    Was that Water Bride bit o’ nonsense this year? They definitely fell in the “get a room/can they kiss like that in Kdrama?” category.

    Chicago Typewriter’s outside, on the street, eyeglass droppin’ kiss. Maybe that was last year too?

    Funny but still Sexy (it’s Lee Min ki after all): Because it’s the First Time hilarious on the beach first kiss ever for our heroine.

    Most weighty romantic kiss I’ve ever seen – Fox Bride Star as he awakens and sees the impossible struggle she faces of making a decision she knows she has no right to make for him but love says “I want you to live”, so he kisses her as he grabs her hand and plunges the needle into his shoulder.

    Most violent attempted kiss – while not exactly a kiss, I was really impressed in Rebel Thief Who Stole the People when the villain tried to steal a kiss and the hero’s girl bit a good chunk of his ear off. Yeah, that was satisfying.

    I’m realizing this is the first year that I haven’t watch much that is romance.

    I agree to everything you have said
    But I love the kisses from IAM NOT A ROBOT, the close ups, the slow- MO, Chae Soo Bin. Wow!

  • Minh says:

    Kang Ji Hwan is a good kisser?

    • ckphoenix ckphoenix says:

      Hi Minh! Kang Ji Hwan is one of our favourites. You can watch Coffee House or check out his scenes with Yoon Eun Hye, to see it for yourself. The Cola Kiss Scene won’t be hard to find on Youtube.

      – Leila

      • Beez says:

        @CK – Now I’m really confused because I’m pretty sure that Yoon Eun Hye is the Coffee Prince actress. Although I haven’t seen Coffee House so did she have a cameo in it or something?

        • ckphoenix ckphoenix says:

          Hi Beez! Coffee House is a different drama of Kang Ji Hwan. Lie To Me was the one he had with Yoon Eun Hye. Both kisses of Kang Ji Hwan in those dramas are good 🙂 Try watching both.

          • Beez says:

            Lie to Me has been on my list for a while. I thought Coffee House was a Coffee Prince don’t-wanna-see sequel like FullHouse 2 but on your say-so, it’s going on the list.

  • Beez says:

    I’ve only seen Kang Ji Hwan in a couple of things (Scandalmakers and Scandal in Old Seoul) but I periodically pull up this trailer and regret he didn’t get to finish this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SyMrcMdcT6E

    No offense to Lee Min ho, but I think KJH had the maturity and gravitas the role required. I also think that based on the lead actresses age, KJH would’ve been a better from fit.
