Laura Oh (Kim Sung Ryung) is a genius scientist and one of South Korea’s leading authorities on both AI and robotics.
She has also married into one of the nation’s richest families – and her son Nam Shin (Seo Kang Joon), stands to inherit the family’s lucrative business empire.
However, one day, Nam Shin is brutally assaulted and left in a coma fighting for his life. His mother takes the risky yet audacious decision to create an android replacement for her son. Although her first two attempts are unsuccessful, Nam Shin III is an incredible success.
Laura Oh decides to send the automaton into the world to take the place of her son – so that her real son will not be overlooked as the heir to the family business.
To protect Nam Shin III, the family hires former mixed martial arts fighter Kang So Bong (Gong Seung Yeon) as a bodyguard.
But things get very complicated for her – and everyone else involved when she begins to fall in love with the charming, lifelike android as she protects him from the people who once tried – and only narrowly failed – to murder the “real” Nam Shin.
“Are You Human Too?” is a 2018 South Korean drama series directed by Cha Young Hoon.
