Premiere Watch: Are You Human Too, Secretary Kim, Life on Mars

Humanoid robots, sassy secretaries, chaebol bosses, and time-traveling detectives on the way. Yup, just another average week in dramaland.

 

Are You Human Too

Time slot: Monday & Tuesday
Broadcaster: KBS
Genre: Sci-fi
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: I’m so curious to see how Are You Human Too turned out, after months and months of waiting to see when the fully pre-produced drama would ever air. The sci-fi drama comes from writer Jo Jung-joo of Princess’s Man and PD Cha Young-hoon who has second director credits on some major dramas (Unexpectedly Fond, Joseon Gunman, Gaksital), and it looks to be a really fascinating story about androids, human nature, greed, and power. Seo Kang-joon stars in a double role as a chaebol heir who falls into a coma, and the humanoid robot designed to take his place. The drama is about the blurred lines between human and AI—it describes the android as “a robot more human than humans”—so I’m definitely intrigued by the story, which will go beyond simple mistaken-identity hijinks and hopefully paint an interesting sci-fi universe for us to get immersed in.

 

What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim

Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Broadcaster: tvN
Genre: Romantic comedy
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: Yay, PD Park Jun-hwa of the delightful slice-of-life comedies Because This Life Is Our First and both seasons of Let’s Eat is back with a new rom-com. Park Min-young and Park Seo-joon star in a cute power-reversal story about a perfect secretary and her narcissistic chaebol boss who can’t for the life of him figure out why she’d want to quit her job. After nine years of being a legendary assistant to the egomaniac, she decides to quit and search for her own personal happiness, and it sends the boss into a tailspin. He spends the drama trying to determine why she’d ever want to leave him (because his ego can’t comprehend it), and goes on a mission to win her back. Basically, it’s two actors and a director I like, and a funny reversal on a classic rom-com setup—what’s not to love?

 

Life on Mars

Time slot: Saturday & Sunday
Broadcaster: OCN
Genre: Time-slip crime thriller
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: This is a remake of the 2006 British TV show about a present-day police officer who wakes up from an accident and suddenly finds himself in 1973. The remake takes 2018 detective Jung Kyung-ho and throws him back thirty years to 1988, where he encounters a string of serial murders and decides that he needs to solve them in order to return home. He’ll encounter all sorts of mundane fish-out-of-water hardships, from missing cultural references to being frustrated by the lack of forensic investigation tools at his disposal. It’s basically Tunnel in reverse, which makes me interested enough to watch it, and if that’s not enough incentive, it comes from PD Lee Jung-hyo, known for super stylish directing in all sorts of genres (Heartless City, The Good Wife, I Need Romance, Witch’s Romance).

This is the first time in a loooong while where I am actively looking forward to every show airing this week, wow!

Are You Human, Too?’s teasers looked both epic and cute and it has my girl Gong Seung-yeon.

Why Secretary Kim’s teasers are HILARIOUS and Park Seo-joon and Park Min-young already look like they will be a riot, plus it has Because This Life is Our First’s director. The comedy in this is gonna be gold, I bet.

Life on Mars has a great cast and I have fond memories of my dad watching the original when I was younger, although I don’t really remember the show itself.

Where will I find the time?! Good thing the only other drama I’m keeping up with at the moment is Miss Hammurabi!

My another Oppa is back! And there is my girl Go Ah sung too! Yeay! Also, I think I'll give Why Secretary Kim a try too, not a fan of the leads, but I need a good and kinda classic romcom at the moment. Are You Human Too - seems like rating for epi 1 wasn't impressive for a high budgeted drama. But it has been sold to many countries, so the target is more for I'fans anyway.

Haven't heard a peep from Viki or DF about airing Life on Mars. This is the only drama I really really really want to watch. Loved the British version, and love the cast for LOM, esp Jung Kyung ho. If I have to, I'll watch it raw somewhere and make up my own story.

It seems it started happening once Kocowa appeared. But it might be my imagination running wild with speculation. Plus, DF is owned by Warner Bros, which ATT is trying to buy. So I wondered if that also had an impact.

I have a sinking feeling it won't get licensed at all in the US, since it is a remake of a UK/US show. Like you I really really really want to watch it. I keep on hoping I will see it pop up somewhere.

The same with Children of the Lesser God. I really wanted to watch it, but couldn't even find an illegal place w/o subs to watch it. Then I thought maybe Netflix or Amazon had the rights, but apparently not.

Ahhh, Life on Mars is coming! Excited to watch this one and What's Wrong Secretary Kim. I'm not worried about WWSK, but I hope there will be subs for LOM.

It feels like I'm watching a lot of legal/crime thrillers right now (actualy I'm not though xD) or it's the current trend, but I'm ready for a good ol' rom-com to shake things up. :)

The good 1. ARE YOU HUMAN TOO? (KBS2) is available on DF. I plan to watch.
The good 2. WHAT'S WRONG WITH SECRETARY KIM? is coming soon according to Viki. I plan to watch.
The drama I really want to see and maybe 3. LIFE ON MARS (OCN). I know I am sounding like a broken record but OCN dramas seem to be the odd man out in the current state of affairs for kdrama viewing. I am a paid subscriber to Viki, DramaFever, Kocowa, and AsianCrush and probably will not be able to view LOM on a legitimate site, maybe on an *alternate site. I gave up on CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD (OCN) after 4 episodes on an *alternate* site because the subs were so poor.

And I too am with you all the way. Exactly the same situation. I don't know why Children of a Lesser God isn't to be seen anywhere. I just "followed" you to let you know if I can find it anywhere - and vice versa? Like my daughter says: "they wonder why we watch things illegally." Just like you, I subscribe to the same stations (roku?) and the 4 episodes at you-know-where.

Not that excited about Seo Kang-joon in this after my wife Soo-bin showed everyone how this exact role should be done, but I'm still hyped to see it. I love robots. and robots who aren't robots.
Secretary Kim looks fucking gorgeous. It has this feel of an expensive 2015 drama (I dont know what I mean either). hope they do something about the power imbalance. Avoiding any info on this like fire cause a) I'm hoping for a Hawkeye/Mustang dynamic and it's literally what keeps me alive these days

I can't wait for Secretary Kim! I'm also interested in Are You Human Too. Seo Kang Joon's acting can be really hit or miss but the trailers look slick and fun so maybe I'll give it a try. Life on Mars looks fun and it's a crime show and crime is totally my thing, so I'll definitely keep an eye out on where to watch it. I noticed beanies have been talking about how OCN dramas aren't as popular on the legal streaming sites and I agree that subs on "alternate" sites can be downright frustrating.

I'm really excited about "Life on Mars" but i'm unsure if this drama will have any subs or not, i tried watching Children of a Lesser God but had to drop because of the awful google translator quality of the subs.

I’m excited for “... Secretary Kim” and “Life On Mars”, because both of the PDs for the dramas directed some of my favourite dramas (“Princess’ Man” and BTIOFL), so I’m both dramas will be directed beautifully and with meaning, but I’m still on the fence about the writing ✍️

The plot of Why Secretary Kim reminds me of the american rom com two week's notice with Sandra bullock and hugh grant. No complaints though! Excitedddddd!!

I desperately hope Are you human is good. I know at least seo kang joon is eye candy (my gosh his eyes!!) so if im bored i can stare at him for two hours a week. But i sincerely hope that ill be moved.

Finally, thank you to the recappers who will be recapping these two. You make watching dramas sooo much more enjoyable. We appreciate you. Fighting!

The plots are already not that similar. In Two weeks Notice, Sandra was an assistant for a very short amount of time since she just had to have a job and I think she was originally a lawyer. Secretary kim has been in her job for very long and I'm looking forward to following her journey in finding her other passions. But yeah, Park Seo Joon is going to be just as insufferable as Hugh Grant. LOL

Woo the legal dramas are out (was watching all 3 but now I'm going to stick with Ms Hammurabi)

The drama I'm looking most forward to is Life On Mars because of it's incredible trailers and OCN's success in its previous remake Mistress. It's just got such a fun, intriguing premise!

I'm also going to tune into Secretary Kim because the premise is once again hilarious and reminiscent ot 2 Weeks Notice (Sandra Bullock + Hugh Grant). I'm hoping the drama doesn't lag in the second half.

I'm still unsure of Are You Human Too. I guess I'll check how others feel about it and then hop on.

I must admit I hadn't heard of Life on Mars - so of course, I googled it last night and somehow ended up on a site with the BBC first season - episode 1. And down the 'rabbit-hole' I fell.....
It is intriguing as I remember 1973 clearly and so wanted to see if it was as I remembered it. But then the BBC show takes place in the UK, not Oregon. Still I'm going to watch more.

I went to bed wondering what it would be like to meet someone from the future. Would I believe them?

So, thanks a lot Beanies for sending me down a new rabbit-hole of dramas!

It gets better. Life on Mars is followed by a sequel series, Ashes to Ashes, set in the 1980s with a new cop (criminal psychologist, I think?) falling back in time. Both are excellent.

Yeah, Wed-Thurs dramas have been doing great lately but this will be the first rom-com in the slot. It'll be interesting to see how it fairs!

The things you mentioned might give it a bit more of a draw than the other tvN romances. And BTLIMF did fairly well in the Mon-Tues slot so if the PD can give a rom-com with substance again, it could do well.

I was just listening to the radio play of RUR by Karel Čapek and it looks like the script writers made a homage to this inventor of world "robot", maybe people will get interested in this masterpiece of world literature. I briefwatched the first episodes and was surprised that parts of it were filmed in Czech Republic. Just was shocked by the almost god like appearance of SKJ in between of all those ordinary Czech folks and tourists ;-)

Robot stories are right up my alley. I love sci-fi and the potential conflict of considering artificial intelligence as "life" too. And I love SKJ. 💗 Also, Dr. Ye happens to be there too. The cast looks great in general and the production sleek. So tonight I'm watching Are you human too? and fingers crossed it will be as good as the teasers look.
The other dramas also look good. But unfortunately I don't have time now for anything else. Hopefully they will turn out to be good. I want to have a nice selection of dramas to binge later during summer vacation! I already added My Mister and Ms. Hammurabi to the list. 😄

I think I read the human comes back and the "robot" doesn't want to give up the position. This is so intriguing with so many possibilities. Didn't you think they made the robot so much more a sympathetic character? And as I said, he's doing a great job acting.

Well, I have a thing for underdogs, and Nam Shin III is the one that will likely lose everything to his human twin if he comes back. The robot is so precious, I'm sure I will cry a river if they make his mother to abandon him in order to choose the human boy.

Every time I read about the premise of Secretary Kim, I think of Two Weeks Notice LOL

The more I think about it, the less I think they're alike. Sandra Bullock is the head of Hugh Grant's Legal Dept, not his assistant, and I think she sort of gets tricked into going to work for him, and it's only for a short time. They spend the whole relationship at odds professionally because she's a big lefty liberal who wants to help poor people and he's basically a Trump. Although I'd love it if the kdrama brought in politics, the preview looks like what PMY wants to leave over is so that she can have a personal life.

Well, okay, then. I just started Are You Human Too and I really really like it, mostly with the start of the 2nd episode.
How is it that Koreans do such a great job making sympathetic characters?
It's gone from a kdrama drought to a freakin' flood.

What's Wrong With Secretary Kim is a done deal for me. Park Seo-Joon and PD Park Jun-Hwa working together is going to make a gem of a drama! And I've definitely been missing rom-coms in my life. I thoroughly enjoyed Signal as well, so I'll probably be watching Life On Mars! I'm so happy this week's dramas finally aired I've been waiting for soooo long.

When i read that the PD for What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim also did Because This Life Is Our First and both seasons of Let's Eat, I legitimately made an audible sound of joy. So I'm definitely all in, and I was already down because I love Park Seo-joon.

Are you Human Too?
I was watching and after 20 mins switched to another show, will get back to it later. Do they really believe a mom would have given up so easily? Her father apparently kills her husband, threatens her son and she thinks it's better to just leave him??? With the killer grandpa? There is no law to protect her? These Mob CEOs are so boring and absurd.

Those were exactly my thoughts after the first 20 minutes. I will go back and finish the episode (honestly) but I watched this far and then stopped to make a cup of tea. Seriously.

Right! You actually got further than I did and stopped watching right after the lecture and then the scary man appeared with dad’s cell phone. I didn’t think the repartee between the kid and mom was natural, sincere, or funny. It looked rehearsed and I would NEVER tell my kids that I would love a robot more than I would love them, even in jest.

Agreed, the kid was way too young to have that kind of ironic conversation, she even tells him his father loves her more. Until that I was just considering that as silly "smart kid" fake scene, after she left him for about 15 years I just had to switch to something less crazy.

I thought that using your ex-gf's face for your robot in INAR was creepy but using her child's face in that presentation was far worse. And especially having him sitting there watching it?

I just watched the first 15 minutes of Sec Kim raw and, you guys- just in case we didn't get it that he's a self-centered narcissist, Park Seo Joon's character lives IN Kim Joo Won's house (from Secret Garden)! I laughed so hard.

It was, lol. Except different interiors which I guess would be a soundstage.

Yes, just the living room was the same I guess. And the sort of lagoon outside, at least so far. I can't wait for the first recap, I loved it!
