Mao Xiaotong (The Fated General) and Jiang Chao (The Fox’s Summer) will be playing a couple in their upcoming drama My Robot Boyfriend 我的机器人男友 which started filming on December 15, 2017. It comes at a time when there’s also the currently airing k-drama I’m Not A Robot which is yet another one in a number of dramas tackling romance between cyborg and human.
I always wonder how writers come up with these ideas concurrently but My Robot Boyfriend seems to be the most human in that it’s not about purchasing a robot girl or boy straight out of the box. After two yers of pre-production and many changes to the script, the premise revolves around a young girl bravely chasing after love as she falls for a man who has been mechanically enhanced due to an accident. Filming is expected to take three months.
