Hello! I like both groups but I'm not very familiar, and I'm really curious about the ships. In your opinion, which pairing is the famous one and why? And what about other pairings? I know you list your ships in the faq but I want to know why... (ummm for example people tend to ship because the position, or the same age, or similarities, or simply biasXbias). Thank you!
Hello :) Thanks for your interest and asking :)
I’m going to try and explain this without being biased. Due to the fact that hellobeat isn’t that popular of a ship it’s a bit hard to not be because I only know a handful of people who ship them around me.
In my opinion, I think that the most popular pairing would be Minhyuk/Alice - I’m not sure if this is because I ship them and so therefore if you look in the tags for hb you’d mostly find edits from this blog about them - however, I’m hoping the notes each posts gets says something as well. They’ve also got quite a few stories/fics written on them already from a few different authors. Why? I personally have no idea what makes one edit more popular than the one after that or before that :\ I’m seperating this answer from Why I ship them by the way if that makes sense. I have no idea why they’re popular, I can only assume they’re most popular based on the amount of fics/edits/notes I’ve seen :) comparative to the other ships.
I also think that in terms of popularity, Ara/Hyunsik are also popular, possibly Ilhoon/Yooyoung or Ilhoon/Lime and Nara/Eunkwang/Sungjae. This is also based on edits/fics/notes etc.
As for why I ship - you’ve basically listed all or most of the reasons why I ship. I’m no different to a lot of people :) but the way I explain it to be not so much why alone but mixed with how. I stan both groups equally and so I’ve come to understand bits and pieces of their personalities. So when I make edits, or write fics this is how I view them or would write them. If that makes sense… :3
But to not make a whole wall of text I updated the FAQ here for you!
