Here's The Guy Who Played Captain Ri's 'Lookalike' Pianist On 'Crash Landing On You'

He's an *actual* pianist IRL!

One of the most memorable moments on Crash Landing On You was the reveal that Yoon Se-Ri had been going back and forth to Switzerland in hopes to run into Captain Ri, as they had promised to each other. And in one particularly heartbreaking moment just before the last episode wrapped up, we see Se-Ri walking along the streets of Switzerland when she suddenly hears a familiar tune being played on the piano. For a brief moment she’s disillusioned to think that the artist performing was Captain Ri, but after taking a few steps forward to see the pianist, it was actually another man.

The pianist is actually See Siang Wong, and he’s *actually* a pianist IRL! On his official Facebook page, he posted several behind the scenes photos from filming Crash Landing On You. He wrote: “After sooo many requests of friends and reactions on Crash Landing On You Korean Drama here are some memorable pics of the film shoot! I was playing a 'lookalike' pianist for superstar Hyun Bin in the last episode .... The show is over now and has reached No. 1, watched by millions all over the world!!! The most fun gig I have ever done as a pianist!!!”

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
