Set against the backdrop of South Korea, the musical tells the story of Helperbot 3, an obsolete model robot. The narrative unfolds as a bond forms between Helperbot 3 and his neighbor, who visits to borrow a charger. This encounter sparks a romantic adventure, portrayed through Aronson’s music and Park’s lyrics. The duo also crafted the book for the musical.
