Most Korean Dramas come down to the simple question of whether they will or won’t they. However, what Kdramas do so well allow for long stretches of yearning, wanting glances, and tons of missed opportunities. If done correctly, a great Korean Drama will always keep you guessing when that memorable kiss will happen. Kdrama kiss scenes are some of the most romantic, passionate, fulfilling, and sometimes funniest on the small screen. The key, however, is to ensure it doesn’t come too early when fans lose interest.
Moreover, creators can’t make the audience wait too long. The moment has to be just right. Now that KDramas are on Netflix you can rewatch these moments repeatedly. So what are some of the best kiss scenes in Korean dramas you can watch on Netflix?
Check out our list below, and just a warning, SPOILERS AHEAD!
Kim Soo-hyun & Seo Yea-ji – It’s Okay to Not Be Okay
This is one of the most memorable Kdrama kiss scenes of all time. Seo Yea-ji got the perfect birthday present from Kim Soo-hyun in episode 11. The great part about this scene is that Kim Soo-hyun wanted to talk and went in for the kiss. This Kdrama single-handedly changed the meaning of “Let’s talk.” If you listen very closely, you can even hear the sound of their lips as they meet. The kiss was so passionate you would think they were a couple off-screen! No wonder Kim Soo-hyun is one richest Kdrama actors working today. Can these two admit that they are dating in real life so we can make sense of this world?
Park Bo-young & Ahn Hyo-seop – Abyss
Coming in second on our list of the best Kdrama kiss scenes is from Abyss. Who did not love this kiss scene? Well, maybe just Park Hyung Sik. Is this not the best goodnight kiss scene in KDrama history? Ahn Hyo-seop was so excited he forgot to take his slippers off! This kiss has so much chemistry and passion that Ahn Hyo-seop’s ears get redder and redder the longer they kiss.
Kim Go-eun & Lee Min-ho – The King: Eternal Monarch
You can’t have a Kdrama kiss scenes list without Lee Min-ho. The first kiss was technically on the neck, and oh boy…it is the greatest neck kiss in the history of Korean dramas. Also, these two have such chemistry might not be surprising. This was a simple one-take. However, behind the scene, the director had to yell cut two times before they stopped kissing. That is how intense the scene was getting. Find the director’s cut and release it right now!
Kim So-hyun & Song Kang – Love Alarm
One of the best school Kdrama kiss scenes ever. This is one of the few Kdramas that had the first kiss scene in the first episode. This scene is so unexpected that Kim So-Hyun’s character says she has a boyfriend but seems to be enjoying the kiss. There is no pushing him off. There is a level of uncertainty and passion. The kiss is so good that it is just as impactful as the webtoon it was adapted from.
Suzy & Lee Seung-gi – Vagabond
It is not easy to have romantic drunk kisses, but Lee Seung-gi and Suzy make it happen. Seeing the girl make the first move and leave the guy baffled is also refreshing. He seems completely mesmerized by what just happened. Also, can we all admit that drunk Suzy is super cute? It could be controversial here because the characters are intoxicated, but no one seems to be taking advantage of anyone.
Son Ye-jin & Hyun Bin – Crash Landing on You
You can’t have a Best Kdrama Kiss Scenes List without having a real-life couple. While there were many memorable kissing scenes in Crash Landing on You, this kiss scene in the rain is by far the best. Their chemistry drives the plot and makes this one of the best Korean dramas of all time. The kiss was more romantic/sweet than passionate since Captain Ri isn’t 100% sure she feels the same way about him. However, these scenes leave you thinking, are they just great actors or in love with each other? We think both.
Han Ji-min & Jung Hae-in – One Spring Night
Jung Hae-in just doesn’t care if he gets stabbed. He wants that kiss! This scene leaves butterflies in your stomach with the combination of the rain, music, and the two leads. Jung Jae-in will do this to Jisoo very soon in the upcoming Korean drama Snowdrop. Will he be able to top this kiss? It won’t be easy, but Jisoo will be up for the challenge.
Shin Sae-Kyeong & Yim Si-wan – Run On
When you are bored, the best remedy is kissing. But the only thing on Yim Si-wan’s mind is Ramen. Of course not; he has other plans. Yim Si-wan is the perfect Korean Drama boyfriend. He is so nice and kind but is not a pushover. The scene is compelling and sweet as it teaches about self-love and treating yourself how you want others to treat you. The scene overall is very gentle and innocent yet also brings passion.
Kim Ji-won & Ji Chang-wook – Lovestruck in the City
This scene is so sexy. Everything from when Kim Ji-won puts Ji Chang-wook’s finders back on her lips to the sound of the blowing wind. It is followed by the cuteness of her laughing and him laying his head down in her lap out of embarrassment. The whole scene is both dreamy and unique, which is why it makes the list of the best Kdrama kiss scenes.
Shin Sae-kyeong – Cha Eun-woo – Rookie Historian
It is very hard to let someone go. However, this is where some of the best kiss scenes happen. Did any ASTRO fan ever think they would one day see Eunwoo kiss someone on screen? The kiss is so good that it gets better as the scene continues. If you watch this scene again, look at Shin Sae-kyeong’s eyes. On the first kiss, her eyes are open, but she melts into the second kiss with her eyes closed. As far as meaningful kisses go, this is one of the most meaningful kisses to date.
Does anyone else have any suggestions for the best Kdrama kiss scenes? Remember that it must beat the kiss scene from Rookie Historian, ranked #10.
