Watch: Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin, And More Introduce Their Characters At First Script Reading For “Crash Landing On You”
tvN’s upcoming drama “Crash Landing on You” has revealed a behind-the-scenes video from the first script reading!
The drama is about a wealthy South Korean heiress named Yoon Se Ri (played by Son Ye Jin) who, while paragliding, is forced to make a crash landing in North Korea due to high winds. North Korean officer Ri Jung Hyuk (Hyun Bin) hides and protects her, and in doing so, starts to fall in love.
The behind-the-scenes video teased the comedic draw of the drama, as the cast members commented on how they spent the table reading constantly laughing. Son Ye Jin said, “It was a lot of fun and kind of hard because I was laughing so much.”
Introducing his character, Hyun Bin said in his interview, “[Ri Jung Hyuk] is an elite North Korean captain, and he’s by-the-book, but he takes good care of his own and has a warm heart. He’s got an innocent side to him as well.”
Son Ye Jin, who’s playing a South Korean heiress named Yoon Se Ri, said, “Despite growing up in an affluent family, [Yoon Se Ri] doesn’t rely on that and builds her own successful fashion company. She’s very skilled and charismatic, and at times she’s very lovable. She has an almost child-like simplicity to her that will make you laugh.”
Seo Ji Hye then introduced her character, Seo Dan, a North Korean in the top 1 percent who is also Ri Jung Hyuk’s fiancée. She said, “I was curious what a North Korean female [character] would be like, and I think you’ll be able to see in this drama.
Kim Jung Hyun also talked a little bit about his character Ku Seung Jun. “He’s smart and quick on his feet. He’s a young businessman and conman.”
tvN’s “Crash Landing on You” premieres December 14 at 9 p.m. KST.
