Are You Human Too? is the highly anticipated sci-fi romantic mystery drama that will be simulcast on DramaFever starting June 4. Recently, the Korean drama's production team explained the meaning behind the intriguing title. Read on!

Rising actor Seo Kang Joon stars in a dual role in the new drama. He plays Nam Shin, a conglomerate's heir who fell into a deep coma. He also plays Nam Shin III, the android that is built to be identical to the human Nam Shin. The android then falls in love with a human woman.

One would have thought "Are You Human Too?" is a question directed at Nam Shin III, the almost-human android.

However, the drama team recently revealed an unusual explanation regarding the unique title. Here's what they said:

“Namshin III is, from his appearance to his behavior, so like a human that even Nam Shin’s closest acquaintances don’t realize it’s not him. It’s an artificial intelligence (AI) robot whose ever behavior and emotion is programmed to be ‘as if it was human.’ But unlike what Namshin III was taught, humans can use each other and throw each other away in ways that are inhumane. That’s why people experience loneliness even in a crowd.”

Furthermore, “Among these people, Namshin III is designed to listen to people until the end, help the weak, and comfort the crying. He is a very humane robot living among inhumane people, that raises the question of what it means to be human. We hope that people can have the courage to say to people who betray the ideals of humanity, ‘Are you human, too?'”

Isn't that interesting!

So the question is really directed at those people who, despite being born human, nevertheless lack the compassion and behavior associated with humanity.

Don't forget to add this sci-fi romantic mystery, starring Seo Kang Joon in a dual role, to your watchlist.

The brand new K-drama will premier on June 4.
