Get ready ladies and gents because GOT7's JB and B.A.P's Youngjae will be the next set of friends to appear on "Celebrity Bromance" (Flower Boy Bromance).

Truly nothing could delight passionate fan girls more than seeing their idols engage in a so-called cute 'bromance' with a fellow idol. Well, if you are just new to the fandom and have no idea what a 'bromance' is, you definitely have lots to learn.

A portmanteau of the words brother and romance, 'bromance' is what you can call a close homosocial relationship between two men. Before your mind starts to wander into dirty territory, the word bromance is far from anything that is sexual. While many fans maybe hoping for their idols to get together in real life, bromance isn't a romantic relationship. Perhaps the best way to describe a bromance is that it is a seriously close relationship between two men that goes way beyond friendship but isn't romantic either.

In Japan and in Korea, bromance is highly encouraged mostly in the entertainment sector as a way to please the fans.

Probably one of the best ways South Korea has capitalized on bromances is the web show "Celebrity Bromance" where two idol friends showcase their close relationship, or bromance. The first pair to appear on the web show is BTS's V and Kim Min Jae and this aired many months ago. Now, Allkpop reports that the next pair to be featured on the show will be GOT7's JB and B.A.P's Youngjae.

The pair would follow after the most recent duo B1A4's Gongchan and Hongbin of VIXX.

If you didn't know, JB and Youngjae were both JYP trainees and that is exactly where they met. However, Youngjae left and transferred to TS Entertainment where he was launched as a part of B.A.P but still the two continued their friendship. According to Soompi, JB and Youngjae will appear on the show starting November 29 via YouTube or a Naver broadcast.

What do you guys think of the new pairing?
