Ever since Shinhye was young, when she used to sit on a hill watching the night sky with her father, she has always admired the stars and dreamed of what is out there in the universe. But she never expected that her dreams-and nightmares-would come true. As a beautiful and intelligent 17-year-old, she attracts the attention of Donghoon, whose uncle works with the Ministry of Science. As it happens, Donghoon's uncle is in charge of finding a home for a visiting foreigner...who has ESP! The teenaged girl, Sarah, has left her home in America to get away from all the strange looks people give her because they don't understand her powers. Sarah is accompanied by her guardian, Redion, a handsome, long-haired young man who makes Shinhye forget all about Donghoon. The girls get off on the wrong foot when Sarah endangers Shinhye with her ESP tantrums...but they eventually become close friends. Shinhye has barely come to terms with the existence of ESP when a UFO lands near her home! The shocks just keep coming as she learns the truth about Sarah and Redion, who the aliens are after. Will Shinhye survive the alien invasion? Her exciting adventures into the universe are just beginning in this fantastic series!

Seventeen-year-old Shinyee Yoo and her astronomy professor father share a fascination with the universe and the paranormal. One day at school the discussion turns to extrasensory perception (ESP), and most of the students say that they would be fearful of people with ESP. When classmate Donghoon Suh overhears Shinyee saying that she would treat people with ESP with respect, he thinks that her home will be the perfect place for a very special houseguest. Soon, bratty teenager Sarah Hwang and her constant male companion, Reidon Gastani, move into the Yoo residence while Sarah is undergoing scientific testing on her ESP. Shinyee's family begins to experience more paranormal events than they could ever have imagined. The characters are all imperfect people: no one is completely sweet or evil. While there are hints of romantic crushes, this sf manhwa focuses on supernatural aspects. By the end of the volume, the reader wonders what is Sarah's real nature and who is really looking out for her best interests. Originally created in 1987, the art, while pleasant, looks dated. Recommended for teen collections where sf manga/manhwa is popular.

This story is twenty years old. It first appeared in 1987 and has seen various editions. Now translated for the English market it is easy to see why it is worth publishing again. Shinhye is a student that loves to gaze at the stars and listen to her father's stories of the constellations. She is one to espouse belief in such things as ESP or life on other planets to her classmates. This eventually leads to her being asked to house another girl with her family for a while, a girl who has ESP. Strangely, this foreign girl, Sarah, has a handsome companion, Redion, who is more of a servant to her. As time goes on the relationship between these two is very suspect as is their reason for traveling. Imagine Shinhye's surprise when a real UFO lands in the middle of the city! We know the occupants of the craft are mingling among the humans, searching for a girl – and you can guess who that might be. This is a multi-layered story with all the elements of solid science fiction. There is a whole alien civilization out their and the fact that some have come to Earth is neither an accident nor an outreach for friendly contact. The lead characters are students so we see the normal activities, conflicts, and angst of normal kids. Another thread is Shinhye's relationship with her father. The mystery of Sarah and Redion, their relation and origins is the true basis of the story. They know more than they can reveal and soon the lives of all these players will change forever. The story moves with deliberate pace. Kang takes time to develop the characters and the plot. The art is pleasant to the eye and well structured. It is a fun story with mystery and suspense. It ends in a good spot to leave us anxious for more. What do the alien's want with Sarah and what are their plans for Earth? It's only just begun.

    The artwork is quite dated, but it's reasonable seeing as it was originally created in 1987. The story itself captivate me and I can't wait to read more. I liked how the series is showing more and more of the characters' thoughts because many of them are mysterious and I want to know more about them. Which leaves me craving for more chapters to read, I hope it updates soon.

    At first I was a little turned off by the art style, but the story is really interesting. There are so many different elements, and all of the characters have a lot of depth. I want to know more about Mr. Radion and his past. He seems so mysterious. I can't wait to read more!

    quite a fantastic fantasy, the society that the author portray seem so probable that i can believe that there is other life forms besides us earthlings. I can't wait til the next chapter. the suspense is getting to me. i thought since the story went on hiatus that i couldn't get back into the plot and characters, but i am mistaken, it didn't take me long back-tracking a few chapters to refresh what has happen so far and then continuing to read the updated chapters, to have me craving for more updates. Thanks for being back on track Netcomics.
