I have to say I really enjoyed this drama, the story kept me interested. The chemistry between the actors was great, not once was I pulled out of the story because their chemistry or interaction felt awkward. There are some genuinely funny moments and a couple of really tense moments too. I really liked the ending and really didn't feel it was predictable at all

First off, i know this drama is still on going but i thought i should write out a helpful review for those who are uncertain to watch this. i find that most reviews don't really help me so i find my drama's by simply watching the first episode of everything - but we all know this is losing precious time.

I gave the STORY a 10 because of it's originality. sure there read more have been other Kdrama's out there about Aliens (or not) but the drama revolves around so much more than his story. the story is more a slice of life (although a very dramatic life) of an Alien who stumbled on earth and how he copes with it.

I love the combination of detective, suspense, romance and humor. It's a very good balance all in all. I, myself am mostly not interested in detective stories because it tends to jsut be so complicated, but trust me, it's really good and not difficult to follow (?^O^?)

now for the ACTING and that cast: a well deserved 10. at first i was unsure about the main actress, but she does her role in a very convincing manner. everyone takes their character and gives it extra dimension. the scary people are genuinly scary ass mothertruckers and the serious people .. well they are serious (but you know their all adorable deep inside!).

quickly going over the MUSIC and REWATCH VALUE:
like all drama's out there they like to have one song they repeat over and over untill your ears bleed and you nearly can't take it anymore. this is about 20% less of that (thank god).
the songs change up here and there and the background music sets the atmosphere rather well.

i put the rewatch value at 6, this is biased since i don't like the rewatch in the first place since i remember everything that happens, and this annoys me more than you can imagine.

however, i think it should be considerably low due to the fact that, hey it's a detective story. if you know who did it, and why and whatnot, you kind of know the entire plot and i can't imagine you going through another 20 episodes of people not knowing what you know.


OVERALL. a very enjoyable drama to watch as it has made me laugh tears more than once, (also with the sad scenes mind you because they're so silly) and i can't really point out anything that is terrible with this drama ??´???

hope this helped you further even though it was an immense review!

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.

    the plot description lured me in but it was Jeon Ji Hyeon and her acting that made me stay, it was a pleasure to watch her

    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. ^_^

    having different opinion from majority on this drama is called hater?

      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 :)
