K-Drama Rewind: Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency

K-dramaland never runs out of colorful friendships. There's always a new squad every drama season to root for. As drama fans, we are always well-fed when it comes to beautiful relationships, romantic or not. And for our latest Flashback Session, I like to feature a youth sageuk that's uncomplicated and fun, yet isn't short of…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Finale

What can I say? It's not the ending we imagined. It made us even more curious, but I was surprisingly happy with it! I know the drama's finale only left more things unanswered but I don't want to dwell on it really because of the roller coaster ride I just had while watching the last…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 33-34

The show seems to be deteriorating at this point, and with only 1 hour worth of episodes left, I honestly cannot predict how they will wrap everything up. Even the ending of Episode 34 is very unexpected, and even though I hated Dr Oh Laura (Kim Sung-ryung) before, I never wanted her to exit like…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 31-32

Our robot Namsin 3 (Seo Kang-joon) is back in his old self after the jerk Nam Sin (also Seo Kang-joon) abused the manual mode and made him attack both the Chairman(Park Young-gyu) and So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon). He managed to override the ruthless act and he is now free from the human Sin's manipulation. Sin is…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 29-30

I have been loving this show for so long I was actually afraid to let go once it's over. But right now, I think I'm ready for it to end especially since they started focusing the narrative on the human Nam Sin's (Seo Kang-joon) evil side, rather than giving us some squeeshy robot Namsin 3…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 27-28

These two episodes presented the human Nam Sin's point of view, I believe. The opening gave a clear understanding how Sin grew up under the supervision of his cunning grandfather. There wasn't a day that he forgot his mom Oh Laura. He stood by his white lie of "being okay" when he was "driving away"…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 25-26

There are always two sides of a coin. And no matter how costly or rare that coin may be, one will always face the ground when flipped. That's why we don't have to judge people's actions by its face value. I don't know if I'm making sense here but I just want to dedicate these…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 23-24

You know it's perfect casting when the male lead can pull off both the hero and the villain characters without confusing its audience. And that's how Seo Kang-joon made this drama even more exciting. We already have a very complicated plot material to begin with, but the execution of the two Nam Sin characters -…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 21-22

If only I have the power to create that notorious kill switch, I'd gladly do so. And I have so many humans in mind!!!! Kill switch for Reporter Jo Waaa, I expected Reporter Jo (Kim Hyun-sook) to confront So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon) about the USB and Namsin3's (Seo Kang-joon) real identity sooner or later, but I…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 19-20

Nam Sin 3 (Seo Kang-joon) just keeps getting better in making us fall in love with him with every passing episode! The way he heroically saved the abducted So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon) from the snake tattoo guy through his own judgment and AI abilities. Also, the snake tattoo guy got hit by karma real hard! He…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 17-18

If you are in So-bong's (Gong Seung-yeon) position, what would you do? Will you be able to guard your own heart and treat Namsin3 (Seo Kang-joon) as a mere robot? We all know how adorable Namsin is, and despite his developing "errors" (aka feelings in human psychology), at the end of the day, he is…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 15-16

What makes Are You Human, Too? different from other robot dramas is that it's main character, Namsin 3 (Seo Kang-joon), is presented in such a way that we will invest in him. We saw him "grow up" from the young boy Namsin 1 to teenage Namsin 2, and now, as a full grown adult Namsin…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 13-14

I knew it. Grandpa (Park Yeong-gyu) was faking his illness so that he would know who were really on his side. He was testing Sin (Seo Kang-joon) as his heir apparent, and he wanted to see how he will react to his deteriorating health. Well, to be fair, it's the robot Namsin (also Seo Kang-joon)…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 11-12

Can somebody please enlighten this ahjumma why on earth does the chairman fakes his dementia? Or my interpretation was wrong? I was so taken aback by this revelation?! I never thought we would use Namsin's (Seo Kang-joon) lie detecting hand to a very important role. 😂 This makes me really sad that we only get one…

K-Drama Reaction: Are You Human, Too? | Episodes 7-8

This episode proved that Seo Kang-joon deserved all the praises in the world as the worthy leading man in this drama. He may have had his fair share of hits and misses when it comes to acting projects, but his portrayal of Namsin III in Are You Human, Too? is definitely one for the books!…
