New sci-fi mystery series Are You Human Too? not only seeks to expand our imagination's horizon in human-android relationships, it is also a very special production for a Korean dramas. Here are some interesting facts, including where the drama went to shoot the spectacular overseas scenes.

1. The 18-episode drama took two years to film at the cost of 2 billion won, or more than US$9.3 million. It is probably among the top 20 most expensively made K-dramas.

2. The production included location filming in the Czech Republic. According to the Hotel Imperial in Karlovy Vary, a crew of 100 members participated in filming the drama from late August to early September. (See more photos posted by the hotel.)

In the first episode, Nam Shin (Seo Kang Joon), the conglomerate's heir, stayed in that hotel as he embarked on a search for his mother.

3. Meanwhile, Nam Shin 3, the android that looks identical to Nam Shin, lives blissfully in this unique house.

It turns out that, in real life, the house in the village of Hrensko is available as a rental house. It is described as a "large and magical cottage is nestled on an open ground, in the famous and popular nature reserve Bohemian-Saxon Switzerland" in the Czech Republic.

4. The ambitious drama was completely pre-produced, and filming finished in late 2017. Most Korean dramas start broadcasting with a few episodes already filmed, and then continue shooting just a few steps ahead.

5. Interestingly, actress Go Ah Ra was first offered the leading lady's role but declined it. Her new drama Miss Hammurabi just recently started on DramaFever. Will the two dramas vy for your attention? Or, are you watching both?
