Pairing Name: KyuMin
Super Junior’s Cho Kyuhyun & Lee Sungmin
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
The sole fact it was extremely difficult to find a picture of these 2 that was not candid, as the above photo is, or Photoshopped, obviously alludes to the fact that this pairing can not be all that legitimate.
From what we’ve observed, fans seem to get off on the slight sentimentalities these two share for each other (on rare occasions, if we may add), and the obvious fact that, generally, the Super Junior members don’t really show much love to their evil maknae, excluding Sungmin, who is known to be a very heartwarming person all around. In addition to the fact that “KyuMin” may very well be simple acts of kindness on behalf of Sungmin, Sungmin isn’t really Kyuhyun’s type. From observation, we note that Kyuhyun seems to have a soft spot for tall, skinny, sophisticated men (i.e.: Zhou Mi and TVXQ’s Changmin)- not the cute fluffy type. Where the sparkle in Kyuhyun’s eyes is most obvious is when he is around one of the aforementioned two, and he seems to treat Sungmin as he would treat any of his other group mates. The only reason Kyuhyun does seem to show a bit of favoritism towards Sungmin is due to Sungmin’s accepting and platonic invitation that he so extends towards Kyuhyun; after all, why wouldn’t you prefer someone who doesn’t mind you?
The sole reason we decided to give KyuMin a “6” is because Super Junior an incredibly close group, and, for the most part, any pairing born from the members will most likely start off at a “5” or “6” in terms of closeness.
KyuMin seems more to us as just a purely fan-made pairing. Sure, these two must be close; they come from the same group and relatively seem to favor each other (although that really is more of a one-sided thing with Kyuhyun going at it). However, with the monstrous load of creepy Photoshoped pictures and smutty fanfics, fans seem to have taken this mere friendship way too far. There also isn’t much evidence for any real support either- other than Super Junior’s bizarre mini-drama series in which Super Junior tackled the task of delivering a “dangerous friendship” mini-drama, where SerialKiller!Kyuhyun pretended to be gay in order to get close to Sungmin, we have no idea on what basis KyuMin arose.
