Kolorful Palette: Lead-up to love sickness [You From Another Star]
by | March 2, 2014 | 47 Comments
Sometimes the moment that leads up to a “big moment” is the one that resonates. I was tempted to draw the actual kiss for the sake of fan service [from Episode 19 of You From Another Star], but Song-yi’s confession felt more powerful and significant. This moment feels like a landmark for Song-yi’s growth as... More »

It’s overrrrrrrr, we can all resume breathing now. You From Another Star ended today, and I admit to going into the finale still wondering how the heck they would get our couple out of their cosmic fix. There are a few spots I think got glossed over, but I’m left with a solid appreciation for... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 19
by | February 20, 2014 | 317 Comments
Way to tug the heart and draw out the tears. While I would say the overall trajectory of this episode is rather expected, the drama drops a few surprises in our laps, namely in showing us just exactly how deep the love runs. Min-joon certainly takes the adage Actions speak louder than words to extremes,... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 18
by | February 19, 2014 | 208 Comments
This episode really made my day: So sweet, so heart-twisting, and so full of random hilarity to take the edge off the pain. That’s a recipe for a fantastic episode. More than the one-off jokes, though, I love that the comedy in this show functions narratively as well as to provide laughs, providing character moments... More »

You From Another Star gets extended
by | February 14, 2014 | 81 Comments
This probably doesn’t come as a huge shock, since SBS has a massive hit on their hands with the intergalactic space-cadet-loves-alien romantic comedy You From Another Star. After waffling on a possible extension and initially leaning towards a special to round out their uneven episode count, the production has now agreed to a one-episode extension.... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 17

Big decisions are made and directions chosen, leading this episode to its all-time high rating of 27%. We also get a sassy cameo from a familiar character (random drama crossover!) to throw in some laughs, not that Chun Song-yi has any trouble supplying those on her own. I do love that even as Song-yi has... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 16
by | February 12, 2014 | 240 Comments
This episode is chock full of adorable, which is on one hand hugely entertaining, but on the other hand also unsettling because giving a couple happy moments with so many episodes left to go means that pain can’t be far behind. Time is ticking in earnest now, and has a way of putting a damper... More »
