This movie really blew me away..... I looked it up...and it looked good and interesting, I decided to watch it....

Howling shows the viewers what and how reality is.....the exact picture.... how women are been treated poorly, even though we say we are in a civilised and developed world....The issues causing chaos -- drugs, sex trafficking, prostitution and all..... What happens when you overstep your boundaries when talking to your boss.... Family read more issues

I love animals, as in dogs, cats and the rest.....but keeping them as pets isn't a tempting offer ....but I couldn't stop the tears.... We have the story of the wolf (wolfdog), how it was trained.....

Howling is all about making use of the system and thinking out of the box to get what you want.....well that's what was done in Howling....

It's WORTH the watch.... I'm not good at re-watching movies and all, that's why it's a 7...

    That was an interesting thriller, it wasn't that extraordinary but the different type of killer was surely worth it. I don't believe the film's main focus was the mystery element, it wouldn't be a simple type of thriller if that was the case. I am certain that they wanted to pull the audience attention towards the characters' interactions and emotions instead.

    Song Kang Ho ahjussi's character wasn't as penetrating as usual but his acting and screen presence is always one heck of a pleasure, just seeing him on screen makes me so comfortable. Lee Na Young was a bit lacking compared to previous roles I saw her in. But the girl is good, I will probably watch more of her.

    The identification with the wofl/dog made this movie interesting for me. But there were plotholes and loose ends-forgotten threads that I was left to wonder about. I liked Lee Na Young even though her performance didn't feel very confident.

    I love this movie, I feel that the dogwolf is more a hero than a murderer. That's what Eun Young and Sang Kill released. That's why it's so sad.
    I love Sang Kill's comment to Taw Won "I missed".

    This movie left me with mix feelings. I couldn't stand the opening yet I loved the ending. I just found all of the characters annoying except the poor victimized girl and the dog. Part of me wants to give this movie a 2 and the other part wants to give this movie an 8. I just loved ending while I also found it uncalled for. I want to hate this movie so much but I can't help but like it and almost love it.

      You hate it because it shows the reality and you love it because it shows the reality. That's how it is!
      Just like me :)
