Kissing is an activity like any other: the more you practice the better you become at it, right? That’s what I like to think anyways. ☺
When we first got this question, I thought how am I ever possibly going to answer this one. Because frankly: I’ve never kissed a Korean guy! And, most girls I know don’t kiss and tell. Especially Korean girls.
But then I started thinking about all the dramas I’ve seen, what the kisses are like in them, and what the appeal to that is. I mean, it made me think about when I first started watching Asian dramas and why I did. Part of that is just the strong emphasis that is placed on the building of the relationship and not so much the making out (kissing). For somebody who grew up in a society where sexuality is everywhere, I got jaded by it. I felt growing up that if I wasn’t also making out with guys and being sexy, that there was something wrong with me. American society to some extent is so saturated with sexual content that there’s no escaping it.
So for me, there was a huge draw in the relationship building in Asian dramas and the innocence of it all.
There’s a part of me that’s so excited by the prospect that a guy would be so excited just to kiss me. For most guys that I knew when I was younger, that excitement had faded away a long time ago. Maybe it’s not true for everyone, but I think for most girls there’s a little girl deep down who dreamed of fairytales and a kiss that starts off their ‘happy ever after’.
I may never know for sure if there’s some connection between how men in Korea kiss on screen and how they actually kiss in real life. Maybe some things are better left in dramaland. ☺
