Here are all the hottest Korean movie sex scenes ever
For many Western audiences, the introduction to Korean cinema has been through highly popular K-dramas. These stories are often dramatic or comedic romances centered around a single couple. Another feature of K-dramas is they are very chaste, particularly by Western standards, and usually only go as far as a passionate kiss.
Korean films however, are not always so innocent and there are many erotic dramas produced in South Korea. In these films we are able to view sexual themes and how they are dealt with in Korean society in the modern era as well as in the past. We are also treated to some incredibly hot sex scenes. If you want to see a Korean romance that ends with more than just a kiss, here are some steamy examples to get you started.

While The Treacherous references sex constantly there are only a few sex scenes but they are intense and they include a fairly graphic scene between the two female leads. The Treacherous is a wild ride through political intrigue & sexual indulgence.
The Handmaiden is set during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the 1930s and tells the story of a Korean woman hired to pose as a Japanese heiress’s handmaiden with the purpose of seducing her so that others may steal her fortune.

A Frozen Flower
A Frozen Flower tells the story of a king who finds himself repulsed at the idea of sleeping with his new queen. However, he must produce an heir so he employs his bodyguard & lover to sleep with her in the hope that she becomes pregnant. This leads to the queen & the bodyguard falling deeply in love and inducing the wrath of the jealous king.
A Frozen Flower is a gorgeous story about a romance that is at once gentle & intense. The huge flaw of this otherwise captivating film is its problematic take on same-sex romance between the king & his bodyguard.
