First impression: Crash Landing on You

No. of episodes: 16
Genre: Romance, War, Drama

Native title: 사랑의 불시착
Original network: Netflix, tvN

Honestly, this was not in my list of drama to catch on but I was attracted to it once I read the synopsis of it. Starring the AAAA class leads, Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin, the romance between North and South Korea.

Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye Jin) is a chaebol in South Korea who made an emergency landing in the country that she is not suppose to be in due to a paragliding accident. She met a North Korean special officer, Ri Jung Hyuk (Hyun Bin) who falls for her and been hiding and protecting her in North.

Fancy life

The drama started off with the fancy life that Se Ri has and her complicated rich family, the extreme approach she make just to increase the sale and stock prices for her own business.

After her father was done with his probation, she was called back to the family house and her father announce that she will be inheriting the father’s empire after proving her capability from her own business.

Landed in North Korea

To celebrate how capable she is and how she beat all her brothers and inherited her father’s empire, she went on a paragliding to show her skills on national TV. However, the wind and unexpected tornado sway her to the north.

That is how the leads meet for the first time in the north. Se Ri could not believe she is in the North and ran away with all her might to the south. (Without proper guidance)

Taking in

Jung Hyuk finally caught up with her and saved her from flashing in front of the evil Lieutenant Commander Jo Chul Kang (Oh Man Suk).

Se Ri is a very confident woman who is also manipulative and someone who is all about herself. Unaware of how dangerous the country is and how much the crew is trying to protect her, she thinks that things are simple there.

Learning about life in North

Thankfully, one of the soldiers love to watch South Korean drama in secret and will know some lingos. He is the person that help clarify the differences between conversations.

Really look forward to the progress for the next 14 episodes. How they fall for ech other? What it takes to go back to the South? Can he go to the south with her?

The ending scene of episode 2 shows that they actually brush across each other in Switzerland before and that Jung Hyuk is a son of a very important official in the North hence he is able to travel.
