If you’re looking to dip your toes into a new Korean drama series, you can count on this show to satisfy your K-drama rom-com cravings. Though many K-dramas fly under the radar for this genre, ‘Please Don’t Date Him’ is one show that’s bound to make your heart flutter. It made its first debut back in November 2020 and has 10 episodes that run for 70 minutes each — making it a relatively easy binge.
The series stars Song Ha Yoon who takes on the role of Seo Ji-seong who’s a programmer on the A.I. Development Team. While working on a refrigerator, she accidentally inserts a chip belonging to the National Intelligence Service. Instead of the program rating the freshness of her vegetables, it sorts out the undesirable people from the dating pool. However, it takes an unexpected turn when her fiancé isn’t who she thought he was. As the plot develops, she then meets Jung Kook Hee which stars U-KISS’ Lee Jun Young, who plays the role of a firefighter. In this case, Jung Kook Hee has no social media presence, leaving Seo Ji Sung with little data to analyse.
Now if you’ve already watched the show, you might wonder if the cast would actually rely on such a machine if they existed in real life. Well, you’re in luck. Recently, we interviewed Lee Jun Young, Song Ha Yoon and Yoon Bomi to find out their take on dating, relationships and their thoughts on AI influencing their love lives.
