The Korean TV drama, My Love from the Star, has been a smash hit since it debuted online in December last year, drawing staggering numbers of viewers and social media participants.

By Feb 13, the number of viewers for the Internet program had surpassed the milestone 1 billion mark, according to data released by domestic video sites PPS, Letv, iqiyi and Xunlei.

As of the morning of Feb 28, the number of blog posts about the program on Sina Weibo, China's social media juggernaut, had reached 30,805,009, and held a top spot on search engine Baidu.

The show also brought the popularity of the phrase "fried chicken and beer", due to the heroine's famous penchant for fried chicken and beer when it snows. People could even see snow fall on their digital screens when they typed in the term on Wechat.
