A Werewolf Boy (2012) – MIFF Film Review


South Korea  122 mins

As a teenager, Soon-Yi (Boyeong Park) and her family move to a house in the country to help her poor lungs. There, they discover a feral boy (Joong-ki Song) who lives near the house. Unable to get any authority to take him, they clean him up, name him Chui-Soo and Soon-Yi begins to socialize him, training him like a dog. However, there are greater forces at work.

In the current trend of passion involving vampires and werewolves, A Werewolf Boy is far gentler, more innocent and real romance. There is great comedy, and Joon-ki Song depicts the mannerisms of a dog beautifully. A really awesome, fun film.
