Schoolteacher Han Hana is afflicted with a certain family curse that has ruined every single one of her past relationships. The curse in question: whenever she kisses someone, she will turn into a dog every night. The only way to break free from the curse is to kiss the same person again as a dog.

To avoid this, Hana has kept her lips chaste her entire life. However, one drunken encounter with her coworker Jin Seon, who seems to hate her, turns her entire life upside down. Hana kisses him in her intoxicated confusion, causing her curse to surface. For Hana, who is a small and cute white dog, breaking the curse should be one simple kiss... but Seon is terrified of dogs?!

So while my good will was quite high for this story in it's formative stage, I did find myself depleted by the end. I wanted to like it more than I actually did. The romance didn't pop enough when it got off the ground. When it was inevitably threatened in a rather half-hearted way, the ...

Preliminary (13/88 eps)
A clichéd romance story with superficial writing that relies on all the classic tropes to make up the rest of the plot besides the "turning into a dog" unique plot device. Characters are superficial and often don't seem to have a definite personality. The writing is like the author dragged and dropped cliché tropes and template plot pieces to make up their story. The only redeeming quality is the art which is decent but otherwise I found it to be boring at best and cringey / frustrating at worst.

Yet another example of 'this could be a 10 chapter manga if they just sat and talked ...
