I’m Not a Robot is one of those cute dramas that got us with high expectations and really delivered until the end. I’m not depriving it of the praise it deserves, but before I give my final thoughts, let me just recap our final two episodes briefly.
Min-kyu (Yoo Seung-ho) disclosed his allergy to the world, and the world accepted him whole-heartedly. He was able to reconcile with his childhood friend Yoo-cheol (Kang Ki-young), and let go of any grudge that he has been harboring for 15 years. Yoo-cheol and Ri-el (Hwang Seung-un) teamed up to prevent Min-kyu’s proposed dismissal as KM Financial director, and supported his vision of the company’s investment into artificial intelligence and robot-making.
Sta. Maria team is still solid as always, and now Prof. Hong Baek-gyun (Uhm Ki-joon) and Pi (Park Se-wan) are officially in a relationship! I loved how this played out really well. They really look good together.
Sun-hye (Lee Min-ji) and Hoktal (Song Jae-ryong) are going stronger than ever, with a cute Ssanip (Kim Min-kyu) being bitter as a single man at the sidelines.
Jo teamjang became KM Financial’s managing director while Min-kyu entered his mandatory military service. I loved how the show premiered with Min-kyu’s interview for his military enlistment (and got disqualified due to his illness) and ended with Min-kyu completing his military service after two years.
Jia (Chae Soo-bin) is still a budding entrepreneur, bursting with unique ideas to help make the world an easier place to live in. I loved how she was able to reach her goal of selling her products, and with an international distributor at that. Good job, Jia-ssi!
As much as I loved this series, I can’t help but mention how the Madam X side story was left untouched until the end. I don’t know if it’s some lazy writing on the part of the production, but I was really disappointed. I looked forward to meeting her (or him?) in this finale! Whomever Madam X may be, I’ll just think of her as Min-kyu’s guardian angel.
Aside from the amazing cinematography, the musical scoring of this drama was really well thought-of. I loved how they were able to capture the perfect emotions of every character, with the exception of the poor acting of Martin and the rest of the English-speaking peeps in this drama. Foreigners starring in K-dramas are consistently annoying me because of how they are really poor in acting, but I’m Not a Robot really featured some of the worst ones.
I’m Not a Robot got lucky with its quirky premise because it’s the first among all the android dramas that will be shown this year. It’s still a refreshing story and was executed really well. I’m going to miss seeing Yoo Seung-ho every week!
It’s not a Yoo Seung-ho drama if it did not make you cry, so I really loved his first venture into the romantic comedy scene! His chemistry with Chae Soo-bin was on point, and your boy really knows how to kiss!!!! Ahjumma iz proud~
