Secret Zoo is based on a webcomic, revolves around the story of a trainee lawyer from a major law firm, Tae-soo, who is appointed as the head of Dongsan Park, a near bankrupt zoo, and put in charge of revitalizing it.
Almost all the animals at the zoo, especially the big ones that people usually come to see, are sold to pay off debt, and Tae-soo plans an extraordinary project to “imitate” the animals.
