Episode 11

The production staff prepares a small farewell party for Deokgu, where Dae Byeol sings for them while playing his guitar, something that he has been avoiding doing for a long time. Uno looks at him fondly before returning his attention to Daekgu and taking group photos of them. When the clock reaches nine, Uno, Jun Hyuk, and Dae Byeol visit Daekgu’s playpen, which is about to undergo euthanasia. Uno apologizes to Daekgu as he pets his weak body, while Dae Byeol tells him that he is sure that the dog is grateful to him for saving him back then. As the tears continue, Uno thanks Daekgu for helping him overcome his trauma and for sharing with him good memories to remember. He asks Daekgu to be the one to welcome him into heaven once he dies. As Jun Hyuk euthanizes Daekgu, Dae Byeol hugs Uno close to him. Unknown to them, Eun Young turns on the cameras and airs the aforementioned footage on the show, much to everyone’s surprise. Dae Byeol and Uno realize that Eun Young knew they were about to euthanize Daekgu, and she used it to earn high ratings for the show. Uno gets mad and confronts Eun Young, who remains unbothered as she stands by her decision that Daekgu’s death will generate views and even says that it’s for the former’s popularity. Uno abruptly decides to quit the show, prompting Eun Young to remind him of the scandal she once threatened him with. However, Uno answers that she can reveal his paternal relationship to the public, adding that he never really cared about the revelation. Eun Young’s previous threats only swayed Uno because he was concerned about what people would say to his deceased mother. Seong Ju follows Uno as he walks out to their car. Meanwhile, Dae Byeol orders Eun Young and her team to leave the dog cafe alone.

Dae Byeol runs after Uno, but his car has already left. On the other hand, Uno, who is now back in the comforts of his home, can’t help but stare at Dae Byeol’s photos on his phone and ends up thinking about him the whole night. Meanwhile, Dae Byeol goes to Uno’s quarters, which are now vacant except for the dog cafe uniform that he left. He, too, reminisces about his moments with Uno before he leaves the place. The following day, Eun Young and the team left, and the dog cafe returned to normal. To Dae Byeol’s surprise, Uno arrives, and the two finally talk as they sit close to each other. Uno admits that he fell for Dae Byeol the very first time he saw him in front of the animal clinic, and how fortunate he felt when he saw him again for the show. Staying with Dae Byeol taught him how to love not only animals but also other people, which is why he feels bad that Daekgu, who is very close to Dae Byeol’s heart, was used for the show without their consent. After hearing Uno’s perspective, Dae Byeol reveals that his preference for animals over people stems from his use of them as a protective mechanism against getting hurt by other people. Finally, he tells Uno about Chi Seob, an upperclassman with whom he fell in love and became in a relationship. Chi Seob has always admired Dae Byeol’s singing and guitar-playing abilities, but their relationship unravels when they become exposed. Chi Seob moves to another country despite Dae Byeol’s plea for him to stay. After his heartbreak, Dae Byeol begins to fear singing and falling in love with another person once again; hence, he guards himself from Uno. Realizing that Dae Byeol has his fears too, just like him, Uno comforts the latter and tells him that from now on, he has him to tell his secrets to. The two confess that they liked each other from the very first time they laid eyes on each other and finally kissed.

Episode 12

Manager Pi meets up with the journalist, who gives him a photo of Uno and Dae Byeol kissing and pays him a huge sum of money. Meanwhile, Uno seeks help from CEO Pyo to get in touch with Eun Young about continuing the show. However, before they can even contact him, Seong Ju arrives and shows them articles about Uno and Dae Byeol dating. The article also includes exclusive pictures from the dog cafe. Manager Pi, on the other hand, advises Uno’s father that his son’s dating issues might damage the company and suggests Uno return to Thailand.

Back at the cafe, Gi Min overhears Jun Hyuk and Dae Byeol’s conversation about the articles. Dae Byeol assures Jun Hyuk that he is fine and expresses that he is more worried about Uno, who has a celebrity image to maintain. Dae Byeol hurt and reminded of his relationship with Chi Seob, understands that Uno must part ways with him. He trusts that, just like before, he will be able to handle it himself. Later that evening, Uno calls, and Dae Byeol asks how he is doing. Dae Byeol also tells Uno to deny their relationship and say that it was all his fault. Uno refuses, but Dae Byeol tells him that he could lose everything that he has. The following day, Dae Byeol confronts Gi Min as he sees from the CCTV that it was he who took the private photos of him and Uno. He also handed out the photos to the journalist just outside the dog cafe. Gi Min confesses that he did it because he is in love with Dae Byeol, and Uno’s arrival has stolen Dae Byeol’s attention. Gi Min admits that he wants to get rid of Uno because he wants Dae Byeol’s attention to be on him alone. Dae Byeol rejects Gi Min’s confessions, although he doesn’t answer when the latter asks if it’s because of Uno. 

CEO Pyo organizes a press conference for Uno to clear his name, where he admits honestly that he is the person in the photos and that he has no regrets about the person he is with. Meanwhile, Dae Byeol watches the press conference with Jun Hyuk and Gi Min by his side. They are shocked that Uno talked in public about Dae Byeol and how he loves him romantically. Uno’s public admission of his relationship with Dae Byeol garnered positive comments from the public. Later, Uno’s father calls Manager Pi to his office. To her surprise, she discovers Uno with a confession from the journalist: Manager Pi, who is Uno’s stepsister, hired him to backstab her brother. Manager Pi tries to convince their father that she is the one who worked hard for the company, and she cannot accept that Uno will get all the credits. Uno says that the only reason he met up with his father was not because of his company, but because it was his mother’s wish for him to meet with his father. Their father tells Manager Pi that she will go to Thailand alone as a punishment. He also tells Uno to bring Dae Byeol next time and introduce them at some point. Uno agrees and finally reconciles with him. 

A few days later, Seong Ju drives Uno once again to the dog cafe. Now, dressed more appropriately in a tracksuit, Uno is ready for a day of labor. Seong Ju teases Uno to prepare well, as he will most likely face hardships he never had before. Inside the production tent, Eun Young directs the camera to zoom on Uno’s face as they officially start Doobi Doobi Jab Season 2. Uno finds Dae Byeol, Gi Min, and Jun Hyuk waiting for him at the entrance of the dog cafe. To his surprise, the three are wearing suits just like when he first arrived. They tease each other at how the tables have turned, but to start with the new season, Dae Byeol teases Uno to wear a suit as well. While Gi Min and Jun Hyuk watch them fondly, Dae Byeol approaches Uno, and the two whisper ‘I love you’ to each other before they kiss.

 

Writer’s Thoughts

We can’t believe we finally reached the end of Hanyang Studio’s first installment. We loved how unexpectedly cute the chemistry between Dae Byeol and Uno was, despite the personality and language differences. It truly shows that love knows no borders or barriers, and for some reason, while there were not many lines where they used each other’s native language, it still worked for us that we didn’t notice much of the difference. What we also think will pull in the audience is how the dogs are cared for throughout the show and how it highlights that dogs or any kind of animal are not just animals under the ecology, but they could also become family or friends to someone else, just like Gold and Daekgu did for Uno. The villain, we might say, or at least the gray character in the show, PD Lee or Eun Young, also did a great job of testing our patience to its limit. It just shows how effective an actor the actress behind the role is. We also loved Jun Hyuk’s unfiltered personality and how shameless Gi Min can be (although we still feel bitter about his betrayal, we guess we could be like Dae Byeol and forgive him). There isn’t much angst given the short run time per episode but we guess that it is one of the show’s strong points, to give the viewer a light show for a change. 

Overall, ‘Love is Like a Cat’ is a quick watch that you can go for if you’re looking for something sweet and want to cater to your fur parents’ cravings, so if that is your pill, then this show is definitely for you!
