hello!! Im a jikook shipper. I saw your post where you said you think jikook might be real. (: but i saw you mention another group you liked, and despite knowing that group, you never grew suspicion over a ship. i dont want to name the ship but i think you may know which one it is (two members who have been v close since before debut. discharged from the military a couple months ago.) I would subconsciously compare jikook to them sometimes bc idk... its so supicious djfks. wdy think??
Yes.. I know which ship you’re talking about. I’ll be honest.. with the EH/DH ship, I wouldn’t be surprised if they turned out real. But I’m 50-50 on that. Things I can’t deny about the ship is that they’re:
- tuned in to (mostly if not only) each other
- always together
- cute that he calls EH’s mum, “MUM”
- very touchy
- when they have beef, it’s obvious
- do get jealous
- always either complimenting each other or bickering
- they ship themselves
But with SJ I’m not so sure because they’ve always been very opaque in their fan service and could come of as either clingy best friends or well-established “some”. Maybe it’s because of how blatant they’re being that the ship is able to hide in plain sight. I’m looking at it from an extremely close friendship point of view. It can slide to either or. Though I don’t know how they are off camera. And their personalities are genuinely pretty loud with each other so I don’t know how they converse in private. It could be a relationship.. it could be a soulmate thing.. could be friendship.
But like.. the thing about Jikook that strikes me is that they had progression and at one point it felt like they were fighting against their feelings or summat? In the beginning they made it out like a joke but even through the joke the gazes are soft. And the touches that count are subtle. The intonation in their voices gradually evolved over time and the way they tilt their heads and kinda get lost in looking at each other is.. interesting? The fundamentals are quiet with punches of loudness a.k.a. Summer Package, GCF, etc
Touching includes things like combing hands through each other’s hair and having seemingly quiet mental breakdowns for certain reasons or during certain skin-ships. And mostly because a lot of the time it seems like JK/JM are dying to say something or are questioning half the shit they do. Like when JM “kissed” JK’s neck during the fan signing for supposed “fan service” and walked off to the side looking lost?
What I can’t deny about HH is that they love each other and they’re not your average relationship. They could be dating. It’s highly possible. I’m not exactly opposed. But Jikook is still at the top of my list of ships that made me go ????? It all boils down to body language.
