You Who Came from the Stars: Episode 10

별에서 온 그대: 제10회
Both Song-Yi and Hwi-Kyeong confront Min-Joon about their suspicions about him but he obviously denies any involvement, and convincingly so because the circumstances simply do not add up to make any logical sense. Hwi-Kyeong’s brother is also hot on his trail, exhausting all the possibilities as to how he could have got down from the 23rd to the 1st floor in less than a minute without using an elevator. Song-Yi is losing money fast, which leads her to sell her luxury apparel and giving Min-Joon’s number for contact. She does not stop there, however, as she drags him around to play her manager and legal counsel. She then starts making excuses to go to his place and realizes that she is falling for him. She eventually admits it to him, but he says nothing. He contacts the prosecutor to hand over Yoo-Ra’s USB, but Hwi-Kyeong’s goons get to him first. Provoked, they end up in a car chase where Alien is lead to a cliff for his orchestrated death. As Hwi-Kyeong’s brother pulls the trigger, though, Min-Joon suddenly disappears only to reappear behind him, telling him once again that he could not kill him.

It seems as though the writers are upping the ante in each episode. Now, Hwi-Kyeong’s brother knows that he is not dealing with a human being that he could bully around after all. What happens next is anyone’s guess. Would they be playing the media-exposes-the-alien card? Although devoid of any superpower, Hwi-Kyeong’s brother is well-connected and could make life difficult for anyone, and he would probably end up doing this next, as well as using Song-Yi against Alien once he finds out about their feelings for each other. Despite the revelations, it is fun how the comedy is maintained, thanks mainly to Jeon Ji-Hyeon who is on My Sassy Girl mode all throughout the episode. Somehow I see a bit of a My Girl era Lee Da Hae in her here. While there is no point comparing the two ladies, I guess they should be applauded for being able to play both serious and funny roles without trying too hard. With ten episodes left, a lot could still happen, and the excitement is not really dying down.
