Pinoy BL dramas are fast broadening the BL genre into variations on a theme. While Thai Dramas seem to be stuck to the age-old concept of school romance between Engineering or Medical Faculty students, the Filipinos are more inclined to produce BL content with twists and turns. Adding the required gourmet flair to the search of a perfect BL drama is Unframed Film Production’s upcoming drama series “Better Days.” Teasing your taste buds with perfect gastronomic experience coupled with a romance between two of the most handsome vloggers, Better Days promises a “Change from the Norm.”
