Director Statement

As technology advances, people lose their humanity.

If virtual reality becomes extremely developed and cannot be distinguished from the real world, can we still consume it like a game?

Or will it be possible to regain the morality and humanity that could have been given up because it was virtual?

SF drama HUMANER poses the question of what it means to be a human through a contrast between "Jinhyun” who have lost his humanity, and Artificial intelligence "Gahyun," who exhibits more human- like traits.

What makes a human being human?
