Happy anniversary U-Kiss! To celebrate all things Kiss-me, we thought we’d take a look back at the some of the best (almost) kisses in Asian pop.
Oooh things just got a little hot in here!
1. U-Kiss – Quit Playing
There was a lot more than almost kissing going on in this MV. The boys certainly came back in a scandalous way this year (scandalous by Asian pop standards anyway).
2. Kimberley Chen – Break Up Club
You think she’s going in for the kiss… but then it just ends up being an Eskimo kiss. She's so cute!
3. Taeyang – 1am
Taeyang actually does plant a kiss on actress Min Hyo Rin who features in his “1am” (and “Eyes, Nose, Lips” MV – her picture is the one going up in flames at the end) and even though she is just an actress... hearts did shatter around the world *sigh*.
4. Trouble Maker – Now
If Hyuna and Hyunseung didn’t kiss in this MV we might have all exploded from anticipation (it’s almost like watching Twilight). Lucky they did… and it was incredible.
5. AKMU – 200%
This is the cutest almost kiss as they are so far away from each other… and yet so close. If they had pulled it off it would have been pretty awkward for a number of reasons!
6. JYJ – Back Seat
You might remember KBS (Korea’s largest broadcaster) banned this track recently because of the lyrics, particularly the line “Put you on my back seat” because it refers to an intimate relationship. (The boys are almost 30 – we hope they’ve had a kiss by now!)
7. Show Lo – Fantasy
Dear Show – he’s such ladies’ man! He almost kisses every girl on this set! You have to give him credit for trying.
So there you have it! It's no wonder a lot of pop stars try their luck at acting too - there are lots more opportunites to seal the deal.
