The said project came as Filipino viewers have gone crazy over Thailand’s BL (Boy’s Love) stories during the quarantine period — such as 2gether: The Series and TharnType: The Series — and Japan’s Yaoi anime series.

As per the report, the release date of the said series has yet to be announced due to the community quarantine measures.
