This movie left me feeling sad. I'm odd maybe, but movies and dramas leave an impact on me. Enough to affect me for the rest of the day/week/ or however long.

It's a simple storyline which we all would have seen in some form or another. This hurt. I was hurt when Suni left him and was hurt when she left him again for a second time.

The acting is excellent and read more the movie, well done. I wish you could do away with bad guys in movies because they cause so much trouble to prospective lovers and people. Yoo Yeon Seok plays such a horrible villain you'd want to stop watching. Cheol-su and Suni's innocence and love are well portrayed by Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Young.

I'd like to give it a high re-watch value but it hurt me enough not to watch it again. Watch it when you are not having a bad/ sad day.

I was so eager to finally get the english subtitles for this movie. I was debating on whether or not I should just watch the movie without subtitles and just guess on what they're saying. Knowing what they're saying is the only way to enjoy and know what's happening and to watch it without knowing anything would be a torture. But to say the least, this movie did not disappoint. It was read more a great movie with a great plot and the characters are really amazing.

The worst thing I could say is that I was really disappointed with the ending. I think that they could have done more to change the ending a little, but I just didn't like the way they just left it at that. If they ever make a sequel, I would definitely want to know what happens after that.

For those Song Joong Ki fans, I think you already know he doesn't talk in this movie much, but it is indeed very rewarding for those scenes that he does. I would definitely recommend this movie to others as well since I think this is the only drama/movie that I've given a 10 on in ratings.

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.

    Song Joong Ki must be recognized on this movie! It is tough to use facial expression and no script or lines to play his role effectively. This is definitely a MUST watch movie!

    AMAZING! To be loved like that is what I wish for. The plot, the characters portrayed by the most amazing actors, the gorgeous scenery & the fun, sad, haunting & agonizing moments converged in the most amazing ending. The chemistry between the leads was off the charts. You could fill everything they felt for each other with every glance, touch & word. The supporting characters were there for a specific reason & did not feel unnecessary. The beautiful OST really helped create all the moods the writers wanted. This movie grasped you from the beginning, captivating & hooking you for the entire journey to bring you to that an ending that although sad was also fulfilling & leaves you full of emotions, regrets & hopes. This is a movie that will be on my Top 5 List & I'll be re-watching over & over.

      This isn't a romance story to begin. It's a story about a monsters. I believe it is why Chulsoo's background is never given. Same with Ji Tae. There is no romance here. The story is meant to ask you what a monster is. One person is a monster in appearance yet another is a monster at heart. The one who gets the pass in this movie is the guy who looks human.

    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.
