An offer to buy her property brings elderly Kim Sun-yi back to the country cottage she briefly lived in during eventful times in her youth. With her granddaughter by her side, Sun-yi recalls meeting Cheol-su, not only a feral orphan from Korean war days but a mute boy genetically spliced with wolf DNA by a rogue scientist, now deceased. She effectively tames the unsocialized lad through dog obedience training, and he soon becomes more than a loyal companion, protecting her from the rude advances of her late father's business partner's ne'er-do-well, spoiled, self-centered son, Ji-tae, who fully expects Sun-yi to marry him someday. He would claim her as his own sooner than that if not for Cheol-su, who transforms into an unbeatable werewolf anytime someone threatens a member of his pack, leading Ji-tae to work towards a permanent solution to this problem.

Funny - moving - breath-taking!
18 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

The movie is about a family moving to the countryside because of the eldest daughter's lung ailment. There they meet a wild boy living all by himself in the barn and decide to take care of him. As he slowly becomes part of the family the oldest daughter is trying to introduce him into society.

As I've seen many Korean Movies so far I can say for sure this is the best for now. Most of the Korean Movies have been too boring but this one was captivating the whole time. The instrumentals are excellent: touching, suitable and not too intrusive. The thespian abilities are convincing. I have to hype most of all Song Joong Ki's (the wolf boy's) ability to mime the confused, seemingly mentally retarded and overly protective little Kid within an adult man's body. Most of the Dialogues are meaningful and relevant but the best conversation is the silent one between the main characters. You can automatically understand all that they are feeling towards each other in the process. All in all this Movie was one of the few that was able to make me feel in the midst of everything. I was crying, laughing and holding my breath throughout.
