News Navigator: Why is S. Korean drama 'Crash Landing on You' so popular in Japan?

September 21, 2020 (Mainichi Japan)

 

 

The Mainichi Shimbun answers some common questions readers may have about "Crash Landing on You," a smash hit South Korean drama that has also caused an enormous craze in Japan.

Question: I've heard that the drama "Crash Landing on You," which is set in North Korea, has been wildly popular. What's the storyline?

Answer: It's a serial drama aired by South Korean cable network tvN, in which Yoon Se-ri (played by Son Ye-jin), the daughter of a South Korean conglomerate family, crash lands in North Korea in a paragliding accident and falls in love with a North Korean elite military officer Ri Jeong Hyeok (Hyun Bin) who she happened to encounter.

 

In Japan, the 16-episode romantic comedy series has been distributed exclusively by Netflix since February. A flurry of comments posted by viewers saying they "repeatedly watched the drama" poured onto social media, causing a sensation in Japan. Its popularity continues even now, with the show topping Netflix's daily viewership ranking on some days in September.

 

Q: What's so cool about the drama?

A: One of the highlights is that the series portrays the lifestyles of North Korean people -- from their diet to shopping at markets -- based on real-life information including interviews with North Koreans who defected to South Korea. Although there were dramas and movies in the past in which North Korean characters appear, Bunkyo University professor Yeong-ae Yamashita, who is versed in South Korean culture and women's studies, notes that "Crash Landing on You" is likely the first South Korean drama that describes the realities of North Korea in such detail.

 

Q: So why is this show so hot in Japan?

A: It has heretofore been thought that most of the Japanese fans of South Korean dramas were women who prefer love stories. While "Crash Landing on You" also evolves around a love story, the series also offers depictions surrounding the internal affairs of North Korea and powerful action scenes, capturing the hearts of many male viewers as well.

 

According to professor Yamashita, Park Ji-eun, who wrote the script for the show, is one of the most popular screenwriters in South Korea and her works have attracted viewers with clever storylines. Why not try and watch South Korean dramas that encompass a variety of elements?

I want to watch more kdramas but I keep rewatching CLOY lol.  It's like comfort food TV in these times and it's very rewatchable. 

 

I think the NK portion of the show may be my favourite so I can understand why Jap viewers and others may have responded to it strongly.  And CLOY is a mix of genres so it's got something for everyone.

 

Thanks for posting all those bts pics.  Whenever I see bts, I always think gosh there are sooooooooo many people on set working on a show.  Don't expect privacy on a set!  The people holding up the reflecting lighting boards and umbrellas have a hard job. 

 

What was SYJ looking at at her palm in that bts pic where she's holding the mini fan? Script notes? Or just spacing out lol. 

 

Swiss scenes were beautiful undoubtedly with beautiful scenery, beautiful people, beautiful weather. But emotionally as a viewer I felt they were a bit disjointed from the story.

 

I know they shoot out of order all the time but still to shoot the very ending of the show at the beginning of a shoot can't be the easiest. I did think they captured the couple tone and emotional reunion quite well considering they were amongst the first scenes they shot as a couple in character.

Watch: Kim Jung Hyun Gets Dressed Up In Character To Reunite With “Crash Landing On You” Co-Star Seo Ji Hye

Oct 14, 2020
by J. K
 

Kim Jung Hyun reunited with his “Crash Landing on You” co-star Seo Ji Hye!

 

The actor’s agency recently shared a vlog on YouTube in which he visited the exhibit “teamLab: LIFE” after being invited by Seo Ji Hye. Kim Jung Hyun got dressed up like his “Crash Landing on You” character Gu Seung Jun for his reunion with Seo Ji Hye, who played Seo Dan in the show. He even bumped into the drama’s director Lee Jung Hyo on the way in.

 

Inside, he reunited with Seo Ji Hye and their fellow co-star Yoon Ji Min. When Kim Jung Hyun and Yoon Ji Min hugged, Seo Ji Hye joked, “Don’t you hate each other in the drama?” so Yoon Ji Min jokingly apologized.

 

Kim Jung Hyun bowed to Seo Ji Hye and thanked her for inviting him. He then turned to the camera and explained, “This outfit I’m wearing today is the one that I wore when I winked in the drama.” He made Seo Ji Hye laugh when he said that he’d brought another outfit to change into. He also shared that he’d almost brought a cello case, but he thought it might distract from the exhibit.

 

The actor then appeared to be posing for someone taking his photo off camera, and Seo Ji Hye said, “There are so many fans who’ve waited for Gu Seung Jun.” Kim Jung Hyun joked, “Gu Seung Jun is still living.”

The pair joked about how she was going to be showing him the exhibit, and Kim Jung Hyun said, “I heard you’ve got a big business going in South Korea.” Seo Ji Hye laughed and said, “Dan’s family failed in North Korea so they moved to the South.”

 

During their trip around the exhibit, Seo Ji Hye also teased Kim Jung Hyun over the cheating character he played in her drama “Dinner Mate” when he made a cameo. She said to the camera, “Please give lots of love and support to Kim Jung Hyun!” and he said the same about her and thanked her for inviting him.

 

Watch them explore the exhibit together in the video below, with English subtitles!

Previously there were naysayers here at the CLOY thread that kept denying the worldwide impact of CLOY, but again and again, news keep coming out to show how IMPACTFUL CLOY has been and still is (this is 3rd quarter Netflix earnings, and CLOY finished airing in Q1). Take a BOW CLOY and esp writer Park Ji-Eun, Dir Lee, Binjin and all the cast and crew!!

Yet another great news about CLOY's success!!

 

 

 

 

I love this latest Naver news about CLOY's success so much, so decided to translate it again using Papago (which is the most accurate korean-english translator that I've encountered so far). There's some info that was missing or not as clearly translated from the 1st translation which I bolded below :

1) About the hot chemistry of HB and SYJ beyond melodrama

2) That a fan meeting at Tokyo Dome is possible

NOTE: Tokyo Dome is the biggest and most prestigious event hall in Japan, and only the biggest stars have events and fan meetings there. Bae Yong Jun had his fan meeting there

The Yoon Seri coat that Hollywood follows...The "Emergency Arrival of Love" syndrome continues.

The drama "The Improper Landing of Love" syndrome is continuing steadily.

The tvN drama "The Crash of Love" (written by Park Ji-eun and directed by Lee Jung-hyo) has been gaining popularity among fans at home and abroad for 10 months after its end.

"Emergency Arrival of Love" is a drama about the secret romance between Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin), an heir to a conglomerate who made an emergency landing in North Korea due to a paragliding accident, and Ri Jeong-hyuk ( Hyun Bin), a North Korean military officer who hides and protects him. The romance reunion between Son Ye-jin and Hyun-bin, who confronted negotiators and hostage-takers in the "negotiation" but also became the main characters of the romance rumor with a "hot" chemistry beyond melodrama, also drew attention.

It was aired from December last year to February this year and received explosive love from viewers. In particular, the last episode, which depicts the reunion of Yoon Se-ri and Lee Jung-hyuk, recorded 21.683 percent based on the pay-per-view platform of Nielsen Korea, the highest ratings ever on tvN.

In particular, it was released on Netflix and gained explosive popularity overseas. In Japan, the center of the Korean Wave, it is so popular that it is still ranked among the top 10 most viewed content 10 months after its end. In particular, in Japan, each program has even created a special section for "Urgent Landing of Love" until now.

NHK's morning information program "Asaiqi" also released a story on Oct. 5 about Japanese fans' earnest wish to be "Hyun Bin's housekeeper." "There are many women who are in love with Hyun Bin, a hot man who tries to protect his beloved woman.There are a lot of women who have become fans of Hyun Bin through this drama.

In particular, Hyun Bin is said to have once again ignited the Korean Wave in Japan after "Winter Sonata." "If it weren't for Corona 19, Japan would have been turned upside down because of Hyun Bin," a Japanese management official told Sportv News. "Some Japanese officials even say that a fan meeting at the Tokyo Dome is possible. "It is true that the Korean Wave has slowed down due to K-pop, but the Korean Wave is gradually becoming stronger due to the'emergency landing of love '

Son Ye-jin, who showed off her colorful fashion as a chaebol heiress, has captivated Hollywood actors. Famous for "Love Actually," "X-Men: First Class" and "Mad Man," Janury Jones boasted that Botte bought a Veneta coat following Son Ye-jin, who plays Yoon Se-ri. Janury Jones recently released a photo of herself and Son Ye-jin wearing the same coat on her Instagram account, saying, "I love Yoon Se-ri and Lee Jung-hyuk." "I've never been in love like this," he said. He also posted a poster photo of "The Crash of Love."

The popularity of "The Crash of Love" is expected to continue in the future. One proof is that Netflix is maintaining its popularity in the overseas content rankings. One broadcasting official told SPOTVnews "It is encouraging that dramas continue to be popular not only in Asia but also in North America and Europe. We look forward to continuing the Korean Wave, a drama led by the two.

If anyone is still out there following this thread, I have a question  concerning the end of CLOY -

 

Over the Christmas holiday I binge watched CLOY again and got into a discussion about how long YSR & RJH waited for each other, before finally re-uniting in Switzerland. ( I'm referring to the piano recital, and picnic ending )

 

The only points I could pull out of the last episode make it that it had to be at least be 4-5+ years

 

- the scene immediately following the para-gliding reunion, is Dan's Mother talking with the fortune teller which states that Dan lost her only love 3 years prior, so I place YSR & RJH's first meeting at roughly the 3 year mark.

 

- A few scenes following the fortune teller scene, YSR is meeting with her employees and tells them she's leaving for a 2 week vacation and doesn't want to be called.  While no dates are mentioned Mr Hong talks as if these trips are now a regular occurrence - so is that one year since the first reunion? two...three...?  

 

 

I know its trivial, but its gnawing at me ... I thought someone here had put a timeline together , but after searching 20-30 pages, my eyes are going fuzzy :blink: ... please help!

I believe that time line is correct. Seri started going to Switzerland a year after Capt Ri went back to NK (after he told her so through his pre-made text msgs.) She failed to see him the 1st and 2nd time. Mr. Hong’s comments insinuate Seri has been going to Switzerland very often. The timeline is not very clear but it is most likely a few years after the 1st reunion since the Queen’s Group music program is an annual thing in Switzerland, assuming they meet every year prior to that holding hands scene. 
 

I’d like to believe the last scene in the house by the lake is another timeline indicating more permanence in their set up. In my imagination, Cap Ri settled in Switzerland on a longer basis, maybe on a music scholarship or whatever lol. The house looks settled with their photographs displayed all over the place.

You have a very good point.  I had completely overlooked the new photos of them together (obviously not all taken at once) + the well settled house  - so it is probably more than than a few years since the initial reunion. 

 

Thanks for the reply :)
