You Who Came From The Stars Episode 1 Fashion Review:
You Who Came From The Stars/My Love From Another Star is a story about an alien who came to the earth and never came back. Why he came to the earth and why he didn’t immediately go back to his planet are two of the initial questions that will make the plot interesting.
The drama started with this scene from Joseon Dynasty. This 15-year old girl just lost her betrothed.
The procession was stopped when an alien space craft appeared and hovered above them. The gust of wind was so strong, the palanquin that was transporting the girl was flung off the cliff. Time stopped at this point.
This man came to her rescue. He stopped time and carried the palanquin back to safety.
This guy is Do Min Joon (played by Kim Soo Hyun). He is an alien who landed on earth during the Joseon Dynasty. For some reason, he stayed for over 400 years, easily disguising himself as a human.
Aside from the ability to stop time, Do Min Joon also has telekinetic abilities. He also has super strength and super hearing abilities.
Do Min Joon’s style is very rigid. He is often seen in suits because of his current occupation, a college professor. At home, his style is also pared down, choosing simple and basic pieces like this cardigan, shirt and pants combo. Kim Soo Hyun’s cardigan is from Sandro Homme and his sleeveless inner shirt is from John White.
In Korea, it’s totally acceptable to wear sneakers with suits. It’s also okay to ditch the conventional suitcase in favor of a cute backpack. I don’t know about you guys but I definitely like the idea of sneakers worn with suits.
Kim Soo Hyun’s suit is from Ralph Lauren, his tie is from Sandro Homme.
Cheon Song Yi (played by Gianna Jun/Jun Ji Hyeon) is one of Korea’s hottest actresses. She has been gifted with a timeless beauty and an enviable body. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have the brains to go with it. She is often flayed on the internet because of her tweets and SNS messages to her fans.
As an actress, and a highly-paid one at that, Cheon Song Yi is often garbed in high fashion clothes. She gets first dibs on runway clothes judging from her outfits.

After her fail SNS post to her fans, Cheon Song Yi is causing a ruckus in her management. She seems to be tough cookie, taking all of the criticisms in stride.
I think Jun Ji Hyeon can wear anything – even a sack of flour – and still look like a million bucks. But see her in her most expensive outfit. She looks all glossed out in a laminated leather jacket and equally glossy skirt and a pair of cage booties to tie the look together.

She recently moved in this building and was on her way to her flat when she met Do Min Joon in the elevator. Because he didn’t press the elevator button, Cheon Song Yi assumed he is stalking her. She went on and on about how she will just give him an autograph so he can stop stalking her when they reached their floor and Min Joon stepped out. Song Yi followed him and realized he lives just next door. She apologized by Min Joon brushed her off, bruising her bloated celebrity ego.
Here’s a full look of Jun Ji Hyeon’s/ Gianna Jun’s outfit. If you have those legs, you can wear all the mini skirts you want!

There’s also controversy in the older generations. This group of ahjummas are dining together.
This is Yang Mi Yeon (played by Na Young Hee). She is Cheon Song Yi’s mother. Have you guys noticed how married women in Korea still retain their surname? It’s because they have the option of keeping it or changing it to their husband’s surname. Most opt for the former.
Mi Yeon’s style is very sammonim. She isn’t one to hold back in spending her daughter’s money.
If you’ve been watching the Reply series (Reply 1997 and Reply 1994), you’ll definitely recognize this woman. It’s Lee Il Hwa! I was excited to see her. She looks so different from the mom we know in Reply 1997 and 1994. She plays the role Han Sun Young, the mother of Se Mi (played by Yoo In Na).
Like everything with houndstooth print on it, I love this coat!
Cheon Song Yi’s home is huge! She is rich and all, but does she really need that amount of space when she only lives alone? I’d totally wear this outfit outside my home but Song Yi relegated it to just home wear. She wore this outfit while checking out the nasty comments about her online. Her mom called her to berate her about not telling her that she moved house. Clearly, she doesn’t have a good relationship with her mom.

She does, however, have a younger brother who seems to champion her. Cheon Yoon Jae (played by Ahn Jae Hyeon) defended Song Yi, much to the bafflement of his classmates who doesn’t know he is related to the popular actress.
Cheon Song Yi took out all her frustrations in singing. She sang her heart out in the bathroom. Little did she know that her next-door-neighbor has an elevated hearing ability.

Song Yi’s singing kept Do Min Joon from falling asleep so he confronted his new neighbour about it. But after already suffering from criticisms all day, Song Yi turned the tables on him and vented out all her frustrations on him. Do Min Joon went back to bed, listening to the sound of Song Yi crying next door.
It’s also nice to see Yoo In Na in this drama. She plays the role of Yoo Se Mi, a newbie actress. She only plays supporting roles, which means she spends more time on standby than actually doing her job. Her style seems to lean more towards more feminine pieces.
Yoo In Na’s Fur Coat is from Elfeefur.
Song Yi and her management team watch the news about her frequent absences in the school where she is supposed to be going. I love her edgy outfit. She seems to be a fan of leather jackets because here she is again in one. She softened the tough look a tad by wearing a lace top.

Her hat is from Rag & Bone.
This is Lee Whi yung (played by Park Hae Jin). He just came from abroad. As the second son of Song Yi’s management company, he lives a comfortable life. He and Song Yi are also childhood friends and he often expresses his love for her.
His style fits right in the menswear vibe of The Heirs! His turtleneck sweater, long coat and jeans attire is very current.
He immediately searched for Song Yi. The latter looks so chic in a tartan coat, white blouse and high waisted skirt. She punctuated the look with a pair of knee high boots.
Song Yi was forced to go back to school to curtail the bad reports about her. Aside from her clothes, she also wears the most interesting jewellery. I like understated accessories like this.

Guess who her teacher is? Do Min Joon! She tried to talk him into taking it easy on her but Min Joon can’t be bribed.
Lest you think Min Joon’s personality is all steel, he does have a soft spot for a friend. He has been friends with this lawyer for decades now and he seems to be the only one who knows Min Joon’s secrets.
Lee Whi Kyung, who is oblivious to Se Mi’s secret love for him, proposes to Song Yi. She declined because she is still pining for the guy who saved her life when she was 15.

The guy she was talking about was Min Joon. He had a premonition about the girl who looks so much like the girl he met during the Joseon era and saved her from being run over by a truck. Min Joo still doesn’t know why he keeps on having dreams and premonitions about her.

I love You Who Came from The Stars/ My Love from Another Star so far. Gianna Jun/Jun Ji Hyeon is a brilliant actress. I’m so glad I won’t have to suffer from another doe-eyed female lead actress (I’m looking at you Park Shin Hye). Her comedic take on Cheon Song Yi’s character complemented Do Min Joon’s abrasive personality. Next episode please!
