Crash Landing on You: Episode 4

Things take a bit of a serious turn as we learn more about our leads and their pasts, which explains a lot about the way they live now. They both have a lot of secrets, and unfortunately, an enemy is closing in that’s determined to uncover them. (And I was wrong – these aren’t the captain’s ducklings, they’re obviously the lady’s!)

 
EPISODE 4 RECAP

Jung-hyuk travels with Se-ri to meet the ship that’s supposed to take her home, but before they can make the switch, the North Korean coast guard boards their boat and they’re forced to hide in the hold. The new coast guard chief refuses to be bribed and orders the hold opened, and when he does, he sees Jung-hyuk and Se-ri employing the (supposedly) South Korean method of getting out of trouble — kissing.

Jung-hyuk shows the chief his credentials and explains that he was just taking his fiancee out for some night fishing (and a little pre-wedding get-to-know-you fun, according to Se-ri, hee). It works, and the chief lets them off the hook. But he tells them to head back to shore immediately, making Se-ri miss her chance to go home.

She’s furious, but she decides to stay positive and just think of herself as temporarily lost. She tries to make Jung-hyuk promise to get her home within a week, but he says a “sea control order” has been issued and won’t be lifted for around two weeks. Se-ri snaps that she just wants to be comforted, pointing out that Jung-hyuk has no problem lying when it gets him out of a scrape like claiming her as his fiancee or kissing her.

Poor Jung-hyuk stammers that she told him to do something, and he’s flustered when she says it wasn’t much of a kiss, ha. He’s completely defeated by Se-ri’s illogical logic, but he still refuses to make promises he can’t keep.

Before dawn, Jung-hyuk hears his gate slam, and when he checks the living room, Se-ri is gone. She takes her paragliding equipment (the ducklings salvaged it previously) and hikes to the top of a mountain, intending to try and paraglide home.

Before she launches, Jung-hyuk catches up to her. He tells Se-ri that she landed here because there was a natural disaster, but it’s a clear morning so she’ll be seen and caught. He belatedly realizes that her walkie-talkie is on, just as Chul-kang arrives at the State Security Department and is informed that a suspicious transmission has been pinpointed.

Knowing that it will only take a few minutes for the authorities to arrive, Se-ri tells Jung-hyuk to stay here while she goes down and turns herself in. Jung-hyuk points out that he’ll be in trouble anyway since they think he’s her fiance, so he looks for another way out. He can see the military vehicles approaching, so he grabs Se-ri tightly and throws them both off the edge of the mountain.

Se-ri’s parachute catches, and they gently float together through the air. Se-ri apologizes for taking her frustration out on Jung-hyuk earlier, and thanks him for everything he’s done for her. By the time Chul-kang arrives at the mountaintop, they’re long gone.

Chul-kang goes to his office and calls Man-bok in to ask what he knows. Man-bok hasn’t heard anything strange, but Chul-kang still feels that something is off with Jung-hyuk and Se-ri, and he gives Man-bok some money to buy extra food for his son to entice him to keep spying on Jung-hyuk.

Man-bok goes to buy meat from the butcher in the marketplace, and while he’s waiting, he overhears Jung-hyuk arranging to order coffee beans from the vendor at the next stall. Man-bok’s wallet is stolen as he’s paying, and Jung-hyuk begins to chase the thief while everyone else is still processing what happened. Unfortunately, the thief leads Jung-hyuk right to the local gang’s hideout, and Jung-hyuk finds himself fighting the entire gang alone.

He does a pretty good job, and even pins the gang leader to the ground. He doesn’t see another gang member sneaking up behind him, but luckily, Man-bok arrives and knocks the gang member out. They get out of there, and as Jung-hyuk walks away, Man-bok pulls a small piece of paper from his wallet.

The ducklings sit at Jung-hyuk’s house with Se-ri, who’s still so upset about missing her boat that she stuffs her face with rice crust and sugar, complaining that back home she’s infamous for eating like a bird. She cheers up when Joo-mok tells her that Jung-hyuk asked them to protect her, taking it as a sign that he likes her. Chi-soo says it’s because she’s a troublemaker, so Se-ri asks for her products back, but Chi-soo refuses (“My head has never been so fragrant!”).

Wol-sook comes to tell Se-ri that today is Young-ae’s birthday (the wife of the senior colonel, and thus the unofficial leader of the village women). She’s told to show up later for gift inspection, but Se-ri says that she doesn’t go to other people’s birthday parties and shuts the gate on them, ha.

The director of the Trial Bureau, who threatened Jung-hyuk before learning whose son he is, visits Chul-kang and nervously wonders if he should apologize to Jung-hyuk for that day. Chul-kang says that Jung-hyuk claims to have a fiancee who’s in Division 11, and requests a meeting with the director’s cousin in Pyongyang about the matter.

Se-ri is worried about how she’ll get home, especially when she finds out that not only is Jung-hyuk not very highly-ranked, but that the more senior officers don’t like him. Anxious to get rid of her, Chi-soo tells her about the Preferential Star, an award that offers a chance to get promoted when it’s not promotion season.

The senior colonel gives out the award, so Se-ri shows up at Young-ae’s birthday party after all. She’s just in time to see Myung-sook (Man-bok’s wife) being ridiculed for the frumpy handmade dress she’s brought as a gift. Se-ri makes a few adjustments to the dress and describes it as the hottest worldwide trend, winning over both Young-ae and Myung-sook.

Meanwhile, Jung-hyuk and Kwang-bum drive to the Engineer Repair Unit to look for signs of a secret military truck unit. On the way, Jung-hyuk hears that Se-ri is trying to get him a Preferential Star and he simpers the same way she did about the ducklings guarding her… until he learns that it’s because she sees him as low-ranked, and he huffs indignantly.

Naturally, the soldier in charge of the Repair Unit doesn’t want to let Jung-hyuk in, so Kwang-bum stalls him (for a pretty boy, he can be damn scary) while Jung-hyuk looks around. Jung-hyuk notices blueprints and strange parts being made that match the odd armor on the front of the Kamaz trucks involved in the accidents, and he even swipes a small piece of dark metal before he and Kwang-bum leave.

By the time the birthday party is over, Se-ri is calling Young-ae “unni” (she’s told the wives that her name is Sam-sook), and she convinces Young-ae to put in a good word for Jung-hyuk with her husband. Jung-hyuk rides by on his bike and hears them talking, so he backs up and rides past a few more times until Se-ri sees him (and almost falls off his bike when she does, PFFT).

He denies that he was waiting for her, but Se-ri isn’t fooled for one second. Awww, he’s even padded the bike’s bar, and Se-ri guesses it’s for her to ride on. Jung-hyuk gives her a ride home, fussing at her gently for planning to walk home in the dark. They’re so darn cute.

The ducklings are still at Jung-hyuk’s place when they arrive, and they tell Se-ri that Jung-hyuk bought clams and arranged for them to return to the barracks late tonight. They cook the clams by pouring alcohol on them and setting them on fire, and Joo-mok teaches her how to eat the clams then drink soju from the shells. As the evening goes on, Jung-hyuk sneaks glances at Se-ri, and he smiles at how pretty and relaxed she looks.

Back in Seoul, Se-ri’s family gets together for a meal, and Chairman Yoon announces that he’s giving Se-hyung the company. Se-joon and Hye-ji loudly object, and the brothers start tattling on each other. Se-joon reveals that when Se-ri was named successor, Se-hyung wanted to disclose to the press that she’s actually Chairman Yoon’s illegitimate daughter.

Se-hyung retorts that at least he still sees Se-ri as family, and wasn’t glad she might be dead like Se-joon. Se-joon yells that their mother wanted to abandon Se-ri when Chairman Yoon brought her home, and their mother’s had enough. She remembers Se-ri as a child, standing by the ocean and counting, and she says that they don’t know what happened to Se-ri, so it’s too soon to look for a replacement.

A very drunk Se-ri and Chi-soo play a word game, while Man-bok plays along as he listens from his bunker. Awww, he almost seems jealous of all the fun they’re having.

In the morning, Jung-hyuk hand-roasts the coffee beans he managed to procure, and uses an ancient pour-over coffee making set to make a cup for Se-ri. She wakes up in his bed to the smell of freshly-brewed coffee (I’m so jealous), and Jung-hyuk is adorably pleased when Se-ri proclaims it perfect. He gets ready to leave, and Se-ri pretends to pull a little finger-heart out of her pocket for him.

He gathers Chi-soo and Joo-mok to ponder over what the gesture means, and naturally, only Joo-mok knows that it’s a heart. He explains that the heart means love, and that a finger-heart means the person likes you. Jung-hyuk looks horrified that Se-ri may have taken his kiss seriously and developed feelings for him, and he’s forced to confess that he already has a real fiancee.

In Pyongyang, Dan visits her family’s department store with her mother, who fusses at her for having gotten too thin while studying in Russia. Dan explains that she has to be thin in order to be globally stylish. She chooses an outfit to wear when she sees Jung-hyuk for the first time in years, though her mother thinks it’s too flashy.

Her mother’s frenemy shows up to offer insincere flattery to Dan, and to humble-brag that her own daughter is now married and pregnant with her second child. Dan leaves to go see her old “friend,” and the frenemy tells Dan’s mother that apparently Jung-hyuk volunteered for the DMZ posting to avoid getting married.

Se-ri goes with Young-ae and Wol-sook to the market, where the vendor who sells South Korean beauty products offers them one of Se-ri’s company’s skincare products. Se-ri is overjoyed that her product is so popular it’s even sold on the black market, and when the vendor doesn’t seem to know much about it, she does a whole presentation on it for her new friends.

Insurance agent Soo-chan continues to dig up examples of people who have survived paragliding accidents, terrified that he’ll have to pay out the huge policy Se-ri bought for herself. He and Secretary Hong run into Se-hyung and Sang-ah at the Se-ri’s Choice offices, and Secretary Hong admits that he’s been wondering if Se-ri’s comment that she’s about to go somewhere “high up” meant that she was planning to defect to the North. Se-hyung warns Soo-chan to stop spreading groundless rumors that Se-ri might still be alive.

CEO Jeon takes Seung-joon hunting, and when Seung-joon mentions that he hunted a lot in South Korea, Manager Oh fusses at him for mentioning where he’s from. Seung-joon tells CEO Jeon not to nag him, but CEO Jeon argues that a lot of people will go down if their arrangement is discovered.

Dan locates a taxi to take her to see Jung-hyuk, but the driver (cameo by Park Sung-woong — excuse me, I’m dying here, lol) says it’s too far. Dan keeps offering him more money until he accepts, and soon they’re off to the village.

On the way, the cabbie sings folks songs enthusiastically along with the radio (I can’t, I just can’t), so Dan put in her earbuds to listen to some classical piano music. She takes out a picture of herself and Jung-hyuk – she’s looking at Jung-hyuk, but he’s smiling at whoever is taking the picture.

On a remote dirt road, the taxi’s engine stops, so the driver leaves Dan in the car to hoof it to the nearest village (taking the key with him, LOL). While she’s waiting, Seung-joon drives by after finishing his hunting excursion, and he stops to offer her a ride. He tries his best flirting moves on her and gets soundly rejected, to CEO Jeon’s great amusement.

Chul-kang gets a call from his contact, who says that he looked into it, and there’s no woman of Se-ri’s age and description in Division 11. In fact, there’s currently only one woman in Division 11, and the contact knows her personally.

After dark, the market gets crowded, and Se-ri is separated from her friends. Wol-sook runs to Jung-hyuk’s house and tells him that they lost Se-ri, and he goes into instant panic mode. He rushes to the marketplace, which the women find quite romantic.

Alone and scared, Se-ri stands in the busy marketplace, frozen and unsure what to do next. Something about the situation makes her remember being a child and standing by the ocean, counting to herself.

She counts again, and suddenly she sees a light in the middle of the crowd. She moves towards the light, and as she gets closer, she sees that it’s Jung-hyuk holding up a candle. He looks so relieved to have found her, and when he says shyly that it’s a scented candle this time, Se-ri smiles.

EPILOGUE

When Jung-hyuk finds his coffee-making equipment, he also finds an old camera, lovingly wrapped in fabric. He remembers using it ten years ago in Switzerland, to take pictures of the view from a high tension bridge. Nearby, Se-ri had been recording a goodbye message for her family, having decided to end her life by jumping from the bridge.

Dan had been with Jung-hyuk — they were supposed to be getting to know each other since they’d been promised in marriage. Jung-hyuk had seen Se-ri about to jump, and he’d asked her to take a picture of himself and Dan. He’d led her back to land (and safety), and while Dan looked at Jung-hyuk as the picture was taken, Jung-hyuk had been smiling at Se-ri.

 
COMMENTS

The epilogue reinforces (for me) my theory that Jung-hyuk remembers Se-ri from when they met back in Switzerland. That smile when he first saw her hanging in the tree looked to me like a smile of recognition, and in the time they’ve spent together, he seems to just know her. I think that Se-ri was in too much emotional turmoil at the time to remember Jung-hyuk, but the more I see, the more I’m positive that Jung-hyuk knew exactly who she was the moment he saw her again. You can see the impression she made on him in Switzerland — the way he was smiling at her when she took the picture says it all. And him holding up the candle (scented this time!) so that she could find him is just another symbol of the bond they share… Three times now, when Se-ri has been lost, Jung-hyuk was the light that guided her back to safety. I just love that.

Se-ri is turning out to be a lot more complex than she originally seemed. Knowing that she’s Se-ri’s illegitimate daughter explains all of her family turmoil… why her brothers resent her, why her mother (stepmother, I guess) treats her coldly, and likely why she’s suffered from depression in the past. It even shows why Se-ri seems so flippant all the time — she’s probably deathly afraid of rejection, so she pretends not to care about anything, because not caring is a lot less painful than caring and being hurt yet again. I’m eager to learn more, especially about her childhood and why she and her (step)mother have such a cold relationship, yet Stepmom seems to be taking her side now that she’s disappeared.

I’m pretty sure after this episode that Man-bok will end up helping Jung-hyuk and Se-ri, one way or another. He genuinely seems uncomfortable just listening in on them, and he knows what a good man Jung-hyuk is, and that Chul-kang is decidedly not. Even Man-bok’s wife, Myung-sook, is being won over by Se-ri and already appears to admire her quite a bit. I don’t think it will be long before Man-bok and Myung-sook become ducklings themselves, and are able to help Se-ri and Jung-hyuk from the inside.

For the most part I’ve been able to look the other way regarding some of the show’s sillier or more implausible plot points, because in my mind it’s a fantasy story and not meant to be plausible or reflect real life. But I just can’t do it with the paragliding scene. First of all, it was so badly shot, with the actors obviously in front of a green screen and only their faces filmed — it just looked ridiculous. Then they began having a completely calm conversation about their previous argument, when in that situation, all anyone reasonable would be thinking about was whether they were about to die. But mostly I was rolling my eyes because Jung-hyuk had just told Se-ri she couldn’t paraglide to safety because she’d be seen and caught, then his solution for escaping the soldiers was… to paraglide to safety! Only seconds after saying it wouldn’t work! Still, I love the characters so much that I’ll let this one go, but Show, don’t pull anything like that again, okay? It’s one thing to make an honest storytelling mistake, but please don’t treat your audience like we’re stupid. You’re better than that.

Thanks for the recap and your comments.

I'm just enjoying the show and I don't want to think about the evident plot holes, specially the ones regarding the parachute (which, by the way, was not supposed to have been abandoned in the DMZ?? How did it make its way to NK?? And even more... how is it still working?? And...how is it that Jung Huyk instead of being the one who's grasping Se-ri desperately seems that is jus giving her a hug???). This is fantasy, and I've always loved fantasy from The Lord of the Rings to NK.

My heart is melting with Man-bok. I love his scene time and I want to believe that he will help our couple. In fact find it hard to believe that so far he didn't listen to something odd (for instance, when she's with the ducklings after she couldn't scape).

Anyway. I'm having fun, fun, fun and the OTP is just supercute and have great chemistry together.

And one more thing. I do feel Se-Ri stepmom does care for her. In fact she maybe the only one in her family to really care, more than even her father. I'm willing to see more about this.

It was. They brought her stuff because otherwise it would have been proof that someone landed in the DMZ and that they failed to capture the person. They were covering their butts by bringing Jung-hyuk Se-ri's parasailing equipment.

I am also really enjoying this show, being careful not to take it's over-the-top plot points too seriously. I think this show is like candy, meant to be delighted in, not taken too seriously. It has so many delicious elements: the snarky heroine really longing to belong and be loved, the stern hero with the marshmallow center, the Scooby gang, the ridiculous hi-jinks and the villain who does all but twirl his mustache. I adore it for what it is.

I know I said I was going to drop this - and I don't care about the main romance at all - but every time Kim Jung-hyun is on screen, he is so mesmerising that I may need to keep watching just to see his scenes.

I hope this isn't the beginning of Mindyitis. Even my dongsaeng YKS couldn't keep me watching a drama I wasn't enjoying...

I predicted that the show would feel more whole once Kim Jung-hyun was actually, you know, allowed to be PART of the main plot and play off the characters. Was I right? Well, I wasn't wrong, that's for sure. That man is a gift.

I'm not going to spoil for the later episodes but all I'll say is he is very charming. He's charismatic, every scene he is in you can't help but to be charmed lol. Also I found his character interesting, because underneath his conman facade I see someone with goodness peering through. Also glad to see that he is back after his ordeal a few years ago.

@soulsearch12,

I, too, am glad to see Kim Jung-hyun having a blast as the conman with a heart of gold. He did well as the doomed restaurateur in TIME, but it was a such a heavy drama that I'm thankful to see him in a romp. He was terrific as Mo-ri in REBEL, and elevated that minor role into a memorable character.

@PakalanaPikake,

I checked him out after this show/seeing some of the comments about him prior episodes. And he has that something that captivates the audience. He was also good in the Buzzcut film (KBS)!

I really want to see TIME, but I heard it is depressing and some of the clips show that. But I do love heavy moody love stories, and the cinematography looked nice. I'll put it on my watchlist. Any suggestions on what I should watch from him? Thanks :)

TIME was depressing, but it also had a nice redemptive element that offset the gloom to a degree. Kim Jung-hyun's character was going to kick the bucket before the end of the show anyway -- he just exited a little earlier than Writer-nim had originally planned.

If your taste runs to sageuks -- or even if it doesn't -- REBEL: THIEF WHO STOLE THE PEOPLE is the show that put KJH on my radar. He won Best New Actor for that performance at the 2017 MBC Drama Awards. (Yoon Kyun-sang is great in the title role, and Kim Ji-suk gave a beautifully nuanced take on hated tyrant Yeonsangun. Kim Sang-joong was fantastic as Gil-dong's father. Honey Lee and Chae Su-bin were the bee's knees as the women in Gil-dong's life.) Based on the Joseon novel Hong Gil-dong, it has a terrific ensemble cast, and was penned by the screenwriter of THE KING'S DAUGHTER, SOO BAEK HYANG -- who has an absolute gift for endowing her dramas with memorable characters, even when they are minor roles. In TKDSBH, Choi Ro-woon was such a scene-stealer that she expanded his role, to great effect. I don't know if that's what happened with the Noisy Hongs' antagonist Mo-ri, but I think it might have. Despite limited screen time, KJH managed to make Mo-ri, the foster son of a Really Bad Guy, such a sympathetic character that Beanies were jumping up and down in the recaps when he finally broke with Yeonsangun, in whose service he had ended up working. (Similarly, Woo Do-hwan caught my eye while playing a loan shark's thug in SWEET STRANGER AND ME, and then knocked it out of the park in MAD DOG. And did it again in MY COUNTRY.)

You can also catch Kim Jung-hyun in JEALOUSY INCARNATE. IIRC, he plays leading lady Gong Hyo-jin's kid brother. And Jo Jung-seok is terrific as Hwa-shin. ;-)

@PakalanaPikake,

Thanks for the long detailed response! Much appreciated :) I will admit he does look a bit more mature. I can't believe he played a teenager in School 2017?! Versatile! Ooh, Jealously Incarnate I saw bits here and there but I might need to start again! Thanks!

@soulsearch12,

You're most welcome. Anything to put in a good word for Mo-ri and two excellent sageuks, along with context and background. ;-)

You hit the nail on the head. When Kim Jung-hyun exited TIME, he looked to be in really rough shape, which was not surprising given the reports of eating and sleep issues. The first thing I thought when I saw him back on screen was "He looks so much better with some meat on his bones." The old saw states "The camera adds ten pounds," so actors are under constant pressure to stay on the thin side, and that makes them look drawn. -- Unless they are in roles for which they have to put on weight. Ryu Deok-hwan reportedly packed on 28 kg for LIKE A VIRGIN. For a person of his stature, it would be shocking even if those were pounds. And then he had to get rid of them. Yikes.
https://archive.is/20120715232934/http://koreajoongangdaily.joinsmsn.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=2801904

It struck me, too, that KJH has matured in the interim. I think he's more handsome than ever. His face has filled out, and his cheekbones seem wider. He's not a flower boy -- and that's fine by me.

Aside: Just last night I watched a film from 2003, and what really struck me was the natural appearance of the actors. No plastic surgery, botox, or boob jobs were in evidence. None of the guys looked flowery or androgynous. It was almost shocking. -- Oh, wait. The movie was SPRING, SUMMER, FALL, WINTER... AND SPRING. Kim Young-min, who plays wiretapper Man-bok in CRASH LANDING, is in it. (The Old Monk recently appeared as hospice resident Grandpa Kim in CHOCOLATE. It's one of his few non-Buddhist-monk roles.)

@PakalanaPikake,

Yeah I say more than anything health should always come first. *Also found out that EP 7+8 is postponed till next week for the staff/cast's safety!

I'm always curious to see what becomes of a rookie actor in the beginning of their career.

Yeah it can be tough, add the shooting schedule and etc. then maintaining it is even harder. Yeah if you compare the 2000's K-drama actors to now, you'll get a big case of whiplash. A lot of tanner, buffer, masculine looking guys were the leads back then compared to now-ish. I just hope that out of all, talent and charisma come first!

This is the best interaction ever and you can guarantee I've already screen shot it.

Mindyitis is a terrible affliction @tazzo. Katawasabi has already been infected and there's no known cure. Next thing you know you're marrying an actor in a site wide wedding ceremony and doing a rewatch of all his dramas in a perpetual loop that for some reason never includes a drama called The Beauty Inside. Mostly because it never existed.

Speaking of which, when is @katakwasabi marrying SSR and who is doing the music?

@leetennant from all of the different roles I've seen hip play on a certain Beanies fanwall I'd guess he'd sing all the songs himself, officiate the ceremony, get married, and then end it with a dance number like Cho Jung-Seok in Jealousy Incarnate.

This show is really humanizing North Koreans. Besides the lovable ducklings and gossipy neighborhood ajummas, Dan's mom is my new favorite character. I love her random English and bickering with Dan's uncle.

It is cute how Se-ri is learning about their culture like taking baths and eating clams and the meaning of North Korean words from her South Korean translator Joo-muk. And in return, Joo-muk teaches Jung-hyuk and the ducklings about finger-hearts. Their makeshift family is so uwu.

I said in a previous drama's comment section that i loved that drama because it made me cry, laugh and love the characters and this drama does it again to me. The last sence when Se-ri was alone and scared at the market somehow made me cry. She might look happy and she seems to have eveything she wants but i feel that deep down inside, she is a very lonely and hurtful person. I really love Se-Ri's personality. The way she deals with the situations, the way she accepted and apologized for her wrong doing when Jung-Hyuk told her that she was the one to put them in trouble. I just love her. I've been a big fan of Son Ye Jin since the first time I watched her in Summer Scent. She keeps amazed me at her beauty and acting skill everytime. I also love the amazing natural chemistry between her and Huyn Bin. I do not care about all the silliness and unlogical facts in the drama . I just love, love, love it.

Kim Young-min's Man-bok (as well his wife) doesn't only being treated well by Se-ri and Jung-hyuk, thus getting more and more good impression on them. He may also involved in Jung-hyuk's older brother's murder years ago, so he may have lots of regret. Now even his character arc is like Ji-en (by IU), the character who is under Mr. Kim's own, CEO Do in «My Mister/My Ajusshi». I am currently re-watching «My Ajusshi», so it may just be my problem?

Also, Se-ri's name made me remember a 1999 South Korean movie «Shiri», in which the name came from (as mentioned in the movie) a kind of fish frequently swim to and from the South and the North, so symbolize unification ... Does this drama symbolize something more deeply? I love this drama doesn't demonize the North--certainly the North is kind of backward (they're always out of electricity, as well the corruption is terrible), but the people live their live just like many other in the world, and they are trying to adapt the situation. I love this drama.

Here's my take on this portrayal of North Korea:

I decided before I started this drama that I'd be watching a fantasy North Korea, so I went in with an open mind. After watching 5 episodes, it seems more like a South Korea under dictatorship a few decades ago.

I think the drama is looking for common ground between the North and South, thus showing us similar dynamics, with the gossipy ajummas, ridiculous chaebols, and corruption at the top levels. True, we are not seeing the bleak lives of millions of people, but I think we are seeing some satire of the way communism works - at the end of the day the rich and powerful get to do what they want in capitalist or communist societies. We're seeing that North and South are not so different after all.

Thanks for the recap @lollypip!

That's a great way to think about this world! Honestly, I otherwise just cannot understand how this little universe works, it's so weird. We don't know much at all about North Korea, aside from that it's pretty horrendous for the people inside, so I can understand if it was difficult to research though.

I feel like the plot is portraying the probable North Korean life style close to the DMZ. These folks can probably get ROK TV on the sly, and it certainly would be easier to get South Korean products. The people in the south of North Korea probably have a better time of it than those further north. I've read several stories about South Koreans tying choco pies to balloons and launching them across the DMZ, because they know the people of North Korea love them so much.

Just finished this ep.

The paragliding scene. It would of worked a bit better if she was holding on to him tighter and he was holding on to the loops---im guessing that you steer with?

Jung-hyuk is swoony. He looks at her with such interest and humor and the fact that he seems to feel the need to provide everything for her is doing it for me, lol.

Seri....I like her. She is entitled, but I would probably seem so too in that situation and I grew up poor. But I'm so used to electricity, hot running water, unlimited food option, and fill in the blank. She wasnt prepared to be in this situation, like you would be if you were planning a trip somewhere that you know does not have the amenities you have been used to since birth.
However, i did not like how in the Switzerland scene when she is taking the picture she had the thought that he could do better just based on his looks.
I am loving how the two of them are becoming a couple without really realizing it.

I think that as much as I love the blossoming romance it might be the mom/daughter relationship that will hit hard.

And also so many found family/friendship group possibilities!

Is Man bok the actor from My Ahjussi? The horrible boss?

I was wondering about the last scene and the translation of what Seri said. I also studied in Korea for a while, so from what I understand, the phrase "아 깝 다" can be translated into English in different ways, and sometimes it doesn't fully translate since English doesn't have the equivalent.

One meaning could be "What a waste", or "The guy can do better" since maybe his girlfriend is not that good looking.

Another meaning could be Seri simply meant "too bad he is off the market", which has no judgemental connotation toward the girlfriend. I'm leaning towards the 2nd meaning.

If anyone else also knows Korean, please let us know which translation is correct!

Then I will go with the second, thanks. Translations are so interesting. Though i guess if she did say the first it came full circle with the N. Korean women doing the same about her. Probably a lesson many of us have learned a time or two.

On the first watch my assumption was the first meaning, but after watching it again, Seri said ''남자 가 아 깝 다'' so I'm now leaning on the 2nd meaning >.<

reply

Required fields are marked *

As a Korean native, I can assure you that the first translation is what Se-ri meant by saying "남자가 아깝다".
This expression is casually used when the speaker think that one side of the couple is over-qualified for him or her. When they want to pinpoint that there's somewhat lopsided relationship there, 아깝다 is frequently used.
Meaning - Guy is too good for her, She doesn't deserve him..

I hope that the writer doesn't do the cliche love triangle aspect in the sense where we see a back + forth thing.

DOTS did a great job with giving us 2 couples and showcasing their relationship in full. Let's hope the writer doesn't MLFOS with adding an unnecessary love triangle. (Although who knows? lol) The relationship chart shows how all 4 are interconnected in some way, but it also signifies how the relationship between the conman and the NK fiancee might emerge.

I find it interesting that Seri finds herself more at home in NK (I can't believe I'm writing this out too lol). But it's intriguing to see how the country side of NK (the one w/o electricity and etc) brings out the real Seri imo. The writer paints the capitalistic culture of Korea not in a positive way, with Seri's family and the scenes of the NK woman spinning for tv and it cuts to the woman in SK exercising.

One thing, the tone continues from the prior episodes and I like it thus far. I think the writer is doing a good job with presenting a humanized look on the NK country people and also how the NK government is awful as well. My only gripe is that I really hope that Seri doesn't end up as a damsel in distress (considering in SK she was a BOSS Queen). I mean how much longer can she stay in NK? I hope she does, or else the plot may end up dragging...

The paragliding scene was filmed terribly! They should have at least some hair moving around with the wind and all! But that being said - I have to embarrassingly crawl to a corner to admit - it was also very romantic if you suspend all logic. Basically I hit pause saying this. “Damn this scene is terrible! It’s so darn fake!!! ....But why is my heart pumping so hard and smiling so wide?” LOL I actually rewatched that scene again. The drama is Hyun bin on bodyguard, boyfriend, I’m so hot and I know it - full on mode, there is no way any girl will not fall in love with this kind of male lead!! Without spoiling it - the most recent episode - omg is screen saver worthy - I wanted to take screenshots on my phone hahahahaha

Not gunna lie I'm a fan of Dan's mom when she was telling her daughter that a woman needs some fat on her to look good, lol. What a way to turn Korean beauty standards around a bit.

I really love that Se-ri went from not wanting to be involved with the other ahjummas and then joining them to help Jung-hyuk. I sense that these ladies are going to be a good group of friends/acquaintances for her. And that's what I've been really liking about this drama--besides Jung-hyuk's pouting.

The found family or getting cared for by people who aren't your family is a big theme in this drama. It's kind of heartbreaking really that you have complete strangers being kinder to Se-ri than her own family members.

I’m really not a picky kdrama watcher. Really, I’m not. But the special effects here are really an abomination to film making. The boating excursion was terrible and we can all agree the paragliding one should have just been tossed in the bad idea waste container. I’m sure any wind that they could have faked would have overruled the dialogue, necessitating re-recoding the scene and editing the sound, and they probably don’t have the time for that. Which, in my opinion, they should have just left it out.

And I’m going to be that fan that sticks this one out just for Hyun Bin. Yep, I said it.

Part 1 of 2

Thank you for your recap, @lollypip!

I really enjoy the music in CRASH LANDING ON YOU. In ep. 4, there's a beautiful piano & cello arrangement of "Arirang" starting at 47:30 of the Netflix version, near the end of the word game between Se-ri and the Ducklings. Even as the differences between their countries are highlighted by variations in modern language and culture, the melody of "Arirang" quietly intones their common ancestry. To me, it is very touching. I'm a sucker for stuff like this, which is why WELCOME TO DONGMAKGOL and HEAVEN'S SOLDIERS are two of my favorite Korean movies.

"Arirang" continues to play in the background as Jung-hyuk retrieves his well-used Chemex drip coffeemaker from his student days in Switzerland from its dusty box atop a cabinet. Yay for his reusable cotton filter, which would have saved him a bundle on paper ones. Alas, coffee beans can be had at the market only by special order. Resourceful straight-arrow Captain Ri carefully roasts hulled white barleycorns in the cauldron to make ersatz coffee for Se-ri. *swoon*

I'm ignoring the confusing magical transformation of raw barley groats into perfectly-roasted coffee beans. That was only to emphasize the convincing fragrance that greeted Se-ri when she awakened. And Jung-hyuk's prowess as North Korea's Coffee Prince 2FingerHearts. ;-)

Caffeine and Kdramas, two of my favorite addictions. ;-) Dating back to WWI when naval blockades cut off access to foreign ports, ersatz coffee has long been drunk in Germany and Austria. France and colonial America have had their own versions, too. Acorns, dandelion root, chicory root, beets, figs, and grains such as wheat, rye, oats, and barley were roasted, ground, and brewed as caffeine-free coffee substitutes.

Yay for gallant Seung-joon's rescue of non-damsel Dan. Kim Jung-hyun is looking mighty fine as he flirts away. Now that their paths have crossed, I can't wait to see how they become an item.

Like @lollypip, I've decided to do my darnedest to view CRASH LANDING ON YOU as a total fantasy. Otherwise I will blow my stack over Se-ri's selfishly-entitled obliviousness to the danger in which she repeatedly places Captain Ri and his men. At times, she is such an imperious Princess with a capital P, I have an overwhelming urge to smack some sense into her. Numerous people have already been killed by the ruthless baddies, and it feels to me that anyone could end up a red shirt in Major Cho's crosshairs.

Speaking of which, what's the deal with Seo Dan's father? He is conspicuous by his absence, and that makes me suspicious. Mom the department store magnate seems to be sitting pretty, yet I can't help but wonder about Dad. I'm also curious about Dan’s engagement. On the face of it, it looks like just another marriage of convenience between two powerful families.

Part 2 of 2

I've got to wonder if hyung Mu-hyuk had originally been betrothed to Dan, and Jung-hyuk has not only stepped into his shoes as a career Army officer, but become the replacement groom as well. That would explain the strong "dutiful son" vibe that I've been getting from him – and the utter lack of affection between him and his fiancee. I truly think the only way he could get out of it is if Dan breaks off the engagement – and that would be over Dragon Mom's dead body. Jung-hyuk, however, has given his word, and I've never gotten the slightest inkling that uri honorable captain even considers the possibility of reneging.

Park Sung-woong's cameo as the taxi driver catapulted me back to LIFE ON MARS, another show with a memorable flock of "ducklings." Boy, do I miss those detectives.

ROFLMAO at Jung-hyuk's earnest discussion of Se-ri's finger-heart with Kdrama maven Joo-mok and Chi-soo. The latter's interpretation sounds like something a Klingon would say. ;-)

Re: the puzzling escape from the mountain via paraglider. I understood Jung-hyuk's statement to mean that Se-ri would be shot down by both sides if she tried to cross the DMZ by paraglider without benefit of a tornado. Since they were "only" trying to escape from Major Cho and not crossing the border, they could have flitted off into a nearby valley in the opposite direction from the DMZ. Nice cameo by the Cliff Of Non-Doom.

Not really a spoiler: I finally got a good look at Oh Man-seok's collar insignia in ep. 6, and looked it up here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparative_military_ranks_of_Korea. As a major, he outranks Jung-hyuk. The subtitles at one point referred to Cho Chul-kang as a Lieutenant Commander, which is a naval rank. They have also messed up the Ducklings' enlisted ranks, if the above article is to be believed.

@lollypip makes a very strong case for Jung-hyuk's recognition of Se-ri when he first spotted her in the tree. The flashback to the pedestrian bridge in Switzerland is very telling. Even then, he was acutely aware of her. The smooth way he intervened in her suicide attempt by asking her to take his photo with Dan off of the windy bridge was ingenious. It will be interesting to see if Se-ri even recalls that interlude. I wonder if Dan will remember her as the photographer.

I loved Jung-hyuk's method of searching for Se-ri in the marketplace after dark. He looked like the Statue of Liberty as he held the scented candle aloft as a homing beacon. His thoughtfulness stands in stark contrast to her endless diva-tastic demands. At times, all I can think is that he's too good for her, and deserves better. Now that her illegitimacy has been revealed, I can kind of understand why she is so complicated, but it doesn't give her carte blanche to be an asshat.

Above all else, this is a story about brotherhood and friendship. I love all the interactions between the neighborhood ahjummas. They somehow remind of the 3 ahjummas off of reply 1988. You can definitely notice how hyun bin takes care of his troop and how the eldest soldier in the group leads the younger soldiers while technically still on duty. He initiates drinking among other things.

It might be true that the paragliding scene could have been done better but the people who are in charge of this work might have done it for just the 'extra' effect. Lol

Thanks for the recap, @lollypip!

Why is it that romances between warring factions, between enemies always have such an allure? I suppose it may be because we all deeply believe that love can conquer all obstacles...even hate. So, for enemies to fall in love in the ultimate optimism that love is greater than hate.

I'm so glad that Lollypip pointed out that Jung-hyuk actually led Se-ri to safety, recognizing she was about to jump. I was so daft, when I saw that scene I thought to myself "What a great coincidence that he intervened at the right moment and unwittingly saved her."

I also think the flashback helps to explain why Jung-hyuk would put up with Se-ri's diva ways in the first few episodes. She somehow already touched his heart. Perhaps it was pity or empathy or compassion, but if Lollypip is correct that he does remember her, then it makes sense that he already feels a connection to her. Outside of her potential ability to blackmail him, I really couldn't see why he would provide for her every whim, which seems at times spoiled princess-y. I could understand why she would fall for him - I mean, he's basically Prince Charming in a NK military uniform. RAWR

The show is fantastical, and I'm willing to suspend my disbelief - but I think part of that is the Hyun-Bin Effect . This is the first drama I've seen with him in it, but I can see his draw. Another reason why I am willing to track this drama is that the two leads have really GREAT chemistry...like, OFF THE CHARTS. Some of the scenes, some of the dialogue, is actually quite rough and difficult to deliver. I might even venture to say, it's poor writing, directing or editing (not sure which)...but the two lead actors sell the romance and the attraction. So, I'm in this for the long haul.

I am usually quite intolerant of illogical storylines and bad CG! but for some reason for this drama I accept everything - have been wondering why

Perhaps because the characters are Endearing and grounded even though the premise is ridiculous - it’s good writing that the OTP know they can’t be together And constantly display this and not let their true feelings erupt - if they had fallen in love easily, I would have thrown my popcorn and think come on guys this is North Korea and your life is more important - but now it’s us who’s saying “come on guys, confess already you like each other so much ... whey!” The tables are turned and the audience are the illogical one as their actions are perfectly logical. since know we are illogical we accept all the crazy haha makes sense?

CLOY will be taking a week long hiatus in early January due to the working conditions (cold weather and safety issues). Instead, a BTS will be aired by the network. Just last week, HB bought the entire crew long winter jackets. Considering more than half of the North Korea scenes are filmed outside, in the central mountains, at night, no wonder the filming is hard.

Despite having a three month head start on foreign filming locations, CLOY is still a live-shoot series, meaning that the crew is on a tight one week deadline to get the next episodes finished on time. That is why some of the CG has been terrible because it has been rushed.

CLOY was the first cable drama to surpass 9.0 rating in its first three weeks.

I can't describe how much I liked this scene which beautifully conveyed their budding romance without any words needed..

About the plothole you noticed, I think Captain Ri and Seri paraglided at the other side of the mountain. My theory is that the place Captain Ri refered where Seri will surely get caught if she paraglide there (the place leading to where she previously landed) is different from where the two of them jumped off. However, it was not realistic how Seri could find that spot of the mountain as there was no GPS. I doubt that she knew how to navigate the place.
