Crash Landing on You Episode 2 Recap

Crash Landing on You Episode 2 Recap . Let us dive into this episode of Crash Landing on You which hooked me into liking this drama even more. This episode was great and provided more details and depth to the male lead. It also introduces conflicts and draws a line between friends and foes. Keep in mind these recaps do contain spoilers.

I Loved the Portrayal of North Korean Life

I find myself loving the portrayal of the everyday life of North Koreans. Normally in the media, we get a sense of doom for the average North Korean and while it may be true to some extent, media never try to show us the everyday life of the common people. They managed to make an extremely serious and delicate topic light and insightful. They do try to show that not all North Koreans are enemies and are living normal lives or at least normal for them. A lot of work to make it look as realistic as possible and I truly appreciate it.

The chemistry between Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin

Only the second episode in and I am totally in love with this kdrama, the chemistry between Hyun Bin and Son Ye-Jin is just to die for. I love everything about Son Ye-Jin, she is such an amazing actor and Hyun is just sexy. The banter between Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin is just great, it’s also very funny and I love that Son Ye Jin is a very smart character. 

Despite Hyun Bin appearing to be cold and indifferent, he has a very caring side. He showed this when he bought her candle and female products.

Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin Character Are More Complex Than You Think

A revelation in the latter part of this episode showed that Son Ye Jin contemplated killing herself. I was a bit taken aback and I wonder how much pain she must be carrying to even consider such an act. However, from what we have seen so far it is clear she has a very bad relationship with her family, especially her mom. So the need for suicide might stem from family issues. Despite this dark past her character so far has been very bright and funny even though she is currently in a very desperate situation stuck in the very strick North Korea. 


Hyun Bin Character comes off as being stiff, cold, indifferent and most of all a sucker for following rules. However, this might be because he is from a very high ranking family and given that North Korea is so strict there are plenty of eyes on him. Plus it is revealed that he lost his older brother which might be why he currently has the way he is.

Hyun Bin Declares That Son Ye Jin is His Fiance

To save Son Ye Jin’s life, Hyun Bin declared before everyone in the community that she was his fiance. This was in the final minutes of this episode. His house was searched and she was found in his Kimchi Cellar hiding lol moment by the way. This declaration is going to make upcoming episodes so entertaining, they will have to live and pretend to be together to avoid suspicion and save her life.


Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin May Have Met Before

Hyun Bin is a high ranking member of North Korea which means he has the privilege of traveling outside the country. It seems that Hyun Bin and Son Ye met in Switzerland. In the last minutes of this episode we saw them standing side by side in Switzerland enjoying the view. Also when Son Ye Jin was looking through his documents she mentioned that she may have seen him before. So seems to be a lot of backstories between these two that we will surely get to see in the coming weeks but if the first two episodes are indicative of where this drama is headed then I am here for the ride.



This episode was very entertaining. I really love the drama so far and will be writing the recap on all episodes so stay tuned. BookMark Us, please.
