Seven days of adventure in an apartment building.
A quiet middle-class apartment is the scene. Yoon Ju is a college lecturer with plenty of time on his hands. He gets annoyed at the sound of barking and tries to find out where it's coming from. By coincidence, he discovers a dog in front of his neighbor's door. He feels instinctively that it was the culprit and kidnaps the dog to lock it in the basement. On another front, Hyun Nam, a secretary in the apartment superintendent's office, is bored to tears with her uneventful life. The same day, she is passing the time with a crossword puzzle when a little girl comes in with a notice for a lost dog. Hyun Nam, suddenly animated, starts putting up notices all over the neighborhood without being asked. However, more and more dogs start disappearing. Then one day, Hyun Nam gets a pair of binoculars from her friend at a local store. She goes up on the apartment roof and withnesses a man killing a dog on the rooftop across from her.

umm , this movie is different
it has a very unique story
it's not about love of dogs or hating them but it's about dogs as other creatures , you can feel it mixing stories of people life and dogs contributing into it
it's about desparate people and how can they turn into saviors or depressors
so I like the main plot
I like the main female character , she's cute in her own way
it's just getting quite slow and poring at some points and gives the feeling that it could have done better than this ,that's why I give it a 6.
but it's watchable after all.
so if you have free time and high spirited and need a slow movie with unique thoughts .. this is for you.

The film is nice but "slips into the banana caste".
"Barking Dogs Never Bite" may be considered a rarity, a Korean indie film. I do not like indie but I make exceptions!
It's bright to some degree. Slow but impeccably heavy and broadly blended with various levels of comedy, acting, and a cemented atmosphere, robotic acting and static narrative.
In other words a predictable film that can be annoying. Pet lovers will be shocked and perhaps disgusted, even though I find it cumulative not to show a dog being quartered ...
"Barking Dogs Never Bite" can check their sensitivity through scenes of inhuman atrocity against animals, ranging from throwing buildings to quartering and cooking.
The cinematography is very realistic, in turn is very descriptive, there are no scenes too strong to collide, on the contrary subtle would say more. The film is an intense look at life in modern barren and complex times of sterile apartments. Where satisfaction is in doing evil.
