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.
