Watched this movie for both Park Bo Young (loved her in Speedy Scandal) and of course, the ethereal Song Joongki. I had high expectations and I wasn't disappointed in any way.

Although this movie was done in flashback, it was easy to follow and did not leave me confused (like certain flashback movies). The story line was great albeit a little too simple, with its fair share of hilarious antics and sad read more moments that had me crying like a baby. Nevertheless, the story was more than well-supported by an amazing cast. Bo Young was fantastic as Suni. She acted really well and her crying scenes made me cry MORE than her!

The star of the show has got to be Joong Ki, definitely. As much as I love him, I have never really considered him as an amazing actor (because the roles he were given so far were not so challenging, i guess). But he proved his worth in this movie due to his versatility. And catch this - he has barely 5 lines in the entire movie! This goes to show how great of an actor he is, being able to carry a story along just through actions. Super impressed!

I love, love, love this movie and consider this to be the best work of both of them so far. Will rewatch it!

This movie should have been made silent... I mean with no words... I honestly would watch with the same pleasure as I just did... the words in this movie were even distracting... ChulSu's silence was telling so much... so much... the words were unnecessary...

This movie is perfect with just the light and bitter-sweet music and perfect, so perfect acting, the colors it has, the beautiful yellow and deep blue, the calm read more air it has around...the words are distracting...

If you think you are going to watch a story how a girl made a human out of a boy raised/born as a wolf, you are so far away from what you are going to see in this movie. This is a story about people, how some people look like monsters and are the most humane beings you could find, this is a story about people that look nice, but the worst monsters you could have the misfortune to meet... this is a story about choice and responsibility we bear for every person we meet in our life, how our smallest action can influence their life, how their action - could influence yours, how careful you should be with the words you use, as you never know what it will mean for the person before you...

I am really fighting for words with my brain to explain in what a mess I am right now, this movie just blew the air out of me, and I am really fighting to bring a string of cohesive thought back into my head (that is full of guitars, alphabet letters, yellow fields and blue forests, books and sweaters, shoe-laces and pencils, and finally JoongKi's eyes, oh, those eyes...)

In the beginning I mentioned about the words in the movie, well, believe it or not, JoongKi says only 10 words in the movie (and you'll be sane enough to hear only 1 of them, as then you'll still be holding on, but when the other 9 will be said, you'll be... as I was... weeping into you blanket/pillow, not to wake your parents...)

This movie was one of the most beautifully shot movies I have ever seen, so much calmness and so many colors...

Make a Recommendation More recs (2)Recommendations

"A Werewolf Boy" was my first tearjerker. Both movies have gone into my collection of movies that make you cry. They are both beautiful, everything the guy did he did for the girl, and it makes you long for men like that to have in life although Koizora was based off the writers real experience. I would definitely suggest making a "Movies that make Me cry" collection with these 2 as the first to.

'Dog' turned human romance story. Chul Soo (Song Joong Ki)'s character is like a wolf that suddenly gained a human body [yes he is a werewolf but this is how his character acts] where Shiro (Toyokawa Etsushi) is shown to be a guide dog given a human body to find the girl that raised him as a puppy. If you liked one you'll probably like the other.

    This movie was amazing. I'm usually not a big fan of movies because I feel like it's too short to develop any emotional attachment to the characters, but this movie was pure gold and I was immediately invested in the characters and their story. It's a beautiful story and so heart wrenching, it hurts. One of the best movies I've ever seen, without a doubt.

    It literally broke my heart. Hate sad endings. The first human instinct was love for that wolf boy...

    Pretty decent. Not life-changing, not too impactful, but a decent way to spend two hours. Also Song Joong Ki is complete eye candy, so there's that.

    The movie was really good, but I wish it was made into a drama instead where we got to see the two bond and even reunite after being separated.
