My Thoughts


That is really happy ending for a story. The drama is not really high intensive about crisis, the flow is simple and easy to get, however it makes me feel comfort. The story brings a meaningful lesson about human and animal, and friendship. Some person might more interesting with romantic and love story, but I think bravo writer Kim Kyung for his courage to bring cat story to the screen. ( you might have a cat in your house and I am sure that its very cute).

I think Imaginary Cat was finish it target perfectly, Actor Yoo Seung Hoo’s comeback able drama, and he did a fresh start, a new angle of his acting, so I feel he is closer and friendlier.

Jo Hae Jeong who plays Oh Na Woo is non-experience actress, and I can see that she is really put much effort to complete the drama with Yoo , and she did it nicely.

However, the drama is a little bit short only 30 mins per episode, and just one episode per week. It’s make me spend much time for other movie than “Imaginary Cat”.

And the last regret is , it’s not enough to writer to kill Bok Gil , I understand that it has its own meaning for taking Bok Gil but still so sad. Especial, the last wish Bok Gil make for Jong Hyun and it really touching. I know pet has feeling and sense like human, even more loyalty and gratitude

Anyway, it’s worth for every single minute of watching, I will recommend it for any friend who has pet at home . I know it make me love my pet deeper.
