    Meow the secret boy is nice drama. Every episode is full with fastistic things. I can’t understand Why it’s rating lower in Korea .We aren’t not korea so it is difficult to watch live streaming but we watch live streaming because it is so cute drama. All cast and crew are amazing. Story is aslo different among ordinary drama. In our country it is famous Drama. I also have read webtoon but I watch because of casts. I right. It give different feeling to me.

    This drama is actually refreshing and unique, it’s entertaining and personally, all of the episodes are good. Viewers should watch such dramas keeping in mind the theme and the nature of the storyline, not all dramas are meant to reflect reality, many shows such as this reflect several interesting themes like human relationships or human nature but in a different, more imaginative manner, themes of love, friendship, human emotions and the like are reflected in a fantasy-based manner in this drama in a more or less satisfying way, this drama deserves better ratings for sure

    who cares about the ratings, right? We all know that some dramas with high ratings are not all good, and not all dramas with poor rating are totally bad. It’s just a matter of wrong time slot, underappreciated, not their cup of tea, etc. Remember that there are viewers internationally that spend their precious time streaming live (Including me) even without subtitle and not counted in their ratings. As long as the drama touches the heart of many, it’s all that matters. It may be flop in their own country but well received and recognized internationally because of its unique plot.
    To sum up, I LOVE THIS DRAMA. One of my favorites. Highly recommended. Again, don’t be swayed by poor ratings. It’s worth a shot!

      I personally enjoy this drama. Love the cast. Main lead girl’s acting is really funny. She makes me laugh and Kim Myung Soo is just handsome as always. So far it’s been really funny and cute. Don’t care about ratings, I’ve watched plenty of high rated dramas that i didn’t enjoy. Two thumbs up for Meow the Secret Boy. <3Hongjo

    It’s not that interesting, at first the concept was but as the episodes went on, the plot becomes like any other kid like show. It’s innocent nonetheless but not interesting enough to be hooked. Nothing that really grabs attention.
