The production company Pop Music revealed today, March 29, 2021, that Crash Landing on You (popularly known worldwide as CLOY) will be adapted into a musical.
If you have been living under a massive rock, Crash Landing On You is a story of a South Korean heiress, Yoon Se-ri (played by Son Ye-jin) who accidentally crash-landed in North Korea because of a paragliding incident. She then meets a North Korean army officer, Captain Ri Jeong Hyeok (portrayed by Hyun Bin).
A phenomenal hit, it has been reported that Crash Landing On You is the second highest-rated drama in Korean history. In an interview, Minyoung Kim, Vice President of Korean Content at Netflix said that the series brought more audiences to the streaming platform.
Crash Landing On You, The Musical
Following the news of Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin confirming their dating status at the start of this year, Crash Landing On You (which no doubt helped strengthen the relationship of the stars of the TVN and Neftlix series) is a source of many surprises, even those we didn’t think possible. With Crash Landing On You: The Musical, there is much more to explore and entertain with.
“We concluded the deal for publication rights with Studio Dragon, and we plan to start choosing the main staff and begin casting. We will do our best to create a good project. In particular, since it’s a project in which the fame of the source IP (intellectual property) is very large, we’ve already received inquiries from many actors and foreign production companies,” Pop Music CEO’s Kim Jin Seok said in a statement.
As reported by Soompi, the curtains of Crash Landing On You: The Musical will rise in Seoul sometime in mid-2022. So, that is something to look forward to, for sure.
While we all wait, let’s all re-watch Crash Landing On You on Netflix or listen to CLOY’s Official Soundtrack, as curated by thisistpaul on Spotify.
