From the discription of the show, less Sci Fi more Mork and Mindy.

Both equally valid pursuits if you ask me.

From what I experienced last time I was in Korea, they truly have advanced past us in fried chicken technology.

When the country was too poor to afford oil and beer?

FTFA: In "My Love From the Star," a romantic comedy about a Korean actress and her extraterritorial boyfriend...

Extraterritorial? Is that what we're calling "extraterrestrial" now, or is the guy just not from their city?

With a name like that, you have to keep your chin up:

OK, so the title of the show, according to WSJ, is 'My Love From The Star'.  The main character has a boyfriend who is 'extraterritorial', again, according to WSJ.  Subby calls the show SF, which is not stated in the article.

So:  Does WSJ not know the difference between 'extraterritorial' and 'extraterrestrial'?  Did subby see extraterritorial and read extraterrestrial?  Is this really an SF show?

Poor attention to detail somewhere along the line...

My Love from the Star (Hangul: 별에서 온 그대; RR: Byeoreseo on geudae; literally You Who Came from the Stars) is a South Korean television series about an alien who landed on Earth 400 years ago in the Joseon Dynasty, who then falls in love with a top actress in the modern era.

Cool!  Thanks for the info!

So, sorta like a Korean version of the UK's 'My Hero', then?

'Hero's premise was that all Superheros are aliens from the planet Ultron.  The title character, 'Thermo Man' (played by Ardal O'Hanlon of 'Father Ted') was trying to catch up on just what Earth culture was all about, while trying to land a girlfriend.  His secret identity ('George Sunday') was a rather clueless doofus with an Irish accent who ran a health food store, IIRC.
