I bet many of you will know this drama “My love from the star”. If you do not know this drama, it’s high time for you to start watching right now.
Do Min-joon acted by Kim Soo-hyun is an alien that landed on Earth during the Joseon Dynasty. As his spaceship is broken, he is stranded on the planet for the next four centuries. He possesses a near-perfect appearance, enhanced physical abilities involving his vision, hearing and speed, and a cynical, jaded view regarding human beings. He meets a young girl whom he saves from death during the Josean Dynasty, but later on she gives her life saving him.
As time goes by, Min-joon is forced to take on a new identity every ten years, as his human appearance never ages.
At present he works as a college professor and finds out that due to a comet coming in three months, he will be able to return to his home planet. In the meantime he accidentally meets famous actress Cheon Song-yi, the biggest Hallyu star in Korea, when she moves in next door to his luxurious apartment and also turns out to be his student.
Cheon Song-yi acted by Jun Ji-hyun is a top Hallyu actress star who is very blunt and believes that she is every man’s type. As Min-joon saved her a few times, she started to fall in love with him. Initially, she was rejected by Min-joon as he was returning to his planet. However, Min-joon also like her and they begin a relationship. She lost her popularity after she was suspected in causing Han Yoo-ra’s suicide. She rose to fame after the nation knew the truth behind Yoo-ra’s incident.
Lee Hwi-kyung acted by Park Hae-jin like Song-yi for 12 years ever since they were students. He self-claimed that he is Song-yi’s boyfriend. He believes one day she will love him, but decides to back down for a while, supporting her through thick and thin as a true friend. He even wanted to set up one person agency for Song-yi after the Han Yoo-ra’s incident.
Yoo Se-mi acted by Yoo In-na ,a girl Song-yi saw as a friend. Underneath her sweet smile, she is actually very envious of Song-yi and has had a crush on Hwi-kyung for a long time. She later becomes famous after Song-yi’s fall from the entertainment industry.
This drama gained alot from love from people all around the world. Firstly, the story plot is very “fresh”. I have never watch any drama having an alien living in the planet. Secondly, Song-yi’s personality. I really like the part when she said “oops, sawrry”. It is very funny. Despite wanting to lose wight, her favourite combi is having fried chicken with beer. Lastly, Min-joon’s special ability. It’s very fascinating to see his ability in action especially the part when he freeze the time to kiss Song-yi after rejecting her.
