My motif to see this movie was mainly Kang Dong-Won, who is one of the two lead actors of this film. I first saw him in the movie "Maundy Thursday" aka "Our Happy Time", and thought he did a convincing job (movie recommended!). KDW shot to stardom when he appeared in "A Romance of Their Own", and even took home an award for best new-comer. When I saw this movie, however, I must say that I was kind of disappointed.
The acting overall was flat, and the story felt rushed, not to say cliché and often times off-putting. People who are familiar with Korean dramas/movies will definitely recognize the formulas used here.
However, I still have to give kudos to the choreographer of the fight scenes used in this movie. It was quite exciting to watch, although a bit short. As to why the movie is called "Temptation of Wolves", I do not know, but the beginning credits do show us the sun setting and the cry of a wolf! The first half of the movie was upbeat and refreshing, with a touch of naiveté. The second half, however, dragged on too long, and the plot became too troublesome, so that somehow the ending made sense.
