I loved the idea behind the plot line. The idea of a nearly indestructible alien stranded from his home planet, forced to wait 400 years in order to return to his home planet. However, I think the director could have explored the questions he raised in his drama. Also, the last episode was a TERRIBLE ending. It resolved NOTHING and was just a pile of romantic rubbish.The casting, on the other hand, read more was beautiful. Kim Soo Hyun was perfect.

I started this very confident about it being a masterpiece. To be honest, I was expecting something different since the first episode, but it came out to be very good anyway.
The plot was interesting, he was an alien, she was a famous actress and they were linked by a past 'together'. In the meanwhile an accident to another actress happened, and so we have the main characters involved with a bad read more guy.
So ok, the story is just wow.
However I felt like from the 12 ep on it was lacking in something.
You have basically two main topics in the drama: the romance and the bad guy interfering with the detectives trying to solve the case and so on, but while the romance is well balanced, sometimes you just feel that the other part of the story is NOT going on.
Anyway, it is addicting because in every episode they put something that makes you say "wow, maybe in the next episode something big would happen", or "maybe this thing is related to this and that, we'll see in the next ep.".
The problem is, your doubts are not solved.
For me that was the only bad thing.
Nothing to say about the acting. Everyone was perfect. From Ji Hyun to her fictional brother.

In the end I recommend this, it is well done indeed!

both dramas deal with a supernatural being and finding love between a supernatural being and a human. Both dramas have the mains face obstacles that stand in their way and people who are determined to stop them from being together.
Recommended by so1jhk
In both dramas the female lead is a celebrity who has her own career standing on the edge, while the male lead is an alien who has to live a limited time on the Earth and they both fall in love.

    oh gosh there are so many parts I love about this drama---except the ending.

    1) THE INTRO: have you seen the intro?? It's amazing and I'm surprised by the effort put into the 10 second clip. Do Minjoon is gorgeous in the clip. oh gosh.

    2) ACTING: The main character has become my favorite person because of the actress's amazing skills. Although I didn't think the chemistry was as good as some people make it to be, the love between the two main characters are believable enough to make me CRY for a WHOLE EPISODE.

    3) The humor: I really didn't expect to laugh as much as I did. The script-writers really did a satisfying job on this one. <3

    4) Overall: This story is heartwarming and funny, and will no doubt make you cry every now and then. The premise is interesting, and the jokes that come along with the premise is golden. :D

    yay i finished it. overall it's good but i have to say i love ji hyun here more than soo hyun, maybe his character doesn't appeal to me that much that's why i hesitated to continue. i can't say it is overrated since it hit all the right notes to the majority but i think i'm not included. not a hater though, i just can't bring myself to love this much as others do but i like it :)

    I was very against the idea of watching because all the comments I have read but at the end I give it a try. It was totally a good decision :) I really like it, the last time a drama brought me to tear was scence of a woman.

    lol, funny how this drama reminded me of "Boys Before Flowers". People watched both show and loved it at first, as soon as the episodes were released they would stay up watch it. But when it ends they are like "Overrated, bad drama, boring characters, bad acting,...etc." Maybe what you did not like is the ending then, not the whole show. Some of the people hate it, but somehow give it an 8 or 9.

    I'm not saying this is a masterpiece, but if some one says the acting is bad, go watch "Pretty man" then come talk to me about bad acting.

      i totally agree. i feel like some people are unwilling to admit this show could have been their guilty pleasure. i never took it seriously, i just enjoyed what i was watching.

    I loved this drama. The acting was great too. Though at times, it could have been better but kim so hyun was perfect. He played the character really well. He also nailed the crying scenes. It was a really entertaining drama, different. Though like most Korean dramas, in the middle it got slow and boring.

    I'm starting to love them both! Please create more movies or dramas that still they are the main characters. I still looking for more movies that both of them were in it. I liked the movie "The Thieves" because of them though Soo Hyun only have the supporting role.
