I love romances that start slowly. Where you can actually see how it develops and even more so, when it is not based on physical attraction. I think the moment where we can tell Dr Min is falling for Young Shin, or rather Young Shin’s family, is when he overheard Lee Bom singing Clementine to her mom.
It is true that I got frustrated at Young Shin for never kissing my Min Kiseo properly, but I also have to admit that this behavior fits the character of Young Shin perfectly. This is a woman who has chosen to forget she is a “woman” in order to become “Lee Bom’s mom”. She describes herself as a piece of furniture. This is not just about kdrama being prude, it is part of this story, so we forgive
Having said that, the scenes pre kiss and almost kiss in this drama, are hotter than many kiss or sex scenes I’ve seen. Sometimes the “unresolved sexual tension” is more satisfying. It’s all about those eyes full of love, passion and desire isn’t it?
Anyway, here are some of my favorite romantic and sexy scenes between Young Shin (Gong Hyo Jin) and Min Kiseo (Jang Hyuk)
MIN KISEO DRIES YOUNG SHIN’S TEARS: A convalescent Kiseo finds Young Shin sleeping next to him and crying. He feels sorry for her and tries to dry her tears. This is the first time he tries to do something nice for her, his ice cold shield is cracking
JEALOUS KISEO COMES TO THE RESCUE? Min Kiseo finds Young Shin in trouble! as she is being cornered by some guy who wants to marry her and her ex. He then “pretends” to have a jealousy attack, kisses her and scares the guys away. He “pretends” so well, Young Shin gets freaked out! (pssst me thinks he wasn’t really pretending)
“I DON’T HAVE COOTIES WOMAN”: Kiseo observes Young Shin the morning after he kissed her and he finds out she is brushing her teeth desperately! lol!
DRUNK YOUNG SHIN CONFUSES KISEO WITH HER DEAD FATHER: Min Kiseo appropriately freaks out! but then, comes the awwwwwzzzz
