The two reportedly kissed as the dinner mood grew raucous after a number of toasts.

Kim is known for his “no-look pass” of his suitcase to an assistant, whose image went viral news in May. Yoo represented the Bareun Party to vie against the incumbent President Moon Jae-in in the 19th presidential race.
Outside of Korea, a handful of murals depicting world leaders kissing each other on the lips have attracted eyeballs, but this is possibly the first time that Korean politicians have shared a high-profile smooch.
In May, right after winning the presidential election, President Moon was kissed on the cheek by South Chungcheong Province Gov. Ahn Hee-jung.
