Screenwriter Park Ji Eun’s Upcoming Crash Landing on You Official Poster Criticized for Looking Too Much Like Her You From Another Star

If you have four leads, two men and two women, and it’s a glossy high profile drama, it probably would be best to avoid in any way shape or form other high profile drama work product. But this one is funny because the two dramas are from the same screenwriter lol. Writer Park Ji Eun‘s next drama Crash Landing on You with Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin, Seo Ji Hye, and Kim Jung Hyun released the official group drama poster and it’s being criticized for evoking her own mega hit drama You From Another Star. The rich and beautiful female lead in a sexy dress, the stoic and handsome male lead with ramrod posture, and the two supporting leads flanking them, the placement of the four is exactly the same as YFAS for sure. But of course there is only so many ways to arrange four leads in a drama poster so eh, it doesn’t bother me as long as Park Ji Eun is good with it.

  1. They are acting a little desperate to recreate the hype and buzz from her most popular work. It makes me fearful that they may not have a solid product so they have to resort to gimmicks to draw viewers. I hope I’m wrong. Hotel del Luna posters were so unoriginal but I loved the drama to bits so I hope it’s the same here. So far none of the teasers or promos have enticed me to watch this, it’s only the cast that draws me but even they are looking too stiff and unnatural in the teasers :/

  2. Just seen their press conference news and photos. Questions were brought up again of their past dating rumours. I predicted this would happen back in January. Both laughed about it. Not exactly deny or confirm but lots of heart eyes, cute couple shots and selfies. Great way to draw in fans to see what will actually happen in drama and real life. To quote of them “It’s rare for actors to meet again in another project, so I think this is fate.” Anyways will watch drama for the star power and the hype.

  3. Eh, the poster layout is pretty unimaginative, but I think the four leads elevate it with their attitudes. They really feel in-character, more so than with the YFAS poster where I just see the actors posing. I especially love Binnie’s military bearing and that solemn soldier aura he’s sending out. I mean, I’m no military expert, but his posture and facial expression are really selling his job description for someone of my noob level. The contrast between him and Kim Jung Hyun even though they inhabit the same basic pose (simple standing upright, with the arms down, framing the body) is pretty amazing. Kim Soo-hyun and Park Hae‑jin, in the YFAS poster, don’t look as different as the guys in the Crash-landing poster do. (The ladies all look amazing and sassy in ways that are individually flavored.)

    • Binnie actually served in the marines corp for 2 years (2011-2013), the toughest unit in the Korean military and got outstanding results. This was during the compulsory military enlistment for all Korean males. So his soldier role was made all the real coz he did went through real army training. Kudos to him.

  4. Quietly and curiously optimistic please be good! However at least this time SYJ scored well with that sleek red dress and strappy stilettos. I trust the writer to deliver on the story since I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her last two. The talent is there no concerns with that it’s the script that will make or break this. Good luck Crash Landing cast and crew on your season. ❤️

  5. At first I thought the poster doesn’t relate much to the storyline too, however, after watching their press conference, the director pointed out that the he wanted the story to be “fantasy-like romantic comedy drama” instead of a “realistic” romantic drama. In comparison to the melo-dramatic first poster of SYJ and HB next to the bonfire, I think this poster shows the “fantasy” or “unrealistic” side of the story, and also presents the individual features or personality of each main characters. Looking forward to their acting skills and the drama storyline! Hope it will have a good start!!

  6. low budget poster. difficult to recreate YFAS hype. LotBS was meh and I could not even finish it. Of coz the premises of CLoY will be fantasy, how will a parachute be allowed to land in NK without getting shot dead for goodness sake in the next million years? the storyline is so unrealistic. maybe the acting will save it? i prefer an alien story than a political NK/SK saga.

  7. For me, her best drama so far still You Who Rolled in Unexpectedly aka My Husband Got a Family. It’s a big disappoinment that she’s stll stuck in YFAS, just because it’s her best commercial success..
