I'm Not a Robot

MBC 2017

Kim Min-kyu (Yoo Seung-ho) lives an isolated life due to a severe allergy to other people. He develops extreme rashes that rapidly spread throughout his body once he makes any form of skin contact. Jo Ji-ah (Chae Soo-bin) is a woman who is trying to make it in life by creating her own businesses. However, after an encounter with Min-kyu, she ends up pretending to be a robot in place of the supposed Aji 3 robot. The Aji 3 robot was developed by Ji-ah's ex-boyfriend, professor Hong Baek-kyun (Um Ki-joon) and his team. The robot was meant to be tested by genius Min-kyu, however an accident caused the robot's battery to malfunction. As Baek-kyun modeled the robot after Ji-ah, the team ends up recruiting her to take the place of Aji 3.

    > Can A.I and DeepLearning heal broken hearts or Are they meant for destruction of Human Kind .. Terminator This is one of those fluffy, easy-watch dramas that are easy on the plot but amazing on the acting. The story is unbelievable, almost nonsensical, but the actors pull it off and so well that you can't help but admire their acting. Although, the overall concept is kinda crazy, the plot itself is very well written. The punches are great and well on time. The romance will not give you any intense satisfaction. Instead, the romance is sweet and innocent and fluffy. Some scenes are hilarious. STORY ------- The story focuses on the two main leads and their daily interactions, keeping the story simple and linear. However, that does not make it boring, as seeing their relationship grow in real time was what I enjoyed most in the process. Although this is a rom-com ; it does have a melo downturn in the second half, so be prepared for some angst ; the pacing was a bit off in the last several episodes. Sometimes they would deliberately drag the plot for an episode to end in a cliffhanger then being next episode 10min to come to the cliffhanger. This took a toll on the plot development, causing the ending to be too rushed because there were many things left to resolve. However, the chemistry between the characters will still keep you anticipating for the next episode. The story is not without clichés or plotholes, and while you may judge the realisticity of the story [spoiler] by asking “hey, how is it possible for him to not know how to distinguish between robot and human??”[/spoiler] , I would say it depends on what you expect from watching this drama. Since this is a sci-fi/fantasy rom-com, its main goal is to present a funny, light-hearted story that does not necessarily have to follow the principles of reality, as long as it is internally consistent and effectively delivers what it wants to deliver. And I think this drama did an excellent job at telling a beautiful story about how bonds are formed, and how love could make you recognize a person’s soul no matter how they may change. As long as you overlook the basic assumptions that the story is founded upon, it is an enjoyable story. CAST ------ Coming to the cast. I am not particularly fond of Chae Soo Bin looks , but this drama definitely changed that. She was perfect both as the robot Ah Ji and the street smart Ji Ah. First of all, Yoo Seung Ho gave a stellar performance; he was believable as a loner and I could relate to his pain ... Cast was well chosen and fit their roles A LOT – one of the major reasons this drama was well-received is because of the likable cast that keeps us wanting for more. I loved how the Santa Maria research team and the leads were like a real family that cared for each other wholeheartedly. Every member had distinct personalities that made them memorable. As for the villains, they were mainly there to establish the bond between the two leads (and to showcase Aji 3’s intelligence). I was looking forward to the push-pull brotherhood tension between Min Kyu and Yoo Cheol, but sadly it wasn’t developed. I wish the love lines of the side characters were talked about more as well. Overall, the characters could have been explored in more detail, but since I happen to not be the type of audience who likes side characters and side stories, I am already satisfied enough with my devotion to the two leads. In terms of casting, they all fit their roles very well and I will always remember them as these roles. OST ----- There’s not much to say about the OST. All the songs match well with the sweet atmosphere of the drama.Perfect amount of chirp and serious. RE-WATCH -------------- This show doesn't have much rewatch value once the plot is unvieled.Although the cast have done a wonderful job in keeping it interesting ; I has already dropped few series ( My Girlfriend is Gumiho , Fight My Ghost and Black etc... ) before i started this and its amazing that i watched this at one-go breaking my drop juggernaut... OVERALL ----------- I can’t say this drama has the best plot, but the chemistry between the characters and the heartfelt messages made up for it. liked how they made a contrast between characters who think using logic (i.e. the scientists, Aji 3) and characters who think using feelings (i.e. Ji Ah). it shows that emotional intelligence is also a type of intelligence and, although it is often left unseen, it is a quality that’s not inferior to logic. The deeper message – human emotions is something that cannot be mimicked using logic, it is something that can only be felt by humans.I would say the main selling point of this drama is the sincerity of emotions that the characters share and the heartwarming message. I was definitely touched by the genuine emotions of Ji Ah. She made me understand that sometimes things don’t have to be practical or logical to be meaningful. It’s the heart of a human that makes them transcend robots, and the heart of a human that can make a seemingly useless object become meaningful. Overall, it’s a drama with sincere characters that are able to touch people’s hearts using their dialogue. The chemistry, characters, atmosphere, and Yoo Seung Ho’s expressive acting have made it work. It’s been a long time since I’ve been so invested in a drama. This drama reminds me of why I started liking Korean dramas, and I’m certainly glad I didn’t judge a book by its cover and gave it a try. This is one of the dramas that I will always remember even after a long time. It has a special place in my heart.

    I was watching this drama while it was airing and found it to be nice. I liked how the storyline was new to me. There were comical scenes that had me laughing so hard and some that had me smiling. I enjoyed the overall story of this drama but didn't really love it. There's just something about it that I found enjoyable but not worth the high rating.

    It was quite enjoyable from start to finish. Not too heavy and not too light. It had its cute moments and the actors did a mostly good job.
