“Meow The Secret Boy” is doing terribly in ratings so much so that it has broken a record!

The KBS series, based on a webcomic, ratings have been dwindling for a while now since it began airing. April 16 episodes broke a record, according to Nielsen Korea, “Meow The Secret Boy” recorded 0.9% and 1.1% in average viewership ratings thus becoming the lowest-rated drama from a public channel overtaking KBS “Manhole” which recorded 1.4%.




Its previous episodes didn’t reach the 0% range and it has been wavering around the 1% in ratings, “Meow The Secret Boy” is only halfway through its run. It has 8 more (1 hour long) episodes to go.

“Meow The Secret Boy” stars Kim Myung Soo, Shin Ye Eun, and Seo Ji Hoon, it tells the story of a romance between a cat who takes human form and a dog-like owner.

Have you seen “Meow The Secret Boy”? Do you think it deserves this rating?





My Personal Thoughts

While I don’t think “Meow The Secret Boy” is anywhere near the worst kdrama ever made, I understand the ratings in this case and its self-explanatory. A love line between a human and a cat is very creepy and disgusting to say the least.

I have a lot to say about “Meow The Secret Boy” but I reserve it for the review which I will post shortly on this blog. A part of me can’t believe this webcomic was made into a drama, how?

  1. I’m actually enjoying this drama more then they highly hyped and so far overrated King: Eternal Monarch. I agree though a love story between an animal and human seems…well odd. I keep hoping there is some out-of-the-blue twist that would make such a thing ok. How does one write themselves out of the current corner the drama is in? Overall, I think the acting is good and i’m interested to see how the story resolves.

  2. The drama showed that love has many depictions.. love to your pet, family, friends and work.Meow the secret boy is a fantasy drama but it tackles the reality of life.. 1. Animal hoarding 2. Pet owner responsibility 3. Abandonment of pets if they are old and useless 4. Creative artists overwork and compensation 5. Work professionalism.. i thank kim myung soo for bravely choosing this drama. He has become a true actor indeed! A true actor dont care about ratings because for them their acting is their passion and what is important is that he can impart lessons in life to viewers!

  3. okay most of the people think it’s weird and creepy and i think maybe some parts yeah but i liked the drama so much and it made me tear up in the last episode. The cat actor was so cute too. The ending was ok i mean i could be better, at first i was so shooked that hong jo wouldn’t turn in to human but i’m so glad he did turn at the end. the drama left me with a good feeling and that’s important 🙂

  4. For me, the most striking feature in this movie is communicating as an animal but on human face and it is beyond our linguistics knowledge. I think actor Kim Myung Soo can completely portray the message he wants to convey as a cat through his eye contact. Even if it is a silent film, the audience can understand the meaning of the plots through his eyes. As a linguist, I would like to show my respect to him for this ability. In this movie, even in just one minute, I got a lot of language items interpreted through his eyes that a cat wants to say in his own way. The thing that impressed me a lot is the difference between his eyes in the first episode and those in the last episode portraying the gradual maturity of a cat who lives in the society in the form of a man and falls in love with a human and I think it is the key to understand the essence of this drama.

  5. The drama is seriously the worst I’ve ever seen. I really dislike the storyline, it feels weird to see a cat in love with his owner and what makes it worse for me is the style of the drama idk If they aimed for more relaxing drama, but the lightning is just creepy and unpleasant !! I love both the actors I find em attractive and talented but their choices are going down the hill specially the main lead, he makes me wonder DOES THIS DUDE HATE BEING A HUMAN FOR ONCE ? his previous drama was amazing and the story was acceptable and well written but this one No just NO. I HOPE I really do I can see em both once again in a drama where he is a human and with a better story.

    • hey its not worst drama, it is a fantasy story so it’s not that disgusting because a cat feel in love with his owner. i think you don’t know the meaning of it. I liked it because the boy is always staying next to the girl and not leaving her alone even his time being human is done. I think you didn’t watch the whole thing that’s why you’re saying it, just watch it all so you can really understand it. 🙂
