Yoon Hyun-min, Go Sung-hee cast in new Netflix original
Actors Yoon Hyun-min (Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter) and Go Sung-hee (Ms Ma, Nemesis) have been announced for a new Netflix original drama, You, Holo, and Me.
You, Holo, and Me centers around a lonely woman who, by chance, encounters a personal-use artificially intelligent (AI) hologram that is incredibly loyal. Adding another dimension to the story, the hologram was created in the image of its human inventor.
Go Sung-hee is set to play the lonely woman named So-yeon. To the world, she is a successful careerwoman, highly competent, and skilled at staying ahead of business trends. But she has a secret; she’s been hiding the fact that she struggles with prosopagnosia – a disorder that causes an inability to recognize faces.
Yoon Hyun-min will be playing the dual roles of both the AI hologram and its inventor. The inventor and genius scientist character is named Nan-do while the AI hologram, who looks like Nan-do, is simply named Holo.
I thought we had seen the last of the trend of AI robots and dual AI/human roles after this past year. But You, Holo, and Me does take a different approach by featuring a hologram AI character, which is apparently a first for Korean dramas. I’m certainly intrigued by Netflix’s involvement and it’s nice to see them taking on more and more drama projects. 2019 is shaping up to be quite a good year for shows so far. Here’s hoping it continues!
New Netflix drama, You, Holo, and Me, will be directed by PD Lee Sang-yeob (Familiar Wife, Shopping King Louis) and writing is credited to Ryu Yong-jae (Pied Piper, Liar Game, Time of the Dog and the Wolf).
