“My Love from the Star” was such a success in China, that Kim paid a visit to the country. His screaming and adoring fans greeted him anywhere he went. Recently, he also visited Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, Singapore and Hongkong, making the 26 year old actor-singer an international Asian star.

Kim Soo Hyun has acted on movies, such as, “The Thieves” and “Secretly, Greatly.” He sings and models, as well, in South Korea, and has been featured as one of most in demand commercial models. Kim’s previous TV series, “Dream High” and “Moon Embracing the Sun” were also highly successful. His global popularity continues to increase as more TV audience watched his drama-comedy TV series.

“My Love from the Star” also stars Jun Ji-hyun who portrays Kim Soo Hyun’s love interest. Kim plays Do Min Joon, an alien, while Jun Ji-hyun plays Cheon Song Yi, a self-centered actress. The story revolves around the development of their romance, which – apparently – seems to be tragic because Do Min Joon has to return to the star from where he came from.
