The show follows South Korean heiress Yoon Seri, who gets stranded in North Korea after a paragliding accident. She is rescued by Captain Ri Jin-hyuk, who helps her hide and ultimately go back home. Predictably, the two fall in love over the course of time. The story captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the world, making it one of the most popular TV shows around.

One of the reasons for the show’s popularity was the chemistry between the lead actors Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin.

Soon after getting married, the couple shared that they were expecting their first child together.

If you’re a fan of CLoY, then you’re in luck because Son Ye-jin has some of the most impressive K-dramas and movies in her filmography. The award-winning actress boasts a two-decade-long career with a wide variety of roles.
