YesAsia Editorial Description

One of the most talked about Korean movies of 2012, the blockbuster fantasy romance A Werewolf Boy revolves around a feral boy of mysterious origin and the girl who forever changes his world. The genre-bending pure love story starring popular young actors Song Joong Ki (Penny Pinchers) and Park Bo Young (Scandal Makers) set a new box office record in Korea for melodramas. Directed by Jo Sung Hee (End of Animal), the heartrending film opens in the present day, and then takes the audience back half a century to the heroine's memories of her fateful encounter with Song Joong Ki's puppy-eyed Werewolf Boy.

In 1965, sickly but headstrong teenage girl Suni (Park Bo Young) moves to a countryside manor with her mother (Jang Young Nam, Hello Ghost) and little sister (Kim Hyang Gi, The Grand Heist). The manor's former occupant was a reclusive scientist who raised wolves. Suni and her family soon discover a wild boy (Song Joong Ki) on their grounds. It's unclear who he is or where he came from, but he doesn't speak and behaves like a wolf. With the local authorities being of no help, the family has no choice but to take him in temporarily, and they even give him a name: Chul Soo. Suni gradually tames Chul Soo with the help of a dog training manual, the two forming a close bond as time passes. Their dangerously arrogant landlord Ji Tae (Yoo Yeon Seok, Re-encounter), however, has his eyes on Suni and he sets out to get rid of Chul Soo by exposing his beastly nature.

Professional Review of "A Werewolf Boy (2012) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)"

April 29, 2013

This professional review refers to A Werewolf Boy (DVD) (3-Disc) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Romantic fantasy A Werewolf Boy emerged as one of the biggest Korean hits of 2012, not to mention the country's biggest grossing melodrama to date. Written and directed by Jo Sung Hee, his second feature after the much-praised art house indie End of Animal, the film follows the odd relationship between a young girl and a strange feral boy in a twist on the ever popular 'pure love' theme. Taking on the all-important lead roles are up and coming stars actor Song Joong Ki (Penny Pinchers) and actress Park Bo Young (Speedy Scandal), with support from (Jang Young Nam, Hello Ghost), Kim Hyang Gi (The Grand Heist) and Yoo Yeon Seok (Re-encounter).

The film kicks off in the present day in the US, with an elderly Korean woman called Suni receiving a call about the sale of her old family home back in Korea. Returning to the rural house in the countryside, the memories come flooding back from 1965, when she was a rebellious teenage girl (now played by Park Bo Young), who moved there with her widowed mother (Jang Young Nam) and younger sister (Kim Hyang Gi) to try and help her regain her health. One day she comes across a wild boy (Song Joong Ki) lurking around the property, who can't speak, read or write, and who acts more like an animal than a human being. With it being assumed that he is a war orphan, the family decide to look after him in until a permanent solution can be found, and he gradually forms a bond with Suni, who takes it on herself to train him, giving him the name Chul Soo. This doesn't go down well with their sleazy landlord Ji Tae (Yoo Yeon Seok), who has designs on Suni himself, and the unpleasant man does his best to bring out the worst in Chul Soo.

Though many viewers will hear 'teen fantasy romance' and think Twilight, there's thankfully a lot more to A Werewolf Boy, which actually turns out to be a much more nuanced, not to mention stranger film than expected. Of course, nostalgia-tinged melodrama is still the main order of the day, with most of the running time being taken up with the burgeoning romance between Suni and Chul Soo and the inevitable angst, jealousy and innocent love that this entails. However, Jo Sung Hee proves to be a pretty good fit for the material, retaining his indie sensibilities and preventing the film from ever getting too sappy or cutesy. The two young stars also help, with solid performances that keep things respectably in check and display enough chemistry to make their paring believable. While for viewers outside the target audience the film is unlikely to be terribly moving, it does hit a lot of surprisingly strong emotional beats along the way, and its heartstring-tugging is far more palatable than might have been expected.

Mainly this is due to the film's more leftfield elements, which are hinted at early on by the fact that the house was owned by a weird scientist who appeared to be doing experiments on wolves. This actually turns out to be a fairly crucial part of the plot as the film develops, Jo working in some pretty bizarre elements that lean towards horror and science fiction, making for a kind of beauty and the beast type feel. This is accentuated by his excellent direction, making great use of shadows and colour, mixing the gloss of melodrama with an at times more gritty genre look. The whole war orphan motif also crops up a few times, and though Jo doesn't really expand upon this, or indeed the historical context in general, the metaphor is clearly there, and this adds a pleasingly subtle layer of depth.

The young stars and threat of melodrama shouldn't put open minded viewers off A Werewolf Boy, as it's really much better and more entertaining than expected, and though younger audiences will certainly get more out of it, there's still plenty here to enjoy. Jo Sung Hee proves a talented writer and craftsman of a director, and the film is well made and despite its somewhat odd collection of elements makes for a solid and satisfying package.

A girl and her song calm the beast (A) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Set in 1965 and shown as one big flashback, this love story centres on Suni an elderly woman living in the US who returns to her childhood Korean countryside manor due to the selling of the house, but then reminisces about her very unusual first love. As a young girl Suni (Bo Young Park) lived with her widowed mother (Young-nam Jang) and younger sister (Hyang-gi Kim) at this rural manor (looking similar to the Amityville horror house) a place where the clean country air assisted Suni’s lung illness. Due to her sickly condition Suni wrote nightly woes into her personal diary as aside to her ill health, the family were constantly harassed for money by a demanding and arrogant landlord (Yeon-seok Yoo), the boo-hiss bad boy of the film and the son of a business partner of Suni’s late father. Ever a stereotypical oppressive, the slick landlord is like one half of a Cinderella ‘bad’ sister (well ironically there's a scene hint when Suni and the wolf boy dress up in pantomime style), oppressive, violent and constantly demanding Suni to marry him.

But when Suni and her mother found a wild boy (Joong-ki Song) hiding outside their house, at first were afraid of him (as was the wild boy of them) but the kindly mother took the feral boy inside their home to feed him. After failing to get the authorities to take the boy into care, the family temporally took responsibility with Suni teaching the wild lad to read, write and study in a room her mother gives him. Disgruntled at the wild boys ferocious table manners Suni decides to train the boy’s wild eating habit of rapidly stuffing food down himself into some form of eating etiquette, also getting him washed and clothed. She also names him Chul Soo. Sensing Suni and her mother’s kindness Chul Soo becomes protective of the family and their local friends and with his immense strength even saves them from a falling steel girder onto his back, leaving little injury. But when Chul Soo is intrigued by Suni’s guitar playing and her song of troubled love, the unspeaking boy is eternally smitten, falling in love with Suni. But the boy gets mad, generally triggered when Suni is threatened by the bad boy landlord and transforms into a fully raging werewolf. The landlord hating that the wolf lad could steal Suni from him tries to get the wolf boy killed by local military authorities, who discover the lad could be an escaped result of a dangerous laboratory experiment, as the house once belonged to a military scientist.

A girl and her song calm the beast (B) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Although a young man occasionally turns into an angry monster beast, this Disney type family movie is more a ‘pure’ love sentiment tale between a wild boy and an unhappy but caring young girl, than werewolf horror. The human-animal bond ship seems to blend Marvel’s Hulk (anger unrestrained), the Korean human-fox shape-shifting fables and Lassie. I liked this sentimental tale though, but its only a very good decent movie not a great one. The latter part and conclusion are its better parts (I liked the otherworldly forest scenes when Suni and Chul Soo escape) and overall this sentimental tale adapts the movie days of ‘timeless innocence’ than anything. The captivity theme of the boy is a bit scary (if you were a free wolf-boy would you want a girl locking you in a room for you to learn how to write and compartmentalize?), but by the boy’s unbridled but gentle emotion for Suni, is in contrast to his beast nature that seems to suggest a triumph or victory over a highly imposed and conditioned mentality (bestiality), and that the boy’s object of innocence (Suni), evokes him towards his natural suppressed pure spirit from angst animal instincts (and amazing considering the feral boy’s a cold experiment). A song and Suni’s sweetness does the trick – a girl unknowingly calms the beast.

But this odd love story does tune itself a little towards a more natural world we block ourselves away from (starlight vs streetlight). It’s said that because man bit into an apple, humans befell into animal instincts, but maybe here metaphorically an animal boy can love a girl/woman simply, without any unnecessary and complicated emotions. Sometimes humans can be like animals and animals show ‘human’ affections. Ahh anyway it’s certainly an enjoyable love story. The main music theme is very good. Bo young I’ve watched and liked for ages and it was also nice to see her in this. Actress Young-nam Jang reminds me a bit of Karen Allen from ‘Raiders of the Lost Art’. This special edition is a very good collectable one (individually numbered) and certainly worth getting if you like these types of editions. The lid type box set is mainly taken by the thick storyboard script paperback and it’s very much a required taste. More for the serious film student I think. I also preferred the nice photo book. The three-disk digi-pack is a fold out type and the three disks are ALL regions (1 to 6). Of course I can only confirm this LE big-boxed edition for all regions.

Good movie Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I loved the movie, which is why I bought this. It comes in a nice box which is numbered, with polariods, film cut strip, a thicker photobook than the bluray photobook, and a "conti" book. I thought it was going to be a story continuation book, but really it's just a storyboard sketch book for the director/cameras to plan out how they're going to film the movie. That was a big disappointment for me and a waste of space really because who is going to read that? You can watch the movie and enjoy that more than this "book". Oh well, good product but it is a little overpriced here.

It's wonderful! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I am a fan of Song Joong Ki, and this particular movie of his really brought out another side of his acting skills! I absolutely love the packaging and the additional freebies inside.

However, when I opened the DVD the 3rd disc has an itty bitty scratch at the back. Hopefully it won't affect the quality of the movie though.

I really had no regrets in purchasing this item.
