What is there to love about Crash Landing On You? Well, better to ask, what is there to NOT love about this drama. We give you 7 reasons why we love it!
1. It’s a romantic comedy between two completely opposite people
You will laugh your way through the story and enjoy how they fall in love. She is bold, beautiful and intelligent. He is serious, reserved and deeply affected by a family tragedy.
They don’t realize it initially, but their pasts are connected.
2. It involves mystery, action and family politics all in one action-packed story line
Ri Jeong-hyeok is trying to investigate how his brother died, as well as uncover smuggling of goods between South Korea and North Korea
Yoon Se-ri is fighting her family demons and the conspiracies from both her brothers who are trying to ensure that she never returns to South Korea so they can take over business.
Every episode ends on a cliff hanger. There are so many twists and turns in the story to keep you engaged.
3. The side kicks are so funny, you’ll have a great time laughing at their jokes
It’s so pleasant to see that the humour doesn’t seemed forced but actually tickles the funny bone. You will want to know what transpires between them. You will love how they help the couple. The supporting pair and their story is equally interesting and will have you rooting for them.
4. It’s a clean drama
The story is shot with barely any intimate scenes, yet it’s extremely romantic. That makes it a must-watch.
5. It’s extremely entertaining to observe the contrasting lifestyle of North Korea and South Korea
The series gives you insight into their culture and family values, which at times, you will find very similar to ours – like respecting your parents and how important their opinions are in every aspect of life even if you are turning 40 yourself. You get to witness the beauty of Korea and you will surely be adding it to your travel list. It also shows the softer side of North Korea; how people there are genuine and similar to us.
6. If nothing else, watch it for the art of great story telling
The main concept of the drama is nothing new or out of the box. But the way it has been told, revealing new angles and twists in the tale; that’s what makes it both entertaining and engaging. We bet you’ll fall in love.
7. Last but not the least
Watch it for the good looking Hyun Bin as Ri Jeong-hyeok and Son Ye-jin as Yoon Se-ri. It’s a treat for the eyes. They have both delivered star performances. We can vouch for the fact that Hyun Bin is crush material for many young girls out there! Both of them have acted together previously in a 2018 crime thriller movie – The Negotiation. Their on-screen chemistry is another reason for the success of the drama.
So tell us when you’ll be watching. Crash Landing on You is available on Netflix.
