 “High Kick Through the Roof” – The drama’s poster that had created many scary stories

When the poster was first released, all but Lee Soon-jae, Kim Ja-ok, Oh Hyun-kyung, and Jeong Bo-seok were processed in black and white, which led to rumors circulating that all but four of them were either ghosts or would die. Of all things, this interpretation was directly related to the controversial ending of the drama, causing more controversy.

As the drama broadcast its last episode, except for those processed in black and white, only the rest of the middle-aged characters had a happy ending. The other cast were rumored that they were supposed to be portrayed as such in the poster to indicate that they were destined to become unhappy. Due to this, the “High-kick’s poster ghost stories” became popular.

– The reason was none other than ActiveX, which was installed on all sites at the time. While IE (Internet Explorer) usage rate was high in Korea, ActiveX did not need to be installed overseas because of the low IE usage rate.

– Due to the growing public opinion on the abolition of ActiveX, the aftermath of the My Love From the Star incident led to negative perceptions about ActiveX. At the Blue House Regulatory Meeting in 2014, My Love From the Star was mentioned and discussions on the abolition of ActiveX continued.

– 10 years later, the two reunited and acted together in TV Chosun’s drama <Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce)>.

– After that, Kim Bo-yeon appeared on MBC’s entertainment show “Radio Star” and mentioned an anecdote with Jeon No-min, “It had been about ten years since we last met. Since we were meeting again after we’d divorced, it felt a bit strange. But I felt that if I didn’t do anything, the production staff would feel more awkward around us, so I went up to him and asked how he’d been doing and asked after his daughter.”
