Netflix’s first Korean original of 2020 debuts in Feb
December 16, 2019
Netflix has announced that My Holo Love, an unconventional love triangle story, will be released globally on February 7th 2020.
My Holo Love follows the 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 realizes 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.
The official photo released by Netflix shows the sentimental relationship between So-yeon and Holo. The image reveals Holo’s devotion to So-yeon and his empathy for her needs, capturing the delicate emotional nature of their relationship.
My Holo Love, the first Netflix Korean original series of 2020, 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 February 7th 2020, exclusively on Netflix.
