or the love story of Choi Minho & Lee Donghae
» the boys
Choi Minho (최민호)
Minho is one of the main rappers in SHINee. He was born and raised in Incheon and was discovered at the "2006 S.M. Casting System". Before debuting with SHINee, Minho modeled for Ha Sang Baek's "Seoul Collection F/W 08-09" in March and has also appeared in SNSD's music video for Gee. He is currently active with SHINee and Dream Team 2 and as a recurring guest on Star King. Affectionately known in fandom for being a hyung-whore, he is close with many older idol members in SM.
Lee Donghae (이동해)
Donghae is a member of Super Junior and its China-focused subgroup Super Junior M. He is one of four lead dancers in Super Junior, but also contributes in vocals, rap, and general cheer. He was born in Mokpo and signed a contract with SM Entertainment after he won the Best Outward Appearance award at the third annual SM Youth Best Contest. He starred in Super Junior's film, Attack on the Pin-up Boys, and is currently active with his band and subgroup. Fandom tends to acknowledge that Donghae is widely loved, both in fandom and in the entertainment industry, indicated, for example, by the ample amount of skinship.
So why do we love these two together? What is it in particular that makes them stand out from all the other boys they obviously love? Well, they're both attractive, they're both insanely cute, and they're both - apparently - utterly incapable of not touching each other if they're within touching distance. The number one factor, however, has got to be how close they are, and how they are unashamedly so.
THE C O N F E S S I O N
A definitive moment of the Minho/Donghae ship:
It's hard to make it more official than that! Romantic background music and everything~ :)
THE T O U C H I N G
Both Minho and Donghae are famous for skinshipping, of course. But the amount of touching that goes on between the two of them? That's a fair bit ridiculous. See for yourself:

THE S H A R I N G
And why does Minho have Donghae's ipod?Minho’s old-looking MP3 was actually Donghae’s. Donghae really loved it because it was his 1st ipod that he bought with his own money, but he gave it to Minho cos Minho really wanted the older ipod version compared to the newer ipod touch gen. → source
Don't resist the adorable - you know you can't!
It is incredibly gauche to rec my own fics, so I apologize in advance, but I cannot for the life of me find fics about them by anyone else. Please let me know if you find some!

Donghae reduces Minho to being disgustingly sweet, in Jonghyun's opinion.
