“Are You Human, Too?” is about an ambitious robot Namsin III (played by Seo Kang Joon) who falls in love with Kang So Bong (played by Gong Seung Yeon). Namsin III takes the place of a comatose heir, Nam Shin (also played by Seo Kang Joon). The drama is raising anticipation not only with its exploration of themes like artificial intelligence and what it means to be human, but also because of its leading man Seo Kang Joon. Here are three reasons why you’ll fall in love with Seo Kang Joon as the AI robot Namsin III.
1. His perfectly built face
Robot Namsin III stands out in the drama for his handsomeness. With his good looks, no one hesitates to question if he’s human. Though everyone turns around and stares at him as he passes by, they do so not out of suspicion but in awe. He definitely could have been in a relationship or two, but he is actually quite innocent when it comes to love. Namsin III is quite the boyfriend of anyone’s dreams.
2. A smart and sexy man who can handle big data
Not only is he good looking, but he’s got brains too. As a robot with artificial intelligence, he can do so much. By accumulating his knowledge and experiences, there’s nothing he doesn’t know. Rather than merely searching up the nearest eatery like any other robot, with his data, he can find one that perfectly matches your location, price range, and preferences.
3. A robot with more emotions than your average human
Namsin III is a special robot, in that he analyzes expressions on people’s faces, empathizes with their emotions, and gives an appropriate reaction. He has nerves of steel, literally and figuratively, as he is unshaken in the face of anything, and he also makes the occasional adorable mistake. For instance, when So Bong cries, he tells her, “It’s a rule that if you cry, I have to hug you,” and gives her a warm embrace.
“Are You Human, Too?” will air its first episode on June 4.
