“Are You Human?” is going to be a quality sci-fi drama Korea has never seen, like how “Descendants of the Sun” redefined Korean war drama. At yesterday’s press conference, we learned so much about the cast—Seo Kang Joon, Gong Seung Yeon, Lee Joon Hyuk, Park Hwan Hee, Kim Sung Ryong, and Yu Oh Sung—and what they thought of this upcoming drama, which premieres Monday. Watch the highlights below and check out the five things we loved from the press conference!
1. Seo Kang Joon is pretty confident this’ll be the next blockbuster
He predicts ratings will be 15.5% or higher. Let’s make that happen!
2. Seo Kang Joon found inspiration from Steven Spielberg’s A.I.
“For reference I watched a lot of films like ‘Bicentennial Man’ and ‘I, Robot.’ ‘A.I. Artificial Intelligence’ by Steven Spielberg was especially helpful. The boy in the film did so well conveying innocence, doubts about his existence, and feelings of love,” Kang Joon recalled.
3. What will happen of the love line?
Robotic Nam Shin 3 (Seo Kang Joon) and his bodyguard (Gong Seung Yeon) fall in love in the most mysterious ways. Both actors were born in 1993, and say they received great help from each other on set. We can’t wait to see them together on screen!
4. Dr. Aurora is torn between her two sons
Actress Kim Sung Ryong plays a mother to both human and robotic Nam Shins. If and when the times comes for her to choose one, will she be able to pick one?
5. Lee Joon Hyuk is the hottest secret keeper
In “Are You Human?” Lee Joon Hyuk plays a secretary who’s just as hot and talented as the physical therapist he was in “A Poem a Day.” He says on playing the secret keeper, “At first I was nervous to stand between Nam Shin and Nam Shin 3. I can’t spoil the drama for you, but I have an attitude towards human Nam Shin which made it easier to play with the two Nam Shins.”
