That this drama can get high ratings (for cable) despite the very problematic North Korean setting (during the current political climate) is a testament to the star power of Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin as well as the public’s appetite for a traditional Hallyu romance. The second episode of Crash Landing on You rose in ratings to 6.845%, and if next week it breaks 7% then this is definitely a hit of the Memories of Alhambra/Boyfriend variety and not a flop of the Arthdal Chronicles level for tvN. I enjoyed the second episode, the drama is still easy to watch and entertaining enough, I’m not taking it seriously so see nothing glaring about the acting of both leads. I can’t say their chemistry is as insanely good as I was expecting given all that real life scandal hoopla, it’s just nice and good so far. The extent of the story is basically Son Ye Jin meets the love of her life who happens to be North Korean, and well who said fate isn’t a bitch lol.
