Oh, Senbo-chan, I’m pretty sure you’ve come to realized what you have started w/ this question! Just keep in mind that I’m delusional and a hard core fangirl. That said….
It all starting with this gif. I’ve never shipped real-life couples before in my life, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw that gif and my fangirl heart actually jnfjgnjdk for a second. I WAS NOT AWARE OF THIS HAPPENING IN THE KPOP WORLD. The tag beneath the gif read “Springtempo” (Bom = Spring in Korean. and TOP = Tempo) and so I went in search of the truth.
An hour or so later I was spazzing, squealing, declaring my undying love for them and praying to God for future 16D alien babies.
But WHY you ask? Well, for me it’s all in the details with these two. But since you kinda wanna know about their relationship, Ill start from the beginning.
To be honest it wasn’t entirely the very first time I heard about TopBom; thing is that ship 1st set sail as part of a Bom/GD/TOP love triangle after Bom featured with them in We Belong Together and Forever With You when she was still a trainee. The love triangle thing was more for show for the songs, so I never really payed much attention. But that’s where these Aliens get their start, where they met each other, and that’s when fans began paying attention to them together.
After that the most interaction they’ve had (that we know of XD) during the years has been during YG Family concerts/duets and now during 2NE1 TV, but those have been enough to make netizens want them both as the next WGM couple.
But they just keep having these cute little moments together that make me go sjgkjdgndkjfhd. He teases her mercilessly and she gets nervous around him, can’t even properly look him in the eye sometimes. They call each other Aliens (hence y they are called the Alien Couple) and he thinks she looks like an anime character. I think she amuses him, probably b/c he’s the 4D Prince of YG and he finally met the 8D Queen to match him. IT’S ALL IN THE LITTLE THINGS/MOMENTS I TELL YOU1!!!
- LIKE THAT ONE TIME :
- I WAS GONNA HOLD YOUR HAND BUT THEN I REMEMBERED WE WERE IN PUBLIC.
- TOP cockblocking Siwon from talking to Bom, and Bom bluntly ignoring poor Siwon.
- Bom’s ideal type is Jay-Z and TOP’s ideal type is Beyonce.
- THE INFAMOUS “WAS IT TOP?” REPLY. (Bom is told a male artist mentioned her)
- THE DELICIOUS EYE. SEX (and how Dara approves).
- AND THE GRABBING OF THE JAW AND MORE HOT EYE!SEX (JUST LOOK AT THE WAY HE LOOKS AT HER!! I WOULD’VE JUMPED HIM!)
- HOW HE ENJOYS THE JAW GRABBING.
- THE SHOULDER TOUCHING.
- THE ALIEN DANCE
- HOW FUCKING SUBTLE AND NOT OBVIOUS THEY TRY TO BE.
- THE ALIEN FIGHTS
- IN THE WAY HE SAYS HER NAME
- THE WAY HE’S SO FUCKING HAPPY WHENEVER SHE’S NEAR HIM. (Observe him during performances and those gif, he’s like jdjgkdfnhd “fuck yeah she’s here!”)
AND OF COURSE WHAT REALLY MADE EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHERS SPAZZ AND FOAM AT THE MOUTH AND BASICALLY MADE THEM SHIP THEM B/C IT IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO AFTER THIS:AND THIS:
THE GLORIOUS “OH YEAH" PERFORMANCE (Park Bom’s latest collab w/ GD&TOP. I didn’t even LIKE the song, but then I saw the performances and now..well, here we are!) THAT MADE MY FEELINGS VALID. I mean, you can argue all you want about my delusions and about seeing things where there’s nothing to see, but when you watch them, really watch them perform you HAVE to admit they have INCREDIBLE CHEMISTRY AND THERE IS NO DENYING THE WAY HE LOOKS AT HER OR THE EYE!SEX. AND THE HAND HOLDING!!!
I can’t forget to mention the hand holding, but that’s staged and everything, but you know what wasn’t? THE WAY IN WHICH HE HELD ON TO HER HAND LONGER THAN HE WAS SUPPOSED TO (starts at 7:09. hand thing happens at 7:16). THE WAY IN WHICH SHE TRIES TO BREAK FREE BUT HE JUST REFUSES TO LET GO (gif) AND THAT’S WHEN I JUST LOST IT. THERE JUST HAS TO BE SOMETHING THERE. THERE HAS TO BE! I REFUSE TO BELIEVE ANYTHING ELSE. UGH. I AM A PROUD DELUSIONAL
AND IF ALL OF THIS IS ALL IN MY HEAD, AT LEAST I CAN ALWAYS JUST BLAME IT ALL ON THE ONE REASON THAT NO ONE CAN REALLY BLAME ME FOR:
THEY ARE BOTH SMEXY AND HOT AND THEY LOOK EVEN MORE SO TOGETHER. THEREFORE, YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
*dies* it’s 3am wtf am i doing up i gots work 2morrow?
PS: This TOP Anan Interview made me think of Bom at least twice. Fist, he says his first love happened when he was 19 (We Belong Together/Forever W/ You period!) and that she was older than him (Bom is older than TOP). And he also says his favorite part of a woman’s body is the ankle and the top part of the foot when women wear very high heels. B/c he is weird. But have you seen Park Bom in heels?
I Know this was posted 2 years ago but i still love reading this TOPBOM Post!! The Feels!! OMG!
