Crash Landing On You is a phenomenal tvN and Netflix production. Son Ye Jin played the role of Yun Se-ri, also known as ‘Seris Hilton’ or the Paris Hilton of South Korea, who suddenly crash-landed in the north of the border. She met and fell in love with Ri Jeong-hyeok, more popularly known as Captain Ri, who is a North Korean elite soldier. Their love blossomed against all odds, and it was not all sweet and rosy for the oddly-matched couple.
