Whenever they kiss a person for the first time they will turn into a dog and if that person kisses them when they are dog than only the curse can be lifted.

Han Hae-na had a long time crush on Lee Bo-gyeom so she decided to tell him about her feelings but mistakenly kissed Jin Seo-won instead of him. In one minute she turned into a dog now she will become a dog daily from midnight till 6 in the morning. And to lift the curse Jin Seo-won has to kiss her in dog form but he is very afraid of dogs.
