My Love From The Star 《来自星星的你》Review

是的,我被骗了,所以我要上诉。所谓上诉,就是写字。

对了,我说了很多次,但是我还是要声明:我是不看韩剧的,我也不哈韩流,更不懂韩星。因此,我看的比较中肯,写的比较随心。

本来是为工作必须看这部剧,在制作人打电话给我之前,我根本没有听过这部剧,因为我心如止水,已经远离娱乐圈八卦和最新消息,没有报纸周刊也没有收费电台,只专心一致听五月天的CD。对于制作人的 “最近非常红的韩剧《来自星星的你》” 这个问题,我停顿五秒后还是无法理出头绪,我想当时制作人肯定傻眼:这是什么样的特约写作人?连这点都不入流?所以就乖乖说好我去看,我相信勤能补拙。

五天没睡好之后,我把二十一集都看完了。我中肯,所以我没有深深地被金秀贤给迷住(sorry, 之前连他是谁都不懂);我中肯,所以我只被全智贤骗倒,哭得哗啦啦。

故事是外星人爱上傻大姐,八个字讲完。

当然,二十一集内多得是故事:两人本是冤家,但因为是隔壁邻居所以自然接触多,加上两人有前世姻缘,两人不断出现在对方的世界里,所以在阻碍中还是被命运作弄,彼此相爱。虽然听起来并不新鲜,可是编剧把故事写的轻松温暖,不唐突不勉强,每个角色的台词均有自己的特色,不会一味重复和肤浅,这是星星的特色之一。就算是科幻爱情片,却没有一面倒科幻或是只有爱情。外星人就像人,几百年后习惯了人类生活,根本就有科学根据;外星人想留下来,但是却没能如愿,也是说得过去。加上这位外星人在地球已经生活了四百年,很多台词中都穿插着一个外来者看地球人的成长和毁灭的感慨,多出了不同的层次。傻大姐傻到garlic和大蒜都分不清,却自强不息不随波逐流,靠努力和好运气不断冲出瓶颈,虽然不常见,但你我身边一定都有这样的强人。两人KMT撞地球擦出的火花,当然不能不美丽。科幻故事合情合理,爱情之间有高有低,铺陈转折也都细心,全都拿分。连负心女二号、痴情男二号、好朋友律师(这个配角非常重要,他的角色设定很有新鲜感,是唯一懂得外星人身份的人)、大坏蛋哥哥到爱钱老阿妈的角色设定和台词全有有头有脸出入有分寸,根本不会是来补场次而已,这点又让我为它加不少分,我觉得这是很多台湾偶像剧没做好的其中一点。(这部韩剧也是偶像剧啊,但是还是下心思写好台词)

戏剧和音乐不同,音乐可以没有文字也能交流,可是戏剧就是要剧情和对白才能精彩,所以那是很重要的一环。话说当晚大结局在韩国播出时,其中一个网站能看到直播,但是却没有字幕,所以根本无法明白演员们到底在讲什么。当然,按耐不住的我们还是会想要第一时间看到结局,虽然结局刻画的还算明显不用对白也大概能猜到,但是没有了对白,感觉就没有到位。第二天把有字幕的大结局再看一遍,才哭得稀里哗啦,完美收场。

另一点我觉得刚刚好的是哭戏 : 应该哭时就来一场,不会无谓一直加让人倒胃,倒是笑点非常多,很让人开心。偶像剧,除了爱情凄美,很多时候也应该让人开怀大笑的。

还有,剧情另一可取之处是故事前进度,每一集都有合乎逻辑的新方向,不会一直俳佪在同一个点子上画圈圈,或是同样的桥段换汤不换药,让人越看越灰心。你在看某些偶像剧时会不会有这种感觉:又来?四十集的剧本,有三十三集是在同一款的误会上打转,让你连泪水都没力气流了。这是我看到最多的偶像剧款式,也是没有水准的编剧。《来自星星的你》除了编剧,拍摄手法和剪接也干脆,还有那前奏和后续的讲述法也不错。

我觉得《星星》故事结尾可以被接受,并不唐突。听说网上热烈讨论兼反对金秀贤的角色没能固定留下来,并没有大团圆结局和幸福美满家庭加小孩等等,让剧迷相当失望和抗议;我其实并不如此认为,也不认同。外星人加地球人的孩子,请问要如何编排才能让所有人都满意呢?那是一个非常头痛的问题。留在身边幸福的方式,其实真得不是只有一种。女主角在很多场次的台词都有提到遇到了这个外星人和彼此相爱,已经是她三十年生命中最美好的事情,因为那正是她所需要的,也就如我们生活中,不同的人对不同的事物有不能理解的偏见,这些转折和选择性的说人生故事方式,都是让我喜欢和佩服《星星》的原因。

两位主角对戏,一开始就已经精彩。金秀贤的气场完全配得上熟女全智贤,没有半点被压倒,还能和她相对较劲,互相平衡,这应该是选角监制的好经验。我想剧组在选角前看了两人之前的对手戏来猜测两人的互动(两人合作过<The Thief>),但是事实上两人的chemistry根本就是一百分加一。金秀贤美男子算不上,但是气势很强,演外星人倒是演活了。也许正是因为他不是美男子,所以不会和全智贤抢镜,反而辅助她变得更美丽,让爱情更好看。

全智贤突然间变了我的女神。这位大姐是豁出去的演,演的让人相信她压根儿就是这种人。剧里童星出身的她不快乐,但是好强也寂寞,需要借着万人迷这个虚荣宝座让她感觉自己还是被爱的。实情是,我们都不过如此,必须借着自己对社会有贡献,或是被人拥戴着来感觉存在。《星星》里的笑点很多都集中在全智贤的角色上,她也把那些特点发挥在对的情绪上,不温不火,并不会让人感觉太刻意去营造这个角色。大姐苦戏演的够苦够甘,展现出一个傻大姐如果断肠的话会是如何一面。有一幕全智贤在心碎之后想要挽留金秀贤向他求婚而录了一个影片,结果是她的一贯作风,在如此伤心之时她选择了随着Bruno Mars的轻快歌曲跳舞,既好笑却又如此让人怜惜倍感心酸。

也许因为我对这部剧没有期待,进而之成为容易满足。话虽如此,但是我却是在从头看了两遍,细心想了之后才写下这些想法的。随你怎么想,反正这篇文字是在我的博客内。好奇的话,就去看看吧,看看穿着各大名牌服饰美到掉渣的全智贤应该也值回票价了。

PS: 我想大家都觉得戏剧的取名是以金秀贤的角色来做主题,因为他就是《来自星星的你》里的外星人;可是在第七集中,男主角读着一本书,并不断重复着牵引他的一句话:“你就像是没有月亮乌黑天空中的星星,闪闪发亮。” 那,星星这个词,是不是也代表着女主角在男主角心目中的地位?《来自星星的你》,可不可能是在形容女主角呢?

9-Kim-Soo-Hyun-You-Who-Came-From-The-Stars-Episode-5-Review

<My Love From The Star> is also known as <You Who Came From The Star>, currently the hottest Korean drama all around Asian. Last week it just ended with a bang over episode 21, leaving me with some thoughts.

I am by no means a fan of K-Pop, I have not watch a Korean drama for at least 10 years and cannot tell the difference between one actor from another. I had to watch this drama for work purpose. I thought I was going to be bored, but again, never be too sure.

The story is nothing new per say, but yet it was not mandate and boring. An ET has been living among human for 400 years, just when his date of departure is around the corner, fate has it that he met a woman who completely knock him off his feet. It is definitely a love comedy with so much to watch.

First up the storyline was nicely designed, nothing too illogical and out of control, it moves on smoothly from one episode to another, with surprises all over. Though this is not the first time we have seen ET-human love story, it is by no means following the standard practice. (At least this ET has been here long, and how he has been living among us is already a fun plot) Secondly I think the script is well written, given that most of the drama has lame and shallow conversations between the characters, the scripts of this drama is considered well written, with thoughts given to each characters, including supporting cast. Many times what our ET friend has to say towards the human being is very interesting, as he has seen so many generations. For instance, there was a scene explaining why our ET friend has is unwilling to use his superpower to help people, is because he tried to do so when he first landed, but the people had taken advantages and did not learn from the mistakes. Typically human. So yes, I like how all the little true stories in the plot.

Next, I would say the chemistry between Kim Soo-hyun and Jun Ji-hyun is explosive, and the key to success. Jun Ji-hyun is a matured actress, and is already in her thirties. No one would question her acting, but for a none K-Pop fan, I have yet to watch any of her work. I like how she portrays her character in this drama – a lonely and not-so-smart top actress who meets trouble everywhere. Most of the jokes was on Jun’s characters, and I must say she handled them very well. Kim Soo-hyun is a young actor, with few well-known projects under his belt (again, I have never seen those), but acting along Jun, he balances the yin and yang between them, and created a beautiful lead for the actress and love story. Finally, the fashionista around Asia went mad for this drama with a reason – the styling is incredible, with all the big names sponsoring, Jun looked every inch a princess, and was wearing Stella McCartney and Chloe resort collection as sleepwear! The location set is beautiful, and everything is leaning towards precise planning. What an effort for a drama series.

I must say it was really quite fun to watch this drama.
