I usually shy away from dramas which female leads are older than the male leads especially when it's obvious on their looks. I don't know why but that is not just my cup of tea. That is why even when i heard so many good feedback about YWCS i chose not to watch it. But boy, how i thank my lucky star that i gave this drama a chance and i did read more not regret doing so! Otherwise i would never find out the reason why they have to choose much younger male lead and what an awesome reason that was! i don't really get starstruck with korean actors but kim soo hyun left a tremendous impact on me. he's so fly!
Jeon Ji Hyeon played her role superbly. how many times i laughed in most of her scenes. she has so many unpredictable hilarious scenes! although she really looks mature in her role, i was by NO means bothered by it because she was perfect for that role.
now about the drama, although i find it a little bit dragging, all in all it was exceptional. if i"m going to watch it again, i will just skip on the scenes they were not in.

Love it and i love "My Destiny" their ost.

I'm gonna miss this drama!

When I started this drama, the entire cast except for Yoo In Naa was 'alien' to me, heh. I noticed there was a big hype over Kim Soo Hyun and I've even read an article that said Jeon Ji Hyeon has made her big comback with this role after some 14 years. The premise seemed intriguing, the reviews practically tugged at your sleeves to just go ahead and watch it already, and read more having done so, here's my little review.

For those who love the original Star Trek series, they will notice a similarity between Mister Spock and the main fella, with all of these quite troublesome feelings you get because Do Min Joon has different lifespan from everyone else and you start watching this show knowing how many people he'll lose down the road. Which is very terrifying to think about and might make it hard to watch in later episodes. That aside, don't worry, he is nothing like Mister Spock because he has executed his own character well, and frankly, he made his extraterrestial background very visible throughout the series. On the other side, Chun Song Yi was hilarious. I think she might be the most fun female lead in any series that I've seen so far, because she's not afraid of expressing herself fully in any given scene. As a couple, they complement each other in every sense, their chemistry is completely functional and the comedy relief scenes are up to the task in most parts.

Jeon Ji Hyeon and Kim Soo Hyun have done very well in their roles, I think that KSH is growing to be a great actor and I'm looking forward to both their new dramas/movies. From the other cast, Lee Jae Kyung was an incredible character up until last few episodes, I hate how small they made him in the end, he had the skills to pull off an entirely different, more impactful, lasting version of himself. I also liked Oh Sang Jin as he reminded me of classy old detectives and he was very cute while doing so.

Music is okay, nothing too memorable but nothing too awful either, the main ost is very heartfelt and nice to listen to, and the overall musical background has been timed well with the scenes.

As for the rewatch value, it's definitely a drama I'd watch again after some time, it has all the needed elements for it. However, I'm not a fan of overly angsty plots so this takes quite the score from the rewatching for me.

I loved this drama. There was an abundance of romance all around, bittersweet chunks that left the tissues wet, hilarious parts where I would rewind just to see them again. I watched the last few episodes slowly just to prolong the experience, which serves to show how enjoyable it was to watch. However, the score is 8.5 because of the immense angst toll from the second part, it completely faded out everything else. I also disliked how DMJ was tasking everyone with protecting CSY! In last two episodes it made me very irritated how jumpy the others were around her, she's a woman of her own, for cat's sake! And Lee Hui Kyung, you'll never move on? It's been twenty years man, come on! But aside from these two things, I liked the ending. I find that it was the most proper way of saying goodbye to this drama.

Recommended.

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.

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.

    I was tried opposing watching this drama so bad for so long and in the end I gave up...and now I'm absolutely loving it. It was the same situation as Secret Garden - I didn't want to watch it and it turned out to be my all time fave.

    I see a lot of mixed comments here; I'll give my opinion: I've never seen a drama like this, for me it was very enjoyable and sweet and funny, the story was good at first I just wanted to see more, at times I felt like watching 10 episodes in a row or just one so it didn't end fast haha; but I expected a better ending (it felt a little rushed) but that doesn't mean I think the end was bad...
    Overall: I'll definitely watch this again

    Finally picked it up, it wasn't quite what I expected. I enjoyed the concept and the acting, but it's.. I don't know, the ending felt weird. I give it 6.5/10.

    Totally lived up to the hype. So glad I finally decided to watch it. I wish I had watched it while it was still ongoing! I'm now a huge fan of Jeon Ji Hyun--her acting was phenomenal! The growth of her character was remarkable. Kudos to her and the writers.

    I wasn't feeling the romance until a few episodes before the ending, but by the end I just loved it. I have very few complaints about this drama, so a 10/10 it is. ;)
