10 Best Love-Making Scenes in Korean Movies (2022)

10 Best Love-Making Scenes in Korean Movies (2022) – Several Korean films have achieved international praise, including ‘Old Boy’ and ‘Train to Busan.’ Congratulations to filmmakers such as Bong Joon-ho and Park Chan-wook for introducing the world to some of the most remarkable works of cinema. The Korean drama ‘Parasite’ is currently the Oscar leader, so it’s no wonder that even the most casual moviegoers are starting to go through extensive lists of other potential Korean films. Even so, erotica, one of the most important genres in Korean cinema, remains mostly unknown to most overseas audiences.

Korean erotic thrillers are both enticing and thrilling, as they initially entice you with their sexual appeal and then teach you a thing or two about how sex can frequently be deadly (to say the least). There have been countless memorable moments of intimacy in the world of cinema, and we previously compiled a list of the best of the twenty-first century. However, in this article, we will discuss the top Korean sex scenes of all time.

The Scarlet Letter (2004)

‘The Scarlet Letter’ is a well-known K-drama that has impacted a number of other popular suspense thrillers. But, more than anything else, the film sparked a lot of criticism due to its “tinge” of sexuality. Soon after the film’s release, there were rumors that one of its sequences was so gruesome that as soon as the public saw it, one of the principal actresses, Lee Eun-Ju, committed suicide shortly after completing the production. This action takes place in the trunk of a car and is not titillating in any way. Instead, it is a gruesome depiction of our frailties.

B.E.D (2012)

What can you expect from a film that physically spells out the word “BED” for you? ‘B.E.D,’ as the title suggests, is an erotic thriller about the lives of three people named B, E, and D. B leads a scandalous life, and everything “begins and finishes on the bed” for him. E is a married woman who is involved in an extramarital relationship with B. Finally, D is a career-driven lady who is also a devoted wife to B.

Several sequences in the film feature full-frontal nudity and graphic “implied” sex. It features considerably more sex scenes than one would think, and there isn’t a single sequence in the film that stands out from the others. It may not give much in terms of plot, but you can just ignore that aspect and focus on its exhilarating scandalous sequences.

Thirst (2009)

With ‘Thirst,’ director Park Chan-wook creates a unique blend of horror, culture, and taboo. It centers on the illicit love relationship between mentally challenged Jong-du and Gong-ju, who has severe palsy. This ostensibly genuine bond develops as a result of sexual abuse and serves as a mirror to the neglect of the two wards from their respective families. All of the twisted sexual connections depicted in ‘Thirst’ serve as allegories for the dark side of Korean society in certain respects.

Natalie (2010)

The film’s title alludes to a famous nude piece by sculptor Jun-hyuk, so it’s no wonder that ‘Natalie’ has some of the most revolutionary and realistic sex scenes in Korean cinema. The film’s opening sequence is shockingly vulgar, and it quickly becomes clear that you’re in for an erotic thriller. Overall, most viewers did not enjoy ‘Natalie,’ yet its sexual provocation more than compensates for the lack of interest.

Lies (1999)

‘Lies’ is another disputed Korean film about a sadomasochistic relationship between a guy in his 30s and a young 18-year-old schoolgirl. Many various films (particularly in Hollywood) have not shied away from portraying BDSM in a variety of ways. While most regular moviegoers are aware with the ’50 Shades’ trilogy, it pales in comparison to ‘Lies.’ The basic premise of ‘Lies’ is so divisive that the author of the novel on which the film is based was imprisoned for writing something so odd. All is fair as long as filmmakers realize their objective; unfortunately, as artful as the ‘Lies’ sex scenes appear, they come off as porn.

Obsessed (2014)

The idea of ‘Obsessed’ is identical to that of the Hollywood film ‘The Aftermath.’ A South Korean colonel, well-known for his gallantry throughout the war, falls in love with his Captain’s wife. Soon after, he captures her attention, and the two embark on a passionate yet scandalous romance.

One of the film’s most notable scenes is when the Captain’s relationship with his wife begins to deteriorate and she begins spending more time with the colonel. One day, the two of them are locked inside a car while it rains outside, creating the ideal environment for the start of their affair. Before they realize it, they’re kissing and having sex in the front seat of the automobile.

The Housemaid (2010)

The story revolves around Eun-yi, a poor Korean lady who is compelled to work as a domestic helper at Hoon Goh’s opulent home. While working there, she quickly discovers that Hoon’s word is taken very seriously by everyone who works for him. As a result of this, she quickly becomes a victim of his seduction and agrees to it despite knowing that he has a pregnant wife. She is forced to confront the dire consequences of her actions in the events that follow.

The film’s crucial sex scene is the one that marks the start of their slanderous relationship. When Hoon enters into Eun’s room with a bottle of wine, she immediately understands his true intentions. She is initially hesitant and uncomfortable with the act as he begins to seduce her. But, in the end, she succumbs to the temptation as well. This sequence does not go all the way with its depiction of sex, but it does lay the way for the film’s overall plot.

The Taste of Money (2012)

A massive mansion on the outskirts of Seoul houses one of South Korea’s wealthiest families. The family’s head is a successful businessman, but it is his wife who manages all of their domestic matters. Baek also has a personal secretary who handles frequent illicit actions that jeopardize their firm, and he hopes that one day he will be as wealthy as his employers. But it just takes one spark to knock out the power in this house, and what follows is a tale of lies, slander, and treachery.

‘The Taste of Money,’ like other political plays, uses sex scenes not just to thrill a viewer, but also as a story device that reflects on the psychology of its protagonists and their distorted desire for power. There are multiple sex scenes scattered throughout the film’s duration. But there is one sequence in particular that is both controversial and entertaining. While aboard an airplane, two of the film’s main protagonists experience a burst of sexual energy. Before anyone notices, they sneak into the restroom together and make love without even entirely undressing. While the rest of the world tries in vain to join the Mile High Club, ‘The Taste of Money’ makes it look easy.

The Isle (2000)

‘The Isle,’ directed by Kim Ki-Duk, is a critically praised drama recognized for its gruesome yet aesthetic sequences. The story is set at a rural lake that attracts numerous fishermen from faraway lands. To make ends meet, Hee-jin operates her own bait and sleeps with these fisherman. Another of those fishermen, Hyun-shik, commits suicide and is saved by Hee-jin, but when he makes any approaches toward her, she rejects him. Following this, he attempts suicide by eating fish hooks, but Hee-jin saves him once more and even heals him back to health. Hee-jin becomes increasingly obsessive as their love progresses, and he begins to kill anyone who threatens their relationship in any way.

Against the backdrop of a watery setting, ‘The Isle’ persistently depicts edgy and frightening sex scenes. It’s the kind of film that gets under your skin and remains there for a while, but it’s not for the faint of heart. There is one sex scene in which a couple makes love in the confines of their home, and it appears to be extremely tempting at first. In a horrifying twist, an intruder breaks into their home and murders them. The film’s final scene appears to be so terrifyingly irrational that it entirely defies what we know about genital anatomy.

A Frozen Flower (2008)

‘A Frozen River’ is an erotic period drama set during the Goryeo Dynasty and largely based on Gongmin of Goryeo’s life. The film is not historically accurate for the most part, yet it vividly depicts an entire era of Korean history with vibrant images and a colorful ensemble of characters. Even the film’s sex scenes accomplish their objective admirably. Although almost all of them are fairly gruesome, they are simply used in the plot to depict the characters’ developing and fading emotions. ‘A Frozen River’ is a must-see regardless of what you’re looking for, whether it’s a classic that takes you on a voyage to a whole other world or just an R-rated movie with some daring nudity.
