You Who Came from the Stars: Episode 18

별에서 온 그대: 제18회
Distressed, Song-Yi calls out Min-Joon’s name out loud in fear that he has gone away for good, but he assures her that he is not going anywhere and that he has decided to stay on the planet, with her. Yet her tight embrace comes with a premonition of him lying motionless on the floor, watching his own body disappear into nothingness. He also discovers how his powers start to wane whenever he is with her, having spent the night together in each other’s arms. Talks of marriage between him and her are brought up, with the former getting the approval of both her brother and father. Going home drunk, he unwittingly shows off his powers to Song-Yi’s brother, teleporting them back home through a phone booth. Amazed, he promises to keep it a secret. Hwi-Kyeong’s brother flatly denies every allegation thrown at him, bringing up his ex-wife’s mental condition as a shield. To make matters worse, their father seems to turn a blind eye on everything he does, taking the family’s reputation into consideration first, and ending up disowning Hwi-Kyeong for what he has done. He, on the other hand, discovers a ball pen/recorder implicating his brother in their oldest brother's death.

So this is the advanced honeymoon episode, huh? It is just funny seeing these two try and curb what they really feel like doing because of the circumstances. They had way more risqué scenes in The Thieves, which makes everything here feel so tame it seems all too ridiculous. Despite all this, though, the sad and ironic reality still looms, that this happiness which took him 400 years to find could very well translate to his death. Even so, the newfound philosophy he subscribes to, on how it is the quality and not the quantity of time you spend with the person you care for which matters most, rings loud and clear. Anyway, seeing Song-Yi act like an infatuated high school girls is kind of cathartic, simply because she is reminding everyone that fame and fortune do not really make you happy. No matter how cliché that sounds, you could not help but think that perhaps it is because it is true after all. Anyway, the ET reference is hilarious. It is somehow sad that we are only seeing the crazy side of people, such as Song-Yi’s brother, just now when the series is about to end. He is so nerdy and just as cuckoo as his sister.
