  1. The genuine love for each other portrayed on the screen by Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin will leave an endless longing to the viewers, especially the hopeless romantics, for the most powerful and loveliest couple to be together forever in real life. I have watched Korean dramas for years but Crash Landing On You is the only one that I find most captivating and immensely captured my heart. Perfect casting and acting their roles realistically lead the Crash Landing On You’s huge success……excellent directing too! It makes me sad that it ended so soon. Hope to see Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin work together again….better yet, to make their undeniable chemistry on the screen become a reality (I can only wish!!!).
