Based on the Naver webtoon of the same name, 'A Lovely Dog Today' (author Lee Hye), 'A Lovely Dog Today' also captured the tastes of home theaters even before it was broadcast, with a cast that perfectly synchronized with the original. Here, two days before the first broadcast, important points to watch were revealed.

# A tickling romance between a woman who turns into a dog and a man who is afraid of dogs

‘A Lovely Dog Today Too’ depicts an exciting story based on the fresh and novel character setting of the main character, who is cursed to turn into a dog when he kisses. Han Hae-na (played by Park Gyu-young), who inherited a special curse from generation to generation, is cursed to turn into a dog every night after accidentally kissing Jin Seo-won (played by Cha Eun-woo), a difficult and uncomfortable fellow teacher. In order to lift Hae-na's curse, she must kiss Seo-won again while she is a 'gae-na (dog + Hae-na)'. Seowon is extremely afraid of dogs due to a childhood trauma. In the process, Hae-won and Seo-won are attracted even more because they are opposites, and are expected to color the small screens in pink with a warm narrative of them recovering from each other's wounds, unfolding an awkward but bold romance full of excitement.

Previously, director Kim Dae-woong confidently expressed, “The setting of Haena turning into a dog is truly unique, so we will be able to present a unique romantic comedy.”

# A drama that induces morale for 10 million people with pets!
'A Lovely Dog Today' features a variety of dogs that will capture the hearts of 10 million people, including Bichons, Maltese, French Bulldogs, and Retrievers. Even the combination of Cha Eun-woo, Park Gyu-young, and Lee Hyun-woo, who lead the drama, also received explosive attention even before the broadcast, calling it a 'doggy prize'. In particular, expectations are high as Pin-a, the acting dog playing the role of Hae-na's alter ego 'Gae-na', is also expected to perform.

In this way, 'My Dog Is Lovely Today' announced the birth of a drama that will surely make anyone who loves dogs have their heart pounding. Just looking at the lovely appearances of the puppies, the other main characters, will deliver pleasant healing energy to the small screen.

# A well-made story with unpredictable twists and turns surrounding the curse of the mountain god!

In the play, 'I'm Lovely Dog Today', there are many unique characters that make you unable to take your eyes off them, from the main characters to the supporting characters. In particular, the play is made up of new characters that are different from the original Naver Webtoon, such as Song Woo-taek (Jo Jin-se), a friend of Hae-na's older sister Han Yu-na (Ryu Abel), an uncle who turned into a dog (Kim Hae-joon), and a vice principal with a story (Yoo Seung-mok). Expressed more colorfully.

The identity of Lee Bo-gyeom (played by Lee Hyun-woo), which can be said to be the main point of the play, also stimulates curiosity. Bogyeom is a character with an unexpected charm who hides his expressionless expression behind a sad smile. On the outside, he is a Korean history teacher who hovers around Hae-na and Seo-won. It confuses everyone as to whether it is Cupid of love or a saboteur, and adds a twist to the narrative. What is the sad story behind how he, a mountain god, had no choice but to curse humans? His deep story immediately captures the hearts of prospective viewers.

Great interest is also focused on the activities of various attractive characters such as Choi Yul (played by Yoon Hyun-soo), Min Ji-ah (played by Kim Yi-kyung), Yuna, and Woo-taek, who will hover around Seo-won, Hae-na, and Bo-gyeom and make the drama interesting.

MBC's new Wednesday drama 'I'm Lovely Dog Again' will be aired for the first time at 9 PM on the 11th, and episodes 1 and 2 will be broadcast consecutively in the first week.
