案の定面白い、でもそれだけじゃないドラマ:ドラマ「愛の不時着」の感想 Sure Enough, This Drama is Enjoyable, But Also Informative: My impressions of the drama called ‘Crash Landing on You’


 How meaningful the title of this drama is! That sounds a bit melodramatic but somehow I can’t help feeling excited. I watched the NETFLIX drama called ‘Crash Landing on You’. I felt that it deserves its popularity. It was so enjoyable. I guess some people tend to be reluctant to watch this drama just because it is a Korean drama. However, you can’t categorize this drama so easily.  



 The summary from the official site is as follows.


“It is about a chaebol heiress who, while paragliding in Seoul, South Korea, is swept up in a sudden storm, crash-lands in the North Korean portion of the demilitarized zone, and meets a Captain in the Korean People’s Army. She has no choice but to live with him, who is square, while hiding her identity. ”


 The lady’s name is Yoon Se-ri and the captain’s name is Ri Jeong-hyeok. Jeong-hyeok tries to get her back to South Korea safely but they end up falling in love despite knowing they shouldn’t. That explanation may make you guess that this drama should be a typical Korean drama, which tend to be a serious, heart breaking story. However, this drama has an undercurrent of cheerfulness and humor. The conversation between Se-ri and Jeong-hyeok is quite humorous and makes me smile, plus the characters of the people around them are so exhilarating that I often burst out laughing and ended up feeling deep affection toward them. Moreover, there are a lot of scenes where they make fun of some typical settings which tend to be seen in Korean dramas, so I was impressed, too.    


 As a matter of fact, such cheerful atmosphere highlights the harsh reality in the Korean peninsula. Despite the fact that they are of the same race, it’s fatal to pass across the border, and when I came to think of it, tears rolled down my cheeks. We Japanese cannot say that we have nothing to do with their history.


 The ending of this drama is really unpredictable. I was impressed by the script. It will surely spoil your fun to talk about it. I recommend you to watch this drama if you haven’t yet.
