Yoo Seung-ho picks quirky drama Imaginary Cat for television comeback

Yoo Seung-ho is coming back to TV! Rejoice!

The project sounds rather quirky, described as a “healing drama” titled Imaginary Cat. It’s based on an original webtoon, which was quite popular as a collection of funny, lighthearted stories about the lives of a young man and the cat he lives with (who calls him “Human,” of course), finding the humor in how the two respond to the same scenarios differently.

Yoo Seung-ho’s character is a webtoon writer who also works part-time in a bookshop, who runs into problems because his personality is too stubborn and self-centered. His cat is the only one he opens his heart to, and their relationship becomes a source of healing and comfort.

It’s been ages since we last saw Yoo Seung-ho in anything; I Miss You was his last drama, which wrapped in January 2013, and before that was 2012’s Arang and the Magistrate). He completed his two years of military service last December but has only taken on movies since then, neither of which has released yet. (They’re both period pieces, romance drama Joseon Magician and comedy Kim Seon-dal.)

Yoo Seung-ho is apparently quite the cat-lover, often posting photos of himself with his own cats, which makes me love him even more. On top of the loads of charisma and acting talent, of course. As a cat person myself, this sounds hilarious and wry, though I’m not sure how the premise translates to narrative drama format, or how many special effects it’ll require for the cat character. But it sounds novel and interesting, and Yoo Seung-ho is fantastic, so you can count me in.

Imaginary Cat is looking to air at the end of November.

He will win a girl in this series, right?! Does anyone here happen to know about this webtoon? I am so curious. Btw Please cast Yoon Eun Hye as the first female lead, so that Harry and Zoe can end up together in this series. Just kidding. I know she is busy joining some fashion reality show in China. (Big sigh)

They looked so good together right? Could not even finish that drama because of how harry looked so awesome even if so dark and twisted as a character.

With the backlash YEH received due to the statements her company released in regards to her fashion plagiarism, I doubt Korea will warmly accept her back in dramaland.

aww yes!! The only way Yoo Seung-ho could be cuter is if you added a cat, and it looks like we're getting the cat!

which channel is this set to air on, though? November is just next month, so I can't wait to get him back on our screens again!

I read in YHS news the other day, camvan wrote on October 7th, 2015 at 11:11 PM:

"I’ve learned from a Japanese website that he is going to star in a drama called “Imaginaru cat” soon. It will be aired in November on MBC. Check it out here:

http://news.kstyle.com/article.ksn?articleNo=2030412

Acording to this piece of news, this drama is adapted from a Korean webtoon. His character is a webtoon writer and does a part time job at a bookstore. No romance is mentioned !!! The plot sounds not very interesting to me without romance though (sigh)."

-- If it is correct, then it might be after She Was Pretty ends in Nove? I do hope so..

Don't we all talk to cats but they totally ignore us, I'd watch Yoo Seung-ho do just that for 16 hours.

I love Cats! The musical.

I'm kind of sad that every other drama out is based on a webtoon.

If his leading lady is the cat then I'm tuning in.

Best news I've heard since Goodbye Mr. Black said its goodbye. If it's about a human and a cat, then it would be a first for me. I've seen ghosts and vampires, so cats in a drama should be a breeze. Oh, and his royal hotness Yoo Seung ho is a great Christmassy bonus. Bring it on!

Confession : I don't think I've seen any of Yoo Seung-ho's drama/movies. I think I'm mostly (for now) interested in ... the cat! And the webtoon!

It's on MBC Every1. I'm surprised there's not much outrage about your oppar being stuck in barely-breaches-0.6%-land...

He's doing a movie also anyway so this is probably something he really wanted to get involved with no matter what due to his love for cats. I guess it's combining two things he loves...lucky guy!

Yoo Ah In and Yoo Seung-ho? I do not see it ....Yoo Ah In and Park Seo Joon I see similarities

Yoo Seung-ho features is more like Kim Soo Hyun but I prefer Yoo Seung-ho. He got better aura.

This totally remind me of one Japanese movie that also based on a manga that focused on a bond between a struggling mangaka and a lost kitten. It was a simple story on a course of a cat's life (also, the time constrain to fit an hour duration) yet so adorably heartwarming, mainly due to the voice-over of the cat (Sakamoto Maaya is ❤️) Can't wait to see how the Korean version of it and tackled more onto the owner's personality and Yoo Seung-ho/Cat? YES PLEASE.

Longtime lurker, first time commenter here. Btw, this webtoon and adaptation sounds very much like the 2013 Japanese movie called Kimi to Boku starring Nakamura Aoi (you can even find the subbed version on youtube), about a struggling manga artist working part time at a convenience store.

And not sure about the webtoon, but there's no female lead in the movie. The cat is basically the other half of the equation.

If this drama is half as good as that movie, I might consider watching it.

I really really don't like cats. But I'll watch it for Yoo Seung Ho. And the maybe slice-of-life.

PD-nim, please cast Yoon Eun Hye as the female lead. Great chemistry has been proven in Missing You despite the terrible plot in the second part. Park Shin Hye is another good choice imo.
