Feb 10,2020
Actor Choi Ji-woo made a cameo appearance on the popular drama series “Crash Landing on You” on tvN in an episode that aired Saturday.

Choi played herself when she appeared on episode 13 and met North Korean soldier Kim Joo-muk, who has a huge fan crush on Choi and has her key lines memorized from the 2003 drama “Stairway to Heaven.” Kim is played by Yoo Soo-bin.

Choi tells Kim that Yoon Se-ri, played by Son Ye-jin, asked her for the favor to meet up with him, and the two playfully recite lines from “Stairway to Heaven.”

The producers of “Crash Landing on You” asked Choi to appear as a cameo, an offer she gladly accepted, according to her agency.

“I am thankful for the offer to take part in such a great piece,” she told the producers, according to her agency. “I am one of the big fans of the drama.”

“Stairway to Heaven” is one of the most-watched South Korean dramas in North Korea, in addition to other favorites like “Autumn in My Heart” and “Winter Sonata,” which also stars Choi.

Choi is pregnant with her first child. She got married to a non-celebrity in 2018.
