Does the title sound a little offensive to you?
It it does, then you interpreted it correctly.
Yes, this is a person calling another person a pet.
More specifically, a woman is calling a man her pet.
Now tell me, men, if you're offended or not.
No offense though! I am not calling anyone my pet. This is only the title of a movie.
The movie You're My Pet has created an issue by offending some men.
Some men sued this movie as an insult, and wished it to be banned.
Well, this turned into a big mess, and it ended up going to a court. Yikes....
As it is widely known, this was a popular japanese comic made into a movie. Not only comic but also the drama version of this story was well sold in Korea.
The main roles are played by Keun Suk Jang and Ha Neul Kim. However, a group of men ,offended by the male portrayal in the movie, requested the movie to be banned. Just a couple days before it was supposed to be released, it was legally forbidden to be released.
This is why a man being a woman's pet is such a big deal in Korea.
Both my parents are Korean, and I was born in Korea, but since I lived 10 years of my life in Japan, India, and the U.S., I don't understand what's going on, either.
