Likes: Alien story is hot this year because of Kim Soo Hyun! Can’t get enough of this guy. He needs to do at least 2 dramas in a year!
Of course alien sounds bizarre for a kdrama theme but wait until our handsome alien shows off his power…teleporting seems to be his specialty! But that also includes controlling objects and staying young for hundred of years! Isn’t it impressive ladies?!
I love Chun Song Yi, she’s funny and bubbly! She was most funny whenever she would say something in English! I think she even upstaged Do Min Joon’s sarcastically funny character. In the end I love them both!
Do Min Joon’s interview in between scenes was a nice add up. It gives you that secure feeling that whatever the couple is going through in that very episode, it will turn out alright in the end. Or did it, really?
I love the music! It made the scenes more exciting.
Jeon Ji Hyun is perfect for the role, she was just great! Park Hae Jin is handsome! Well, someone’s got to compete with Kim Soo Hyun! And it was good to see Yoo In Na again after Queen In Hyun’s Man!
Favorite scenes: when he used his power to drag her back flying into his arms and kissed her (it was like wrist-grab alien style), when he froze time to kiss her goodbye, when he overheated after they kissed for the first time, when he teleported and froze time just to delete a text message he didn’t mean to send her (well, he actually meant it, just embarassed to acknowledge), when she got a bit crazy after they broke up, that ET moment with her brother, when he teleported to a deserted place which looked like Jeju and of course that awesome red carpet moment!
I love the ending! If she was perfectly happy so do I.
Dislikes: I just had that feeling that it wasn’t mean to be 21 episode long. It got a bit draggy towards the end. Were they trying to stretch it because of its popularity? They really shouldn’t do that.
I want more of Kim Soo Hyun! This was more of a KSH teaser.
This drama made it to top 10 in 2013. Watch video…
