Crash Landing on You is a South Korean drama series about a successful young businesswoman, Yoon Se-ri, who has her own fashion and beauty company. Right before her father announces her as the next CEO of his vast conglomerate, Se-ri has an accident. While paragliding to test her latest sportswear line, Se-ri is caught in a tornado, which takes her to the Korean Demilitarized Zone, where she meets Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok. Then, she accidentally goes to North Korea, where intelligence officers are alarmed about an intruder into their territory. The following is a story full of adventure and romance.
The last episode of the series was released in February 2020, and we haven’t heard back from the show after that. Will there be a Crash Landing on You Season 2, or was the series supposed to have only 1 season? The answers are below.
Crash Landing on You Season 2 Release Date
As those who watched the show know, the series’ ending was pretty conclusive. Every storyline got a proper ending, and no questions were left unanswered. This might be why we haven’t heard anything regarding the 2nd season. Also, we know that K-dramas rarely get renewed for Season 2 as the story usually ends in the 1st season.
It is also known that Crash Landing on You became a massive hit in South Korea and other countries after it was released on Netflix. Still, there is no confirmation for a 2nd season. However, in November 2021, it was announced that Netflix was developing an American remake of the series, although we don’t have any other details.
Despite all of these, there could be a 2nd season of the show if the creators deemed it okay to write a continuation for the story. We guess the earliest release date would be late 2023 since there are still no developments about a script or a potential cast.
Is Crash Landing on You based on a true story?
Only the accident that Se-ri goes through is based on an actual event, explained the writer of the series, Park Ji Eun. The writer said that the event was inspired by an incident on the news in 2008. The news was about an actress named Jung Yang, who rode a leisure boat in Incheon. Due to bad weather, the boat was swept away and was about to cross the Northern Limit Line, which separates South Korea from North Korea. Jung Yang said that she immediately turned the boat around when she heard a fisherman speaking in a North Korean accent.
The actress also noted that a North Korean coast guard was chasing after her, but she resolved the issue by sending an emergency message. All in all, the series was inspired by this incident, but the rest of the story is purely fictional.
Why Crash Landing on You is so popular?
There are many reasons why this show turned out to be so popular. The 1st thing to mention would be the performances of the show’s lead actors, Hyun Bin and Son Ye-Jin. The 2 of them were already quite popular in South Korea before they jumped on this project, so their popularity significantly affected how many viewers watched the series. Also, many viewers loved the actors’ chemistry, saying they looked incredible as a couple. It turns out that Bin and Ye-Jin went on to become a couple in real life as well. They got married earlier this year and are already expecting a baby!
Another aspect that was loved by the audience was the show’s comedic moments, which provided breaks between the show’s dramatic and political scenes. The comedy was sustained by the show’s supporting characters, who were loved almost as equally as the main characters. Also, the series is packed with many adventurous, romantic, and mysterious moments, making viewing this series an incredible experience.
