DID. NOT. SEE. THAT. COMING.
Don’t you love when a kdrama actually sneaks up and surprises you?
In this special (and second!) KOTW highlight, we spotlight the kiss scene in Romantic Doctor Kim, which premiered on Monday this week.
And it’s the first episode, so this drama’s wasting no time in getting to the romance.
The setting: A hospital storage room.
The Kisser: A cocky intern, Kang Dong Joo (Yoo Yoon Seok).
The Kissee: A ballsy resident, Yoon Seo Jung (Seo Hyun Jin).
And the intern makes his move. (Nice switching up of seniority levels, Show.)
And she pushes him back. ‘Cause that just popped out of nowhere.
But, wait – there’s more.
He goes for another one. She resists – but this time he continues. (Sidenote: slightly rapey vibes?) And then it takes on a bit of spark of its own. (Seriously, that was some 2nd kiss. )
It could be seen as romantic, but it feels premature; he must be messing with her.
Damn, the element of surprise. Been awhile since a kdrama’s hit me with one of those.
