Kim Jung-hyun to play elite socialite in Love’s Crash Landing
Mori’s back!!! Kim Jung-hyun (Time) is returning to the smallscreen after taking a one-year hiatus from acting due to physical and mental health issues. According to the latest reports, he’s joining the cast of Love’s Crash Landing.
It’s about a South Korean heiress, played by Sohn Ye-jin (Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food), who crash-lands in North Korea in a paragliding accident. She’s hidden and protected by a military officer in the North Korean army, played by Hyun Bin (Memories of the Alhambra).
Kim Jung-hyun is playing the role of Gu Joon-hee, a businessman who appears suddenly amongst high society, like brightly burning comet. He’s wealthy; handsome–and possesses an extraordinary intellect. I’m not sure where he fits in with the whole Sohn Ye-jin-Hyun Bin love story, but apparently his character will leave without a trace, and end up interacting with a diverse array of people on his own journey.
Either way, I’m super stoked about Kim Jung-hyun coming back to dramaland despite the Time scandal and his abrupt departure from that show. Hopefully this time around, conditions will be better, and he won’t feel too overworked.
The writer of Legend of the Blue Sea and You From Another Star, Park Ji-eun, will be teaming up with PD Lee Jung-hyo (Romance Is a Bonus Book, Life on Mars) for the drama. Love’s Crash Landing will air on tvN starting later this year.
