Hyun Bin x Son Ye Jin rise to lead Hallyu thanks to "Crash Landing on You"

Actors Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin of "Crash Landing on You" drama are at the center of the strong Korean wave. In the international fan community, the two are nicknamed "RiRi Couple" (named after 2 characters in the drama, Ri Jung Hyuk and Yoon Se Ri). "Crash Landing on You" becomes the best Hallyu content following "Descendants of the Sun" - the best Hallyu drama before the ban on Hallyu.

Woohoo, my heart flutters! This is real GRAND PRIZE!

Like so much of you I was disappointed with the lukewarm showing of CLOY at the awards show, but I truly believe that more than any award recognition, the most important contribution of CLOY is its cultural impact not just through Asia but to the West as well. Has there been any previous Kdrama that got ranked Top 10 in Netflix US? Got a write-up by NBC News (one of the four major broadcasting media in the US)? CLOY was the gateway to Kdramas to a big Western audience (it's my first Kdrama, I live in the US), and boy, what a ride it was. 

 

It got me thinking then, because of its huge popularity and impact, that it's possible be remade in other countries. But I think it's storyline is just too  unique with the SK-NK angle going on. Are there any other countries in this world that has the same dynamic of SK-NK in which a remake can be based on? The only close comparison I can think of is maybe Taiwan-China. I don't know of anything else.

 

That's why I think while it's fun to think CLOY may get remade, I'm not sure how a remake can ever match its unique charm and story.

Very happy to share new reports in Korean media on CLOY and Binjin's popularity in Japan. So glad Korea is paying attention to CLOY's impact in different continents!

 

Credit to @mamipoppins who posted this article at Binjin thread :

This article explains the popularity of CLOY in Japan (in Korean) The show has transcended the usual audience of K-dramas because of its widespread appeal across different age groups and all genders.

 

"In the past, the main consumer of Korean Wave dramas in Japan were housewives fans in their 40s and 50s, while the'non-trial of love' is widely loved not only by young people in their 20s and 30s, but also by teenagers and men in their 50s."

I also found this video on tweeter :

- The beginning of the video shows Bae Yong Jun of Winter Sonata and his arrival in Japan airport which created a frenzy! He became a mega super star in Japan during that period and was popular for almost 5-10years (not sure of exact timing that I read in article). The Japan media is actually comparing CLOY and Binjin with Winter Sonata and its lead stars!!! That is ONE BIG COMPLIMENT cuz Winter Sonata was not just a Hallyu Wave to Japan, it was literally a Hallyu Typhoon that swept into the country!!

One big BA-BAM for CLOY. The whole up take of the plot and story development were the ones that caught my attention, aside from the cast. There was a blogger, I think she’s famous in giving in depth analysis per episode, I was swept by it. So, I couldn’t take my heart out of this wonderful drama. I really don’t know how’s upcoming awards work, just hoping for a well deserved recognition. 

 

I’m waiting for more articles and features about CLOY, got too attached.

Here comes the Eng subs for the TV news of CLOY's popularity in Japan!!  There are some missing parts (mostly where they interviewed the Japanese celebrities) but the key segments are all translated. Proud of CLOY!!

 

 

 

 

 

Might be easier to watch the complete video via the Insta link :

One Blogger rated B++.  I'm so annoyed. CLOY deserve more than a B++. It was my first kdrama...so this series definitely set the bar high. I watched other recommended high rating series after and I can't say they are better than CLOY.

@NYXbaby would you mind sharing the blogger’s review? We all know it’s always subjective, biases are all over. But one thing is for sure, for the majority and a non Kdrama fan for a long time like me,  and the rest of the world, it’s a masterpiece. Like many of us mentioned here, they set the bar too high that we always go back to watching CLOY instead. It’s actually funny  for Kdrama first timers because it’ll be difficult to choose and watch another one without comparing, it happened to me. :sweatingbullets: I just either watch SYJ movies or HYUN BIN’s :blush:

Reviews are always subjective..

But I found this site where the person is from the States and has watched hundreds  of kdramas including those which were aired almost two decades ago.. Guess what..she gave CLOY an A+.. Although the review is not that elaborate cause you know everything is already said so many times. Still I liked many of the points she mentioned as a veteran kdrama watcher http://www.kdramalove.com/CrashLanding.html

However I don't agree with all of her other A+ dramas...but for CLOY I  agree totally..

Even I have watched around 60-65 kdramas but CLOY has set the bar so high that I have not been able to finish a single series since CLOY ended.

Don't feel bad due to someone's difference in taste.. People have certain preferences but what matters the most is that the majority of  opinions are in CLOY'S favour . One more point..with the increase in hype, people's behaviour tends to become elitist and they will try to scrutinize it brutally. However CLOY overcame all of it and its journey is still going smooth. Cheer up!!:)

I think I know which blogger you are referring. She is actually one of my favourite reviewer for dramas and I usually am very in line with her reviews. For CLOY, if you read in detail what she wrote, she actually love the drama but found there was slow-pace in the middle of the drama. Some also felt it, but that's OK. Preferences are subjective. To me CLOY is A+. :D  And it is A+ in many many viewers hearts. Most importantly it has moved the hearts of so many people from all over the world, and the impact is not just on the drama itself but also the whole of Kdrama cuz many started getting into Kdramas cuz of CLOY. How much bigger impact can it get? CLOY has given another BIG LIFT to the Hallyu Wave! Legendary indeed!

 

@eLizza  Thanks for the link of the CLOY review! Wow, the blogger has really watched a LOT a LOT of Kdramas!! Her list of reviews is amazing! Will go read that up. If we go to MyDramaList, most of the reviews (around 166 in last count which is one of the highest for Kdramas) are really positive and with solid reasons why. And the ratings are also still very high even with more than 10K people rating it. High viewership and high ratings! Just shows how great CLOY is and how loved it is!

Hello again! I actually thot CLOY ending was PERFECT!! I felt super satisfied when I finished the finale, esp that lovely epilogue showing their life in Switzerland after the reunion. Though I wish there was more and more and more, but I felt the writer did it just right! If it was too prolonged, it will become cheesy and loses some of the magic. Some audience may even question different details and rationale of an overly long post-life story (unless it's like a special episode). The way the drama ended, with the swelling theme music playing as the camera pans out to the scenery of Switzerland hillside (forgot the name of the place) just as the couple kissed, was just perfect for me. After that, the audience all swoon and start imagining the life the couple is leading. I also love all the little details of the NK comrades and ahjummas, and how they hinted that F4 knows what's happening with RiRi (ie their reunion and annual meet-up in Switzerland) and I also imagine that they update the ahjummas about the couple too. Lovely little touches!

 

 


Hmm, I am trying to recall all the dramas I have watched or am now watching post CLOY. Firstly I rewatched CLOY 2X lol!! In the midst of that, I also watched The King Eternal Monarch (so-so and confusing), Hospital Playlist (love this!), WOTM (stressful but good), Hyena (lots of fun), IC (not bad esp the beginning) and Still 17 (heart-warming). Currently watching When My Love Blooms (quite good, a bit slow but v romantic) and kinda following Mystic Pop-up Store (but it's not grabbing my attention). I did try Dinner Mate for 2 episodes and I thot Seo Ji-Hye's role looks really interesting and so spunky, and SSH looks quite good too. But I haven't had the urge to continue....is it good? I may pick it up again later. 

Yeah I do gobble up Kdramas pretty fast. And I might be getting a bit bored with what's available....Soon my urge to rewatch CLOY will come again. I just rewatched Inception cuz it's gonna be taken out of Netflix by end June, and it was just before I watched The King finale. Quite a contrast...

 

ADDED: Oh yeah, forgot that I also just complete The Last Empress starring jang Nara. It was a lot of fun and really enjoyed it, despite it being very makjang. :D  Just have to suspense logic and go for the ride. Well made drama and acting were all on point.

@MsHoon2219  

I am really so surprised that CLOY was mentioned in that Australian TV show. So unexpected LOL!!

 

And that long academic article was full of great info and how CLOY made an impact in different parts of the world. It was really left a cultural impact and seem to have re-ignited the Hallyu Wave for K-dramas. Hope this will continue on! 

 

@ElectricHearts Thanks for the tweets! Great to see other American actors/ artistes loving CLOY.

 

 

CLOY is really breaking the language/ cultural barrier for Kdramas in US and many other countries. Of course other korean imports like Parasite and K-pop also laid a good foundation. But CLOY is probably the first Kdrama to gain so much attention in US. Hope the cast and crew know about this and are very happy and proud!
