Actors Seo Kang-joon (Entourage) and Gong Seung-yeon (Circle) are confirmed to be the main leads of robot-human romantic drama Are You Human Too. Seo Kang-joon was last seen in tvN’s Entourage which was shown last year while Gong Seung-yeon is racking up compliments on her acting for her role as Han Jung-yeon in the current Sci-Fi drama Circle. This is the first time that the two stars are working together on a project.
The romantic drama boasts of an intriguing plot: a human falls in love with a robot that is made to look exactly like and temporarily replace third generation chaebol, Nam Shin. The story begins when Nam Shin meets an accident and falls into a coma. Gong Seung-yeon’s character, Kang So-bong, is then hired as a bodyguard to protect Nam Shin’s replacement robot called “Nam Shin – III”. Seo Kang-joon is up to play as both human Nam Shin and robot Nam Shin – III.
“We hope you will look forward to seeing the romance between the two actors who have great visuals and acting skills,” KBS Media stated.
Joining the two actors are Kim Sung-ryung and Yoo Oh-sung who will take the role of Nam Shin’s mother and rival respectively. Kim Sung-ryung’s character excels in the field of artificial intelligence. Having been estranged from her son, she works as the lead researcher for a secret team of international scientists that works to develop a human-resembling android. She is further described to be intelligent and intensely focused when working. On the other hand, Yoo Oh-sung plays as a top director in the chaebol group in which he sees Nam Shin as his greatest rival in becoming the company’s head.
Are You Human Too is written by Jo Jung-joo (The Princess’ Man) and directed by PD Cha Young-hoon (Uncontrollably Fond). The filming for the drama will begin in the last week of June, but no announcement has been made yet on its time slot and premiere date.
