I fall in love with YoonHae because of (not in order):
- The way he mentioned her first in 5jib’s “thanks to”
- Their supportive, relatively-peaceful fandom: Pyrotechnics
- Oleracea’s compilation of YoonHae Moments. (as to this date), 63 moments. That’s a LOT.
- The awkwardness they show on official screen, BUT what makes it fishy…
- …is the comfort they show on unofficial fancam footage (my favorite prime example: when Hae drank the water from Yoong’s bottle so casually. I don’t know how precisely it is in Korean, but I think in Asian, it’s something you do with someone you’re comfortable with)
- The rumors about them dating.
- The rumors about them dating, especially those which come from the protective Yoonadict or Elfishy. Rumors that come from haters show the lack of bias-ness level, hehe.
- The SS2 Backstage hug. Different from any other Kpop hugs because it was: (i) long enough, (ii) proximate enough [Donghae really hugged -even leaned closely onto Yoong], (iii) awkward right after the moment Hae realized the camera
- The way they inspire me to write fanfic
- The way that they make me see a ‘flat’ relationship (by ‘flat’ : they’re not the cliche opposite-attract/bantering type of pairing) as a relationship that is actually realistic.
- The way he recognized her legs instantly & the way he chose her eyes as the eyes he liked the most
- The hidden Pyrotechnics among SNSD and Super Junior (Hyo, Fany, and Shindong are my main suspects)
- The April Mop prank the K-ELFish did on Hae’s official website (Eun So’s appearance is predictable because of Hae’s participation in WGM. But Yoona’s?)
- Mnet Scandal. Rank #7, not bad.
- “Yoong and Hae, we are number 1”
Will be adding the list when I’m in the mood.
