I must say December is shaping up nicely with a slew of promising new K-dramas on the horizon. One or all of them could end up a disappointment, but at least I can enjoy the good promotional materials while the anticipation lasts before the arrival of the real deal. You From Another Star doesn’t premiere until December 18th but I feel like this drama has been filming forever so hopefully it’s got plenty of material in the can. There was a moment of panic last week when one of the leads Choi Min had to bow out due to an injury, but the production team found a quick fix by asking another male lead Park Hae Jin to take over Choi Min’s role. Which leaves the role Park Hae Jin was originally going to play empty and I wondered if a rewrite was in the works to combine those two male characters who were brothers in the drama. Looks like the drama found another promising solution by casting Shin Song Rok in the role the formerly Park Hae Jin role of the older brother. I haven’t seen Shin Song Rok in forever, I think the last drama of his I watched was Three Dads One Mom, a drama with a great cast but botched narrative the entire way through. He plays goofy like no other but my favorite Shin Song Rok role was in Thank You where he actually stole some of Jang Hyuk‘s chemistry with leading lady Gong Hyo Jin. I think SBS made lemonade out of lemons with Choi Min’s injury so its back on track the drama goes. YFAS released a third teaser trailer today that continues to make the drama look so pretty. Doesn’t hurt that leads Kim Soo Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyun are known for being pretty faces in the industry and here they both capitalize on it completely with him being an alien perfect guy exterior while she’s a Hallyu superstar actress. I wondered before if their romance would stem from some sort of destiny and maybe he was waiting 400 years for her since he first arrived during the Joseon era. This teaser hints at that which makes me excited to see how it all comes together.
Third teaser for You From Another Star:

Someone asks Min Joon why he couldn’t (didn’t) go back when he first got here 400 years ago? Song Yi asks if that person’s face is still familiar? She just wonders when they will meet again, that is all. Min Joon says that if there is a reason to meet, one will meet. Song Yi asks if he wants to know who she is? She is Chun Song Yi! Title card reads: a fate that has waited for 400 years. Min Joon says that this is what people on Earth call fate (destiny).
