Well, for everyone who has been wondering and guessing as to who will get Hyun Bin and Son Yejin’s upcoming drama Crash landing on You (aka Crash landed Love aka Love’s Emergency Landing) to the streaming site, Netflix has landed it. This goes along with Netflix’s pretty aggressive campaign to purchase a good amount of Korean dramas as well as increase its own original programming of Korean dramas.
I am pretty excited for this TV show because it is by the writer of My Love From Another Star, so you know it will be quirky, and it has two actors who excel in romances with Hyun Bin and Son Yejin. Their character descriptions are also pretty fun because they both are at the top of their game in their lives. He is a major player in the North Korea military with a very good life ahead of him and she is basically living a life close to Royalty in South Korea. When they meet, their lives will be flipped upside down.
The aggressive push by Netflix to command the international Korean drama market might have something to do with Disney Plus stepping into take a whole slew of their streaming projects away, as well as other major players creating their own streaming sites for their content. But I think no one really hurts as much as Disney. Disney owns everything y’all. Pixar, all the Marvel characters (except Spiderman), all their Disney characters, all of Star Wars, Avatar, Fox Studios, Hulu, FX and I’m sure there are other things I am missing.
Other original shows Netflix plans on airing soon are a science fiction romance My Holo Love, the supernatural action drama The School Nurse Files, a stand-up series named Park Narae: Glamor Warning and the well received zombie series Kingdom which is set to air its second season in early 2020.
