I’m seriously considering watching this! GAHHHHH. I don’t do modern dramas usually…. What to do?! My last drama was Legend of Fei and oh boy…how disappointed I was at the final production. I need a good LY’s drama!
A Robot in the Orange Orchard (你好呀我的橘子恋人) is the drama remake of Korean drama I’m Not A Robot with Yoo Seung Ho and Chae Soo Bin released in 2017.
Youku describes the plot: Lu Kun, chairman of the ’emu’ technology company, suffers from a rare illness. When he touches a person, he suffers an allergic reaction. It happened that genius Dr. Bo Yang secretly created the intelligent companion robot “Friday”. At the last minute, Dr. Fu Yang was forced to hire his former assistant Yang Shan Shan to replace “Friday”. Because Yang Shan Shan played “Friday”, Lu Kun had an infinite sense of security. He found that as long as “Friday” is present, he can come into contact with humans and no longer be allergic. This discovery made him even more inseparable from “Friday”. Lu Kun’s warmth and innocence and love for “Friday” gradually broke Yang Shan Shan’s heart. Knowing that deception may cause Lu Kun’s illness to worsen or even die, Yang Shan Shan had to bury the truth about not being a robot.
Lu Kun’s rival, Li Jing Cheng, secretly investigated and discovered that Lu Kun was secretly working on a robotics project. Li Jing Cheng also found out about “Friday”. At the same time, the truth about the car accident more than ten years resurfaced.
This looks mighty cute. First half of the trailer is all rom-com material, then the latter half turns melo. Our heroine is a cross-dressed doctor who is later transferred into Mansion Ji and gets assigned to work under the handsome general Ji Heng. The tricky part is….her family was all executed years ago and she eventually finds out it was on his order (while being entangled in a love triangle with his brother). Dun, dun, dun!
Took me a while to recognize where I have seen our male lead from, he debuted in Fox in the Screen as the white fox and then in The Big Boss! xD
