This Pinoy Family Recreated 'Crash Landing On You' Scenes For Their Parents' Anniversary
I think we can all agree on this: One thing that makes Crash Landing On You such an amazing show is that people of all ages—including our titos and titas—can relate to it! I personally watched the show with my mom, waiting for new episodes every weekend during its original run.
Amid lockdown, aka enhanced community quarantine, aside from binge-watching the show for the nth time, there's a family who decided to have a low-cost CLOY-inspired photoshoot!
Meet the Sulit family: They recreated Captain Ri and Se-ri's *first* meeting in the show for their parents' 25th wedding anniversary. In a Facebook album, we see Lynette Sulit, a 54-year-old nurse, and Edwin Sulit, a 55-year-old doctor, with their four children Edflyn, Swift, Kent, and Lyndon, in Crash Lockdown On You: A 25th Anniversary Special. Below are their photos for today's dose of good vibes.
Here's Se-ri trying to reach her employees after the accident:
*Gasps* Remember when Captain Ri pointed his gun at her?
The actual moment she ~crash-landed~ on him:

Here are the four soldiers from Company Five:
And, finally, here's Captain Ri with his "tomato" plant:
In a quick chat with Edflyn over Facebook Messenger, she shared that the whole family loves CLOY! "March 31 was our parents' 25th wedding anniversary, but due to the lockdown, we couldn't go anywhere to celebrate. The idea actually really came from my parents. They decided to just do a fun photo shoot for their anniversary."
They shot the photos in areas around their house in Silang, Cavite. Edflyn adds: "We have quite a spacious garden and our house is near a creek. It was just kind of a 'serendipity moment' that it matched the scenes from CLOY. My mom is quite resourceful, so all the outfits and props were just things found around our house."
How did her parents react to the outpouring support and love for their photos online? "My dad was analyzing the comments, and if it did not mention or have anything related to CLOY, he would laugh about how those people can't relate," Edflyn shares.
"But really, they're just happy that it had an overall positive impact. We're happy that it made a lot of people smile and laugh from reliving the emotions while watching the drama. A lot of people even tagged their friends and families, as well as their parents...As my parents are medical professionals, we just wanted to remember that mental health is also important during this crisis so we wanted to do something that might make people smile...Taking a break and having a little laugh is good for our health!"
Crash Landing On You tells the story of a South Korean heiress (Son Ye Jin) who goes paragliding and accidentally lands in North Korea. There, she meets a soldier (Hyun Bin) who helps her get back to the South and ends up falling in love with her.
The series is currently available for streaming on Netflix. Watch the OG "crash landing" scene here:

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
