Round one fight between user and maker begins for I’m Not a Robot
I’m definitely becoming more hyped for upcoming sci-fi rom-com I’m Not a Robot as I see more promos for it. In the latest teaser, a battle breaks out between the robot’s owner—the man who has everything—played by Yoo Seung-ho (Ruler–Master of the Mask) and her maker, a genius engineering professor played by Eom Ki-joon (Defendant). Aji-3 is the first world-class humanoid robot, played by Chae Soo-bin (Strongest Deliveryman).
The drama is primarily centered around the first love of Yoo Seung-ho’s character, who is the perfect man with one fatal flaw. He has an allergy to humans, which is so severe that he has to bundle up in masks and gloves if he ever decides to venture outside his home. Unfortunately, his condition doesn’t allow him to develop any close human relationships, so when he meets the female android Aji-3, he begins to fall in love with it. But actually, Aji-3 is not a robot at all. A young entrepreneur named Jo Ji-ah was recruited by her former boyfriend (and coincidentally the maker of the real robot), played by Eom Ki-joon, to impersonate his machine. It’s a love triangle just waiting to happen!
In the teaser below, James Bond music plays in the background as Aji-3 asks for her first command. Eom Ki-joon, heading his formidable team of robot researchers, starts off with a light command: today’s weather, but Yoo Seung-ho quickly switches her to friend mode. Her demeanor completely changes from politely utilitarian to adorably sincere as she gives the weather report.
Eom Ki-joon changes her back to user mode again, and they go back and forth changing Aji-3’s mode until she steams up in frustration, and both sides are taken aback by her very human outburst, confusing and frightening everyone. A cute little robot rolls on the screen displaying an error message.
