So, in my continuing journey to watch more BL dramas out there, I recently watched the Dark Blue and Moonlight from Taiwan. I thought I’d share my views on it in this mini-review.
I think I am liking Taiwanese BL dramas the best thus far, although some Thai BL dramas are a close second. They are both generous with their kissing, but story wise, the only Thai dramas I’ve seen are coming of age/falling in love series, so those seem a bit juvenile to me. There might be other more mature Thai BL out there, but I haven’t looked into it too deeply and I always need my dramas to have a happy ending, so there is that added limitation. Chinese dramas are still censoring the L part of BL, leading us to lackluster bromances that leave most fans disappointed (Advanced Bravely anyone?).
Other reviews to follow. 🙂
