Four episodes of 1/2 an hour each, it left me kind of wanting to see how they reconciled but it really was nice to remember those years when one started dating. All the mistakes, the nervousness and the butterflies that never really disappear with the experience. It was a cute story.
This series is really about the romance in a relationship.
Joo Yeon used to be a girl that believed in feelings and love but the years have hardened her. She doesn’t believe in romance in a relationship. She doesn’t have friends, she keeps her relationships in the surface. She is too logical that make her seem cold and unfeeling.
Joo Wan grew up learning about love and feelings from Joo Yeon who is 6 years older. He left with his parents when he was little and he promised her then that he would return. He came back and found a totally different women. Still he helps her find herself back, opening her self to her relationships. He loves her the way she is and now he wants her to love him back.
Se Ryeong won’t let Tae Yoon go. She loves him but he lets her go because of rumors, because she won’t stop being who she is to clear misunderstanding.
Min Jung is in her 30s and is not looking for a serious relationship but now she is pregnant and the father of her child doesn’t know her real name, age and that they are neighbors.
Hee Jae had been in a relationship for years, with no dream of her own. But now that the relationship is over and started dating Woo Young, her friend at work. He opens her mind to discover herself and her dreams.
Each character goes through a transformation and others are headed to a self discovery journey. The story has an open ending: Joo Yeon and Joo Wan are together, Min Jung and the father of her babies are taking things slowly, Hee Jae is leaving for a year and promises Woo Young to come back; while Se Ryeong tells Tae Yoon that she will wait for him to come back to her.
Loved the story about opening up, to let people in: friends and lovers - they make life special.
I still have the marks of tears on my cheeks. I listen to the ost while I write this post. Two opposites that learn about the power of love as they interact and fall for each other. It broke my heart to see them miss each other and hold on to the precious moments when they were able to be together… Do Min Joon fought his way back home and even though, he still struggles to remain, we know he will find a way.
Cheon Song Yi always faithfully waiting for him… She changed a lot… But I think that Do Min Joon changed the most. It took him 400 years to let himself open to love and being close to someone. He had fallen for the girl he saved but that love didn’t get to blossom. And her death made his wall against the world of feelings stronger. Yes, he had Mr. Yang, who was a friend but only after Song Yi melted his defenses was he able to deepen his friendship… Love is a transforming force that he took for granted so it was cruel to have him have to go back to where he came from, which stopped being home, the moment he fell in love.
The story is told in an endearing way. It was so funny and cute to see Do Min Joon get sick every time they kissed. He dreamed about living with her and having a family, but I wonder if they were every able to pass from a kiss…
But it is not just Song Yi and Min Joon’s relationship that stole my heart away. It is also Hee Kyung’s and Se Mi’s situations. They are in love with people that only care for them as friends. They have been in this situation for years and while Hee Kyung has voiced his feelings, Se Mi has had to keep it quiet, locked inside of her heart. At the end we see them going to the awards together so you wonder if their friendship is mended, but they give Song Yi the strength to survive the hardships of having to be without Min Joon.
All the stories connected are warm and heartbreaking at the same time making My Love from Another Star one of my favorite stories.
Facing fears and being transformed by learning to deal with those things that scares the most. Tae Kong Sil is afraid of the ghosts that follow her around requesting her help… Joo Joong Won is afraid of facing the truth of what happened to him 15 years ago… Even Kang Won is willing to face his fears in order to be with the girl he loves… The ghosts are really scary at first glance but most of them have sad stories to tell and are looking for ways to protect those they have left behind… Others are really twisted…
In this story both main characters go through changes. The more time they spend together, the more they help the other blossom: Joong Won helped Tae step out of her hiding place and start living and facing her life… Tae helps Joong Won become more humane and step out of his self-centered attitude.
Each ghost has a story and they all moved me, whether they were spooky, sad or shocking but each story helps the master and his sun to get closer and understand that they are meant to be together.
I didn’t get the chance to see it in the big screen but today I got to finally see it. I always knew this would a difficult story to translate into a film since most of the action happens inside the body of Melanie/Wanderer. It wasn’t bad but they cut all the process in which Wanda became part of the human group in the cave. I don’t know, I feel like the cut somethings that were important in order for the audience to see the change in the population inside cave once they slowly start to accept Wanda and also her relationship with Ian, Jaime and Jared. The story was much more complicated than it looked in the movie. It was okay but it could’ve been better.
Just my opinion.
