She learned the special effects business from her father who passed away and recently her celebrity actor boyfriend, Ma Wang Joon (Hong Jong-hyun), had broken up with her for reasons unknown to her. The couple had known one another since childhood, and been in a secret relationship, due to his celebrity, for 7 years.

Fighting all the way, she falls in love with the robot Zero Nine who she names Yeong Goo (Yeo Jin-goo) and Yeong Goo begins to develop real human emotions for her, which he is not built to do, and his feelings are causing his robot body to overheat.

My Absolute Boyfriend Ending Spoiler Alert
There better be another season of My Absolute Boyfriend because this was the worst ending for a K-Drama. We see so much foreshadowing in episode 40. First, we see Diana begin to reevaluate her destructive behavior and go to get psychological help. We still see Um Da-da loving and missing Yeong Goo after three years and she still turns down Ma Wang Joon’s offer to go to America with him. We also see that Yeong Goo reacts to Um Da-da when she is finally allowed to see his body after he’s spent years at the facility where he was created simply for research purposes. Although he lies on the table completely unresponsive, the audience sees him react to Um Da-da’s tears and her confession of love for him. Only the audience sees his hand holding and rubbing the funny sticker that Um Da-da had given him to make him feel acknowledged. We sure would like to see a proper proper ending to this fun K-Drama.
