Synopsis and Plot Summary

A wondrous romance between Liang Qu who is cursed to live as a human and a cat and Miao Xiaowen, the developer of an app that interprets cat language. If he falls in love, the curse cannot be lifted, but at the same time, the woman he loves could fall into danger. How will he choose?

Liang Qu (Sehun) was cursed by a cat when he was a teenager and forced to leave the girl that he loves to begin life as half human and half cat. Nine years later, internet product manager Miao Xiaowan (Janice Wu) has developed a "cat language translator" app. Overjoyed and feeling a sense of accomplishment, Xiaowan never expected that the app would be publicly criticized by animal expert Liang Qu. In order to make Liang Qu take back his negative review, Xiaowan becomes Liang Qu's assistant and follows him in learning the cat language. As the two develop feelings for each other, Liang Qu discovers that it is not their first time falling in love...
