Three words to describe you: Charismatic, crafty, and clumsy.

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
I'm really looking forward to hopefully competing in OTEV. I am a beast at musical chairs, so I hope to get that Veto in the bag!

What is your strategy for winning the game?
Spot the power players early and annihilate or divide them one by one! Play for MYSELF, not the house. I hope my amiable appearance will cause the guests to let their guards down with me. I want every Houseguest to feel like they have me in their pocket. Finally, I make really good decisions as long as there is no romance involved. NO SHOWMANCES!

Making new friends for life and competing in comps. 

What is your strategy for winning the game?
Ultimately be myself because I am a joy!! But I would like to appear fun and clueless as to not raise any flags, align myself with more people, and slip up as a physical threat when I need to schmooze the house.

Hannah Chaddha (21)

Hometown: Chicago
Current City: Chicago
Occupation: Graduate Student

Three words that describe you: Calculated, composed, and versatile.

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
I can't WAIT to play the game and eat, sleep, breathe Big Brother for the summer. I'm excited for the whole Big Brother experience, even being on slop, taking cold showers, and sleeping in the Have-Not room. It has been my dream to backstab and blindside the other Houseguests all the way to the end. 

What is your strategy for winning the game?
My strategy for winning the game starts with cultivating personal relationships with everyone in the house. I don't have to be everyone's best friend nor do I want to be, but I fully intend on learning about everyone's strengths and weaknesses. I won't have a problem exploiting their weaknesses for my benefit and aligning myself with those whose strengths can compensate for my own shortcomings.

I don't want to play the game on a week-to-week basis, but instead, I want to ensure that with every move I make/competition I win, I use that as an opportunity to set myself up for two/three weeks of safety down the line. I am not afraid to play hard, get messy, and bathe in people's blood, but doing it in such a tactful way that the other Houseguests don't realize what's happening. I plan on lying about my occupation and career aspirations because I don't want the other Houseguests to overestimate my intelligence right off the bat.

Three words that describe you: Adventurous, passionate, and confident.

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
Meeting all my new castmates! I'm a social butterfly. I truly live for these moments. Also, being the single young man that I am, I'd be lying if I said the women didn't add to my excitement. 

What is your strategy for winning the game? 
Although I feel my athletic ability/background will bring me far in the game, my primary strategy for winning Big Brother is heavily dependent on my social abilities. I've been told countless times by many, both peers and strangers, that my charm is POWERFUL. I plan on using this skill in every social interaction in the house, male or female.

Occupation: Kindergarten Teacher

Three words that describe you: Driven, compassionate, and loving.

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
THE COMPETITIONS! I am SO excited to compete and really PLAY THIS GAME! I am a competitor at heart. I grew up as an athlete, I am still an athlete, and I thrive in competitive environments. I'm ready to put my best foot forward in the house and give every competition percent! You're not going to see me throwing many competitions, I really have no idea how I could "throw" a comp. Like Frankie Grande said, I just don't think throwing competitions is in me, ya know? I'm going all-in into every competition!

But, if you see me throwing something, know that I'm percent doing it for a strategic reason. I'm not throwing a comp for no good reason. That I will hardcore have to think through, evaluate my options, and see what's my best move. I am also really excited to meet new people! I'm a total extrovert by nature! I love interacting with people, learning about their passions for life, and truly what makes them the person they are today!

Oh my goodness, wait how could I forget this. THE COSTUMES! I want to wear a costume SO BADLY in the Big Brother house! That has always been a dream of mine! I would love if my costume came with safety, but I'll percent wear a costume! 

What is your strategy for winning the game?
My strategy for winning the game is, simply put, to never forget who I am as an individual, be AUTHENTIC in the house, win competitions in order to secure relationships/alliances in the house, and not be afraid to make the BIG MOVES! Big risk means even bigger reward!

Three words that describe you: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, compassionate, and exuberant. 

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
Living out my dream of being here. I learned life is way too short with the passing of my son, so just being able to live out this dream. I'm here to WIN, not to get famous!

What is your strategy for winning the game?
Building relationships with everyone, not just your alliance. Being a farmer, no two days are the same. You never know what to expect. I always have to evolve and change game plans on a daily basis and I have gotten really good at it. Set strategies are overrated and crumble, so my lifestyle fits perfectly with the Big Brother house.

Forming close one-on-one relationships with people behind the scenes, limiting yet utilizing my charismatic personality to connect with people but also not going too over the top with my friendliness and openness so I can cruise a bit under the table in group settings.

Alyssa Lopez (24)

Hometown: Sarasota, Florida
Current City: Sarasota, Florida
Occupation: Swimwear Designer

Three words that describe you: Witty, sarcastic, and outgoing.

What are you most excited about living in the Big Brother house?
I am most excited to just live out my number one bucket list goal. I have religiously watched Big Brother since I was 11 years old and I have applied four times. I have a photo of the Big Brother logo on my vision board. It will also be exciting to meet new people around the U.S. and live somewhere different than Sarasota. I have never lived outside Sarasota in my life. 

What is your strategy for winning the game?
My strategy for winning the game is to win the very first HOH. I think the first HOH is the most important one. I would then be able to align myself with powerful physical and mental players, but I'd also try to make a final two alliance with someone outside of that. That way I can see the game from all angles.

I think my social game is what will help me the most. I am very outgoing, understanding, and comforting. Houseguests will want to talk to me about their thoughts on other Houseguests and I will use that to my advantage by having a lot of people trust me. I won't speak my mind too much on weeks that I am not HOH but put ideas in their head to get rid of certain people I think would hurt my game. Just like Tyler played on Season

My strategy for winning the game is to learn as much as I can about everyone else and keep my mouth shut.

Xavier Prather (27)

Hometown: Kalamazoo, Michigan
Current City: Milwaukee
Occupation: Attorney

Three words that describe you: Personable, confident, and fun-loving.

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
First and foremost, just getting the opportunity to participate in a game and live in a house that very few people can say they've experienced is pretty incredible. I want to see the design of the house up close and see what random guests (especially Zingbot) will show up throughout my time in the house. 

What is your strategy for winning the game? 
From a competition standpoint, only win when I have to. Socially, make genuine connections and friendships with each of the Houseguests. Reiterate that we are playing a game and avoid bringing personal matters into game decisions. Adapt to the twists of the game as they come and enjoy playing Big Brother the way it was meant to be played.

Hometown: Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Current City: New York City
Occupation: AI Engineer

Three words that describe you: Clever, driven, and spunky. 

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
Just being about to live inside of the house that I watch 24/7 during the summer! I eat, sleep, and breathe the Live Feeds and obsess over the moves that players are making. I used to leave college frat parties if I got word that something big was going down on the Feeds, and now get to be what's happening on the Feeds! I'm excited to stir up drama and create chaos on the show that I love.

What is your strategy for winning the game?
I'll win with my intelligence, drive, and adaptability! I'll sniff out the big threats quickly and navigate my way through the game by creating advantageous alliances. I believe I'll thrive in a chaotic environment, something I learned from my childhood and from working in such a rapidly changing field, so I'll try to cause disruptions and create entropy in the game whenever possible. Hopefully, people will underestimate me the first couple of weeks and give me time to build up relationships before I unleash my cut-throat gameplay. 

I'm also going to try to get out the strong alpha dudes early, that way I don't have as many challenge threats or egos that I have to tiptoe around. I'd love to have a strong, small team of women working with me. It's a cliche that "women's alliances don't work in Big Brother," but it's only because of the women that are chosen to be a part of them. I've found women to be my most loyal friends and I have the ability to quickly read people so I'm confident I'll find fellow black widows.

What is your strategy for winning the game? 
I plan to float! I want to make everyone around me feel at ease and convince them I'm a non-threatening, loyal person. Once they realize I'm only playing for myself, hopefully, it'll be too late to stop me.

To finally compete in some of my favorite BB competitions!!!

What is your strategy for winning the game?
Each season and cast is so different that it makes it hard to go in with an exact game plan, you really need to get to know the other Houseguests to know what will work. I do know that I'm going to go into the house as a strong competitor, while hopefully not making too many ripples. I also want to uphold my values and create genuine friendships, but winning this game for myself and for my children is my top priority.

Kyland Young (29)

Kyland Young (29)

Hometown: San Bernardino County, California
Current City: Venice Beach, California
Occupation: Account Executive

Three words that describe you: Optimistic, dynamic, and engaging.

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
I am most excited about playing the game of Big Brother! I don't care about being on TV, and I often forget about the fact there is a cash prize for winning. When I think about Big Brother, I get excited about the competitions and the social strategies that can help you win! I have always been good at building relationships and being persuasive, however, to have those things gamified in a way that I can be ranked by how well I do it, is like an injection into my competitive blood!

I get goosebumps and a huge smile as I write this out and think about the Hunger Games-like dynamic of building trust and alliances with people all the while being aware there is only ONE winner and you will have to turn on each other at some point. As a longtime fan, I've heard all the players talk about how everything is more difficult than they thought, but I love to be challenged, so that prospect only leaves me more intrigued!

What is your strategy for winning the game?
My strategy is to combine the subtle influence of Derrick, with Cody's charm, Dan's strategic thinking, and hold back on showing how good I am at competitions until I have to (hopefully not needed until the end, like Kaycee in Season 20). I know that sounds like a vague idealistic plan, but I genuinely believe that I have each of those attributes/capabilities I am describing.

I have been studying the game and preparing mentally and physically an unreasonable amount. However, I believe I have the restraint and tact to not give away that I'm as good as I think I will be. I'm well aware this all sounds arrogant, but I feel like knowing this, and the self-awareness I employ in my life in general makes me feel this is all possible.

How should I care for my plaster cast?

Plaster casts are made up of a bandage and a hard covering, usually plaster of paris. They allow broken bones in the arm or leg to heal by holding them in place, and usually need to stay on for between 4 and 12 weeks.

Taking good care of your cast will help ensure a better recovery.

Plaster cast care advice

Keep your arm or leg raised on a soft surface, such as a pillow, for as long as possible in the first few days. This will help any swelling to go down.

Do not get your plaster cast wet. This will weaken it, and your bone will no longer be properly supported.

It's possible to buy special covers for plaster casts to keep them dry when washing or bathing. Ask a pharmacist for more information. Do not try to use plastic bags, bin liners, cling film or similar to keep the cast dry, as these are not reliable methods.

If your cast gets wet, contact your hospital or minor injuries unit for advice as soon as possible.

Always remove any covering as soon as you can to avoid causing sweating, which could also damage the cast.

Even if the plaster cast makes your skin feel very itchy, do not poke anything underneath it. This could cause a nasty sore and lead to infection.

Do not walk on a cast unless you have been told it is safe to do so and have been given a plaster shoe.

The itchiness should settle down after a few days.

More plaster cast tips:

  • exercise any joints that are not covered by the cast – such as your elbow, knee, fingers or toes – to help improve your circulation
  • avoid getting small objects, powders and sprays inside your cast, as they could irritate your skin
  • do not try to alter the length or position of your cast
  • do not lift anything heavy or drive until the cast has been removed
  • use crutches or a sling as advised by your health professional
  • use painkillers if you experience any pain
  • you can usually return to school or work with a cast, but you should avoid strenuous activities that may damage the broken bone or cast

Watch a video about how to look after a plaster cast on the Health and Care Video Library.

Plaster cast problems

You should contact your local hospital or minor injuries unit for advice if:

  • your plaster cast still feels too tight after keeping it elevated for 24 hours
  • you experience persistent itching or a burning sensation under the cast
  • your fingers or toes on the affected limb feel swollen, tingly, painful (even after taking painkillers) or numb
  • your fingers or toes turn blue or white
  • your cast feels too loose
  • your cast is broken or cracked
  • the skin underneath or around the edge of your cast feels sore
  • there is an unpleasant smell or discharge coming from your cast

Crash Landing on You[4] (Korean:&#;사랑의 불시착; Hanja:&#;사랑의 不時着; RR:&#;Sarang-ui Bulsichak; MR:&#;Sarang-ŭi Pulshich'ak; lit.&#;Love's Emergency Landing) is a – South Korean television series written by Park Ji-eun, directed by Lee Jeong-hyo and starring Hyun Bin, Son Ye-jin, Kim Jung-hyun and Seo Ji-hye. It is about a South Korean chaebol heiress who, while paragliding in Seoul, South Korea, is swept up in a sudden storm, crash-lands in the North Korean portion of the DMZ, and meets an army captain in the Korean People's Army who decides he will help her hide. Over time, they fall in love, despite the divide and dispute between their respective countries.

The series aired on tvN in South Korea and on Netflix worldwide from December 14, to February 16, It is the highest-rated tvN drama and the third highest-rated South Korean TV drama in cable television history.

Story[edit]

Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin) is a South Korean chaebol heiress to the Queen's Group. However, her existence threatens her elder half-brothers and she is intensely disliked by her stepmother so she steps away from the family business and successfully founds her own fashion and beauty company, Se-ri's Choice, which makes her independently wealthy.

Se-ri's father, who was recently released from jail and can no longer run the Queen's Group, wants Se-ri to take over. He favors her over her brothers, whose leadership and skills are no match to her talent and business acumen.

As the Queen's Group prepares to make the official announcement, Se-ri goes out paragliding to test her latest line of extreme sportswear and is caught in a sudden tornado, which blows her over the Korean Demilitarized Zone and into North Korea, where she has a fateful encounter with Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok (Hyun Bin).

Desperate to go home, Se-ri escapes capture from Captain Ri and his four patrol officers and accidentally makes her way to his stationed village, where they meet again. He shields her from intelligence authorities led by Cho Cheol-gang (Oh Man-seok) who were alerted to the presence of an intruder.

Meanwhile, Se-ri's elder brother Se-hyung (Park Hyung Soo) becomes chairman and his wife, Sang-ah (Yoon Ji-min), wants to take over Se-ri's company. When Se-hyung hears from his North Korean contacts that his sister is still alive, he and his wife take active measures to prevent her from returning.

Captain Ri takes Se-ri into his own home and enlists the aid of his four officers to protect her from Cho Cheol-gang. He also makes plans to smuggle her back to South Korea. Their first attempt by boat fails miserably when they are spotted by the coast guard. On their second try, he helps Se-ri secure a slot on a North Korean team headed to Europe for a friendly games tournament. In between these efforts, she makes new friends in the village and begins to appreciate their old-fashioned, simpler ways of life.

Their plans are discovered, and Captain Ri is shot by Cho Cheol-gang's men in a highway confrontation. Se-ri drives the badly injured Jeong-hyeok to the hospital, giving up her chance to flee. He recovers and is angry at her failed escape, but his anger turns to gratitude when he is told she donated blood that helped save his life. By this time, the two of them can no longer hide their growing feelings for each other.

Jeong-hyeok's fiancé, Seo Dan (Seo Ji Hye), returns home from musical conservatory studies in Russia and discovers Jeong-hyeok is protecting Se-ri. She uncovers proof of Se-ri's wealthy family background and reports this to Captain Ri's father. To help his son and appease his future daughter-in-law's family, Director Ri organizes a fake border patrol search for an alleged deserter. This provides cover for Se-ri, who is safely escorted by Jeong-hyeok and his men to a path across the DMZ line.

Sang-ah calls an emergency board meeting and asks the members to vote in favor of a merger between Seri's Choice and Queen's Group, but Se-ri arrives at the meeting just in time, halting the vote. She resumes control of the business and returns to her opulent but empty life, and finds herself missing Captain Ri and her time in North Korea.

Up north, Ri Jeong-hyeok finds mounting evidence of Cho Cheol-gang's racketeering and direct involvement in his brother's murder. Cheol-gang is brought to trial and found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment, but successfully escapes on the way to prison. Jeong-hyeok realizes Cho Cheol-gang has crossed the border and sensing Se-ri's life might be in danger, he follows in pursuit and also crosses the border via an underground tunnel.

Jeong-hyeok reunites with Se-ri, who builds a cover story for him as her new bodyguard and introduces him to the comforts of her luxurious life in Seoul. She connects with city gang members to help locate Cho Cheol-gang.

Director Ri sends his son's men to retrieve Jeong-hyeok. After hiding out in an overnight jjimjilbang and a few near-encounters, Captain Ri and his men finally reunite. A grateful Se-ri takes care of them, providing them with food and shelter and sends them on a shopping spree.

Cheol-gang, alerted by Sang-ah of Se-ri's residence, tries to capture her, but Jeong-hyeok's team protects her. She is critically wounded in a confrontation between Cheol-gang and Jeong-hyeok, but survives. When Se-ri's father learns about Se-hyung's and Sang-ah's misdeeds through a recording which was provided by Man-bok, he takes away the chairmanship from his son and kicks them out of the family. Se-hyung blames his wife for their situation and she decides to inform the National Intelligence Service (NIS) of Se-ri's North Korean activities.

Cheol-gang is killed by the NIS, but Captain Ri and his company are detained. Jeong-hyeok takes full responsibility and lies to the authorities that he manipulated Se-ri for his own gain. This would absolve Se-ri and his company of all potential crimes. However, the NIS finds no incriminating behavior and even offers amnesty to the North Koreans and help to get settled in Seoul, but they decline and decide to return home. Both governments agree to a quiet prisoner exchange and Se-ri is exonerated of any crimes. Her stepmother, having reconciled with Se-ri, drives Se-ri at high speed to the exchange, where Se-ri gets to see Jeong-hyeok one last time before saying goodbye for good.

As Seung-jun is about to depart from North Korea, he learns that Dan is being held captive and he goes to save her. He succeeds but is shot. Dan professes her love during the ambulance ride but he dies in her arms. She grieves over his death and decides to avenge Seung-jun and catch the culprits. Ultimately, she finds evidence that Sang-ah and Se-hyung had used Cho Cheol-gang for their own purposes, which leads to their arrest by the joint task force of National Intelligence Service and the Seoul Police. Dan tells her mother and uncle that she will never marry and intends to continue her musical career.

Three years later, Se-hyung remains in jail and files for divorce. Se-ri continues managing Seri's Choice and her other half-brother, Se-jun, is the Chairman of Queen's Group, with the day-to-day business being handled by a professional CEO.

Before Jeong-hyeok left, he programmed a series of text messages for Se-ri with some help from the chief of National Intelligence Service. He teaches her how to lead a better lifestyle and to enjoy life with the people around her. Se-ri's tough boss image drops and she becomes a nicer and generous CEO to the people under her. One day, while landing from paragliding in Switzerland, she finds Jeong-hyeok in front of her. He has since been discharged from the military and has come to Switzerland to represent North Korea as a pianist. This would become a path where both can be together.

Se-ri creates a musical scholarship foundation that supports talented underprivileged children from around the world, with headquarters in Switzerland. She appoints Jeong-hyeok as a director of her foundation; every year he spends two weeks in Switzerland on foundation business and as a judge in the final competition for scholarships. Se-ri is also a director of her foundation, and every year spends the same two weeks with Jeong-hyeok, with whom she finally finds love and happiness.

She is also involved in an upcoming family succession battle, the latter making her the target of resentment from her half-brothers and their wives. After she rejected her brother's attempt to force her into an arranged marriage that would send her to the United Kingdom, she had numerous casual relationships with celebrities, but never developed any close companionships. She is nonetheless an independent wealthy businesswoman who runs her own successful fashion and beauty company, Seri's Choice. She is known for being a demanding boss, staging publicity stunts and is a picky eater who practices intermittent fasting. She meets Ri Jeong-hyeok after accidentally crash-landing in North Korea due to a paragliding accident, and falls in love with him as he shelters her in the North Korean military housing, where she becomes close to the ajummas and four of his soldiers.

A North Korean department store heiress and aspiring cellist who is also Ri Jeong-hyeok's fiancée through an affianced marriage arranged by their parents. While she has been infatuated with Jeong-hyeok since they were middle-school classmates, he doesn't reciprocate her feelings but agrees to the betrothed marriage out of a sense of duty towards his parents. Before the wedding, Dan desperately tries to prevent the marriage from becoming a sham after realising that Jeong-hyeok had never loved her from the start. She eventually falls for Seung-jun.
An intelligent, charming, but poor South Korean conman with British citizenship. After his father was scammed by Se-ri's father, leading to his family's bankruptcy, he ingratiated himself with Se-ri's brother, Se-hyung, in order to embezzle from the Yoon family's company. Se-hyung attempted to marry off Se-ri to Seung-jun in order to be rid of her, but Se-ri sensed his ill intentions on their first meeting and rejected him. Seung-jun nonetheless successfully cheated a fortune from the firm under Se-hyung's watch, and fled to North Korea to avoid arrest, while under pursuit by gangsters hired by Se-hyung. He eventually falls for Dan after running into her on many occasions.

Special appearances[edit]

Episodes[edit]

Production[edit]

The series reunites Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin after working together in the film The Negotiation.

Development[edit]

The premise of Crash Landing on You was inspired by a real event involving South Korean actress Jung Yang.[13][3][14] In September , Yang and three others had to be rescued after bad fog had caused their leisure boat to drift "into the maritime boundary between North and South Korea."[13][15]Park Ji-eun, the drama's screenwriter,[13] was introduced to North Korean defector turned film adviser and writer Kwak Moon-wan, who became part of the drama's writing team.[16][17] Kwak, who studied film directing in Pyongyang and had also been a member of an elite security force protecting the Kims, helped in crafting the drama's plot and in conceptualizing the setting and scenes in the drama portraying North Korean life.[16][17]

Netflix's investment also helped the show to garner the budget of US$20 million.

Filming[edit]

The production process proved to be "painstakingly meticulous", owing both to South Korea's relationship with North Korea where most of the story's plot ensues as well as to avoid any unintentional violations of the National Security Act which forbids public praise or propaganda of North Korea and the Kim Family.[18] The use of the honorific Chairman to refer to North Korea's leaders was avoided, visible propaganda signs avoid mentioning anything about Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-Il, or Kim Jong-Un while their mandatory portraits were usually either blurred or obscured by the camera angles, and the North Korean lapel pins used by the cast members taking North Korean roles were one third smaller than their actual size.[19]Props manager Joo Dong-man said the crew did not have a "guidebook on multiple hurdles he had to hop over – skillfully and delicately – to accurately depict the country while dodging criticism" and, thus, had to be careful "not to misrepresent the state". They worked with guidance from North Koreans living in South Korea and their research.[3][18]

The first script reading took place on July 31, in Sangam-dong, Seoul, and filming overseas started at the end of August [20] North Korean scenes were shot in South Korea and Mongolia.[3] Scenes that took place in Switzerland were shot on location.[3]

Chart performance[edit]

Reception[edit]

Commercial performance[edit]

With billion online views, Crash Landing on You outperformed the prior leader, Mr. Sunshine, for most viewed drama clips by million views as of February 17, [38] The success of the drama helped to boost brand items due to product placement. The lead characters portrayed by Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin ate Gold Olive Chicken, a product which had a % sales improvement due to the show.[3][39] There was also an increase in sales of the Swarovski earrings worn by Son Ye-jin.[40]

International response[edit]

It was a huge success in China. The hashtag for the drama's final episode has received over million views on China's Weibo. The streaming website for the drama, which holds the copyright in China, crashed on the night it aired the final episode due to the enormous number of users. It was extremely popular in Japan[13] during the period of the COVID pandemic via Netflix.[41][42] While the Korean Wave is a historically prominent component of media within Japan, Crash Landing on You has been uniquely influential there, in part due to its portrayal of daily life in North Korea.[41] The series was also a hit in the Philippines, where many viewers noted similarities between the plot line and the political narrative of the country during the COVID pandemic.[43]

In the United States, Variety named Crash Landing on You one of "The Best International Shows on Netflix",[44] and one of the "Best International TV Series of "[45]Time also ranked it as one of the best Korean dramas on Netflix.[46]Elle ranked it number 1 (out of 10) on the October 10 Best K-Dramas To Binge-Watch On Netflix list,[47] and Vogue listed it as one of "Netflix: 4 Korean dramas to discover this summer."[48]Boy Genius Report ranked it #2 of the five "K-dramas you absolutely must watch on Netflix."[49]BuzzFeed listed it as number 3 of the top 27 best K-dramas on Netflix.[50]Forbes noted that it ranked number 1 out of the top 10 on a Netflix's Instagram list of its most romantic series,[51] and Screen Rant ranked it as having the #2 (out of the top 10) "tear-jerking scenes in K-dramas."[52] In addition, Jo Walker of The Guardian's "Stream Team" called it "addictively off-the-wall, heartbreaking and hilarious."[53] Adella Suliman and Stella Kim of NBC News also suggested that the drama "features all the ingredients a viewer could wish for" and has "drawn a global audience of millions, many no doubt searching for entertainment as they while away their time in coronavirus-related lockdowns."[54] Wadzanai Mhute of The Daily Beast argues that Crash Landing on You, "was a cultural phenomenon in its native South Korea, and it's gone criminally overlooked in the States, where it's available to stream on Netflix."[55] Megan O'Keefe of Decider states that, "Crash Landing on You is a show unlike anything you've ever seen. It has insane action sequences, glorious montages of wealth porn, unblinking looks at the impoverished lives of everyday North Koreans, and one of the most heart-wrenching love stories in ages. With 16 minute-long episodes, it's truly a feast to be savored and the perfect antidote to the winter quarantine blues."[56]

Al Jazeera stated that it is a hallyu success.[57]

Representation of and reception in South and North Korea[edit]

General[edit]

Although the series is a work of fiction, it has received some positive reviews from North Korean defectors for its depiction of everyday life in North Korea. At the same time, some details, such as the availability of food, relatively warm behavior of the army and the ease with which the characters cross the border have been criticized.[58][19][16][59][54] One of the extras (who portrayed a North Korean villager) is a writer and actress from North Korea who states that she felt "like [she] was actually back in a North Korean village."[59] Kwak Moon-wan, a North Korean defector, who had served with the Supreme Guard Command (which protects the ruling Kim family) worked as an adviser for the series, providing the writers with details about life in North Korea as well as North Korean governmental agencies that added credibility to the show.[60] He acknowledged some of the criticism, admitting that he has taken liberties with the depiction of North Korea (such as not mentioning food shortages), but rejected the claim that he was glamorizing the regime or drawing a false equivalence, saying that the show also depicted some of the darker aspect of life under the regime, such as the issue of kotjebi (child homeless) and the frequent power cuts. Some North Korean refugees, such as Chun Hyo-jin, who defected from the border village of Hyesan at the age of nineteen, tend to agree: "Even if what they say, that it glamorizes North Korea, is true, would they choose to live there? I don't think so". Even though the drama leaves political matters aside, which are essential to the North Korea issue as she sees it, she says it still is of great significance: "Its depiction of North Korea is a bit far from reality, but it has made the people interested in North Korea".[61] The drama's producer Lee Jung-hyo said during a press conference in Seoul in December: "I know some people are uncomfortable about our subject, North Korea, but we don't portray a wholly authentic North Korea in our drama. Most settings are closer to a fantasy, although some aspects do reflect real North Korean life".[62]

Kang Na-ra, a North Korean defector who advised the show's production team, stated that about 60% of North Korea's depiction in the show is accurate:[63] "The richer families in North Korea like to show off their wealth by adding lace curtains to their windows. So that was pretty well portrayed". She also appreciated the detail about kimchi caves: "Since rural North Korea doesn't get electricity, they don't have refrigerators. They have kimchi caves where they store kimchi, and that was also recreated well".[64] House checks are also a regular affair. She revealed that she once had to hide inside a furnace at the house of the broker who helped her to escape to avoid detection. In the drama, the heiress had to hide in the kimchi storage area when security forces came knocking one night. As depicted in the drama, North Koreans are allowed to choose only from a fixed list of hair styles - 18 for women and 28 for men. "There's a punishment for you if you don't comply" Kang said in an interview with YouTube channel DKDKTV.[65] On the other hand, as she explained in a YouTube video, the characters were able to slip across the border much more easily than in real life: "I had to pay a broker 10 million won (US$8,) to swim across the Yalu river [which borders North Korea and China] while being shot at from behind by soldiers [when I escaped]".[66] Cartoonist Choi Seong-guk, who defected to the South in , also said the drama set is 60% accurate. The portrayal of jangmadang, or local markets where all kinds of goods, including imports from South Korea, are sold is especially real, he told The Sunday Times. However, he felt that the drama "glamorized the soldiers too much, almost to an uncomfortable extent". He said North Korean men enter the military when they are 17 and serve for 10 to 13 years. "During this time, they areruthless and harsh, robbing homes and raping women at night".[65] Still, he hopes the drama will make its way to North Korea and go viral: "I hope the North Koreans who see this drama will realize how positively the South Koreans think of them and learn to change".[65]

There were also critical responses to the themes of the drama in both regions. In January , The Christian Liberal Party (CLP) filed a complaint in South Korea against tvN at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, accusing the network of glamorizing North Korea through this series, in violation of the National Security Law.[67][68][69] Then, in March , a few North Korean media outlets criticized unnamed South Korean programs and films that explored relations between North and South Korea. While Crash Landing on You was not directly mentioned by the media outlets, it was perceived to be among the referenced works. Another is the film, Ashfall, although that film was also not directly cited in the articles.[70][71]

Scholarship[edit]

Stephen Epstein (Victoria University of Wellington) and Christopher Green (Leiden University) suggest that while Crash Landing on You is formulaic, it also "is a crucial text for evaluating ongoing change in South Korean popular representations of its neighbour. Indeed, given the concerted use of North Korean backdrops in Crash Landing on You and the size and global extent of its audiences, the show is likely the most noteworthy South Korean popular culture representation of North Korea yet produced."[72] Yun Suk-jin, a professor at Chungnam National University concurs, noting that the series "changed the stereotypes on North Korea and candidly showed that it too is a place where people live."[59] Sarah A. Son, Lecturer in Korean Studies at the University of Sheffield also agrees, noting that Crash Landing on You responds to the "socio-cultural divide" between the North and the South, which academic scholarship cites as one of the biggest obstacles to future unification. Son argues that "through the re-framing of stereotypes, albeit with some creative licence, Crash Landing on You arguably humanises the North for its audience in ways that inter-Korean dialogue has not in recent years. Despite its soft-focus romanticisation of the political situation, Crash Landing on You brings the pain of the division to a personal level for a generation of Koreans who, unlike their grandparents, have no memory of what it was like to be a single nation."[17]

Joanna Elfving-Hwang, Associate Professor of Korean Studies at the University of Western Australia notes that "North Korea tends to appear in our imagination as the 'axis of evil', we think of [negative things like] nuclear weapons and human rights abusesthis drama has dared to think about North Korean people differently and represented them as quite human and quite Korean."[66] Steve Hung Lok-wai, a Korean Affairs expert from the Chinese University of Hong Kong states that the drama sidestepped larger political issues through a narrative that did not end with the male lead's defection: "Lots of people questioned whether the male lead, the North Korean soldier, would end up defecting to the South for love, but they were able to sidestep that scenario and gave it a plausible ending where the two would meet in Switzerland". Thus, he argues, it's "quite smart because they avoided all the real taboos but made it believable enough where it would make people think about these political problems."[66] John Delury, a professor at Yonsei University, praised the series for its decision to draw parallels between powerful families in both the South and the North, and to humanize North Koreans beyond generic stereotypes.[73]

Ratings[edit]

The series was a huge rating success in South-Korea. This series aired on tvN, a cable channel/pay TV which normally has a relatively smaller audience compared to free-to-air TV/public broadcasters (KBS, SBS, MBC and EBS). Crash Landing on You is the third highest-rated South Korean TV drama in cable television history.[74] Early in its run, Crash Landing on You was the fourth highest rated Korean cable drama.[75] The final episode's ratings made it the second highest rated Korean drama in cable television history, surpassing fellow tvN dramas Reply and Guardian: The Lonely and Great God until .[76]It finally became the third highest rated drama.
