People aren’t quite over “Crash Landing On You” (사랑의 불시착) yet, despite the heartwarming finale over the weekend.
It’s no surprise, seeing as how the K-drama became tvN’s highest rated show in history! Naturally, the main cast will reflect on which scenes stood out throughout the season. Any guesses?
For Hyun Bin (현빈), it was the last scene in episode 9 where Captain Ri Jung Hyuk and Yoon Se Ri had to part ways even though they had fallen head over heels for one another. “(The scene) shows the feelings of Ri Jung Hyuk, who courageously crossed the military demarcation line to follow Yoon Se Ri, and it was a moment in which the two people overcame their reality,” he said.
The 37-year-old actor added, “I worked on the project hoping that ‘Crash Landing on You’ could be a gift to viewers in the way Ri Jung Hyuk and Yoon Se Ri’s unexpected encounter brought them special joy. Thank you for sending us lots of support and love and allowing Ri Jung Hyuk to happily ‘land’ by your sides.”
When it came to the leading lady, Son Ye Jin (손예진) remembers the conversation over drinks in episode 12. When Ri Jung Hyuk got tipsy after drinking, he confessed his love to Yoon Se Ri and they even toyed with the possibility of having a family together. Who can possibly forget that romantic scene right?
“I laughed a lot and cried a lot while acting as Yoon Se Ri. More than anything, I was very happy. I’m thankful to have been part of a project that will take up a very big part of my acting career, and I sincerely thank everyone who sent us love all this time,” the 38-year-old actress recalled.
Also, we would be remiss if we need mention Se Ri’s fashion throughout the series. Whether as the boss lady or in a casual ensemble, girlfriend here was always looking chic from head to toe.
One particular line stuck with Kim Jung Hyun (김정현). It was when Ri Jung Hyuk uttered the words “I looked everywhere for so long” to Yoon Se Ri in episode 11 when he had just arrived in Seoul. Kim Jung Hyun explained, “I think it was the most fantastical line in our drama. It remained in my memory because it brought out lots of emotions.”
The whole experience has left a huge impact on the 30-year-old star, who expressed, “I have met new people and formed new relationships in every project, but this project is even more meaningful. Through the love (I received), I reflected on myself and found hope. To the viewers who accompanied us on the 16-episode journey, I would like to thank you for sharing your time with us.”
Last but not last is Seo Ji Hye (서지혜). The mother-daughter relationship between Seo Dan and Go Myung Eun (played by “Parasite” actress Jang Hye Jin) was unique to her. In episode 8, viewers got to see the dynamic duo’s heart-to-heart talk when Go Myung Eun admitted that she was worried for Seo Dan’s well-being.
The 35-year-old South Korean star added, “I had to go to a lot of places while acting as Seo Dan. Even though we had to film while battling against the cold, I felt healed when I saw the starry night sky, and those moments have all become memories. I was happy thanks to the interest and love shown by our viewers.”
Many fans were heartbroken over the tragedy over Seo Dan’s love life. But we also saw her emerging stronger than ever. Her character is an example that independent women can kick ass too!
There’s no doubt that “Crash Landing On You” will be lingering on for awhile before we can move on.
