“Are You Human Too?” Achieves Highest Viewership Ratings Yet
“Are You Human Too?” has achieved its highest viewership ratings yet and took first place in its time slot.
According to Nielsen Korea, the June 12 episode of “Are You Human Too?” achieved 7.7 percent and 9.9 percent nationwide viewership ratings. These are drama’s highest ratings yet. In comparison, the June 11 episodes achieved 5.4 percent and 6.3 percent. The drama was the only terrestrial broadcasting station drama to air on June 12, as MBC’s “Partners for Justice” and SBS’s “Wok of Love” were canceled due to the North Korea-United States summit.
The June 12 episodes were quite eventful and full of excitement as Namsin the robot showed his humanistic side for the first time, as he helped Kang So Bong find her pendant, an heirloom from her mother. His identity as a robot was also revealed to her, when he became injured in a car crash and she checked his wound.
“Are You Human Too?” is about a robot Namsin III (played by Seo Kang Joon) who takes the place of his human counterpart Nam Shin (also played by Seo Kang Joon), a comatose heir and his bodyguard Kang So Bong (played by Gong Seung Yeon).
Update: This article has been edited to correct the title of MBC’s drama to “Partners for Justice.”
