Loved by both fans and critics alike, the K-drama “My Love From the Star” has truly become a full-fledged phenomenon. The success of the fantasy romance series has catapulted both Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun into international superstars as well as cultural icons.
In this epic love story, Kim Soo Hyun plays Do Min Joon, an alien from outer space who lands on Earth during the Chosun Dynasty and takes on a human form. After he loses a human woman that he loved during that era, he becomes cold and distant and tries to keep his distance from lowly humans while he awaits the chance to return to his home planet. But 400 years later, he meets modern-day actress Cheon Song Yi (played by Jun Ji Hyun), and the two fall in love. But is a lasting relationship possible between an alien and a human? Watching this drama will renew your faith in love and make you wish for your own love story that shatters any time-space obstacles!
The series was voted “Korea’s most favorite program” by a landslide in a poll conducted by Gallup Korea in February. The popularity of this show is not confined within the borders of South Korea, however. The drama and its stars enjoy worldwide appeal and have thus earned countless fans in Asia and the Americas. The show’s impact has been so widespread that an American remake is already in development at ABC. But it’s not too late for you to learn what all the craze is about!
