Different expressions of Korean male stars when filming the dramas’ kissing scenes have caught viewers’ attention.
No matter how many years of acting experience they have, it is never a piece of cake for actors to act in intimate scenes with their co-stars, especially kissing scenes. Even the handsome Korean actors who are considered “King of on-screen kisses”, who are always proactive and do a good job at these scenes look confused sometimes. Let’s take a look at some interesting expressions of Korean top actors when filming the kissing scenes.
Kim Seon Ho
There used to be a topic about how Kim Seon Ho’s face looks so innocent that the female leads always have to take the initiative to kiss him. Maybe that’s why when he had to shoot the scene where he is the one to kiss first, the 35-year-old actor was embarrassed. This can be easily seen in the recent behind-the-scenes cut of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha.
In the latest episode 10, the main couple Hong Du Sik and Yoon Hye Jin officially confess their feelings to each other and share a sweet kiss. In the drama, the two characters are filled with emotions, but in real life, Kim Seon Ho was quite shy and soft with Shin Min Ah while filming. Especially after he finished the kissing scene, he smiled sweetly but also looked a bit embarrassed. Fans have left many comments on how adorable the actor is!
Hyun Bin is excellent at doing emotional scenes, and the kissing scenes don’t make it difficult for him. This is evident in his kiss scene with Park Shin Hye in Memories Of Alhambra. In the drama, this is an intense kiss and shows the full initiative on Hyun Bin’s part. Behind the scenes, the actor did it very quickly and professionally. While Park Shin Hye was still a bit shy, Hyun Bin monitored the scene very seriously, without seeming to be confused.
But that’s with colleagues, it’s different when he films with his girlfriend. Filming kissing scenes with Son Ye Jin in “Crash Landing on You”, Hyun Bin’s expressions and reactions are extremely cute. The scene in the hospital when the two main characters Jung Hyuk and Se Ri confirm their feelings is emotional and heartbreaking on screen, but the behind-the-scenes are fun. When the two interacted back and forth, it’s clear that Hyun Bin enjoyed watching Son Ye Jin’s pretty face. When there was an NG, the actress burst out laughing, so Hyun Bin also smiled brightly.
In another scene, the couple practiced the lines together and enjoyed the atmosphere as if it were just the two of them. The two then started filming the kiss scene. Son Ye Jin hesitated a bit and Hyun Bin suddenly glared at her for a few seconds and couldn’t help but burst out laughing. In fact, fans can rarely see Hyun Bin acting this sweetly towards other actresses. This probably only happens when his co-star is someone special to him.
Kim Jae Wook
In Her Private Life, Kim Jae Wook and Park Min Young are an extremely romantic couple. The two exchange countless kiss scenes that are both lovey-dovey and intense. Among them, the “blind kiss” is probably the most famous one. Before kissing, Lee Jae Wook said he would sit still and not move, but when the shooting started, he raised his lips to wait for Park Min Young to kiss him.
After filming finished, the actor seemed to continue to wait. Faced with the crew’s silent reaction, Kim Jae Wook was even more embarrassed because of his expression. Since the actor is known for his cold, and antagonistic roles, when he turns to be a dreamy male lead in a romance drama, no matter how skillful he is, moments like those are unavoidable.
Lee Dong Wook
Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na are popular on-screen couples. They acted together in 2 dramas. They have sweet kissing scenes in both. Lee Dong Wook is known for always nailing loving scenes, but when he kissed Yoo In Na in Goblin, he was embarrassed and tried to run away.
Moving onto Touch Your Heart, the couple has even more kissing scenes. They also look more natural with each other in this drama compared to Goblin. Filming the kissing scenes became less awkward, instead, there was endless laughter from both actors or serious discussions to find the best filming angle.
It’s not easy to act in loving scenes, even for the top actors who have been in the industry for many years. There are still some embarrassing or awkward moments. Nevertheless, it’s all just behind the scenes, they always pull it off once the cameras start rolling and bring absolutely perfect footage to the audience. Particularly, the more viewers look back at the behind-the-scenes of Crush Landing on You, the more adorable they find Hyun Bin – Son Ye Jin. It turns out they’ve been hinting at their relationship for a long time, without anyone realizing. They’re such talented actors.
