Will the hit Korean series crash land on Netflix again?
'Crash Landing on You' is currently the third highest-rated South Korean TV drama in cable television history.
The romantic Kdrama series landed with an incredible impact on Netflix in December 2019 and remained one of the most talked-about Korean shows up to this date.
'Crash Landing on You' follows the story of a South Korean heiress who accidentally lands in North Korea after a paragliding incident.
Written by Park Ji-eun and directed by Lee Jeong-hyo, the series is admired for its aesthetics, story, and heartfelt romance.
Let's find out what the future holds for this highly-successful show.
'Crash Landing on You' is not renewed for season 2 yet. Despite its popularity, there is a possibilitity that the hit Kdrama series will no longer return for another season.
The first season concluded on a definitive note, with no loose ending in the plot left. Based on how the show ended, it is clear that the creators had no initial plans to extend the series beyond season one. Most of the characters achieved their goals and resolved their conflicts despite many challenges. It was a well-rounded ending, and there is nothing left to cover.
Aside from that, K-drama shows also very rarely get renewed for season 2. They often get created with a definite plot in mind, including a clear beginning, middle, and end. However, in an unlikely incident that the series gets renewed for another season, we will make sure to update this space for you.
There is no renewal in sight, so there is no release date for season 2 yet. The first season of 'Crash Landing on You' aired on tvN in South Korea and Netflix worldwide from December 14, 2019, to February 16, 2020.
We will update this space in case there will be new development.
'Crash Landing on You' follows the story of Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin), a South Korean heiress to a large business conglomerate. She also runs her own company, Se-ri's Choice, to earn money independently and get away from the ire of her jealous stepmother.
One day, she goes out paragliding and gets caught in an unexpected tornado. She ends up crash landing in North Korea, where she meets Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok (Hyun Bin).
In Yoon Se-ri's absence, her elder brother took over the family business, and his wife wanted to get Se-ris Choice, too. Upon hearing that Se-ri is still alive, they worked hard to prevent her from returning.
Throughout the series, we see Yoon Se-ri and Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok spend a lot of time as the latter tries to smuggle Yoon Se-ri back to South Korea. While staying in a foreign nation, Yoon Se-ri gets exposed to the hardships and struggles in North Korea. She learns to appreciate the simple things in life.
Their fateful encounter changed both of their lives for the better. Yoon Se-ri returns to South Korea and becomes a much kinder and generous CEO. Captain Ri gets the chance to pursue his musical passion.
At the end of the series, the two reunited in Switzerland. Jeong-hyeok is now discharged from the military and became a professional pianist representing North Korea.
'Crash Landing on You' season 2 won't likely happen anymore, so we are already preparing ourselves for the sad reality that the original cast will no longer reprise their roles.
The season one cast includes:
Son Ye-jin as Yoon Se-ri, the South Korean heiress who lands in North Korea after a paragliding incident.
Hyun Bin stars as Ri Jeong-hyeok, the emotionally-reserved Captain of Company Five in the Korean People's Army.
