You Who Came From The Stars / Man From Another Star Episode 17 Fashion Review:
I was expecting an episode drowning in tears based from that last scene in the previous episode. But no. This drama knows how to inject levity in the right moments and deliver them so flawlessly, you’d be left reeling and wanting more.
The episode started with Do Min Joon explaining how his kind came to visit earth hundreds of years ago. He also recounted how he got a job at a government office in the Joseon Dynasty, that involved him going over astronomy-related documents. A meteorite similar to the one that visited earth 400 years ago (and the one that camouflaged their transportation before) is about to pass by earth and this is chance of hopping in and getting home. He capped it off with a conclusion that if he doesn’t manage to go home this time, he’ll die on earth.
Do Min Joon sported a letterman cardigan for his recounting. This shade of blue suits him best, don’t you agree?
After walking away from Do Min Joon, Cheon Song Yi leaves the scene and invites herself Se Mi’s car. She cried all the way back to Seoul, making the others wonder what’s wrong with her. She even asked to change the music into something more sentimental. Lol at her choices of songs!
Se Mi thankfully changed from the ugly coat she was in to something a tad more becoming on her. I’m not a huge fan of animal print but at least she has bid goodbye to that horrid fur coat.
At home, Yoon Jae and Mi Yeon were watching news about an upcoming meteorite visit. Yoon Jae keeps himself comfy in a chunky navy sweater while his mom is determined to look chic (that necklace when you’re just bumming around at home?) even if she has no event to go to.
It was up to Do Min Joon to explain Cheon Song Yi’s absence to the director. The director didn’t take this kindly and said he’s just going to find another actress. Do Min Joon pointed out that had he not made her retake the action scene countless times, Song Yi would still be in good shape and doesn’t need to go to the hospital to recuperate from her former injuries – the injuries sustained by the director’s lapse in keeping his actresses safe on set.
Meanwhile, Hui Kyung has been relentless in his search for answers. He now got ahold of the list of people who helped with the stunt crew that day. He finally confirmed his suspicions.
Do Min Joon got home. Song Yi’s cries from the other apartment didn’t escape his superhearing abilities.

Song Yi wrapped herself up in her Louis Vuitton blanket whilst crying her heart out.
The next day, Song Yi is determined to move on. But Do Min Joon wanted to talk things out. Both are geared up for a brisk walk, with Song Yi totally looking like an ahjumma going for a walk up the mountain with her visor.
Song Yi’s jacket, sweater and muffler are all from Thom Browne (not available online).

Do Min Joon was distracted from chasing after Song Yi when a girl went and talked to him. Lo and behold, it’s the much awaited Suzy Bae cameo! She plays her Dream High role, Go Hye Mi. Do Min Joon didn’t recognize her though even when Hye Mi said he looks just like her ex, Song Sam Dong. Lol.

Nothing escapes Cheon Song Yi’s notice though. She backtracks and interrupts the two, prodding Do Min Joon to go with her if he really wants to talk just to get him off Hye Mi’s clutches.
Song Yi said he only wants him if he stays. If he can’t, then she won’t want anything to do with him. Do Min Joon accepted her decision with a heavy heart and walked away.
I must say I’m not unhappy to see Hui Kyung ditching his turtlenecks in favor of more collared shirts. I just find him more stylish this way. He wore this outfit when he went to visit his brother’s grave. He wondered how his hyung died from a car accident caused by his drunken state when he didn’t like to drink in the first place. His mom said it’s because he has been depressed prior to his death as the autopsy revealed him to be taking antidepressants. That rings a bell and Hui Kyung turned to the library to check on news reports of Yoo Ra’s death. His suspicions proved to be true.
He quickly changed outfit (what’s wrong with the previous one, unless, of course, this is another day) and met up with Detective Seok. He wants to help the detective finalize the case and Seok wonders why Hui Kyung wants to help when it’s his brother who’s going to be implicated.
Park Hae Jin’s coat is the:
Renoma Coat (black version), 204,600 Won
Bok Ja and Cheon Song Yi spend some quality time together. From what little I can see of Song Yi’s outfit here, she looks gorgeous. She looks so great in shirt dresses. But then again she looks great in anything.
Bok Ja is not a bad dresser herself. She’s channeling a bit of Song Yi here with that draped denim jacket and button down shirt.
Do Min Joon has been drinking. Yes, the alien who swore he will never drink again because of what his powers might do.
Kim Soo Hyun’s cardigan is from DSQUARED2.
Here’s the full look of Song Yi’s outfit. She wore a coat with a houndstooth patch detail on it over her shoulders.
Cheon Song Yi’s Outfit is from Dior:

Dior S/S 2014 Blazer (cr.Style.com)
She changed into this yellow sweater with matching pleated midi skirt. While pensively drinking water, lights go off.
Do Min Joon is the culprit to the massive power interruption, as expected.
He also managed to teleport himself to Song Yi’s bedroom.

Here’s another one of his collection of grey sweaters, only identified by the double bands on either sleeves.

He came to eventually but wondered why the bed sheets are not his own. And then he realized he is in Song Yi’s bedroom with the latter waiting for him to wake up.
If this is how Do Min Joon looks like after a night of indulging in one too many drinks, I’m envious. But then again aliens probably don’t know what a dishevelled, i-had-a-rough-night look is like.
Song Yi is looking mighty fine herself that morning. I wonder where she spent the night? With Min Joon? I love this dress. It has this quirky beach ball print on it.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Dress:
Gucci Beach Ball Print Silk Pleated Dress, $2700.00
Do Min Joon has been spending a lot of time in front of this, err, camera? And here he is again in another grey sweater.
Song Yi’s mom tried to get in to borrow something but Song Yi locked her door just in time. Do Min Joon can’t teleport, probably an aftereffect of his drinking and resorted to braving the balcony trek to get to his apartment.
Yoon Jae, the suspicious brother acting like the father, entered Song Yi’s bedroom and wondered who she has been talking to. Do Min Joon’s love for grey sweaters must have rubbed off on him although you can still see Yoon Jae’s personality with the sweater’s print.
Get Ahn Jae Hyeon’s Sweater:
Chris Christie Printed Sweater, 71,820 Won
He visited his father but only looked at him from afar. He threw on this ribbed jacket over his sweater ensemble.
The detectives are so close to finding evidence that will solidify their claim of Jae Kyung’s involvement. They got intel from Hui Kyung about the mental hospital that Jae Kyung is using to hide his ex-wife. But when they got there, she’s not there.
I’m really liking Yoon Jae’s outfit choices. This blue coat worked so well with that shirt with its contrasting collar. He waylaid Do Min Joon and talked to him about his sister.
Do Min Joon, on the other hand, is in his usual black garb.
Song Yi is talking to Do Min Joon in the hopes that the other is listening next door. She’s wearing this structured white shirt offset by a printed wrap skirt.
Cheon Song Yi’s top and skirt are from Vivienne Westwood.
Do Min Joon is indeed listening. When Song Yi suggested they spend what little remaining time they have together and do things they want together like take a trip somewhere, he agreed.
When Song Yi stepped out of her apartment the next morning, Do Min Joon was already waiting for her.
Is that a denim shirt peeking out from your coat, Do Min Joon? It’s probably the first time I see him in something other than his knitwear and button down shirts.
They’re almost identical. Do Min Joon looks imposing on his coat while Song Yi is chic in her zipped cape.
Cheon Song Yi’s cape is from Tom Ford and her shoes are from Lanvin.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s bag:
Kim Soo Hyun’s bag is from Colombo Via Della Spiga.
Hui Kyung has become a tad more aggressive. He asked his brother to go with him somewhere because he is going to introduce him to someone. But when they got there, Jae Kyug got a call from his minions, saying that they lost his ex-wife. He was about to leave to attend to the matter when Hui Kyung forced him back and opened the door. His ex-wife is sitting there, waiting for him, with the detectives.
Remember when Do Min Joon was wearing this bomber jacket earlier when he was talking to Yoon Jae? It turned out he went here beforehand. Hui Kyung asked for his help to track down Jae Kyung’s ex-wife. He teleported to where they were keeping her.
I’m assuming this is what Do Min Joon had on underneath his coat. Cheon Song Yi, on the other hand, is not yet ready to let go of the cape. They arrived at their vacation destination and what’s the first thing they do? Read scripts.
Song Yi made Min Joon read script so she can practice. But the script sounds suspiciously like their love story. Min Joon paused at a line and walked out saying he doesn’t want to do this anymore.
Song Yi couldn’t find him anywhere and panicked, calling out his name.
Do Min Joon reappeared and Song Yi told him she got scared because she thought he has left without saying goodbye. But Do Min Joon allayed her fears and said he’s not going anywhere. Not now, not in a month, not ever. So he has finally made a decision to stay.
Flashback to that time when Song Yi is writing the “script”. She really phrased the script so that it resembled all the things she wants Do Min Joon to say to her.
This must have been the cue Do Min Joon has been waiting for so he was able to make a decision once and for all.
