The Cast of Dark Melo Hundred Million Stars Falling From the Sky Celebrate Drama Wrap and Release From Intensity


I thought I was in the mood for a dark twisty melodrama like Hundred Million Stars Falling From the Sky (The Smile Has Left Your Eyes)and for the first few episodes I was indeed hooked on the ride. But it gradually screeched to a halt as I never connected with the two leads emotionally despite loving the chemistry of Seo In Guk and Jung So Min, and cared about the decent supporting characters especially Park Sung Woong‘s older brother role who seemed to be caught up in horrible stuff not of his own making or desire to be embroiled in. The ending of this J-dorama remake was as dark as the original so I applaud the guts to stay true to the story but the ratings never quite materialized with K-viewers, averaging between the high 2% to the low 3% which is on the lower side for hitmaking cable network tvN. In the end the only emotion this drama elicit was an outpouring of pity crossed with cringing at the never ending heaping on for the male lead.
