Are You Human Too? Recap Ep. 13-14

Up to now we have been mostly involved with getting to know our robot, Shin III. Now it’s time to see human Shin’s side of the story. For a character who hasn’t done much but sleep for half of the drama, he’s really taking over. Is he going to turn everyone’s plans upside down? (Do you see those neck veins?) There will be SPOILERS for these two episodes.

Are You Human Too? Recap Episodes 11-12

Can a human truly care for a robot more than for another human? Can a robot truly understand and feel human emotions?

Daneel Olivaw, you can imagine that I will be on the side of the robot!

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
