Hit Korean series My Love from the Star has created a K-raze for all the things worn by its lead actress.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock – or you're literally from another star – you must have seen or heard of the phenomenally popular My Love from the Star. The South Korean TV hit, which aired from last December to this February, was about an alien who landed on Earth four centuries ago and fell in love with a top actress from this day and age.
The leads in this 21-part fantasy romance were played by Kim Soo-hyun and Jun Ji-hyun (known as Gianna Jun in her TV comeback after 14 years). It's an screen reunion for the two, who first co-starred in The Thieves. Though their scenes in that blockbuster heist flick were brief, I enjoyed their sparring and their chemistry. In fact, Jun, who’s 32, reportedly contacted Kim, 26, to persuade him to take My Love after she heard they were both approached to star in it.
Boy oh boy, he owes her big time!
The show was so big, its finale was watched by more than 28% of Korea's total TV viewers. In China, it's been viewed online over two billion times on websites including PPS and iQiyi, since its debut late last year. Not only that, everything – and I mean everything – that Jun’s character Cheon Song Yi wore in My Love has been selling like hot cakes.
