Can you believe My Love From The Star aired seven years ago? This K-drama about a stranded alien with superpowers and a ~hilariously entitled~ actress made us laugh and cry sooo much. We can't even listen to the song "My Destiny" without *tearing up*! We know you're missing the cast as much as we do, so here's what they're up to these days:
