Synopsis: Do Min Joon is an alien who landed on Earth 400 years ago during the Joseon Dynasty period. Do Min Joon possesses a near perfect appearance and enhanced physical abilities involving his vision, hearing and speed. Later, he discovers that he has three months left on Earth. And that is when he meets Cheon Song Yi, the biggest Hallyu star in Korea.
Review: Beyond hilarious, this drama is one of the top dramas I have watched. It is well scripted, the cast is brilliant… *cough* Kim Soo Hyun is ALWAYS BRILLIANT *cough* and it left me wanting more.
Cheon Song Yi is crazy. What more can I say? She amazingly funny and off the wall. I absolutely LOVE her. Love Love Love. Her over dramatization and aegyo had me in tears. Seriously could not get enough.
I could go on alllllllllll damn day about Do Min Joon. All damn day. Bloody Brilliant. But one thing that really stuck out to me is his interaction with Song Yi’s younger brother, Yoon Jae. Yoon Jae thinks of Do Min Joon as E.T. and it makes the most hilarious interactions.
I honestly dont…well….. didnt have anything bad to say about this drama… until the last episode. Now, I can understand that SBS needed to rush the episode a bit. I can understand that. But, the fact that they approved this course for the ending of this drama…… I cant accept that.
A friend of mine and I went back and forth spewing about 3-4 possibly more acceptable endings for this drama that actually made sense. Please tell me how disappearing in a field, and getting stuck in a wormhole, only to be able to teleport back temporarily… makes sense? What happened to the ship? If hes stuck in a wormhole, that means he never made it home. See how depressing that is? So if hes on the ship, then hes stuck in a worm hole and he teleports back to Earth for a short period of time. See how even more depressing that is?
See that image. Its now my answer for everything…. “Where are you going?”… “Im going on a JOURNEY…” Fabulous.
Now, the epilogue. Can you even call that an epilogue? It was 2 minutes long, and most of it was already previously shown. Did it make you feel better? Did it EXPLAIN anything? My answers to these important questions is… No. It was a waste of 2 minutes. Still no explanation on the Wormhole theory. Still no happy ending. SBS, did you really think that your half-assed ending would fly? Apparently, they did.
No marriage. No kids. No REAL happy ending. Just this fake happiness that the two of them can have when he is able to stay on Earth.
As much as I want to dock points for the AWFUL ending to this drama. Ill dock 1 point… I feel that is fair. The rest of the drama is FUCKING BRILLIANT and the score shouldnt suffer because of 1 episode.
SBS. you disappoint me.
