- Go A-ra was offered the role of the female lead but declined.
- The show was thoughtful with a beautiful message : What does humanity truly mean?, What does it mean to be a human being?
- I’m not usually a fan of suspenseful sci-fi dramas like these, but I loved this! There are enough mind-blowing plot twists and shocking cliffhangers to keep us engaged.
- The music for me fits perfectly with this drama.
- What truly made me fall in love with this drama was the stellar performance acting of Seo Kang Joon. He is just brilliant. He played two very different characters flawlessly. Show is worth the watch just to see him in action.
- A surprisingly engaging and enjoyable ride.
- If you don’t mind interspecies romance between a robot and a human, definitely give it a try!
My Rating – 9/10
