So my love for these two men reaches far and beyond, further than maybe even the usual love you have for a pairing where the youngest one is 39. I think they’re perhaps one of the few otps I’ve got where I don’t go looking for ‘fic where they kiss and stuff because ultimate bromance is ultimate and ‘fic like that doesn’t need to be involved, lol.
I know it doesn’t seem like a pair whose average combined age is above 40 could be adorable and hilarious and just so fucking aldhsklhfdlsdkldfhjgkd;dnkjs BUT THEY ARE. Give me any of your otps or whatever and I bet you santaku’s not only done it better but cuter too. My favourite thing about them is that they have this really great camaraderie with each other and are just so comfortable with one another and honest to god, sometimes I think they forget their on tv
especially sanma and then kim has to remind him before he says another inappropriate thing lol and it’s just really fun getting a look into that sort of relationship.
In spite of their distinct idol and comedian images, I like to think they’re very much alike and they’ve got that going for them. I think once you boil them down to merely men, they have a lot of things in common, whether it’s sometimes taste in women or their smoking habit or the fact they both have daughters - they balance each other out very nicely. It’s pretty easy to see how much Sanma adores Kim, lol, and I think Kim adores him just as much, what with all the times he humours him and everything.
Actually. No. I’ve lied. My favourite thing about them is the way they laugh together. Just. idek how to describe it, it’s just so pure and contagious and unpolished and sincere and I swear to you that’s the sort of stuff happiness comes from.
I’ve barely covered the love I have for these two but this has already gotten too long and tumblr always makes me feel bad about being long-winded especially when it’s not in tags sooo, I’m stopping here. All you need to know is that they’re perfect and hilarious and beautiful together and I really couldn’t picture it any other way and they totally hang out even when it’s not for tv and you should love them too if you don’t already. <33
I RECOMMEND ALL THE SANTAKU IF YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.
This is one of those brotps where you absolutely can’t deny their chemistry. I’m not even talking about the sexual-tension-stuff we get in ‘fic; you can just sort of pretty much always tell that they genuinely get along and like each other outside of their Super Junior identity. I have a humongous thing for dynamics like that; where there’s sincere feelings on both ends and you know it’s not a complete front they’re putting up just to appease the fans. I DON’T EVEN THINK IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH MY MAJOR-MAJOR KANGIN BIASomg april you couldn’t come any sooner; already gearing up for the gargantuan amount of tears that will spew from my body ;AAAAAAAA; I HONESTLY LOVE THE WAY THEY CAN TEASE EACH OTHER AND THE BEAUTIFUL EASE YOU CAN SEE WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED WHEN THEY SHARE HUGS OR KANGIN SLINGS AN ARM ACROSS LEETEUK’S SHOULDERS AND BLAHBLAHBLAH <333 I can totally understand why they’ve got the mama!papa! role and I’m always impressed too because I mean, it’s not like Kangin’s even second or third oldest but he just exudes that hyung-feeling and masculinity and tbh this is like a word or two away from turning into a Kangin appreciation post. |D;
tl;dr: They balance each other really well I like to think and I think they cut each other slack and don’t have any problem humouring each other either and they’re just so great individually and once you put them together howdoyouevenresist? :’3
/p.s. why have the gods made it so that leeteuk leaves for the army before kangin comes back?
/that is like a really bad and angsty ‘fic ;~;
idk if I’m going to keep this uplike a certain 50 people i adore…but right now I’m in the mood, so why not, right? 8D;;
I get that 2TOP is one of those DUH! pairings and it seems to be default, lol, but tbqh they’re not my ultimate!otp! or anything like it but it’s really hard to not enjoy their dynamic either and not acknowledging them is a criminal offence in most countries~ One of the reasons I think people ship them so hard is THEIR HISTORY like seriously, it’s the sort of shit you can’t make up and fanfic has nothing on it. I also really-really enjoy that even though technically Nakai’s olderby like 3 mths; they’re so close in age and roles that they’ve gotten kind of awkward with time, ahaha, I mean they’re 39, Kim’s been married with children for years - I don’t expect them to do the things they used to do when they were in their 20s like spending christmas eve together strutting about town and getting bored then buying cake and splitting it between them two at one of their houses and spending the night together all brotp-like and I don’t expect them be as close as they were either. I also find it ridiculously endearing that Nakai’s the leader (mister-does-everything-behind-the-scenes-where-he-doesn’t-want-anyone-to-know-and-is-the-other-members-confessed-glue-of-the-group) and Kim’s the spiritual leader (dons-the-older-brother-always-here-for-you-and-gung-ho-for-everything-thrown-our-way-role-perfectly), as told by the other boys because Nakai will never admit he’s leaderthe fuck. But maybe it’s because of those thingsalongside a shitload of others that just having them stand beside each other makes the girls go wild lol. They also have the sexiest ‘fic, JS, so the sexual tension and power-play is forever thick. |D
/oh! andand! 2top talking about 2top is always a fucking riot, like, I LOVE THAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THE BIG DEAL AND DON’T GET THE NAME EITHER AND IT’S JUST BEAUTIFUL REALLY AND I’M SORRY THE FACT THAT THE OTHER FOUR SHIP 2TOP ESPECIALLY SHINGO AND GORO REITERATES THE AWESOMENESS OF IT ALL <33
/rambling for no reason at all since always
