The plot of the movie is about a 30-year-old PR woman So-yeon who is lonely because of the distance she maintains from everyone. She is assumed to be suffering from a disease that doesn't allow her to recognize faces. She decides to become the Beta tester for an AI Holo companion called Holo and their relationship goes beyond simple companionship. The Holo companion looks like the developer of the technology Ko Nan-do who ends up feeling close to So-yeon after watching her relationship progress with the AI companion.
Yoon Hyun-min as Ko Nan-do and the Holo
Actor Yoon Hyun-min plays the role of AI companion developer Ko Nan-do in the show. He builds the AI companion to look like him and the relationship that the AI and So-yeon begin to have strikes Nan-do hard.
Ko Sung-Hee as So-Yeon
Actor Ko Sung-hee who was previously seen in shows such as 'While You Were Sleeping' and 'Suits' will play the lead role in 'My Holo Love'. In the show, she becomes a beta tester for an AI companion.
Other Cast members include Choi Yeo-jin as Ko Yoo-Jin, Jung Young-ki as Jo Jin-seok and Chansung and Kim Soo-jin in unannounced roles.

The trailer of the show features So-yeon meeting the AI companion for the first time and she is shocked at the likeliness of the hologram's image to a real human. She tries to touch the image to see how it feels and as the beta tester she begins to spend a lot of time in the company of the AI Hologram. She uses a pair of spectacles to switch the AI Holo on. What she doesn't understand is that the AI Holo is created in the spitting image of its developer and the first time she meets him, she mistakes him for her companion and plants a kiss on him. How the two humans connect through the companion who is deadset on understanding an even feeling human emotions is something that the show will primarily portray.
