Cho Yoo Soo Bin, one of the rising stars from tvN’s “Crash Landing On You,” has shared some behind-the-scenes stories from the drama. In “Crash Landing On You,” Yoo Soo Bin played North Korean soldier Kim Ju Meok, a K-drama fanatic. After meeting Son Ye Jin‘s character Yoon Se Ri, he hilariously played the middle man between her and his fellow soldiers to “translate” between North and South Korean using his knowledge attained from watching dramas. He commented on working with Son Ye Jin, saying, “She is so beautiful so I was very nervous, but I was able to comfortably act because she took care of me like an older sister.” He continued, “I think our chemistry was even better thanks to her meticulous consideration.” Yoo Soo Bin also referred to Hyun Bin as an actor he wants to be like, sharing, “He has incredible passion for acting. I was shocked to see him work so passionately with the responsibility that one has to have as an actor. He kept us all balanced so we were able to act without concerns.” He added that it was an honor to have gotten to work with Hyun Bin, explaining, “In the future, I want to become an actor like Hyun Bin who does not lose sight of his original intentions.” On top of being a K-drama fanatic, Kim Ju Meok was also known to be a huge fan of Choi Ji Woo and her drama “Starway to Heaven.” As a parting gift, Yoon Se Ri promises to help him meet Choi Ji Woo, which he is finally able to do when he crosses into South Korea. Regarding Choi Ji Woo’s surprise cameo, Yoo Soo Bin shared, “Since we had to act together as soon as we met, I was very nervous and embarrassed. I think she might’ve noticed I was nervous so she approached me first, saying, ‘I’ve been enjoying the drama.’ She even made jokes so I was ultimately able to film comfortably. My meeting with Choi Ji Woo was personally an extremely precious and meaningful scene. I want to thank the writer for including that scene and Choi Ji Woo for acting with me.” Yoo Soo Bin also addressed their parody of an iconic “Stairway to Heaven” scene, saying, “It was originally written in the script but I felt pressured to really make the scene memorable. I didn’t want to purposefully make it funny and make fun of Kwon Sang Woo. I acted as Kim Ju Meok and expressed the scene seriously.” “Crash Landing On You” aired its finale on February 16 and recorded the highest viewership ratings in tvN history.

Lim Kim Jung Hyun recently sat down for an interview to discuss what happened to his character at the end of tvN’s hit drama “Crash Landing on You.” “Crash Landing on You” told 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. Kim Jung Hyun played the role of Goo Seung Jun, a businessman and con artist with a British nationality who had sympathy for Yoon Se Ri and love for Seo Dan (Seo Ji Hye). He began by stating, “The drama ended with so much love being given to it. I think we were able to convey our hearts to all the many people who watched, and I find that so meaningful. The wrap party was great, and I’ve been so happy.” Kim Jung Hyun shared that at the wrap party, screenwriter Park Ji Eun came up to him and thanked him for doing so well in the drama. “She said, ‘Everyone’s going crazy over Seung Jun dying. I feel like my life is in danger.'” Though it had a risky move, it had been one that left a lasting impression on viewers as Goo Seung Jun was shot and gave his life trying to save Seo Dan. Kim Jung Hyun said, “To be honest, even up till when I received the script for episode 15, I didn’t know that my character would be dying. I was shot at the end of that episode so I asked director Lee Jung Hyo if I was dying and he said, ‘I don’t know, but I don’t think so? Things have only just begun for your character, I’m sure you’ll live.’ But then I read the script for episode 16, and I died. I kept reading till the epilogue hoping that my character would survive, but I was still dead.” He added, “Though, as an actor, it would be better for me if I’m able to film more scenes, I was able to feel that Seung Jun was loved by the viewers. I know that there are some viewers who believe that Goo Seung Jun is alive and well somewhere. I think if that’s what people want to believe, then he could be happily living in peace somewhere. If given room for interpretation, I believe he could be alive.” Kim Jung Hyun expressed that he was satisfied about leaving such a big impact on viewers with his character’s death. He said, “When we went to the wrap party after we finished filming the last episode, everyone was talking about how it was a shame that my character died. To have people thinking about and feeling bad for my character is something I’m very grateful for as an actor. I’m grateful and satisfied. If you think about it in a different way, I wonder if Seung Jun could have had a happy ending that was as happy as Se Ri and Jung Hyuk’s, and I think in that aspect, maybe it was the best decision for him to die when he did.” Other than his death scene, Kim Jung Hyun has had many memorable scenes in the drama, some of which including when he ripped a plane ticket with his mouth and when he used a rifle. Kim Jung Hyun said, “In the script, it said to just rip the ticket but I came up with the idea to rip it with my mouth. I think it came out well because the camera director is so talented. My mother really likes that scene.” He also shared that his friends often talk about the ticket and gun shooting scenes and added, “I feel like the scenes came out much better than I could have hoped for with more emotions. I spent a lot of time filming the gun shooting scenes, and I think it was worth it.” Finally, Kim Jung Hyun stated that he had become energized through “Crash Landing on You.” He said, “Being able to be a part of such a great project makes me feel like I have a medal I can wear with pride every day. Many people watched over me through this drama and I was able to share a warm but intense story. I think, no matter what project I return with next, I will do my best to choose one that delivers a message to viewers.” He promised to shorten his time between projects, and after a quick break, he will be looking into offers for his next work. “Crash Landing on You” ended on February 16, setting a new record for the highest viewership ratings in tvN history, scoring an average nationwide rating of 21.683 percent and a peaking in real-time ratings at 24.1 percent.

On February 21, through the official SNS of the management company, Hyun Bin expressed, "You might be spending day after day anxious and worrying over the Coronavirus disease 2019 which is occurring all over the world and throughout Asia including China and Japan as well as Korea. I’d like to ask after your health at least by writing to express my worry over whether the place you are at is safe."

I also appreciate those working tirelessly day and night to eradicate the virus, and I will cheer them on until the end. Furthermore, I sincerely wish the quick recovery of those suffering from its infection." Hyun Bin also wrote posts in English, Japanese, and Chinese to show his sincerity to international fans. He satisfied fans with the message, "Again, I hope all those reading this are able to maintain their safety and health from the virus and I will pray this incident safely passes by. February 21, 2020. Hyunbin." Hyun Bin has completely conquered the small screen audience with the role of Ri Jeong Hyeok in the drama "Crash Landing On You" (tvN). His next work is a movie named "Bargaining". This movie is about the kidnapping of Koreans taking place in the Middle East with the content about saving the victims. On the other hand, Korea is also in a difficult situation because of the Covid-19 pneumonia epidemic originating in Wuhan, China. Because of patient number 31 (a follower of the Shincheonji), the number of infected people in Korea has exceeded 200 and 2 people died in this country. As a result, people nationwide are in greater fear than ever.

  10. Crash Landing On You: Designer Bags Seen On Son Ye-Jin You’d Want To Buy Now Rich heiress and fashion businesswoman – surely, Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin’s character) was carrying the most fashionable designer bags BY DONSON / FEBRUARY 19, 2020 Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have heard people buzzing about the South Korean drama Crash Landing On You. Starring Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin, the series has garnered attention and popularity for its unique plot. Something else has caught our eyes, though. The stylish bags spotted on Ye-jin, who plays a rich heiress and businesswoman Yoon Se-ri. Scroll down to check out all the designer totes she sported. https://www.herworld.com/gallery/fashion/style-file/crash-landing-on-you-son-ye-jin-designer-bags/ ——- [old contents getting republished] https://www.asiaone.com/lifestyle/crash-landing-you-actress-son-ye-jins-secrets-radiant-glow Crash Landing On You actress Son Ye Jin's secrets to a radiant glow FEBRUARY 21, 2020 By HIDAYAH IDRIS | CLEO SINGAPORE Instagram/yejinhand Whether you've seen Korean actress Son Ye Jin in person or only on TV, the first thing that strikes you is how clear her skin is. In her latest romantic comedy Crash Landing on You which wrapped up over the weekend (Feb 16), Son Ye Jin, who plays a beautiful heiress and leading fashion businesswoman in South Korea, had flawless skin throughout the show whether she was dressed in a hot power suit or when she looked pale in a hospital gown. Her complexion is not just blemish-free, but also radiant. Even during our interview with her back in 2017, the amiable A-list actress, who just won Best Actress award in the film category at Baeksang Arts Awards, showed off her bright, supple skin. She candidly told us that even her staff members were shocked at how radiant her skin was today. Her secret? Skin Inc's Multi-Masking Facial In A Flash mask and My Daily Dose serum, which was custom-blended for her skin type. "I was very surprised myself by the effectiveness. Next time, whenever I have an important occasion, I'll just go for this simple regime." Hearing her talk about the products with such conviction makes you realise that she was indeed the perfect candidate to be Skin Inc's brand evangelist. "I feel that as someone who uses the products, I belong to the consumer side, so I can be the bridge between the customers and Skin Inc. I believe, as a woman and actress, I know the skin concerns the different age groups have, so I can share my know-how and ideas." And it seems the brand found its way to her heart even before she officially became a part of their family. She said: "Previously, I came to Singapore with other actresses for a holiday. We walked past Sephora and one of us received a sample - it was a Skin Inc sample. She really liked it and bought [Skin Inc] products the next day. "At that point of time, I was in discussion on whether I should join Skin Inc, so it was a very interesting experience for me. "For a woman to use the product, and the moment she used it, she thinks it's a good product and wants to buy it, it makes me want to work with them." In case you were wondering, her actress friend bought the Pure Revival Peel and one of the Optimizer devices (below): ON THE IMPORTANCE OF CLEANSING: "Recently, I've been using a lot of masks. In the past, I would use it around once a week, but nowadays, I use it almost everyday. "Previously, I heard that it's not good to wash your face (with cleanser) in the morning, so I would just rinse my skin with water. "But I realised that my skin is oily, so I need to cleanse every morning. Even when my schedule ends late at night, I would still cleanse my face. I put in extra care into cleansing." ON THE BEST BEAUTY TIPS SHE'S PICKED UP OVER THE YEARS: "You have to drink a lot of water. It's not easy but a person has to drink two to three litres of water daily. You also have to sleep well, but that's not easy either if you're stressed. "In Korea, the prevalence of microdust is very serious, so almost everyone has dry and sensitive skin. I really want to recommend the Multi-Masking Facial in a Flash mask series and the Optimizer as part of their daily routine." ON WHY SHE DOESN'T HAVE A COMPLEX SKINCARE ROUTINE: "It's impossible to do 10 steps (laughs). I think it depends on the person's skin type. If you have very dry skin, even if you give a lot of nourishment, it might still be dry. So perhaps for those people, they need to do all 10 steps. "But in my case, having too many steps is too much. I prefer something simple, around one to two steps." ON THE PRODUCTS SHE BRINGS ALONG FOR TRAVEL: "I bring a lot of things when I travel, especially when my skin becomes dry. I have oily skin, so putting on too many ingredients is not good for my skin, hence I usually go for hydrating ones. "I also bring Skin Inc's Pure Serum Mist which I apply before and after makeup. It's very refreshing because it contains Onsen water from Japan. "Facial masks are one of the must-brings for me when I go overseas. I also bring natural aloe vera - I would grind it myself to apply on my skin for sunburn. Skin Inc has a product for sunburn so I will bring that for my next overseas trip (laughs)." ON WHAT SHE DOES FOR GREAT SKIN: "Nowadays, it's easy to get information online. There are a lot of products in the market, so I think it's important to try the products to know what suits me best. "I believe there's no one product that fits everyone or serves their skin concerns and purposes, so I try to allocate which products to use for when my skin is sensitive or dry. "I usually have a tight schedule and have a lack of sleep when I'm filming, so I try to drink a lot of water and eat a lot of fruits." This article was first published in CLEO Singapore.
  11. JTBC PLUS | 2020. 02. 20. 6:20 PM After "Crash Landing on You", Hyun Bin hits big screen with "Bargaining" Actor Hyun Bin has signaled to work hard in the first half of 2020 with his next work as the movie "Bargaining" (rough translation). Through the drama "Crash Landing on You", Hyun Bin reached the third heyday and conquered the female audience's heart both in and outside Korea with the reputable title "Melo King". Expectedly, the actor will continue to cause a sensation on the big screen. The movie "Bargaining" starring Hyun Bin talks about the rescue of kidnapped victims based on the Korean people kidnap in the Middle East and is directed by Yim Soon Rye, who created movies "Forever the Moment", "Little Forest". Before kicking off the filming, the movie attracted a lot of expectations thanks to the strange setting in the Middle East, along with the new combination between Hwang Jung Min and Hyun Bin. Currently, "Bargaining" is about to embark on the stage of filming abroad. In this work, Hyun Bin will show his clear and masculine acting, different from his previous films. It is known that, right after the end of the drama filming, Hyun Bin wholeheartedly prepared for the next work without resting. He has constantly spent time discussing the script with director Yim Soon Rye as well as focusing on preparing for the personality of the character he will take on in the movie. Hyun Bin always shines in every movie and drama for the past years as a typical actor capable of "taking care" of many different genres, from romance to action. Therefore, the public is curious to know how the actor will once again conquer the audience with this challenge.

A lawyer from law firm Gangnam, on behalf of the agency, released an official statement saying libel and blackmail complaints have been filed against a man claiming to have suffered school bullying by Lee. Earlier this month, a man claiming to have been Lee’s middle school classmate posted on several online communities that he had been bullied by the rookie actor. The man later posted a letter of apology on the internet, saying his claims were not true. According to the lawyer’s statement, the man had promised to make no further claims to hurt Lee. But several days later, on Feb. 6, the man sent malicious text messages to the actor’s father, stating that he had “not been paid for writing the apology” and threatened to “reveal everything on the online communities.” The man also added he would not hold any negotiations with Lee and warned he would take things to the police. The allegations not only seriously damaged Lee’s reputation, but led to Lee losing a modeling contract, the lawyer said in the statement, adding that the situation had caused irrevocable mental and financial damages to Lee. The agency said it would show no clemency toward anyone who tried to further harm Lee with false rumors. Lee, 22, played the North Korean soldier Park Kwang-beom in the 16-part series “Crash Landing on You,” which ended last week. By Choi Ji-won (jwc@heraldcorp.com

According to Nielsen Korea, the show has become the second-highest-rated drama in South Korean cable television history, with a peak rating of 21.7 per cent. It is just behind Sky Castle, a drama about South Korean "tiger mums" which achieved a peak rating of 23.8 per cent in February 2019. In Crash, a South Korean heiress played by Son is blown into North Korean territory while paragliding and meets a dashing North Korean army captain played by Hyun. For Mr Raymond Babol, a Filipino expatriate based in Singapore, the appeal of Crash similarly transcends borders. The 36-year-old senior designer says: "My siblings in the Philippines and my aunt in the United States were talking about it in our group chat, so I decided to start watching it." Since then, Mr Babol says that he has gotten hooked on the storyline. He even cried at the finale, which he found brilliant. He adds: "I am going to recommend this to every person I know." Similarly, piano teacher, Madam Tan Sok Hoon, 51, and her husband watch the show religiously and are particularly fond of the leading lady's wit. Administrative executive Crystal Ling, 28, who follows the show, is also a fan of lead actress Son. "I've watched almost all of her shows," she says. As for 19-year-old Tan Qiao Lin, a relief history teacher, she enjoyed the way the show humanised the North Korean citizens: "It was entertaining to see them going to computer cafes and getting into online games." She also liked the depiction of the relationships between North and South: "The show made me aware of the sadness and longing that Koreans who have family or friends on the other side of the DMZ (demilitarised zone) must be feeling." "It was bittersweet when the characters' return to their respective sides because they can never see each other again."

Here are eight things to know about the show: 1. SO CLOSE YET SO FAR No, none of the scenes were shot in North Korea. Instead, filming took place not just within South Korean locations such as Jeju, but also in countries like Mongolia and Switzerland. 2. STAR WRITER Park Ji-eun, the screenwriter of Crash Landing On You, has many other hit K-dramas under her belt, including My Love From The Star (2013-2014), The Producers (2015) and Legend Of The Blue Sea (2016). 3. INSPIRED BY REAL INCIDENT Screenwriter Park drew inspiration from actress Jung Yang's 2008 accident. The actress was sailing in Incheon when her boat was swept away due to the weather conditions, causing her to almost cross the 38th parallel - the border between North and South Korea. 4. DEFECTOR CONSULTANT The production team had consulted North Korean defector-turned-YouTuber and reality TV celebrity Kang Nara on details about life in the country. Kang, 22, had defected in 2014 - her mother had paid a broker to smuggle her into China. She took a roundabout route through China, Myanmar and Thailand before arriving in South Korea to reunite with her mother, who had defected two years earlier in 2012. 5. DID THE SHOW GET NORTH KOREA RIGHT? According to Kang, about 60 per cent of the portrayal of North Korea is accurate. "The richer families in North Korea like to show off their wealth by adding lace curtains to their windows. So that was pretty well portrayed," she commented. She also appreciated the detail about kimchi caves. "Since rural North Korea doesn't get electricity, they don't have refrigerators. They have kimchi caves where they store kimchi, and that was also recreated well," she added. 6. THE LEADS REUNITE IN THE SHOW This is not the first show where lead actors Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin have starred together - they had first done so in 2018 South Korean action crime thriller film, The Negotiation. Son played Chae Yoon, a member of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency's crisis negotiation team, while Hyun played Tae Gu, an arms dealer who had kidnapped two Koreans in Bangkok. 7. GOLD OLIVE CHICKEN GETS A BOOST The popularity of the show has given a boost to businesses such as South Korean chicken franchise Genesis BBQ and jeweller Swarovski. In the show, the lead characters eat Genesis BBQ's speciality Gold Olive Chicken, while Son Ye-jin's heiress character wears a pair of Swarovski earrings.
