 “Man from the Stars” Hits the Right Notes in Episodes 1 & 2

The new SBS drama “Man from the Stars” kicked off on December 18 taking over the Wednesday/Thursday time slot from Heirs. I will be covering this fantasy rom-com for Soompi on a weekly basis. Please be sure to check in and share your thoughts about this drama!

Summary

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!

This week brought two more solid “Man from the Stars” episodes. Do Min Joon’s past connection to Chun Song Yi is slowly being revealed, creating a rich backdrop to complement his present actions. Song Yi remains a strong, yet struggling character as she deals with a variety of issues ranging from sickness to even a murder case. I love how despite Min Joon’s commitment to noninterference, he keeps getting dragged into Song Yi’s complicated life. Not even an alien can resist fate!

The Fairy and the Woodcutter: tragic love, Korean-syle

The Fairy and the Woodcutter is one of the most popular of all Korean folktales. Almost all children in Korea grow up reading a version of this love story. The story has three well-known versions that differ mainly in plot length. The following is a synopsis of the full version of the folktale.

There once was a poor woodcutter who lived with his mother. One day, he helped a wounded deer escape from hunters. As a show of gratitude, the deer informed the woodcutter of a nearby pond where fairies came down from the heavens to bathe every month. The deer pointed out that the woodcutter would be able to marry one of the fairies by hiding the fairy”s winged clothing-her only means of flight. He could then come to the rescue of the stranded fairy. The only proviso: everything was to be kept secret from his wife until they had at least three children. With these instructions, the woodcutter was successful in taking a fairy as his wife, and they had two children together. Content and happy, the woodcutter now felt comfortable enough to prematurely come clean. He showed his wife the winged clothing. Upon seeing her wings again, the wife could not help but feel a pang of yearning for home. She decides to return to the heavens, taking the children with her.

K-pop and Biases: When You Lose One Written by Alolika On July 25, 2014

I went through a bad breakup recently. It involved a lot of crying, whining and pleading at the other end but I had made my decision. His questionable past, poor articulation skills, invisibility on variety shows and undivided attention to his owl-eyed friend compelled me to take the final step. I am sorry Kai but things had gone too far. You are just too boring.

And having no new bias take his place, I have officially lost all purpose in life. So here is an attempt at mapping stages of mental degradation while consuming K-pop having lost a bias, and hopefully, at least some of it will strike a chord. (Please don’t tell me I am the only dysfunctional one).
