However, Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin mainly achieved achievements in favor of popularity, instead of acting. Crash Landing on You itself only holds awards for popularity, not for content. Therefore, the really impressive achievements in this year’s television segment did not belong to Crash Landing on You with Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin.
