This follows the story of illustrator Okusawa Ritsu and salesman Ikegami Fumiya. They met at an old coffee shop and eventually fell in love and lived happily together. However, a misunderstanding gradually arises between Ritsu, who lives freely, and Fumiya, who is swayed by it. After a fight one winter day, Ritsu leaves the house and is involved in an accident, and loses consciousness. Upon awakening, Ritsu had lost only the memory of Fumiya. Wanting to start their relationship over from scratch, Fumiya hides the fact that he was dating Ritsu and resumes their joint life. However, Ritsu asks him to take him to a familiar place in order to regain his memory. Fumiya is reluctant, but the two of them start a "journey" to follow the trajectory of their relationship. The coffee shop where they met for the first time, the riverside road they always strolled, the places they both traveled to before dating... Sweet memories and bittersweet memories, the time they spend together haunts Fumiya's mind. Ritsu, on the other hand, finds himself gradually becomes attracted to Fumiya again while having amnesia.

Beautiful cinematography and amazing chemistry

I have liked a bl after a long long time.. BL these days are just not making me interested. its either the acting or the story or the chemistry that lacks. This BL, and i think Japanese BL its itself are really really really good as compared to other countries. they have better acting better direction and mature themes.

This is absolutely beautiful. I loved it from the first episode. The characters are flawed but so are we and thats what makes it relatable. Highly recommended if you are bored of shitty thai bl these days.

A BL with Passion and Care

I am so happy MBS is starting to make more BL series. Their past BLs have been so relieving knowing that there are still producers and writers who care about the genre and the content they're pushing out. A lot of BLs releasing right now feel like they weren't given as much thought or care, but Jack O' Frost is one which I really respect and love for putting out something meaningful and worth to watch. For the actual review, I love the atmosphere that the film style brings. Without spoiling much, the way they filmed everything felt very nostalgic, cozy while also having a deep sense of longing for the past. The acting is better than I expected, seeing as one of the main characters was a support for another BL I watched (which wasn't on my list of things to recommend). But his acting, both of their acting actually was amazing. Their chemistry felt realistic that during some scenes I felt like I was interrupting their privacy and had to look away. Overall I would really recommend this to BL lovers. I hardly say that nowadays since I've stated before, a lot of the BLs currently coming out felt like a waste of my time, very fan service and unoriginal but that's a critique on the genre as a whole. However, Jack O' Frost gives something new and focuses on a story that doesn't talk about the same old "dealing with coming out" situations. I guess lately I got so tired of that plot-line cause its everywhere that I look for more mature BL shows, and this one really hits the nail. 9.5/10
