Getting dirty with it: The hottest Korean drama sex scenes
Korean dramas have gained Western popularity in recent months & years. The K-drama train doesn’t seem to be slowing down, either. Earlier this year, Netflix established a branch of its company in South Korea called Netflix Entertainment Korea.
Korean media covers many genres and often has a lot of romantic themes. Of course, there are times romance is joined with sexual scenes. Even though South Korean culture is pretty conservative, that hasn’t stopped some of the most sensual moments from happening offscreen.
Here’s a list of the K-drama films & shows that include quite a bit more than a passionate makeout session.
