The production will be MBC's first variety drama in 11 years, as well as the broadcasting station's first dramatized comedy in 5 years since sitcom 'What's With Mom' in 2012. MBC is known for its sitcom masterpieces, including the 'Nonstop' series, the 'Highkick' series, and more.
'Borg-Mom' will tell the story of Choi Go Bong, an artificial intelligence inventor who creates an AI humanoid robot wife to replace his real wife who died right after giving birth to their son 7 years ago. The story follows their son Choi Yool's admission into a luxury kindergarten in Gangnam, as well as his robot mom's admission into the elite moms club exclusively for moms whose kids go to the best kindergarten in the area.
Choi Go Bong will be played by Yang Dong Geun, while Park Han Byul will play the role of 'Borg-Mom'. In addition, actresses Ivy, Choi Yeo Jin, Hwang Bo Ra, and Jung Yi Rang have been cast as moms in the elite moms club, while 'Produce 101' season 2's Kwon Hyun Bin and singer-turned-actor Choi Jung Won will join Yang Dong Geun as part of the male cast.
'Borg-Mom' is slated to air sometime in September. Do you think the story sounds interesting?
