Song Yi remembered the time when she rode the Ferris Wheel with her father. From a far away distance, he could envision the both of them holding hands and rode the Ferris Wheel.

Manager Bum send a letter to Song Yi door and ran away with sadness after he told Song Yi to take care of her health. The letter was addressed to her future manager. It stated that everything that her future manager need to take note about Song Yi. Including Song Yi dislike for the Joseon Dynasty.
I love the scene about Yi Hwa and Min Joon. Perhaps, it is all about timing and fate has it that both of them have to be seperated by death. I was so touched by this pure love. Both of them were so young when this tragedy happened. I was so engrossed and was totally drawn into their characters. I was sad that their scenes came to an end in this episode and their story are not necessary anymore since we got the whole picture. Bravo to this two actors who acted so well!
Song Yi is getting reliant on Min Joon and I love the way Min Joon protected Song Yi. Their chemistry is amazingly good, although Song Yi looks like Min Joon elder sister. It makes sense since Alien technically speaking does not age. Jun Ji Hyun is a gorgeous lady and her acting is surprisingly good and consistent. I knew her as a competent actress since years ago and I think she really tried her best to act well in this drama.
There are many things happening in this episode and I really like the pace of this drama. The scriptwriter is a great storyteller in explaining the story using flashbacks and link it to the present. There wasn't a dull moment and everything is so engaging with a mixture of fun, excitement and loving moments.
Unlike those drama which I watched about fate, the main characters here are not so passive and wishy-washy when it comes to love. Min Joon actually knows that he love Song Yi. Likewise, Song Yi is slowly drawn towards Min Joon. I am glad that their love for each other is progressing well. However, what type of fate awaits them in the future? With a murderer chasing behind them, Min Joon preparing to leave the earth and many more.
Other than the well written Main leads characters, I was drawn into other characters too. Se Min appears to be a bad person but I do pity her at times. She seem to live behind the shadow of Song Yi all these while. Kwi Kyung is quite cute and innocent, despite my liking towards Min Joon. Lawyer Jang and Min Joon friendship is also another highlight in this drama. I really enjoyed those moments.
