I adore this drama. When i first heard about it I was a bit torn about whether to watch it or not. A human falling in love with a robot? No thankyou. However, I'm so glad I did!
The title speaks for itself - "Absolute Boyfriend" (the English translation). Idealism was precisely incorporated in having an ideal partner including what people really wants from his/her partner. It also showed the reality that nothing stays the same hundred percent. People tend to change including their wants because of their environment and the situation they are into.
This series had one of the best figurative interpretation on how to love someone selflessly. It came to a point when I felt like how can a robot be more human than me in forsaking oneself due to the love for someone. And then I asked myself, "Can I be like him? Can I love someone selflessly?"
Have your tissues/hankies ready at the last quarter of the series.
