Are You Human Too? Episodes 9-10 Recap

This scene is shown with the opening titles, so we’ve seen it before plenty of times and have been waiting for it to happen. Beautifully silhouetted and backlit, Shin III stops the car! It’s similar to our favorite stunt in You Who Came From The Stars. Come along and see how it fits into the story. We WILL HAVE SPOILERS for these two episodes.

We finally find out about the motivations of Chairman Nam and Secretary Ji, someone new finds out about the robot, and the robot himself gets a paradigm shift. Note that there will be SPOILERS for these three episodes.

Are You Human Too? Ep 1-3 Recap

We don’t have many science fiction Korean dramas and when one comes up, I’m always interested to see how they will handle it. This drama is already throwing us a lot of questions. Can machines have emotions? Can we trust their decisions? Can they be treated the same as humans? Having enjoyed I’m Not a Robot and being a long-time fan of Data and R. Daneel Olivaw, you can imagine that I will be on the side of the robot!

A Poem a Day, Episodes 15-16 Recap

We have come to the end of our story. Our sweet little comedy has turned into a look at a variety of personalities with problems that many of us have. There are tough times for everyone, but each episode has light and fun moments. Most of our characters have learned and improved, but not all of their problems have been solved. Bo Young in particular has gained a lot of confidence and is not the same girl who used to let herself get pushed around. Come see how everyone is doing! THERE ARE SPOILERS!

A Poem a Day Episodes 13-14, Recap

This is really an ensemble show in that every week different characters are highlighted. Last week Yoon Joo had an important storyline, but she doesn’t do much this week. The radiology guys have an interesting story one episode and not the next, and we get more about the Chief in one episode and Dr. Park in another. Not much happens with the main couple, and we still don’t really know much about Dr. Ye, but Min Ho regresses badly to fifth-grader status this week. THERE ARE SPOILERS

A Poem A Day, Episodes 11-12 Recap

We have three love affairs going on in these episodes. There is the main triangle of Bo Young, Min Ho, and Dr. Ye, as well as a new triangle with Yoon Joo, Dae Bang, and his hospital roommate; and then there is Nam Woo and a girl he knows from school. The first gets some resolution here, the second is the most entertaining, and the third is perhaps the most touching. Come along with us to see what happens! THERE WILL BE SPOILERS.

Min Ho, Yoon Joo, and the Chief, in particular, are running into their shortcomings and the consequences of their past.

A Poem a Day, Episode 5-6 Recap

This really is an ensemble show with several interweaving storylines, and we find out a lot about our characters’ backgrounds in these episodes. We meet the families of Bo Young, Min Ho, and radiologist Joo Yong. We also find out about a past connection between roommate Yoon Joo and radiologist Dae Bang, as well as something about what happened to Dr. Ye at his previous hospital. Through it all the silly side of our characters keeps the thought-provoking side from becoming too heavy. I won’t tell you everything that happens, but WE WILL HAVE SPOILERS FOR THESE TWO EPISODES.
