The drama tells of an android called Nam Shin III (Seo Kang Joon) in the Trap who must pretend to be the son of a rich family when the real Nam Shin falls into a coma. Nam Shin’s mother, Oh Ro Ra is a genius in brain technology and artificial intelligence (AI) so when her son, the real Nam Shin, is taken away from her at a young age, in her grief she creates an android that looks exactly like her son and has it grow up in the place of Nam Shin. But when Nam Shin, who is a third generation heir to the PK group, gets in an accident and is comatose, the android Nam Shin III must learn how to take his place.
One day, he disappears under suspicious circumstances. Sort of. Oh Ro Ra (Kim Sung Ryung, Heirs) is the young heir’s mother and a leading authority on artificial intelligence. She wants to protect her son’s position, so she assembles a team of scientists with the help of Nam Shin’s friend and secretary, Ji Young Hoon (Lee Joon Hyuk, A Poem a Day).
They create an android, named Nam Shin III, to pose as Nam Shin and safeguard his empire from people like Seo Jong Gil (Yoo Oh Sung, Uncontrollably Fond), the ambitious executive who is just dying to rise up the ranks at PK Group. Kang So Bong (Gong Seung Yeon, Circle: Two Worlds Connected) is Nam Shin III’s bodyguard. While a kind and caring person, she has a tough exterior.
Even though she constantly seems annoyed, Kang So Bong will do anything to defend and protect Nam Shin III, which includes showing him how to act human.
Not only does the android have to imitate Nam Shin, but he also must stop the conspiracy that nearly took his “twin’s” life. And while everyone else worries about the original man, Nam Shin III begins developing feelings, wondering if he can have his own life… and love. But if he can’t stop the conspiracy, there won’t be a life left to live. Also known as “Are You Human?” Are You Human Too? is directed by Cha Young Hoon (Uncontrollably Fond) and written by Jo Jung Joo (The Princess’s Man). It aired in 2018.
