Minah considers taking lead in MBC’s I’m Not a Robot
I didn’t know what to expect from Girl’s Day Minah, but her splash debut through Beautiful Gong Shim was a refreshing surprise. I found her to be extremely relatable in her daily struggles and even in that hilarious wig, which is why I was pleased to hear that she’s considering a new drama project, I’m Not a Robot, which is about a young man who falls in love with a robot.
She’s still only in the early stages of reviewing the script, but I hope she confirms because I think she’d be awesome at this role: The character is described as a young woman who has strong athletic skills but a low IQ of 94, and while inside she’s feminine, nobody sees that. She grew up knowing everything about cars because her father owned a mechanic’s shop, and she plans on opening up her own establishment. She barely entered an athlete’s college using her judo martial arts because she’s no good at studying. But her optimistic personality helps her get along with people very well, and she’s the type of person who can’t pass by an injustice unnoticed. Lastly, although she can’t cook, she’s No. 1 at eating and drinking. Wow, that’s exactly the type of girl I’d want to be friends with.
The question is how her character works with the premise, since it doesn’t sound like she has anything to do with robots, cyborgs, or androids. The articles state that she’s up for a leading role, so perhaps there’s another lead, or maybe we’ll get a birth/creation secret somewhere?
MBC’s I’m Not a Robot will air in October, following the end of Hospital Ship, Ha Ji-won’s upcoming medical drama.
