An allergic to other humans man falls in love with a robot girl, or maybe not a robot based on the title I’m not sure, but this set up feels right up the alley of a shoujo manga from Japan. Japan did do the popular girl human and boy robot Zettai Kareshi which for a long time was bandied about for a K-drama adaptation with a male lead who recently got in a scandal so maybe not having that happen was a good thing. Instead K-dramas are doing their own robot romance this fall with MBC drama I am Not a Robot starring confirmed leads Yoo Seung Ho, Chae Soo Bin, and Uhm Ki Joon. Two out of three leads I love isn’t bad, and frankly Chae Soo Bin has the potential to grow on me in the right role much like I grew fond of Shin Se Kyung and Oh Yeon Seo in the right drama for their acting styles. I am Not a Robot is slated to air Wed-Thurs after Hospital Ship.
The PD of I am Not a Robot directed W: Two Worlds, She Was Pretty, Cunning Single Lady, Arang and the Magistrate, and was one of the three PDs behind my my fave The King 2 Hearts. Writing is screenwriter for Shine or Go Crazy who has more movies under her belt as this is only her second K-drama work.
