I call that type of kiss the bulging eyes, stiff dead corpse kiss which; Park Shin Hye, it’s an expert in that department. She did it in HEIR, HEARTSTRINGS and FLOWER BOY NEXT DOOR. Thankfully, after so much criticizing from so many people she improved, and in the drama with Hyun Bin (sorry forgot title) she did a great improvement in the kissing scene department.
I mainly blame the Director/ Producer that feels this type of kissing in a drama is acceptable because even Suzy Bae in her recent drama on NTFX did just that! She left her eyes opened for a long while and stayed so stiff when Lee Seung Gi kissed her in VAGABOND, and I was so heartbroken and disappointed with her bc I Detest those kissing scenes and never thought she would do a scene like that. That takes away so much from the drama. To see this hunk kissing a stiff opened eye woman it’s so unromantic! It kills the scene and the sense of a start of a romantic love story.
What can you do? They starting doing this type of scenes all over again, and now is worse bc they are no longer doing the romantic kissing scenes in the ending episode Like ‘‘Love with Flaws’’ for example, and many others I’ve seen. Now with this pandemic things it will get much worse bc there’s no way ANYONE in their right mind, will want to do ANY Kissing scenes (I wouldn’t do it for all the money in the world!).
This virus is highly contagious, there’s no vaccine yet, and getting infected can mean a death sentence for many. Even if people survive this virus they develop heart disease, breathing problems, and not to mention mental health problems dealing with what they went through. Some will suffer PTSD for life bc to be so close to death, and experience so much pain, I can only imagine the ending outcome for some ppl that can’t deal with the nightmares etc…
The future is very dark bc right now this virus mutated, and is not only highly contagious, here in NYC the children are getting ''heart attacks! They are going into cardiac arrest, and Perfectly healthy babies and kids upto 12 year’s old are intubated with covid19. They do recover but with heart problems of course. Newborns are been delivered at home bc the mothers that went to hospital to deliver the baby, caught the virus, and passed it to their baby. Several babies have died which is a nightmare to be pregnant during this trying times. Many mothers have died right after having the baby (so heartbroken). The worst part is how irresponsible all this parents are by not putting a mask on their children bc according to them; ''Kids don’t get covid19 which is so wrong! I HATE watching news and need to stop doing just that.
In conclusion, K dramas, Asian dramas in general, and all over the world dramas, will no longer be able to add kissing romantic scenes bc is playing Russian roulette with your life.
