So as you progress in your kdrama addiction you will find that you will start dissecting everything about a drama. What clothes they wear, what phones they use, the style/cut/color of their hair. And most importantly - how good was the skinship in the drama. Was it something that I am going to rewind 50 times. Am I going to put the clip in my youtube playlist for kdrama kisses and romantic moments (not that I am in any way admitting i have such a folder because that would just be crazy)? So in this post we are going to not only going to delve into my favorite and least favorite kisses, but are going to add a few kissing categories along the way. Because if you are reading this blog you are probably overjoyed to be watching clips of kdrama kiss scenes..........admit it ......... if only by adding them to your own super secret youtube kissing clip playlist.
Most Memorable Kisses
BEST KISS/SKINSHIP/BEDROOM SCENES OF THE YEAR AWARD.
#1 My all time favorite kiss of the year was actually on a drama that was more of a gritty noir action drama known more for its dark plot and characters then its romance. But this kiss/bedroom scene that followed was EPIC and wins hands down:
Heartless City/Cruel City (Jung Kyung Ho and Nam Gyu Ri)
#2 This next kiss was in a drama that was mostly overlooked this last year. Although it had its faults here and there, no one can deny that the skinship in this drama was truly well done. It had that tiny hint of this is so wrong I am married and dont know you yet it feels so right like you are my dead first love crazy obsession feel that makes for a good kiss.
Shark (Kim Nam Gil & Son Ye Jin) - the kiss scene starts at 30 sec. could not find a better clip.
#3 Our third kiss of the year goes out to a younger actor who obviously knows his way around a kiss. In Potato Star the Earth (with South Korea at the epicenter) is about to be hit by a huge meteor from Space. And what do you do in that moment you are about to die... Well if you are Yeo Jin Goo you start making out with your hot next door neighbor.
Potato Star 2013QR3- Ha Yeaon Soo & Yeo Jin Goo
#4 This kiss was at the very end of one of my favorite dramas of the Year. Secret (Secret Love) was nothing if not intense and every moment the OTP were together on screen we were enthralled to see what they would do next. But it was the last scene of the drama that has our best kiss #4.
Secret Love (Hwang Jung Eum & Ji Sung)
#5 This Noona romance stole us away into a world where a younger man can totally romance and get the girl. Thinking he was going to be leaving her forever he decides to let her know about his love in the most direct way possible. From the waist grab, to the kiss, and the tear at the end this kiss was the best goodbye kiss of the year.
I Hear Your Voice ( Lee Jong Suk and Lee Bo Young)
The Kisses that left us going EH?????????EWWWWWWWWWWW???????? Or in some cases WHAT THE HECK YOU STUPID ACTRESS....... WRITERS............ DIRECTORS
So I will admit that usually if a show has a bad kiss I just gloss over it. As long as the writing is good I am not going to can a drama or actor on a kiss. However there has arisen one actress that has proven herself to the "THE WORST KISSER IN KOREAN HISTORY"!!!!!!!!!! Park Shin Hye has been paired up with some of the hottest actors (not to mention they are all proven kissers) and yet she always looks as if she is about to throw up and or rotting fish flavor is wafting from the guys lips. It is getting to the point where I dread her being the leading actress because I know that somehow she will ruin the make out scenes. And this year has been nothing different. Paired up in two different dramas she has succeeded in kissing her way out of the viewers hearts.
Flower Boy Next Door (Yoon Shi Yoon & Park Shin Hye) - notice the absolute lack of movement on her part.
