Hello :'D What do you think of the way Mark stares as JinYoung? And especially when he gets disgruntled/jealous whenever he sees him with someone else - Or am I just delulu haha. Also, I have to say I really, really love your blog. Your opinions are very well thought out & I'm super amazed with your efforts. Kudos!
Hi cutie ^^ first off, I have to say: no one really knows the relationships between the boys. All of us are just fans and we don’t really know what goes on in private ^^ Anything I say, although based on what I see, is just my opinion ^^
warning: basically a short markjin essay, please forgive me LOL I’m trash
:) I agree with you, though I think Mark got jealous before more frequently than now. I think Jinyoung has always been someone who has helped Mark and taken care of him, so Mark was very attached to Jinyoung, as someone who could help and reassure him (you can see how they seem very fond when they talk about their trainee days, how they would eat ice cream together. They always went out together and talked, even with a language barrier. The fact that Jinyoung would go to Mark’s interviews and help him when he was nervous with Korean). I think he still has that attachment now (like Mark running over to hug Jinyoung when Jinyoung was paired with Yugyeom during the school attack thing), but I think Mark is slightly more confident than before, so he doesn’t try to monopolize Jinyoung as much as before (though he still tries~~) ^^ Also, I think skinship is something that Jinyoung also helped make Mark more comfortable with. Like skinship isn’t really a thing here in America and a lot of guys are weirded out by it and I think Mark was the same. But I think since Jinyoung is naturally touchy with people he’s close to (Jackson too, but early on, I think Jackson tried to play more into Mark’s American “bro” vibe, in which people don’t kiss cheeks or hold hands), Jinyoung helped Mark become more comfortable with skinship. In real got7 season 1, when Jinyoung kisses Mark’s cheek, Mark was beyond surprised and freaked out a tiny bit XD But then later on, Mark was the one kissing Jinyoung on the cheek and back hugging, without any trouble at all. I think since Jinyoung was the one to expose Mark to that kind of skinship, Mark naturally became most comfortable with skinship with Jinyoung (these days though, Mark is a skinship machine LOL).
omg I’m getting off track!! ANYWAY, my point was, that since Jinyoung was really a large part of Mark’s life in Korea early on, especially in the aspect of helping him fit in more with Korean culture, I think Mark became attached to Jinyoung early on, and that’s where his jealousy stems from. When something is a source of comfort for you, you kind of don’t want to share it ^^ since Mark is more comfortable and confident now, I don’t think he gets jealous as often as before. But of course, you still see him wanting to be paired with Jinyoung and staying close to him and doing skinship with him (NEVER FORGET THAT THEY SPOONED WHEN THEY NAPPED), and I think wanting to be with someone he’s so comfortable with, is where that jealousy comes from ^^ ❤️️
