first of all, ༼;´༎ຶ ༎ຶ༽ ༼;´༎ຶ ༎ຶ༽ because thank you so much! & wow & i never thought i can ever change someone’s shipping ways. that’s like the ultimate persuasion so omfg & wow & wow- an honor.
second of all, DON’T BE SCARED~ unless we stalk them 23/24 hours of a day, there’s no way of knowing how their relationship truly stands. during MAMA era, they promoted sooo much (hence, more interactions) & that’s why it may seem like things have changed. but imo, i think they’re actually interacting more if you consider quality over quantity. it’s not how many moments, but what they do that really matters.
kris is obviously a super serious dude. in c-radio, both lay and kris himself admitted kris is a serious, normal person. even on numerous accounts, people have labeled him as such. but with chanyeol he’s all-
and to chanyeol, kris is damn weird as hell.
of course kris is capable of being weird (he always is tbh) but he goes out of his way to be weird with chanyeol. it’s actually really really REALLY cute.
kris prides himself as an honest man and there has been more than one occasion where he praises chanyeol for his looks. i think kris genuinely thinks chanyeol is handsome and that’s why he praises him so so much. (the feeling is mutual because chanyeol says even as a man, he thinks kris is handsome. check and mate.)
but there is a pretty big distinction between chanyeol’s relationship with kris in comparison to the other members. people keep forgetting kris is A WHOPPING TWO years older than him. that doesn’t seem like a lot but kris stresses being a hyung over anything! that’s why he constantly reminds the other members HE’S KRIS HYUNG!
but chanyeol respects kris. he always calls him hyung and that’s why kris dotes on him so much. of course chanyeol won’t act with kris the way he acts with beagle line or the other members of his mental age. but with kris, there is obviously admiration. if you watch as many kris fancams as i do, you’ll notice chanyeol leans on kris a lot. both physically (because kris is taller which is rare for someone as tall as chanyeol) and socially (especially in chinese/english speaking countries where chanyeol has to rely on kris the most). it’s something that’s really hard to fake. and that’s saying a lot considering how fan-servicey chanyeol is.
overall, i’ve never seen their relationship change negatively at all. this post is so long and it would be so much longer if i didn’t stop myself now! that’s how many things i can gif from just this era alone (!!!) i have too many krisyeol moments on my excruciatingly low disk space & that’s because they actually interact A LOT A LOT.
(after this part, kris pats chanyeol’s hair with his hands!!! & everyone has seen the following gifs where kris and chanyeol camera-whore and kris tries to bite chanyeol’s finger~) although there’s age and other obvious differences, they have their similarities too. they’re tall, they’re rappers, and they’re both pretty confident guys. that’s why they get along so well. hence-
!!!!!! AND !!!!! щ(ಠ益ಠщ) щ(ಠ益ಠщ) щ(ಠ益ಠщ)
overall, people are starting to dwell too much that there’s not enough krisyeol moments. let me guarantee that kris and chanyeol will always interact and there will always be krisyeol. whether people ship them or not, their close relationship is pretty hard to deny don’t you think?
