An otherworldly good looks with his literally exceptional splendor, Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) a disbelieving alien because of his human physical form. After his crash landing on Earth 400 years ago, Min Joon has diligently observed humans for centuries, ultimately coming to cynical conclusions. He landed 400 years ago in the Joseon Dynasty, who then falls in love with a top actress in the modern period. On top of being a super babe and a well-known model, Min Joon’s got improved vision, hearing and alertness — all the more reason to consider that he’s more advanced compare to everyone on Earth. That is, until he pursues the beautiful actress Cheon Song Yi (Gianna Jun) for a romance out of this world.
Do Min-joon is an extraterrestrial being that landed on Earth during the Joseon Dynasty in the year 1609. He is trapped on earth for the next four centuries because his spaceship was wrecked. He possesses a real-like look, superior physical abilities including his senses, his sight, hearing, speed, and world-weary view about human beings. He then meets a young girl whom he kept from death, but later on and turned out she gives her life upon saving him.
As decade flies by, Min-joon is forced to take on an innovative characteristics and identity every ten years, as his human form by no means of ages.
In the present modern time, he works as a college professor and discover out that due to a comet approaching in near three months, he will be able to go back to his home planet. In the period in-between the present time he unintentionally meets the famous actress Cheon Song-yi, one of the biggest stars in Korea, when she moves in next door to his luxurious apartment unit and also falls out to be attending his classes at college. Song-yi is an intolerable brat, unconstrained attention seeker; someone who became a top star in her teens and in no way she learned how to live a normal life. While on the run Min-joon finds out that Song-yi seem to be like the little girl he fell in love during the Joseon era. He tries to avoid himself away from her, as he aims to leave the planet.
On the other hand, Song-yi gets invovled in the unsafe game of Lee Jae-kyung, the elder brother of Hwi-kyung, who has been her friend ever since middle school and who is in love with her. As Jae-kyung keeping secretly Song-yi, Min-joon will find himself saving her many times and after a while the neighbors fall on each other. But Jae-kyung turns out to be much more harmful than Min-joon, he strangely unable to control above his superpowers, making his only best friend, Lawyer Jang concerned about his life.
Chun Song Yi almost had everything: In spite of her not so good image, as an airhead and a top actress. She’s got an adorable best friend, well-off and a decent chaebol heir who very much wants to tie the knot with her. But everything begins to be complicated when she’s drawn in a apprehensive death, recalling Song Yi that her life wasn’t so faultless. Then a dreamy next door neighbor came, a younger man who happens to be from outside of the world with extraordinary set of abilities that include teleportation and freezing time—Song Yi finally finds true connection. There, her real troubles begin.
The drama never fails to extract the essential conflict that defines the finale episode. During Min-joon’s departure and the emotional heartbreak that go after Song-I. Basically, all of the emotional force was driven on making a convincing pitch to the viewer that are expecting that this drama really is going to conclude on a sad note- that Min-joon and Song-I will be everlastingly at odds and will be forever separated. The entire episode is very glum.
The intrusive ending that finally resolves this question permanently leaves something to be most wanted. The drama that has used up so much energy steering to its science fiction elements phases, in the last piece, to pull some science out of nowhere to determine the storyline. There was plenty of room in this drama for actually in sci-fi elements, logical deductions, and serious emotional exploration and preparation for separation anxiety. Subtitles were also presented at the bottom verifying the latest techno fact of the drama, virtually matching to the blurbs from earlier part in the drama where Min-joon was discussing some medical terms.
This drama has gone through so far-off for the sake of the Song-I and Min-joon pairing; this isn’t really going to be that much more of a leap. But in the end it was a good team-up hence there something lacking that made it more so controversial to watch.
The controversial ending of “My Love from the Stars” forms many debates, but there is no evidence to be arguing that the milestone reach 1 billion hits as Chinese viewers recorded on video-sharing sites strongly reveal that this Korean-Drama was a big hit in China. Not only that My Love From The Star has accomplished with an unexpected happy ending, but the trend for the South Korean Drama television strike continues in China, across-the-board sectors from fashion mania to finance world.
