A new Indonesian TV drama called Kau Yang Berasal Dari Bintang is not an authorised remake of My Love From The Star, but a plagiarised version of the Korean programme 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, reports ST Communities.

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.

The gallery features the stars of My Love From The Star, Gianna Jun and Kim Soo Hyun.
