I’m back with a passion!! *o* 3 words: KIM SOO HYUN! He stole my heart yet again in this drama series. Also the main female lead, Jeon Ji-hyun, has always been one of my favorite actresses (My Sassy Girl). Kim Soo Hyun’s character as a handsome alien professor, who by the way graduated from Harvard, is just plain awesome.
Okay, before I get into the official casting, watch online links, other info, let me give some dips on what I thought about the plot. The set-up of the story is intriguingly interesting and there are way too many possibilities of where the conflicts lie to even start guessing. A self-isolated alien who waited for 400 years to return home, and when he has his chance, love smacks him right in the face. A bratty top star who is actually lonely and fragile inside. So you got two lonely hearts who have a ticking clock counting down their time of being together, mixed with a healthy dose of first loves and fate, and in the mix, thrown in a possibility of reincarnation. Combine these, and you’ll get the perfect recipe for a hot mess.
Do Min Joon (KIm Soo Hyun) is definitely a tsundare! He acts all tough and heartless, but inside he’s slowly learning to care for Choen Song Yi. Something that he has closed his heart to for the past 400 years. It’s not that he’s incapable of love, but he hasn’t allowed himself to because a lifetime of love is a lifetime of pain, and so he waits for his comet while living as an observer in his own life. Also not to mention his past tragic love when he first got to earth. Anyways, now onto the official info… ^o^
