For any drama fan, the kiss scenes between the OTP are definitely some of the most anticipated ones. These kisses fall under a wide range of categories: funny, sad, romantic, angry and even weird. But if there’s one thing that we can agree on…if a kiss scene is done well, it will forever live on in our drama memory.
So, what was your favorite or the most epic kiss scene you’ve ever seen?
Anna: Although I only very recently watched the beloved 2011 romcom, Greatest Love, I can say with certainty that one of the kiss scenes between Gong Hyo Jin and Cha Seung Won landed the #1 spot for me. The kiss that I’m talking about is the one shared by the OTP after Dok Go Jin (Cha) is led to believe that Goo Ae Jung (Gong) has chosen the second lead over him. But, twist! Of course, she’s only putting on a show for him to purposely drive him away.
As he’s silently processing his heartbreak in the car, she realizes that she loves him too much to give him up. You go, gurl! She walks up to his car window and stares at his sad but handsome face until he opens his eyes to see her crying. Dok Go Jin rolls down the window, reaches out so that half his body is out the car and grabs her into THE most romantic and epic kiss I’ve seen. The combination of the music, acting, and story had me in tears. TEARS. And that is how you do a kiss scene, ladies and gentlemen. (Fun Fact: This kiss scene won for “Best Kiss Scene” at the 2011 MBC Drama Awards!)
Estelle: This was a really difficult choice for me. There was the famous coke kiss in Lie to Me, the MANY kisses in It’s Okay, That’s Love. Then there’s the kiss in the street in Boys Over Flowers I’m fawning over again after watching it recently with our friend-whom-we-are-trying-to-convert-into-a-fan. And let’s not forget the roll and tumble in Huan Zhu Ge Ge though neither Anna nor I could remember if it resulted in a kiss.
Ultimately though I think I will have to give it to Gu Joon Pyo’s swoop-in kiss with Geum Jan Di. I mean that was THE moment when he realizes he loves her too much to just drive away because his evil mother is grabbing onto him. He stops the car, breaks free from his mother, gets out (leaving the door open to boot, boo-yah) and closes in on Geum Jan Di. In that moment, only she mattered and only she existed in his world. And that kiss sealed their love for each other and solidified the beginning of their story. Let’s just say it was a pretty epic kiss.
