There is the human Nam Shin and then there is Nam Shin III, an android, AI robot. The human Nam Shin was separated from his mother, Oh Ro-Ra, at a very young age. It was said that his father committed suicide, but he was taken from his living mother by force.
Kim Min-Kyu is a reclusive millionaire. He has to live by himself and when he does come out in public he covers himself including wearing gloves and carrying a baton. The baton is to make sure that people keep their distance and don’t touch him. It’s not that he is antisocial. It’s just that he’s allergic to humans. If a human touches him he has an extreme allergic reaction and it could even result in death.
GIO Labs deserves high praise for being the first to invent an AI humanoid that passed the Turing Test (a test that scores how well a machine can imitate a human talking).

Singularity – The advent of Artificial Intelligence that exceeds that of its human creators. Along with becoming smarter than humans, these computers and machines also gain sentience and break free from the control of their human creators. Civilization is forever changed – but for better or worse is up for debate.
One of the main hurdles machines have to leap before they can successfully enslave humanity is being able to convincingly pretend they are one of us. Most science fiction assumes this will happen long after advanced robot bodies are available. The believability of an advanced humanoid robot that still acts weirdly inhuman is the basis of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career.
All of us who have spent any time on the internet have wasted our time debating unfeeling, non-human entities. They’re called trolls.
