ENHYPEN AS ROMANCE TROPES
genre: pure fluff
notes: Hello! This is my first time doing this kind of Enhypen Reactions for you all, but I really hope that you guys enjoy this and your feedback for this is always appreciated everyone<3
❝ LEE HEESEUNG ❞
friends to lovers trope
I think this classic romance trope favorite matches Heeseung ( A/N: in my opinion only! ) Idk why, but as I see Heeseung as that friend who has always been there at your worse and best. He's that friend who you always turn and rely to when you need them– not knowing that, your said best friend sees you in a different light. Not as just a best friend, but more than just a best friend...
You may not notice it but...
Heeseung fell for you. He fell first, he fell in love with his best friend
“I realized that I'm in love. It's always been right in front of me.” — Lee Heeseung
❝ PARK JONGSEONG ❞
the boy who takes care of you trope
As Jay is a person who takes care of everyone dear to him, I think this romance trope suits him the best. I see Jay as that person whose there to lend a hand to you whenever you need it– and he's also the person who's always there to take care of you when no one will
The romance? Taking care of you is Jay's love language in this trope, it's his pure love and affection towards you in actions
“I just want to take care of you...and love you.” — Park Jongseong AKA, Jay
❝ SHIM JAEYOON ❞
the boy next door trope
For me, Jake is the definition of a boy next door. For me, personally, you would be that bubbly and energetic person, while Jake is your quiet yet academic fanatic type of neighbor. Interaction was very little in his dictionary that when you went up and talked to him one day, Jake was all the more surprised
Of course, being the open kind of person, you befriended Jake despite all the walls he put up for you– that in the end, it all just went down because he's done it. He's fallen, he's fallen for the person who was the first ever one to ever approach him despite many not wanting to befriend him as of the claims they had made about his cold demeanor and by his attitude
But, you, someone who was just next door, despite very little interaction between the two of you, you were able to lit something in him that he has never felt before
And for Jake, he's learned love. He may be an academic fanatic, but falling in love was something he has yet to feel than just the feeling he feels towards academics
“I know you aren't perfect. But it's a person's imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.” – Y/N to Jake
❝ PARK SUNGHOON ❞
a fake relationship trope
I had a hard time choosing for Sunghoon's, but settled for a very cliche one that for me, somehow fits him– and that is the Fake Relationship trope one!
One of you might need a date for a wedding or might need someone to help you fake a relationship because your friend had claimed that they are your boyfriend/girlfriend and wanted to do a double date with you and theirs
And in desperation, Sunghoon may be a complete stranger who you make a deal with or a friend you request help from since they're the first or the very last ones to pop into your mind! For whatever reason or event you need Sunghoon to fake a loving relationship with you, you two are compelled to pretend to love each other– until it becomes a reality!
“This was supposed to be fake...but shit, I'm really falling for you.” – Park Sunghoon
❝ KIM SUNOO ❞
second chance romance
You and Sunoo were maybe just not enough for your other halves, or maybe cheated on, or maybe they just fell out of love, or they got tired– and because of that, you guys were given a second chance and met each other on the way
Of course, you guys became friends because you guys had one thing in common; you both broke up with your partners, may it be because of them cheating, they fell out of love, or they just got tired and etc, you guys met ways and created a bond and became friends
And that's where it all leads to, though the pain and the hurt is still there, you both know the feeling in your chest that you wished would never come back, and that is Love. You guys both fell for each other, but is just afraid of loving again because you both are afraid that the same happenings of your exes will happen again if you two get together
And the question of “Will it ever work out?” would flood your mind, but in this trope– sometimes, love needs a second chance because it wasn't ready the first time around. It needs a second chance in order for you to find the person who'll never let you go unlike the first who just wasn't ready to hold yours for eternity
“Sometimes, all you need is a second chance, because time wasn't ready for the first one.” – Kim Sunoo
❝ YANG JUNGWON ❞
forced proximity trope
This common romance trope can encompass everything from you and Jungwon being stuck together for a project, or having to work together for the same goal, or to being the best man and bridesmaid at a friend's wedding
Maybe you and Jungwon just so happened to be absent on a class day and just so happened that the teacher decided that you two become group mates instead, or maybe you and Jungwon became the best man and the bridesmaid of some close friend's wedding at that you guys have to be together at all times, or maybe you guys just got stuck in the elevator together and found out that you guys are gonna be stuck there for a few days– or maybe a few weeks hahaha!
But in this trope, anything that forces you and Jungwon to stay in each other's sights and presence for a time– and so, to get to know each other and fall in love– counts in this Forced Proximity trope!
You guys might just be shy or maybe resist each other at first, but trust me, in this trope, you guys would just end up falling in love with each other in no time!
“I'm just gonna be with her till the end of all this, yeah...just that...” – Yang Jungwon
❝ NISHIMURA RIKI ❞
enemies to lovers trope
And last but not the least, the Enemies to Lovers to trope! Another classic yet common romance favourite tropes of the homies and friends!
You guys might think you hate each other– but when you and Niki really get to know each other, you guys will discover that there's a fine a line between love and hate. Hmm, let's say that you and Niki are both dance fanatics– since Niki is one in real life ngl, and you both become enemies as you both are also the most complimented yet well known dancers everyone around has probably known
In this trope, the readers will expect that there may be good reasons behind yours and Niki's enemy status– and equally good reasons that you two should move on from it. Perhaps you guys misjudged each other, or believe another person’s assessment of their character. Or maybe there are two sides to every story, and neither of them have all the facts....in the end of it all, it's clear that you and Niki could never hate each other forever
Because who knows, maybe one of you might just fall for their enemy~
“We hate each other....right? There's no way I could....love my enemy.” – Nishimura Riki
