K-pop has many forms of expression: the colorful outfits, the high energy dance moves and vocals, the catchy lyrics. But what’s most entertaining are the fans who ship. Shipping can be the result of many different factors: a quick moment of eye contact, a seemingly accidental brush of the hand, or even an actual confession from one idol to another. The ships can be cute, hilarious and downright obsessive. With all this in mind, it is not hard to see why fans are so invested in every little thing their idols do with each other (or without).
While some K-pop fans might cringe at public displays of affection and intimacy on stage during performances or award shows, for others like myself this creates an opportunity for pure delight.
These ardent supporters use every means necessary to show their love for two people who never met each other on a TV show, or in real life. GIF sets where they make out are one popular form of this art, but it doesn’t stop there: some of these aficionados have coded entire video games with main characters that can only be played together on a couch like those old war games. There is just something irresistible about having your favorite characters finally get together after years of dancing around each other on stage and in music videos. Seo in Guk and Eunji kiss is the perfect ship name for a fictional couple that doesn’t really exist, but gets the imagination of its fans flying. Even if you aren’t a fan, these wordplay couples will have you going ‘Ooh’ and ‘Aah’. This is definitely worth an article because these are some of the funniest pictures ever taken. Enjoy the article then head over to our Facebook page to share this article with your friends.
1. Their Names:
Seo In Guk and Eunji are the perfect wordplay couple because the second word in both of their names can be dropped to still make a satisfyingly funny couple. The first letter in each of their names is ‘S’ and you know fans don’t miss a chance to make that amusing. Seo In Guk becomes Shirt, and Eunji becomes Bull – and hey! Bull is about to be eaten by Shirt! We, at The Kpop Herald, would say that this is one of the funniest things we have ever seen.
2. Seo In Guk Doesn’t Look Too Happy:
The expression on his face says it all. He’s thinking: “What am I doing? Why am I in this situation?” The hand coming down on his shoulder looks like the person who took the picture is making sure he is still in there with Bull-Eunji, instead of bolting out of there. Maybe he didn’t see it coming: maybe someone came up to him and said “Come here, take a picture for our ship!” He was looking for an opening to say: “But I don’t want to do this!” but it was too late.
3. The Background Is More Interesting Than The Kiss:
It looks like Shirt is going through a photo album. This is probably his attempt to convince Bull-Eunji that he has a lot of pictures with her in them. Of course, Bull-Eunji is too busy singing and moving her body with such intensity that she’s not noticing the man trying to take her photo. You know it’s not just any other picture he is looking into though: it’s the one where they first met, right after the audition! It looks like he was in such a rush that he didn’t even notice how Seo In Guk got his hair cut and thankfully for him, he didn’t notice Eunji eating his sandwich (or maybe he did).
4. Eunji Is The Better Kisser:
Eunji looks like she is really getting into that kiss, and that’s probably why Shirt is looking so uncomfortable. What just happened? Did he do something wrong? He was so eager to beat the other guy for her affection, but now that he has her… well… he doesn’t want to ruin it by making a mistake. But Eunji looks like she only wants more. She wants to go all the way and if this picture is any indication… Shirt doesn’t give it to her! This makes him look like a tease (no pun intended) or worse, a player who just wanted her for the spotlight.
5. Shirt Is Trying To Regain Control:
It looks like he has calmed down and is trying to get back into the situation. Shirt is trying to be more in the moment, and Eunji is not letting him… but that’s OK. Shirt looks like he wants this to be over soon, but what’s done is done. Good thing Seo In Guk had his hair cut before this picture was taken and it can’t be as bad as it looks in the first place!
