You Who Came From The Stars / Man From Another Star Episode 13 Fashion Review:
Welcome to the Jun Ji Hyun show. No, really. Not only did she totally dominate this episode, Kim Soo Hyun the resident alien notwithstanding, she also treated us to quite a number of outfit changes!
Last episode, Do Min Joon took Cheon Song Yi to the school museum where Yi Hwa’s hair pin is kept and preserved. He told Song Yi he’s an alien from outerspace, which the latter didn’t believe right away until he shattered the glass protecting Yi Hwa’s artifact.
Do Min Joon is again talking to an unknown thing/person. He’s wearing this white waffled and ribbed knitwear that looks cute but I’m having a difficult time identifying with the rest of his white knitted sweaters.
Do Min Joon isn’t a newbie in telling earthlings his real identity. Even back in the Joseon Dynasty era, he was quite generous in showing his powers off. Unfortunately, almost all those he shared his secret with aren’t too receptive to the idea of having an alien friend.
And then there’s Song Yi. She was understandably shaken but despite that, she still clings to his hand for support when her legs are failing her, something Do Min Joon didn’t expect. Song Yi was cannot wrap her head around the idea of DMJ being an alien at first and it looks like she’s more pissed off that she isn’t getting the date she has been expecting.
Do Min Joon walked out on Song Yi after saying his piece. With all the ruckus that happened last episode, I failed to recount this stellar outfit from Do Min Joon. It’s the typical DMJ look complete with turtleneck sweater and trench coat.
Do Min Joon didn’t leave the scene though. He waited until Song Yi came out. He even telekinetically made the taxi break down in front of Song Yi so she can hop in. But Song Yi didn’t even notice in her dazed state. She took out her frustrations on the stars though and yelled at them as if she’s speaking to Do Min Joon saying if DMJ is an alien then she’s a vampire because she hasn’t aged in decades.
Meanwhile, Jae Kyung engages in a creepy soliloquy where he’s talking to Yoo Ra. Is it a ghost or is Jae Kyung just getting more and more unhinged?
The broken vessel of Yi Hwa’s hair pin didn’t go unnoticed. It was taken away for repair by the museum officials. They were also talking about displaying the photos of the founders. Lo and behold, there’s Do Min Joon in his other personas.
Attorney Jang berated him about the way he broke the news to Song Yi. Also, this coat is reminiscent to the one Do Min Joon wore in episode 9. I’m pretty sure it’s the same one although in a different color. Navy? It’s hard to tell.

Intermezzo Coat, 567,000 Won
These two met up previously and Do Min Joon struck a deal with Jae Kyung. He was willing to own up to the crime of killing Yoo Ra if Jae Kyung will leave Song Yi alone. Jae Kyung agreed but we all know that’s not likely to happen.
Back to Song Yi. She confessed to Bok Ja about Do Min Joon’s excuse for not wanting to be with her (although she still keeps mum about DMJ’s identity). Bok Ja didn’t think the alien excuse is weird because she had her fair share of weird excuses.
Also, isn’t Song Yi’s boxy top the cutest or what? They’re doing Snoopy prints now in high fashion? I know I shouldn’t be surprised. They did Bambi and even Mickey Mouse so I guess Snoopy fits right in. Also, she was wearing a box pleated skirt from the same brand.
Cheon Song Yi’s boxy top and skirt are both from Fay:
To test Do Min Joon’s alien powers, Cheon Song Yi hiked to the mountain (in heels on less!) and started yelling for Do Min Joon to come help her because she’s in danger. It’s broad daylight so the ahjummas and ahjussis hiking around were staring at her in rapt fascination but Do Min Joon is still a no-show.
Here are the coordinates to Song Yi’s hiking-inappropriate outfit:

Do Min Joon sheds of his Intermezzo coat to reveal this plain gray cardigan. It’s a good thing anything looks good on him or he would have looked totally boring every single time he comes on screen.
And then while he’s in the middle of his lecture, in comes Cheon Song Yi, who managed to climb off the mountain. Song Yi comes with her own set of superpowers, I gather.
She pesters Do Min Joon after class and threatens to reveal his alien identity if he doesn’t have dinner with her. See? Superpower right there!
Do Min Joon agrees, of course. Does he even deny her anything? Maybe an official relationship but other than that, he’s pretty much lenient to her wishes.
He is still keeping up with the pretense of not wanting to be in a relationship though and coldly told Song Yi he doesn’t feel anything for her. The only reason he saved her is because of her uncanny resemblance with Yi Hwa, the girl from 400 years ago.
To save face, Song Yi said that this is the last she grovel at him and told him that the next time they meet, she won’t even acknowledge him.
True to her words, Song Yi started ignoring Do Min Joon completely the moment they stepped in the car to head back to Seoul.
Do Min Joon is having one of his enlightening lectures (seriously, I want to be in his class). The topic? The 5 stages of grief.
First stage: anger. See Song Yi kicking inanimate objects in an attempt to channel her pent-up anger. She’s doing it in style too, thanks to her matchy top and bottom.
Cheon Song Yi’s pants and top are both from:
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Top:
Chloe Striped Silk Shirt, $1394.70
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Trousers:
Chloe Striped Wide Leg Trouser, $917.71
Second stage: Denial. Song Yi claims she’s just on a spoof reality show. Ha!
I would have loved to see more of the structure of that top. It’s an interesting silhouette and one that deserve to see more sunshine!
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Top and Shorts:
Stage three: Bargaining. You know Song Yi is a master of bargaining, right? Oh, is that bluffing?
I love all the headwraps going on in her home outfits. It just serves to elevate a simple house garb without going overboard. I dislike how they make other actresses wear large accessories even when they’re at home. It just detracts the realness of the moment.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Headband:
Kate n Kelly Tweed Turban Hairband, 36,000 Won
Cheon Song Yi’s top is from Missoni.
Stage four: Depression. Song Yi: “I’m not crying. It’s just tears forming in my eyes”.
The sequin sweater needs no accessorizing. A simple headband, perhaps. But to keep it striking, tone down the bling. Also, it seems like the mom has been rummaging through Song Yi’s accessories pile.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Sweater:
3.1 Phillip Lim Sequin Colour Block Sweater, $265.00 (currently out of stock)
Fifth Stage: Acceptance. From Do Min Joon’s lecture, women going through the acceptance phase are generally determined to improve themselves.
Cheon Song Yi’s hoodie is from NEPA.
Men, on the other hand, are self-destructive. Seeing Attorney Jang hovering and fussing over a depressed Do Min Joon is quite funny. I don’t know but they strike me as an old couple.
Do Min Joon got a call from Attorney Jang that someone already bought the apartment and he’s on his way there.
It’s Hui Kyung! Do Min Joon refused to sell the apartment to him and said he’d pay him back double. Is he just jealous or is this a move to keep Song Yi away from Hui Kyung’s brother?
Song Yi seems to be recuperating well from her heartbreak. She tells Hui Kyung about her recent movie proposal, which will cast her in a sidekick role. But she doesn’t put on airs, saying she’ll be better off with a role that is far from the stereotypical heroine.
I love this outfit of hers. That preppy diamond print peeking out from the D-shaped cutout of the top is very quirky. You can’t see it here but she was wearing what looks like a frilly maxi skirt in black.
Cheon Song Yi’s top and skirt are both from Celine Summer RTW 2014
Cheon Song Yi’s headband is from Louis Vuitton.
After getting that tip about Jae Kyung from Song Yi, the detectives are hell-bent in finding a connection between him and the late Yoo Ra- even going out of their way to check old CCTV footages. Jae Kyung is keeping tabs on their progress, of course.
This prompts him to call Do Min Joon and tell him to hurry up in confessing to the police.
Hui Kyung is doing his own investigating. He searched his brother’s car and checked out the car’s recent GPS records. Bingo! He found the location of the mental institution.
Clad in an embellished poncho worn over a top and a pair of skinny pants, Cheon Song Yi revisited the museum and found Yi Hwa’s hairpin missing. She was trying to learn more about the hairpin from the curator to no avail. She then noticed a photo with Do Min Joon in it. To keep the students from seeing it, she tried to buy it. She got a no though.
Cheon Song Yi’s bag is from Philipp Plein, her sunglasses are from Marc Jacobs and her boots are from Stuart Weitzman.
It’s interesting to note how spiteful Se Mi’s mom has gotten. She meets Yang Mi Yeon in a salon. Mi Yeon boasted about Song Yi’s impending comeback. But before she could make a grand exit, the salon receptionist asked her to pay because Song Yi is no longer sponsored by the shop.
Do Min Joon is looking extra spiffy in this two-tone bomber jacket. He really should wear more bomber jackets. It gives a more superhero-quality to him.
His superhearing abilities zoned in on Cheon Song Yi, who is standing in front of his door, debating about something.
Song Yi was debating about whether or not she should tell Do Min Joon about his picture in the museum. She left him a note instead.
Occasionally, they allow Song Yi to wear a more youthful ensemble. I failed to take a decent screenshot of this but she was wearing a sweater over a pleated flounce skirt. The high top sneakers with socks made the look extra juvenile but it still works on her!

Get Cheon Song Yi’s headband:
Mzuu M+_H3, 180,000 Won
Her skirt is from Lucky Chouette.
Do Min Joon saw the note. He visited the museum and used his teleportation powers to make the photo disappear.
The detectives getting a lead on the Yoo Ra case.
After the scene at the salon, Mi Yeon was propelled to sign the contract offered by Jae Kyung. She’s hoping Song Yi will eventually understand. Again, Mi Yeon displays an unhealthy affection for fur coats. But the addition of that white top made this look cute in my eye despite my usual aversion to fur coats.
Song Yi is going over the script and was disappointed to note that her role requires a lot of action scenes. Yoon Jae taunted her about it, which only motivated her.
Cheon Song Yi’s shirt, pants and scarf are all from Gucci.
Can you spot Jae Kyung’s minion in the set of Se Mi and Song Yi’s new movie?
Do Min Joon finally pushes through with his plans to confess even with Attorney Jang’s arguments.
The pink duo arrives on set. The mom was surprised to that no one greeted them.
Song Yi proves that even in basic jeans and shirt, she can still outshine anyone within a 10-mile radius. That pink leather jacket and animal-printed booties helped a lot though. Meanwhile, mom looks ridiculous in that cotton candy-esque fur coat.
Cheon Song Yi’s jacket is from:
Cheon Song Yi’s bag is the:
Delvaux Tempete GM Satchel, $4980.21
Cheon Song Yi’s boots are from Giuseppe Zanotti, her pants are from SIWY, her sunglasses are from Balmain.
In comes Se Mi with her posse and wearing the iconic eye print Kenzo coat. Her appearance shocked both Song Yi and her mom.
Yoo In Na’s coat is the:
Kenzo Eye Print Coat, $580.00 (out of stock)
The PA’s coat is from:
Dolly & Molly Coat, 119,040 Won
This just motivated Song Yi to steal the scene from Se Mi. She volunteered to do the stunts even without a double. She looked the part too with that coat!
Do Min Joon, on the other hand, is on the verge of spilling the beans to the detectives.
Jae Kyung’s minion sabotaged the wires. Song Yi went over the ledge in her combat boots and jumped off.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Coat:
She’s Miss Coat, 188,100 Won
Get Cheong Song Yi’s Boots:
Sue Comma Bonnie Excuse Me by Gong Hyo Jin, 598,000 Won
Do Min Joon wasn’t a no-show when Song Yi was screaming her lungs out at the mountain after all. He really thought Song Yi was in danger and promptly teleported himself only to find out she was testing him. Ha!
