Humans tend to search far and wide for true love. However in moments of desperation or loneliness, have you ever wondered if love between a human and a robot is possible? Find out as the mystery unfolds on “My Robot Boyfriend” exclusively on Viu, a freemium OTT streaming service offering the best of Asian content to Malaysians.
My Robot Boyfriend depicts a love story between a young girl interning at a medical school, and a humanoid robot tasked to oversee skills development in the same school. In this story, love and relationships take a turn from the norm.
Bringing the audience to a time set in the future, the story begins with Yu Zhenxin, a humanoid robot secretly invented for “left behind” women – those who have yet to find love. An intern, Lin Mengnan, becomes the first “test subject” for the robot – by accident. Yu Zhenxin’s warmth and kindness draws Lin Mengnan to become emotionally dependent on him, although she knows that he is a humanoid.
One day, however, Lin Mengnan meets Han Yifeng, her senior, whom she falls in love with. In a twist of events, Yu Zhenxin slowly becomes aware of his jealousy as he observes this human love and interaction. As Lin Mengnan and Han Yifeng develop a closer relationship, Yu Zhenxin begins to question if artificial intelligence could ever replace human emotions.
Directed by Guo Miaojing(郭淼晶), My Robot Boyfriend will see a star-studded cast including the likes of Zhu Zixiao(朱梓驍), Zeng Mengxue(曾夢雪), Zhao Shi(趙時), Qu Yutong(曲昱曈) and Luo Mingjie(駱明劼).
