Wish Upon A Star First Impression

i have currently finished the initial four episodes of Stars Falling From the Sky/Wish upon a Star and the story is getting quite good so far…

Thank god for the fast subbing of viikii that i got to enjoy this series in real time while it’s being shown in Korea…

The start of the series was quite lighthearted although the female lead takes some getting used to because of how her character was portrayed in the beginnning…

She was flighty, ditzy, spoilt and a teeny weeny bit selfish but the whole story lies on how she’s able to turn herself around and how her whole life was changed because of an incident that happened to her family…

By the time episode 2 came around, she had my full sympathy and vote of confidence and can i just say that aside from lighting up the screen with her beauty, Choi Jung Won is one actress that can really act…

(those scenes when she was delivering her lines with a blank expression on her face was awesome… how can someone who does not register any emotion convey such feelings of guilt, hopelessness and sadness? It was even more effective than if she had screamed and shouted her misery because i bet if that is the case i’d only get annoyed… I say, BRAVO!)

I am only 2 episodes into the series and i was already crying buckets… The kids who play her sisters and brothers are quite believable and good too… Ji Bin (Kang San in BOF, Jandi’s brother) is getting to be exceptionally good at acting and this boy would really go a long way if he continues honing his talent…

One more thing that i like about this series is that even if they tackle a lot of hardhitting, really melodramatic stuff in some segments, it still retains its lightheartedness in the succeeding segments…

Unlike other dramas which will leave you feeling depressed because of the series of bad luck that has fallen upon the heroine… this drama makes you want to stand up and cheer for Pal Kang and her brood so that they can make it through the everyday trials that they are currently going through…

It is consistent in bringing in the laughs not just for the sake of it but because through the trials that the lead girl is going through, you can still see traces of her ditziness that is still in her character but you can’t help but see how much she is trying to change her ways too because of the responsibility that fate has bestowed upon her unexpectedly and that is what comes across as funny… her awkwardness in trying out things that are new to her and her efforts in keeping it together although it seems like everything is falling apart around her…

Kim Ji Hoon is HOT but not at his cutest in this series.. However he gets me all bothered and itching all the more to desire him when he’s cold and snobby… (he is really at his most gorgeous in Love, Marriage)…

I love his lines in this series though and how he disregards Pal Kang like she’s a mere blip of annoyance in his life and i am anticipating the moment that would come when he would eat his words and fall for her with great pleasure… hahaha! 

(And of course I love the fanservice in episode 2, when he was bathing in the shower and the water was just dribbling across his spectacularly muscled chest and arms and… let me wipe the drool off my face… wahahaha!)

Shin Dong Wook is such a cutie in this series though and to all of you Junse, Jihoo and Shin Woo lovers… we’ve got another live one in our hands in this character… hehehe!

It is not as evident yet in this first four episodes but i know that he will make my heart ache and long for the time when Pal Kang can look his way instead although i’m still gunning for her to get together with Ji Hoon’s character…

How did i know? This scene did… the money shot of the second male lead slowly falling for the female lead and wanting to do everything in his power to shield her from harm while the male lead treats her like crap and only realizes her worth in the end… hahaha! 

The villain in this series is way evil that i think Moon Chae Won’s mom from Brilliant Legacy and her went to the same evil school… I hate her guts and she has not one shred of morality in her body and i think she’s nothing else but just a money grubbing vindinctive beeyatch… (her daughter seems to be following in her footsteps later on but so far there are still no traces of it now)…

Episode 4’s ending was such a cliffhanger and i can’t wait for this week to see what would happen next…

I also read a lot of comments from viikii saying how this series has the same feel as Brilliant Legacy so to all of those who watched that series and to all others as well, why don’t you give this drama a try because so far i can say, it’s definitely worth your time…
