“Absolute Boyfriend” will tell the story of a humanoid robot with a passionate heart, a woman who builds defenses around her heart due to past pains, and a man who is suffering because he let go of his love. The original manga series was published from 2003 to 2004 in Japan, with a drama being created in 2008 in Japan and in 2012 in Taiwan.
This sci-fi rom-com features Minah
as a talented makeup artist who specializes in special effects work. When we meet her, she’s sworn off love after getting her heart broken by Hong Jong Hyun
, an A-list celeb. One day she unexpectedly receives a package in the mail–an unbelievably life-like robot, Yeo Jin Goo
. As she inadvertently activates him and brings him to life as an absolutely dedicated boyfriend, she wrestles with what love means exactly and idea of falling in love with a robot. What’s more, as K-drama ex-boyfriends often are, Hong Jong Hyun is on the periphery of Minah and Yeo Jin Goo's budding relationship and he’s not quite over Minah. The director-writer duo is PD Jung Jung-hwa (Flower Boy Next Door, Flower Boy Ramyun Shop) and Yang Hyuk-moon (Mirror of the Witch).( Collapse )
