If you want to, and even if you don’t, things are bound to happen.
Earthlings call it as FATE. – Do Min Joon

My Love from the Star

My Love from the Star Synopsis: Do Min Joon is an alien in human form who came to Earth in 1600, and by fate, met young lady Seo Yi Hwa.

You Who Came From The Stars is a perfect blend of romance, comedy, and melodrama. A very fun and likable romantic comedy.

Every single cast in this drama portrayed their character very well. Park Hae Jin and Yoo In Na as well as the other characters were good. Jun Ji Hyun is an absolute delight. Ahn Jae Hyun’s character was so cute and the bromance with Do Min Joon was great.

The chemistry of the leads played a big part of why their tandem worked.

Kim Soo Hyun is one of the few actors who can move me with his crying. He did a great job in this drama and I’ve always admired his acting.

The music is nice. My favorite is My Destiny by Lyn.

My Overall Rating – 8.5/10 (I really enjoyed this drama and I highly recommend everyone to watch this! I would definitely say it is a drama that is worth watching.)


People live really dilligently even though they know they’re going to die. Even though they know they will break up at some point, when they love, they love like there’s no tomorrow. These childish beings are exactly what people are. Things will get better as time passes. It could even become as if it never happened. But, although the future is important, isn’t the present just as important?

Do you know why life is interesting? It’s interesting because you don’t know what’s ahead of you.

When there’s no love, how can a story have a happy ending?

Open your heart. Someone will come, someone will come for you. But first, you have to open your heart.

Do you know what the worst kind of love triangle is? The triangle with the girl in the man’s memory. If she existed in real life, I could find out who she is. I could go fight her face-to-face. But if she locked away in your memory, how could I beat her?
