The Hak and Yona relationship, IMO, is not a relationship filled with mutual understanding and respect where both party supports and gives. It's a one way relationship with one person doing all the supporting and giving while the other takes, demands, and uses. It's obvious which is which. No one's expecting them to be perfect from the start but outside of Yona's feelings for Hak turning romantic, there has been no change or real growth in the relationship they share. What am I missing?
Ngl anon, when I saw this I immediately started typing up this massive reply where I first went through every arc to show where Yona respected, understood and supported Hak and then began explaining how this was all connected, how they’ve both changed together as a result of these occurrences, and how their thinking has changed. I’m… not even kidding, here’s a screenshot of part of the original draft:
But, then I realised a little way through that the fact that I could find evidence in every single arc of development between the two, could point to moments in canon where they specifically say that they mean a lot to each other and want to support each other, and that they are so obviously not the same people they were in the first few chapters, made me come to the conclusion that maybe you are just missing something anon. And I don’t want to mean that in a nasty way - after all, we all read stories and interpret them differently and find different messages. But, if you’ve read 140+ chapters of this manga and can’t see a change in Hak and Yona and their relationship, then there’s nothing I can do. That’s honestly the bottom line for me. And, if my praising of them annoys you so much that you want to message me and point out your opinion every time I comment on them, I think it’s best that you un-follow me. Or, if you already don’t follow me, just ignore my blog. Honestly, it’ll save you a lot of annoyance, save me from constantly having to spend time defending a viewpoint you will probably never agree with, and we can part ways as unlikely friends. As a start to this unlikely friendship, here are three random facts about me:
- I hate lime flavouring in candy. It’s icky *pulls face*
- I have 15 mobiles/wind chimes hanging in my room because I love chimes and people like to gift them to me.
- My dad makes the best unbaked cheesecake.
