There are many names for this drama, ‘My Love From the Star’, ‘You Whom Came From the Stars’, etc, but they all mean the same drama. Starring Kim Soo Hyun, Jun Ji Hyun, Park Jae Jin, Yoo In Na and other casts, the drama has been the new sensation after ‘The Heirs’ drama.
Do Min-joon is an alien that landed on Earth in the year 1609 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, 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.
In the 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 attending his classes at college. Song-yi is an obnoxious, entitled attention seeker, someone who became a top star in her teens and never learned how to live a normal life. She drinks like a fish, swears like a sailor and does whatever she wants. Min-joon finds out that Song-yi looks like the young girl he fell in love with in the Joseon era. He tries to keep himself away from her, as he needs to leave the planet.
However, Song-yi gets entangled in the dangerous game of Lee Jae-kyung, the elder brother of Hwi-kyung, who has been her friend since middle school and is in love with her. As Jae-kyung tries to silence Song-yi, Min-joon finds himself saving her multiple times and eventually the neighbours fall for each other. But Jae-kyung turns out to be much more dangerous than Min-joon suspected and he mysteriously also starts to lose control over his superpowers, making his only friend and confindant, Lawyer Jang worried about his life and return to space.

Well, I personally feel that this drama craze is about firstly, the casts. Kim Soo Hyun, is a really charming person I would say. I not a fan of him, but I’ve saw pictures, gifs, videos, fan moments about him being a dork even though he is really good looking. One example will be his appearance in Running Man Episode 147 with Lee Hyun Woo. He’s quite a ‘Black Hole’ despite his tactics, fast running etc. Jun Ji Hyun who made her small screen comeback after 14 years also wow-ed viewers, as she is already 33 this year and yet her skin is still so flawless! Known for her romantic comedy, My Sassy Girl (2001), one of the highest grossing Korean comedies of all time, viewers are jealous with her ‘never-aging-skin’.
As the drama is about to end, viewers are getting more excited and more curious about the final episode. How will the drama end? Will it be a happy ending? Or will be it a sad one? Or even an open ending? Below are some possible endings that viewers have came up with, which one do you prefer?
1. Min Joon decide to stay on Earth with Song Yl to start a family. He lose his supernatural powers and will grow old with Song Yl and family on Earth.
2. Both Min Joon and Song Yl leave Earth together and start their family on Min Joon’s planet. They start a family with several kids and after a few years, their youngest kid went to Earth and met a young lady. (And the story starts all over again)
3. Min Joon decides to leave Song Yl alone on Earth and decides to forget all about her. In the end, Song Yl will marry Hwi Kyung.
These are some possible endings and I personally think that ending 2 is the best. As in, I would love to see their kids and how do they look like. (oops) Share your thoughts with us at the poll below!
