A new Indonesian TV drama called “Kau Yang Berasal Dari Bintang” is not an authorized remake of “My Love from the Star,” but a plagiarized version of the Korean program starring actor Kim Soo-hyun, according to news reports in Seoul.
SBS TV reportedly said that it had not given the legal publication rights to the Indonesian drama, and therefore can be seen as plagiarism.
“My Love from the Star” is a popular Korean drama portraying the love between a female movie star named Cheon Song-yi and a handsome alien who came to earth 400 years ago. The alien, named Do Min-jun, concealed his alien identity and worked as a university professor.
“Kau Yang Berasal Dari Bintang” is being aired on the Indonesian television network RCTI, and the drama gained a lot of attention for having an extremely similar plotline and characters as “My Love from the Star.”
