Seo Kang Joon is joining a select cadre of actors who have taken up the daunting task of playing an artificial being, such as an android, cyborg, or robot, and often in a dual role as a human too. Who else will the Are You Human Too? actor be compared to now? And, which one is your favorite?

1. Chae Soo Bin - I'm Not a Robot

The lovely actress plays Jo Ji Ah, who finds out that her ex-boyfriend, a high-tech developer, has built a robot in her image. However, the robot breaks down on the eve of being shown to an important client, and Jo Ji Ah is asked to pretend to be the robot. Hilarity ensues.

The drama has been extremely popular on DramaFever for its adorable bonding between the pretend-robot and the man (Yoo Seung Ho) who, despite being a genius, doesn't realize he is falling in love and that his robot is not a robot.

2. Yang Se Jong - Duel

Within the span of one year, Yang Se Jong went from a newly-debuted unknown actor to starring as the romantic leading man in Temperature of Love.

3. Yoon So Hee - Bong Soon - a Cyborg in Love

The lovely actress plays a beautiful and intelligent cyborg that is embedded with a peculiar fail-safe built into her system—one that causes her to shut down as soon as love stirs in her cybernetic heart. But despite this design flaw, Kim Joo Sung (Cho Kyu Hyun), a whiz programmer, sets out to write the ultimate code for romance. Will Bong Soon fall in love despite the known consequences?
