Yoo Seung-ho and Chae Soo-bin on I’m Not a Robot
Who hasn’t heard of the drama I’m Not a Robot? It took Asia by storm late in 2017 and early in 2018. It was even aired in Philippines, due to the high demand by fans who are dying to see Yoo Seung-Ho and Chae Soo-Bin’s magical chemistry in the show. However, though I’m Not a Robot is undoubtedly famous around Asia, domestically, its ratings haven’t been very high. It was said that the drama received the lowest viewer rating in its time slot. Fans of the drama don’t really care about that though, because they think that Yoo Seung-Ho and Chae Soo-Bin’s interaction in the show is so priceless, it can’t be judged by mere ratings.
About I’m Not a Robot
The drama I’m Not a Robot is about Kim Min-Gyu (Yoo Seung Ho), a very rich man who owns the main share of a finance company and who has a rare illness, which is that he’s allergic of people. One day, Hong Baek-Hyun (Uhm Ki-Joon) proposes an Artificial Intelligence (AI) robot project to Kim Min-Gyu. After hearing that the AI robot is almost like a human, Kim Min-Gyu is interested and asked Hong Baek-Hyun to deliver the prototype to his home so he can test it himself.
However, things happened and the AI robot got broken. It wasn’t like the damage is irreparable, but the robot needed to be delivered to Kim Min-Gyu immediately, and the AI team figured out that they wouldn’t have enough time to fix it. They were thrown into a panic and were just about to give up, when Hong Baek-Hyun came up with a crazy idea. He confessed that the robot was actually modeled after his ex-girlfriend, so he suggested that they send his ex-girlfriend instead of the real robot. At first, things were out of control because the team opposed the idea and Jo Ji-Ah (Chae Soo-Bin) the ex-girlfriend disagreed, but eventually, everything was settled and the plan proceeded.
Believing that Jo Ji-Ah is a robot, Kim Min-Gyu interacted with her just naturally with his allergy not acting up, even though Jo Ji-Ah is actually a human. He then believed that the robot is the key to his recovery. However, things were not as smooth as he imagined it to be when he found out about the truth. Nonetheless, in the end, it was revealed that through all the misunderstandings and miscommunications, Kim Min-Gyu and Jo Ji-Ah fell in love with each other and they ended up having their own happy ending together.

The cute moments that Kim Min-Hyu and Jo Ji-Ah shared on screen have made many a heart squeal with happiness, which makes fans wonder whether the great chemistry between Yoo Seung-Ho and Chae Soo-Bin has anything to do with their relationship in real life. They started to suspect that they are actually an item in the real world.
The fans suspicions weren’t baseless, they were led on by some behind-the-scenes footage that MBC released, which showed that Yoo Seung-Ho and Chae Soo-Bin are quite close.
It was clear that when they weren’t filming they still spend time with each other joking around. They were truly comfortable with each other’s presence.
They even share the same blanket.
And drink from the same cup.
