I'm not a Robot is a witty, funny, and a feel good drama with what I thought to be a linear yet emotion driven plot.

The start of the drama gets your attention right away with it's humor and introduction of the characters. It really does a good job of setting up the arc of character development. Like aforementioned the plot is pretty linear but as I tend to say; linear and simple isn't always a bad thing. It's easy to follow and fun to watch. I really liked how the writer and director tried to capture the essence of the show by answering these questions: Can love be found between different entities? What does it mean to trust? What does it mean to be human? To what extend is hiding who you are a lie?
There were some cliches but they are easily overlooked with other aspects of the story. My emotions throughout the drama were happy, hopeful, and sad.

I thought the main leads were very talented given there age at the time. They chemistry was definitely there and although not believable within the subtext of the actual drama it was realized in a neat way. I hate to over-critique acting and so all I will say about the main leads is that I was moved by their relationship in their show.

The supporting cast were equally great. The group of scientists were soooo funny and provided the comic relief that was necessary throughout parts of the show. I really felt a sense of family and community with the supporting cast and how they interacted with each other as well as the main leads.

The music was great at capturing the emotional highs and lows of the show. It wasn't distracting yet it was catchy. The OST doesn't consist of many songs but like said previously a lot can be done with little and musically this OST seems to fit the bill.

Closing thoughts/Rewatch Value
I don't tend to rewatch many dramas so my score reflects that idealogy, However this doesn't deter from my opinion in really enjoying this drama and recommending it to friends. This was well written, cast, and musically pleasant. If you're looking for something that's easy to watch and not too heart wrenching than this is the one for you. Ratings can reflect the quality of the drama in Korea but this is one that I think doesn't reflect the low ratings. I thoroughly had a fun time with this one.
