Thank you so much @irilight for updating this thread .....was about to post some of the pictures above but you beat me to it...gomapta chingu.

Welcome to the thread @milky88 - this look like a cute daily drama with the cat as one of the central "role". I presume this will kick off as light-hearted that may eventually turn dramatic when the secrets are out. 

I like Choi Yoon-young since watching her in a supporting role in "King of Baking, Kim Takgu" but it was her role in "My Daughter Seo Young" that impresses me with her acting ability.  Not very familiar with Hyun Woo but I've seen some of his notable performances in "Pasta" and "Secret Agent Ms. Oh".

Nice to see you here, @Ldy_Gmerm - you must be a fan of daily drama.  I was following Melody of Love but somehow with soooo many obstacles on love development and sacrifices on both sides - my heart couldn't take it anymore and gave up on the main couple.  Anyhow, I love the actors.

@irilight, KBSW has been faithfully uploading all their evening daily dramas in YT - so don't worry chingu, you'll definitely be able to watch it once it starts airing in KBSW.

@FeliciaSoh, thank you so much for starting this thread. I don't care about / am not familiar with - the human cast members (having watched very few K-dramas) but if the producers can actually get a real live cat to act in the drama, then I will definitely watch it! :)

@irilight... *waving back*..Hiya....

I too hope that they will upload on KBSW with subs on their You Tube channel...

@FeliciaSoh.... Awesome you arr here! Great that you started this thread.. I just saw the first teaser Monday after Melody of Love's episode... then lucked up on this thread. Sweet!

I am hoping this will show up on the KBSW cable channel as well..that would be good too.

Yes I am a fan of the dailies... LOL just completely addicted to them. :)

@cynkdf, this is for you....... catlaughing.gif .....and I hope the beautiful cast will eventually charm you with their acting.  I don't know why they use "meowing cat" as a title but I sincerely hope it lives up to the story plot --- more fun-filled interaction and less cat-fight and dramatic scenes.

@Ldy_Gmerm, I have strong faith KBSW YT Channel will upload this drama (think it has always been their norm to have daily dramas uploaded).  I guess you must be one of the fans of the current morning drama, "Angel's Revenge" - I quit watching (again for the same reason my heart can't take anymore of Park Jung-chul's evil moves.....he is so addicted in it - this guy is going to call "hell" as his next home. 

Btw, I love the sweet and cute song played in the 1st Teaser - can't wait to see the entire opening on Monday, 9th June. Anyone here planning to watch it without subs....honestly, I am not a huge fan of watching drama live. 

@Milky88 - there's a strong indication that this drama is geared towards a lighter tone than "Melody of Love" though I must be honest to say, I thought the same too when I saw the opening scene of MOL.  Anyway, the first Teaser rocks! I love the cartoonish vibes they injected in the teaser.....and the cat has stolen someone's heart here....yoohoo.....@cyn!

Yup, Hyun Woo smiles can lift up all the burden in your shoulder - he let his soul smile through his heart and his heart smile through his eyes. romance.gif

@irilight, appreciate your kind effort in sourcing all the relevant latest news pertaining to this drama.  I have already put the link on the 1st post.

Hyun Woo and Choi Min Sung! <3 So unexpected for me!

I was absolutely shocked and ecstatic that two of my fave crushes would be in a drama together.  And a daily one! So I get to at least enjoy them even if the show itself falls to typical Korean daily drama frustration-inducing story. hehe

I also like Choi Yoon Young too.  She's been great in every project I've seen her in since Baker King.

@Felicia Soh.. I am getting a kick out of the cat you have offered for @cynkdf... 

I have only seen Park Jang-Chul in Scandal: A shocking and wrongful incident  which was a great drama last year. He was a  support actor who came in rather late in the drama too. He had a funny name, - anchovie!.   purrfect food for a cat...
