The “I’ll show you how to kiss” line really never gets old. After Ji Ho gives Sae Hee a peck on the lips, Se Hee takes it upon himself to put some emotion into a deeper and more loving kiss.

8. “Introverted Boss”
Yeon Woo Jin plays a very introverted and shy CEO named Eun Hwan Ki. He tries to avoid people at all costs until he meets Chae Ro Woon (Park Hye Soo) who starts to work at his company. She is the complete opposite of Hwan Ki and does not seem to leave him alone. When they say opposites attract, this particular series embodies that saying. Seeing these two come together and eventually fall in love is the perfect story. Not to mention that epic shower kiss scene. You might have seen it circulating online because it was literally steamy as it took place in a shower tub. You could feel the heat from where you are.
9. “1% Of Something”
Although underrated, “1% Of Something” has quickly become a must-watch K-drama for many, and a big reason is that post-shower kiss between Ha Seok Jin and Jun So Min. Although the story is pretty conventional in that it involves a contract relationship between a chaebol and elementary school teacher, the chemistry between the two stars is what really makes the series entertaining and unforgettable. You really just need to watch it to believe it.

10. “Dr. Romantic”
Yoo Yeon Seok is known to be one of the best K-drama kissers in the industry. When he has a kiss scene in a series, you can almost guarantee hot and heavy. The one in particular that fans couldn’t get over happened in episode 1, no less, of “Dr. Romantic.” His counterpart was his sunbae and fellow doctor Yoon Seo Jung, played by Seo Hyun Jin. The two engage in a steamy kiss scene in the change room, and none of us were ever the same again – did I mention that this happens in the first episode? Prepare your hearts.

11. “Don’t Dare To Dream” (“Jealousy Incarnate”)
Pyo Na Ri (Gong Hyo Jin) was in love with Lee Hwa Shin (Jo Jung Suk) for several years, but after getting rejected by him, she gets over him and ends up dating his best friend. While she’s dating his best friend, Hwa Shin starts to develop strong feelings for Na Ri. The emotionally charged build-up of the relationship between these two is of epic proportions. The tension, misunderstandings, and jealousy that is in the storyline all lead up to this fervent kiss.

This adorable duo captivated viewers with their ability to appear totally in love with each other in the series “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.” Park Hyung Sik plays the CEO of a gaming company named Ahn Min Hyuk and Park Bo Young plays a girl with super strength named Do Bong Soon.
The best part about this adorable duo was the way in which their chemistry amplified their kiss scenes. Remember that kiss scene on the piano? The sultriness of it is what legendary kiss scenes are made of.

In “Hyena,” Yoon Hee Jae (Joo Ji Hoon) falls in love with Jung Geum Ja (Kim Hye Soo) and makes it pretty obvious that he wants to be with her. What Hee Jae doesn’t know is that it’s all part of Geum Ja’s master plan to make him fall for her.
My only complaint is that there were not enough kiss scenes in this series. For what Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Hye Soo delivered, there should have been at least a dozen more. The veteran actors had such sultry and fiery chemistry that you were screaming at the screen for more. Seeing both hot-headed prosecutors engaging in a passionate romance with each other and seeing them take down the country’s most notorious villains are enough to entice anyone.
“Healer” is one of those K-dramas that you can watch countless times, and it’s still just as good. The drama stars Ji Chang Wook as Seo Jung Hoo, a man who runs errands anonymously, and Park Min Young as Chae Young Shin, a journalist. There’s a lot that goes on this series, but the romance and love between Jung Hoo and Young Shin pretty much make everything right in the world. How can we forget that legendary kiss where Chae Young Shin is blindfolded? They have such undying love for each other that it only intensified their kiss scenes, making it seem so real.

15. “Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food”
“Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food” (also known as “Something in the Rain”) stars Son Ye Jin as Yoon Jin Ah and Jung Hae In as the adorable Seo Joon Hee. The storyline involves Ji Ah and Joon Hee falling in love with each other after having known each other since they were kids.
There is not just one hot and heavy kiss scene in this particular series – all of them were enough to make you weak in the knees! Their on-screen romance was so cute and believable.
16. “Another Oh Hae Young”
“Another Oh Hae Young” is a drama that involved a lot of tears and passion, so it’s obvious that the two main leads have to engage in a lot of chemistry. The pain and anguish that Oh Hae Young (Seo Hyun Jin) experiences after falling in love with Park Do Kyung (Eric Mun), only to realize that he had her confused with another Oh Hae Young, is devastating. But, it doesn’t stop the two from embarking on a serious passion-filled romance with a lot of fiery kiss scenes, one of which involves a cement wall.
