Koogi said it herself, KS isn’t meant to sexualize an abusive, homosexual relationship. In fact, KS’s main theme isn’t even romanticizing their relationship. So antis can’t say that the comic fetishizes unhealthy gay relationships.
Why do you think Sangwoo was saying "shut up" when Bum was confessing to him and saying he likes him? I've seen some posts saying it's because Sangwoo feels like Bum is trying to manipulate him - but personally, I think it's because hearing Bum say that was getting Sangwoo flustered and stirring up unwanted feelings (I mean he did come just moments later??). So I'm curious about what you made of that scene! Always love reading your analyses btw x
