    The ratings for I’m Not A Robot seem lower than I woulda thought. I recently started watching it myself, you know to counteract a lot of intense feelz I was getting from scarlett heart ryeo. Ive been finding it to be a surprisingly heartfelt rom com.

      Yeah, the ratings were really low for I’m Not a Robot for its entire run 😦 I just finished it a couple days ago and really enjoyed it. But I would guess the first few eps in particular might not be as appealing to Korean audiences as well as the premise in general. But the drama gets better and better as it goes.

      I can understand why you would be looking for something a tad lighter to balance out all that intensity that Scarlet Heart is! It’s definitely an emotional roller coaster of the best kind. I really hope you enjoy I’m Not a Robot too. It is the definition of a heartfelt rom com 🙂

    It seems that romcoms don’t appeal to Korean audiences. It’s a shame that I’m Not a Robot had low ratings because I enjoyed it quite a bit.
