I’m happy with this news and there is a rise in my interest in the upcoming alien rom-com drama My Man From Another Star with Yoo In Na joining the cast that already includes Kim Soo Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyun in the lead roles. I liked her in Best Love where she played a bubbly second lead who was harmless and only showed some petty jealousy in the negative character department, but loved her in her leading role in time-travel-done-right drama Queen In Hyun’s Man. She is cute beyond words and has that ebullient persona which makes her very endearing. Also addition comes with Park Hae Jin (My Daughter Seo-young).
I think this comes once in a blue moon when I watch non stop, back to back dramas of the same channel and the same slot. SBS is on a roll with giving so many popular shows this year in the Wednesday-Thursday slot: I Hear Your Voice, Master’s Sun and now Heirs which will be followed by My Man From Another Star, which has already created quite a buzz as it marks Jeon Ji Hyun’s return to small screen after 14 years. Kim Soo Hyun plays an alien who came to earth some 400 years back and remained here to finally fall in love with a top actress, played by Jeon Ji Hyun. It’s funny that Yoo In Na has played actress role twice in her previous shows but here she will play our heroine’s rival who is a Harvard graduate and an announcer.
Yunho is in talks to play Jeon Ji Hyun’s fiance but has not confirmed yet. Park Hae Jin will play his elder brother and a second-generation chaebol who leads a mysterious life. Hm. Maybe, he has something to do with our alien hero. That’s intriguing.
My Man From Another Star premieres in December and is written by the writer of You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly and directed by PD of Tree With Deep Roots. A very efficient team indeed.
People were saying on Dramabeans that the Korean fans had put a petition together asking the producers NOT to cast Yunho in the drama, ha ha. I love that!
As to the drama itself, i love the premise, although having Yoo In Na in it reminds me a lot of Queen Inhyun’s Man. Like, a lot. But meh, that was a cute drama and this will hopefully be a cute drama so even if they’re alike, it won’t matter too much.
I know what you mean about the back to back dramas, SBS is having a hell of a year! Good for them!
hahahaha….really!!!! I haven’t seen him act but I know what everyone has to say about him 😉
I know! Queen In Hyun’s Man does comes into picture because of YIN and alien/ actress connection….but…I think here we are having a modern tale…and she is playing a different role, that might make things less similar….
