I’ll go out on a limb and say that upcoming SBS rom-com Absolute Boyfriend will be worth watching thanks to the recently released previews. Leads Yeo Jin Gu, Minah, and Hong Jong Hyun form that watchable triumvirate of good casting and even better than expected chemistry. It’s based on the Japanese manga Absolute Boyfriend (Zettai Kareshi) which has been adapted into a J-dorama (cute) and TW-drama (awful), and generally has the fulfilling a woman’s dreams storyline whereby the female lead gets a perfect robot boyfriend and then a real human hottie who also wants her. Yeo Jin Gu looks both handsome and adorable as the robot boyfriend but it’s female lead Minah that’s really capturing all my attention with her animated charisma onscreen.
