    good cover art does not equal good story. and we already have a BL pandemic, no need for GL as well

    I swear advertisers pay attention to forum thread contents as the amount of BL webtoon ads I get have increased alongside the surge in BL threads.

    it's very good novels according to review. Also I don't need BL. I only need GL, I live for GL. No GL, No Life:cry:

    ads appear mostly through checking/marking your browser/search history. it knows where you are, so it shows you relevant to that ads

    I hate that I only clicked BL once or twice, but the ads are mostly BL, or gend-bend... All webtoons... which I have never ever touched...

    Because women hate women and will rather see two dudes romancing each other.
    Years of conditioning will do that to you.
    If not for that, women would rule the world today

    i know right, i have seen lot of women hate women, tearing them done. Same with female author who always abuse Female Mc and justice scum man. Even female readers forgive rapist and scum man but not female mc. They critics MC, they praise ML, they always forget that he rape MC. Then in BL novel, female author make female villain gangrape and die horrible.
    women are so scary and horrible.

    I guess even you fell for the scheme.
    Women are wonderful.
    Just misguided by a society ruled by men in order to suppress them.
    After all, it was men who thought taught these women how to read and write, etc

    People are sadly so focused on LGBT portrayal in media that they are not aware that women are demonized in media and that's are bigger issue.
    I usually support the female villain or avoid dramas with female villains

    I recently watched that and enjoyed this. Even if your female friends hurt you, it doesn't make them evil just human

    Never think of your fellow women as horrible. It subconsciously distances you from them.

    Cheers!

    You might want to try contacting Meow (?) who translated various Kor GL webcomic such as Miss Angel and Miss Devil, and others that I forgot. (I think it's not hard to search her tumblr?)

    I agree with most of the comments here.... I would like to see more Korean GL too...But i think their are not as much translators as we like there to be... An they would only want to translate the works they like themselves...
