Sometimes you just need a good cry before a happy ending.

Just like any other TV show or movie you watch, Taiwanese productions are no strangers to tearjerkers. While you may be captivated by the on-screen chemistry between the actors or the setting that you really enjoy, there are very few that don't count on your emotions to make an impression.

This may be a drawback for those who prefer a more upbeat style of storytelling, but for those who love to cry a little during a show to get something off their chest, it can actually be a great stress reliever.

Here are 5 Thai BL series you might want to check out to cry your heart out and get on with your life.
