Sexy Korean Dramas 2022

Our Beloved Summer

  • Genre: Romantic Comedy
  • IMDB Rating: 8.9/10
  • Starring: Woo-Sik Choi and Kim Da-Mi

Sexiness Meter – 7/10

This romantic comedy portrays the mixed feelings of a couple- Choi Ung (Choi Woo-Sik) and Kook Yeon-Su (Kim Da-Mi) who filmed a hit documentary ten years ago, when they were in high school, and how they broke up. 

Fate brings them closer as they find themselves in front of the camera, yet again.

Choi Ung is a free-spirited and very naive man who wishes to have something for the first time in his life. 

While Kook Yeon-Su who always dreamed of becoming the top student at her school is now a mature young adult that is adapting to her reality with a wound in her heart and living fiercely. 

What is interesting is that Our Beloved Summer isn’t about just the steamy romance and spark between the characters but the way the story is narrated. 

These two former high school sweethearts meet years after their break up even though neither of them has moved on from the relationship and their egos prevent them from reaching out to each other. 

The soundtrack is amazing and even features an original soundtrack in the first episode and teaser by BTS idol V which is partly why so many BTS fans are getting hooked on this sexy drama.

It’s Okay to Not be Okay

  • Genre: Romantic Comedy, Drama
  • IMDB Rating: 8.7/10
  • Starring: Kim-Soo Hyun and Seo Ye-Ji

Sexiness Meter – 8.5/10

This captivating romantic television drama portrays a story about a caregiver Moon Kang Tae ( Kim Soo Hyun)who does not believe in love and a popular children’s book author Ko moon Young( Seo Ye Ji) who is selfish, arrogant, and rude and suffers from an antisocial personality disorder. 

Moon Kang Tae’s job entails him writing about various patients’ conditions and what to do in unexpected situations.

What I liked most is that It’s Okay To Not Be Okay narrates a unique and wonderful love story between the two characters while also addressing important mental health issues and mental wellness. 

This is definitely a one-of-a-kind drama about how the two characters heal each other’s emotional wounds. 

The drama features an empowering female lead and revolves around some powerful themes. 

And yes, you might start watching it for the passionate romance, but ‘It’s okay to not be okay’ emphasizes the fact that nobody can escape problems in life and how we must deal with such issues. 

So it’s got a good message and plot as well!

Another powerful theme in the drama is family and that can be seen in the hero’s relationship with his late mother and autistic brother. 

I know. I know. It’s not exactly steamy romance fodder. But it’s just a subplot and there’s always the fast forward feature!

This must-see drama really highlights the fact that it is really okay not to be okay at times and that feeling is acceptable.

My Secret Romance

  • Genre: Romantic Comedy
  • IMDB Rating: 7.1/10
  • Starring: Ji-eun Song and Sung Hoon

Sexiness Meter – 8/10

Cha Jin Wook(Sung Hoon) a selfish and arrogant son of a rich household enjoys his partying and affluent life when he is caught in a huge scandal. 

His father sends him to one of their resorts to be well-trained in a hope that he would change. Lee Yoo Mi (Song Ji Eun), an aspiring nutritionist has a bumpy relationship with her mother and is forced to attend her wedding outside the city.

Although the two characters lock eyes on the bus on the way to the hotel, they bump into each other at the hotel where Cha Jin Wook is working as a bellboy and bump into Lee Yoo Mi with a cake tray. 

Now that’s what I call a meet-cute!

After some childlike bickering, the two of them end up at the seaside sharing a bottle of wine together where they chat about their lives and end up having a one-night stand. 

Fast forward to three years later, the characters meet again. Although this steamy and sexy rom-com can be a little predictable at times, I guarantee you will love every second of it. 

The cheesy factors and over-the-top romantic gestures are intriguing and will make you wonder how the story will unfold.

This is definitely one of the K-dramas that has an equal dose of cheesy romance and sexy kisses!


  • Genre: Romance, Mystery, Drama
  • IMDB Rating: 7.2/10
  • Starring: Woo Do-Hwan and Soo-Young Park

Sexiness Meter – 9.5/10

Tempted has thriller elements as well as melodrama and romance genres that portray the friendship of three childhood friends- Kwon Shi-Hyun (Woo Do-Hwan), Choi Soo-ji, and Lee Se-Joo who are troublemakers and come from affluent families on a mission to seek revenge. 

When they are in college, Choi Soo-ji wants revenge on her ex who humiliated her.

She uses Eun Tae-hee(Soo-Young Park) who is not a believer in love and happens to be the first love of her ex. The revenge plan involved Kwon Shi-Hyun pretending to fall in love with her and eventually dumping her. 

But the game of seduction turns into something real when the two characters end up falling for each other and what is worse is that Eun Tae-hee finds out about this plan. 

Although these two get separated, they reunite again after many years as their love never really died. 

This cliche love story between a bad boy and a nice girl is always such a hit. But hey, I’m here for the steamy scenes. So who cares! 

What’s very fascinating is the chemistry between the two characters which makes the story more intriguing and captivating. This compelling plot is based on a book that makes this Kdrama worth watching.

Yoo Na-Bi (Han So-Hee) is an art student who suffers a severe heartbreak and has given up on love entirely when her boyfriend cheated on her. 

She soon meets the handsome and attractive Park Jae-Eon (Song Kang), who attends the same university as she does. 

As Na-Bi soon learns of his flirty and bad boy reputation of having meaningless flings without committing to a serious relationship. 

The pair share one thing in common: they both have broken ideas about love and soon become entangled in an undying romance where neither is willing to commit. 

But they do have explosive chemistry that can be seen in the passionate moments they share on-screen. 

This sweet drama depicts the love and attraction of young people of today. And I must say, for a K-drama it’s very realistic.

As no love story is without some spicy drama as Yoo Na-Bi meets an old flame who is an upcoming chef and falls for his caring and gentle nature who eventually proposes to her. Ahh, here we go with the drama!

Who will she pick and how will it all go down? Other than a fascinating plot, what will really draw you to this series is the soundtrack.

Sexiness Meter – 10/10

Loved 50 shades of grey? Then you will adore this show! In fact in some ways this Korean movie is better than 50 shades of grey as it has equal amounts of heart and ….ahem the other thing.

Quite forward for a Korean movie, Love and Leashes revolves around two colleagues, the overachieving Ji-hoo who loves partaking in BDSM activities and Ji-woo, a PR member from his team who figures out his secret.

And the two then decide to enter into a contractual relationship based purely on their physical desires. But will love remain far away?

Well, that’s the plot of this movie that has oodles of charm along with sex appeal. And this is exactly what makes is so worth watching.

Love and Leashes is based on the webtoon by Gyeoul called Moral Sense. The Korean news site Ohmynews called the movie “one of the most accurate representations of kinks in cinema”.

FAQs about Erotic Korean Dramas

Which Kdrama has most kissing scenes?

While traditionally Korean dramas very sort of conservative and shied away from showing any sort of physical intimacy on screen. This has changed a lot in recent times. There are several K-dramas right now that have a lot of kissing scenes in them.
Some of the Korean dramas with the most kissing scenes in them include What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, Her Private Life, Oh My Venus, and Suspicious Partners.

Which is the most intimate Kdrama?

There can be different interpretations and meanings of the word intimate. So I’d like to say that this is subjective. But there are several K-dramas that combine the best of physical intimacy and romance in their narratives. Some of these Korean dramas include “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay” which also delves into making a very intellectually intimate storyline for it’s couple, Descendants of the Sun, Crash Landing on You, etc.

Which K-drama couple has the best chemistry?

Ooh boy! This is going to be controversial. Everyone has their own favorite K-drama couple who they find have the best chemistry. According to me, the characters of Sunny and Grim Reaper from Goblin, Son Ye-Jin and Hyun Bin from Crash Landing on You, and of course, Ji-Hoo and Ji-Woo from Love and Leashes.

If you’re tired of the same old cutesy, teeny-bopper romances in Korean dramas, you can check out these steamy stories instead. 

And these top sexy dramas will not just steal your heart, but also get it racing.

What I like is that these K-dramas are known for their great plots too. So you won’t get bored by just watching the steamy scenes.

They, instead, will keep you on the edge of your seat and so intriguing that you will finish an entire season in a day just to know what will happen next. 

So if you’re planning to host a girl’s night, or simply want to kill some time by watching a different aspect of love, you should check out these steamy K-dramas.
