Need some boy love Korean dramas? These are the best ones to watch
If you’re looking for some dramas to add to your watchlist, and if you’re especially looking for some Korean boy love dramas to add to your watchlist, then look no further. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best Korean boy love dramas, so you can spend less time searching for suggestions and more time getting right to watching.
We did our very best to focus on Korean dramas which have boy love as the main plot and not the ‘B’ plot, however, finding dramas that do more than hint at chemistry is sadly not the world’s easiest task. To remedy this we included both shows and movies – here are all the best options we can find.
Long Time No See
This 2017 series has only five episodes, which is a bit of a bummer since the premise is fun. Two hitmen end up falling in love with one another, however, neither knows the identity of the other. This, of course, leads to drama in their relationship as well as in their work.
This movie is about Won-gyu. He returns to Seoul after two years – he had left after being assaulted. When Won-gyu returns he meets Tae-jun and they’re able to share an important night together in the same place Won-gyu had been hurt two years before.
The movie is an hour and fifteen minutes, and has a rating of 7.2 on the website MyDramaList. The movie was originally released in 2012.
The story of this movie is about Su-min, who grew up in an orphanage. He goes to Seoul to study design, but eventually after some difficulties ends up working as a stripper in a gay bar.

Where Your Eyes Linger
This eight-episode series is currently in the process of airing. It began on May 22nd, and will continue until June 12th. The story is about Han Tae Joo, a rich eighteen year old who also happens to have a bodyguard his age. The two have been close for a very long time, however, when the bodyguard goes on a date with a girl, Han finds himself feeling jealous.
The episodes in this series are short – about ten to twelve minutes each, but they can be watching on the streaming platform, Viki. So our suggestion would be to wait until all the episodes are released and you can binge them all in one sitting.

This is the lowest rated suggestion on our list with a 6.6 out of 10 rating. It was originally released in 2011, and is two hours and one minute long.
