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?
Damn. This guy knows what he’s doing.
In what must be the swoonworthiest moment in kdrama eons, I hereby report that this edition of KOTW is quite the number.
Yoo So Joon (Lee Je Hoon) x Song Ma Rin (Shin Mina). Tomorrow With You, Episode 4. Give me a moment.
After three eps of “accidental” run-ins, and So Joon pursuing Song Ma Rin like a creeper, though self-serving in nature, their fates are intertwined, so it seems.
And there they are, in episode 4.
And this was a Whopper of an episode. A Big Mac. A Dave’s Big ‘N Juicy. A Double-Double with Grilled Onions and Fries, Animal Style.
And then this awesome kiss scene pops up; it was going to happen.
But these characters and the plot lines leading up to it make it feel apropos and not contrived. Like things are happening a little quickly but you’re there, caught up in the moment, feeling the sparks in the scene.
You know what I mean.
Remind me to direct Lee Je Hoon in a kiss scene at some point. Easy as pie.
And this week’s edition of KOTW goes to: Hwarang!
After weeks of staring at each other, Soo Yeon (Lee Da In) and Ban Ryu (Do Ji Han) finally got it S.W.A.K. Thank God. That was a lot of staring, and even then, they were few and far between.
Props to Soo Yeon for making the first move.
I suppose there’s nothing like leaving and the chance of returning only-if-you’re-not-dead to catalyze some progress in the love department. (That lock of hair was creepy af though.)
