“I’m surprised. That’s why I was looking for his upcoming drama schedule lol.”
“Oh, this is BL? I thought it was a slice of life, but there’s no romance in it. When I saw the movie, there are gay characters, but based on the synopsis, it’s not BL lol.”
“I think this might be the only BL project of his that I won’t watch.”
“Who is he? Oh my god, I’m so happy. By the way, ‘BL’ in my mind is just cute dramas, while this book is far from cute… I didn’t even smile a bit.”
“I’m so shocked that Nam Yoon Soo is starring in a BL.”
“BANG!! It’s been so long since he acted in a drama, and now…”
And many other comments.
The film “Love in the Big City” is scheduled to be released in the second half of 2024.
