Watched this movie for both Park Bo Young (loved her in Speedy Scandal) and of course, the ethereal Song Joongki. I had high expectations and I wasn't disappointed in any way.

Although this movie was done in flashback, it was easy to follow and did not leave me confused (like certain flashback movies). The story line was great albeit a little too simple, with its fair share of hilarious antics and sad read more moments that had me crying like a baby. Nevertheless, the story was more than well-supported by an amazing cast. Bo Young was fantastic as Suni. She acted really well and her crying scenes made me cry MORE than her!

The star of the show has got to be Joong Ki, definitely. As much as I love him, I have never really considered him as an amazing actor (because the roles he were given so far were not so challenging, i guess). But he proved his worth in this movie due to his versatility. And catch this - he has barely 5 lines in the entire movie! This goes to show how great of an actor he is, being able to carry a story along just through actions. Super impressed!

I love, love, love this movie and consider this to be the best work of both of them so far. Will rewatch it!

This movie should have been made silent... I mean with no words... I honestly would watch with the same pleasure as I just did... the words in this movie were even distracting... ChulSu's silence was telling so much... so much... the words were unnecessary...

This movie is perfect with just the light and bitter-sweet music and perfect, so perfect acting, the colors it has, the beautiful yellow and deep blue, the calm read more air it has around...the words are distracting...

If you think you are going to watch a story how a girl made a human out of a boy raised/born as a wolf, you are so far away from what you are going to see in this movie. This is a story about people, how some people look like monsters and are the most humane beings you could find, this is a story about people that look nice, but the worst monsters you could have the misfortune to meet... this is a story about choice and responsibility we bear for every person we meet in our life, how our smallest action can influence their life, how their action - could influence yours, how careful you should be with the words you use, as you never know what it will mean for the person before you...

I am really fighting for words with my brain to explain in what a mess I am right now, this movie just blew the air out of me, and I am really fighting to bring a string of cohesive thought back into my head (that is full of guitars, alphabet letters, yellow fields and blue forests, books and sweaters, shoe-laces and pencils, and finally JoongKi's eyes, oh, those eyes...)

In the beginning I mentioned about the words in the movie, well, believe it or not, JoongKi says only 10 words in the movie (and you'll be sane enough to hear only 1 of them, as then you'll still be holding on, but when the other 9 will be said, you'll be... as I was... weeping into you blanket/pillow, not to wake your parents...)

This movie was one of the most beautifully shot movies I have ever seen, so much calmness and so many colors...

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

'Dog' turned human romance story. Chul Soo (Song Joong Ki)'s character is like a wolf that suddenly gained a human body [yes he is a werewolf but this is how his character acts] where Shiro (Toyokawa Etsushi) is shown to be a guide dog given a human body to find the girl that raised him as a puppy. If you liked one you'll probably like the other.

    OMG this movie.... ruined my whole week!! ;.; The last time I felt soo many feels and distress over a film was when I watched ''Hotarubi no mori e'' where at the end part I cried a river. This was SOO BEAUTIFUL AND MEANINGFUL. I never expected I would end up all worked up and crying through the whole movie T^T. I need to watch.again.

    Going into a corner now and crying until my next life. (((((TT____TT)))))))))

    I was initially on the same brainwave as @icecrusher below thinking this was going to be a poorly executed attempt at a supernatural drama, but since the rating was so high and I've haven't seen any of Song Joong Ki's work since SKK Scandal, I gave it a go....
    TWO THUMBS WAY UP, GUYS! d(TT__TT)b
    Watch it!

    To think that i was against watching this in the 1st place, thinkng that the plot was lame. I couldn't have been more wrong. Haha. I bawled my eyes out, paused, went to wash my face, came back to replay the scene again n bawled harder. Hahahaha. The acting of the leads n the storyline was daebak. Must-watch.

    I went to re-watch this today and the plot is still clear to me so I thought I wouldn't cry. I was also eating my big lunch while I was watching so I REALLY didn't expect myself to cry. But even so, I dropped my spoon and started bawling. This is so sad. ;-;

    This movie breaks my heart. It's one of those movies which I wish I could watch repeatedly, but know that I can't because of the heart break.

    my favorite movie ever! The acting was amazing, especially song joong ki he barely had any lines yet he was able to express so much feelings. The song that bo young sang is really beautiful. The ending made me lose a box of tissue <3 definitely a 10/10!

    Wow... this movie was soo touching. Really beautiful. Song Joong Ki did amazing job <3 BUT I watched this version where she is an old lady in last scene and didn't cry at all, maybe one single tear. In comments below I saw this link for alternative ending and when I watched this version I cried like a baby T.T this version of ending makes more sense to me - it gives you some kind of hope... Anyway movie worth to watch!
