This drama had two stories; the Cheong Song Yi~Do Min Joon love story and the Lee Jae Kyung crime story. One of them I liked, the other not so much.

The story I liked:

You would expect me to like the love story, right? But that's not the one I liked. The only reason why I saw this drama to the end was because of Jae Kyung's story. His character fascinated me read more from the beginning. And parts relating to his story were the only ones that didn't bore me.

Jae Kyung was so creepy and Shin Sung Rok played him so well! I loved the detective (Se Mi's brother)! The actor played him very well and this whole story was just so interesting to watch!

*Minor spoilers ahead*
I'm so glad that the writer used the "Monsters are born" theme rather than the "Monsters are created" one. I really wanted Jae Kyung to be evil. 'No guilt for my actions' kind of evil. He was already scary and all through the drama I kept wishing that they wouldn't justify his actions by saying that some tragic accident made him like this. So I was glad that this went the way I wanted to.
*End of spoiler*

I only wish this story would have been dealt with more. That there would have been more of this story in the drama. But that wasn't possible because the main story was the love story...

The story that was meh:

I should have liked the love story... The acting was amazing and I really liked the characters as well. I felt really guilty for yawning through Song Yi-Min Joon romantic scenes. But they bored me. I think maybe that was more my fault than their's... There were some scenes that I liked though. The beginning scenes were funny and cute. You know, before they swore their undying love for each other. The kiss scenes were pretty good too. But I got really bored with them in the second half of the drama.

I wish they would've showed how Do Min Joon's planet was. At least given a little more detail...

Other things I liked:

I loved Song Yi's brother! I want a whole drama with him as the main character! At first he was mysterious, then he became cute and I really loved him! What I can't believe is that he, who was I think about 18 years old, was played by a 26 year-old guy! And it didn't even show (unlike Lee Min Ho in Heirs)!

I loved Do Min Joon and Lawyer Jang's relationship! It was adorable! Lawyer Jang was adorable!

I really didn't like Hwi Kyung at the beginning. But when he started investigating his brother and showed how smart he was, I fell in love with him! I honestly thought he would say 'My brother can't be like that.' and turn a blind eye to everything. But he proved how smart and strong he was! I'm proud of you Hwi Kyung!

Final Verdict: This was a good drama. The acting was outstanding! And the story was pretty interesting as well. I would highly recommend this drama! For me, it was worth the watch. If not the love story, it made for a good crime story!

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 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. ;)

    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. ^_^
