South Korean dramas do not shy away from dropping references in their shows. From BTS to IU and even plugging the promotion of their own shows (we are talking about tvN's ongoing drama It's Okay To Not Be Okay), there are subtle references that get fans excited. However, Crash Landing On You crossed boundaries to give a subtle nod to an Indian film in episode 5. For the unversed, the Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin starrer follows the journey of a military officer from North Korea (Ri Jeong Hyeok) and a citizen from South Korea (Yoon Se Ri). 

Se Ri ends up crossing borders after her paragliding expedition goes wrong and meets Captain Ri. Over the course of episodes, they try to find her way back to South Korea. On their journey, they find themselves on a train. As they journey to finding a way to help Se Ri obtain a passport and go back home, their journey comes to a standstill when the train stops due to a power cut. 

As a result, the lead characters find themselves under the sky, beside a bonfire. During their conversation about their lives, Se Ri recalls an "Indian proverb" that goes, "Sometimes, the wrong train takes you to the right station." For those who did not get the reference immediately, Se Ri used the dialogue that appeared in Irrfan Khan's The Lunchbox. The original dialogue reads, "Kabhi kabhi galat train bhi sahi jagah pahucha deti hai." It appears in the movie's trailer as well. Check it out below: 

This isn't the first time this year that we spotted an Indian-Korean connection. A few months ago, BTS singer Jimin confessed he watched Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots. Have you watched Crash Landing On You? Let us know your review in the comments below.

CLOY is my first k-drama and now I am a Hyun Bin fanatic. I've watched all of his previous works and he is a very versatile actor and the most handsome Korean actor for a lot of people.

I watched it many times. I fell in love with the story which is very light but full of unspoken feelings of love between the actors. Son ye jin executes her character excellently and she is good in expressing multiple emotions in a scene. Her timing is always good. She actually rubs it in to her co-actors. The chemistry of hyun bin and son ye jin is so electrifyingly perfect. The eyes of hyun bin speaks a lot of his real emotions for ye jin. I sense that the 2 are in a very mature relationship. Hyun bin has matured a lot as an actor and as a person too. I wish them both good luck and happiness. Saranghae.

OMG!!.. I’m never really in to love drama, but all of the people that are close to me have watched this drama & still watching it over & over again for how many times. Now that I have watched the whole 16 Episode, IT’S THE BEST LOVE DRAMA EVER. And I’m watching it again!!.. Good job guys. I wouldn’t be surprise that they will make more of this together.

So what if CLOY used an Indian proverb? The mere fact that the movie made a North Korean soldier its protagonist means they can do anything under the sun. It's a good proverb which I can personally relate to as a traveller. I often rode the wrong train, paid additional amount, but I appreciate where I ended up. And I don't get the intention of this article.
