What if you were cursed to become a dog every time you kissed the one you were in love with due to no fault of your own? Instead, you are left paying for the sins committed by your stupid ancestors?
Even though you have successfully protected yourself from turning into a dog, one accidental kiss and everything went poof, and that too with someone who is afraid of dogs.
Directed by Kim Dae-woong, the upcoming South Korean drama titled “A Good Day To Be A Dog” is based on a similar concept focusing on a high-school teacher cursed to become a dog every time she kisses someone and the chaos that follows after she kisses a coworker who is scared shitless of dogs.
Well, I know what most of you might be thinking is how someone is afraid of dogs, but well, people like Jin Seo-woo exist in real life.
The upcoming drama focuses on a sweet and humourous journey of love, escaping the shackles of family curse, and self-discovery with a twist of paranormal activities thanks to Hae-na’s attempt to end the curse.
The only way for Hae-na to turn back to her human self is to get a second kiss from the same guy she kissed, but seeing the fear Jin Seo-woo has regarding dogs, this task seems impossible to complete.
The series explores the complexity of destiny, love, and the extent one is prepared to defy convention. The upcoming K-Drama will offer viewers a gateway to a world where first kisses have implications beyond the ordinary with Hae-na and Jin Seo-won’s journey.
Written by Baek In-ah, the series focuses on Hae-na, a high school teacher teaching students the Korean language, hiding a family secret, and Jin Seo-won, her colleague who is scared of dogs to the point of no return.
Every time Hae-na dates someone, she instructs them to avoid kissing her, which in turn sends her lover running and the reason behind Hae-na avoiding kissing someone is revealed to be a curse passed on from generations in her family due to a mistake committed by her ancestors, which involves the members of her family turning into dogs for six hours before regaining their human form after kissing someone.
This comical process continues until they are successful in kissing the same person for a second time, and the same goes for Hae-na, so she avoids kissing someone she is interested in, but one accidental kiss changes everything.
It will be interesting to follow along and see if she can get her second kiss, as the person she kissed is scared of dogs. The series lead cast stars Cha Eun Woo playing Jin Seo-won’s role, the series protagonist and Hae-na’s colleague, and Park Gyu Young playing the role of Han Hae-na, the cursed protagonist of the series in the lead.
