Kimi wa Petto is a drama based on the original manga written by the Mangaka Yayoi Okawa. An unique story who takes place in the world of a Business woman's life.

Will their Master and Pet relationship come in the way of the romance happening?.. Will the secret about Ji Eun's pet being a human, be revealed?
I really liked this movie.. I actually really didn't have that much expectations to this story atall.. I saw the actual drama a couple of months ago, And I liked it.. But it didn't make my top 5 dramalist.. This movie made my favorite list unexpectedly.
The Rewatch value is plenty high, I actually feel like rewatching it again right now, Despite of just having completed it. The musically score and soundtrack were really good with performances from Keun-Suk himself inserted into the story.
This Movie is a must watch for sure, Especially recommended for rom-com lovers, And fans of the Kimi wa Petto drama..
Watched the JDrama prior to this. I have to say this wasn't as good. Although I haven't read the manga, but just being compared to the JDrama it wasn't as good. As much as I love Jang Geun Suk and as much of a good actor, I think the story in the JDrama was better. From the JDrama I knew that the lead girl was suppose to be very curt and mean, but the movie portrayed her as a ditzy (ish) woman who was very indecisive. I guess it is harder to portray her character in a movie compared to a drama, but it would have been nice to make her character a little more defined. Momo is suppose to be like a kid, shorter and more kid like. The dancing aspect was very poor I feel, I know that Jang Geun Suk isn't a dancer by profession, but they could have made his character a more dance-y. And I guess the styles of Dance at the time when the JDrama was made and the KMovie are different, like what style is popular at the time, but even in Kpop there are a lot of good dancers and they could of shown it better then some corny musical. I think Woori was a nice touch, they didn't really go in to much detail of their relationship but I think that it was okay since it was a movie.
Overall, I feel like if you haven't seen the JDrama you would probably like it. I just thought it would be more like the Jdrama, but the fact that it wasn't exactly like it was a nice change, because then it would be boring I guess.
