International viewers praised the scene and the actors for their dedication to the art. K-Dramas often showcase bland kiss scenes which have been highly criticized by international viewers as “dead fish kisses.” Cha Eunwoo’s kiss scene was a refreshing change for many.

Wonder what Koreans think? Korean netizens are divided on the scene, with some accepting the new standards of kiss scenes in K-Drama, while others were put off by the visible tongues.
Netizen comments. | theqoo There are tongues in other scenes too, so I think they just continued filming that way. Well, what’s the deal about tongues when they’re already smashing lips? I just watched it thinking, “wow, how intense,” and nothing much else. What…is this? Even if it’s acting, the actress could feel a little uncomfortable… They could film it without tongues. I don’t like the use of tongues… It’s so-so from the viewer’s POV. Why are people mad? I love it. It’s dirty… Did they have to use tongues like that? Wow, but Cha Eunwoo’s face is really moving me. Wow, hot stuff.
What did you think of the scene?
