8.6 - Podcast Review of Episode 6 of Crash Landing On You (CLOY)

Today, we’ll be discussing Episode 6 of Crash Landing On You, the hit K Drama on Netflix starring Hyun Bin as Ri Jyeong hyeok, Son Ye-jin as Yoon Se-ri, Seo Ji-hye as Seo Dan and Kim Jung-hyun as Gu Seung joon. We discuss:

  • The songs we heard during the recap: Here I Am Again by Yerin Baek and Picnic by Nam Hye Seung and Park Sang Hee

  • Our four leads have all met at this point and there are some interesting triangles forming.

  • Gu Seung jun, Se-ri and Captain Ri are each trying to figure out what’s going on, but each is missing key information.

  • Gu Seung jun is hoping to use the fact that Se-ri is in North Korea as his bargaining chip against Yoon Se-hyeung. Little does he realize that his asking Cho Cheol Gang to keep Se-ri in North Korea is putting her in real danger.

  • How all of our research has led us to believe that listening devices are commonplace all over North Korea, especially in places where foreigners congregate.

  • We’re not sure if Seo Dan loves Captain Ri but she is certainly not going to let another woman take him away from her.

  • Captain Ri is a man who keeps his promises. He promised to keep Se-ri safe, so he goes after the Kamaz trucks at the end of the episode. We also see that he intends to honor his promise to Seo Dan, a promise made seven years ago to marry her.

  • Captain Ri and Se-ri have basically confessed their feelings for each other. She does it through her words, while he expresses it through his actions.

  • Cho Cheol Gang shows Jung Man bok a photo of Se-ri, saying he needs to have her never leave North Korea. Jung Man bok is in agony because he will be party to another murder, this time of someone who has been kind to his wife and son.

  • We see that Cho Cheol Gang is untouchable because he’s done favors for, or given money to, all of the senior officers.

  • Captain Ri protects Se-ri at huge personal cost to himself when he goes after the Kamaz trucks and takes a bullet in the back.

  1. Why does Cho Cheol Gang remind me of Gato from Gyeongseong Creature?
    I never thought to compare Seri and the pig. That was a good catch.
    If you think Lovely Runner was hard to understand at first, Twinkling Watermelon is even move confusing. I'm concurrently watching that and Tell Me You That You Love Me.
    If you decide to cover Lovely Runner, watch True Beauty first. There are a lot of similarities, except the time travel and death.

    1. Cho Cheol Gang and Col. Kato have a similar demeanor. They are focused on their missions and are willing to sacrifice people for it. Although Cho Cheol Gang is corrupt, both are incredibly cruel.

      I loved Lovely Runner and did find it hard to understand. I had to think hard about the timelines and what was getting affected. Twinkling Watermelon is on the list! Thanks for recommending True Beauty; will add that to my very long list!

      Just started Itaewon Class. Loved the first episode!

  2. Maybe it’s that cold blooded stare that Jo Cheol Gang and Col Kato have in common.

    I’m making my way through The Lovely Runner, finally getting to the last several episodes.

    I haven’t watched Twinkling Watermelon though it looked interesting. Koreans really like their time travel!

    1. Time travel has been one of my favorite plot points since childhood. And that has caused me to search if I've ever written about it. Such a rabbit hole that has led me through!
