YesAsia Editorial Description

Only Kwak Kyung Taek, the mastermind behind 2007's hit A Love and all-time classic Friends (2001), had the vision to see Jung Woo Sung (Daisy, A Moment To Remember), one of Korea's best-looking sex symbols, as the titular role in Mutt Boy. No longer just a pretty face, Jung comes out with a grungy hairdo and ragged jogging suit, mumbling an almost incomprehensible dialect and displaying peculiar body language that resembles that of - a mutt dog! Scratching his head and sniffing out the air here and there, Jung nails his role in Mutt Boy. Shot in the small town of Milyang, now made famous by Secret Sunshine, Mutt Boy is a coming-of-age drama that takes the audience on a rollercoaster ride full of growing pains and precious lessons that can never be taught through textbook. Always the immaculate chameleon, veteran actor Kim Gap Su (A Tale of Two Sisters) adds much weight to the scenes with his heart-wrenching performance as the Mutt Boy's tough but forgiving father.

There's something different about Chul Min (Jung Woo Sung), or rather "Mutt Boy" as everyone calls him. Not that he is a complete dimwit, but Chul Min is certainly missing a screw or two in his head. Losing his mother at an early age, he lives with his father (Kim Gap Su), the town's police chief. Life is stress-free for Chul Min except for the occasional argument with his father on trivial matters like who gets the last fried egg. One day, his father brings home a troubled orphan girl named Jung Ae (Uhm Ji Won, Traces of Love) whom Chul Min befriends. Seeing his son in constant companion with a bunch of losers, his father urges Chul Min to do something with his life. And one day, Chul Min gets the chance to act on something that will eventually transform his whole life.

Professional Review of "Mutt Boy Deluxe Edition (Japan Version)"

September 23, 2004

This professional review refers to Mutt Boy (VCD) (Korea Version)
Best known for his blockbuster Friend in 2001, director Kwak Kyung-taek has been maintaining a stable output of one movie per year. In 2002, he finished the heart-throbbing tragedy Champion, and this year in 2003, he came up with a light-hearted drama Mutt Boy.

Unlike the dark and poetic Friend and Champion, there is no intrigue or surprising conspiracy at all, nor is the protagonist a mighty superhero. On the contrary, the lead male is Chul-min (Jung Woo-sung), a stupid young man who is regarded as the "mutt boy" by his father (Kim Kap-soo) and his friends. Chul-min is a bum and he hangs out with a group of losers that are good at nothing but making trouble. One day, his father brings home an orphan girl Jung-ae (Uhm Ji-won), who will live with them. As Chul-min and Jung-ae stay together, they begin to form some kind of relationship. On the other hand, Chul-min's friend is beaten up by some gangsters, which inevitably prompts him to seek revenge... For you devoted Korean cinema fans, you may notice that the premise of this story, featuring a slacker who sucks in every aspect except fighting, does resemble Manner Zero a bit, but luckily, the approach of the filmmaker is quite different.

It is known that Kwak Kyung-taek's movies do not rely on provocative story-line to intensify the drama, it is rather the sophisticated depiction of the characters that builds up the tension and impresses the audience. In this film, again, with a little hackneyed plot that lacks climactic moments, what absorbs and moves the viewers emotionally is the delineation of the passionate interpersonal relationships, that is, the father and son attachment between Chul-min and his father and the friendship among Chul-min and his friends. At first glance, Chul-min and his father do not seem to live happily together. The death of Chul-min's mother is even indirectly related to Chul-min. However, Kwak employs a comical way to treat this supposedly antagonistic relationship, successfully turning it into a tender comedy that is filled with a caring heart. The same thing also happens to Chul-min and his friends. These loafers are impoverished and cast out of the society, but their attitudes are always optimistic. Compared to the miserable and desperate encounters of the characters in Friend and Champion, what we see in this film is the total opposite - hope.

Without a doubt, super star Jung Woo-sung is rather old to play the role of Chul-min. But luckily, his treatment of the role is so well that you can hardly spot any incongruity in this character. Employing a blatant and waggish style of acting, Jung brings life to his character, convincing the viewers that Chul-min is a mentally retarded yet benevolent kid. Kim Kap-soo as Chul-min's father and Uhm Ji-won as his girlfriend are also well portrayed. Although they do not appear for much time in the film, as it is almost Jung's one man show, their parts are just perfectly imposed. As a side note, Uhm Ji-won does resemble former SES member Eugene Kim a bit.

If you are looking for an intense action adventure movie or a big budget special effects extravaganza, Mutt Boy is probably not your choice. On the other hand, fans of quality cinema should definitely not miss this passionate light-hearted drama with rich and lovable characters that carry complex and genuine emotions.

Stray Doggy grows up Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
"Mutt Boy" sneaks up on you, draws you in, and, by the end of the film, has you cheering for its very peculiar hero. The mutt boy of the title, called Stray Doggy in the film, is played by Jung Woo Sung. Throughout most of the movie, I found Mr. Jung's performance to be bizarre. He seems to be hiding behind his shaggy hair, with his head down and looking side to side. Late in the movie I figured out that Jung is acting out his name; he is behaving like a stray dog ... which makes sense since his character's main companion throughout his lonely childhood was an abandoned dog.

While the film's meandering narrative takes many detours, it is always interesting and ultimately proves to be an affecting and exciting coming of age story. Mr. Jung's effective performance is matched by nuanced acting by the young woman who becomes his shy love interest and by the man who plays his father (who memorably played the father of Son Ye Jin in "Alone in Love").

It took a while to warm up to the very strange Stray Doggy, but once I did I was enthralled and you will be, too. Very highly recommended.

Cute movie Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Jung Woo-sung is adorable. He plays, as a friend of mine phrased it, one of the coolest loosers you'll ever want to meet. Stray Doggy (Jung Woo-sung)cruises through life, not yet sure of what he wants to do. He dropped out of school after a fight with some bullies who stole his dog, whom he had been very close to. Later, his father brings home a young woman, who had been caught trying to steal a purse, to be their maid. Although the love story between this young woman and Stray Doggy is understated, it is very cute nonetheless. The bully that was responsible for stealing his dog turns up later and Stray Doggy finally gets a chance for revenge. What happens? You'll just have to watch it to find out.

Jung Woo Sung's Acting Ability Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Mutt Boy

This movie marks a departure for actor Jung Woo Sung and demonstrates his versatility as an actor. Commonly known for his roles as slightly larger-than-life characters, we see him take it down a knotch to act in a humble role, below his established stature.

The result was an amazing performance showing an absence of ego which dog some many Korean stars, as he plays the role of village idiot in a touchingly woven story which takes place which takes place in back yard Korea.

There is a refreshing reality and honesty in this movie which adds authentity to the story. It is stripped of special effects and fireworks, leaving the actor and cast to weave their rich story.

Throughout, Jung remains in character. There is something of a method actor in him. At the moment of shooting any scene, one imagines that he actually runs through the gambit of emotions rather than to pretend.

A must see. Be on the look out for this actor. He is uncommonly talented.

strange beginning, strong ending Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
I saw this movie on a lazy afternoon. First I thought it's really strange and not too bright-similiar to its star Jung Woo Sung, who plays the not too bright son of a local criminal inspector. Have you seen him in Musa?Here, he is talking in the heavy dialect of the Pusan area (which became somewhat popular since the Korean blockbuster "Chingoo - Friend") and his only friend seems to be a shiddy dog (that's actually the literal korean title). But as the story continues, there's an amazing amount of fun and even romance-sort of. Enjoyable!
