They are very frisky together and very touchy feely with each other and obviously, there is some sort of undercurrent of attraction going on somewhere there which translates into the characters they play in the drama and which manifests itself offcamera during their interviews or when they are interacting as themselves whenever they are on breaks.
(c’mon… who wouldn’t be attracted if both of you are that good looking and then you are sharing a lot of romantic scenes together plus HOT tango scenes almost 24/7? he constant togetherness and closeness whets that fascination, added to the fact that sharing passionate scenes on top of that, is almost similar to throwing fire into an already ticking timebomb).
The chemistry between these two is so physical and sexual that it sometimes feel as if Wookie would bore holes into SunAh’s face whenever he looks at her or that Wookie’s abs would be erased because of how much SunAh manhandles him.
Case in point, just look at how Wookie’s hands linger on Sunah’s in this gif and how she gave his hands a gentle squeeze first before breaking away when they could have both just instantly parted.
It’s as if they can’t keep their hands off each other.
This is not the only manifestation but Wookie blushing because of the tango scene?
Wookie and Sunah both being so immersed in their characters that they are so affected with each others presence that they only have to look at each other and they could already cry?
TICKING TIME BOMB PEOPLE!
Aside from the constant togetherness, this is the primary reason why actors fall for co-actors because sometimes the lines blur between fiction and reality and that’s when you have the probability that it can translate into real life action.
Even in that presscon interview, their initial impressions of each other are as follows:
Wookie: I was surprised coz she’s so beautiful and she really has a very beautiful body.
SunAh: He’s good looking and cute and i think he has a very nice body.
Not that they have said they really like each other and that they are now dating and later on would get married but they are just so taken with each other physically and isn't that the most basic foundation of any relationship?
Somehow knowing that, there is a teeny, weeny bit of desire and hope for them to take that attraction by the horns and work on it so that it could develop into something more.
Let’s face it, if you’re physically attracted to a person it would just end up in either of 3 ways and actors are no different:
1. You have a fling or a dalliance which ends in a one night stand and voila! Itch scratched, curiosity over.
2. You work on that attraction, flirt continuously and in the process learn more about the person and that’s when you feel the urge to bring the attraction to a whole new level because your connection had already gone beyond that of just being physical.
3. You enjoy the moment, flirt continuously and then say goodbye when it’s time to say goodbye cooly.
Obviously, in this case, us shippers can only wish that the second scenario would come true.
But no matter what happens, for the meantime, let's just enjoy how they heat up our screen and savor each and every moment that they make us feel butterflies in our stomach while keeping our fingers crossed that one day in the future news about them dating would REALLY just break out.
A shipper can dream, can’t we?
TRIVIA: Dong Wook had an interview in 2006 wherein a fortune teller told him that he'd meet the girl he would marry this 2011.
Dearest fellow SunWook Shippers...
Let's give praise to one of the best OTP's of all time
and share our thoughts about this couple
with the hopes that their love would last forever.
