Boys' Love (BL) dramas have had loyal followers for several years now, but it was only in 2020specifically when the world went on lockdownthat they became a wildly popular phenomenon. Jezah, 23, is a Filipina living in Bangkok, Thailand and considers herself a BL fan who's a "product of the pandemic." She's only been a fan for six months but already stans a slew of BL drama couples: TayNew, KristSingto, OffGun, BrightWin, MeanPlan, PerthSaint, and BounPrem. But the Top 1 couple in her heart is none other than BrightWin of the mega-hit BL drama, 2gether: The Series. "They gave us the phenomenal series of 2020," Jezah says of her faves.
