Title: A Werewolf Boy / 늑대소
Director: Jo Sung-Hee
Genre: Fantasy, Romance
Release Date: October 2012
Country: South Korea


A Werewolf Boy (Hangul: 늑대소년; RR: Neukdae Sonyeon; lit. "Wolf Boy") is a 2012 South Korean fantasy romance film in which a beautiful teenage girl (Park Bo-young) is sent to a country house for her health, where she befriends and attempts to civilize a feral boy (Song Joong-ki) she discovers on the grounds — but the beast inside him is constantly waiting to burst out.

Kim Suni, an elderly woman in her sixties living in the US, receives a phone call about the sale of her old family home back in South Korea. Returning to her homeland, she's met by granddaughter Eun-joo, and they drive to the house in the country and stay the night. Suni recalls how 47 years ago when she was a teenage girl in 1965, she moved from Seoul along with her widowed mother and sister Sun-ja to a remote valley to undergo a period of convalescence after suffering problems with her lungs. The Kims lived in genteel poverty at the mercy of their arrogant and foppish landlord, Ji-tae, son of the business partner of Suni's late father. Because of her delicate health, the beautiful yet introverted Suni lives an isolated life in the country home, without any friends her age.

One night, Suni glimpses a shadow in the outhouse; the next day, she discovers a feral boy of about 19 crouching in their yard. The boy's body temperature is 46 degrees Celsius, his blood type unidentifiable, and he can neither read nor speak. Even though he behaves like a wild beast, Suni's kindhearted mother adopts him and names him Chul-soo, assuming he's one of more than 60,000 children orphaned in the Korean War.

At first Suni considers him a nuisance, but eventually has fun taming him according to a dog-training manual. She teaches him how to wait patiently before a meal, how to wear clothes, how to speak, how to write and other human behavior so that he could one day live like a normal man. Chul-soo demonstrates unswerving loyalty and superhuman brawn, thus inspiring the envy of Ji-tae, who lusts after Suni.

As Suni attempts to "civilize" the beast, the two eventually become very close. Suni opens her heart to Chul-soo, and he in turn falls in love with her, the only person to ever show him affection. But their relationship is fraught with difficulties, as Ji-tae begins to cause trouble. Feeling threatened, Chul-soo lets loose his bestial instincts, and in their fear the town villagers turn on him.

In order to save the life of the boy who risked his to be by her side, Suni leaves him with a promise: "Wait for me. I’ll come back for you." (Credit: Wikipedia)

Kim Suni: “Knowing more sounds great, but it makes you a coward. There is only one chance in our life. That time.....never comes back.”

Assistant TV commercial director Choi Bo-Na (Lee Si-Young) multi-task at work. Due to working overtime, her appearance is always in a mess. Choi Bo-Na has not been dating in years as well. She met famous actor Lee Seung-Jae (Oh Jung-Se) during a shooting, and he complain about the height of the lady he is shooting the film with. Due to this, the whole concept behind the commercial has to be changed. Choi Bo-Na complain about Lee Seung-Jae's working attitude, which annoys Lee Seung-Jae.
After the completion of filming, Choi Bo-Na strolls at the beach. Her colleagues has already left back for Seoul without her. While waking on the beach at night, she chance upon an unique stall selling various instructional tapes. The shop owner (Park Young-Gyu) persuades her into buying a set - a $500 dollar instruction
nal tape set on how to use men with different persuasive acts, which will change Choi Bo-Na's life.

A totally hilarious movie, actor, Oh Jung Se might not be the typical suave Korean actor but he is definitely one with his own charisma. He is really comical and funny in this movie, I cannot help burst out laughing with his every expression and actions. I like Lee Si Young in the drama, 'Wild Romance' and her character in 'How to use a guy with secret tips' reminds me of her role as Yoo Eun Jae.

The movie included some scenes on the characters playing 'Where's Wally', it brings back some of my childhood memories. :) If you are looking for a good laugh, 'How to use a guy with secret tips' is definitely a movie that will not disappoint you!
