Heart is... (Hangul: 마음이; RR: Maeumi), also known as Hearty Paws, is a 2006 South Korean drama film directed by Park Eun-hyung and Oh Dal-kyun.


Two siblings, an 11-year-old boy named Chan-yi (Yoo Seung-ho) and his little sister So-yi (Kim Hyang-gi), have been abandoned by their mother, and are left to survive on their own. For his sister's 6th birthday, Chan-yi decides to give her a dog. He sneaks into a house of an old couple and steals a newly-born puppy, which she's been longing to have. Even though they are poor, they were happy. But everything changed after a tragic accident; So-yi died. Chan-yi blames this on his dog and finds his way to his mother, not realizing that the dog was the only true family that would never leave him.
