The Boys’ Love (BL) genre isn’t new to fictional media, but it has seen an increase in popularity in 2020, partly due to the new Thai BL drama 2gether: The Series starring actors Vachirawit Chiva-aree and Metawin Opas-iamkajorn. For Filipino fans, it’s also likely that we’re getting our own series revolving around the genre eventually, thanks to writer Juan Miguel Severo.
Well, it seems that a new BL drama is also heading to the screens of South Korea! Korean entertainment website Soompi reports that a Boys’ Love web drama called Where Your Eyes Linger is in the works. The drama is about two 18-year-olds—Tae Joo, a chaebol heir, and Gook, his bodyguard and friend.
The report also adds that the drama will star Han Gi Chan as Tae Joo and Jang Eui Su as Gook. Han Gi Chan was an ex-contestant on Produce X 101, a survival reality show for aspiring idols, while Jang Eui Su is an actor who’s also appeared on popular dramas like He Is Psychometric and Memorist.
Han Gi Chan’s agency, Fantagio, also announced the news of his casting on Twitter.
For international viewers, Where Your Eyes Linger will be available on the streaming website Viki beginning on May 22.
