Well, hot kdrama damn: I declare Seo Hyun Jin gets the best lipservice in the kdrama universe.
If you haven’t noticed, “Temperature Of Love” has premiered, thankfully.
The show has also brought this week’s edition of Kiss-Of-The-Week, courtesy of characters played by Yang Se Jong and Seo Hyun Jin. (The first in a long time. And that last kiss was super sweet, but on a different playing field.)
“I want to kiss you. Does kissing come with a sense of responsibility?”
“I don’t know if what I feel for you is love or not, or some other emotion.”
“If you’re that honest, women won’t kiss you. Women have this fantasy that a man kisses her because he loves her.”
“Avoid it if you don’t want to.”
And suddenly, we remember that trains can be romantic.
These kdrama writers sure as hell ain’t ever taken a Septa.
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.
