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.

Make a Recommendation More recs (27)Recommendations

Cheong Song Yi from YWCFTS is very similar to the female lead in MND and this is noticeable from the get go. It's almost like one inspired the other. However, there is no Do Min Joon personality in the male lead. He'd like to think that he is a Do Min Joon because his character is motivated by an intrinsic desire to be alone like Do Min Joon but for very different reasons.

However, they are alike in that they both have overtly outgoing females come into the lives of solitude seeking males and just throw their world apart and make them realize what they were missing.
Recommended by Onyx
Although there are serious differences in the story-lines, both are based on a female actress in the modern day being in love with man from another place. The main difference being that one place is 300 years in the past for Queen In Hyun's Man, whereas the leading main role from You Who Came From The Stars was an alien. Both romantic relationships are of equal levels in sappiness, comedy, adorable-ness, and satisfaction. Thus if you loved Queen In Hyun's Man I suggest you watch You Who Came From The Stars because it's another fantastic romantic fantasy comedy.

    Nothing but a boring cliché that I am tired of watching over and over. I am sorry if I've offended you. I know I get upset when someone doesn't like my favorite shows.

    I'm at episode 20 and i don't know enough words to descibe this drama. First of all i finally understand why everyone loves this drama and why kim soo hyun recieved soo many awards for this role. For me, is the first time when i see him in a man role. Because in Dream High and Producer he playes the role of a shy and slightly awkward teenager. And gosh their chemistry! I guess everyone can notice that she is a noona to him but Ji Hyeon noona is so awesome! That woman has my heart ! Also i love the mistery in this drama, with the bad big brother and the most intersting fact is that even the second male lead is so sweet and lovely i don't have the second lead syndrome. I feel sorry for him but the chemistry between Song Yi and Do Manager is daebak! I'm crazy for this drama! Eveytime Kim Soo Hyun grabs her and kisses her i feel butterflies! Eveything is so romantic and just the way it should be. Yes he is an alien but i love that they didn't add akward situations like in any comedy romance drama. I said so many things in this comment but i still feel there are more words to say about this drama. That's how awesome this drama is! It won't leave you speechless...it will make you talk non stop! I have that crazy habbit...after a good episode from a drama i tend to go to bed and think about what happened, why, and this drama is so awesome that i'm afraid to finish it! I want to watch it everyday! so YOU MUST WATCH THIS DRAMA!!!

    p.s. i hope the ending won't ruin everything...sometimes a sad ending is better than ,,magic"

    I enjoyed watching it, but it was nothing special. A cliché ending made the whole thing easily forgettable to me. Even so, the villain was insane and made me laugh a lot.

    I always go back to watch some snippets of this drama over and over again despite having finished it long time ago. I just find certain parts namely Cheong Song Yi's so hilarious and every time it still makes me laugh like the first time.

    I'm on episode 2 and I can't stand the characters I will try to see the third episode but I think I'll drop this series.

      This is such a great drama. This is also recommended for me to watch and I almost drop it when I saw the lead actress in episode 1, but my sister told me that it was Jun Ji Hyun from The sassy girl movie. I continue to watched because I really loved her from that movie. And I'm thankful that I watched this, finished this drama within 2 days.
