You Who Came From The Stars / Man From Another Star Episode 16 Fashion Review:
This is the episode we’ve all been waiting for. Jae Kyung’s evilness takes a backseat as the story steers towards the pressing problems that can no longer be shrugged off in Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi’s human-alien relationship. Fashion-wise, I adored all the outfit changes!
Following Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi’s kiss, the latter breaks it off first and stars ranting about Do Min Joon’s gall. Min Joon just stares at her while breathing heavily. After a while, he was already sprawled on the floor. Song Yi stops her tirade and helps Min Joon out.
Cheon Song Yi carried and drove Do Min Joon to his apartment, nearly colliding with a car in the process. She took off her jacket. She was wearing this feminine top all along! The jacket looks so edgy, I figured she must have worn something just as edgy inside. But no. She had to pick something unexpected.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Lace Top:
Claudie Pierlot Balzac Top, €145.00
Her jacket is from DKNY and her pants are from SIWY. The boots were already featured in the previous episode.
She finally realized kissing does that to Do Min Joon and she starts asking him what else isn’t allowed. Min Joon pulls her into a half embrace and Song Yi snuggles closer. She asks him who the kiss was for – if it was for her or for the person she resembles. Do Min Joon said it’s for her.

Sandro Homme Manteau Leon, €197,50
Still clad in this attire, Song Yi tiptoes out of Do Min Joon’s apartment while answering Yoon Jae’s call. She lies to Yoon Jae saying she just got in after spending the night at work. But when she opened the door, a furious-looking Yoon Jae clad in a padded jacket and his school uniform greeted her.
The tables have turned as Yoon Jae berates Song Yi for spending the night in a man’s apartment.
Meanwhile, Jae Kyung went back to the hospital only to find his brother awake. But Hui Kyung still continues with his farce and tells his brother he hasn’t fully regained her faculties yet because he can’t remember much of what happened before the accident. It also seems imperative that something is worn over his ghastly hospital gown. Hui Kyung opted for this varsity jacket.

In an uncharacteristic show of brotherly love, Yoon Jae took it upon himself to act as Song Yi’s father and barged in Do Min Joon’s home to ask him about his feelings for his sister. Do Min Joon only seems amused.
Yoon Jae is garbed in one of my favorite pairings – sweater and a printed top! I must say I like it when he is out of his school uniform. Do Min Joon, on the other hand, warms up in a cozy knitted cardigan, worn over a plain grey shirt.
Yoon Jae forgot himself though when he saw Do Min Joon’s impressive astronomy artillery.

His shirt is also from Maison Martin Margiela.
They both geek out about astronomy for a while. Yoon Jae even took selcas with the telescope as his backdrop.
Song Yi really goes the extra mile in dressing up! Even if it’s just a trip to the hospital to visit Jae Kyung, she’s dressed to the nines.
Jae Kyung tried to fish information from Hui Kyung about what he knows with his involvement with Yoo Ra. Hui Kyung feigned ignorance and told him his head hurts if he tries to think too much.
Yoon Jae is completely enamored with his soulmate (Do Min Joon). He’s still ogling at the photos Min Joon gave him. Song Yi seems mystified at Yoon Jae’s complete change of opinion.
I don’t know about you but I feel like Yoon Jae filched this jacket from Song Yi’s closet. It has a vague feminine vibe to it. It’s the padded shoulders, I suppose. He’s wearing an outfit from Chris Christie.
Also, here’s a better look at Song Yi’s outfit.
Cheon Song Yi’s outfit is from Paul Smith:

I love it when she goes preppy! I really am just a sucker for collared tops worn with A-line/pleated skirts. Cheon Song Yi wore this when she tested Do Min Joon’s superhearing ability by murmuring his name. Do Min Joon appeared, thereby impressing Song Yi, but got miffed when he realized Song Yi was just toying with him. Song Yi called out to him in remorse and Min Joon teleported back to her balcony.
Love that pale orange A-line skirt. I think this kind of skirt is very slimming.

After bringing him coffee, they talked for a while. The topic touched Min Joon’s family. Song Yi realized he has been alone all this time, without a family to turn to. She said she’s here now and she’ll be there for him. This made her realize that Min Joon hasn’t aged in 400 years. It freaked her image-conscious sensibilities out!
She got herself worked up over aging and started slapping anti aging masks on her face.

Get Cheon Song Yi’s Pants:

She also started becoming more active. It’s so typical of Song Yi to choose quirky stuff even for gym wear. I’d use that pink top anywhere but the gym!
Cheon Song Yi’s shirt is from Emanuel Ungaro (can’t find the exact one but a similar one from the same brand can be bought here)
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Trainers:
Her shorts are from Maje.
She’s also quick to believe an anti aging tip from a Home Shopping channel! She really likes her printed dresses. But this one seems to be a cut above the rest with its pleated details.

While Attorney Jang and Do Min Joon were talking, the latter noticed the bug (finally!). He signaled Attorney Jang to act naturally for the bug’s benefit. He told Attorney Jang about Jae Kyung’s offer and said he’d accept it if only to keep Song Yi safe.
Song Yi omma is in fur. Again. What is this addiction? Yoon Jae, on the other hand, looks gorgeous as usual even if he’s just in a simple black tee.
Hui Kyung has finally been discharged from the hospital. He asked big brother to take him to Song Yi’s place. Before getting in his car, he noticed Jae Kyung’s new secretary. He pretended to mistake him for the secretary he saw in Jae Kyung’s office to further cement his farce.
Park Hae Jin’s coat is from Gucci, his shirt is from Sandro Homme and his neck warmer is from General Idea.
Do Min Joon came to pick up Song Yi in a gorgeous padded coat. There’s really nothing to fault with his style!
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s Coat:
Thom Browne Cashmere Storm Down Coat, $975.00
Cheon Song Yi appeared in an outfit that floored both Min Joon and Yoon Jae – in the wrong way! She attempted to slash 10 years off her age by wearing a snoopy-printed color block jacket and pleated skirt. While I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this outfit (I’d wear it any day!), it was her over-the-top pigtails that totally had me laughing for a full minute at her audacity.

Song Yi’s perforated skirt is from Sandro, her bag is from Vivienne Westwood.
I’m sad to see the Snoopy ensemble go as Song Yi changes into a more celebrity-appropriate look.
Min Joon and Song Yi ran into Se Mi. What are they doing to Se Mi these days? Are they really trying to emphasize the gap between her and Song Yi? This outfit isn’t doing you any good, Se Mi. It has sammonim vibes written all over it.
Even Song Yi disapproves!
She got invited to an interview where she has to play Se Mi’s bestfriend. But the brutally honest Song Yi just couldn’t hide her animosity! Lol.
Except the boots and accessories, all the pieces in Cheon Song Yi’s ensemble are from Ann Demeulemeester 2014 S/S Collection.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Sunglasses:
Gentle Monster LA Rouge 01, 205,000 Won
Before her scene, Song Yi runs into the director and his assistants and complains about being left behind the last time. The director apologized in behalf of the assistant. But Min Joon heard them talking that it serves Song Yi right. Turns out the director is still harboring ill feelings from being turned down by Song Yi in the past. The director and his cohorts conspired to make things difficult for Song Yi.
True enough, they made her retake this action scene multiple times but ended up settling for the first take. Cheon Song Yi looks badass though in this trench coat. The gloves are the same Philipp Plein gloves she wore episodes ago.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s coat:
She’s Miss Trench Coat, 92,200 Won
Although she’s having a difficult time, Song Yi is over the moon with happiness (and who wouldn’t be with Do Min Joon on your side?). But her bubble is about to be burst as Do Min Joon confesses that he can’t do a lot of the things Song Yi is fantasizing they do because he is due to go back to his home planet. This crushed Song Yi and she walked away in tears.

100 days later…
It seems like they did what they planned on doing during their last month together because they have a lock in place at the famous Namsan tower.
Song Yi seems to be waiting for Do Min Joon in the revolving restaurant. When she’s trying to dress to impress, Song Yi often turns to Chanel. Can’t blame her. Chanel never fails!

I’m so glad this drama is finally facing the real problems in their non-stereotypical pairing- her aging, his impending departure and his intolerance to kissing. It’s a crazy whirlwind of funny moments and in-your-face sadness because you too don’t have the answers to their predicaments. It’s one of those dramas with an ending that is hard to piece together.
