'Meow: The Secret Boy' Episode 2: Kim Myung-soo's Hong-jo interrupts Sol-ah and Jae-seon before they kiss
Hong-jo gets sad whenever he sees Sol-ah and Jae-seon but none of them know the cat can change into a man
The second episode of 'Meow: The Secret Boy' is titled with that famous 'Nan Porters quote': "If Cats could talk, they wouldn't".
The episode sees Sol-ah (Shin Ye-eun) and her newly adopted cat move to a new house after her father moved to the countryside with the woman that he is dating. This house ends up being situated right opposite to Jae-seon's (Seo Ji-hoon) cafe. Sol-ah initially hides from him everything and leaves for work and returns as usual. The cat-human (Kim Myung-soo) who watches her is impressed at the amount of work she is putting in to avoid Jae-seon.
Once she leaves for work, the cat also begins to explore the house, and that's when the cat-human learns that he changes into a human in the presence of things that belong to Sol-ah. The cat-human has begun to develop feelings for her, but every time he sees her with Jae-seon, the cat-human becomes sad. While the cat-human is still exploring an all-new world, Sol-ah is trying hard to keep her feelings for Ju-seon hidden.
One day, Ju-seon figures out that Sol-ah lives right next door to his cafe. He is Sol-ah's Byeodal Love — her ideal type. He even inspired her to write a graphic novel.
However, Sol-ah who is sick herself ends up feeding her cat normal milk, because of which the cat — now named Hong-jo — falls sick. This in a way becomes a turning point in Sol-ah's and Hong-jo's relationships. He also takes care of Sol-ah who falls extremely sick after getting drenched in rain not once but twice. However, she is not aware of any of this.
Even when she meets Hong-jo in human form, when he saves her from a bad fall, she thinks that he is a guy from the neighborhood and doesn't give him much thought except to feel bad that she couldn't thank him. You see, he disappeared. So far, both Jae-seon and Sol-ah have seen him, but it isn't until the end of the episode that both of them come face to face with Hong-jo's human form at Sol-ah's house.
This comes right after Sol-ah freaks out in her home. She sees the stuffed toy she had given to the man who had saved her in the house and that freaks her out. How could it have ended up back in her home? So she goes running to Jae-seon's cafe and asks him to help her look for the man. However, all the two of them find is their cat Hong-jo.
Then things get intense between Sol-ah and Jae-seon, which almost leads to them kissing but Hong-jo ends up interrupting in his human form. Will Sol-ah continue to care for the cat or will Hong-jo have to find a new place?
New episodes of 'Meow: The Secret Boy' will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays on KBS2 at 10 pm.
