Ok so I just finished watching episode 7 from My Love From Another Star and let me tell you it’s one hell of a cliffhanger. So far I’m really enjoying this drama. Although the whole alien thing isn’t a new concept, it is a new concept (that I’ve seen) to kdrama.
With that being said I really wanted to talk about this drama so far…but I didn’t want to do a post for each episode (as that would take forever!) so I’m just doing one up until episode 7 and as the drama airs I’ll do one for each episode.
So let’s start from the beginning. Within the first couple of episodes they show the personality of the main female lead (Cheon Song Yi). To be honest at first I was kind of annoyed at the personality they gave her. They made her a conceited and stupid celebrity. I can deal with the conceited part as there are many characters like that in kdrama but having the lead be dumb really gets on my nerves. But as I continued to watch it started to grow on me. I now find her character funny and cute at times. I especially love when she busts out her English. Her pronunciation is hilarious. Oh and can’t forget her funny and random moments lol
Another thing I love about her character is that they made her somewhat of a bitch. I absolutely love when they do this. I can’t stand when they make the lead females weak and scared of everyone. Cheon Song Yi is the complete opposite, she stands her ground and doesn’t take crap from anyone. Yay for bitchiness:)
Ok so lets talk about the alien in this drama now: Do Min Joon. He’s an alien that has been on earth for 400 years and his time to leave is coming up. So being that he’s so old of course they are going to have flashbacks of him in historical times. That’s where my problem with this drama begins. I personally don’t care for joseon or any type of historical dramas really. They bore me to death. But that’s not anything specifically wrong with it, it’s just my personal opinion.
Anyways back to our alien. Mmm what more can I say other than him being absolutely gorgeous! I mean just look at him!
Not bad for a 400 year old alien right?;)
Another nice piece of eye candy in this drama is the second male lead Lee Hee Kyung.
His character is just so cute. Completely love struck and obsessed with Cheon Song Yi since they were young this man pursues her in the midst of being rejected over and over. The poor guy I just feel like giving him a hug:( Not looking forward to seeing him being rejected for good:/
And then we have the frenemy Yoo Se Mi. She was Cheon Song Yi’s bestfriend up until the last couple episodes. Always by her side and overlooked as an actress she has grown tired of playing sidekick and not getting the spot light she deserves. Although many people hate her now that she’s taken Cheon Song Yi’s spot I can understand her character. I think she was a genuine friend of Song Yi’s up until her mom brainwashed her into thinking Song Yi never considered her a friend. The only thing she shouldn’t have done was to lie about her mom getting hurt but now that everything is in the open of course she is only going to get worse from here on out.
Oh can’t forget our main villain Lee Jae Kyung. Dun Dun Dun!!! One of the creepiest villians I’ve seen in a while by far. And I’m not talking about his looks here people. The creepiness I’m talking about is that he’s a murderer who volunteers at animal shelters??? I mean come on that just screams psycho! When they first showed his character he looked so nice and when he said he wanted to be a vet just like I used to I was just like ommo! I’m going to love this character! 🙂 That is until they cued the evil music on him and he turned into this -_-
Why did they have to have him volunteer at an animal shelter?? Now all I see him doing is going around murdering innocent puppies!:(
Ok enough with the characters. I want to talk about the actual story now. As of this point we have everyone and their mother hate Cheon Song Yi because she is blamed for the death of another actress. The whole thing is a little ridiculous to me. I mean come on, how do you blame the death on someone who was just mean to her? It’s not like she killed her herself, but of course this is typical in kdrama. So with this situation Cheon Song Yi loses all her roles and sponsorships. She’s now being a bum at her house and our alien Do Min Joon is now acting like her bodyguard/manager. He has grown to like her and is now using his super alien powers to save her in everyway possible. So far he has stopped time and saved her drunk ass from falling overboard, used his super speed to save her from being killed by a falling fish bowl, and for our current cliffhanger has now used teleportation (yeah I said teleportation) to save Song Yi from driving off a cliff. Although I find his superpowers cliché and overused, it is still cool to see them in action.
Can’t wait to see the next episode! Let me know what comments you have and share your opinions in the comments below:)
