If there is one thing that everyone looks for, it’s a good story. If it’s a love story, that is even better. As we already know, love can come in many forms. Here are three new BL series that remind us that love can be found when and where you can least expect it – and you can watch them for free on WeTV and iflix.
QUARANTHINGS: THE SERIES (2020)
CAST: Royce Cabrera, Kyo Quijano
DIRECTOR: Pancho Maniquis
Quaranthings: The Series follows the friendship of two boys, and how they find themselves falling in love in the midst of a lockdown. When the community quarantine started, those who could, went back home. That’s what all four housemates of Judah and Rocky did. The two people who hardly exchanged two words in the past were the ones left behind. With school out for the overachieving and competitive Judah and no odd jobs for the hardworking and street-smart breadwinner Rocky, they need to find something to keep them going everyday. Unable to do the things that give them meaning, can they survive being alone together? Or will they find meaning with each other.
