The highly anticipated K-Drama adaptation of the popular romance fantasy webtoon “A Good Day To Be A Dog” has officially been confirmed! Originally by Lee Hey, the webtoon is one among several others that are slated for production and airing in 2022.
For those who might not know, “A Good Day To Be A Dog” tells the story of Han HaNa (Han HaeNa in the Korean version), a spirited young woman who apparently has it all. She is gorgeous, likable, smart, and kind. However, none of her romantic relationships ever last because of a special non-negotiable condition she imposes on her partners – they can never kiss HaNa. This is because HaNa is under a family curse that will turn her into a dog every day at midnight if she kisses someone. The only way to lift the curse is to get a second kiss from the same person, albeit as a dog this time around.
Despite her failed attempts at love, HaNa has a secret crush on her colleague, Lee BoGum, who seems to be the perfect man for her. However, fate has other plans. One day, while drinking with her co-workers, HaNa gets wasted and tries to pull BoGum in for a kiss. However, the man she actually ends up kissing is Jin SeOn (Jin SeoWon in the Korean version).
Jin SeOn is extremely handsome, good-natured, and sincere. He’s the very definition of a gentleman! However, he has a cold and indifferent disposition towards HaNa in particular. HaNa once heard that he was uncomfortable around her and has been trying to avoid him since. However, circumstances keep pushing them together.
When HaNa turns into a dog after kissing Jin SeOn, she vows to undo the curse by getting a second kiss. However, this becomes increasingly difficult in light of SeOn’s cynophobia, stemming from trauma related to dogs that he can’t quite put his finger on.
Recently, it was reported that ASTRO’s Cha EunWoo has been cast in the leading role of Jin SeOn (or, Jin SeoWon, as it appears in the Korean version of the webtoon). At the time of writing, no actress has been cast in the role of the female lead. Considering the character sketch of HaNa, we picked 10 Korean actresses/K-Pop idols who would be perfect in the role of HaNa: Shin DoHyun, Girl’s Day’s HyeRi, Kim HyeYoon, Red Velvet’s Wendy, Kim SeJeong, Chae SooBin, Jo YuRi, Shin YeEun, Roh JeongEui, and Lee SungKyoung.
