I’m also a part of the K-drama Amino community*, and every weekend the curators give out challenges for its members to encourage content creation. I had fun doing last week’s challenge so I decided to repost it here.
The task in the #MostOutrageousMoments Challenge is to select specific scenes from dramas that are downright ridiculous. And we all know there’s plenty of ’em in the whole dramaverse. But who doesn’t want a drama that can make us laugh, even if it means cringing in disbelief?
My list contains scenes from the following dramas, so be careful for SPOILERS:
• You’re Beautiful
• Let’s Fight Ghost
• Another Oh Hae Young
• You Who Came from the Stars
• Kill Me Heal Me
• Come Back Ahjussi (Please Come Back Mister)
Also contains some slightly spooky images.
Runner up: The vomit kiss (You’re Beautiful)
Where to cringe more? Park Shin-hye’s signature open-eyed kiss, or her subsequent vomiting?
Germophobe or not, I’d faint too if someone hurls at my face. Just. Eww.
5. The scene that made me gasp: The shocking (in more ways than one) first cameo (Let’s Fight Ghost)
The first episode’s first few minutes is crucial in setting the tone of a drama, and capturing audience attention. Well this one captured mine indeed as it gave me the creeps.
Oh no, he didn’t… Taecyeon hitting a woman??? His character Bong-Pal was quick to remark: he slapped a ghost, not a girl. Ha.
Oh hey there, Lee Se-young. Almost didn’t recognize that she’s the actress-comedienne from Reply 1988 and SNL Korea.
4. The scene that weirded me out in a good way: Hae-young’s tango dance break (Another Oh Hae Young)
You know the heroine has gone cray-cray when, after being quiet and depressed the entire time, she randomly gets up and dances in the middle of the night.
And you know you where she inherited it from when mom joins the party.
And you also know the PD liked it when its screentime ran for over two minutes.
3. The scene that cracked me up *and* sold me lipstick: Song-yi as a caterpillar
(You Who Came from the Stars)
Jun Ji-hyun had many hilarious moments in this drama, but the most unforgettable for me was her transformation as a giant squirmy thing. I don’t know how Kim Soo-hyun kept a straight face while filming this.
Seriously that lip color though…
2. The scene that lowkey turned into a rap battle: the dress code situation (Kill Me Heal Me)
Ahn Yo-na is top-of-mind when it comes to KMHM funny moments. But angsty Shin Se-gi gave understated humor that was also so much fun to watch. Loved Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum’s ad-lib in this scene… all because of a necktie! Simple as it is, it moved up my list for being completely random and totally improvised.
This scene really killed me (and healed me??? )
1. The scene that made me cringe, laugh, and roll on the floor: the ahjussi liplock (Come Back Ahjussi)
This drama is still the funniest I’ve seen this year, thanks to its slapstick bodyswap humor.
When they look like this on the outside :
But the scene cuts to what they actually look like on the inside :
So if it isn’t funny enough that Gi-tak tries to stop Young-soo like this…
Then brace yourself for the worst in the next few seconds (eeep!!!)
What your top LOL-worthy outrageous moments?
