Romantic confession scenes in K-drama are supposed to be romantic. However, these are just funnily cheesy and not sweet at all.
Sweet and romantic confession lines are essential to K-drama. However, there have been times that supposed-to-be romantic scenes are actually so cheesy and unrealistic, like the upcoming 5 examples below.
1. Goo Jun Pyo – Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho)
If it’s cheesy, then of course, there must be Lee Min Ho. The reason is simple. This A-list male actor is famous for many of his chick-flick dramas with cheesy lines and scenes.
2. Yoo Shi Jin (Song Joong Ki)
“Descendant of the Sun” is definitely a must-watch for romantic-loving girls. However, not all ladies fall for Yoo Shi Jin’s (Song Joong Ki) daily extravagant confession: “My rule is to protect the beautiful, the olds and children. Someone who is both beautiful and old is right in front of me, why wouldn’t I protect you?”, “Every single word you say is important to me”, “You are gorgeous in the morning, and super gorgeous at night”.
3. Kim Rae Won
Doctors is another Korean drama with many cheesy lines. The most legendary line is professor Hong Ji Hong’s (Kim Rae Won) confession to the female lead: “Don’t move, let me come to you! You have to let the one who knows what love is take the initiative. Don’t move, until the one not knowing what love is knows, definitely don’t move!“.
4. Lee Shin (Joo Ji Hoon)
Despite having a cold personality, once he falls in love, crown prince Lee Shin in Princess Hours can “turn on his cheesy mode” by saying: “This is the first time in my life, not as a crown prince, but as a man confessing his feelings to the girl he likes. Since when did you begin to enter my heart without my permission. Something seems to happen to my heart everyday. I want to understand you better, I want to see you more often.”
5. Lim Joo Kyung (Moon Ga Young)
One of the outstanding points that spark mixed reactions to True Beauty is a series of cheesy scenes between the main couple Joo Kyung (Moon Ga Young) and Su Ho (Cha Eun Woo) that give the viewers goosebumps. Typical examples are Joo Kyung’s love letter to her crush or the cringe-worthy anniversary celebration of her best friend at the new school.
