An extra terrestrial mission lands on Earth during Joseon Dynasty. Their role is to observe this planet and study the faune and flore without intervening in the life of humans. One of them, gets involved in the life of a 15 year-old widow. Being injured, he cannot meet his companions on time and is left on Earth for 400 years.
That was entertaining enough I liked the story but I’m not so sure about the choice of the two leads. Jeon Ji Hyeon and Kim Su Hyeon reunite 2 years after ‘The Thieves‘ global success on the big screen. I don’t feel the chemistry is there 100% despite all the work. Maybe it’s just me. Anyways, it was still entertaining. You probably have noticed Na Yeong Hee (Gloria) as Song Yi’s mother and Yi Il Hwa (Answer Me 1994) as Se Mi’s mother. Jeon Ji Yeon‘s performance made me cringe my teeth at times. She was so annoying, really good acting. There was many known faces in there and the appearances of Suzy and Kim Su Ro, to name only them.
