Heirs From Another Star is a Chinese parody film about the two Korean dramas Man From the Stars and Heirs.
The plot revolves around a Qing dynasty prince who time-travels to modern China to become a teenage heir attending a rich high school while in a brotherly intense battle. He has mad Wuxia skills so he can escape in an instant and freeze anyone, not to mention that he's a genius with photographic memory. The female lead is another heiress in another conglomerate who is engaged to the male lead. And of course, there's a triangle with the bad boy rival.
Cast & Credits
The only similar storyline was the fact that he's a rich son of a big company and that they go to a rich school. Other than that nothing was similar to the heirs or YCCFTS. The main guy just time travelled.
This drama actually had SO MUCH POTENTIAL if they made it into a proper drama...
It could have turned out to be a really good drama if it wasn't for its super duper short eps.
I actually liked how the story played out, but it was too short so everything was rushed...
Also due to low production, some scenes were really fake.. but i generally didn't mind that
So I've personally never seen any of the actors/actresses before so it was a nice experience.
I would look forward to their future works.
The music surprised me a lot, I really like the opening song and I plan to download it.
The other tracks were great as well.
Yea it was a nice experience but it was so short. Finished it before i even realise what was going on.
I still might rewatch it though.
All in all, i'm just so agitated about the fact that this drama had so much potential except due to low production or whatever the reason, it became a short short drama with eps thats 15mins long.
People who have the time and is interested in the story can sure check it out. It doesn't take much time anyway. :)
It is however ...different.
Even though it was made as an parody the story line has nothing to do with it - except the time traveling and the leads being rich.
It starts off really well and I thought it will something different then what it originally became. After episode 2 the story just went haywire.
I kept watching because I actually wanted to know what the hell will they do at the end. And it was funny.
The acting wasn't bad, per se but it wan't good either. It was some where in between 'what the hell' and 'okay?'
Zon Yang looked really pretty.
The only thing that I actually enjoyed in this drama is the opening song. It was amazing. It was sung by the male lead Wen Zhang. This song was the reason why I continued to watch it.
It was a funny thing to enjoy if you are looking for something different and out of the ordinary. Just don't expect much of it.
PS : A lot of people were asking where they can watch this. So I watched this (in English of course) in ViKi.Com - it's a website. You guys can find it there.
