This week’s edition of KOTW goes to newbie Woo Do Hwan, who plays Dong Cheol on “Save Me.”
In episode 1, The dark, handsome, brooding youth throws his loving grandma a kiss on the cheek because…well, just grab a tissue, why don’t you?
GRANDMA: I ordered the jjajjangmyun that you like, let’s eat.
DONG CHEOL: Grandma, why did you order expensive jjajjangmyun?
GRANDMA: It’s okay, let’s eat. If it’s for you, nothing is too expensive. As your grandmother, I’m sorry.
DONG CHEOL: Grandma, I like you the most out of everyone in the world. That’s why you don’t need to feel sorry, okay?
Jjajjangmyun = Your Grandma loves you to pieces!
The heart, kdrama lovers. The heart.
And the best kiss of last week goes to…
The Best Hit, Episode 20
Finally. Ji Hoon (Kim Min Jae) mans up and makes a move.
We watched him be a clueless idiot for many an episode, and then realize (in a painfully slow way) his feelings for his friend Woo Seung (Lee Se Young). He confesses, gets rejected, and quickly resolves not to give up. After such a slow burn, I’m relieved he kissed her; good grief. Thank God it wasn’t just a hug.
Ooh, I feel a kiss scene about to happen.
With not one, not two, but three (!) kiss scenes in a single week, The Best Hit’s got the liplock count covered. (Not to mention the one with Lee Kwang Soo’s cameo.)
Choi Woo Seung (Lee Se Young) and Yoo Hyun Jae (Yoon Si Yoon) got all the action this past week, albeit they were all accidental by circumstance.
It’s been awhile since my last edition of Kiss-Of-The-Week (KOTW). (Perhaps it’s been banal these last few weeks in kdrama?)
At any rate, things seem to be looking up in kdramaland overall, with Fight My Way bringing us an extra spring in our step and The Best Hit finally premiering.
Kiss #1: The Accidental Car-Stopped-Short-And-My-Mouth-Landed-On-Your-Mouth Kiss [Episode 3]
When you slam the brakes and the person sitting in the backseat is in the middle, with no seatbelt on, well, sure, it could happen. (Only in kdrama.)
Kiss #2: The Broken Passenger Seat Kiss [Episode 4]
Because the broken passenger seat gave out, of course, as it’s been prone to do.
Kiss #3: The Your-Lips-Broke-My-Fall Kiss
When you slip and your face lands in another person’s face.
And who didn’t love that 90s background music, highlighted by a 360-degree visuals and a pop of lens flare?
