Crash Landing on You is a love story about a South Korean heiress and North Korean army officer. A paragliding mishap drops her in North Korea and into the life of the army officer, who decides he will help her hide.

Are you intrigued? Here are six reasons why you should and need to watch this drama ASAP.

Read on to find out more!

#1 Unique plot that gives you a glimpse of what North Korea looks like

The plot for Crash Landing on You is refreshing as there aren't many K-dramas that portray the lives of those in North Korea. Although there are a few dramas out there, the setting usually shifts back to South Korea after a few episodes but most of Crash Landing on You's setting remains in the North.

Of course, the drama wasn't actually filmed in North Korea but we got to applaud the production team for the effort put into the props, set and special effects. Watch the drama to see for yourself what it's like!

#2 Solid acting skills

The main leads of the drama are Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin, an actor and actress who have more than 10 years of acting experience under their belts.

You might remember Hyun Bin from the insanely popular K-drama Secret Garden and Son Ye Jin from Personal Taste. Both of them have acted together previously in a 2018 crime thriller movie, The Negotiation.

Just by looking at the two still images above, their eyes convey so much emotions that pulls you in. We don't want to spoil the show for you but watch the drama and you will get why we are obsessed with this K-drama!

#3 Good looking male and female lead

Son Ye Jin used to frequently post pictures and videos of herself with Hyun Bin on her Instagram account and that ignited the rumours that they were more than friends.

What added fuel to the fire even more was when both of them were spotted grocery shopping together in Los Angeles early last year. However, both them and their agencies have denied the rumours.

Beware though, you might just start shipping them together and rooting for them to be a real life couple after watching this show!

#5 Beautiful cinematography
