The next point, JK's feeling. The way JK behaves shows that he attracts to Somin. But did he already come clean with this idea? Would he accept his feeling and pursue the lady? He is 10 years older than her and even more they are colleagues in a variety show. It is a hard decision for him to make. So, being the central of everyone's attention won't do him any good.

Hi, 

 

IMHO, it may also hinges on Sechan and Somin.

 

If Sechan has feelings for Somin, KJK will hide his true feelings and 'sacrifice' himself. No right or wrong, but just his character. 

 

If Sechan has no feelings for Somin, KJK gets the greatest wingman he can ever have. This will improves the chances of kookmin becoming true.

 

For Somin, i think she has to be direct and active for kookmin to have a higher chance of coming true. Of course, opposites can happen but just stating my sense of probabilities. I am still grateful she brought much joy and laughter to him.

 

The problem is KJK hides too much emotional stuff under a gruff exterior. So it is very hard to get a good read. In shows, it has always been stated KJK does not like those emotional or touching stuff or atmosphere. This is actually some form of escapism whereby some people hides their raw emotions under a shell. I belong to the group that feels that contrary to belief, KJK doesn't have high self-esteem; in fact he has tons of doubt in his own self. This may be due to his own bad experiences when young.

 

Thanks.

I think Kookmin can happen as long as Haha does not force it onscreen (which according to KJK is like a jinxing curse LOL). 


HaHa seems to be well aware of it. He is jong kook’s best friend, and has been through matching up with several dates for him probably far more than jaesuk.
 

I think he has learned mistakes and loopholes around it. I think haha really do think somin as potential because he didn’t forced it on kookmin as if he is well aware. Sechan is more of on somin’s side that he knows somin better, and what kind of person she likes. Sechan is more open with his expression, and even talkative about kookmin. It is up to others to decide on loveliune. Sechan treated kookmin with more sincerity. No one forced it but just to share background stories, then their memories disappeared afterwards.

 

Haha knew how to make jong kook uncomfortable or take notice of a girl. haha is also trying to increase screentime for him and jong kook for work. Jong kook usually don’t pay attention until someone tells him so. He created loveline as opportunity to jong kook to take little attention even think he didn’t like how it acts as potential ones for him. But he does know how to draw the line depending on a person. The way haha deals with kookmin is just what jong kook wants if he is seriously interested. Jong kook often said he prefers to meet his wife by fate and being emotionally comfortable with each other in their early impression before they get serious or choose each other in an equal matter. I think he just didn’t want to have broken heart again. So it needs to be total two way street, not half way. He takes it seriously that he wanted to make sure the girl will be devoted to him as he will be as well. He wanted to make sure if the girl can accept his flaws as he would do the same for the girl. It is seems like how he accepted somin’s weirdness that he finds her so charming with it. Somin in a way always kept his ego in check. He shows her his soft and lovely side she didn’t know about. She misunderstood him at first, gradually with explanation and opening up with skits and wits, it went to next step. In mid 2019, he shared his romantic side like taking picture, wanting to change his persona so he won’t resent her for persona to share secrets, and etc. Somin does the same for jong kook that she is loyal, do not take things for granted, very tender hearted, gets along with his closest friends, and works very hard and very dedicated. I think haha saw the gradual understanding in both side that could fulfil into a relationship later on. He knows jong kook who will take very delicately but needs help but not rushing him. Somin is always hurry to love and have passionate moments. That is probably haha decided to talk with her for a long time about love. I think haha wouldn’t jinx it ever. It is quite rare to see the kind of journey for jong kook to have that kind of beautiful friendship with a woman he consider as his closest friend.

Yep, it is his character to consider his friends first before he would choose to date or not. 
 

What if somin has feelings for jong kook, not sechan. And both men do have feelings for her. Wouldn’t it be right for jong kook to pursue her instead of considering sechan’s feelings first. 

it seems like the fortune telling forecast 2020 is quite specific as it is sending message to jong kook and people close to him to be aware of her heart. Somin asked about the age group. The message is VERY clear. Combing with 2018 fortune telling forecast about her destiny, it is even clearer. She was also chosen most compatible with jong kook too in 2018. That shouldn’t change, but the taffy like relationship is more of balancing her reading. Fortune teller said one person who is gives Kwangsoo warmth and affection is somin. They didn’t end up together but they have very close friendship and business partners. Fortune teller said in 2018 that jong kook will go through changes. His stance on somin really changes from one to another big time. It feels like somin wanted to tell him that she wants him, not sechan in plain sight for us not to see. She distract us with silly stories about chanmin loveline, taffy friendship, and skits expecting us to have short term memory. After that, kookmin became closer and rely on each other. His body language, skinship, and gap with her is closer than ever. 


What if sechan’s feelings for somin changed at the last minute? Would jong kook sacrifice himself again? If somin is constantly want to be with jong kook, if jong kook ever thought about sacrificing himself, she will punch him. (Just kidding, somin will think jong kook doesn’t love her enough not to sacrifice himself for his best friend). If jong kook doesn’t sacrifice himself, sechan will accept wholeheartedly. Somin is worth fighting for, but she gets to choose. I think sechan knows very well that somin likes jong kook a lot. Look at the t shirt he gave her with jong kook on it. And somin telling everyone including jong kook. He gets the shirt back and it will remind him. Somin did say that she didn’t exactly want to give it away. It is like she wants to send the message across!!

Then, he is a fool if he sacrifices himself for Sechan's feeling when Somin blatantly said she won't marry Sechan. I mean, Sechan's feeling will lead to nowhere since the lady doesn't reciprocate it.

 

In the end, it's up to him. If what he feels is love and decides to step back because of one sided love of his friend, that is his loss. But hey, Running Man is not going to end anytime soon. They are going to spend lots of time filming together. I wonder for how long he can withstand the lady's charms. Just a simple funny story from her can cause him to smile silly. Let alone if Somin displays all her charms. Haha.

Somin’s book is the latest key!!! Imagine how many pages jong kook will find excuse to call her to make interpretation and chat about their pain, insights about love, or etc. It is like somin is trying to be there for him and make their friendship stronger. Somin wrote in her book that she would love to chat with anyone who wants to talk about love, drink stories, pain, and poetry. Jong kook would love that with her. Most of his comments appear in her poetry posts in IG. The way somin explain to jong kook about her commentary on one of her poem, he looked at her with intensity and Curiosity. It is like he is interested in the beauty of her mind and soul. Remember the part somin wrote her grade poem and sukjin interrupted the reading, jong kook got so defensive. He likes it so much! He gave blunt scolding to his elder. Oh dear. 
 

actually poems would make you read over and over again. Most poems for me, I don’t get the first impression to understand it. I have to analyse the words and lines and look into different perspective in another round. It gets clearer to understand. I had to read somin’s poem around 3 or 4 times to see in different angles to get it. Sometimes other famous poems wrote in old English language or complicated cultural references, I had to take a peek of cheat sheet or ask my friend or teacher to understand. Then I read it again, it start to make sense. I kind of thought jong kook really likes it even though it is hard for him to understand. Once he read it again in different angle and somin’s commentary, it will bring more light to him. I think he really means it when he called her his favourite writer not just promoting her for her sake.

i don't think kjk will give up on jsm if se chan  alone develops feelings for her. i feel he is more curious about jsm's feelings than ysc's. i have felt that lks too had feelings for jsm at one point, but jsm never thought of lks as a dating possibility. yet, it used to make kjk jealous. he used to complain when they used to dress in a similar fashion. even at the awards which he hosted, when he interviews kwangmin, kjk is more curious about why jsm called lks to her house than as to why lks went there. i also feel the cast thought kwangmin may not work out as a couple since lks is more temperamental, but with chanmin, they feel it could work. ysc is steadier in some ways, jsm's mom likes him, they go to the same church and have a longer friendship,

 

i know people think jsm's feelings for kjk are clear, but i don't know. kjk is more clear to me than jsm at times.  kjk definitely has feelings for jsm, but from how he responds to the marriage question, i don't think he has reached that point yet. i am not sure about jsm. jsm's feelings were clearer for me a few months back, but ever since the loveline started and kookmin sns interactions have stopped, it is harder to see on what page she is. if she is looking for marriage within a specific time period (3 years starting from last year) and is getting worried about kjk not making a move, ysc could be an option though she is still joking about it. that is why i feel the cast are all interested in finding what is going to happen between them including kjk and haha. kjk's words to haha when they called up jsm was 'let's tell jsm ysc is interested in her and see how she responds'. so he may also be trying to see what is in her heart. i don't think he has reached a stage where he can promise her marriage since from whatever we see, he is just getting to know her as a person. ysc has known her for a longer time and if she is ready, i think ysc will be ready to marry her. they are all joking about it, but sometimes the jokes seem like they have a serious intent. jsj got really upset whenever there was talk about chanmin turning real. when jsm told them about her mother asking for ysc's number, he snapped and said she shouldn't give it to her. when yjs talked about jsj officiating their wedding, jsj snapped again at jsm.  jsm replied then that it was not going to happen since ysc didn't respond when she called him for bingsu. so i don't know. i think the loveline has made everyone's feelings slightly messed up. i hope they sort it out soon.

 

i think kjk would  want jsm to wait longer until he gets there. but if she feels she cannot wait and if her heart can move towards ysc if he confesses, i think he would wish them well. i think that goes with what i think i know of his character.

What I don’t understand is why everyone seems to think if she’s not going to end up with kjk she’s going to end up with sechan. There is probably a higher chance of her ending with neither of them. 
 

But, if we’re thinking between kjk and ysc these are my thoughts. I believes that somin and sechan don’t have feelings for each other as they both stated many times. Sechan used to openly state that he didn’t like somin like that but people constantly ignored that and said he liked her anyways so I’m not surprised he stopped trying and just decided to play along. Somin also stated continuously that she is only playing around and this episode she literally said she’s not going to marry sechan, but tried to play it off by mentioning him not accepting her bingsu outing. I don’t know maybe everyone else is seeing something I’m not. Before the loveline officially she started she denied liking ysc but with kjk she wouldn’t deny anything, now after the loveline started she still somewhat denies actually starting a relationship with sechan but tries to play around a bit and yet still never denies anything with kjk. I think it’s very obvious if she has feelings for either of the two it would definitely be kjk before sechan.

I feel the recent occurrences have cast a shadow on the previous months that had a bunch of unexplained happenings. Here’s my stance on Chanmin: On dec 31 the episode with AHJ was filmed, on that said episode Somin said that Sechan could basically be a third wheel, would she said that if she truly saw Chanmin as a possibility? On the episode where KJK, Sechan and Somin made a team, when they got inside the car Somin said; yeobo, let’s go! Sechan laughed but KJK I’m almost 99.99% sure he said; “Yes!” Now, I don’t know much about our  KJK but I feel he wouldn’t play like that if he thought Sechan and Somin could be something. On that same car scene, Somin says; “How did I gave birth to such a handsome son (meaning KJK) with you,” isn’t that sentence implying that Sechan isn’t that handsome?? That line is funny in a teasing platonic friends way, but if she thought Sechan was into her, wouldn’t that be too mean? On Ha-na’s radio show, Somin chose AHJ instead of Sechan, again, wouldn’t that be too mean if they could actually be something?  I mean I understand recently the loveline has been shove down out throats so hard that is completely normal that is making us confused, but we also gotta understand the we don’t know how much of the loveline is asked by the PD and how much is planned by the cast members, the loveline also got a lot of interest but now that it has gone down maybe it’ll be easier to let go.

 

Rewatching the most recent episode, when Haha teases Sechan for helping Somin when she’s looking at the picture, Somin usually will play the loveline with a funny line or something but we got nothing from her that time. She was asked about her family and she answered truthfully . YJS said something about marriage and Somin immediately said no, when Sechan talked about his brother asking about Somin when he was drunk Sechan also denied it and said; me and Somin are not like that. So in this episode we got denials from both Somin and Sechan, now I don’t know if this is indication that the loveline is planned to end soon (wouldn’t get my hopes up honestly) but is pretty clear to me we’re getting denials and people are just missing it. 

 

Now, KJK had the perfect opportunity to unite the maknaes, he could’ve added Sechan to sing Confession with Somin and KJK but he didn’t, if he though Sechan and Somin could be something wouldn’t he avoid Somin more? He’s not avoiding her at all, in fact you could say he is the happiest when he is with Somin, In the fortune telling episode, the fortune teller said Sechan and Somin would be taffy and KJK was the first to say; “that’s negative though”. People keep talking about MUD as if it isn’t more scripted than RM, also the call, honestly what I got from it is a lot of denial from Somin and from Sechan when he said; Matchmake KJK first, haha. If he truly wanted to be with Somin he probably wouldn’t feel so inclined to deny, deny, deny.

 I think jsm has no feelings for ysc whatsoever except friendship. To me, they are both platonic. It's simply the loveline confusing everyone. If before the loveline, anyone suspected ysc as JSM's possible choice for a future partner then it would be understandable. But unless maybe their silent shippers, I don't think anyone saw either of them as anything other than best friends. The loveline comes along where she starts acting like she's interested and ysc acting shy (might not be an act tho, he might be genuinely flustered, even if it's a loveline they are friends first before anything else). People keep referring to when she said that after 3 years, if they are both single, they should get married to eachother but you could tell it was a joke. One she didn't and doesn't mean. I think for a romantic like jsm, marrying someone simply because she has run out of options is incomprehensible. And ysc too won't want to get married to someone just because he's her last choice so that part was obviously a joke that people took literally. From whatever I know of jsm, she doesn't have feelings for ysc neither does ysc have feelings for her. It's all edited and acted to look the way it is, the members go overboard with their jokes sometimes and it can cause problems in the future which is why i think jsj was sensitive. Since they have successfully dropped two lovelines without a glitch (kwangmin and spartace) after monday couple, I feel the PD and members think they can push their limits now and easily drop it when it's time but they are go too far sometimes and it makes it tiring and just makes jsm look like she's playing him.

 

I also doubt kjk will be wary IF ysc has some feelings for jsm when she doesn't reciprocate it. I really thought it impossible because of the nature with which it was introduced but people are really taking this loveline serious. Why would he give her up if he is interested because of ysc when jsm doesn't romantically like ysc back? And even if he has to be wary of someone why is it Sechan that she is in a variety loveline with, why not her mystery man she wanted to confess to her? I admit I find it rather funny how that was swept under the rug. When the fan meeting episode came out and I saw she wrote a song for someone she liked and liked her back but wasn't ready to commit I was so sure they would bring it up and tease her for it. But it's like the meaning and the purpose of the song was nonexistent the way it was ignored. They started the loveline with ysc few episodes to the fanmeeting so when the song came out, some fans actually thought she was referring to ysc. If there even was a small chance ysc was the man she was talking about, they would have brought the song up in relation to both of them since then but no, so it looks like it's someone else then. So why would kjk be worrying about ysc when there is literally a whole other mystery man jsm is interested and is interested in her too if he likes her?

 

Do I think kjk is interested in jsm? Yes I do. If we're wrong, I'll be shocked because that man is literally a vessel of smiles and charm around her. Is jsm interested in kjk too? I'd say yes. Jsm is harder to read than kjk, she masks a lot of things easily and can make people think what she wants them to think about her life. (Like when she said how can she marry ysc when he turned her down to have bingsu with her; if you don't know jsm, you'd think she's saying ysc rejected her so they can't get married because he doesnt like her. It's something she does, bring herself down to shut down a topic while uplifting the other person. Especially when it comes to her friends. She's never said anything bad or insulting towards ysc in the loveline but instead makes it look like she really wants him but he isn't interested in her. When they said ysc's level was low and he won't be able to satisfy her if they get together, she quickly turns around and tells the story of how sweet she found it when he grilled meat for her. She has this sort of protective nature for ysc when it comes to the loveline that she plays off as intrest in him and knows people will buy it as that). So I think when it comes to JSM's feeling and reactions, people need to look deeper. It's said her eyes can look sad when she has on the brightest smile. Same way she can easily mask off her attraction to someone as indifference. But same with the sad eyes, that mask slips off once in a while. Jsm is very chatty around kjk and funny enough not even for the show but for him because we never hear whatever words they whisper to eachother. She always leans in and whispers a joke or something when she's beside him like she just can't help herself. I have noticed out of all the members, kjk is the one she has the most side conversations with when she's standing beside him. Let's not forget how easily and eager she was to let ysc and lks try the couple dance for the fan meeting with her but was ridiculously and happily shy when it came to kjk. Back during the fanmeeting time, I'd say she was nursing a crush for him because of how she shy was then and little skittish. But after then and as time has grown I think her feelings have matured and become something richer. You can see it now in how easily she looks him over or can easily make jokes with him and draws him in for group hugs. Or how easily she leans into his side when he puts his arm around her and can make soft quips about him in his presence like she's done it forever. 

 

If kookmin have feelings for eachother really, I don't think ysc is of any bother to either of them because from whatever I have seen, it's all for show. Their problems will be with eachother and whether they can make it work for the long run.

I'm going to make a bet ! I bet the loveline is officially over.

 

Here me out, and this is not a theory (lol). 

 

First, they cut the moment when they dance together (and it was teased) which makes no sense at all. 

Second, the huge discussion with Sukjin. This literally felt like they were acting out what people think, Sukjin acting as the public talking to Somin, that way they give her a way to answer the public in a way. 

Third, the fact they both (especially Somin) ruled out the relation.

 

Finally, KJK words. I don't know about Kookmin, and it doesn't matter but the way he told Haha to stop forcing it.... I think he thought it was going to be edited out, but i'm pretty sure they just went full "let's stop the loveline" because maybe something happened ? i don't know about this. 

 

Anyway, here's my bet !

I think the same 100%.

Sechan almost always avoids somin when she is going to touch him. If he really felt something he would never avoid it. Look at KJK it's just the opposite. Sechan is simply now following the game.

When I was a spartace fan even if they always denied it (even in other shows or interviews) I thought they did have something. But until you realize that the years pass and their relationship never advances. just friendship.

With Chanmin everything is so false, precisely because YSC has always been resounding with respect to JSM.

For me Kookmin has a very high percentage of being real.

- KJK only laughs when they tell him something about them
- JSM quickly changes the subject
- RM members ignore things like the song they sang together, the book of JSM, etc ...
- KJK and JSM always talk about meeting with YSC, they always invent something.
- KJK gets very nervous when talking about something related to JSM.
- etc...

It's all so mysterious ...

I think the LL will stop for a while i dont think its will stop forever. its will continued...

 

Preview next episode KJK-YSC team up together without JSM and the akwardness of this recent episode hope wont really effect they real life relationship.

 

I believe the RM PD will bring the beautiful/ Handsome guest to bring back the LL by creating the jealousy between them  or doing a mission like Quiz Memorable CF to create a Moments.

 

This ChanMin LL only stop if one of them finally get married as simple as that, not dating because we knew that MC LL didnt stop when SJH dating CEO (MC LL only stop for while) also the same thing happen to LKS-JSM (KwangMin) they didnt stop tease this two especially during the SBS Award 2018 until LKS revealed hes dating LSB over 5 month  already.

 

But i believe in KookJeonJeon, as long as they happy and if KJK-JSM keep this kind of relationship i think they gonna be Real soon,  i just got a good feeling about it ^_^

Hi,

 

Sorry, I wouldn't call him a fool for that because different people have different styles of love. For example, in the famous 5 love languages, if your love language is gifts, others may not speak the same language with you. I just predict based on what I think KJK's character is like though the equation is incomplete because it only considers YSC and KJK but not JSM or even other members.

 

Perhaps KJK is not as confident in himself as people see him on-screen, that's why he kept thinking he needs to prepare himself better/more and end up losing his gf. So I think that it is just going to be a huge "Aww...pity you missed out on her" should KJK miss out on JSM. Of course, this is on assumption that they both have feelings for each other.

 

For me, I tend to give lesser credit to what we see on-screen (foreground/focus) and prefer to give more credit to behind-the-scenes or if on-screen, when it is in the background or the focal point is not on it. Best example I can think of immediately: Remember the pre-fanmeeting episode where Kookmin is sitting on the bench without any space in between in the background?:wub: 

Or the various accounts of 'eye-witness' that commented that while filming, Kookmin tends to gravitate to each other and take good care of each other off-screen.

 

My preference is to give higher weightage to such moments rather than on-screen because entertainers have to enact their persona on-screen so it may not be a true representation of them. Look at Suk Jin, whose persona is a grumpy, stingy old man. The real JSJ? Very friendly with the members, even those junior than him. And definitely NOT stingy - the recent fortune-telling episode: when he hears his good prediction, the first thing he tells the members is that he will treat them to a meal (perhaps the money he hid from wife?):D

 

Thanks.

My opinion may be less popular, I dont know how RM and staff are going to keep going with fish bowl memory and ignorance. They may end up continuing Chan-min loveline until something is balanced or happened for a reason. I think Sechan needs time and direction to become more independent with screen time on his own terms and chemistry with other members. His chemistry with Kwangsoo has changed a bit but he is still rude to Kwangsoo as part of persona has adjusted and changed a bit that it started to work quite well especially the part when they did the gorilla and polar bear game, they were so funny. It is beyond perfection. Guess whose name is it? It is perfect for Sechan and Kwangsoo when they two compete for whose half brain is dead. It had a hard start but it eventually improved. When they were very close with Somin as makanes following Jong Kook around, Sechan, Kwangsoo, and Somin have great dynamics with Jong Kook all together. It brings a lot of fun to watch them. Sechan's screen time improved. Chan-min loveline also improved his screen time and trending in naver and comments. Chan-min loveline started to die down a bit, but Jong kook butted in, it started to improve again. I think they are doing because of the timing to keep Sechan in. 

 

I think Chan-min loveline will die down when Sechan finds his place independently, and also be able to attract female guests on his own accord. It happens before that many girls didn't want to couple with kwangsoo because of his pabo image. There is a need to improve Sechan's image for RM and persona. You really can tell that somin has protectiveness over Sechan that they are friends first then colleagues. She did the same for Kwangsoo. I was Kwangmin's fan, I really saw how Somin was able to help Kwangsoo's image less pabo but an actor with comedic side of him while Jaesuk and Haha always consider him full fledged comedian turned to actor, but still comedian. Somin's partnership did make kwangsoo more attractive to the girls who like to be with someone who has sense of humour. Kwangsoo also takes care of somin so well that they rely on each other a lot. It really changed his image. Somin is trying to do the same for Sechan. They are her friends, and they hang out with each other a lot with a lot of comfort and trust in each other. 

 

I in unpopular opinion, I do think Somin has little feelings for Kwangsoo a bit early on. Kwangsoo is also slow to feel it, but he tends to be very shy in real life. It took him some and several meetings with Subin to be able to go on a date. Subin has said several times that she likes Kwangsoo. Somin in a way, I think stopped her feelings for him when her fortune with kwangsoo is not destined to be together. But they remain compatible and close. I think she started to help with bringing Subin and Kwangsoo together. I think her feelings for Kwangsoo stopped after 2018 forecast. Somin follows her fortune as a guide to someone she is destined to be with. After fortune telling forecast, Somin and Kwangsoo remain working together and driving each other nuts. The later on, they become more distant and going into different directions. Somin took love frog image making her more independent. Kwangsoo stepped back to continue his way but sometimes follows Jihyo. It started to fade when Somin became more independent and thrive well. Then early 2019, Kwangsoo revealed his dating news. Somin and Jong kook became so much closer around early spring of 2019. I think they became closer after Kook-min revealed whether to keep secret or not. The honeybee episode came later on that Kook-min became close. Sechan revealed their coffee date. I was very surprised that Kwangsoo want to make it look like it is Jong kook who doesn't want to date, Jong Kook just reacted negatively that he didn't want Somin to get the wrong idea. Jong kook finally remembered they were in camera. But if you go fast forward, Jong Kook's ideal setting for a date is being surrounded with friends. He didn't like going alone as if it was potential date. Somin did ask for hangout. Jong Kook had to create a setting. There is something inconsistent in their stories because Kwangsoo, Sechan, Jong kook, and Somin all have different ideas to interpret the story. I think Somin felt the courage after the Clan secret episode to become closer to Jong kook. A lot of kook-min happened in that episode that Jaesuk even felt it. Then there comes Jong kook's solo concert and his posts on Somin's SNS. Kook-min moments become more consistent, but it became more intense preparing for Korean fan meet with kookmin's intense couple dance. Everything in choreography is perfectly innocent until the couple dance. Everyone is like pretending it is just a dance. Somin and all of us really do think it is quite intimate. Jong Kook and Somin really achieve the chemistry in that dance. Who really approves the dance? I am sure Jaesuk, PD, and staff, and all approves of it beforehand. Somin somehow could not take it at the moment, she was burning up. HaHa started to take action to remind her that she cannot go on if she likes Jong kook. It works it out that there is nothing more than that. All professional as possible. In reality, how many times, and they even show how many times the two had to practice the couple dance off camera. I could go on.... getting the feeling that RM and its staff are playing cupid on the two. They could have used chan-min as a cover but also improve sechan's screen time when Kook-min got too intense. The more intense or obvious kook-min moment is, they need distraction so the the moments will continue. The better cover,  more excuse to share kook-min moments. However, Chan-min goes out of hand when Sechan changed his stance. Like I said before about HaHa, he tends to provoke Jong Kook sometimes. Sechan is provoking Somin too that he knows or may know she doesn't have feelings for him. He caught Somin off guard several times when he agrees or accept her advances. It feels like it allowed Jong kook to butt in to calm them down. Jong Kook started to interact with them more. Somin seems to calm down to go on with Chan-min loveline but still sticks to Jong Kook. He helped to create the balance to somin emotionally in reality. The food truck story when Jong Kook and HaHa made it as if it was Sechan. Sechan was so annoyed and even told Somin beforehand that it was the two doing. If he likes Somin, he wouldnt explain to her. Somin also explained it, and she was standing close to Jong kook and even pat his arms. She was standing close to him. I mean, is that too intimate? It creates a balance for variety. They went from helping each other to secretly torturing Sechan. It was so funny to see him squirm and panic. 


Sechan's way of denying is not being in denial, but Jong kook way of denying is making him in denial because he couldn't answer correctly. Sechan is very sincere explaining things. He was sincere with interview that there is nothing between them. Somin knows he would answer like that, but she had to protect him first. Somin always make it her job to help everyone especially her best friend. 

 

In rule of thumb in friendship, friends usually comes before relationship. If a person choose to marry someone, he or she also have to accept their family and friends. There is an expression that marrying a person is like marrying his or her whole family. It relates a lot to someone who marries to a family of high caliber. It is very similar of how Jong Kook decided to help chan-min loveline. If he really cares about them and know they like each other, he would leave them alone. Jaesuk, HaHa, or Kwangsoo can help them more than Jong Kook. No matter how he tried to help his friends being third wheel to dates, he always get the girl to fall for him. I think Jong kook is supporting chan-min is all business. In reality, I think he is trying to calm Somin down by being around her more often so she can move forward to help Sechan and RM's rating. It also protects their natural chemistry. Hiding kook-min feelings could have taken toll on them on and off screen. Also Jong Kook is embracing Sechan even more than ever. He calls him him up, and get new variety shows with him. It is like in reality that he accepts Sechan being part of somin's life as he will also be part of his too. He wouldnt want Somin to give up her friendship for love. In consideration, he made an effort to be closer to her best friend so they all can be happy. I think Jong Kook started to become lax with his rules depending on situation that he fully can trust his true love that she will always be loyal to him even though she has male best friend who can hang out with them or maintain close friendship over the time. 

 

It reminds me of 2018 fortune teller telling Jong kook to drop his rules and analytical way of finding his wife. Fortune teller asked him to stop analysing too much and using old the rules. He asked him to learn to change and embrace the change in time of 2018-2019. Change actually a blessing to Jong kook in 2018 that he moved out, and became more independent that he could find a wife soon. But also change his set of rules, mannerism, or etc. to open his mind little more. The more desperate he is, the more open he is to any possibilities. Then 2020, fortune teller told him that change has been a blessing to him, but it is time to stop changing, and go for more stability and have conservative approach is like he is going back to his analytical mind after all the changes to be able to see things more clearly.

HH to Kyung-hwan: You're thinking like the staff.

 

 

 

Didn't HaHa just admitted that Chan-min is totally business? He admitted for making things uncomfortable when he tried to create loveline. Not just sake to bring them together but making them more uncomfortable by knowing that they may not have feelings for each other. It goes very different when HaHa scold at Somin for being too embarrassed to dance with Jong Kook. He tried to help her to overcome the feelings and become more comfortable with Jong Kook so they move forward with the dance. He is like telling her that she can't dance with him if she has feelings for him. It helped her to overcome it and dance with him as if she doesn't have feelings for him at all like she deals with Kwangsoo and Sechan. That kind of comparison is quite strange. It does show that she has feelings for Jong kook, not the makanes. It was thanks to HaHa that she could move forward to work closely with Jong Kook. That's totally opposite of what he did to others. A lot of us didn't realise that HaHa is staying quiet because he wanted to let it be, and not get too awkward or distant. Jong Kook is not ready to reveal his feelings yet. Jaesuk is actually more bold. And we got no answer but laugh and threats from Jong kook. it is like he is avoiding the right answer for weirdest reason. HaHa just kept quiet. He knew if he said something, he will make this uncomfortable and weird. 

 

He said Kyung Hwan is being like staff-- everyone and HaHa knew the staff has always been savage and strategically thinkers. The staffs aren't famous for matchmaking on screen.
