My Love From The Stars to many people may be mediocre, or perhaps think there is nothing great about it. However, to many others and I, it is definitely special and still is. I can only say because it was super cute (of the written characters and the way the story was told) and it is a ‘true’ romance comedy.
The success of this drama, regardless of its flaw, has got to be uri OTP – Do Min Joon and Chun Song Yi – perfectly portrayed by Kim Soo Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyun. Their combination work for us (ok, me!) because their interactions and skinship were natural. They were comfortable with each other and has exploding chemistry from day 1 (episode 1), which makes it convincing on-screen for their characters’ developing relationship. And then of course both happen to look so gorgeous physically even though they clearly has a wide age difference; however, you see none of that when they are together.
As we know, their first kiss started off as a soft peck on the lips that Song Yi stole from Min Joon (so cute!), and it slowly developed to many other kisses (the most I’ve seen = I’m happy) and finally, this one last kiss where we actually get to see both in action (and deep into it too!). Let’s face it, actresses in K-drama don’t usually kiss back, and we should be grateful if they don’t look like they were forced to kiss a toad. So the kisses in this drama and especially the last one, is worthy for us to bring out the soju (figuratively speaking) and throw a party.
Some believed there was tongue action, but I don’t think so – purely based on the aspect that they are professional actor/actress, and it would be inappropriate to tongue someone at work. In Kim Soo Hyun’s recent fan meet, the host mentioned ‘tongue kiss’, and it was made a big deal because Kim Soo Hyun did not deny it; however, we wouldn’t know for sure because the interpreter may not have properly translated ‘tongue’. Anyway, with or without tongue – I am very sure it was a very satisfying kiss for the viewers, and was a suitable reunion kiss for the finale (Rant: this is how Faith should have ended… *still sulking over it, yes*).
The kiss, however, felt short because the camera changes scene from their beautiful kiss to shocked faces and the media flashing at them. Therefore here is a BTS fan cam and some pictures from Cagiya who participated in filming the last kiss scene, and I thought I will share with my fellow Stars lovers.

[NEW!][HD]Fam Cam: The Last Kiss
I just want to ask how many versions of this kiss is the director hiding from us? With the obsession and love I have for the Stars couple, I really wish I could hack, or steal the tapes to the whole drama; lock myself up in my room for a day or two and cut out all the scenes I love! ❤ Needless to say, this version is over the top, sizzling hot and sweet. I’m not a shipper of the double Hyun and I don’t care if they really are attracted to each other in real life or is into their characters. I just want to praise them for their professionalism, and for giving me such a lovely memory of a drama couple so natural on-screen. *Thumbs up*
BTS Pictorials of Min Joon & Song Yi
Both of them really stood out from the crowd with what they were wearing that day: Soo Hyun in that Balmain coat and Ji Hyun in that white dress. They complimented each other like lock & key with one dress in all black and the other in all white. Them – deep in their characters are match made in heaven. If you ever want to purify your eyes, they are definitely the top candidates to purify your eyes with, LOL!

Okay, here is why I said I’d feel like a byeontae to some people but I have every (good) reason to adore these captured moment. If you hate it or think this is inappropriate, then turn away now!
BTS Pictorials of Kim Soo Hyun
That night was freezing cold for the casts and crews, especially Jeon Ji Hyun. That Balmain coat may look warm, but it doesn’t look like it was thick enough because Soo Hyun still needed another layer of wind-breaker. He was wearing it in between takes, and waiting for his turn. He was seen standing at the same place, but always making some small movement. At one point, his assistant brought him portable heaters to keep him warm.
I have actually composed and completed this a week ago, but decided to hold it off and concentrate on delivering the drama review first; as the review serves as a proper post regarding the drama, whereas this is dedicated to fangirling / saluting the couple’s chemistry. I guess I just feel like spazzing about it. *shrugs*
Nonetheless, I only hope this post brings a little smile to everyone who loved the drama as much as I did. Wish you all a happy weekend! ^ ^
