Alien from the star turns human

Actor Kim Soo Hyun's alien character, Do Min Joon, will become a human writer in the China version of the K-drama, My Love From The Star, airing on Anhui TV, as aliens are banned on Chinese television. The ending of the China version will reveal that the story of the alien is a novel written by Do.

The South Korean production team HB Entertainment said of the China version: "The editing is out of our hands as we have partly given them copyright permission."
