Premiere Watch: My Holo Love
The latest K-drama Netflix original, My Holo Love, features Yoon Hyun-min playing both sides of a love triangle with Go Sung-hee. Our heroine Han So-yeon (Go Sung-hee) has seen success in her career at an eyewear company, but she’s chosen to lead a lonely existence in order to hide a painful secret. An ordinary day turns extraordinary when she dons a pair of glasses and encounters a strange vision–Holo, a cutting-edge hologram made in the image of his creator, Go Nan-do (Yoon Hyun-min). Though he’s based Holo on his appearance, the brilliant inventor and his man-made doppelganger couldn’t be more different if they tried. Holo is sweet and attentive, while Nan-do is prickly and self-centered. So-yeon agrees to be a beta tester for Holo and, despite her best efforts, finds herself relying on Holo more and more. As she and Holo develop a relationship, Holo begins to “malfunction” and seems to develop the ability to feel. Complicating matters, Nan-do finds himself falling for So-yeon the more he gets to know her. It’s a man versus machine romance of sorts, but if you fall in love with an illusion, can there ever be a happy ending?
