    You forgot the epic letdown of a kiss between Rain and Song Hyekyo in the last episode “Full House.” That kiss had me raging at how bad it was. Or that horrible kiss between Yunho and Go Ara in “Heading to the Ground.” I was all, “Girl, Yunho of effing Dong Bang Shin Ki’s kissing you. Take advantage!”

    I loooooove the “Goong” and “Coffee Prince” kisses. Yoon Eunhye’s a lucky girl. Another new favorite of mine was Jaejoong and Wang Jihye’s kiss in “Protect the Boss.” Girl just grabbed him and kissed the hell out of him. Loved it.

    I have to agree that 
    Yoon Eun-hye’s kissing scenes are the best. Is it because she’s a good kisser? Even her kiss in Lie To Me was the only good thing that came out of that boring drama. Honestly, the Flower Boy Ramyun shop kiss I felt that only Jung Il woo was the only one doing the job. In fact, the kiss scene from the other flower drama “Me too, Flower” was much better and deserves a mention.

    loved the foam kiss in sega ( along wif the sit-up scene which is better than much of the kiss scenes out there ) , def very innovative n cute , but would only work wif guys looking like hyunbin so yeah … 
    kisses in ” the world they live in ” r well done too , hyunbin n song hye kyo def had great chemistry together , even though the drama wasnt that successful 
    and def agree wif goong n coffee prince ( esp CP , my all time fav kdrama ) , kisses need to be like that , not just the awkward touch of the lips n then the camera starts spinning n zooming the hell out of the scene 
    gong yoo needs to go back to drama land , we need more of that hotness on screen !!!!

    I would say lots of kisses in K-dramas involve the circulating camera and the music as well as just closing the eyes and lips connected for 30 seconds. Goong’s kiss was the most intense and convincing for me…I was like oh my gosh, that’s some legit kissing right there. wow. usually the other ones are just freeze in time with lips together for a bit. I haven’t seen many dramas, but there were many intense kisses in Que Sera Sera, mainly because Shinwa’s Eric acted pretty well and he’s really attractive to begin with. It’s been a while since I watched a K-drama, so I forgot how each kiss scene was. Although so far, no K-dramas have surpassed the Goong kiss scene in my opinion.

    when i watched that kiss from boys over flowers, i just want to punch ku hye-sun. i mean, she looks like she’s constipated or having severe mental cramps. she’s cute and i love her, but that scene – i just want to erase from my mind.

  • http://twitter.com/Laava90 Lava

    Yoon Eun Hye really does have the good kiss scenes- Lie to me was so cute when they had their coke kiss and the one at their first couple dinner party!!
    That Playful Kiss scene was sooooo awkward, my face matched yours X__X although, the kiss in the rain wasn’t bad tbh. I thought the You’re Beautiful one was awkwardly cute though!! I love how he stops and goes ‘don’t make the pig nose’ >_<

    Man…Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Hwan were throwing down in Lie To Me with every kiss lol.

    The end kiss of My Princess was awesome…pda on a plane

    Protect the Boss was a good kiss. That imagined scene was epic lol.

    All of those open eye kisses were a fail but the WTF is 19+ Glory Jane kiss. Jang Woo was putting in work while Park Shin Hye just had her eyes open for the first 20 seconds. No chemistry and I was like, “And why couldn’t this be Eunjung?” Wait I just realized that Jang Woo gets if emotions across with those little pecks and hand holding with Eunjung …so it’s a chemistry issue…or they are real lol.

    Another WTF was Rain’s old lizard kissing…eww

      YEH and KJH just wanted to make out because nothing in that drama was going well too bad the writing and directing was on fire because their chemistry was on fire!

    Jung Il Woo’s kissing scenes makes me swoon.  Sometimes when I watch kdramas I would cheer in front of my computer screen KISSING SCENE!

    Ooooh! Some really good picks! (I was totally nodding my head with each new addition – does that make me a k-drama addict? >____<) 

    Whenever I hear "good kdrama kiss", I totally think of YEH first. That Goong kiss still remains the only kdrama kiss that had me out of my seat and squealing. Can you say HOT?! Coffee Prince and Princess's Man also had excellent scenes – there may have been minor squealing involved there too. 

    SYFBB's rooftop kiss was beautiful though! I think it should deserve a spot on your Hot list. The  focus on the hands clasping. The pan out from the rooftop to the city lights… *sigh* really made me want to get a rooftop apartment too – with such an adorably scruffy neighbour, the living arrangement looked so much fun!

    On the other hand, Dream High's first kiss between Suzy and Taecyeon was pretty flat in my opinion. The scene was nicely shot but the actors were SO stiff shooting it, I was left groaning at how anti-climatic it felt. It was only Kim Soo Hyun's heart-wretching scene that saved the whole thing for me.

    By the way, that stick figure addition at the very end was too funny. A picture is definitely worth a thousand words :D

      The dream high kisses were the most epic fails ever. I just laughed to be honest.

    The kissing scenes from Me too, flower were good. even though I cringed the first time I read about the pairing what I saw on screen was actual chemistry between the leads and the kisses were in fact kisses not just a touching lips. Big improvemeny i may say in kdrama land.

    I don’t like k-dramas very much but I do enjoy watching k-movies, and my favourite movie kiss thus far was the kiss between Rain and the protagnoist in I’m A Cyborg, But That’s Ok. The two could have kissed any way and I still would have loved it, because I adored the two of them as a sorta-couple, despite the fact that they’re both crazy.

    Shin and Chae Gyung forever number 1!!!! LOL. 

    Yoon Eun Hye really has had great kisses in her dramas. Always passionate, emotional, and tasteful. Coffee Prince was also a good one.

    That’s not to say that “make out sessions” are the only good type of kisses in dramas. 

    Sungkyungkwan Scandal had some terrific kisses because of the set-up leading to the scenes. The excitement of seeing the two main characters trapped in an “elevator” lets the audience know that something was going to happen between them without it being too cheesy and cliché. It made such a simple kiss appear so romantic and squeal-inducing. The chemistry between Yoochun and Park Min Young was undeniable. 

    And that part when Yoochu’s character left love notes in the books and Min Young’s character was picking them one by one…OMG, so cute!!!!

    On the other hand, that BOF kiss between Jun Pyo and Jan Di was not that great, IMO. Lee Minho looked like he was eating Goo Hye Sun’s whole mouth while she was so stiff and wooden and unresponsive. Blah. Even their other kisses, I felt like it was only Minho who was truly in-character and Goo Hye Sun was too reluctant/stiff to get into it.

    SNSD”s Jessica’s kiss in her drama was bad. Passionless and wooden.

    Prosecutor Princess anyone? The first kiss had the added element of surprise- well maybe not complete surprise. When I watched it I was all, ‘Now THAT is what a kiss is supposed to look like’! None of this Full House ‘seriously? no, SERIOUSLY?!’ business.  And the second kiss perfectly fit the moment- so full of tension and then suddenly bam! More of those please and less of the let’s place our lips together awkwardly and make it clear that we have no chemistry at all types!

    I did see that alot in dramas you know the frozen look on the girls with both their mouths closed, I know their acting but am I suppose to assume they’ve never done it before in the real world, it just throws cold water over any supposed chemistry they were meant to have in the drama

  • http://twitter.com/tootsieyummy tootsie yummy

    Yoon Eun Hye is a great kisser that’s why!  She isn’t like those other actress who’ll just make the guys do all the work or stand there like a corpse.  Watching those girls puckering their lips without movement is so uncomfortable.  Not being able to do a kiss scene the right way is bad acting in my opinion, cause as an actress you have to be able to get into your character and abandon any inhibitions.

    When I watched a video that was uploaded on twitter of Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Hwan during the behind the scenes footage of them kissing, my mouth just dropped at how good they both were http://twitvid.com/T6KR5 <—– the video

    I also remember in one of the BTS for My Fair Lady when Yoon Eun Hye told Yoon Sang Hyun to kiss her properly, cause he kept on messing up.  I like that she isn't afraid to speak her mind…like when she told Yoon Sang Hyun to kiss her softly and instructed him exactly how.

    It helps the male stars performance if their female co-star is very professional, doesn't act aloof or act like a dead fish.  Afterall, there's only so much a guy can do.  It takes two to tango.

    Operation proposal just had a lot of steamy kiss scenes with yoo seung ho and park eun bin. They are only teens but they almost upstaged ever adult actor. They both participated equally and their chemistry is amazing. Thank god for cable or that would have been cut. I loved city halls kissing scenes and the movie with gong yoo in finding mr destiny. I have noticed that dramas are starting to have better kissing scenes. Like even of they aren’t really hot they still attempt to look like they are kidding unlike before.

    Yoon Eun Hye is ranked as one of the best actresses in korea that is not afraid of making and kissing scenes are always the best of his dramas. I still have not seen yet an actress who does it better than her. ultimately it is the best ever.

  • http://twitter.com/MonicaDBSK Monica

     I think yoon eunhye’s got some of the best kissing scenes ever. Her lie to me kisses with kang jihwan should have been up there. Park shinhye and goo hyesun has bad kissing scenes. I watched the musical and daniel choi looked like a good kisser I would have thought that would make up for everything but no ghs just ruins it.

    I would put suzy and taceyeon’s kiss in dream high in the bad category. Her kiss with kim soohyun wasn’t that much better either but it felt better because of the context of the story and everything.

    Some other good kisses:
    Park shi yeon&Kang jihwan in Coffee House
    Lee jia&Yoon shiyoon in Me too flower
    choi kanghee&jisung in protect the boss
    kim sunah&lee dong wook in scent of a woman

  • http://profiles.google.com/simone.halo Simone La

  • http://weeatlemon.blogspot.com conanblue

    The most hilarious kissing scenes is when the couple moves their head at a snail’s pace while the camera spins around them in dramatic fashion while there’s a repetition of the process of the kiss over and over again before the lips finally touch and the soundtrack becomes suddenly loud and exciting. Oh you know what I mean. Those kissing scenes are so cliche, I swear it makes my toes and fingers curl every time. Yet they still use it. Over and over again.

    And seriously, it’s the 21st century. Shouldn’t they start, I don’t know, kissing instead of awkwardly pressing their lips against each other? Man, I wish those awkward moments can just disappear now. Since you can have people be almost naked (seriously, some of these girls barely has any clothes on), shouldn’t they be able to have a real kiss like what every girl really wants? Like a real passionate kiss? No one needs to play hockey or anything, but something real would be nice.

    seriosly !!i do not expect good kissing scenes from korean dramas.i still havent felt one that was good enough –the ones that come close would be yoon eun hye-kang ji hwan in lie to me,there is kim sun ah and cha seung hon city hall ,maybe secret garden ha ji won -hyun bin (this one was more with the chemistry rather than kiss scene same with lee dog and sun ah -they had the chemistry as well).still leaves so much to be desired,especially from girl side ..

    The reason why 2 of the best kisses are with Yoon Eun Hye is not the male actor, in my opinion, it’s Yoon Eun Hye who’s amazing… She really makes it easy for the guy to kiss her because she’s not making them uncomfortable, it’s real kisses because both of them are kissing :) I would say, all of YEH dramas have good kisses, she’s the best!

    However, I also disliked the kisses in BOF, YAB and Heartstrings. Full House kiss sucks too.

    If you want to see the good kisses, I suggest you go to this youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/zarebafied and watch the videos “outstanding asian drama kisses” (there are 3-4 videos I think) there’s all the best kisses in asian dramas! For korean ones I think the best kisses are when the actors are older than 20-25 (lol) and I believe many idols aren’t good at kissing, usually real actors do a better job (I don’t know if idols are afraid of their fans or what??). I like the kiss in Dal Ja’s Spring :D lol. Trying to promote one of my fav korean dramas XD Oh and the kiss in Shining Inheritance too :D I liked the scene :) Though the kiss was normal but it was beautiful because of that scene :D! Oh, and the kiss in Save The Last Dance For Me with Eugene, the one under the tree, love it too!!!

      ITA! Because if the guy is doing all the work while the actress is looking wide eyed an uninvolved, what’s the point.  YEH’s kiss scenes are always the best because she’s not just standing there being kissed she also doing the kissing.

    Yoon Eun Hye is the queen of drama kissing.  Seriously the girl should teach a course or have yearly seminars for all the actresses who don’t know what the hell they’re doing and for the directors who shoot these awkward kiss scenes who obviously don’t have a clue.  I wasn’t the biggest fan of Goong but boy did that kiss make up for everything that the drama didn’t deliver.  YEH in Coffee Prince ITA delivered as well.  I seriously can’t wait for her to be reunited with Gong Yoo in some onscreen pairing where she actually gets to look like a girl this time around.  Also loved her in “Lie To Me”.  YEH is just truly an actress that’s not afraid.  Kudos also go to Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, Secret Garden, IRIS, Glowing She, and Operation Proposal.  Honorable mention for the last kiss scene in My Princess just for the pure enjoyment of watching a female lead take charge.

    First disappointing drama kiss for me was Full House because it was one of the first dramas I had ever seen and after all that build up that kiss was such a let down.  The You’re Beautiful kiss was also quite disappointing especially when you can look on youtube and see JGS and PSH in a Etude House CF that obviously shows the two are quite capable of delivering.  I would mention “Heartstrings” as well but I pretty much went into that drama not getting my hopes up.  Hopefully when Yonghwa winds up in his next drama he’ll finally get a real kiss scene (more likely to happen if that show is on cable).  It makes no sense for me to name any more dramas since we already know disappointing drama kisses are the standard.

    Notable scene – “Personal Preference” Lee Min Ho and Son Ye Jin’s “game over”

  • Literati Tempo

    I feel like kiss scenes also have a lot to do with the comfort level of the actor/actress. Some people are married Han GaIn (TMTETS) for example, and even though it’s a job she’s not comfortable getting it in with her co-star, Some people have age differences, some people are idols and have to worry about crazy fans. KHJ just got kissed by HwangBo on the cheek and people were losing it, think about a good honeymoon scene SSS would lose their minds. I think some of it is the tv ratings too. I’ve seen plenty of K-movies where things were anything but tame, but more dramas come on primetime TV and have a 15+ rating so not very heavy.

    I’d love to see Song JoongKi and YEH do a kiss scene I’ve seen both of them do a good job.

       you’re right, like yoo seung ho and park eun bin who had worked together since the age of  6 years old, they feel comfortable with each other, that is why their kiss was so…hot….and yes I’d love to see Song Joong Ki and YEH do a kiss scene too, both of them are really good kisser

    I totally agree with Bethany’s article.  I just loved the drama, Goong or Princess Hours.  That kiss is my #1 fave kiss scene.  Man, when JJH kissed YEH in episode 23, I couldn’t believe my eyes!  They actually french kissed?  I had never seen that before in a Kdrama.  The chemistry between those 2 were sooooo good!  I cried when they cried about not being together, I laughed during their silly, awkward moments,( marriage bed,bathroom scene, just to name a few) and I grinned like a fool, when they kissed as a confession of their feelings for each other.  But that kiss…it was so anticipated.  It was like…jeezus…finally!  And it was worth the wait.  YEH is probably the one who tells the actor to just go for it!  The kiss has to be felt as true passion, honesty and love.

    and now they are officially dating!!! best couple of the year :D hehe i just love them!!

  • yuki kokoro

    After I’ve watch more than 7 k-drama, I have to say I don’t look too much at the quality of the kisses as I look into the actors chemistry. Honestly, sometime I would rather they don’t kiss at all instead of being forced to watch a bad kiss but it’s not something that will ruin a drama for me if their chemistry is good. And by good chemistry, I mean that when they look like at each other, you can see the love in their eyes. Not sure if it’s the right definition though…

    That being said, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them kiss in Coffee Prince. I seriously didn’t think a kiss like that was possible in a k-drama. They looked like they both enjoyed it and, most of all, they look like they both wanted it. And the girl kissed the guy! How many times that happened in a k-drama??

    So basically, until I watch more k-drama, that one kiss will be the one I will remember as the “best kiss” and, sadly, I fear I will now feel let down with many other kisses in the future…

      That actress who kissed the guy is none other than Yoon Eun Hye.  And she is know for giving the best emotional, heartfelt kisses in Kdrama.  She is the best when it comes to chemistry between her male lead.  I still think that YEH and JJH gave the best kiss in kdrama hands down!  Her cola kiss with Kang Ji Hwan was daebak too!

    the best kiss scene, so far (30 k-dramas) cap 9 “Love Rain”

  • Kate YouKNOW

    I was going to mention City Hall, but someone beat me to it.  Seriously, 
     Cha Seung Won is like the BEST drama kisser.  He was great in Best Love, too.
    Another one you didn’t mention that has two fantastic kisses in a row is the final episode of 9 End 2 Outs.  Takes forever to get there, but holy cow!  I also thought the kissing by the fridge scene in The King 2 Hearts was really great, too.

    You know what I’ve learned… a bad kiss is sometimes better than no kiss at all.
    This comes from watching older dramas that built up a lot of tension and then never released it, leaving the viewer feeling unfulfilled, (aka “She Is 19”).

    Of course, good kisses are the best, but I’ll take a light one over none any day.

    I love  the kiss between Lee Sang Woo and Sung Yuri at Feast of The Gods…very romantic and both of the actor had great chemistry. Since teen I watched so many kdrama but most of them just not as memorable as fotgs especially “the kiss”. I watched it more then 20 times maybe:). Anyway i really recommend people to watch this k drama. And sorry if my English is not very good, I am from Indonesia by the way….good day all:)

    My favorite kiss scene was Joo Won and Eugene’s kiss on the floor of Eugene’s character’s apartment in Baker King. Their kissing scene in the bar was hot even though it was also disturbing since his character Ma Joon was forcing a kiss on Shin Yoo Kyung and restrained her hands as she tried to push him away.

    The worst was Yoon Sang-hyun’s and Yoon Eun-hye kiss (if it can be considered a kiss, they didn’t move their lips at all) in My Fair Lady. It was so lame, Yoon Sang-hyun looked like he wasn’t aware that her character kisses his in that scene, he just stood there with his eyes opened and a frozen expession on his face.

    I have only seen sageuks and from those the Princess’s Man kissing scene and the Moon that Embraces the Sun where teh King pulls her seated toward him are outstanding. The difference with historical dramas is that the “appropriate” way to express raging passion seems to be for the guy (Jumong) to wrap his arm around the girl’s NECK and hold her in place on his shoulder (so she doesn’t squirm around i guess). Anyway, that and a two arm embrace, staring off into the distance seem to produce many baby princes and princesses, so I guess it must work for them.

    All of the kiss scenes in the original I Need Romance were amazing. I had never looked forward to the next episode in a drama so much. They were so damn intense and just perfect, for fucking real.

  • leslie7622

    Park shin hye isn’t a bad kisser though. I I think it’s just her character. She has a cf with jang geun suk that absolutely sizzles: http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=PCHFHeVed6g&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DPCHFHeVed6g

  • yeochin

    Add Queen In Hyun Man to the best kisses :>

  • yeochin

    great post! heading to read the comments :)

    Really great article. Tho I’m one of PSH fan. Sadly should admit she is one of the worst kisser. She need to fix it. I think she got trauma from her first kiss. She actually a really timid girl and her first kiss just like a night mare for her. After that, she forever frozen at kiss scene. Sobbing X”(

  • emiko rikua

    In regards to the Playful Kiss part.. I guess it was because of the awkwardness on their first night as married couple and.. Baek Sung Ju’s character wasn’t really the romantic type. He maybe a genius but when it comes to emotion he’s a no brainer for it/ So for me, KHJ’s portray his character well.. So for me it wasn’t really not bad. A natural thing for an unromantic person.. (hahaha, i’m so sorry I’m a KHJ fan just defending my idol)

  • jenny

    I thought the first (only?) kiss in city hunter was pretty good.I’m surprised no one has mentioned it. ive only watched a few kdramas, among them BOF and heartstrings…the kisses were so wooden that I thought for sure there was some cultural difference in Korea that maybe open mouthed kissing was inappropriate lol

  • Hira Mushtaq

    Oh my God I so totally agree with the Playful Kiss scene! During the whole scene I was like “Ummm… is he ok? What the hell’s going on?” But it also made me laugh. It didn’t send butterflies in my stomach like a good kissing scene is suppose to but the show made up for that so I didn’t mind this awkward ‘WTF’ kissing scene :P

  • disqus_Ihupc66RXW

    I see the coffee foam kiss from Secret Garden, but the kiss at the party and after they were married were also pretty realistic and hot. Also I agree that kissing from Heartstrings was terrible.. with the eyes open very creepy. So far all the dramas I have seen Park Shin- hye in her kisses are wide eyed and arms by her side. She is in this new drama and I have yet to see the kiss scene hopefully her kissing has evolved.

    The “game over” kiss in Personal Taste was a real surprise. I had a healthy respect for Lee Min Ho after watching that toe curler. To borrow an expression from someone, it drives me batty to see the unresponsive kisses. I’m giving it excuses all the time about the culture but i’m so disappointed. I love k-dramas because it’s different from US television in the sense that it’s not seasonal and it’s not all about sex. The kisses though need work. Looking at Jan Di in BOF move like a cadaver (impossible right?) was painful.

    I have no problem with one hot kiss and then chaste kisses but show some life at least. Also i’m not sure if it’s just me but after they’ve decided they are going to be a couple why are they still so stiff with each other? They are openly dating and even after the first kiss it’s like the male has to ask for permission with the creeping in bit by bit move. Finally when he touches lips (that’s all they do) the heroine’s eyes are like saucers. Really? k-dramas i love you but the rigormortis like quality to some of the acting is disheartening. Eun Hye rocks though.That girl has sass bless her heart. Would love to see her in another romantic comedy.

  • Knel dakis

    You should watch Cha Seung Won kiss – in City Hall and The Greatest Love! His is a passionate but sweet and filled with love — kiss. :)

  • seru

    all i can say is that i don’t really think that the fact that all of the kissing scenes where park shin hye took part were “bad” isn’t a coincidence, i think she’s just a bad kisser! i wonder how it will be in her newest drama with lee min ho, i really don’t want to be disappointed, i mean it’s LMH!!! ;)

    • Maiya

      I guess we now know how the kissing in Heirs turned out. I am never again hoping for good kisses in any PSH dramas.

  • fruitroll ups

    like did u guys see the kiss in “BIG”?(with the guy gong yoo from coffee prince,YES it is,he does a fine job tooxD) or the kiss in “I MISS YOU”??? (again yoon eun hye and YES she gets the BEST kisses ever and is in fact THE QUEEN of kissing scenes!!! they always put her with a fine very fine guy who kisses well too xD like in this one,shes with micky yoochun :P)

  • jingelbells

    Goong will always be the best kiss of all time for me! Ep 23 & the street kiss! It was YeH & JJH first drama & yet they kissed like there’s no tomorrow! Loved all YEH’s kisses in CP& LTM!

    Next is Queen Inhyun’s Man kisses. YIN & JHW looked so natural together. And their kisses r so steamy!

    Last would be Operation Proposal bet YSH and PEB.. those teenagers, tsk tsk. I wonder if they would end up together in real life?

  • Maiya

    Spoilers below about Boys over flowers ending:

    I will never forget or forgive BoF for the ending where he kisses her and she just stands there like a piece of wood with her arms dangling limply at her sides, not moving or reacting at all, even though they were married and expecting a baby for god’s sake!

  • Alnnmay3

    It’s kinda sad because I can’t help but wonder if some of the bad kissing rap that these actors and actresses are getting should be pushed more toward the directors. Its rare but I have seen a couple good kiss scenes from Park Shin Hye even though she gets labeled as the deer in the headlights kisser… I think it is all in how it is directed. I think the bad kissers are the ones that you can see being all over the place. I love him to death but Lee Min Ho is not someone I would want to kiss based on what I have seen in his kissing scenes. He always looks like he is trying to eat the girls face. Yoon Si Yoon and Cha Seung Won on the other hand… two very apt kissers who can bring the feeling and the technique!

  • Meimay

    I’ve watched most of the ones you mentioned except for Flower boy…. and Goong(def gonna watch this). I haven’t seen playful kiss and after seeing this kiss which made me cringe I don’t think I will be watching. I’ve got to say the taiwanese version is the best of all, the chemistry, actors, plot and kisses; perfecto, everything on point. I think Me, too flower and Queen Inhyun’s man should be on the list of best kisses too. Going to continue watching coffee prince now :)

  • Nadia Poupkova

    I love that Yoon Eun Hye is always rank as the best kisser which is obviously the true ! But the kiss in “you’re beautiful” wasn’t that bad, the first one yes because it was a surprise, but the second was good, sure the kiss itself wasn’t very good but still better than in boys over flowers, and I loved the situation, like ‘i’m gonna punch and no i’ll kiss you’… I don’t like Park shin-hye’s constant shock eyes but in ‘you’re beautiful’ I liked it…Anyway it’s almost impossible to have a good passionate kiss in k-dramas, it’s just how they work there’s nothing we can do, it’s just a different culture…

  • Aldracious Cosmodal

    Somehow, I doubt we’ll see many kisses in the rain on Korean shows, like these in American movies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOlI9T-ltAs

    I remember when the main characters in KPOP Extreme Survival kissed. I couldn’t help myself but laugh for 10 good minutes. Each time they kissed it’d be a good laugh. It was my second K-Drama so that was the moment I realised I would probably face this problem many times. Playful Kiss’ 3rd kiss (the one in the rain) was one that caught me by surprise because I thought all K-dramas would never going to go past that “peck”. Nice surprise.
