Last year, tvN scored a smash hit with “Reply 1997,” transporting us to a much simpler decade infused with nostalgia, growing pains, 90s pop culture and fan girls. The drama premiered with little hype, but gained recognition through word of mouth, becoming a sensation and breaking the 6% ratings barrier, considered to be high for a cable drama, and that’s not even counting the rebroadcasts. In fact, Episodes 15 and 16 of “Reply 1997” was broadcast on tvN, Olive, Mnet, OCN, Onstyle and Ongamenet simultaneously. Set in 1997 Busan, “Reply 1997″ was the coming-of-age story of a group of high schoolers who grow through their own share of teenage troubles. Set in high school, the kids were faced with teenage problems such as the hopes and dreams for the future, the mystery of girls and the era of first loves.
We’ve reached the halfway point of “Man from the Stars” and the show continues to astound viewers. Episodes 9 and 10 focus largely on present day events, exploring the topics of love, money (or lack there of), and sinister plots. Song Yi must confront her growing feelings for Min Joon, while at the same time, Min Joon already worries about what consequences his future departure will have on Song Yi. Jae Kyung continues with his murderous plans, but Min Joon isn’t content with letting Jae Kyung have his way. Be ready for some dramatic confrontations!
With Episodes 20 and 21 “Man from the Stars” has officially come to an end. The final two episodes aired amongst great speculation about possible endings and the delivery was filled with largely satisfying emotions. That being said, saying goodbye is never easy, no matter if you are an alien, an actress, or an invested viewer.
Key Plot Developments:
Min Joon Explains His View on Death
During his 400 years on Earth, Min Joon has seen death countless times, but it is only now that he has experienced love that he understands the point of trying. It’s the moments in life that are the most important. Even with the certainty of death, we can still live happy lives.
The new SBS drama “Endless Love” has completed their first script reading.

Producer Lee Hyun Jik (“Warrior Baek Dong Soo,” ”Tazza“) and writer Na Yeon Sook (“East of Eden,” “Age of Ambition“) were also present.

During the crazy excitement that was KCON, Soompi had the opportunity to sit down with drama blogging superstars girlfriday and javabeans, the lovely ladies behind Dramabeans!
We asked them some really, really hard questions (sorry about that!) but I think you’ll all enjoy their answers! Check out the full interview below.
Okay, first things first, what is your favorite show this season?
javabeans: Pshhhh…. long silence…

After months of hiatus, the Soompi “We Got Married“ recaps are back with a look at the current husbands of the show: Song Jae Rim, Hong Jong Hyun, and Namgoong Min. Now let’s take a look at the lovely ladies, Girls’ Day‘s Yura, Kim So Eun, and Hong Jin Young, who have the – honor? Pleasure? Burden? – of being their virtual wives.
Last week, the families of “Dad! Where Are We Going?” continued their trip with their new foreign family friends.
Yoon Hoo, his father Yoon Min Soo, Ahn Jung Hwan, and his son Ahn Ri Hwan have settled into their place for the night in Seoul with Shinard and his son Chan. Before going to sleep, they order the two ultimate Korean late night delivery snacks: pig’s feet and chicken. And then they dig in.
Chief Oh and Dong-shik freeze and stare at their unwelcome new team member, who smirks at their reaction and notes Geu-rae’s impressive luck in his position, considering his lacking credentials. He chooses to settle in at Dong-shik’s desk while the rest of Sales Team 3 remain stone-faced.
Chief Oh requests a new team member, but Manager Kim refuses to comply. He says that Chief Park is a great addition to his team, since he’s had a great record in the company. He tells Chief Oh to compromise and just prioritize work.
Lee Seung Gi has signed on to play a character with seven personalities. He will play the leading role, or should we say roles, in the upcoming MBC drama “Kill Me, Heal Me.” It is one of three upcoming dramas about men with more than one personality.
The other dramas are “Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde,” which Hyun Bin will star in, and “Dr. Frankenstein,” which Kim Soo Hyun may star in. Both of those characters only have one alternate personality. But Lee Seung Gi gets to play seven distinct personalities inhabiting one body.
This is a really dense episode, packed with character revelations and plot twists that are actually revelatory and truthfully twisty, and even though it calls for every ounce of attention you can dedicate to it, it doesn’t fail to reward you for time well spent. So much happens this hour that it’s near impossible to sum it all up here, suffice to say that the time to reunite our dearest and most craziest of villains with his missing marbles has come and gone, along with any shot he might’ve had at redemption. He’s positivelyunhinged now, as opposed to just being functionally certifiable before. Don’t think there’s a difference? Wait and see.
