Yoo Seung-ho and cat co-star at press conference for Imaginary Cat

Okay, how in the world did they get that cat to go to a press conference??? My cat would NOT stand for that, not even a little. I mean, I could probably get him there, but someone would be losing an eye. Either that is the most well-behaved cat in the history of cats, or Yoo Seung-ho really does have some kind of magical powers. I’m willing to believe both are true, actually.

The new MBC Every1 series Imaginary Cat held its press conference on November 24, which is cutting it a little close since the show actually premieres today. Yoo Seung-ho was there with Cat Bok-gil, along with human co-stars Jo Hye-jung (Because It’s the First Time), Han Yeri (Sea Fog), Park Chul-min (Bubblegum), and Mamamoo idol Solar.

The drama is about the relationship between a webtoon artist and his feline friend, and the way they help each other heal. Though Yoo Seung-ho has filmed the movie Joseon Magician since returning from army duty, Imaginary Cat is the first project that he’ll greet audiences with. Then of course his other drama, SBS’s Remember—Son’s War, is close behind — it’s due to premiere in early December.

An 8-episode cable drama with no other big stars is pretty low-profile for Yoo Seung-ho, but when asked about why he chose the project, he said, “It’s because I like cats, but it’s also because I thought it would be a good opportunity to change people’s awareness about animals. It would be nice if the drama did well, but I wanted to convey a meaningful message beyond that.” Well I didn’t think it was possible to love him more, but there you have it.

Imaginary Cat premieres today and airs on Tuesdays on MBC Every1.

It's not pleasant to contemplate, but it's possible the cat is drugged.

That's a possibility, but this is also a cat actor, which means it's probably quite easy going and well trained compared to the average cat.

That cat is scottish fold. The breed is very docile and loves attention. You can look it up at Youtube "Pets 101:Scottish Fold cat".

Bok Gil even has her place as a lead in the character chart and has her own character description. It's silly and I love it. I really hope this is a show as cute and fluffy as Beetle.

I feel like the cat's facial expression in one of those pics is saying 'I would have clawed someone's eyes out were it not for the handsome man holding me.'

The cat's unamused/disinterested default face absolutely cracks me up. Cats possess some of the most epic resting bitch face in the animal kingdom.

That breed of cat, with folded ears, is extremely docile and loves being floppy in human arms. I was actually surprised to see this, but I googled and sure enough, Scottish Folds are available in Korea.

It's like Korean version of Garfield. The cat they used looks like Garfield and also Garfield's owner Jon was a cartoonist and in this one, he is a webtoon artist.

You are right, JB, this cat is one of the most calm, well-behaved and gentle cats I have ever seen!

The people behind choosing the cat have done a great job because the role requires a cat that is more of a lap-cat, ie a cat that just loves to lay on a person's lap and just laze around because most cat species are very active, energetic and boisterous, thus they would be too much of a handful, definitely not suitable for an acting role.

But from these photos of YSH cooooing to the cat, I am struck by how REALLY calm, patient, gentle the cat is in YSH's arms, not wriggling or fidgeting endlessly, or bothered by the harsh camera lights and noise from the people present!

You may be right again, JB, YSH just might be born with a magical touch with cats, a cat-whisperer perhaps?

It is also just so lovely to see how loving and gentle YSH is with the cat, holding the cat so close and tight in his arms and coooing and having direct eye contact with it!!

A. MA. ZING!!!

Because you said "the cat is cool [...] but their outfits" so the cat seemed to me still part of the subject...I probably read "and" instead of "but." lol I must not have been all that awake yet...

OMG this is exactly what I wanted for the press conference. The pic where the cat is looking at him like YSH is his/her(?) papa. Oh goodness.

It makes sense the cat is super well trained and maybe (lol ok I'm guessing definitely) YSH has already spent a lot of time with it on and offset. GAH! So cute!

Reminds me of the time my daughter was on skype with her first boyfriend. She was showing him how her cat licks her cheek on command when his cat came in his room. He grabbed her very quickly and said "this is my cat, she really likes me too." Cue the cat clawing him to near death. I found my daughter rolling on the floor in laughter. Needless to say the young romance didn't last, but they are still friends at school. Every time somebody talks about cats in class she turns to him and makes cat clawing signals.
