Actor Yoo Seung Ho recently sat down for an interview to talk about his recently concluded MBC drama “I Am Not A Robot.”
The actor touched on his first romantic comedy role and talked about his reaction to the drama very low ratings.
He was asked about how he felt when he first saw the ratings, he said,
“Honestly, when I first saw the ratings for our first episode, I couldn’t face the director and look him in the eye the next day on the set, I also couldn’t look Chae Soo Bin in the face. You can’t blame the actor completely, but in a way, the actor is at fault as well.
Fortunately, we laughed it off when I asked about what we should do about the ratings, it seemed not to be professional to change the filming atmosphere due to the ratings, so we promised to have lots of fun and be happy till the end while filming.”
He also talked about how he felt when he found out that the drama did well overseas, he said,
“Fortunately, during mid-airing we found out that the drama was popular overseas, so it became a big source of strength to us. We also joked around that the 3% viewership ratings really meant that the top 3% had good taste.”
He also talked about how he couldn’t believe the ratings numbers, he said,
“To be honest, I couldn’t believe the viewership ratings, everything from the directing style to the cast was good, everything was perfect.”
He also talked about some of the reasons why he believes the drama didn’t do well in ratings, he said,
“I had a lot of fun filming the drama, the atmosphere was bright, we all had fun while filming, I think that some people found it difficult to approach because of the title that included ‘robot,’ however, the drama filming was one of my best works and one of the happiest productions I’ve done.
Although the drama has not been well-received, I have created a drama that I have enjoyed for myself, and I think that I can confidently express my belief in the work more confidently, I liked it so much.
It is a great honor to have done such a thing, and I want to recommend it to people who have not seen it yet.”
What did you think of “I Am Not A Robot”? do you think it deserved the low ratings it got?
