As someone who loves the Kimi wa Petto manga and J-drama, I thought this film adaptation was, hmm, fair to middling. Imo, It changed some aspects of the characters and the plot a bit too much which in turn fundamentally changed the nature of Sumire (not her name in the Korean version obviously) & Momo's developing relationship. Maybe the story just can't be told the way it should be in the brief timespan of a movie. I won't spoil the specifics for the small handful of other people on this forum who might be interested (besides, reviews have already made their way across the internet) but let's just say I probably would've adored it if I hadn't already known the story from the manga.

Having said all that, if it gets a R1 DVD release it's still a must-buy for me (if for no other reason than Jang Geun Suk singing "Mandy").

P.S. Also excited about Kim Ha-Neul starring in a K-drama version of Zettai Kareshi. Here's hoping it's better than the J-drama!
