Ooooh, me likey very much. The first teaser preview is out for the upcoming SBS alien-actress K-drama You From Another Star. Starring current It-leading man Kim Soo Hyun and movie actress Jeon Ji Hyun, the story revolves around an alien who has been living on Earth for 400 years and in the year 2013 is living the life of a university professor. The casting plays with Kim Soo Hyun’s baby-face and explains it away as an old soul inside a perpetually youthful visage. In the preview, he appears to have supernatural powers which in typical alien lore is just his natural state which translates into extraordinary powers here on Earth. The teaser doesn’t tell us much about the story but is instead a series of scenes beautifully rendered culminating in Kim Soo Hyun leaning into Jeon Ju Hyun and telling her “I will protect you.” That’s a pretty intriguing way to pique my interest if we’re talking the alien version of The Bodyguard. It definitely does the job of showing me this noona-dongsaeng romance has the requisite sparks and the two leads’ chemistry in The Thieves wasn’t a fluke. I’m pleased with Kim Soo Hyun’s hairstyle after his last modern drama Dream High required him to turn into a country bumpkin. Jeon Ji Hyun is always the epitome of fabulous and it’s going to be a visual treat to see her always dolled up to play the role of a top Hallyu actress. YFAS doesn’t premiere until December 25th but it’s nice of SBS to release an itty bitty short teaser to whet our appetite.
