You Who Came From The Stars / Man From Another Star Episode 21 End Fashion Review:
Another drama concluded. Did the ending deliver? That is open for arguments. Did it satisfy. Yes – at least I’m satisfied. Plus, the drama went out with a fashionable bang!
We start off with the last scene from the previous episode – their mock wedding/proposal scene. Do Min Joon told Song Yi he considers his ability to suspend time as his most powerful ability. And countless times in the past, he was able to use it to express his love for her. But because his hands were tied, he wasn’t able to speak the words in a way she’d be aware of. But he’s telling it now to her. Song Yi responded by saying he loves him: the him that is with her and the him that existed all those years.
Do Min Joon recounts how he has been abiding by a personal rule to never care for anything or anyone so it will be easy to leave when the time comes. But the last three months changed all that.

In bed, Song Yi asks him when he started liking her. He can’t point out exactly. Maybe it’s that time in the elevator or when she went to his home drunk. But one thing is for certain, he was afraid of losing her.
The meteor shower arrived.
They’re both watching the meteor shower take place. Song Yi earnestly wished as is the earthly custom when spotting a falling star. While doing so, Do Min Joon noticed his hands vanishing. He knows it’s time.
He tells Song Yi to take care of herself and not get sick, to cover up when it’s cold and not to accept projects with back hugs and kiss scenes. He tells her that if he doesn’t come back, she has to forget everything. Song Yi silently cries and turns her head away.
Kim Soo Hyun’s coat is from Sandro Homme.
She fumes at the forgetting bit and asked him how she’ll be able to forget. When she didn’t get an answer, she turned around only to find Do Min Joon gone. She cried while yelling he can’t just vanish after saying all that.
Also, I almost forgot about the fashion review what with all the feels going on around here. Song Yi here used pastel really well, not overly saccharine. She partnered a pastel top with taupe wide leg pants and printed jacket.
Cheon Song Yi’s whole look is from Valentino S/S 2014.

President Ahn is determined to get Song Yi back in his agency. He arrives at her doorstep bearing gifts. But Mi Yeon isn’t thrilled about the offer of SS 2014 dibs. She’s more concerned about her daughter who hasn’t been eating and sleeping since Min Joon’s departure.
Cheon Song Yi has taken over Do Min Joon’s vacated apartment. So I’m assuming Do Min Joon really owns the place and not just renting it. Song Yi keeps on hallucinating that Do Min Joon is still there.
Song Yi and Min Joon echo one another in their outfits. Both are wearing navy and both seem to be sporting galaxy-inspired clothes.
Cheon Song Yi’s top is from Blumarine and her pants are from SIWY.

Jae Kyung’s trial is on-going but he still seems to be harbouring some idea that his position as a chaebol is going to save him from prison. But no, his dad knows what he did to his eldest son. Jae Kyung makes a last attempt to deny it, saying Hui Kyung is lying.
Song Yi is still moping in Do Min Joon’s home so Mi Yeon sent Hui Kyung to pull her out of her misery. Hui Kyung is looking extra dapper in this monochrome suit. He told Song Yi about that time when Do Min Joon asked him to keep tabs on her.
That moment when they were waiting for Song Yi, Do Min Joon told him he’s leaving somewhere and asked him to help check in on Song Yi.
When Song Yi got home, he found Yoon Jae cleaning Min Joon’s precious telescopes. Turned out Do Min Joon gave him these telescopes.
Get Ahn Jae Hyeon’s inner shirt:
He also told Yoon Jae he is going on a trip and that he wants him to take care of her sister and do what she wants. Yoon Jae was reluctant at first but immediately caved in after being bribed with the telescopes. Lol. He asks permission to hug Do Min Joon, which DMJ refused but Yoon Jae did anyway.
Is this the first printed men’s shirt in this drama or what? Have you noticed how the men in this drama seem to avoid printed shirts in general? Except maybe to use it as an accent to a sweater outfit.

Song Yi’s moping is causing inconvenience in her work. Surprisingly (or maybe not surprisingly), Yoo Se Mi was the one who prevented her from being sacked. Thank the drama land for not dressing Se Mi in another furry piece. Let’s not go there anymore.
Song Yi’s depressed as hell and she’s willing to join Bok Ja in her image suicide. She wants to chop off all her hair but Bok Ja talked some sense into her. Song Yi is still in possession of her fashion faculties though because this trench outfit belongs to the runway.

Song Yi’s laughing her head off with Bok Ja’s Do Min Joon tale – you know the one when she gifted him with origami and Min Joon mistook her for a vendor. She was laughing at that for a while but her laughter turned to sobs.
In comes Se Mi who delivers Song Yi’s schedule. Song Yi asks her if she has a Do Min Joon tale to share. She’s that desperate for more of Min Joon.
Later, Se Mi goes to her room and Song Yi asks her how long it will take before the pain will go away. Se Mi says in her case, it took 15 years to think about Hui Kyung and not feel pain. Song Yi wonders how she’ll go on with her life if it will take that long to get over the pain.
I love what Song Yi’s wearing here. But then again I’m a sucker for tops with volumized sleeves. The shape alone makes for an instant conversation-starter, wouldn’t you agree?
Song Yi’s blouse and skirt are both from Calvin Klein but it doesn’t like it’s available online.
To dull the pain or at least make the moments when she misses him more bearable, she goes to the places they went to alone. Just like the first time she went here, she wore black again.

It’s their 100th day and Song Yi is waiting for Do Min Joon to show up. Do Min Joon indeed shows up but is this a figment of her desperate imagination? Also, this Chanel outfit already appeared in our episode 16 recap so you can get the details there.

The stylists actually copied the runway look to the letter – from the blazer to the tweed dress to the shoes.
Song Yi even looks great in orange. This girl can wear a flour sack and get away with it.

She shares her Do Min Joon hallucination stories to Attorney Jang, who also confesses to having similar experiences.
Song Yi’s dress here is reminiscent to the 60s mod-inspired Lanvin tweed dress she wore last episode.

While Attorney Jang was watering Do Min Joon’s plants, that have all started to blossom again by the way, Do Min Joon seemed to have appeared behind him and called out his name. But when he reached out to him, he disappeared. Figment of the imagination or not, how did Min Joon manage to change outfits?
Yoon Jae has been using Do Min Joon’s telescopes well. He bragged to his month about his recent discovery – an asteroid that he discovered just now and wanted to have it registered. He plans to name it Do Min Joon but it will take 3 years for it to be approved.

Three Years Later:
Yoon Jae finally got his work recognized. His asteroid has been named after his mentor, Do Min Joon and Bok Ja suddenly became his new manager.
Song Yi is back in business and she’s more popular than ever. Her old crew is also back. I’m not too crazy about this feathery ensemble but like I said, she can wear anything and get away with it.
Cheon Song Yi’s jacket is from:
Her shirt is also from Louis Vuitton, her shoes are from Giuseppe Zanotti, her sunglasses are from The Numero, her watch is from Chanel and her earrings are from Didier Dubot.
Hui Kyung also got the new haircut memo. This blow-dried hairstyle suits him better, methinks. He paired up a Givenchy sweater with a multicoloured coat.
Get Park Hae Jin’s Coat:
While they were talking, Song Yi spotted Do Min Joon amidst the throng of spectators. She got up and frantically went to the spot where she saw him but didn’t find him there. She hysterically uttered his name and Hui Kyung finally hugged her out of her hysteria.

It’s awards night but Song Yi’s mind is still on Do Min Joon. She told them she misses Do Min Joon so much and cried her heart out. And no this isn’t her awards night outfit although this cut out dress definitely belongs on the red carpet.
Hello 2ne1’s Park Da Ra! She’s been very vocal about her love for this drama and she finally got to cameo in it! Awesome.
Se Mi is also here wearing a ruffled black dress that did her a grave injustice IMO. There’s probably hundreds of dresses for the stylists to choose from so why let her wear this?
Song Yi totally eclipsed her in this beribboned white dress.
Song Yi’s dress is from Carolina Herrera and her shoes are from Giuseppe Zanotti.
But while she was waving at the crowd, time seemed to stop. Surprisingly, only Song Yi remains animated.
She spotted someone coming closer to her. It’s Do Min Joon looking princely in his Rococo-inspired coat!
They caught up with each other in the middle of the stairs. Do Min Joon places his coat over her shoulders, reminding her to cover up and not show that much skin. Song Yi still couldn’t believe her eyes. She places her hands on Min Joon’s cheeks and wonders if he is real. He kisses her passionately and then time starts again. The spectators are all surprised to see Song Yi kissing someone – Do Min Joon! But abruptly, he vanished again.
Kim Soo Hyun’s Coat is the:

Another change of attire! Song Yi’s really bringing in the heavy fashion artillery now that this drama is drawing to a close. Not to be bested, Do Min Joon also looks great in his striped sweater.
So how did he manage to come back? When his body disintegrated, he was sucked into a wormhole. A wormhole! It took a long time for him to get enough energy to comeback.
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s sweater:
Cheon Song Yi’s dress is from Maison Martin Margiela.
He still can’t hold his form long enough to stay forever but he has been practicing on getting back. Those moments when he appeared in front of Song Yi and Attorney Jang? He really materialized in front of them and not a figment of their imagination.
He also appeared in front of Jae Kyung, fuelling the latter’s dementia even more. How he managed to change clothing eludes me though.
Kim Soo Hyun’s jacket is from:
Siero Unisex Jacket, 599,000 Won
He’s getting better at this. This time, he appeared on earth for over a year and spent it with Song Yi. However, he has to go back to the wormhole to, err, recharge.
Song Yi’s happy, as evident in her choice of pastel-y color in this ensemble. And even when Do Min Joon disappeared, she seems to be ready for it.
Get Do Min Joon’s sweater:
Marni Navy Contrast Sleeve Sweater, $950.00
She said it’s not easy. Do Min Joon’s vanishing without a goodbye isn’t easy. But she’ll take it because she knows he’ll be back.
On another note, I love that blue leather coat! Can she get any more perfect?
Do Min Joon really makes an effort to come back.
Despite the ending having some factual inadequacies, I am contented with it. I wanted them to have a normal happy ending with Do Min Joon becoming human and living a normal life with Song Yi but that would be a mockery to what the drama is about. He’s an alien and there’s no escaping that fact.
Having recently read a fiction book about an immortal being transported to a dimension that is neither here nor there, her essence scattered into pieces and took her years to get back a semblance of form, I can somehow get the wormhole bit. He needs to recharge and that is a flaw they will have to deal with. They got their happily ever after but not the Disney version we’ve all been clamouring for but it’s a happily ever after just the same and we’ll take it!
This drama proves that love comes in different forms and ways. It is without prejudice and it prevails. Even though they can’t be together the way they imagined, they are together in many ways than one. They are content with the moments they have and are consciously trying to make every minute of it count.
Fashion-wise, this drama is perhaps the most fashionable drama I’ve ever seen. Ever! It’s peppered with a healthy dose of high fashion, mostly on Song Yi and it’s a joy to watch.
It’s one of those one in a million dramas where everything is just in it – the chemistry, the acting chops, the villain, the story line and the supporting cast. Even the soundtrack is pretty good. I’m going to have a hard time getting over this drama, if there is even getting over it but I thoroughly enjoyed reporting their fashion. Hope you guys enjoyed it too!
