South Korea is known for its popular R-rated films despite being quite conservative – even when it comes to kiss scenes in popular dramas. But as for their movies, that’s a whole other world. There are plenty of famous Korean erotic movies that you can’t watch without your ass squirming around. Sometimes, it’s too much, I need to pause. Most of these erotic films have sexual themes related to Korean society – be it in the past or the modern era. And if I’m right, you guys watch these films for one of two reasons: for the story – pfft! as if; or the actors who are in that film (that’s more like it). I know you kinky K-fans watch these films just so you can see your favourite actors get it on. If you fall into the above category, well then this is news for you.
Actors are good at one thing – acting. But how much can an actor act though? I mean, kissing, cuddling, fore-playing is pretty normal, but when it comes down to actually having sex or “pretending” to have it on screen, I’m not so sure about that. Some of the films like The Frozen Flower, The Treacherous and The Handmaiden have pretty explicit scenes, so it’s kind of hard to believe that they didn’t have some sort of sexual encounter on screen while filming the movie. So here are a few K-actors who are rumoured to have actually had s*x on screen in the midst of making a film.
1. JO YEO-JEONG
Jo Yeo-Jeong, a famous actor now, didn’t really hit fame until her breakthrough acting in the erotic film, The Servant. This movie was turned down by many other actresses due to its immense amount of sex scenes. Jo Yeo-Jeong, however, saw the story behind it and accepted it, and that is when her fame started to rise. In 2012, she acted in yet another R-rated film, The Concubine. Now, she is pretty much known as a famous R-rated film actor. In The Concubine, Jo Yeo-Jeong was expected to portray a woman with wild desires who waited for the longest time to have sex with the King. When fans saw the scene and how realistic it looked, it was hard for them to just look past it as acting. I mean, she is a talented woman, but the fans and the internet think otherwise. The movements, hip sways, panting and thrusting didn’t seem much like acting, and more like something was actually taking place there. Although we can’t tell for sure, Jo Yeo-Jeong is one of the actors said to have actually done IT on screen.
2. BAE DOONA
Known for her one-of-a-kind style and performance on screen, Bae Doona has also acted in several R-rated films. One of her most famous performances is for Plum Blossom, in which she co-stared alongside Kim Rae Won in the year 2000. This movie caused a controversy, as there is a sex scene literally every 7 minutes! The main theme of the movie is sex vs love, and with a good storyline of course. The number of sex scenes in this movie has had fans believing that there is no way in heaven or in hell that Bae Doona and her co-star didn’t actually do it, at least once. If you are not convinced, go watch it for yourself and you’ll understand the theory behind this speculation. But be prepared though – this movie is just filled with unending sex scenes.
3. LEE MIN-KI
Another hot actor that ages like fine wine, Lee Min-Ki has acted in a number of R-rated films like A Good Day To Have An Affair and For The Emperor. For The Emperor, which was released in 2014, has one sex encounter between Lee Min-Ki and his co-star. Although the film has only one sex scene, it is portrayed more realistically than if it was just an act. Which leads to the question, were they really doing it? From the tension that leads up to the scene to the climax, none of it seems like the actors, specifically Lee Min-Ki, is just putting on a show. The fans had then just speculated that Lee Min-Ki and his co-star were indeed really doing it… or they are just incredibly amazing actors that go on and off every time there’s a “CUT”.
4. KIM TAE-RI
If you are a fan of Korean erotic movies and have never watched The Handmaiden, you clearly live under a rock. This movie presents us multiple intimate scenes that involves both solo and some double action, accompanied by some crazy twists. Kim Tae-Ri plays Sook-Hee, who sets out on some mission, but later, falls in love with Lady Hideko. This movie celebrates female sexuality and was voted the most erotic film of 2016 by Vogue. The scenes between Kim Tae-Ri and her co-star were beyond acting, as one could tell. Which leads to the rumours that Kim Tae-Ri actually made love to her female co-star on screen. Go watch it but NOT with your parents. This movie will definitely destroy all innocence. It ruined MINE.
5. JUNG WOO-SUNG & ESOM
Scarlet Innocence was one messed up sexual movie that no one can forget. Especially not the fans after watching the intimate scene between Jung Woo-Sung and Esom. Too good to not be true, ya’ll. It was like they did it all in one go. An actor can act out pretty much anything, but to be actually aroused while doing scenes like this is unavoidable. Likely, the chances of actors actually doing it on screen isn’t low. The scene between Woo-Sung and Esom captured all realistic details when having sex. The actors ended the scene with red, sweaty and heated faces, making fans and the internet question their acting.
So, there ya go. What do you guys think? Did they actually do it, or are they just surreally-amazing actors?
