The best part of K-drama kiss scenes, aside from granting the viewer the thrill of seeing the leads get all up close and personal, is that a good kiss scene forms bite sized satisfaction regardless of how good the drama is overall. One thing that kept me sane recapping craptastic Hyde, Jekyll, Me was the unanimous feedback from everyone else watching that the drama was terribly written. I don’t have to feel like there are those who can’t or won’t see the obvious. It also had one super hot and well-done kiss scene towards the end of the drama that maybe gives it some reason to exist.
Blood has been a drama I found as horrible as Hyde, yet the ardent viewers who stuck with it professed it the best thing ever which is an impasse I’ll never be able to understand but accept that different strokes for different folks. I heard there was finally a kiss scene between the leads this week so went back to check it out (I bailed on the drama after episode 6) to see if Blood at least had a kiss scene worth watching. Everyone can make their own determination of the scene (cut below) but I found Ahn Jae Hyun soooooo uncomfortably awkward in every way. I actually feel bad for Gu Hye Sun to be kissed by him. I hope he gets demoted down to second lead/supporting for the foreseeable future after this drama. Leading man he is not.
