Despite the upcoming international release of billion dollar franchise and supernatural counterpart Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, CJ Entertainment's latest film "A Werewolf Boy" shows little sign of slowing down in the box office.

"A Werewolf Boy" is South Korean writer and director Jo Sung-hee's first commercial film. Recognized internationally for his artistic mystery "End of Animal" (2010) and short film "Don't Step Out of the House" (2008), which placed third in the Cinéfondation category at 2009's Festival de Cannes, Jo brings his talent of storytelling back to life with "A Werewolf Boy". His artistic direction is supported by rising young stars Song Joong-ki and PARK Bo-young, who bring to the screen a unique chemistry to tell the tale of a supernatural romance. As Jo describes the film, "'A Werewolf Boy' is a fantasy of the emotions. It is a fantasy because it shows a kind of 'love' that many don't believe can exist in this kind of world".
 
In North America, the film has received glowing early notices at film festivals, including Toronto International Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, and Hawaii International Film Festival. Anderson Le of HIFF says that "A Werewolf Boy" is "one of the best Korean films of the year", and Giovanni Fulvi describes the film as an "affecting melodrama of youthful longing and lost innocence".

Mods I'm not sure why it said the video was no longer available for you because it works just fine for me and the account has not been terminated.

Song Joong Ki is on fire. He'll have to go to the army soon though, since he just turned 28(?).
As usual I Am jealous of Americans who get all fun things.

___varying 19th-Nov-2012 09:05 pm (UTC)
Lol the captions are so cheesy but I know I'd love this - it looks really pretty and I'm such a sucker for fairy tale-y things and SJK. Will they be screening it in other countries besides the US/Canada?
ceecile 19th-Nov-2012 09:12 pm (UTC)
Idk, it doesn't say on the website but I hope so. The chances of it screening where I live (France) are too low lol.
___varying 19th-Nov-2012 10:18 pm (UTC)
Crossing my fingers for a UK release at some point! Otherwise it'll have to be the internetz for me, haha.
ceecile 19th-Nov-2012 10:29 pm (UTC)
Same. With subtitles because I don't speak Korean.
yingmoon26 19th-Nov-2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
"Coming soon to North American theaters!"

but the list has only American theatres. Unless they add Canadian locations...but even then I don't think they would air it in my city lol..
ceecile 19th-Nov-2012 09:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah on the official website it says "Coming soon to selected U.S. theaters" but if you click on locations http://www.awerewolfboy.com/#!locations-/c1vlv there are two in Toronto and one in Vancouver. Idk why they didn't mention it in the article. I'll edit it in.
ceecile 19th-Nov-2012 09:29 pm (UTC)
In the trailer you see him sort of turn into one. His hand does at least.
hillando 19th-Nov-2012 10:52 pm (UTC)
i saw the movie but can't remember clearly anymore, but i think he stayed clothed after the transformation lol
sisterjune 20th-Nov-2012 07:59 am (UTC)
for the record I've seen joong ki's shirtless form a few times in dramas and variety (very recently as well) and he doesnt have abs. just a normal thin dude body lol. all soft like a marshmallow hahaha. but thats ok.
mjspice 20th-Nov-2012 12:34 pm (UTC)
This exactly.
sweetemerald513 19th-Nov-2012 10:01 pm (UTC)

An actual filming in my city? OH MY GAWD.
embroideredkiss 19th-Nov-2012 10:37 pm (UTC)
Watched this the other day, this film is really good, Song Joongki can say so much with a facial expression.

"Song Joongki can say so much with a facial expression."

trex_in_boots 19th-Nov-2012 10:45 pm (UTC)

miki_831 19th-Nov-2012 10:58 pm (UTC)

cruel_disorder 19th-Nov-2012 11:05 pm (UTC)
Wow exciting!
joong_ki 19th-Nov-2012 11:21 pm (UTC)

I knew Fashion Valley was going to have it, they had like two other Korean films the other time I went so I knew it was just a matter of time before they had this movie. I am so excited. It is going to be glorious seeing Song Joong Ki on the big screen.
the_lazy_one 19th-Nov-2012 11:31 pm (UTC)
It doesn't even matter that it's in the ghetto theater here in Daly City. LOL It's Joongki so I'm definitely going to watch it. YEEESSSS. XD
weruintooeasy 20th-Nov-2012 12:50 am (UTC)
sjk has made some fantastic choices regarding his career. he and yoo ah in were by far my favourites in skks so i'm happy for him especially since he's legit talented and has such range as an actor.
lightframes 20th-Nov-2012 01:22 am (UTC)
I want to support it, but the closest theater showing it is in a different state, lol
jongiu 20th-Nov-2012 01:42 am (UTC)
I might be able to get a ride to NYC, though i don't count on it.

I swear it's like some fanfic come to life, looks good, will probably get it on DVD.
tsuyoi_hikari 20th-Nov-2012 02:24 am (UTC)
I seriously can't wait for this to be released in DVD/Blue-ray. I'm super excited to watch this since I saw the teaser though I can smell sad ending from miles away... :3
myzarie 20th-Nov-2012 02:30 am (UTC)

falling_empress 20th-Nov-2012 06:33 am (UTC)
Hey look it's Edward Scissorhands except Korean...and a werewolf.
cee_90 20th-Nov-2012 08:45 am (UTC)
the plot seems...not too out of ordinary but I'll watch anything with song joong ki in it because he can make a cliche ordinary scene become extraordinary. And park bo young!!! She's a great actress so I think no matter how cheesy the storyline is, I'll drown in their acting. Too bad it's not available yet in my country :(
itskimbitches 20th-Nov-2012 10:45 am (UTC)
yikes this looks horrible...like a bad version of red ridding hood the movie
uglypricetag 20th-Nov-2012 12:16 pm (UTC)

mjspice 20th-Nov-2012 12:36 pm (UTC)

xxmannequin 20th-Nov-2012 01:03 pm (UTC)
It looked pretty when I first saw the trailer so I'll be definitely watching it. Song Joong Ki <3
yamapilovergyal 20th-Nov-2012 02:04 pm (UTC)
