phenomenal, emotional storytelling. From their dramas to their movies to their music, South Korean artists, writers, musicians, and producers have a way of painting a colorful, well-developed picture that draws their audiences in.
