The Backstory

While Seo Dan is a department store heiress, her true passion is music. However, because of her status and standing, she cannot pursue her dreams as a musician. After hearing a cellist at a concert while attending college, she quickly falls in love with it. On that same day, however, young Dan also meets Jeong-hyeok (Jung Jae-young), who becomes her fiancé by an arranged marriage between their parents. As a couple during dating days in college and later after marriage, Jeong-hyeok realizes that he has fallen out of love with Seo Dan because of his feelings for another woman but is still committed to his wedding vows until they graduate from college.

Meet the Character

Seo Dan, also known as Seo Ji-hye is a North Korean heiress and aspiring cellist who is also Ri Jeong-hyeok’s fiancée through an affianced marriage arranged by their parents. While she has been infatuated with Jeong-hyeok since they were children, she was discouraged from acting upon it due to social rank differences between them.

The What If Question

It is actually a common question among historical drama lovers. Is it possible that Park Seo-yeon, who was casted as Seo Dan, and boy band EXO’s leader Kai could be dating? If so, it would be great to see how they act as a couple in their love story. The ‘What if’ question is indeed an exciting one for fans. It has led to various types of theories about EXO’s Kai being casted for ‘Crash Landing on You’. Even though some are thinking that Kai might be replaced by another member of EXO after failing to sign up with SM Entertainment, but others still hold faith.

Park Seo-yeon Play as young Dan

An heiress to a large department store conglomerate who is also engaged to marry Ri Jeong-hyeok. She is from Pyongyang and has lived in Switzerland for 10 years after defecting from North Korea, but her father’s sudden death brings her back to South Korea. Although she misses the foreign lifestyle, she tries her best to adapt to South Korean life as she hopes that it will bring about a chance for reunification of both Koreas. She has been infatuated with Jeong-hyeok since childhood as they used to be playmates when they were younger and are engaged through an arranged marriage between their parents’ wishes, but due to misunderstandings while they were still young, their relationship was not known until now.

Personality Traits

There are a lot of characters that she has relationship with, but her main relationship is with Jeong-hyeok. She first meets him in his childhood and sees him as a playmate because they were both born into wealthy families. Her father got to know Jeong-hyeok’s mother and conspired with her to bring them together through an arranged marriage between their children, as he thought it would make good political sense. Seo-Dan and Jeong-hyeok’s father were friends when they were growing up so he was supportive of it.

Decision Making Ability

Park Seo-yeon’s performance as a music student left an impression on me. As I watched her perform cello pieces that she was truly passionate about, I could tell how much time and effort she put into perfecting her craft. She also appeared to have a good head for business when she taught some of the other students. For example, when Park Seo-yeon had an opportunity to earn $15 an hour as a cellist, she instead chose to play music at her friend Seo Ji-hye’s fashion show where they were each paid $100, but worked no more than two hours. From that moment forward, I knew that Park Seo-yeon was capable of making sound decisions and creating opportunities for herself while maintaining high standards.

Fear of Failure or Public Outcry

From a young age, Seo Dan was groomed to one day take over her father’s company. As she grew older, it became evident that she was not only business-minded and intelligent, but also possessed a natural aptitude for music as well as a deep love of it. Unfortunately, due to political issues between South Korea and its northern neighbor, Seo Dan’s wealthy family would have to leave everything behind for fear of government reprisal. Her eventual marriage with Jeong-hyeok would be part of an affianced deal that her father arranged with his potential South Korean business partner years before.

Role in the Drama

Seo Dan plays a supporting role as a love interest to Jeong-hyeok. She is portrayed as being very dutiful and obedient, more so than Hae-young, but she is not easily swayed by love. She helps Jeong-hyeok escape from China by taking him to her home country of North Korea, but when she discovers that Jeong-hyeok has feelings for Hae-young she decides to leave with him and does not return. Seo Da playes a small part in episode 1 where young Seodam meets Jang Hyun’s character for the first time during one of his concert performances.

Views on the Characters and Relationships

She can do well with her strict appearance, her beautiful appearance and her unique appearance. Seo Ji-hye and Park Seo-yeon are very good friends at school which makes it easy for them to act together because they already know each other.

Relationship With Other Characters in the Storyline

The Beautiful Seo Dan is engaged to Ri Jeong-hyeok and had been best friends with another women named Park Seo-yeon. They are both best friends, but have their own independent lives outside of each other. Seo Ji-hye who plays as Seo Dan is a talented cellist who wants to travel abroad to study music. Throughout her life, she had been very close with her mother, but did not have a good relationship with her father, who seems to care more about having political power than being a parent.
