If you ever have a weak moment remember JK said this in a formal press interview (where they were in black tie/suits) in front of serious people. twitter. com/kmgoogiemin/status/1451275303158956041 This wasn't a run ep or vlive. This was a super serious setting. JK said this proudly in front of V, Suga, Jin, anyone else he & JM are accused of dating & he meant it. This wasn't a joke. This was JK telling the truth & he wanted everyone to know. Not something he'd do if he & JM were dating others.
Yes he did say it, and he said it more than once too (in other settings).
But this setting, not a fanmeet or fansign, not a Run episode.
So, JM didn't confirm what JK says at that moment (he really couldn't, as much as he maybe wanted to).
Saying that, JM did find his own way to confirm it though, and he did so during that same interview.
Because when asked what he would take to a deserted island, JM's answer, after turning to look at JK, was "I think I will feel at ease by taking Jungkook with me". Being dead serious about it.
JKs answer, btw, was that he couldn't live without ARMY, ahm, lol.
SURPRISE VLIVE BEFORE THE CONCERT AND SURPRISE POST BECAUSE I RARELY DO THESE POSTS.
It's how JM has a soulmate, but puts his arm around JK.
It's how both his soulmate and JK are cuddly, but he mostly cuddles JK in this vlive. (He cuddles both their thighs/knees at one point.)
It's how he hasn't labeled their relationship as anything other than "older male and younger male" in so long now (hyung - dongsaeng). And we'll see if he sticks with "maknae" moving forward after all the controversy with dongsaeng in the fandom...🙃
It's how, despite how much time JK hangs out with JM he hasn't called him chingu (same-age friend) as he did with Tae and Tae and JM are the same age. And he calls JM as Jimin-ah as a same age or older friend would do. And, importantly, as JM would want a significant other to call him.
It's these little signals that don't need explanation or analysis, just observation. It's all right in front of our eyes.
I didn't think I would have to say this but, this is not the blog to complain that Jimin and Jungkook spend time with other members. This is not the blog to complain that they show more moments of another ship that Jimin and Jungkook are part of than Jikook.
I make posts saying that BHM has once again robbed us of a moment between Jimin and Jungkook but I do it with the understanding that we all understand it's a JOKE. Something to laugh about.
I am first and foremost a BTS fan. Of all the members.
I enjoy every single interaction Jimin and Jungkook have with other members and I'm glad BHM shows more of that. If anything, in these kinds of shows we see Jimin and Jungkook nurturing their relationships with other members and I love that.
How the fandom or a group reacts to genuine interactions between two members is THEIR problem. Yes, BHM edits content but that doesn't mean he's feeding certain shippers more than others. It's frankly stupid and highly hypocritical for a jkkr to say that because when a tkkr says the same words jkkrs are the first to criticize them.
If it bothers you to see clips or moments between Jungkook and Tae, what differentiates you from a tkkr?
Jungkook likes to back-hug Jimin. The other members stage an intervention. There are feelings, and a seduction plan, and Jungkook in a towel. And, well, Jimin is only so strong.
admin's note: aaaaah, young love. such a beautiful thing. aaaaaaah pining love, what a wonderful thing. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH MUTUAL PINING WHERE BOTH OF THEM ARE SO MADLY IN LOVE AND NEITHER REALIZE IT LOVE WHAT AN EXTRAORDINARY THING. as you can possibly tell. i really enjoyed this.
