Have you experienced getting sleepless nights just to finish watching a newly found TV series? It happens that your friend gave you a copy of a Korean television series, you started watching it, got hooked on the characters' stories and before you knew it, you can't stop watching every episode... So in less than three days, you've seen the entire series. That's the story of my life for the past 72 hours. To be honest, I was not expecting that My Love From Another Star would catch my attention. Just when I least expected it, I fell in love with the characters of Cheong Song Yi and Doo Min Joon.
If you are a constant visitor of my blog, you are well aware that I'm not a big fan of korean tv series. Don't get me wrong. It's not that I don't like them but because I find it weird reading the subtitle while hearing the actors speak their native language. Yes, it sure does require some effort to watch this kind of series. One blink and I might miss an important line from the characters. I believe that My Love From Another Star is the exception.
This series is about an alien who landed on Earth in the Joseon Dynasty (ancient time in Korea). Do Min Joon was not able to go back to his planet so he had to live on Earth and wait for "the comet" to come back after 400 years. During the modern era, when he only had three months left on the planet, he met a famous celebrity in the name of Cheong Song Yi. They are the complete opposite of one other. Do Min Joon is a silent, decent and reserved man while Cheong Song Yi is a loud, arrogant and confident woman.
