SEOUL, May 31 (Yonhap) -- A press event for KBS 2TV's new television series "Are You Human Too?" took place in Seoul on May 31, 2018.
The story centers on Nam Shin, a third-generation chaebol heir who falls into a coma following an accident, and his mother, who creates a robot duplicate of him called Nam Shin III.
Actor Seo Kang-joon plays the double role of the sick man and the robot, while Gong plays the man's bodyguard, Kang So-bong.
Producer Cha Young-hoon said the series paints an ironic picture of a world in which a robot exhibits more virtuous human characteristics than actual humans.
"I hope the story raises the question of whether people conveniently ignore many ethical principles that define humanity," he said.
The first episode of the series will air at 10 p.m. on June 4. It succeeds the drama "The Miracle We Met," which ended Tuesday with a 13.1 percent viewership rating.
