Film description:

“A mother moves with her older daughter (Park Bo-Young) and younger daughter (Kim Hyang-Gi) to a large home in the country side. The older daughter suffers from a lung ailment and her doctor advised the family to move out into the country side. The home is provided by Ji-Tae (Yoo Yeon-Seok), the son of a business partner who worked with their deceased father.

While the family gets acclimated to their new surroundings, the older daughter makes a remarkable discovery. Within a locked room in the barn lives a wild boy (Song Joong-Ki). The family takes him in believing he is just an orphan with little social skills. The boy with little social skills begins to take an interest in the oldest daughter. Meanwhile, Ji-Tae has his own plans in marrying the oldest daughter. What’s the secret behind the wild boy?”

Check out the trailer:

It looks like one of those super emotional and depressing romance films. Not sure if it’s the movie for me. What about you? If this film ever makes it to your country, will you give it a watch?

  1. Heh. Film description:

    “What’s the secret behind the wild boy?”

    Film title:

    “A Werewolf Boy”

    ‘Nuff said.

    In all seriousness, definitely something I would watch. Korean dramas hardly ever disappoint. =)

  2. I probably wouldn’t see it, there is no WEREWOLF in it.

    You can’t just slap the word ‘werewolf’ on it without there being an actual werewolf appearance.

    And werewolf + cheesy romance music usually = a bad movie anyways.

  3. Are you sure this is a werewolf movie? I don’t consider Tarzan raised in the wild jungle-boy characters to be werewolves.

    1. This isn’t a werewolf a movie. It’s a movie about a wild boy with inhuman strength; he never turns into a wolf or a wolf-like creture.
