For those who are unaware, today is a very special occasion around the world - it is International Kissing Day! 

To celebrate a day of love, as well as the act of showing love for someone else using your lips, we've decided to take a look at the 9 most memorable kissing moments in K-pop and K-dramas!

9. (TIE) Sandara Park and Lee Minho; Sandara Park and BIGBANG's Taeyang

Their chemistry was so steamy that we (and fans everywhere) wanted the 2 to star in a drama together!

But we couldn't decide between that and Dara's unforgettable moment with Taeyang at the 2010 MAMAs!

8. The "man or alien" kiss in Coffee Prince

No kissing list would be complete without this classic moment of pure passion!

7. HyunA and Hyunseung 

Ahhh, the infamous 2011 MAMAs where Hyuna and Hyunseung put on a steamy Troublemaker performance that was highlighted by the kiss no one could forget about!

Of course, this is far from the first time the duo have locked lips...

6. The "Game Over" kiss in Personal Taste

Definitely one of the more memorable kisses in recent memory, mainly because of all the build-up!

5. Everyone in GOT7 ganging up on JB

JB may have looked uncomfortable with it all, but we think it is lovely that the GOT7 members care about their leader so much!

4. The "swing kiss" in Boys Over Flowers

The setting, the music, and the sheer emotion make this one quite the memorable smooch!


3. BTS' Jungkook and J-Hope 

Losing during the "Random Play Dance" game generally results in getting hit with a toy hammer. For BTS though, the punishment was kissing each other, and the ones to be punished were none other than Jungkook and J-Hope!

2. The "first kiss" in Descendants of the Sun

It was the moment everyone was waiting for, and one that is so unforgettable that many parodies have been made of it - when Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo finally kiss!

1. BIGBANG's G-Dragon and T.O.P 

Need we say more about this forever-iconic kiss?

Did we miss any more iconic kisses in the K-pop and K-drama world?
