Since our first post of memorable kissing scenes, we have experienced a sufficient number of explosions of hearts and flowers to whip up another list. Here are our latest favourites.
Me Too, Flower!
Bong Sun (Lee Ji Ah) is an angry and depressed cop. Jae Hee (Yoon Shi Yoon) is a millionaire posing as a parking attendant at his own department store. When Bong Sun attempts to arrest Jae Hee in the middle of a restaurant, Jae Hee forcibly kisses her. Bong Sun’s struggling subsides by the time Jae Hee pulls away to reiterate his claim of innocence. With only his sincere eyes and his hot lips to support his claim, it appears that Jae Hee made a believer out of Bong Sun as she jumps forward to kiss him for a really long time; 60 seconds and counting by the time the scene ends. Forced kissing is a no-no, but the intensity of this odd couple made my head explode into flowers and hearts. – Junggugeo Kaenada 중국어 캐나다
Young Shin (Park Min Young) is a struggling reporter. Jung Hoo (Ji Chang Wook) is an underground courier known as Healer. When crisis hits and Jung Hoo holes up from grief, Young Shin breaks into his high-tech hiding place to console him. She finds him sick and delirious in bed, and climbs in to warm him up. When Jung Hoo comes to, he tries to drive her away repeatedly, but Young Shin won’t budge. Instead, she hugs him as he finally gives in and falls apart crying. When he pulls away, she kisses him and he kisses her back. It’s not the sexiest of kisses, what with Jung Hoo crying and barely able to stand, but this couple was so cute my head exploded regardless. – Only 만
Gyung Joon (Gong Yoo) is a teenager stuck in the body of Da Ran’s (Lee Min Jung) fiancé. Da Ran starts having feelings for her former student, and Gyung Joon confronts her about it. While Da Ran is trying to separate her hand from Gyung Joon’s, their heads draw closer together, and Da Ran melts into Gyung Joon’s kiss. Of course, when Gong Yoo is involved, hearts and flowers are a given. The cherry on top is that, when the couple separate, Da Ran is immediately stricken with guilt at having kissed another man in her fiancé’s body. Gyung Joon bluntly tells her that she cheated, then laughs at her self-flagellation. – Junggugeo Kaenada
It’s Okay It’s Love
Hae Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) is a psychiatrist who is scared of sex, and Jae Yul (Jo In Sung) is an author with OCD. They spend a lot of time arguing, but lucky for us, an equal amount of time locking lips. The best kiss for me came when Jae Yul decides to throw the protesting Hae Soo into a pond with a waterfall. They play around and splash each other, then seemingly out of nowhere, he kisses her. She’s surprised at first, but then her hands come up, her arms go around him, and she kisses him back. Gong Hyo Jin could probably generate chemistry with a block of wood, but wow, these two are amazing together. – Only
Who would have thought that Park Shin Hye could provoke anything other than frustration? Yet, with the snow falling prettily over her and Lee Jong Suk, Kdrama’s prettiest actor, the moment was ripe for romance. Her character, In Ha initially blocks a kiss from Dal Po with her hand. I never expected In Ha to drop her hand, and for Park Shin Hye to become an active participant in a kiss. And, my head exploded into disbelief over what I had just witnessed. Too bad the couple’s romantic chemistry outside of skinship failed to materialize. – Junggugeo Kaenada
Heart to Heart
Hong Do (Choi Kang Hee) is a severe anthrophobe who is treated by Yi Seok (Chun Jung Myung), a psychiatrist with family issues, in exchange for working as his gofer. After a rough day with his family commemorating his twin brother’s death, Yi Seok summons Hong Do to stop him from drinking. Hong Do, who has just had her heart broken, is drenched when she arrives at his apartment, and takes a shower to warm up. In an uncharacteristic moment of honesty, they both spill the beans about their troubles and loneliness. When Yi Seok can’t take the sadness anymore and reaches for a beer, Hong Do tries to take the can away from him. Instead, he uses the can to pull her towards him. They look into each other’s eyes as Yi Seok caresses her face, then kisses her forehead. He slowly kisses Hong Do, then stops and looks into her eyes. Yi Seok kisses her again, then pulls her to her feet, and they kiss for the third time. In the next moment, he’s helping her take her shirt off as she kisses him back. And, I’m staring at the screen in disbelief, as I watch a ridiculous character morph into a serious heartthrob. – Only
