Jo Hye Jung and Yoo Seung Ho Score Main Leads for New Web Drama
Jo Hye Jung and Yoo Seung Ho will be joining forces for a new web drama.
On October 19, an MBC Every1 insider said Jo Hye Jung has been casted as the female lead for the web drama “Imaginary Cat,” which Yoo Seung Ho is already the male lead for.
“Imaginary Cat” is based off a popular webtoon series that tells the story of a human and cat living together. Not only is it the first drama about cats, but it will also be Yoo Seung Ho’s comeback piece since his release from the military.
Jo Hye Jung will play the role of Oh Na Woo, a character who looks after stray cats out of grief and guilt of losing her own pet. After setting eyes on Hyun Jong Hyun, played by Yoo Seung Ho, she falls in love at first sight and is not afraid to show it.
Hyun Jong Hyun is a webtoon artist and a part time worker at a bookstore. Though he is determined to live life his own way, his stubbornness and self-centered attitude is problematic. Bokgil, his pet cat, is the only one he opens up to and his sole source of motivation to make a living.
“‘Imaginary Cat’ is the first Korean drama to be based off of cats,” Lee Hyun Joo, producer of “Imaginary Cat” said. “It is a healing drama that teaches people the important values and emotions in life and how to love through cats. These cats comfort the youth who are chasing their dreams.”
“Imaginary Cat” will be aired later next month.
