Here are the dramas that our team members mentioned:

Warning: spoilers ahead

Yeon: “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim

When asked this question, there was one drama that immediately came to my mind. Most K-drama fans are probably familiar with some of the legendary scenes from the much-loved 2018 rom-com “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.” In this webtoon-based drama, Park Seo Joon plays Lee Young Joon, the narcissistic vice president of his family’s company, while Park Min Young is his secretary Kim Mi So. Their love story unexpectedly begins when Kim Mi So announces her resignation as Lee Young Joon suddenly realizes that he can’t live without her. As they gradually develop their relationship, their displays of affection become bolder, leading up to this monumental scene above that has over 300 million views on YouTube (pretty much a hit K-pop music video).

Ginny: “Now We Are Breaking Up

A drama that crosses my mind for this question is the 2021 drama “Now We Are Breaking Up.” In the very first episode, Ha Young Eun (Song Hye Kyo) spends the night with Yoon Jae Guk (Jang Ki Yong) at a hotel as strangers as shown above, kicking off their romance on an intense note. When Jae Guk asks for her name, she leaves the room, saying they will never see each other again. She later realizes after meeting him through work that it was Jae Guk she had spent the night with. Ha Young Eun and Yoon Jae Guk keep running into each other, so their romance is inevitable. The romance between these two adults is very well-portrayed, and there are also plenty of sweet scenes such as when Jae Guk surprises Young Eun with gifts while waiting outside her house without prior notice just to see her face through the window. Despite the disapproval from their families and unexpected secrets, they only seem to grow their feelings further, making it interesting to see how their romance develops.

Somni: “Bride of the Water God

We can’t talk about K-dramas with steamy kiss scenes without bringing up “Bride of the Water God”! “Bride of the Water God” features Nam Joo Hyuk as the water god Ha Baek who descends from the world of the gods to meet his human bride. Shin Se Kyung plays Yoo So Ah, a human who is part of a family that has been destined to serve the water god for generations. This drama features several intense kiss scenes, but my top choice would be the one above that starts when Nam Joo Hyuk gets jealous of Shin Se Kyung looking after her patient Shin Hoo Ye (Im Joo Hwan). If you want to see Nam Joo Hyuk in a more mature romance than his role in the recent hit “Twenty Five, Twenty One,” this drama may fulfill your needs.

Winnie: “The Red Sleeve

There are plenty of steamy scenes in K-dramas, but they can be a bit more rare in historical dramas—which make them that much better! In the drama “The Red Sleeve,” 2PM’s Lee Junho plays the role of the perfectionist young prince Yi San. He soon becomes King, but he cannot help but fall in love with a young woman at the palace—Sung Deok Im (Lee Se Young). Although they struggle to overcome their differences in social classes, their romance offers plenty of adorable bickering and also passionate kiss scenes that have contributed to making this drama a major hit. If you’re a fan of historical K-dramas, “The Red Sleeve” is a must-watch!

JJin: “Melo is My Nature

Although the romance between the main couple Im Jin Joo (Chun Woo Hee) and Son Bum Soo (Ahn Jae Hong) in “Melo is My Nature” is on the more mild side, supporting characters Lee So Min (Lee Joo Bin) and Lee Min Joon (Kim Myung Joon) are a different story. This particular scene above is made more romantic and meaningful because of the characters’ back stories and their genuine feelings for each other. Lee So Min is a star celebrity, while Lee Min Joon is her manager, and the two have been friends since high school. They finally admit and express their love for one another in episode 10, and they passionately share a kiss on the couch in the next episode. Their conversation in between the kisses are hilarious, endearing, and sincere. If you love friends-to-lovers and celebrity romance dramas, this couple will make your heart race even with their short screen time! A fun fact is that they were friends even before they started filming the drama—it makes sense why their chemistry on the show was amazing.

Natalie: “Reply 1997

I think all my fellow childhood-friends-to-lovers trope fanatics can agree that one of the best of its kind is “Reply 1997.” Sung Shi Won (Jung Eung Ji) and Yoon Yoon Je (Seo In Guk) have been friends for as long as they can remember when they finally realize that there’s more than just friendship between them. Their love story is not always pretty – they have their ups and downs – but what’s undeniable is that these two are just meant for each other! In the final episode, Yoon Je pops the big question: “Will you marry me?” Shi Won gives a shy yes and can barely look Yoon Je in the eye, but he goes in for a kiss anyway. The reason why this kiss is the absolute hottest is because it wasn’t just physical but was a milestone of their decades-long relationship from friends to lovers. Fans who had been following from episode 1 were so relieved and thrilled to find out that the couple ties the knot, which made the kiss even better. And of course, the two actors have amazing chemistry. “Reply 1997” is a fairly family-friendly drama, but if you plan on watching this episode…might not want to watch with your parents!

Jessie: “Eve

Thinking of more recent K-dramas, I want to mention “Eve,” a K-drama filled with love triangles, temptation, revenge, and of course, hot and steamy scenes. Lee Ra El, who is played by Seo Ye Ji, loses her family by a traumatic tragedy. She plans to take revenge on Kang Yoon Kyum (Park Byung Eun), a rich CEO who was involved in her tragic past. Lee Ra El decides that the best way to do this is by luring Kang Yoon Kyum to be her lover and force a divorce with his current wife. Among many fiery scenes in the drama, one of the most memorable would be the backstage kiss scene in episode 4. This scene is when Lee Ra El refuses to step away from Kang Yoon Kyum and decides to be his lover. He also gets lured by her temptation, and they share a deep kiss backstage. This dangerous romance is sure to keep you on the edge of your seats!

Sala: “My Roommate Is a Gumiho

What I love most about “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” is that it has plenty of both sweet and steamy moments between the main couple played by Jang Ki Yong and Girl’s Day’s Hyeri. “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” is a fantasy rom-com about a 999-year-old male gumiho named Shin Woo Yeo (Jang Ki Yong) who moves in together with Lee Dam (Hyeri) after she accidentally swallows the magical bead that would have made him human. The drama starts lighthearted with cute bantering from the couple as they get to know each other, but the fantasy element brings surprising twists to heat up the romance!
