This is a rather ignominious list to win but it’s a pretty funny worst list to be on and also plenty of opportunity to improve. K-actress Ha Ji Won was voted the worst onscreen kisser but a huge margin, with second place going to Kim Tae Hee, Kang Dong Won coming in third, and a gaggle of straggling kissers in 4th place including Han Ga In, Jung Chae Yeon, Gu Hye Sun, and Park Shin Hye. I can’t say I disagree with any of the names on this list but more like I would re-order the list, and if list was broader there would be many more names I would toss on as dead fish puckers onscreen.
It does ruin a romantic moment when the kissing sucks, sometimes it’s due to the PD directing the lovers to just peck, but other times it’s supposed to be a passionate deep kiss and the lack of movement and participation of one side sucks the air out of the romance. Poor Ha Ji Won just seems stiff and unable to relax in her kissing scenes, and acting opposite majorly awesome kissers like Hyun Bin, Jo In Sung, So Ji Sub, Lee Jin Wook, Ji Chang Wook, et. al just makes it more unfortunate. Maybe she’ll get better once she gets married in real life and uses that experience for onscreen realism.
