The Korean drama "My Love from Another Star" had its first episode in South Korea last December 18, 2014 and ended early this year, February 27.

Kim So Hyun???

I like watching Korean dramas because of the actors and actresses. If I don't like any of the main characters in it, I usually don't watch that drama... Well, unless the story is really really really good! hoho!

For me, Kim So Hyun is one of the best actors in Korea when it comes to acting and crying. Because my students kept on telling me about his latest drama, which was also shown here in the Philippines, I tried watching it last April this year. At first, I didn't like it because I'm not into sad-ending dramas. You know, an alien and a human? How could it be possible? To think that it's also a Korean drama. But... I couldn't stop watching it the moment I started. hahaha!

My Love from Another Star

Jeon Ji Hyun as Cheon Song Yi
Kim So Hyun as Do Min Joon
Park Hae Jin as Lee Hwi Kyung
Yoo In Na as Yoo Se Mi

Cheon Song Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun) is a very famous Hallyu star. She’s tall, pretty, and sexy. She can also act well, of course. Because of that, she believes that she’s every man’s fantasy. She’s very self-confident and she once claims that she’s a goddess, a fifteen-second goddess who can capture her audiences’ heart in just fifteen seconds of watching her. All goes exactly what she thinks of until she meets a very cold and mysterious being, Do Min Joon (Kim So Hyun). Do Min Joon is an alien who lives an isolated life after losing a special girl 300 years ago, during the Joseon Dynasty. When he meets Cheon Song Yi, slowly he realizes that she looks like that special girl and begins to develop feelings for her. Because his time on Earth is nearly over and he is so afraid to hurt her feelings, he almost gives her up to her childhood friend, Lee Hwi Kyung (Park Hae Jin). Lee Hwi Kyung loves Cheon Song Yi since childhood and he’s ready to do everything for her to be safe and happy. He also believes that one day, he’ll have Cheon Song Yi’s heart. Like Lee Hwi Kyung, Yoo Se Mi (Yoo In Na) loves a person who doesn’t see her as a partner but as a friend. She’s also a friend of Cheon Song Yi since young but actually envious of the latter.

My Say?

It’s one of my most favorite Korean fantasy dramas! The story is so unique and plots can’t be predicted. It made me laugh a lot, cry at times, and get crazy the whole time I was watching it.

I like the way Jeon Ji Hyun acts especially in the scenes she’s portraying the stupid side of Cheon Song Yi. She's also good in being so proud and over-confident. Hahahahaha! How about Kim So Hyun? Well, I know that he’s a very good actor. I like his acting from the very first time I saw him in The Moon Embracing The Sun. In this fantasy/comedy drama, I realized that he’s better when he’s acting cold and distant. It’s also funny when he’s portraying an innocent look of Do Min Joon. It makes me smile everytime I remember it.

I just hope to meet someone like him in person, if he actually exists! Hihi!

After watching this drama, I felt like I want to meet an alien and try having a romantic relationship. Hoho! Of course, only if he’s like Do Min Joon!!!
