You Who Came From The Stars / Man From Another Star Episode 8 Fashion Review:
Last episode was literally a cliff-hanger (with Cheon Song Yi nearly hanging over a cliff). Everything seems like a blur but here’s what really happened.
Jae Kyung’s minions strapped an unconscious Song Yi in her car and run it, directing it towards the cliff. Do Min Joon went back to the hospital to find Song Yi’s room empty. He sharpened his senses, no easy feat considering he is trying to locate Song Yi in the whole city and beyond.
He managed to locate her and stopped the car from running over the cliff just in time.
A dazed Cheon Song Yi stepped out of the car, expecting to see Do Min Joon but Min Joon was nowhere in sight. She got a call from Hui Kyung, who immediately responded to her distress call.
Hae Kyung showed up and took Song Yi to police station to report what happened. They ran into Do Min Joon, who pretended he was at the station the whole time. Song Yi stared at him dubiously, probably wondering if she was hallucinating.
At this point, I’m no longer surprised by Hui Kyung’s choice of outfit of the day. If he isn’t in the office, he is usually sporting a turtleneck knitwear, a coat and a pair of jeans.
Get Park Hae Jin’s Knitted Top:
Park Hae Jin’s coat is from:
Do Min Joon, on the other hand, echoed Hui Kyung’s attire, sporting a turtleneck sweater of his own and the popular Chris Christie coat that is fast becoming a winter staple in Kdramas these days.
Jae Kyung asked his minion why he failed in killing Song Yi. The minion recounted the story and told him about the guy who appeared out of nowhere and attacked them.
Song Yi is back in the hospital and Hui Kyung is raising hell about the deplorable security there.
In Do Min Joon’s home, he is treating the wounds he got from stopping Song Yi’s car. Looks like he missed his usual black and grey garb.
What happened to Song Yi’s previous grey coat? She changed her outerwear into this black pleated swing coat.
Cheon Song Yi’s Jacket is from:
Maison Martin Margiela Black Pleated Coat, $4074.00 (out of stock)
She found her home trashed and in a disarray. Someone ransacked her home. Do Min Joon heard her scream and began calling out to her to open the door.
Do Min Joon invited her to stay in his home instead. Cheon Song Yi noticed the bandage on his hand and asked him where he got it. Min Joon just shrugged off and said he got it from an accident.
Here we can see Cheong Song Yi’s coat better. I kind of like the volume the pleats add to her silhouette.
Hui Kyung sought out Se Mi and talked to her about Song Yi’s near miss. Se Mi, as expected, couldn’t care less and frowned while Hui Kyung went on and on about Song Yi.
I might be more than a little irritated with Se Mi right now but I like her choice of dresses. This is one way of giving your dress a new look: wear a button down shirt under it. And to make it winter-appropriate, wear tights.
Yoo In Na’s Dress is from:
Get Yoo In Na’s Brooch:
Swarovski Valora Brooch, £79.00
This might be the most unglamorous you’ll ever see Song Yi in. She borrowed her clothes from Do Min Joon, expecting the latter to fall under her charm.
Parka jackets really work so well in giving outfits that needed boost. Take it from Do Min Joon, who wore it for a trip to the market to get Cheon Song Yi her spoon worms.
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s Jacket:
Ziozia Down Jacket, 239,000 Won
No Do Min Joon in sight. Song Yi noticed it’s snowing outside and got looked around Min Joon’s place for an umbrella.
And when did Song Yi suddenly have access to her wardrobe?
Cheong Song Yi’s cardigan is from Chanel.
Her searching led her to find her missing Jimmy Choos! Needless to say, Do Min Joon got an earful when he went home. Not even the spoon worms saved him from Song Yi’s tirade.
So what really happened to Song Yi’s dad? Here he is stalking Yoon Jae. He got hit by a passing motorcycle because he was so busy following Yoon Jae.
After savoring the last bite of the spoon worms Min Joon got for her, Cheon Song Yi offered to wash the dishes. She ended up breaking Min Joon’s precious antique plates instead.
I like Min Joon’s striped sweater here. It looks he had this on when he wore the parka jacket.
Song Yi also insisted on cleaning Min Joon’s already spotless home. She ended up breaking up his antique vase instead. To prevent her from breaking any more stuff, Min Joon hugged her from behind.
Here is Song Yi’s formula for a domesticated outfit: a white shirt and a pair of denim pants.
Cheon Song Yi’s shirt is from Balmain and her pants are from SIWY.
Kim Soo Hyun’s Sweater is the:
8ight Seconds Stripe Raglan Sweater, 34,900 Won (sold out)
The detectives are still not closing Yoo Ra’s case. They found out that Yoo Ra visited a facility where she signed a will, probably the same will they originally thought was her suicide note.
What happened to Yoo Ra’s flash drive? It turned out Do Min Joon kept it. After discovering the bear, he touched the flash drive and immediately got a premonition of someone dying while clutching the flash drive. Could be Song Yi.
Hui Kyung visited Se Mi at work. Is it urgent? No. They began talking about how Hui Kyung read Se Mi’s interview where she talked about her first love. Hui Kyung advised her to go and call the person she loves and confess to him already just like what he has been doing to Song Yi.
I’m curious to see what Se Mi has on underneath this cute pink outerwear. She does wear the cutest dresses. Hui Kyung, on the other hand, I’m having trouble appreciating. That knitted sweater is cute but I just don’t like it with that checkered coat.
Yoo In Na’s coat here is from Escada.
Se Mi heeded Hui Kyung’s advice and called the person she loves, which turned out to be him. No surprise there.
This definitely cemented my belief that Song Yi’s mom has a penchant for embellished tops. She again decided to go over the top by wearing it with a purple fur coat when she visited Do Min Joon to asses his managerial skills.
Song Yi finally returned the comic books. While there, she also asked the advice of her friend about what she thought is a serious case of hallucination. Her friend just told her to go see a doctor.
Edgy Song Yi comes out to play once again in this fur-hooded vest that she teamed up with what looks like a leather jacket and a pair of ripped jeans. Those mirror sunnies punctuated her outfit.
Cheong Song Yi’s fur vest is from:
Mr & Mrs Furs Waistcoat Army (variation), €3882.00
Her inner leather jacket is from Maje, her sunglasses are from Gentle Monster, her bag is from 21 de Faye and her pants are from SIWY.
The doctor told Song Yi that the reason she has been hallucinating about one man is because she has been relying on him too much. So he advised her to establish independence.
Song Yi took the doctor’s advice to heart and started telling Do Min Joon about being independent. She rocks oversized coats and robe-ish outerwear like no other. That hooded coat over the hat? Chic!
Cheong Song Yi’s bag is from:
Cheon Song Yi’s coat, shirt, hat, scarf and boots are all from Hermes.
Min Joon, on the other hand, also decided to look a bit ediger that day in this moto jacket.

PLAC Jeans Berlin 479, 110,670 Won
Get Kim Soo Hyun’s Sneakers:
Moschino Sneakers 55970, €133,00
His sweater is from McQ Alexander McQueen.
Since Jae Kyung’s plan to kill was foiled by Min Joon, his dinner date with her and Hui Kyung pushed through. As expected, Song Yi is dressed to the nines in an embellished dress that she teamed up with a black coat and a pair of boots.
Cheon Song Yi is in head-to-toe Prada.
Cheon Song Yi’s Boots are the:
Cheon Song Yi’s Earrings are the:
Prada Saffiano Leather and Crystal Earrings (sold out)
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Clutch:
After being pensive during their dinner, she suddenly blurted out about suspecting Yoo Ra’s death is not caused by suicide. She told them about the flash drive she found and the video she watched. Hui Kyung suggested they turn it over to the police but Jae Kyung said they should wait and gather more information. Hui Kyung looks spiffy though in his blue tweed suit. He just can’t be pried away from his turtleneck sweaters.
Do Min Joon went out with the attorney and was reluctant to go home because no one is waiting for him. The attorney pointed out that no one is waiting for him at home for a long time now and that didn’t bother him.
He went home early nonetheless only to find Song Yi already at home and preparing chicken and beer. Do Min Joon refused to drink because of an incident back in the Joseon Dynasty.
Song Yi changed from her embellished outfit to this black and white printed frock that she wore with a cropped sweater.
Get Cheon Song Yi’s Dress:
Being the 15-second girl (meaning she can captivate the viewers’ hearts in just 15 second), she challenged Do Min Joon to a 15-second challenge where she will do some commercial-worthy poses while he looks on. We all know Min Joon is more affected by her than he lets on. Much to Song Yi’s surprise, Do Min Joon pulled her forward and kissed her. Your imagination isn’t running wild this time Song Yi.
