The robot drama you didn't even know you were waiting for has finally nailed down its lead pair. "Are You Human Too?" will tell the story of a robot created by a chaebol to replace her comatose son, in order to protect his inheritance. Seo Kang-joon will take on the role of both the son and the robot, Namshin-III, who not only has to learn to navigate the human world, but also gets caught up in a bloody chaebol power struggle.
Gong Seung-yeon, meanwhile, will play a tough bodyguard with a heart of gold. She's currently starring in sci-fi drama "Circle", so she's presumably not too far out of her comfort zone with robots. Kim Sung-ryung has also signed on to play the robot's creator/mother.
Given the oddball premise, I can't even vaguely make any predictions for this drama. On the upside, with Seo Kang-joon and Gong Seung-yeon signed on, it will at least be very pretty. Here's hoping they have some chemistry, too.
"Are You Human Too?" is set to air on KBS in the fall.
