There's a reason why You Who Came from the Stars had fans watching each episode while sitting on the edge of their seats every week and peeking out their windows after the show aired, hoping for their own personal alien invasion. With Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince references woven here and there throughout the story, this drama has everything you could possibly want. It lacks for nothing! Charismatic, believable leads; romantic read more storyline; and an incredibly evil/creepy villain. ALL the actors brought their A-game to this one. It was one of those rare gems where they must have all just clicked and it translated to the screen. I loved everything about this drama- even the intro scene that shows the passage of time. You can tell that great care went into the making of drama right down to the smallest detail. I loved the flash backs that filled in the backstory. I loved the documentary feel when they interviewed the characters. I loved how the second male lead actually helped move the story forward and wasn't clueless/innocent and certain aspects. That was refreshing. I especially loved the fact that Jun Ji Hyun was secure enough as an actress to really show different aspects of her character and let you see the vulnerability and human-ness while still being egomaniacal and exasperating yet sweet and even goofy! I loved the internal/external monologues she would have with herself. I loved how the male lead's class lectures were tied into that episode's storyline. I loved his wild jealous imaginings. They're the most adorable kdrama couple I've seen to date and the comedic timing on the facial expressions from the two leads was perfection. The clothing/costumes especially the female lead's was perfection. Can you tell I have a lot love for this one yet?

Seriously though, I'm re-watching this show for the 3rd time now and enjoying it immensely! Even though I know what's going to happen I still have nail biting moments and I've noticed very small details that I believe I missed the first two times. It speaks of the universal search for your person or people. The ones who when they're around you, no matter where you are it becomes home. If you watch it you won't regret it.

When I started this drama i expected something that goes in the star treck or star wars direction. Of course i knew it was a drama based on romance and that it would never be anything like that, but when i heard the word "alien" i expected something scifi-like.
And I'm glad i was wrong, because i hate those things. Thats why i first didn't know if i should watch it and read more i'm so happy that i did.

This drama is the best i've ever watched since boys over flowers.. at least for me. I cried so much at the end, not because of it's ending but rather since it was over. I'm a huge fan of Kim Soo Hyun since dream high, but compared to this drama .. whoo.. he became soo hot. I've gotta admit that the actress was new to me (i've started watching k-dramas in 2012 so don't blame me please~).
But i loved the chemistry between those two.
At first i kinda disliked her character, because she was so arrogant and full of herself, and dumb. But when the story continued you've got to see her soft side and that she was a kind person, but still she was hilarious from the beginning til the end. I laughed so hard, i almost cried.
And the male lead was kinda hard for me too, because i don't really like those characters that act so mean in the beginning and so play so hard to get, even though he has a pretty good reason.
The minor characters where adorable too. I personally loved Cheon Song Yi's little brother. He was so cute and the bromance with Do Min Joon was great.
Even the evil guy was great. I really really hated him to death, which proves how great the actor was.

The soundtrack was awesome. I loved the song "My Destiny by Lyn", but it was kinda annoying after some time. And because i'm (now) a huge fan of Hyorin from Sistar, i loved the track "Hello Goodbye". Thats the two songs that were stuck in my head, even til now.

I would definitely say it is a drama that is worth watching, even if you don't like alien stuff and such. But for rewatching i would say you should wait a while before restart watching. I waited like half a year and i coudn't remember a little things so i rewatched it.

Okay, these 2 dramas are have completely different plots, but it will give you the same vibe, since I found some similarities between them: time traveling, same kind of male main role's personality (calm, calculate and 'rigid'), same kind of female main role (cheerful, reckless, annoys the male lead a lot!!), the limited time living in each other's world and also the good fighting evil plot.
Recommended by Dia
Both female leads play actresses that have over the top egos and go through reversal of fortunes due to unfortunate circumstances and misunderstandings.

    I have watched 5-6 movies of Jeon Ji Hyeon and I loved all her characters in all the movies (mainly in 'Windstruck' and 'The Berlin File'), but, in YWCFTS, she looks a bit older (Is it because KSH looks very young?) and I feel that she is not a good choice for the female lead. Park Shin Hye should have been apt for the Song yi role.

      I disagree, i think Jun Ji Hyun was perfect for her role here. What's wrong with looking older, younger girls don't have the same feminine wiles and women in their 30s is actually when they look most beautiful and sexy xP

    MLFTS is such a masterpiece. You really won't regret watching it. No dull moments, very entertaining.

    Another drama I don't know why I put off, cause I really enjoyed it. I love the cast especially JJH, she was hilarious. I didn't like the end though, I was expecting something a bit different. It is cliche and draggy at times but still worth the watch. =)

    watched this drama right when it was aired in Korea and I really really liked it. The main reasons were because the unique plots, great acting by jun ji hyun, great chemistry between the 2 leads, great OST, and hilarious scenes. for me, the visible flaws were just the repeating rescuing the female lead's scenes. I knew chun song yi is one of the best female lead in kdrama history but those rescuing scenes became quite boring. however, this is one of my favorite kdrama of all time! ^^

    Don't get me wrong I really like this drama, but it is SO overrated!

    The drama still had it's flaws and I found that it was still a somewhat typical love story. I enjoyed it but I wasn't 100% satisfied, more like a 95%. I've seen better dramas this year. I know I'm only on my 6th drama, but out of those 6 I would say that YWCFTS is my 3rd or 4th favorite. Also 4/6 of those dramas aired in 2014.

    The Best K Drama ever!!!
    1. ABS (US based station) is currently working out on the adaption MLFTS
    2. This k-drama hits across asia
    3. Rapid growth of Korea's fashion economy because of Jun Ji Hyun and Kim soo Hyun
    4. Remember the Cheon song yi lipstick? Sold-out even in e-bay and take note of the rapid price increase and those lipstick shades dominated the runway of NY and Paris during Fashion Week.
    5. LINE in the hotly contested Chinese social media market has increased significantly.
    6. KHS became "star that dominates Asia" and recently he was appointed as "Ambassador of Korea"
    7. JJH become the richest K-Drama actress
    8. And who forgot the Chicken and Beer?
    9. And most of all they both hailed as "DAESANG AWARDEE"
    10. And many moreee

    No OTHER K-DRAMA can top that! NO OTHER COUPLE can get that!!

    Just sayin -xx
