The drama’s unique plot, adapted from a popular Korean webtoon, has generated considerable excitement due to the chemistry between the lead actors. Hae Na yearns for a romantic connection but is constantly held back by her curse.
The curse, unlike others, has an unconventional twist: after the first kiss, she metamorphoses into a dog for six hours every midnight. The only way to break the curse is to receive a second kiss from the same person before midnight as a dog. This curse has led to a series of unfortunate relationships for Hae Na, as she struggles to maintain a connection after warning her partners not to kiss her.
Her outlook on relationships has turned pessimistic due to these experiences. However, a turning point arrives when, in a drunken state, she impulsively kisses her co-worker, Jin Seo Won. This marks the beginning of their chaotic and captivating journey.
Seo Won, a dashing teacher, harbors his own fears, with a traumatic childhood event sparking his intense fear of dogs. The unexpected kiss with Hae Na introduces him to a new perspective on her, gradually leading him to fall in love with both her and her unpredictable nature.
With a refreshing twist on the romantic comedy genre and an engaging storyline rooted in the dynamics between the cursed girl and her dog-fearing suitor, “A Good Day To Be A Dog” promises to captivate audiences with its humor, romance, and character-driven narrative.
As anticipation builds for the premiere, viewers are eager to witness how Hae Na and Seo Won’s relationship will unfold, and whether their bond can overcome the challenges posed by her unique curse.
