Let’s throwback to the cute couple’s alien-human romance: Kim Soo-hyun and Jun Ji-hyun in My Love From the Star!
Kim Soo-hyun and Jun Ji-hyun’s Chemistry in My Love From the Star
Do Min-joon is an alien who has lived on Earth for a hundred years, he is looking for a way to go back to his planet. While waiting, he lives a successful life as a human. Since he can’t age, he uses various identities as a disguise. In the last moments of his life on Earth, he suddenly meets a woman who makes his heart race. The unpredictable Cheon Song-yi, a celebrity who has all the spotlight on her, but is actually lonely inside.
Acting as Do Min-joon, we can finally see the charm and the ‘coolness’ of Kim Soo-hyun, even though in the previous dramas he starred in he played the good guy such as in Dream High or The Moon Embracing the Sun. He acted really well as an alien who hides his identity as a professor in a university.
Since he has lived alone for a reaaally long time on Earth, he has become rich and lives in a wealthy apartment next to a celebrity, Cheon Song-yi.
Even though Cheon Song-yi is a popular and problematic celebrity who has a lot of scandals around her, Do Min-joon doesn’t really care about her. This causes Cheon Song-yi, who has a star syndrome, to become upset. Well, then again, even though she is a superstar, she lives a miserable life inside. And the coming of Do Min-joon to her life suddenly makes a change.
Due to the opposite characters of Do Min-joon and Cheon Song-yi, they tend to throw hate words at each other at the beginning of their meetings. However, their relationship, which starts out with a lot of arguments, slowly begins changing into a romantic relationship.
It all starts with Do Min-joon and Cheon Song-yi’s first kiss, which is accidental when Do Min-joon was about to help Cheon Song-yi.
Both of them who were in denial at first, slowly admit their feelings for each other. Cheon Song-yi who has a lot of hate towards her since she is a superstar with a big name gets help from Do Min-joon. Well, her friends and family too, but Do Min-joon who makes her fall in love makes a lot of impact.
Cheon Song-yi who is actually a clumsy one, has a bad temper, and always causes trouble, starts to change little by little.
