1) The reason I watched this :

The main reason I watched this drama is because of the unique story mix , and the ALIEN concept its very rare to find this type of dramas , thats the main reason for me , As for the cast they were not catchy for me , I have just known Kim Soo Hyun for his amazing role in The Moon that Embraces the Sun read more in-which he did an amazing job and showed some promising talents , also Yoo InNa who doesn't know her , MAIN role in a very similar drama named Queen In Hyun's Man , best romantic role she ever played, but I liked more her act in this drama as a second lead, it more suited her rather than being the main actor, overall This drama is highly recommended , plz don't miss it . Unique outstanding story , keeps u on edge not all the time but enough to keep u watching .

2) Storyline/Plot:

*The cinematography is great , but the story is even more great which is one of the strong points of this drama

*Main Genres:

--->Supernatural/Fantasy : The alien concept is just perfect for the story , its one of the main reasons which kept the story going , adding this unique and original romantic and comedic scenes , it added a lot to the story , without it , it would just be another regular K-drama series

--->Comedy: Just few moments which make u really laugh , other are just average

--->Romance: very cute , the chemistry between the 2 main leads is present but not that strong

--->melodrama : very poor , despite the fact its rated as one !!!!

Story: 9/10.

3) Acting/Cast:

*Main Leads : Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun both of them done a really great job , but this is not what amazed me , what amazed me more was how the whole cast members leads to the success of this drama , as for me Its my first time to watch an actor called Jun Ji Hyun after a very long period last thing I remember was her famous role in my sassy girl .. she was good but not that perfect for me. but overall both of them were perfect for the drama.

*Supporting actors : I liked most of them , everyone was averagely perfect ..

*Other characters were Perfect , the cast really did a great job , everyone was suitable for his/her role


--->Romance: one word " Alien Love" , the Alien part added a lot to many scenes especially the second kiss scene make it a unique magical one of a kind scene , chemistry 7.5/10

--->Love Triangle: present but u can't feel it , Actually there was more than one but with no progress or tension , just a simple one surving the main story

Cast: 7/10.
Acting: 7.5/10.

4) The ending: Good one

The ending: 8/10.

*Is the drama memorable: YES

My impression: 8/10.

6) Overall:
Overall: 8/10

This drama has a different story line from all the drama that I've seen. That's what drew me to the drama after reading about the plot. Although it was funny and sweet from the very beginning, it was somehow boring and I didn't continue to watch it for a few weeks. After finishing the drama, I regret not watching it sooner. I cried with the last two episodes seeing how hurt and read more hard it was for her. The ending was unexpected and shocking, but I'm happy it ended the way it did. I would highly recommend this drama to anyone out there who have not seen it yet.

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 am half way through and I am not sure if I should continue. There were some parts I really liked, but I'm not into the romance. I just dont see it.

    Jeon ji hyeon is a comedic gem here. Appreciated the more nuanced performance of kim soo hyun as an alien, but looking forward to him being back in full force in his next project. The villain part of the story is certainly one of the weak points of the drama.

    I read that there is an Indonesian version that wasn't originally licensed until after it aired. I hope someone subs it. It sounds interesting that it follows the same story, so I really want to see if it is just as good as the Korean. ^_^

      No! (^_^)
      When we form an opinion about a drama, we involve our sentiments,our principles of life,the things that we like or approve and the the things that we don't like or approve (like a relationship between a teacher and a student~there are people who won't watch a drama because of this). And because we all different,we have different opinions.
      Sometimes,it happens to me,too. I find a drama that has only bad reviews or that isn't popular and guess what? I begin to watch it and I fall in love with it.And it's so annoying because I can't talk with anyone about my favorite moments.
      And there are dramas that almost everyone loved and I begin it with high expectations...but I realize that I don't like it.It's annoying again because I ask myself : "Is something wrong with me?!" I begin to hate that drama because I feel that it's its fault...
      But it's not the fault of drama and it's not my fault.This is how we are made : to like this and to not like that.What can we do?
      Well,I wish you better luck next time! I hope you'll find a drama that you'll 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.
      and yes x10 to Pretty Man!
