If you've been following Cosmo.ph, you probably know that shirtless men have a dear place in our hearts. Epic bachelor bashes and Insta-stalked men aside, we love those random nekkid TV moments we totally didn't see coming. Remember when James Reid went shirtless on On the Wings of Love and when the world got stunned with that locker room scene starring a half-naked Ross Butler in Riverdale?
K-dramas have gifted us with these wonderful surprise scenes as well. Sure, they aren't really necessary story arcs, but you can never underestimate the power of a Hallyu hottie heating up the tv screen.
So Ji Sub in Oh My Venus (2015-2016) Episode 1
The drama was all about achieving #fitnessgoals, and the lead actor showed off how he's the perfect fitness icon by doing pull-ups like it's NBD.
See more skin as he cools down in a bath after working out. Aigoo!
Rain in Please, Come Back Mister (2016) Episodes 2 and 3
In this series, a man who worked to death (literally) finds his soul possessing another man, who has a stellar body that he was totally amazed with. Doesn't he look 3D-enhanced or something?!
Check it out further as he shows off his new bod to a friend:
Song Joong Ki in Descendants of the Sun (2016) Episodes 1 and 2
"Big Boss" was working out when Dr. Kang Mo Yeon called him. If only she knew how hot the person on the other line was…
A scene with Sergeant Major Seo Dae Young (played by Jin Goo) and some shirtless marching followed the pilot episode (and more shirtless marching ensued in Episode 3, but too bad Big Boss didn't march along with his troop).
Kim Woo Bin in Uncontrollably Fond (2016) Episode 4
Who else thinks that morning routines would be better if you have this to look at? *sigh*
Appreciate his physique more in this BTS (and continue to root for Woo Bin's recovery with us!)
Jung Il Woo in Cinderella and Four Knights (2016) Episode 5
The ~*sexy*~ character made Eun Ha Won (played by Park So Dam) want to get naked, too, and swim with him.
Here's an even sexier encounter in the showers, where he reiterates how he'll "steal her away" from her fiancé. It's going to take a lot of resolve to resist that.
Ji Chang Wook in The K2 (2016) Episode 4
The king of thrillers knows a thing or two about heart-stopping action—but this fight scene in all his naked glory takes the cake!
Get another sneak peek of his hotness in Suspicious Partner (2017) Episode 1.
The Princes of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo (2016) Episode 1
So. Many. Abs. WE CAN'T EVEN! Too bad, 4th Prince Wang So (played by Lee Joon Gi) didn't partake in that heavenly bath!
The Men of Hwarang (2016-2017) Episode 8
Here's another historic bath with so many gorgeous male specimens we don't mind peeping in on.
Nam Joo Hyuk in Weightlifting Fairy: Kim Bok Joo (2016-2017) Episode 1
Okay, this scene sadly doesn't end well for the character, but at least we get treated to the actor in nothing but those tight swim trunks, right?
Although it gets more exposure throughout the #SWAG rom-com, his TDF swimmer body can be best appreciated in this fan-uploaded clip:
Park Seo Jun in Fight For My Way (2017) Episodes 3 and 8
We already had high hopes for this series after a teaser with this scene was released. Of course, the actor adorably belting out of tune fresh out of the shower was only a tiny part the fun—his perfectly sculpted upper body was really what we marveled at. Damn.
By his debut match as an MMA fighter, we knew we were goners. He truly is ON FIRE! (Here's to hoping we get more topless scenes soon!)
Honorable Mention: Gong Yoo in Coffee Prince (2007) and Big (2012)
Sadly, our favorite oppa didn't go shirtless in Goblin, but he was one of the OG K-Drama guys who awakened our ~*senses*~ when he showed his half-naked glory in this classic (skip to the 3:39 mark if you can't wait):
Watch this preview of his other drama and see how his fine physique has evolved over five years (let's all rally for a topless Gong Yoo in his next project, G?):
There are probably other glorious shirtless scenes we missed, so please refresh our memory! We'd really appreciate it! *wink*
