Quotes

Soon-Yi: Gran, wanna see this?
Kim Sun-yi: What a good-looking young man.
Soon-Yi: He is, isn't he?
Kim Sun-yi: Does he come from money?
Soon-Yi: I don't think so.
Kim Sun-yi: Then just have a little fun and dump him.
Soon-Yi: But he's so good to me.
Kim Sun-yi: Be good to him. Men love getting compliments. When you grow up you see things that you didn't used to see. Knowing more might seem good, but it turns you into a coward. It only happens once in your life, and it never comes back.

A sad but satisfying movie
20 April 2013 | by (Abu Dhabi, UAE) – See all my reviews

"A Werewolf Boy" made me cry, I was practically bawling towards the end. Very simple but good story-line and believable acting. I practically avoid drama movies (as my well of tears is shallow) but the plot is so compelling it easily dragged me in front of my computer and glued me on my chair so I couldn't move until the movie ended. No complains though.

This movie showed why I am a fan of Korean movies: Simple story-line, may be over-used, but very well executed. Some may say that the movie is slow-paced but I find beauty in it because it gave way to focusing on little details (e.g. facial expression, hand movements and other body gestures) which have big impact and lasting impression on viewer's reaction.

If you're looking for a sweet story which reminds of your childhood sweetheart, the one that got away (or you let go of) due to unavoidable circumstance (which I was before watching this movie), then watch "A Werewolf Boy". This is not a horror/suspense movie though, don't expect such things. Just be ready with your tissue box, because this movie will definitely make you cry.
