She is a meticulous manager at a glasses company but she is unable to recognize faces and has no personal life. How these two will meet and what it will lead to?

“My Holo Love” (also called “Me Alone and You”) is not an average Korean series.

It will be great for anyone seeking a sci-fi romance fix and unpredictable plot twists.

Not only it’s about artificial intelligence, but it also has the same actor playing two roles! One a human and the second one a hologram. It will be extremely difficult for you to decide which one of these two lead characters to support. 

Moreover, you will hardly find another Korean drama where someone with facial blindness interacts with artificial intelligence. This show helps us to see how A.I. can be used for good or evil.

This robot/human romance reveals around Nam Shin 3, an android robot, the exact copy of the real Nam Shin. The human Nam Shin is the son of an extremely wealthy family. Unfortunately, the son is taken away from her. Out of grief and loneliness, his mother, a brilliant technologist, models his android copy. He lives with his creator (let’s say his mother) and knows nothing about his human “brother”. However, everything changes when the human Nam Shin falls into a coma. That’s the moment when his android brother has to take his place.
