Another K-drama couple whose fans started shipping them in real life because of their bewitching chemistry is Lee Jun Ho and YoonA in King the Land. In Ep 10, during Goo Won’s (Lee Jun Ho) specially planned romantic dinner date with Cheon Sa Rang (YoonA), things go awry when the sprinklers accidentally get turned on and there’s water everywhere. One thing leads to another and Goo Won and Sa Rang share their passionate first kiss under the simulated rain. What makes the scene sexier is Goo Won asking for Sa Rang’s consent – something which isn’t that common in Korean dramas – before kissing: “Do I have permission?”
3. Yoo Yeon Seok & Seo Hyun Jin in Dr. Romantic
As mentioned above, Korean drama fans are used to the wait game when it comes to the main leads finally sharing their first kiss, which usually takes place between Ep 8 and 10. However, our next pick in steamiest kisses in K-drama history takes place in the first episode itself. Dr. Kang Dong Joo (Yoo Yeon Seok), an intern, and Dr. Yoon Seo Jung (Seo Hyun Jin), Dong Joo’s sunbae (senior), don’t see eye-to-eye. However, their bickering beginnings swiftly escalate into something more when a daring Dong Joo confesses to Seo Jung that he likes her, and promptly blindsides her with their heated first kiss inside the medical supplies storage room. Known as the master of kissing in the K-drama world, Yeon Seok finds the perfect partner in Hyun Jin as the good-looking on-screen couple share an otherworldly chemistry in Dr. Romantic. Audaciously enough, in the same episode, Dong Joo further proclaims that he wants to sleep with Seo Jung sunbae.
