The Japanese version of “My Love From The Star” is drawing laughter due to poor CGI and questionable acting.
Some scenes from the Japanese remake of hit K-drama “My Love From The Star” were posted to a Korean online community on April 27th, attracting attention.
“My Love From The Star” is a fantasy rom-com depicting a miraculous love story between Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun), an alien man who landed on Earth 400 years ago, and Cheon Song Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun), a famous actress. Jeon Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun’s awesome chemistry and an engaging storyline full of twists helped the drama receive much love both domestically and overseas.
“My Love From The Star” was especially popular in Japan, so the news of a remake made many fans of the original look forward to it. However, the Japanese version of “My Love From The Star” ended up being a disappointment because the CGI scenes are laughably awful.
In the scenes where the male lead uses his superpowers, the CGI effects in the Japanese version are too fake-looking compared to the original, which was released 9 years ago.
Korean netizens left comments:
- “The production cost must have been insufficient. This looks worse than ‘Kamen Rider’.”
- “The quality is even inferior to dramas from 10 years ago”
- “Is this really a drama made in 2022? This can’t be serious”
- “Why did they have to remake it if they were going to do something this cheap and fake-looking…?”
Beside the sloppy CGI, the acting skills of actors Sota Fukushi and Mizuki Yamamoto were questioned as well. Many of the other cast members were also said to be miscast.
