I can't even beginning with this movie. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but in a good way. From previews I've seen, I was expecting that typical oh a werewolf meets a cute girl love story but it was so much better than that.

Most of the film is focused through a flashback. It was extremely easy to follow, you knew exactly what was going on and why. The beginning seemed read more a little bit boring to me but that lasted for 10 or so minutes.

The cast, oh my god the cast. This is the first work I've seen from Joong ki (well completed anyways) and I am completely blown away by his acting in this. He barely had any dialogue but seemed to be acting just as well as everyone else. He really embraced his role. His eyes and facial expressions can say A LOT, literally killing me heart.

This is also my first time watching something with Bo Young in it & wow. I've watched countless movies and dramas were actresses cry and it's just like, oh wow that's so fake it hurts. But Bo Young's crying scenes were great. Everything felt so real. I give her so much credit for her A+ acting. The supporting cast was amazing too. The bad guy, the parents, the children etc. I loved everyones role.

Music was perfect in the sense that they played the right kind of music at the right time.

Overall, such an amazing movie. bawled my eyes at towards the end. The ending left a sort of lump in my throat. (watch and you'll understand). Also would like to add that this movie had some extremely cute parts to where I had to keep rewinding because I couldn't handle Joong Ki's cuteness.

I don't know if i can handle watching this again, but I would definitely recommend this to anyone that's debating on this. Stop, just watch & enjoy.

Story:
This was my most favourite Korean movie everrrrrrr. I don't know why, but I just fell in love with it. The story was cute, funny, sad, heart wrenching and very emotional (for me anyway). Of course the story was very unrealistic, however it was very believable (and made me wish I had a werewolf boy too).

Acting/Cast:
The only thing I need to say is: Song Joong Ki. The end. Great read more actor, I know, I know. He is a pro at capturing the audience's heart. He was also a pro at playing a dog boy, like unbelievably pro, to the extent of almost being a dog boy. I think he is definitely what made this movie so great for me. Of course the female lead was also nice and helped to make the movie great... but Song Joong Ki is the winner.

Music:
It was nice. I don't really remember it that well... but I never do really remember music from movies. All I know is that if the music wasn't good then the movie wouldn't have been as great as it was!

Rewatch?
Yesssss! I think I watched it three times in the same week I first watched it. I had to show my whole family. Even my sister who dislikes watching Korean movies and dramas cried and fell in love with Joong Ki. No joke.

Overall:
This is THE BEST Korean movie (in my opinion). I'm so glad I watched it. It was so nice. I may have lost many litres of tears in the process of watching it, but it was worth it. I recommend everyone watch it. It will only take 2hours of your life and I doubt you will regret it and if you do, I'm sorry that you didn't like it. YES watch it.

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.

    This was the second time I've watched this movie, and I think I cried more this time than the first! It's hard to see him as the werewolf creature because he was so gentle otherwise. I'm not surprised this movie sold 7+ million tickets. It's just that good! Who knows, I may even watch it a third time ;) I highly recommend watching this, but bring plenty of tissues! You'll need them ;)

    The choices to watch this I found so far are on Dailymotion or Netflix.

    Netflix was a great choice but if you don't have Netflix then dailymotion is going to be okay :)

    After two years of this movie being on my to watch list. I finally watched it and I really enjoyed it! I didn't cry mainly because the ending could have been better in my opinion. I still recommend it.
