South Korean heiress Sohn Ye-jin meets North Korean soldier Hyun Bin in Crash Landing on You

The character teaser is out for romance drama Crash Landing on You, starring Hyun Bin (Memories of the Alhambra), Sohn Ye-jin (Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food), Seo Ji-hye (Heart Surgeons), and Kim Jung-hyun (Time). This drama starts off with a strange wind that carries paragliding heiress Sohn Ye-jin off course, and she accidentally lands in North Korean territory.

Hyun Bin plays the North Korean officer who discovers her, and somehow ends up hiding her for the time being. Whilst protecting Sohn Ye-jin from his own country, he ends up falling in love with her.

In the newly released teaser, we get a quick introduction to each of our main players.

A determined Hyun Bin, introduced as a special tactics officer, salutes another North Korean officer as we hear him say he wants to protect something (or someone?). A smiling Sohn Ye-jin is introduced as a South Korean heiress of the top 1%, and she tells Hyun Bin that she’s so famous person that he would keel over if he knew. We get a quick shot of her at the grand opening of a fancy store before we’re introduced to Pyongyang beauty and North Korean one-percenter Seo Ji-hye. She rocks a pair of sunglasses as she strolls through a marketplace and we hear her say she’s been told to grow a close relationship with Hyun Bin.

Then appears Kim Jung-hyun, a young-and-rich South Korean scammer who is targeting North Koreans on some “business.” He disembarks from a train in North Korea and we hear him threaten someone by saying, “If even a hair on my head is damaged, your source of money will disappear.”

This cast has so much potential! I think we may be in for a fun ride either way, but I’m a little worried about how they’ll handle the North Korean aspect of the plot. We only need to wait a few more weeks to know for sure however, as tvN’s upcoming weekend drama Crash Landing on You will begin airing on December 14.

We can suspend belief to watch entertainment dramas. But for fiction to work needs some basis in fact. The more information that leaks out, the more off-the-rails the story gets.
The idea of a South Korean scammer targeting North Koreans is a ludicrous idea. North Korea is under international sanctions. It has no cash reserves. It is run by a totalitarian dictatorship. Outside travel is restricted to diplomatic channels. Who is he going to scam in a poor country?
I really wonder if this is a bad attempt to modernize the Wizard of Oz film as a fantasy rom-com: SYJ is Dorothy blown off course into an imaginary world. Is HB the tin man looking for a heart?

He's scamming the NK 1%. But it still seems implausible to me, can SK citizens even go to NK? I suppose it would take a con man to make that happen.

OK, even more unbelievable is how this love story is going to work out. Is Little Miss Rich Girl going to settle for life in N. Korea. Mm, don't think so. Is Captain Life-Saver going to be corrupted by her capitalist values? Maybe not? But somehow he gets to Switzerland? Just a little suspension of disbelief required there.... Wouldn't it have even more interesting if instead of a North Korean officer, he had just been someone who lived off the grid because he had turned his back on wealth and had no use for a rich and spoiled socialite?

Just like the truth is told by many fiction are. These stories arent suppose to inform rather entertain them. Just with what we got we cannot accompany another idea just by a fraction of a plot summary.

Actually, NK has a thriving black market. Money and goods move, just under the table. I was raised in communist country. It’s 100% not like it seems from outside. It’s somewhere in the middle. Of course corruption thrives in such a country, which to me even seems MORE plausible that scams persist. In a lawless, black market country, precisely everything is possible.

It seems like the writers lack even basic knowledge of North Korea, like it is some exotic fictional country made up just for the drama.

I’m “meh” about both actors and don’t watch their works usually, but considering that everyone is already hating it... I expect it to do well lol I noticed, that the more drama is hated before premiere, the more popular it would become at the end)))
btw, why there is no news about Itaewon Class script reading? Kim Da Mi looked so good with short hair.

I don’t understand this plot. There’s nothing funny about landing in In In North Korea people get torture and killed. A soldier falling in love with a heiress and trying to hide PLEASE. A scammer trying to scam a North Korean that’s also not believable. They should have picked a different country or setting. There’s nothing appealing about this drama except the main leads.

I think the con man is doing something with sunglasses. The kind that are so old-looking that they seem modern again, except that in NK theyre still wearing the original old ones. That's it, he's running some kind of sunglasses-export biz from NK.

The premise does sound a bit like this could be a mess but then again the writers other dramas also had quirky setups and they turned out good so I wont make an assumption before seeing it. Maybe it does have a fantasy element and that could somehow make things work.

Ooh, the strange wind! Looking forward to how you will play the wind mischievous, dastardly, soft caresses, hard snapping blows, hot, cold, ... so many possibilities, such potential!

@hebang,
All I know is that @yyishere is going to give us the full range of aeolian expressiveness. I'm not being a blowhard about her acting, either. From dust devils to zephyrs, she's going to blow us away with her delivery. This isn't just hot air from a fangirl. ;-)

Omo! @yyishere, you've made my day! You started out portraying geographical features (salutes Cliff Of Non-Doom) and have become a force of nature!

*holds onto hat*

It figures you would be a "strange wind." Which is infinitely better than an ill wind. ;-)

it was the "strange" that did it for me. Glad you know me so well. Though "blustery" would be appealing, as well.

@yyishere,
I'm sure you'll do just fine as a "whispering wind," as long as you carry a big stick. Alas, the 1952 Patti Page song casts a foreboding shadow on the aftermath of that treetop landing.

Wait! @yyishere, you've already committed to portraying Hyun Bin's dogtags!

Knowing you, you can easily handle dual roles. It will be a breeze for you to do both, as that errant zephyr will not last long. Here's hoping we get to actually see you as the dog tags (hint, hint), otherwise we'll have to content ourselves with only hearing their metallic clinking as Hyun Bin's chest heaves while scampering around in the DMZ.

Here's a little something to get you in the mood for your "strange wind" role.

OMG! I can't wait to watch the dual roles! Strange wind (but I'm going to assume this will include many other wind nuances) and dog tags both in the same drama. Now I have to watch. Is it too much to hope for sunglasses too? 🌬💨🕶😎

Everything about this drama sounds unbelievable, and idk if it's a good thing that we already need to suspend our disbelief before it's even aired.

Some of this writer's past works (You From Another Star, Legend of the Blue Sea) have been the good kind of wacky, fun and sometimes cracktastic... but I think the fantasy element in those helped.

Great cast though.

My Hyun Bin is back! Yay! and he is back with gorgeous Sohn Ye Jin.

There will be many cliches in this drama, but i think i am gonna like it. This show will receive higher ratings even with a loosely woven plot.

I've gotten so revved up by the prospect of CRASH LANDING ON YOU that this morning I rewatched Sohn Ye-jin's 2003 film THE CLASSIC, with Cho Seung-woo, Zo In-sung, and Lee Ki-woo. Imagine my surprise to learn that the vaguely-familiar actress who plays one of the leading lady's school chums is Seo Young-hee, alias Baek Yi-kang's mom Yoo-wol in NOKDU FLOWER. She wants to be an announcer, and constantly flaunts her elocution at the drop of a hat. LOL!

If you liked LOVE RAIN, there's a good chance you'll enjoy THE CLASSIC.

This movie has terrific music, including some classical pieces. I've posted a couple of tracks on my fan wall:

Enjoy while you tide yourself over until CRASH LANDING ON YOU takes off in 3 weeks. ;-)

I don't really get the popular opinion that this is going to flop/ be a mess? A lot of dramas have horrible a synopsis before they premier...maybe they're just leaving the rest of the plot out because it's a spoiler? They do that sometimes.

...Or maybe I'm just being blindly optimistic cause it's Hyunbin and Sohn Yejin🤷🏻‍♀️

Hunky North Korean conservative male falling for legally-blondish rich spunky South Korean haired? Oh yeah, PLEASE! Honestly, the very first drama of 2019 I can’t wait to watch. The rest of the offering had tons of “red flags” even before I watched them, and almost everyone fulfilled them. Camellia is a bright spot in 2019 arena. Haven’t watched One Spring Night or Sky Castle but eagerly wait to watch them once I have time. Her Private Life, 100 Days My Prince, Rookie Historian, Touch Your Heart were all dramas I finished watching live. Dropped Hotel Del Luna but I’ll try to pick it up later. All other offerings I either don’t remember even starting or not remember at all or were too bad to mention. Feels like a dismal year. But really no drama I ever anticipated to watch this year than Crash Landing On You. Hope it rights the wrong for forgetful 2019.
