My Thoughts

I don’t know about the cast…. Why did they add Uhm Ki Joon to the drama?

I ask this question because he is born in 1976, he is way way older, Soo Bin and Seung Ho are of the same age born in 1994 and 1993 respectively, he is clearly a lot older and looks a lot older as well.

There is nothing wrong with his acting, he is an amazing actor but him playing Soo Bin’s ex-boyfriend is just too far of a stretch to me…

The plot still doesn’t make much sense to me, a woman pretends to be a robot? why? why would anyone wanna do that? why would anyone want to make a drama about such a plot?

What do you guys think?
