In this must-watch romantic Korean drama, the writer replaces the ship with a paragliding. According to him the choice of paragliding becomes a stronger story of meaning. With a fairly relaxed activity makes the main players build chemistry with each other. According to the director, Lee Jong hyo, judging the play written so much fun.

However, filming is not possible in North Korea but can be done with a North Korean feel that is in Jeju Island, Mongolia, and South Korea. In addition to these three places, some also take in incheon, chungju, and busan areas. So the drama is so visceral that it has a Korean feel even though the shooting remains in South Korea.

The two’s attempt to meet was a struggle because it carried the names of two countries in conflict. There is no responsibility even on the part of conglomerate Yoon Se Ri to hold concerts every year in Switzerland. The concert was held outside his country in the hope that the two could meet. What a struggle of love that makes the hearts of the audience very much follow the storyline.

Why “CLOY” Is A Must-Watch

The first reason is because thanks to the acting of the two main actors who are very eye-catching. This is nothing but a track record of their many award-winning travels and film offerings. Yoon Se Ri has been nominated for Best Actress in several awards shows. In addition, his co-star Hyun Bin has successfully starred in dramas including Secret Garden, Rampant, The Negotiation, and others.

The second reason is that the play is presented with an interesting storyline so that the audience doesn’t get tired of seeing it. Of the first scene of concern was the Yoon Se Ri incident that landed in North Korea. Then Captain Ri initially thought that he was a spy. But then Yoon Se Ri tried to escape because he felt he was in an unsafe country.

The third reason is a very different love story of a couple. In terms of background it is clearly different because Yoon Se Ri is a South Korean woman while Captain Ri is a North Korean officer. Then another difference is that Yoon Se Ri is the heir to the business conglomerate of his parents while Captain Ri is the son of a military officer. These background differences apparently led them to get chemistry with each other.

At first Captain Ri wanted to report Yoon Se Ri’s incident, but it turned his back on the intention that it was the Captain who would help Yoon Se Ri. Secretly there are many ways to get back to South Korea despite some failures.
