Yoon Hyun-min, Yoon Eun-hye consider robot-human love story Love Like a Person
Huh, this isn’t a pairing I would have thrown together, but I’m willing to see how it works out: Yoon Hyun-min (Witch’s Court) is now in the mix to co-star alongside Yoon Eun-hye (Mi-rae’s Choice) in a robot romance drama titled Love Like a Person.
According to sources from both actors’ management companies, the castings are not finalized on either side, although both Yoons are considering the drama. As with the other two robot dramas we’ve already heard about (Yoo Seung-ho’s currently airing series I’m Not a Robot and Seo Kang-joon’s upcoming Are You Human Too), the actor playing the robot—Yoon Hyun-min, in this case—will be playing a dual role. The male lead is Han Je-woo, a neurosurgeon who reportedly died, but was then “reborn” through a brain transplant that gave him a brain supplied with powerful artificial intelligence technology. That is certainly taking the android premise a step further.
The character Yoon Eun-hye is considering is named Gong Joon-hee, a high school physical education teacher who is 100 percent emotion. She’s stunned when she runs into “the man she believed to be her fate” two years later, but he tells her that he has no memory of having loved her. (BECAUSE HE’S A ROBOT NOW?)
I’m not sure how I feel about this plot setup where Yoon Hyun-min is actually a robot (…cyborg?) rather than having the drama just confuse the heroine with a robot doppelganger. I suppose it’ll play with the question of what it means to be really human, and whether a human body with an AI brain can be considered a person.
Love Like a Person comes from PD Yoon Sang-ho (Saimdang, Light’s Diary) and plans to air in the early part of 2018.
