The Plot (without spoilers):
“I Am Not a Robot” tells a story about a rich and arrogant young shareholder of a company named Kim Min Kyu (Yoo Seung Ho) and an intelligent but poor girl names Jo Ji Ah (Chae Soo Bin).
Kim Min Kyu doesn’t care anything in life because he has everything he wanted except lovelife and family. He has a secret and weird illness. He is allergic to human contact. His human interactions are limited to his doctor, butler and CEO of his company and also his childhood best friend, Hwang Yoo Chul. He prefer his robotic possessions like vacuum cleaner as his daily companions rather than humans.
Jo Ji Ah or President Jo is the opposite of Kim Min Kyu. She’s striving hard to succeed and hope she makes an invention that will be useful for people.
My short and honest plot:
When I thought it was another chaebol Kdrama but it was not. There is a sci-fi, comedy and little drama in the storyline so we are truly served with the best “feels” while watching.

Supporting Roles and their familiar faces:
“I Am Not a Robot” Facts:
Jung Dae Yoon directed the series. His past works include “W” and “She Was Pretty.”
Chae Soo Bin almost did not take the role but she said that it was “too attractive” to pass up. It was also the first time she played two roles simultaneously.
It was Yoo Seung Ho’s first time to star in a romantic comedy series. Known as “Little So Ji Sub” in Korea because of her brooding look that’s perfect for serious roles, he now proves that he can take a lighthearted character. He also shared that he was the happiest when filming the series.
