On this episode, we discuss why Crash Landing on You (available on Netflix) is the perfect gateway Kdrama to hook new fans and give seasoned ones something to appreciate. Topics include: Is Captain Ri (played by Hyun Bin) the perfect alpha? What’s the difference between a character who is an alpha and one who is an alphahole? Why is Yoon Se-Ri (played by Son Ye-jin) a boss in every sense of the word? How can we appreciate Se-Ri’s arc from a feminist perspective?
And the all important—who wore it better, Captain Ri in his North Korean military uniform and bowl cut or Captain Ri in Seoul rocking swept-back hair and a suit?
