Crash Landing On You is one of the most popular K games of all time. The movie starred Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin and caused a stir among the audience as it received positive reviews. The show broke records for viewership in South Korea. While many were impressed with the show, others found the military service too romantic. Three North Korean protesters also participated in the demonstration. Scroll down to find out what he had to say about it.
The show follows the story of Ye-jin’s Se-ri, a South Korean heiress who accidentally crosses the border after being caught in a typhoon. He arrives in North Korea and meets the soft-hearted Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok.
Jeong-hyeok and a few of his fellow soldiers come up with a plan to help Se-ri return to their country without knowing about the military. They do well, but another drama follows them, and Jeong-hyeok and his soldiers travel to Se-ri in South Korea. Throughout her time in North Korea, Se-ri develops good relationships with her neighbors and realizes that even her enemy’s country has good-hearted people.
Kang Ha-na, a North Korean defector who fled her country, spends several years in China and eventually finds her best friend in a South Korean soldier, after acting in a show. In an interview with The Washington Post, Kang revealed that it is possible for a North Korean man to make advances on his South Korean lover as he did himself. He also said that although his life was full of “difficulties” before he fled his country, it was not only “suffering”. He felt good when he saw how the show showed good-hearted people from the North. He said: “There are real people in this world, and different things happen there. What I liked about these stories is that they show people of different races living in North Korea.” However, Kang added that, unlike Se-ri’s neighbors, people are not as helpful as they used to be because of their financial problems. .
Another paraplegic, Kim Geum-hyok, who also worked as a consultant for Crash Landing On You, spoke about the conditions of people living in North Korea’s capital, Pyongyang. Kim said that the people of Pyongyang, who can afford to send their children abroad for education, are very expressive and try to add English words to their conversations.
In the action of Ri Jeong-hyeok and his army supporters in Crash Landing On You, Jung Ha-neul, another rebel, recalled his time as a military guard. Jung revealed that he was happy to see how the show also portrayed the innocent and good-hearted people living in the North. However, Jung added that he did not remember anything interesting since he was deployed as a military guard. One thing he understood was what the soldiers did when they first arrived in South Korea and said: “When the soldiers first arrived in Seoul for the show, they were shocked and surprised. “The burgers I tasted for the first time in Seoul were amazing.”
Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin starrer Crash Landing On You is available on Netflix.
