The Boys Love genre has shot up in popularity even more in the past few years, and Pearl Boy is riding the wave of popularity. This boy love manhwa has become quite a sensation with an intriguing plot and complex characters. Each one of the characters has some story to tell – the hardships they have faced and the thorny path that lies before them.
Pearl Boy is the love story between our main characters, Doo Shik and Joo Ha. Their love is not without hiccups, with family troubles, money problems, and uncertain career haunting their lives. The manhwa starts with Doo Shik running away to the countryside after stealing money from the store he used to work at. Doo Shik gets duped by one of his partners, who leaves with all the money, leaving him in debt and penniless.
In the countryside, Doo Shik finds himself homeless, with an empty bank account and stomach. After seeing a seafood restaurant, he goes in and eats to his heart full. After he’s done, he tries to leave sneakily without paying, but his plans are interrupted by Joo Ha, a young man who works at the restaurant. Joo Ha confronts Doo Shik, but they’re interrupted by some strange men tapping the restaurant door.
Doo Shik flees and begins working as a fisherman, fetching clams all day to sell. One day, his leg gets stuck while fetching clams, and he’s unable to get out in time, and a tide washes him away. Joo Ha, who witnessed the scene by chance, saves Doo Shik from drowning and brings Doo Shik back to his house. This marks the beginning of their odd relationship, which is not perfect but somehow captivatingly beautiful.
