Crash Landing on You: Crush Landing on Hyun Bin

“Crash Landing on You” aired its final episode in tvN cable channel in South Korea last February 16, 2020, with highest peak rating of 24.10%.  It scored the highest rating for any tvN drama, dodging “Goblin” at second place and “Reply 1988” third.  It is also currently available in Neflix.

Two weeks after the end of its run, “Crash Landing On You”, is still the talk of the town and Hyun Bin, who plays the handsome Captain Ri, is now every woman’s ‘oppa’, be it the tweeners, the teenagers, the young adults, the middle aged women, and even the grandmothers!

Having a hit drama under his name is not new to Hyun Bin.  While he made his debut as an actor in 2003, he shot to stardom in 2005 when he played the male lead opposite to leading lady Kim Sun Ah in My Name Is Kim Sam Soon aka My Lovely Sam Soon.  A romantic comedy, it was a massive hit with an average rating of 37.60%, and a finale rating of 49.10% on national television.

Another popular drama of Hyun Bin is 2010’s romantic fantasy drama “Secret Garden”, opposite Korean actress Ha Ji Won, which garnered average ratings of 30%.  In this drama, he lent his voice in the soundtrack with the song, “That Man”, which was number one in eight Korean music thresholds that time.

2008’s Worlds Within was likewise a popular drama where Hyun Bin acted opposite Korean actress Song Hye Kyo.  Song Hye Kyo reportedly became his girlfriend after the conclusion of the drama.  Their relationship lasted for two years and Song Hye Kyo later became Mrs. Song Joong Ki in October 2016. 

Hyun Bin had a brief romance with actress Kang Sora in December 2016 but they broke up in 2017.

At present, the hottest Oppa in town is not in a relationship but there have been persistent dating rumours linking him to Crash Landing On You leading lady, Son Ye Jin.  Their respective agencies deny the reports though.

Those who are still missing their weekly fix of Hyun Bin can watch him in Secret Garden, Hyde Jekyll Me, and Memories of the Alhambra over at Netflix.  Or better yet, get a round two of Crash Landing On You instead.
