In an interview for Are You Human Too? Seo Kang-joon, who is also famous for his honey brown eyes mentioned Gong Seung-yeon’s eyes.

Gong Seung-yeon and Seo Kang-joon in Are You Human Too?
Are You Human Too? is a 2018 South Korean television series which aired on KBS2 every Monday and Tuesday at 22:00 PM KST, from June 4th to August 7th, 2018, for a total of 36 episodes. The series features Seo Kang-joon and Gong Seung-yeon. The shooting location took place in Seoul, South Korea, and the Czech Republic.
Seo Kang-joon acted a dual role as Nam Shin and Nam Shin III. Nam Shin is a third generation heir who falls into a coma after an unexpected accident. His mother, Oh Laura, an authority on brain science and artificial intelligence, leads the creation of an android, Nam Shin III, in a bid to maintain his position as heir to a chaebol conglomerate.
Gong Seung-yeon acted as Kang So-bong, a former MMA fighter who had to quit due to an injury sustained in a competition, so now works as a bodyguard. She’ll come to protect Nam Shin III, and although she does it out of selfish motives at first, she later comes to care for him genuinely.
The story is about Nam Shin (Seo Kang-joon), who is a son from a family who runs a large company. After an unexpected accident, he falls into a coma. His mother, Laura Oh (Kim Sung-ryoung), is an authority on brain science and artificial intelligence. She creates an android named Nam Shin III that looks just like her son Nam Shin. To protect his position as the heir to a chaebol, Laura sends Nam Shin III to take his place and fulfill his duties.
The android pretends to be Nam Shin and he has a bodyguard named Kang So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon). She is a member of Nam Shin’s security detail until she is disgracefully dismissed. She becomes Nam Shin III’s bodyguard, determined to get to the bottom of his strange comments and behavior. However, she gets more than what she’d bargained for when she starts falling for him – and has to keep him safe from the very people who also tried to murder Nam Shin.
Are You Human Too? is the series where both Seo Kang-joon and Gong Seung-yeon got first leading roles in a drama broadcasted on a public broadcasting station. Seo Kang-joon and Gong Seung-yeon are the same age and they have had a good relationship during the production. Seo Kang-joon said that he was comfortable because they were the same age.
