  1. tvN’s caption for the latest stills- “I plan to print these pictures to hang them at home. Because my house is out of power and so, I need a light source.” Okay, here’s your light source (but you’ll need the oxygen tank: (Me: Oh by the way, I did light up candles but uri Hyeok-ie put them out with his finger ) Honestly I can watch this drama for visuals alone. Aaww..imagine how blessed our eyes will be by the sheer visuals of our 2Ri/RiRi couple! Alright, let’s take stock. We’re going to have Hyeok-ie crash landing in South Korea in North Korean military uniform to look for his other Ri and the ill-fated betrothed couple crash landing in Switzerland? The story seems to be getting wackier and wackier
  2. “<2010's Best 10-Drama> Coming from “The Star”, to the “Secret” fun..Global fans “Reply” South Korea is known as the 'Drama Republic'. More than 20 dramas are aired every week, and you can watch them anytime you turn on the TV. Through this, one smiles and another tears. The 2010s are no exception. Numerous dramas have been made, and numerous stars have been born. The pop culture team of the Munhwa Ilbo selected 10 best dramas that heated up the 2010-2019 period , based on ratings, headlines and expert recommendations.“ Secret Garden is selected as one of the ten.

  3. More HD still cuts released in the spoiler My translated summary: The released stills today show Ri Jeong Hyeok opposite Cho Chul-gang. While Ri Jeong Hyeok is a top-notch North Korean Officer who boasts of outstanding work performance, and a man of strong character who will not compromise his principles, Cho Chul-gang, played by Oh Man Seok is a confrontational character who holds a high position as a member of the Security Bureau of the People's Armed Forces. Driven by his endless greed and ambition, he is “cold blooded” and is constantly engaged in criminal activities such as illegal digging in the Demilitarized Zone. He will put Ri Jeong Hyeok, who has become an eyesore to him, into crisis, and the confrontation between the two will escalate into dramatic tension. Source: https://n.news.naver.com/entertain/article/421/0004341305 In a separate article: In the podcast "Song Eun-yi & Kim Sook Guarantee of Secrecy” which aired on Monday, 4 December, Kim Sook spoke about Crash Landing on You in a North Korean dialect. Kim Sook said that he received the casting offer for Crash Landing on You and it’s for a very important role. He said, “I don't know if I can talk here. I have not received the call for the shooting yet but I have been casted. I'm going to see Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin." Song Eun-yi said, "I've had a stomachache for a while now.” (because of jealousy) The degree of my stomachache will depend on whether or not she gets any scene facing Hyun Bin.” Kim Sook said, "They have kept everything really secret. The script hasn't come out yet. I can only talk about being casted. We haven't even started filming yet. I said I was too busy to have time to shoot a drama, but they told me they would wait for me. They need someone who can use North Korean. I was told that they have fallen in love with my North Korean accent. This is not really true. Anyhow I'll let you know how Hyun Bin’s and Son Ye-jin’s acting is," he said in a North Korean dialect. Song Eun-yi said, "I'll give you a command. Please follow Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin and pick up their voices," she ordered. Kim Sook said, "Yes, if for example, they are practising their script, I'll tap on the recorder,” drawing much laughter.

My translation of tvN’s captions for the still cuts released yesterday - the IG updates are in the spoiler. - How do you spell Mount Everest in English? Ah..Yejin’s nose. - Hyun Bin Oppa, you smell like grass. Beautiful, wonderful, powerful, your charm is colourful. Haha..tvN continues to give us nonsensical, wacky captions
  4. @cybertron Thank you for sharing that TheKThree video. Haha..for those of us who have gone through SEGA times and his previous public relationships like myself, watching that clip brought back memories haha Though I neither understand nor believe in astrology I love the analysis that Hyun Bin and Son Yejin have a connection that goes beyond emotions - Hyun Bin definitely has utmost admiration for Son Yejin as an actress and he has said so many times. At Nego promo when asked to give a reason to watch the movie, he said because Son Yejin is in it. When asked what the attraction for him to pick the project was, he said because Son Yejin was in it. Similarly when Son Yejin was asked why she chose the project she said, because Hyun Bin has agreed to take up the role of Min Taegu and she was surprised that he wanted to challenge himself in this sort of role and she was fascinated about that. They both held each other in such high regard even before they acted in the movie together. I also love the analysis that they are both grounded people and that they won’t give up easily. Being a grounded person and someone who doesn’t give up easily- that’s exactly some of Hyun Bin’s virtues. He went through a few years of parental objection over his passion for acting but he didn’t cave in. Even though he was beaten and even locked up in his room, he still carried on acting throughout his middle school and high school years. He has also talked about how he eventually struck a deal with his father - that if he got into the best university for acting, the father would stop objecting to him acting and he did just that. This is the kind of persevering spirit he has. When he has found what he wants, he pursues it doggedly and achieves it. A person’s inherent personality doesn’t change much, so I’d like to think that his perseverance doesn’t just apply to his passion for acting; it should apply to everything that he pursues including love Once he sets his mind on it, he’s the type that won’t change his mind or give up easily - that’s how he has described himself at interviews as well. I don’t know anything about astrology but I really like what I see as Son Yejin’s effect on him - I like how silly he becomes and how effortlessly he laughs when he’s with her. At the same time, I see the alpha male in him emerging to take charge when the occasion calls for it - like when he took the wires out of her way, when he thanked the staff of Pretty Noona who came to support Nego. Arrgh..I don’t want to ship them but I am faltering again and again. Don’t get me wrong. I just don’t want to be disappointed haha..and I have come to like Son Yejin so much that it may be difficult to accept another for him Haha..please pardon me for rearing my ugly shipper head now and then...if you guys don’t mind I’ll appear as a guest occasionally
  5. Kim Jung Hyun And Hyun Bin To Show Contrasting Charms As They Clash On “Crash Landing On You” Hyun Bin and Kim Jung Hyun will be captivating viewers with their contrasting charms in tvN’s weekend drama “Crash Landing on You.” “Crash Landing on You” tells the story of Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye Jin), a wealthy South Korean heiress who is forced to make an emergency landing in North Korea during a paragliding trip due to unexpected high winds. There, she meets North Korean officer Ri Jung Hyuk (Hyun Bin), who falls in love with her while hiding her and trying to protect her. In the drama, Hyun Bin plays Ri Jung Hyuk, a North Korean officer who is always perfect at his job and does things by the books. Though he appears cold, he is someone who always looks out for his people and takes care of them. Meanwhile, Kim Jung Hyun takes on Ku Seung Jun, a young, charismatic businessman who will do whatever it takes if he can make a bigger profit. The new stills give a glimpse of how the two characters will be different. While Ri Jung Hyuk tries to stick to the rules in everything he does, Ku Seung Jun puts his personal greed above all else. The two of them will face each other with Yoon Se Ri in the middle. Ri Jung Hyuk was a rising officer with great potential but his future becomes shaky as he starts to help Yoon Se Ri in North Korea. Meanwhile, Ku Seung Jun has a past with her and when they run into each other in North Korea, he approaches her with his true intentions hidden.

Seo Dan is a cellist whose father is a high-ranking political soldier and mother is the president of Pyongyang’s top department store. These two women with wealthy backgrounds and high self-confidence herald a strange relationship with a love triangle surrounding Ri Jung Hyuk. Yoon Se Ri falls in love with Ri Jung Hyuk after making an unexpected landing in North Korea. Meanwhile, Seo Dan is his fiancée who is bold and pure when it comes to her feelings for him.

  7. Here’s my translation of the articles accompanying the new still cuts released today. I have left out the repetitive parts about what the drama is all about etc. But allow me to spazz a lil about Hyun Bin first. He is looking so indescribably gorgeous haha..aish..the still cuts just keep getting better and better! My poor heart! In the drama, Hyun Bin will play the captain of North Korea's front line security force. He is thorough and rigorous when it comes to carrying out his work and has an outstanding external appearance. As a soldier, he is a character with a strong sense of responsibility, however, he is also warm on the inside. So, he will portray the coexistence of strength and warmth in his character. Hyun Bin said, "Ri Jeong Hyeok is a special officer from Pyongyang who comes from a prestigious background that comprises a multi-generational lineage of high-level military elites. He is a tough, restrained figure with uncompromising principles against injustice but has a warm inner side." These opposite charms will appear in the three-dimensional character of Ri Jeong Hyeok and that will make his character stand out. In addition, Hyun Bin also revealed the painstaking effort he has taken to portray Ri Jeong Hyeok. He said, "I want to use actions to convey Ri Jeong Hyeok’s inner feelings, so I am very concerned about how to express his inner feelings through actions.” Hyun Bin said, “Because the character's background is North Korea, it is very important to be able to speak the North Korean dialect naturally. Since two or three months before the official filming started, he has been preparing for the drama with a Korean language teacher. Because I have some experience (in previous works), there may be parts that felt quite easy, but overall, it is still difficult. In order to look strong, I have also worked hard to gain muscle mass and increase my body weight". The degree of completeness in which he has transformed into Ri Jeong Hyeok, is something that everyone is curious about. Source: https://n.news.naver.com/entertain/article/241/0002984560 Yoon SeRi (Son Yejin) is an heiress who is born with enviable conditions. She is also the CEO who has built her own successful fashion brand. Seo Dan (Seo Ji Hye) who is known as North Korea’s "spicy girl" (meaning "queen with an exceptional beauty”) is a cellist who is frank but upright. The two women who show such perfect credentials and Girl Crush beauty will form a love triangle around Hyun Bin, attracting people's attention. After a crash landing in North Korea due to a paragliding accident, Yoon SeRi will fall in love with North Korean officer Ri Jeong Hyeok (Hyun Bin) who protects her. Seo Dan is Ri Jeong Hyeok’s fiancee. She is very gentle to him on the surface, but at the same time she is unable to hide her feelings of love towards him. In the released photos, the two attract people’s attention with their dazzling appearance that would steal any man’s heart. Yoon SeRi who has seemingly perfect but haughty exterior that conceals a humane and cute inner charms and Seo Dan who has an innocent and uprightly honest side beneath her hardened exterior arising from her background of uncompromising training as a performer - although both look alike at first glance, each will exude a different charm. It is highly anticipated as to what kind of chemistry the two women, each at the highest level of the Korean society on each side of the Korea peninsular will show us in the drama. Source: https://n.news.naver.com/entertain/article/404/0000257639 Today, Hyun Bin’s other fan group DCHyunBinGallery sent a coffee truck to Crash Landing on You staff and cast. The caption in the banner says Hyuk-ie is preparing delicious coffee at Face Restaurant to make a Crash Landing on everyone! (I think this “face” reference will likely be a running joke for a while, let’s get ourselves familiar with it. Remember at the script reading the ahjummas talked about Hyuk’s face? That his face is a national monument that is so precious that it should be protected as a national treasure? Haha..his Korean fans have been having fun talking about his 얼굴 (oelgul meaning face). By the way, I noticed that Netflix has started to use the convention of “eo” for Jeong Hyeok (this is also the convention that I generally prefer but when it comes to Hyun Bin I can’t bring myself to use this convention haha..but yes, his name is pronounced as Hyeon Bin in case you are not aware.)
  8. VAST is counting down to Crash Landing on You. Are they going to give us these hidden Hyun Bin goodies one a day till drama premieres?
  9. Son Ye Jin Thanks Kim Hye Soo For Sweet Support On Set Of “Crash Landing On You” Son Ye Jin was thrilled to receive a coffee truck from her senior Kim Hye Soo!

Her existence itself is reassuring, and she’s the coolest sunbae that I always look up to!! Thank you.” Son Ye Jin is currently filming her upcoming tvN drama “Crash Landing on You” with Hyun Bin. The banner on the coffee truck reads, “I’m looking forward to Son Ye Jin’s ‘Crash Landing on You’!! To the staff and actors who are working hard in the cold, fighting!” The one next to Son Ye Jin says, “Son Ye Jin’s ‘Crash Landing on You,’ fighting!” Both banners say, “Featuring Kim Sun Young,” suggesting that the support is also directed to Kim Sun Young, who will be appearing in “Crash Landing on You” as well.
