The battle for robot control supremacy is on as the latest preview for MBC rom-com I am Not a Robot pits human-allergic Yoo Seung Ho against mad scientist Eom Ki Joon. That they are jostling to program Chae Soo Bin in different robot modes is even funnier considering she’s not even a robot to begin with. It’s a girl pretending to be a robot then having to pretend to be a robot learning to be a girl. That was quite a handful to write but I’m praying Robot is the true K-drama classic style rom-com I’ve been waiting for, with characters that are weird but not wholly detestable as so many are written these days with eccentricities that veer into being awful peeps. This preview is wacky and cute, with Eom Ki Joon’s scientist brigade ordering Chae Soo Bin to be in operation mode while Yoo Seung Ho wants her in friend, going back and forth until she either loses her temper or short circuits.
