I’ve seen a lot of onscreen Kdrama kisses in my time, but my favorite has got to be the one from Prosecutor Princess, where Ma Hye Ri (Kim So Yeon) tells Seo In Woo (Park Shi Hoo), “I love you, you bastard.” It’s not only my favorite kiss from a Kdrama, but one I’ve watched the most on repeat. It works for me on every emotional level, perhaps because I love seeing how they fell in love throughout this drama.
Sometimes we can’t choose who we fall in love with because we fall in love with them first before we even realize it. Hye Ri and In Woo are perfect examples of two people in that exact situation — the more they spend time together, the more they love and respect the other individual. It’s ironic because they probably shouldn’t have fell in love due to their past family connections — it was also something In Woo didn’t expect while he plotted revenge against Hye Ri’s father and included her in his plans — but by the time the drama is over, it’s apparent that these two belong with each other. Ah, Love, you’re a sneaky one.
As I’m almost halfway done with this challenge (finally, right?), I find that I don’t really want to write paragraphs explaining my choices. Sometimes I think it’s just better for me to link you to the scenes that I loved and have you watch it yourself. Here’s the last 14 minutes of episode 13, leading up to the epic kiss scene.
