Lazy Unnie’s Couch: My Holo Love

“Me Alone and You” is about the events that occur when a lonely woman meets the artificially intelligent “Holo.” The drama is filled with stories of heartbreaking loneliness and tear-stained love. Go Nan Do is the owner of an IT research company. As a genius inventor, he started the company, and all projects were created through his hands. However, the only people who are aware of his existence are his stepsister and the official CEO. He was a hacker in a major case 10 years ago and supposedly died while being pursued. Han So Yeon is an assistant manager at a glasses company. Whether it is working on brand marketing or the logistics of the launching party for the company’s flagship store, she shoulders on her work and stays ahead of the industry’s trends. She meticulously takes care of her clients and her work. However, when it comes to her personal life, she keeps her distance as she suffers from prosopagnosia, the inability to recognize faces.

When I first saw this added to the Netflix line up earlier in the year, I had the intention of checking it out, but I wasn’t in a rush. That’s why on a whim and in the need of some fluffy romance, I started this. What I didn’t really expect was the constant pockets of sadness that was thrust upon me. Along with that, this show required a lot from the viewer, that by the time I was more than 3/4 done with the show, I was kind of over some things.

Let me go back, the plot is about a girl, Han So Yeon, with traumatic caused face blindness, comes across these magic glasses. Well, they’re not really magic but they might as well be. They are prototype of holographic glasses that basically gives you a real life (holo life) siri. But instead of some lady in your phone, it’s a hot man who is hyper aware. It’s AI on crack. Now this isn’t some random man either, the holo is designed after the creator, Go Nan Do. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Sprinkle some tragic stories about a dead mom, an almost gangster sub plot about the thievery of the holo technology, and even had time to throw in a side character love story. Like I said, the plot had a lot of things that the creators really wanted us to believe and trust.

However, the fact that the characters were believable in the unbelievable circumstances, it made me continue on with watching. The acting wasn’t horrendous that I wanted to stop. What I liked the most had to be Yoon Hyun Min’s portrayal of Go Nan Do and Holo. Even though both characters shared a face, that is where it ended. He did a great job at giving each their own flare they needed to be distinct in their worlds. I didn’t really believe the love story between Nan Do and So Yeon but So Yeon and Holo were adorable.

Speaking of So Yeon, she wasn’t a leading lady I hated. He was adorable and I really liked the way she carried herself. Having face blindness was probably a hard thing to portray but it didn’t feel cheesy but at the same time, she never acted as if she had gotten completely over it. With the help of Holo, that made sense.

In the end, it was basically a nice little drama to watch when you’re trying to kill some time. The plot was as holey as Swiss cheese, but it was like high quality cheese.
