Never before in the history of Korean television a robot drama gained such traction as Are You Human Too? Yesterday, actors Seo Kang Joon, Gong Seung Yeon, Lee Joon Hyuk, and Park Hwan Hee sat down and chatted with V Live, and it was a delight to catch them in a casual setting with wine and hors d'oeuvres on a candlelit table. They discussed one another’s first impressions, what kind of robot they would want in real life, and why they decided to film Are You Human Too? They also promised to hold an autographs signing if the live ratings reached 10%.

It seems safe to say everyone on set was amazed at how much snacks Kang Joon can stuff into his mouth. “You eat so well,” Hwan Hee told Kang Joon, and Joon Hyuk chimed in, saying, “I envy you for not putting on weight after eating so much.” Kang Joon explained he does gain weight, but it’s easy to shave it off. “I lose weight if I starve for a day.”

When they moved on to talk about their first impressions on Seung Yeon, Kang Joon pointed out they have the same light brown eyes. Seung Yeon said seeing Joon Hyuk in real life was “so cool,” and she “felt so amazed to work with these guys,” who “felt like celebrities to me.”

Joon Hyuk had good things to share especially for Hwan Hee. “She’s very bright and considerate for her age. She’s multi-talented as well. I saw her play jiu-jitsu and I thought, ‘I have a lot to learn from her.’”

When asked to comment on their dream robots, “a robot that makes money” was Seung Yeon’s answer, and Joon Hyuk said he’d want a robot that makes food.

On a last note, Kang Joon said he wanted to try playing a dual role, though it “felt scary” at first. “A dual role is any actor’s dream. Playing an A.I., a non-living creature, also intrigued me,” he elaborated. The casting offer caught Seung Yeon off guard, because “I was surprised to find out I’d get to play such an important role,” she said.
