Although since its conception, BL and Yaoi are always use interchangeably as they're believe to be the same. But lately, BL is distancing itself from Yaoi, as it goes mainstream as it caters to the growing needs and interest of its core demographics. Yaoi meanwhile had maintained its original elements and tends to be more graphic as compared to BL which romanticize the characters love and affection for one another. But one thing that will always remain the same is that BL and Yaoi revolves around one common theme, which is the sweetness and pain of young love.
