"Barking Dogs Never Bite" is funny because it balances absurdist humor (the cheering crowd in yellow hoodies) with banal reality (the girl's one moment of triumph is edited out of the evening news). There's also an emotional core that makes you wince every time a dog is harmed even though this happens a lot through the course of the movie. There's a sort of delicate touch that a lot of auteur directors are missing in their early films; all of the characters are sympathetic rather than mere satirized types - although he gets some mileage out of this too.

I like the movie a lot, started watching it despite its no ENG sub. Wish I could understand korean. Thanks for the upload anyway, a great movie.
