I usually don’t do this kind of thing, but I’m itching inside while reading some stuff, and I just really want to put this out there…
Jungkook and Jimin have a close and special relationship. End point.
See, the thing about the recent event is that, no matter the circumstances, it doesn’t matter if he was quoting a k-drama (as I’ve seen some people attempting to point out, which… Sorry, it’s nice to think about stuff from different perspectives and in an unbiased way, but I just think it was a stupid thing to try and compare to, lmao. Especially if none of them have ever mentioned watching it, so…), what matters is that Jungkook is still younger than Jimin, and therefore, this is uncommon behaviour.
“Oh but he could have been joking around”, see, if he’s joking around, he’s still playing with hierarchy. He owes his hyungs respect, and if he’s gone and called Jimin “baby” even if as a joke, it’s because Jimin let him, or if he was opposed to it, Jimin would’ve scolded him immediately, and he didn’t.
IN FACT! Jimin didn’t even flinch. He didn’t react. Jimin reacted to it as naturally as the speed of which the pet name came out of Jungkook’s mouth. It was normal for both of them. The act itself is bold. What’s so difficult to understand?
“Oh, but he could’ve been talking to Taehyung!”
Sorry but no, Jungkook wasn’t talkingto Taehyung. Taehyung was right beside him, and when he spoke, he spoke louder and looked behind him - precisely at where Jimin was standing - to speak. If he was speaking to Taehyung, he wouldn’t need to look behind him, to where Jimin was. He would plainly and simply look beside him, where Taehyung was, which was much simpler and easier to do. Also, it was Jimin who was ‘holding them back’ because he was the one taking pictures and taking his time when both Jungkook and Taehyung were already ready to go. So, yes, he talked to Jimin.
And I can’t believe I’m saying this, but no, he was not talking to or about the ocean. I mean??? Do I even need to go there? Yeah, I thought so.
Thing is: Why is it so hard for some people to just accept the fact that Jungkook acts in a certain way with Jimin that:
- Is uncommon in between boys in Korea;
- Is uncommon when HE is the youngest in the pair. Jungkook is the maknae, he is Jimin’s dongsaeng. Jungkook is in (technically) a lower position in relation to Jimin.
Jimin doting on Jungkook, or any of the hyungs really, is common behaviour because Jungkook is the baby, he is the youngest. They will dote on him.
But the fact that some of the shit Junkook says (like speaking informally, calling Jimin princess, manggaetteok, baby) is not normal for the YOUNGEST to say/call/tell to his ELDER, and that is what is so telling.
It’s not the pet names themselves, it’s the fact that they’ve acquired such intimacy and comfort with each other that Jimin lets him do it and get away with it. And not only that, but Jimin is also comfortable with it. If he wasn’t so, he would’ve stopped Jungkook a long time ago.
So really, the main point here is: the things that Jungkook does to Jimin, he doesn’t do to any of his other hyungs, and the things he does to Jimin, they’re uncommon. It’s a breach in hierarchy, and this is what’s shocking and this, per se, is what speaks so loud about their dynamics and relationship. They’re close. Maybe the closest in the band, and no one can deny it.
I’m not making any assumptions in here, see? I’m just plainly stating facts. For Jungkook to be able to do such thing is because Jimin lets him. And for Jimin to let him, it’s because they’re close. End point.
I have no idea if they are dating or not, I don’t even feel comfortable saying it, this is not even what this post is about.
What I’m trying to say here and I’m rambling is just that I don’t get people being so salty and annoying over facts and why people keep trying to deny facts. They are close. Jikook are close, and that’s it. Just get over it.
Even if as a joke, even if as a quote, it’s still the dongsaeng calling his hyung baby. It’s the act. It’s the dynamics. @satellite-jeon has spoken about this so many times now, and she explained it well enough in her last post.
So, please. I’m not trying to prove shit with this, I’m just trying to say that Jimin and Jungkook have a special relationship. Be it platonic, be it romantic, be it professional, be it whatever. They have something special.
[#I.M] Handsome person, the sleepy person who also appears to be cool, the person with a good personality, a person who is great in many ways, just a cool person, today a lot of people are gonna greet you hyung, but I’ll also greet you. I love you. #0115HyungwonDay
[#HYUNGWON] My dongsaeng who I love, adore, am sorry towards and am thankful towards Changkyun-ah. My expression is clumsy and I’m not good with words but I’m always thankful. I’m thankful that you’re our team’s maknae. Happy birthday and you’ve worked well today. I like you #TheOneWhoActsLikeHeIsNotCuteButIsCuteDuringTimesLikeThese #YourCharm #0126IM데이
Awwww Hoseok wrote Tae a letter when he was having a bad day. Tae said he looked like he was asleep, but wasn’t, so he saw Hoseok quietly leaving him a letter next to his pillow. These boys :((((((((((((((( the most thoughtful and loving set of boys :((((((
In s2 ep1 Shiro and Keith are reluctant to tell each other how much in danger/pain they are, even in such a perilous situation. Isn't that kind of romantic subtext? They're too sweet, friends or brothers (lol) wouldn't even act like that.
Actually, that’s not what really happens, like it starts like that but then it takes a kinda strange turn with Shiro just being very very openly weak, which is important because it says SO MUCH (seriously he goes so fast from “I’m ok, dun worry about me” to “I’M DYING KEITH” (and yeah, he is actually dying I guess, but he’s been in bad situations before and we never see him showing weakness like that)
This episode stands out to me as having kinda romantic undertones because suddenly there’s this definite change of mood? (It’s not like anything romantic actually happens, but the mood totally changes in the Shiro/Keith scenes) and not like just compared to the rest of the episode, but to the entire show until now.
And like we don’t really see that before (maybe a bit in the shack scene), but now we see how Keith and Shiro act when it’’s just the two of them, and it’s so different, and you really get how they see each other, and there’s a sense of intimacy, care, unlimited faith in each other, and also this episode definitly puts them on equal grounds.
And it would have all been totally brotherly, if it wasn’t for that little but definite EXTRA haha
“Across the Universe” is totally the Sheith episode
I love the idea of Mike trying to hold El’s hand under the dinner table and just flubbing it up because she still makes him so self-conscious and flustered and awkward. She’s over for dinner for the first time with Will and the rest of the guys and she looks a little nervous, having just met Mike’s parents, so he wants to try and comfort her somehow, but he doesn’t know how, so he decides to maybe just hold her hand to let her know he’s there for her. So she’s sitting at the head of the table and he’s sitting next to her in his usual spot and he’s going through the whole “Should I? Is she going to think it’s weird? Am I just going to make her MORE nervous? Screw it, I’m gonna do it” and he works himself up so much that he just rams his hand into the table leg while reaching for her hand. It jostles the table and EVERYONE looks and he’s embarrassed, thinking “Wow, Mike, how could you screw something THAT SIMPLE up?” He’s completely red in the face and his mom’s asking “What’s wrong?” and he’s just saying “Nothing, sorry” and desperately trying to divert the attention away from himself. It’s a total personal DISASTER for him but eventually everyone just shrugs and goes back to their dinner. He’s not looking at anyone, especially not El, trying to stop blushing so hard and just feeling like he wants to crawl under a rock and DIE when he feels someone’s hand tentatively rest on top of his and he looks up and it’s EL and she’s shyly smiling at him, her own face a bit pink as she looks away, sheepish, and he just wraps his fingers around hers and smiles back at her, making her turn a shade pinker, he notices. But the nervousness starts to fade from her eyes, and suddenly he feels ten times better, although the blushing definitely doesn’t go away.
had public rehearsals that included soft little conversations to the back (a
little lip eyeing) and Jeon walking up to Jimin smiling at him while he fluffs
his hair or plays with his managers’. Aaaaaaand then Jeon decided he needed to
add a dash of naughty. Because his lovely Jiminie has been bending over in front
of him every time they perform BST, and he’s literally shedding blood, sweat
and tears because of him. He couldn’t take it anymore! So he gave in to his
impulses and rubbed & smacked the jibooty. (Much to Bangtan’s laughter and
Jimin’s disbelief). His massive bunny smile after makes Jimin forgive him (but
not trust him, after all JK is his dangerous weakness).
for real hc: michael n jer can NOT play video games against each other (like,,,,competitive games lmao) because they always forget that they're not playing together and try to help the other out instead of tryin 2 kill each other
evie u just cured my depression omg this is so sweet……….like they gotta build a pillow wall so they cant even be temped hfdjlfjlfdk
HC: I like to imagine that even when Victor and Yuuri get into an argument/fight, they'll still be in constant physical contact with each other: touches assuring that yes, we're having a disagreement right now, but I *won't* ignore/leave you just because of this. They won't speak to each other, they're petty that way, but a hand on a shoulder- have you showered already? A hand on an arm- have you eaten yet? A hand on a waist- are you sleepy? Those simple things. (1/2)
AWWWWWW this is so sweet and I totally share this headcanon!!! They slip into bed still angry with each other but after like, a minute, Yuuri silently slips a hand around Victor’s waist and Victor quietly cuddles against him and they’re still mad but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re in love :( :(
