story timeline
Upon watching the first few minutes I assumed that I would be bored 'til the end because it wasn't catchy at all. I expected that it would have a tragic ending based on watching the first few minutes.

Then BOOM... flashbacks entered... "here comes the thunder", taaadddaaa,,, it was a horror movie, I swear!,, ggggrrrrr... so creepy
I thought that this drama would freak me out by the creepiness. read more But as the story progressed I could not hide the laughter on my face. I have been laughing the entire time. The lite comedy was irresistible.

And lastly, the ending! Upon arriving at the end of the story most people cried (so make sure reserve some tissues with u). I was satisfied with the ending and I was satisfied with the characters' decisions though there still a part of me who says "the ending doesn't deserve to be like that. oohhh, just so sad,!"

Main Characters: boy & girl
-Aggressive to being protective with strong stamina.His character matured along the way especially at the end of the story so watch out.
-Physically weak, quiet but straightforward. She matured a little bit.

*It seemed to me that the two characters only have a pet-master relationship. Although there were times that I could see the deep connection between them which was caressing each other. I fell in love with the cuteness of their innocent actions toward each other.

Chance of laughter: 50%
Chance of crying: 40%
Mixed emotions: 10%
=100% recommended for everyone.

Visual effect: finely done & very neat. Their was a scene which needed more editing but it did not ruin my whole watching experience.
Sound effect and Music: If I wasn't mistaken, only one song was played throughout the movie that contained a very sad soothing romantic effect. The sound effect was executed well that played a big role for the story (startled me a lot), for the characters and also made the theater intensified a lot. So if you want to experience more realistic sound effect I suggest you have to turn on to maximum volume when watching this later on.

This movie is definitely one of my fave. I gave the story a 9 because I was really hoping for a happy ending. Its not that its a bad ending and I'm not a sucker for happy ending, but I just want this one, as an exception, to have a kinda "happily ever after ending". Nevertheless, the story is something different. Its not like any other story. Acting is superb for Song read more Joong Ki, as always. He is already great in Innocent Man, he is epic and phenomenal on this. With just a few lines and the rest is just pure acting. Its a standing "O". If you are a kdrama fan, you cannot miss this movie.

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.

    oh,i just have finished watching it and it made quite an impression on me. Firstly,i didn't expect this kind of a story. In one moment i was super happy because of them and the way how their relationship grew but the ending was so heartbreaking.Firstly,I thought maybe she was just dreaming, but when everything was finished i was in shock, literally and i coudn't stop myself from crying.
    I wish that just the end was different.

    I don't regret watching this but at the same time I don't think I would have missed out much if I didn't get round to it. I had to plan to watch this when I first joined MDL but I kept pushing it back and mostly forgot about it and now 2 years, 3 months later I finally watched it and.....it was okay, good in some parts but the story lacked in the middle and I was fast losing interest. It picked up towards the end where I became teary and it was the only time I felt emotionally connected with the movie. Amazing? nope it wasn't but it was quite good and SJK is just so cute :)

    I feel sad in the best sort of way after this movie... kind of like crying and smiling at the same time. Very bittersweet and beautiful. Also, I would like my own Joongki puppy, kthx.

    i know i'm very late, but i just watched this movie yesterday.. well, what could i say, i didn't put a high expectation for this movie before, i just think this will be a typical cheesy korean movie.
    the story is very touching and emotional, the main casts put a great act together, i really regret i didn't watch it sooner. very recommended!

    This was such a great film. I was expecting something cheesy, but it turned out to be one of the most moving films I've ever watched. I have been crying for almost an hour now, and... I can't. Sorry.

    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!
