Hyun Bin And Son Ye Jin Talk About Reuniting In Rom-Com Drama After Starring In Film Together
On December 9, the actors attended a press conference for “Crash Landing on You.” The upcoming tvN drama tells the story of wealthy South Korean heiress Yoon Se Ri (played by Son Ye Jin), who lands in North Korea after a paragliding accident, and North Korean officer Ri Jung Hyuk (played by Hyun Bin), who falls in love with her while hiding and protecting her.
Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin previously starred together in the 2017 film “The Negotiator.” The two actors shared great chemistry in the film and were also spotted together more than once earlier this year, leading to dating rumors that both stars have repeatedly denied.
During the press conference, Son Ye Jin remarked, “It’s rare for actors to meet again in another project, so I think this is fate. Hyun Bin is flawlessly suited to his character in the drama. Our chemistry, too.”
She went on, “I think we’ll able to show lots of different sides to ourselves in this drama, from a lovey-dovey dynamic to deep emotions.”
Hyun Bin praised his co-star by adding, “It’s a fun drama with an unpredictable plot. It really captured a lot of Son Ye Jin’s cheerful charms.”
Following his film “Confidential Assignment,” “Crash Landing on You” will mark Hyun Bin’s second time playing a North Korean soldier. Describing his character, the actor said, “Ri Jung Hyuk is charming because he’s someone who’s tough but also clumsy.”
Son Ye Jin, who received a lot of attention for her performance in JTBC’s “Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food,” said, “I’m really random in real life, just like [my character] Se Ri.” Comparing Yoon Se Ri to her character from “Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food,” she remarked, “She’s a dramatic character who’s very different from my previous drama, which was about a realistic woman.”
The actors also agreed that the script, which was written by “My Love from the Star” writer Park Ji Eun, was especially fun. Producing director (PD) Lee Jung Hyo commented, “There may be some aversion to the subject matter because it takes place in North Korea, but [in our drama,] it’s a fantasy-like space that exists for the sake of romance. The drama will combine romance and North Korean life together in a refreshing way.”
“Crash Landing on You” premieres on December 14 at 9 p.m. KST. Check out the latest preview here!
