Besides the sci-fi elements this was a pretty average start. Sure there's promise. To be quite honest I don't care for either leads at this point, but there's room to develop them.
My first glaring issue is that Song Yi is apparently a classic airhead/stupid lead. Though I do enjoy the take on how quickly everyone is to immediately start bashing her. It's true with social media. One minute you're praising them, read morethe next there's blood in the water and everyone is a bully.
Min Joon's is the smart and cold lead. With glimpses of the past when he first landed on our planet his warmth is apparent, it's clear that living that long and watching everyone die has made him cold. Though I wonder how smart he is if he hasn't jumped on silencing head phones? Though I guess if he can hear through sound proof apartments the poor guy is screwed. But . . . what if he was on his planet he wouldn't have this issue? Wouldn't they have mediation things so they could block out the noise and sleep.
There's already some glaring issues with the science here. That's okay, there's room for explanations later.
The setup for reincarnations/fated love is nicely developed. Min Joon's minions are really cute and I hope they're a part of the story and not just obligatory side characters. The third wheel of the love triangle is nice, Hui Kyung, and I already feel bad for him! Overall it's an all right start.
The first episode was well done. I love that there was no lingering to get to the point and the main role Do Min Joon style is so cool! :D
I was just a little confuse but that made me want to watch more. The part where Cheon Song Yi is the girl and what not. I cannot wait to see how this drama unfolds
I rate this as an 9. I feel the very very start is greatness. The introduction of the main character "Do Min Joon" was well done and they really do put you in his state of mind toward Earth etc. So that's 10 minutes in. Time for main character #2, "Cheon Song Yi". Wow she's not too bright, we get that impression right away. Spoiled, strong willed and all that. Certainly not read moretoo likable so far. You do feel bad for her mid way but hey, looks like she is her own worst enemy. At this stage it's kind of hard to picture these two getting together thus I think this is why I found it kind of hard to motivate myself for Ep 2 (which now at ep 19, I think, "OMG this show is the best and WTF was I thinking???") KEEP WATCHING Srly!
This episode was good but I'm not impressed (yet). I was bored most of the times and the main female character was the only thing really interesting about this episode. Maybe it'll take me a few episodes to really get into it.
Not as draggy or slow to enter into the main storyline as most first episodes, also not rife with disgusting potty humor or over the top acting. Typically I hate first episodes of even the best kdrama, but this one was actually pretty fun and strong overall. Will definitely continue this series.
7.5 is a fair score from me. At times I was bored, at times I found it too cheesy, but at times I was giggling and enjoying myself. Everyone saying this drama gets better & better, so I might (might!) check out episode 2, if I'm bothered. I can definitely see it developing to be something great.
This is a very promising drama, as it didn't unveil its hidden cards in the first episode.
It showed us just enough to get hooked but not too much.
So far, the second female lead dosn't look like the mean type and the second male lead seems to be sincerely in love with Song Yi.
I like how it starts rightaway tell the story (and they showed KSH's abs ;P)
And usually there's this ignorant and stupid woman who ends up being lonely. But in this drama the lead female was the "going to end up loner"-type! Awesome! :D
And everything supernatural is always extra good for romance dramas (;
There's great efects too! Big bonus!
If I have to say something negative I'd say that Jun read moreJi Hyun is too skinny o.o ! And end came tooo fast! C;
Start seems promising!
p.s this was my 1st review so it might be... awkward :D
A times, I found it boring and the narration a distraction. I guess if I was a fan for either leads, maybe I would be looking at it differently. I already see I'll feel sorry for YIN's character. So pitiful to love someone who loves someone else.
its my first time to write something about any drama ...but who came from the stars from its beginning shows us that its going to be a really good and very exciting drama..they hocked us with the story (which is totally new )& the characters (which are totally amazing )....well, i cant wait till the next Episode..
Both leads are unusual and both pretty stoic. Great. The background stories seem interesting, like their previous meeting and also his history in Korea. But hey, it's only the first episode, often dramas drop after the first episodes, let's hope this won't be like that.
I love the start,and I think it will be good till the end. It's a very unique story and that's what brings you more to watch it. :D Kim Soo Hyun oppa is sooo hoot and I'm soo glad that he is the main lead. Jun Ji Hyun is also very good, I like her :D
So, I'd like to say a few things about this first episode.
Overall : a very good start, we are in the story already, so no draggy beginning. Also the plot is original, the characters are introduced, and the chemistry between the leads is promising. So far it's fun, hot and interesting. I'm sold. I will follow this drama for the next 10 weeks.
Now, a few things...
1st : SHOWER SCENE read more!!!!!!!
hm, needed to say that. It wasn't necessary but god that was good to see.
2nd : The nerdy library girl inside me is totally jealous of his apartment.
3rd : Only Kim Soo Hyun can make a class about insect copulation sound funny. And also kinda hot.
4th : So far I like the kind of couple they'll make, even if it's starting to remind me of Queen In-Hyun's man (the intellectual difference, the fact that she is a actress, the fact that he's stuck on modern korea when he actually want to go home), but I'm sure the drama will get its own originality.
5th : She's the girl that died long time ago, that he saw again a few years ago and wish to find but she actually doesn't remember him ? Moon/Sun much ? Naaaa, I don't care, I love those kind of plot. But still.
