As hit Korean dramas currently tend to be renewed for new seasons, fans are looking forward to the sequels of Crash Landing On You and The Heirs.
Korean TV producers are increasingly interested in the audience’s tastes as many famous dramas have continuously released more than one season. For example, following the massive success of season 1, season 2 and 3 of the hit drama “Penthouse: War In Life” respectively came out earlier this year. Netflix’s romance series “Love Alarm” was also renewed for a second season.
The release of more than one season is showing that this is a new trend for Korean dramas. According to many readers of a news site, two dramas that fans are especially looking forward to a sequel are “Crash Landing On You” and “The Heirs”.
“The Heirs”, starring Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, Kim Woo Bin…, is set in an elite high school. The drama became a hit throughout Asia in 2013 and sold the international broadcasting rights to 13 countries. “The Heirs” is also the work that brought the global popularity of the duo Park Shin Hye – Lee Min Ho to the next level. Fans of the highschool romance drama have repeatedly asked the producers to continue making The Heirs 2.
Aired at the end of 2019, “Crash Landing On You” achieved great success thanks to its unique script written by screenwriter Park Ji Eun and a star-studded cast including Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin, Kim Jung Hyun, Seo Ji Hye,… The drama depicts an emotional and fascinating cross-border romance. “Crash Landing On You” is the highest-rated tvN drama and ranks third among Korean dramas with the highest ratings in the history of cable TV.
After the drama ended, the public was excited when Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin confirmed to be dating in real life, becoming the most powerful couple in the industry. Many viewers have expressed their wish for “Crash Landing on You” to be renewed for another season, and both Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin to return as the main couple.
On July 11, Hyun Bin openly expressed his affection for the “Nation’s first love” at a fan meeting to celebrate his 18th debut anniversary. When asked to send a message to the female lead of “Crash Landing On You” – Se Ri (Son Ye Jin), the actor said: “You are always in my eyes. No matter what happens, I will always be by your side to protect you.” The first time he publicly confessed his feelings to Son Ye Jin on camera caused the handsome actor to blush with embarrassment.
