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!

Before watching this movie I heard a lot of people saying that it was comparable to Twilight. There is a notable wolf/werewolf trend peaking right now in music, movies, shows, etc. But this movie has nothing to do with Twilight...Its nothing like Twilight.

The story has good pacing. One thing I can't stand in movies and dramas is that it will be so drawn out and so melodramatic that I just want read more to hit fast forward. This movie wasn't drawn out and there wasn't any filler. Great attention was paid to constructing each scene. I feel like if you diced up this movie, you could enjoy each scene independently of the whole movie.

All of the cast and acting was well done. However I will admit I was a little disappointed with the "villain" character Ji Tae. He was a little too "stereotypical, cranky rich boy who goes on a psycho rage" for me. But to be fair its hard to find good villains in movies nowadays. But the rest of the cast did a great job. Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Yong are a sweet, heart-wrenching combination! There are many scenes where their chemistry is beautiful. Not going to lie, I cried (and laughed) a lot.

Before watching the movie I was worried about Song Joong Ki's role existing solely to cater to fangirls (such as myself). I was thinking, "Oh no, he's going to play the role of the cute little puppy and he's going to have to learn how to be a human." It had potential fanservice written all over it. But he made the role both cute and legitimate. Its a good watch, I've watched it twice already....and I'll probably watch it a lot more.

'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.

    Really good movie. The alternate ending definitely makes more sense.

    I honestly believe that you shouldn't give 10 in rating because nothing is perfect.. but literally...this movie surpassed all my expectations. So perfect in all it details. I had to give 10 I am sure they worked so hard to produce it. I just hope I can see another Korean movie as good as this.

Ill give this movie 12/10 because it was spontaneously to see it and i wasnt dissapointed at all! Yoong Ki is fabulous in this role and also Bo Yong is a great actress!

    It is the best ever. He still waited for her and even told her that she was still beautiful even if she was old. Why couldn't I have a romance like that
