The 10 hottest KDrama kisses
Korean dramas get a lot of flack for the whole peck-on-the-lips-with-eyes-wide-open kiss thing, and I'm right there with you. However, you should never underestimate the power of the Korean entertainment industry in creating some beautifully romantic (and hot) kisses. Here are my top 10, in no particular order. 1. The Cola Kiss (Lie To Me) Who could forget the reason why half of us girls wanted to be somewhat drenched in sugary beverages with Kang Ji Hwan right in front of us staring at us deeply with those eyes. No...just me? Okay. 2. The Game Over Kiss (Personal Taste) Lee Min Ho. LEE MIN HO. Okay I'll stop. But really how perfect is it when he's like "game over". Ugh, future husband, you've got big shoes to fill. 3. Kitchen Kiss (Answer Me 1997) Oh my Seo In Guk. When he throws his jacket to the ground and just walks towards Jung Eun Ji, my heart stopped, and then they produced this kiss that literally stole my heart. I may have screamed watching this....may have. 4. Pouring Rain Kiss (Playful Kiss) When Jung So Min is stopped mid-sentence because Kim Hyun Joong drops the umbrella and goes in for the kiss, leaving the two drenched in the pouring rain, my feels could not have been contained. Ask my college roommate, she wasn't having my spazzing at all. 5. Candy Kiss (IRIS) I mean really, this kiss changed a generation. Everyone and their mother wanted to move candy between their and their significant other's mouth that it may well be one of the most famous Kdrama kisses ever. 6. Tip Toe Kiss (Queen Inhyun's Man) Seriously one of the best kisses in drama history! I mean why wouldn't it be when the two had the hots for each other while filming? Oh Yoo In Na, you lucky girl! 7. "My Person" Kiss (Gu Family Book) I didn't know what to name this but when Lee Seung Gi says "Don't lay a hand on my person". UGH THE FEELS. I think that accurately explains that. 8. Bed Scene Kiss (Scent of a Woman) Bow Chicka Wow Wow. If the tango scene in this drama didn't set the scene for this kiss, I don't know what did. For those of you who haven't watched this drama, if you're in for a cry and some AMAZING romance, I suggest you do it...now. 9. The "I'm Not Leaving" Kiss (Coffee Prince) YOON EUN HYE. UGH you lucky girl. I mean if this kiss didn't make you want to just....ugh....there are no words. 10. Second Kiss (I Miss You) If this list taught me anything it's that Yoon Eun Hye is living the life I wish I could lead right now. Sigh. Good thing this list stops at 10 otherwise who knows how many more times she would end up on this list. What are your favorite K-drama kisses?

New to Korean Dramas? Start with these.
New to Korean dramas? These are the shows you should watch first! Early this year I discovered the awesome and magical world of K-pop, and shortly after I found out about the equally awesome and magical world of K-dramas. Even though I've loved every single show I've watched, I had a tough time choosing my first K-drama. I spent hours scrolling through tv series and a few days adding and removing shows from my queue. To prevent anybody else from being intimidated by the seemingly endless selection of K-dramas here are the five best first K-dramas. Coffee Prince: If you love coffee and like Prince, Coffee Prince is the perfect first k-drama for you. The real reason to watch Coffee Prince is for Go Eun Chan. Something about Eun Chan's goofy, tomboy, awkwardness had me hooked from the start. Seeing her try to balance her work and personal life while trying to keep her gender a secret from Choi Han Gyul and the rest of her co-workers made this show very entertaining. There is another spot in my heart reserved for Coffee Prince because it was the first time I really loved a romantic-comedy. Vampire Prosecutor: Its a super cool crime-drama with a vampire (a very attractive Korean vampire) that fans of crime shows like CSI should definitely choose as their first k-drama. Each case was different and unpredictable but I especially loved that most questions brought up about Prosector Min Tae Yeon's vampire origins were answered when it ended. What I really love about this and every k-drama I've watched is that it ended. I didn't have to worry about this show becoming another crime show with routine cases and predictable outcomes because I knew that Prosecutor Min had important personal mysteries to solve. Boys Over Flowers: This show had a few crazy moments but its still a great first k-drama for fans of romantic-comedies. As much as I like Geum Jan Di, the reason why I kept watching this was for the F4 and more specifically Gu Jun Pyo and Yoo Ji Hoo. During the first couple episodes Ji Hoo almost immediately seems like the perfect man for Jan Di, but Jun Pyo goes from being a rich, arrogant bully to a better, more lovable person. Good Doctor: Fans of medical dramas like ER (or even the medical comedy-drama Scrubs) should definitely choose Good Doctor as their first k-drama. It's one of the most heart-warming shows I've ever watched because of Park Shi On. He's living with autistic savant disorder, but he doesn't let that get in his way of fulfilling the promise he made to his brother to become a doctor. Shi On ends up becoming a resident in training in the pediatrics ward at Sungwon University Hospital (which is filled with some of the more adorable kids) and spends the next six months learning not only how to become a better doctor but how to be a better, more mature person. IRIS: this will always have a special place in my heart because it was my first K-drama. IRIS is a great first k-drama for fans of action-thrillers like the Bourne series. The balance of this show was close to perfect. There was plenty action to hold your attention, it had just enough romance without getting too mushy, and the right amount of twists, suspense and surprises to keep you watching.
Taecyeon, Rain, and Siwon voted onto the list of the 100 Most Handsome Faces of 2013
The Independent Critics have spoken, and this year they've added 8 of the hottest Korean celebrities to their list of the 100 Most Handsome Faces of 2013, including superstars 2PM's Taecyeon at #13, Rain at #46, and SuperJunior's Choi Siwon at #7. Additionally, these other famous Korean actors and idols were also on the list: #91 Lee Byung Hun #68 Dennis Oh #40 Lee Jung Jae #33 Big Bang's Taeyang And #24 Daniel Henney For 25 years, The Independent Critics have published a List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of each year. The lists have been published, in various formats, every year since 1990... and in recent years have been seen by over to 40 million unique visitors from around the world. Now, for the first time, after tens of thousands of requests, The Independent Critics are listing the 100 Most Handsome Faces of the Year. Unlike many other annual publications, The Independent Critics List is not a popularity contest. It is not about the sexiest or the most famous. Rather, it aims to be a very international list and one that is inclusive of many cultures, lifestyles, professions and degrees of fame. The Independent Critics List intends to inform public opinion rather than reflect it. This list searches far and wide, listening to the millions of suggestions submitted every year, and tries to put together a list representative of the modern ideal of aesthetic beauty. 25 countries are represented on this 2013 list. That number should go up every year as the list grows and expands. Feel free to comment below with your suggestions or opinions. Originality is most welcome! There is no need to suggest a meg-star or someone that is on the list already. New names are very welcome indeed. We want to add to our extensive database. Of course, lists are very subjective... you will disagree with some of the choices, but perhaps you will find a new favorite. Every year, this list will be populated by some legendary entries who never seem to fade, but it is also replenished with the freshest faces from around the world. 100. Robert Downey Jr 99.
