We've already celebrated the 10 hottest Kdrama kisses, but coming few and far between, those kisses aren’t what really fuel the majority of the romances in our favorite dramas. The episodes leading up to the big explosion of passion are often filled with sweet moments of tender romance that make our stomachs do somersaults and keep us pushing the “next episode” button. So, now that the weather’s getting cold, let’s celebrate some of these heart-warming moments, shall we? There are so many to choose from, but here are a few of the top tender Kdrama moments:

1.The blow dryer, Personal Taste

Sure, it’s kind of impractical and inconvenient, but I’m pretty sure that most Kdrama fans would jump at the chance to have Lee Min Ho blow dry their hair. Oh, and then he gets mesmerized by her neck. Win-win-win-win-win.

2.The flowers, Full House

Rain’s character in Full House wasn't always the best at expressing his feelings (okay, that's a major understatement). In fact, when he sends 105 flowers to Ji Eun, she initially asks if it's a symptom of food poisoning. His advance apology flowers show her that he doesn't want to hurt her, and they share a sweet, argument-free moment surrounded by roses. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who wanted to strangle Hye Won when she barged in on the party!

3. The sewing scene, Marry Him If You Dare

See, kids? Basic household chores can be fun! This sweet moment gives Mi Rae a glimpse of Kim Shin's inner kindness, and it almost makes the existence of that horrific dress forgivable. Almost.

4. The measurements, Arang and the Magistrate

Whoa. Apparently, sewing is the sexiest activity in the world. Who knew? Nothing even really happens in this scene, and it still had me clutching my heart.

5. The phone booth, Queen In Hyun's Man

This show was basically one gigantic montage of awwwww-worthy moments, but one that sticks out to me (aside from the fantastic tip-toe kiss, obviously) is when they get caught inside their special phone booth in the rain. The rain goes on and on and on, but they don't mind snuggling and making plans to tour the world together.

6. Reading out loud, The Master's Sun

I'm kind of a sucker for people reading anything together, even if they're just legal documents. Even more than that, this scene was symbolic of the growing trust between Gong Sil and Joong Won. He trusted her with his biggest weakness. In return, she was late to her big date with Kang Woo.

7. The library notes, Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Love notes inside library books. LIBRARY BOOKS! Alskdfskdhfgfegf. SO MUCH EMOTION. This is every nerd's secret dream.

8. The tango, Scent of a Woman

Possibly the hottest non-kissing scene in the history of all Kdrama. Ji Wook uses the tango to prove Yeon Jae's feelings for him, and by the end, I'm pretty sure none of us have any doubts.

9. Cooking lessons, Dating Agency: Cyrano

I have a major case of second male lead syndrome when it comes to this show. I can't help it. But who can resist scenes like this one? Yet another mundane chore turned awesome by the power of chemistry.


10. The beach, Goong

It feels like it took eleventy bagillion years for the main leads to get together in this series. This short scene of the couple frolicking on the beach was a much-needed break from the palace tension to remind us that this couple really was falling in love.

Even as I type this, I can think of about 20 more scenes that I could include on this list. There are just so many good ones to choose from! Which sweet Kdrama moments captured your heart? Comment below!
