It was a rough year for Korea’s premiere girl group as soon after Sooyoung and actor Jung Kyung-ho, Tiffany and 2PM‘s Nichkhun and leader Taeyeon and Exo‘s Baek-hyun were all also revealed to be dating. Hyoyeon was charged with assault by her ex-boyfriend, and then the unthinkable–Jessica was booted from Girls Generation.

When Do Min Joon landed on Earth 400 years ago, he didn’t realize how much he would dislike living there. He doesn’t age, making it very hard to build relationships with other people, and his super abilities like extra sensitive hearing and the power to stop time don’t seem to do him much good. It’s understandable that over time Min Joon has developed a very cynical outlook towards human life. How will this viewpoint change as he interacts with the loud and opinionated actress Chun Song Yi? As fate would have it, these two already have a deep connection, a connection which spans over 400 years. Get ready for a romance that is out of this world!
