Storyline

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.

Professor Kang Tae-shik: How high?
Dr. Kang's Assistant: 115.8 ºF. It's not a fever. He is naturally hot. And he has a bone density and muscle power that matches an elephant.

Nice romantic fantasy
3 December 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The title is misleading because he isn't exactly a werewolf and it isn't a horror movie. It is called Wolf Boy in Korea, which is a much better name. The main part of the movie is about socializing a feral child and the sweet relationship that develops between him and his adopted family, especially the older daughter. Although there are elements of fantasy toward the end of the story, enjoyment of the movie doesn't depend on that.

The cinematography is lovely and the acting is excellent, except for the villain being a little over the top. Although the movie seems to be geared toward teens and young adults, it is also entertaining for mature audiences who like a classic kind of emotional ride.
