Hwoarang and Lili
As a romantic ship:
I don’t know them enough | wtf | why | just NO | tolerable | they’re okay | cute | awww | babies | hot | I will go down with this ship | OTP
I know this is a fairly popular ship in the fandom, but it really doesn’t do anything for me, alas. I don’t see Lili as being Hwoa’s type at all and vice versa - I think they’d be totally disinterested in one another as romantic prospects. (Also, isn’t Lili like, sixteen in canon? step away from the schoolgirl, Hwoa.)
However, I do like them…
… as a platonic friendship:
I don’t know them enough | wtf | why | just NO | tolerable | they’re okay | cute | awww | babies | hot | I will go down with this ship | OTP | why is this not canon
I really would love to see these two become friends. I think their being from vastly different backgrounds would make for a lot of friction and bickering initially, but I’m sure they’d eventually find common ground (in their shared interest in Kazama stalking, for example) and develop that type of friendship where almost every exchange is made up of teasing and really-harsh-but-affectionate insults. They’d totally go on Kazama tracking adventures together, you can’t tell me otherwise.
