We get more insights on Jong-hyun’s past life – his first love and how he met the cat, Bok-gil. It’s just so adorableee!
Third chapter namely “Oh! My Muse” of the show is basically about the muse and yes, it’s the cat! Bok-gil is Jong-hyun’s muse as he finally comes up with idea for his new project when Bok-gil steps all over his paper with paw prints.
Partially, I feel that Na-woo is also another muse as she suggested trying to draw what is most dear to Jong-hyun who gets annoyed getting stuck with her throughout the night at the book shop.
HAH, it’s hilarious when Dokko-soon gets drunk and upset, saying that Bok-gil is just a cat, having thought Bok-gil was Jong-hyun’s girlfriend. “I must be a woman who is not even as good as a cat.” Hahah. xD Hae-gong explains that Bok-gil’s existence is a miracle after Jong-hyun’s close friend died and lost motivation to draw.
Speaking of, we get to hear Bok-gil’s narrative voice as she is scared and alone at home, about how she was abandoned years ago. We also hear Jong-hyun’s narrative voice as the past himself discovered Bok-gil as kitten near where his first love’s urn was at. Aw, this scene~
Na-woo has mentioned about celebrating Bok-gil’s birthday as it is the day when Jong-hyun had found her, so they celebrated with stacks of cat food. Aw, look at the little hat on top of Bok-gil’s head! So obedient, hehe.
In fourth chapter “Let Me In”, beside the backstory of how Jong-hyun and Bok-gil meet, we also learn bit of how Jong-hyun’s first love, Jung Soo-in (played by Solar), left the world. It’s just weird, though. It’s like another mystery surfaces as we learn that Soo-in committed suicide. What’s strange is that Soo-in had confessed to Jong-hyun but he didn’t give her his answer (we all know that he liked her too).
It is a great regret for Jong-hyun who, in present, ponders why he didn’t say it that time.
Jong-hyun and Na-woo continue to bond over cats as the cat who Na-woo has been feeding died and blames the ahjussi for killing it. Jong-hyun manages to calm her down, saying that stray cats die on street and that her cat, Haru, is well somewhere.
As people don’t live forever, animals too. Jong-hyun tells Na-woo that he is mentally prepared for the saddest day when Bok-gil might pass on. Bok-gil has grown older now that she is having a hard time jumping up on the chair when it used to be easy. Aw, man. Na-woo tells him to keep loving her as that is the best thing a human could do.
Hah, I love how grumpy Bok-gil is when she tells Jong-hyun to get lost as he comes home later than he told her. But, she is eased as Jong-hyun massages her, hehe.
Having wanted to see Bok-gil, Na-woo invites herself to Jong-hyun’s home as she guesses correctly, taking Jong-hyun by surprise. Girl, really, wow. Bok-gil approaches the door and thinks to herself that the human has never let any woman other than herself in past seven years.
“What are you doing? Hurry and tell her no!” Now, is Jong-hyun going to let Na-woo into his home?
If so, Na-wo would probably be the first woman to be ever let in his house in seven years. Wow, seven years! Speaking of seven years, that’s how long since Na-woo has lost her cat, Haru. All the more it’s likely Bok-gil is the lost kitten Haru. However, seven years is a long time and Bok-gil is now grown up (oh so adorably fatty) so Na-woo most likely won’t be able to recognise Haru. If only there is a marking or something on Bok-gil.
I like how Jong-hyun has long-time friend, Hae-gong, so that he is not lonely at all. At least there is his friend who understands him and his attachment to a cat. That, like in previous episode, Hae-gong knows how his friend is a sucker for cat stuffs like cat food to make him come out all the way, hehe.
