Previews for "Absolute Boyfriend"

“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).

"Absolute Boyfriend" premieres Wednesday, May 15 on SBS.

They filmed this almost a year ago and I was wondering if it would ever be released. This honestly looks like just the cheesy fun I want it to be and I like all three leads so I'll check it out.

I’ve learned the hard way to not trust adaptations of Zettai Kareshi, so I think I will skip this one and just go read the manga again lol

I liked the Japanese one...

It's definitely the best adaptation, but I couldn't stand Aibu Saki as Riiko

I don’t watch any of this stuff but I saw Minah’s name, I’m glad she’s doing something

I love the manga so much and was slightly disappointed by the J-Drama so I’m a little nervous about this. I may still check it out though.

The Japanese version is special to me but it does have it's faults. This version looks....like I'm going to skip it.
