Yoo Seung-ho and Eom Ki-joon to bumble in love together in I’m Not a Robot
Well, this is certainly a departure from his last role as an insidious murderer. After turning down Four Men, Eom Ki-joon (Defendant) has confirmed that he’ll be joining the cast of sci-fi romance drama I’m Not a Robot as a robotics professor. Yoo Seung-ho (Ruler—Master of the Mask) plays the main character, a man with such severe allergies that he lives in a sterile environment, devoid even of humans. Thus, he’s never had the experience of falling in love until he meets a girl robot one day.
Eom Ki-joon is set to play the man who is instrumental in Yoo Seung-ho finding love in the female robot. But since the genius robot professor is a bumbling novice himself in the ways of romance, I can only imagine how many funny scenarios will result from the two men trying to learn the ways of women through this robot. The female lead will be played by Chae Soo-bin (Strongest Deliveryman), whose character is described as a young woman with a great depth of mechanical knowledge (due to her father who runs a car center) who plans on opening her own business.
I can’t wait for this to happen. Eom Ki-joon is a great casting choice for any drama because he’s such a versatile actor. But the way he’s described here, as a professor who is super competent at everything except love, takes me back to when I first discovered him in Dream High. In that role, he was the perfect balance of earnest, sweet, and completely clueless about any of the love hints Lee Yoon-ji threw at him. And while I enjoyed his performance as a creepy charismatic killer, I’m hoping I’ll see that cute naive side of him again.
MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama I’m Not a Robot will premiere in November after the end of Hospital Ship.
