Park Shin Hye is arguably one of the biggest female actors in her twenties in Korean dramas. She has starred opposite some of the biggest names in the game and has appeared in some of the most popular dramas in recent memory.
In all of these dramas she played the main romantic. Then why is that many of her kiss scenes seem to lack positive chemistry? This video is a compilation of some of these scenes and the guyz that managed to bring it or not bring it out of her.
My theory (and a possible answer to why she kisses the way she does) is that she’s never had a serious relationship in her life. I may be wrong on that. I don’t know the girl personally, only what has been put out through gossip websites, but I think that could be a legitimate reason. Either that, or else it takes a very special somebody to bring it out of her, and I ain’t talkin bout Lee Min Ho. I’m talking about you Yoon Si Yoon!
Richard has a theory as well. He believes that kissing scenes in Korean dramas, historically anyways, have just not been that important a part of the drama. If two people had chemistry, great! If not, families watching together would just make their children look away anyways. The kisses had so much less to do with the actual TV entertainment, although he admits that is indeed beginning to change. Just check out Witch’s Romance. Almost nothing tops those smexy Korean drama kisses.
Can’t wait for Pinocchio. Lee Jong Suk has his work cut out for him.
Happy Drama Watching everyone! ☺
