It may not be Christmas yet, but Netflix is already looking ahead to the new year, lining up its first Korean original series of 2020.
My Holo Love is an unconventional love triangle story depicting the delicate emotions of falling for someone. It follows the unique story of three not-so-perfect but extraordinary characters. So-yeon, played by Ko Sung-hee (Suits, While You Were Sleeping), has distanced herself from the rest of the world due to her face blindness disorder. Yoon Hyun-min (Beautiful Mind, My Daughter Geum Sa-wol) plays both Holo and Nan-do, who look exactly the same but are polar opposites. Holo is a perfect AI assistant who realises his limits as an artificial intelligence. Nan-do is Holo’s developer, who begins to have feelings for Soyeon, while watching her and Holo interact.
My Holo Love is directed by Lee Sang-yeop (Familiar Wife, Shopaholic Louis) and written by renowned screenwriter Ryu Yong-jae (Time Between Dog and Wolf, Pied Piper).
“This is an emotional romantic drama about young people who seem to have glamorous lives but are suffering from broken hearts. What is especially intriguing is one of the main character’s existence as an AI hologram. This drama is about a unique love triangle and a heartwarming contemporary story of togetherness,” says director Lee Sang-yeop.
My Holo Love will premiere on 7th February 2020 on Netflix.
My Holo Love is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £9.99 monthly subscription.
