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.

I couldn't lie how I love this movie so much. I found myself enjoy watching it. There is credits to the director and two main casts who steal all the show. The relationship between soon-yi and chul-so was built really well from the beginning. How soon-yi treats him like a dog to become more than that. For me, the chemistry between Bo-yeong and joong-ki is the strongest aspect that makes this movie more alive and successful. Especially for joong-ki, he acts really convincing as an innocent wolf-boy.
Unfortunately, there is a big mistake for the make up and visual effects especially when chul-so turns into a werewolf. The visual effects look horrible and cheap, the studio should hire a professional one to make the werewolf looks real. I think visual effects in korean movie has improved nowadays and definitely not as poor as this movie has.
Beside weak visual effects, A Werewolf Boy is still a funny, beautiful and touching drama. It also very sweet and brings tears even to men. It's not the best ever korean movie for sure but it's still enjoyable to see and I personal love this movie!
