MBC is planning a new romance drama based on the webtoon Cat and Dog by artist-writer Park Hee-jung, about a 19-year-old girl and a celebrity who enter into an arranged marriage because of their families.
The webtoon is about a 19-year-old high school student who’s raised in a very traditional household, as if she’s still stuck in the Joseon era. Her grandfather has already arranged her marriage since childhood, and she’s given pictures of her future husband to look forward to as she grows up.
The hero is a minor celebrity who’s famous for publicly dating a star, and he gets dragged into the arranged marriage by Grandpa against his will. She’s described as a naive girl with dog-like devotion, while he’s a cat-like character who hides his emotions from the world. The drama will be about them navigating this bizarre relationship, and of course finding love along the way.
