You Who Came From The Stars / Man From Another Star Episode 20 Fashion Review:
We’ve all been expecting the feels to rain down this episode and rain down it did. Not even Song Yi’s attempt for subterfuge to downplay her sadness can push away the foreboding feeling of Do Min Joon either disintegrating or leaving earth. And the fashion? Forgive me but I wasn’t paying that much attention. I was so busy taking inventory of my feels. But you’ll get a recap of it anyway, worry not.
Back at their hideaway, Do Min Joon listens while Song Yi tells him he should go back to his planet because she doesn’t want him to die here and she’s content knowing he is alive and safe somewhere.
There is much ado about their disappearance and surprisingly, nobody thinks Do Min Joon is freaky. In fact, his teleportation skills seemed to have only amplified his charm.
After failing to summon sleep, Song Yi resumes her talk with Min Joon and tells him that his impending death scares her a lot. But Do Min Joon countered that with the sage realization that it’s better to live in the moment and be happy, than live forever, not knowing what you are living for. This realization has eluded him all the years that he has been observing earth and has just dawned on him after meeting Song Yi and falling in love with her.
The next day, they are on their way home and only now did Song Yi ask about Jae Kyung. I thought this topic would never come up.
Meanwhile, Se Mi keeps Hui Kyung company in perhaps the most trying time of his life despite the latter wanting to keep to himself. Se Mi is looking spiffy in her adorable shorts suit that she wore with a ruffled top.
Yoo In Na’s jacket is from The Izzat Collection and her skirt is from Sonia Rykiel.
Prison uniform suits Jae Kyung best. Even when he’s backed up against a wall, he is still relentless. He instructs his attorney to do his best in getting him out of prison while he’s on trial.
Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi finally got home but couldn’t get in because the front of their apartment building is crawling with reporters. Song Yi made a plan to divert their attention while Min Joon escapes to the building first. She got out, faced the reporters but their attention switched to Do Min Joon, who didn’t follow Song Yi’s plan. Song Yi now looks more like Min Joon’s manager as the reporters tried to satiate their curiosity of him and his powers.
The whole dysfunctional Cheon brood has gathered in Song Yi’s apartment living room, watching the news. Mom is worried but dad and younger bro Yoon Jae seem unfazed. This is probably the only time I’ve wanted something worn by Mi Yeon. Her pastel cardigan, with its floral appliqués is just too cute!
Yoon Jae, on the other hand, is sporting a shirt and knit combo worn under a bomber jacket. And yay for the dad wearing a different outfit!
After being waylaid but a police officer, Do Min Joon had to go to the police station to give his statement. Cheon Song Yi insisted on accompanying him.
After the interrogation, made abrupt by the detectives’ help, Do Min Joon tried to teleport them, I’m assuming in Song Yi’s room, but ended up appearing in the living room instead. Right in front of the parentals.
But that’s not something to ponder on for a long time in this family as they sit for dinner like nothing’s amiss. Lol. Song Yi finally changed into this medal, baroque-printed dress. The headband shouldn’t be missing. She gave the look of a medieval girl with that studded leather headband and dress.

Do Min Joon gives his opinion about having a family. He’s always wearing a different outfit in his recounts. In this scene, he had on a grey sweater, a pair of jeans and a navy cardigan. It’s the classic Do Min Joon formula.
Probably to get some alone time with Do Min Joon, Song Yi tried to shoo her family away hinting that it’s already late. But Yoon Jae takes exception and is feeling a bit territorial and said Do Min Joon isn’t hers alone. The two squabbled about who owns Do Min Joon. Lol. I love the Cheon siblings.
Aha! I was waiting for this scene. I was somehow hoping Mi Yeon gives President Ahn a hard time. He deserves it after dropping Song Yi off like a hot potato. Even when President Ahn dangled the contract right in front of her nose plus a contract for Do Min Joon, Mi Yeon didn’t cave in. Not yet anyway. Yay! On the other hand, she’s back to wearing furry things. Hate that blazer with that skirt.
It’s back to work for Song Yi but Do Manager, with his current fame, can’t go with her lest he steals the limelight from Song Yi at work. Both are in black, with Song Yi opting for a leather jacket and Min Joon a textured bomber jacket.
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s Jacket:
Hui Kyung shows up, gives Song Yi a lingering hug as Do Min Joon eyes them with ill-concealed jealousy. Hui Kyung offered to take her to the set and even bought Song Yi a new phone. While Song Yi goes back to her apartment to get her forgotten purse, he talks to Do Min Joon saying he’ll back off for now but when Do Min Joon vacates his position, he’s right there to take his place. He hasn’t fully given up yet.

Hoho, Song Yi got herself a bigger role in Se Mi’s movie and the latter muses about the noise in the set because of the reporters trying to get ahold of Song Yi. The two engages in a competitive argument much like the ones Song Yi engages in with Yoo Ra.
While Song Yi pushes the boundaries of fashion with her palazzo pants and edgy jacket ensemble, Se Mi still insists on looking like a sammonim. I like her outfits better when she’s off-duty.
Mi Yeon interrogates Do Min Joon about his alien nature and seems fascinated by him. Really, this family is a bunch of weirdos. Can’t blame them though.
Kim Soo Hyun’s sweater is the:
When he got home, Do Min Joon noticed blood trickling from his nose. He staggered back to his room and falls on it weakly.
Clad in a green tweed shift dress and a pair of flats, Cheon Song Yi enters Do Min Joon’s apartment. She found Min Joon atop his bed, motionless.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s dress:
Lanvin Tweed Sweet Dress, $2445.00 (she’s wearing the green version)
Her shoes are from Roger Vivier.
Song Yi cried after assuming Do Min Joon’s dead. Her cries woke Min Joon up and she clings to him in relief. Later, she said this is how she’ll be like if he insists on staying and ends up dying in front of her. Song Yi said he should go. They can take lots of pictures so if he misses her, he can just look at the photos and think of her.
It’s down to a week before Min Joon’s departure so they both agreed to make this week extra memorable.
Kim Soo Hyun’s sweater is from Club Monaco.
But instead of trips and amusement parks, they contented themselves doing mundane stuff like watching sports and eating and arguing in front of the TV. Song Yi is wearing a matching attire again while Do Min Joon opts for another nondescript sweater.

He also helps her memorize her script but gets pissed off with the lines. Song Yi asks him who he will save if both her and Attorney Jang are drowning. He said he’ll save her because Attorney Jang is ex-marine and can take care of himself. Lol. Also, is Song Yi wearing denim or are my eyes deceiving me?
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Jumpsuit:
Kim Soo Hyun’s sweater is from Calvin Klein.
They also played cards and Song Yi fumes at her lack of luck, especially after her resounding success in her last card game. Ha! She wears a hunter green jacket with embellished pockets while Min Joon throws on a heart-adorned cardigan reminiscent to what Yoon Jae wore a few episodes ago.
Cheon Song Yi’s jacket is from Shopaholic and her pants are from SIWY.
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s Cardigan:
Comme Des Garcons Play Cardigan, $396.00
After being beaten by Min Joon in their card game, Song Yi playfully tried to exact revenge by trying to kiss him. Min Joon turns her over and kisses her for real. Awww. Also, oh no! Is he going to collapse again? But no, no collapsing scene this time.
Do Min Joon seems to have taken that last kiss well but his powers are definitely weakening. He tried to teleport to Song Yi’s side when she called out for him but ended up in this crowded place instead.
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s Cardigan:
8ight Seconds Triangle Pattern Cardigan, 69,900 Won
Attorney Jang showed up carrying a pair of rubber shoes, a scarf and a jacket to throw over his freezing cardigan-clad shoulders.
The park they are in is the same park they were in when Do Min Joon helped Attorney Jang. Attorney Jang asked him if he can hold his hand. He held Do Min Joon’s hand while he cried over his impending departure. He confessed to feeling like a parent losing his child.
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s Sneakers:
Lanvin Leather and Mesh Sneakers, £552.78
Kim Soo Hyun’s coat is from:
(same coat as Lee Min Ho’s in The Heirs episode 18)
Do Min Joon came home to find Song Yi waiting for him with a surprise. The apartment has been decorated with flowers and candles are everywhere. Song Yi also dressed up for the occasion. She is wearing another baroque-printed piece, this top with floral details and a lace pencil skirt. She said this is their wedding day because tomorrow he will leave. She also prepped up a proposal gift – a USB device containing her proposal video.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s top:
Get Cheon Song Yi’s skirt:
Dolce & Gabbana Lace Macrame Skirt, $1234.00
She mused about how Do Min Joon can’t say the words “I love you” to her but she knows he does. Do Min Joon said he has said the words so many times with her, only she can’t remember it, thanks to his convenient time-stopping powers. But this time, he lets her hear the words and says “I love you” repeatedly. Gutted.
So here’s Song Yi’s proposal video.
She asked a reluctant Se Mi to film her proposal video for her.
By the way, Yoo In Na’s jacket is from Obzee.
Song Yi danced to the tune of Marry Me and ended it with a bouquet and the will you marry me question. Also, while Se Mi is still in her blue fur coat, Song Yi has changed her palazzo pants for this more fitted tapered one and went for another black and white ensemble.

Ann Demeulemeester Cut Out Wedge Sandal, $1230.00
Do Min Joon laughs at her antics but started sobbing near the end. Sigh.
