Ah, the story of a teenage girl who falls in love with a teenage boy who happens to be a werewolf. Haven’t we all been there? South Korea apparently fell wacky in love for the film, because it’s proven to be a massive hit over there, taking the #1 spot for five straight weeks. And now CJ Entertainment is bringing the film Stateside this November 30th with limited run dates in California screens, before expanding into other cities (and Canada) on December 7th.

Summoned by an unexpected phone call, an elderly woman visits the country cottage she lived in as a child. Memories of a boy she knew 60 years ago come flooding back to her. Then young Suni and her family moved to a small village in Korea. There, they encounter a bedraggled orphan boy hiding under a bush and take him in out of pity. Called a “wolf boy” by some for his feral behavior and uncommon strength, Suni teaches the boy how to eat at a table, and read and write so that he might one day live among people. He repays her kindness with a devotion unequalled by any human being, a love that exceeds all normal expectations. Then one day a threat to Suni exposes the boy’s deadly bestial instincts, and in an instant he becomes the subject of the villagers’ fears. In order to save the boy’s life, Suni must abandon him while promising, “Wait for me. I’ll come back for you.”

Starring Park Bo-young and Song Joong-ki.
