I’m not going to look a gift drama gods casting in the mouth, and who knows it may actually all come together in the end. Yoo Seung Ho has confirmed his second drama of 2017 with the MBC romantic comedy I Am Not a Robot, a complete 180 change in genre from his last drama being sageuk Ruler: Master of the Mask. Fans of Yoo Seung Ho will also get to experience another first for this young actor, his first romantic comedy K-drama as I Am Not a Robot casts him as a stereotypical chaebol who melts through love, with the twist that he falls for a robot girl. Ahahaha, I can make really inappropriate jokes involving rich men with inanimate objects resembling women but Zettai Kareshi opened the door to robot-human love with the robot being a guy so the gender police can rest easy that both genders get to be equally objected. The drama comes from the PD of W: Two Worlds and She Was Pretty with the second screenwriter of Shine or Go Crazy.
In talks for the leading lady is Chae Soo Bin, who I don’t like or dislike but so often gives off no screen presence or the screen presence of a screechy plotting second female lead though in recent year she has been elevated to leading lady role. I kinda hope she drops out and Yoo Seung Ho gets a more charismatic female lead, but then again I’m watching Robot to get my Seung Ho as a chaebol with an allergy to humans fix. The drama premieres in late October after Hospital Ship on Wed-Thurs.
