Son Ye Jin is a South Korean Heiress in Love with Hyun Bin’s North Korean Officer in Romance Drama Crash Landed Love

The premise is out for Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin‘s upcoming K-drama and it’s pretty head scratchy.

I dunno but Crash Landed Love (or Love’s Crash Landing) sounds like a bad rom-com movie script – Son Ye Jin plays a top 1% wealthy South Korean heiress who crash lands in North Korea after a paragliding/parachuting mishap and Hyun Bin is the handsome capable North Korean military officer who hides her presence and then they fall in love. Like wuh? I don’t doubt the acting ability of these two gorgeous movie stars, nor their ability to generate romantic chemistry with each other, but goodness does the script synopsis sound stupid as all out.
