Storyline

The disconnections of urban life. Yun-ju is diffident, almost without affect; his wife is pregnant, and he's wonders if he should bribe the dean to secure a professorship. He's also bothered by a yapping dog that disturbs him in the large block of flats where he lives. Hyeon-nam is equally disengaged; she's a bookkeeper at same block of flats, animated only when she learns of a lost dog. Over the course of a few weeks, three dogs in the building go missing - Yun-ju and Hyeon-nam have a connection to each. So might a janitor. Is it a man-eat-dog world? Is there any cure for this ennui? Can anyone connect? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I'm going to the dogs.
3 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Writer and director Joon-ho Bong (The Host, Mother) went for black humor in his directorial debut.

Who among us, even those who own dogs, have not been upset at a yapping dog? Well, Yun-ju (Sung-jae Lee) is stressed over his job and his pregnant wife, and just can't stand a yapping neighbor.

This really get hilarious as Yun-ju is killing dogs, the maintenance man is eating them, and guess what his wife brings home? Meanwhile, Hyeon-nam (Doona Bae - Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, The Host) is about to lose her job because she spends so much time helping others.

The missing dogs connect Yun-Ju and Hyeon-nam. Along the way, both get what they want, or do they?
