It’s no secret that K-Drama series Crash Landing On You is hugely popular in the Philippines, considering that it’s Netflix‘s number one TV show in the country.
And with the drama’s soaring popularity, Filipinos all over the country couldn’t help but turn to Twitter to announce their undying love (and thirst) for the show’s main lead, Captain Ri Jung Hyeok, a North Korean soldier who accidentally meets a South Korean heiress named Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye Jin) and falls for her.
Here are ten tweets that sum up how exactly Pinoys are pining over Captain Ri.
1. If he’s the one manning the checkpoint stations, you know it’s going to be crowded AF
