Hallmarks of a BL
If you dissect a BL film, what are the hallmarks that should be there? The male leads needs to kiss, this is central to any BL movies, conflicts and dramas among the characters, one of the male lead has to piggyback ride the other lead, some Pocky action, Pocky is a thin Japanese brand chocolate covered biscuit in stick form, the male leads will share one Pocky and using their lips they will eat the biscuit, added bonus, they might kiss once the Pocky was totally consumed. Expect a female friend who represents the BL audience, she's usually the friend of one of the male lead, her role requires her to be very funny, or to fall in love with the main BL lead. There's jealousy everywhere. And of course expect the two male leads to be extremely handsome and with perfect chemistry.
