Kim Suni, an elderly woman in her sixties living in the US, receives a phone call about the sale of her old family home back in South Korea. Returning to her homeland, she’s met by granddaughter Eun-joo, and they drive to the house in the country and stay the night. Suni recalls how 47 years ago when she was a teenage girl in 1965, she moved from Seoul along with her widowed mother and sister Sun-ja to a remote valley to undergo a period of convalescence after suffering problems with her lungs. The Kims lived in genteel poverty at the mercy of their arrogant and foppish landlord, Ji-tae, son of the business partner of Suni’s late father. Because of her delicate health, the beautiful yet introverted Suni lives an isolated life in the country home, without any friends her age.
One night, Suni glimpses a shadow in the outhouse; the next day, she discovers a feral boy of about 19 crouching in their yard. The boy’s body temperature is 46 degrees Celsius, his blood type unidentifiable, and he can neither read nor speak. Even though he behaves like a wild beast, Suni’s kindhearted mother adopts him and names him Chul-soo, assuming he’s one of more than 60,000 children orphaned in the Korean War.
At first Suni considers him a nuisance, but eventually has fun taming him according to a dog-training manual. She teaches him how to wait patiently before a meal, how to wear clothes, how to speak, how to write and other human behavior so that he could one day live like a normal man. Chul-soo demonstrates unswerving loyalty and superhuman brawn, thus inspiring the envy of Ji-tae, who lusts after Suni.
As Suni attempts to “civilize” the beast, the two eventually become very close. Suni opens her heart to Chul-soo, and he in turn falls in love with her, the only person to ever show him affection. But their relationship is fraught with difficulties, as Ji-tae begins to cause trouble. Feeling threatened, Chul-soo lets loose his bestial instincts, and in their fear the town villagers turn on him. In order to save the life of the boy who risked his to be by her side, Suni leaves him with a promise: “Wait for me. I’ll come back for you.”
NOTE : This is a no Twilight movie guys. Oh please!
A 2012 movie I have been anticipating since I first heard about finally became available with English subtitles – and it did not let me down. I am talking about the Korean movie A Werewolf Boy (늑대소년 ), which is not an action fantasy as one may be lead to believe, nor is it a horror movie, but rather a melodramatic romance centering around a feral boy and a girl without hopes.
First of all I found the acting to be extraordinary, Joong Ki blows you away with his acting of a wolf boy. He really nailed it! He does it so well that he makes it hard for you to recognize him. He does not really have any lines maybe just a 3-5 sentences as i remember, so he must have put it all in his acting and body language. His eyes speaks louder than I thought.
Park Bo Young as well, great acting. Her chemistry with Cheol Soo is somehow so deep. I can really feel why Suni gradually falls into Cheol Soo and vice versa. She is pretty too with her braided hair. Moreover, sunlight is everywhere in this movie. She is even brighter with the sunlight and the gold prairie. Her emotion also comes out sincerely.
This was probably the most heartbreaking ending, amazing movie ever. To point out that the character of him has few words to say and yet he really makes me like this. I cried a river, just like Han river and yes i’m still wiping my tears away whenever i remember the ending and when joongki said ‘kajima’ ‘don’t go’. I feel like crying again. OMG!
The ending was heartbreaking but if you watch the movie it is understandable (to me). I cried a lot and my my office mates saw me and said im crazy. Okay, I admit.

What made this movie so believable were the two main actors. Song Joong-gi solidified himself as an actor in this movie not through his pretty boy looks but the acting in his movements and eye expression. He made his character believable; the change in Cheol-su’s behavior was so subtle and smooth but it was noticeable. Park Bo-young’s misty eyes, young face, and small frame helped her character.
It’s a strength that Song Joong-ki is able to portray these emotional beats without uttering a word—Chul-soo can understand Korean, but he can’t seem to speak any of it.
He saved them. His strength is amaaazziiiinnnng. lol
This part is hilarious!!
Suni : Go away you fool! If you come with me, they’ll kill you.
Chul-soo : kajima..
HE WANTED TO BE WITH HER FOREVER
*This part, when he speak those words my tears kept flowing*
Waiting for someone, somewhere may be the hardest thing ever.
Back then, she told him to wait for her. After years passed by..
I really wanted you guys to go and see this movie.
*I’ve watched this film as soon as it is released online. Why not rush, its Song Joong Ki. LOL*
Its worth it.
Though words aren’t spoken, their actions really speaks louder.
