Park Bo-young to romance wolf boy Song Joong-ki

Yup. You read that right. Song Joong-ki. As a Wolf Boy. Well that’s the title of the movie, and it’s not a figurative one, so it looks like he’ll be wolfing out for his next role, baby face be damned. And Park Bo-young has been cast as the girl who falls in love with Teen Wolf. I don’t know what to do first — squeal about the casting, or scratch my head at the idea that someone thought Song Joong-ki looked wolfish. I mean, does he even grow facial hair?

Wolf Boy is the feature film debut from up-and-coming director Jo Sung-hee, who’s been leaving an impression on Chungmuro with his short films over the last few years. His work ranges from mystery to drama, and he describes the movie as being a pure love story, like that of Edward Scissorhands. Oh, well that changes a lot. Edward Scissorhands is a very distinct take on the genre — tonally, visually. That could be interesting, that is, if he can pull off Edward Wolfypaws rather than end up with An American Werewolf in Seoul.

Park Bo-young plays a young girl who one day finds a wolf boy in an isolated house, and then the two eventually fall in love. Well that’s not much in the way of plot, but hopefully there’s more to it than wolf meets girl, girl loves wolf, wolf represses wolfie instincts for girl. ‘Cause if wolfiness becomes a stand-in for cancer, I’m out.

Aside from the possibly awesome, potentially crazy, and probably campy wolfie plot, I’m excited about these two young and talented actors sharing the screen together. They’ve technically been co-stars already, earlier this year as birds in the Korean dub for the animated film Rio. Below are some pictures of them doing promotional shoots for the movie, looking ridiculously adorable together.

Wolf Boy will complete casting and enter production in October, and meanwhile Song Joong-ki has two other projects slated for the fall — Penny-Pinching Romance, his rom-com with Han Ye-seul, and his role as the young King Sejong the Great in the SBS drama Tree With Deep Roots. Busy, busy!

If this is a hit, they could reunite the YAI & SJK couple in the sequel. It would be about a boy and a wolf boy. Or make it 2 wolf boys, RAWR =)

If k-drama producers would just think a little more progressively: we could get our ultimate OTP to reunite for more bromance (small b, capital R).

Hahaha. I remember that episode "I told you didn't I? I told you I loved Monday Couple". And when she got mad at Joong-ki for trying to create a loveline with Ji-hyo. HAHAHA. Poor Genius Boy. I just love how his hand is awkwardly on her shoulder/back in the picture above. It's like he has to put his hand there for the pictures, but he's worried he might make her uncomfortable. I say these two should date. X)

You know... I think Song Joong-ki (along with Yoo Ah-in) are the only guys who look better in Historical dress then in modern clothes....

And personal I'd be more worried if it comes out like Twilight... isn't that supposed to have used k drama cliches (in the worst possible way)?

maybe they want to give something like Romulus&Remus.They are Rome's twin founders in its traditional foundation myth. The legend says that a she-wolf found them and suckled them.

from wiki:
A feral child (also, colloquially, wild child) is a human child who has lived isolated from human contact from a very young age, and has no (or little) experience of human care, loving or social behavior, and, crucially, of human language.[1] Some feral children have been confined by people (usually their own parents); in some cases this child abandonment was due to the parents' rejection of a child's severe intellectual or physical impairment. Feral children may have experienced severe child abuse or trauma before being abandoned or running away. Others are alleged to have been brought up by animals; some are said to have lived in the wild on their own. Over one hundred cases of supposedly feral children are known.

yap I suppose this plot would blow Korean minds, because they have something like 98% schooled kids, while in other countries around the World the numbers are a lot smaller

That's what I was thinking when I read girlfriday's post. Heck, 48 Hours/60 Minutes even did a filming on some of the kids in America that this happened to. The one that stands out most was the little girl practically raised by dogs from her young age, so she would walk on all fours and stuff like that. I'm wondering if that's how it'll be for Joong-ki's character.

It was something similar on National Geographic or a channel in this category
It was overwhelming and heartwarming way more than a kdrama about a Cinderella or a Candy

I love this casting, but I wonder what Joongki's character will be like? I never seen Joongki being badass so this should be good or else if he's some emo kid then that's depressing lol Yay i get to see more Park bo young! what ever happened to her other movies?

I've seen them in Running Man together, and I know all about the Rio promotions they had together, and I've really just come to see them as a cute sister/brother combo. Park Bo-young even said in an interview she wants an older brother like Joong-ki... so as lovers? =/ Oh I dunno. I hope I can shake this silly thought and not just see it as a massive incestual movie, as I really am a massive fan of the both of them!

This sounds so absurd starting with the casting lol I adore Park Bo Young and Song Joong Ki, but SJK wolf boy?! Also, they do seem more like siblings the more I see them together. I can't imagine SJK with crazy facial hair... The story sounds very iffy. I'm still excited to watch SJK (since I'm trying to watch everything he comes out in ehehe), but I have zero expectations for this. However, I do know the pairing will have adorable chemistry! Then again I don't know if adorable would fit a movie about a wolf... lol

Park Bo-young and him are such a cute pair, though the thought of a teen/boy wolf romance makes me anxious, its not exactly my cup of tea subject/genre wise but i'll just have to wait and see.

That could be interesting, that is, if he can pull off Edward Wolfypaws rather than end up with An American Werewolf in Seoul.

Haha! Good one GF. For a second there, I thought of Wolverine Boy. He'd be more attractive if so.

Gawd, PBY and SJK look so freakin' cute as the voices of Rio's "Jewel and Blue" Korean version. I love their periwinkle matching outfits for the promo shoots. Now I want to see the Korean version of Rio just to hear their voice acting.

I love Joong-Ki. He looks more like a bunny than a wolf, though. Seriously, just add lop ears to him. Still, somehow he pulled off arrogant, besotted playboy, so wolf can't be too hard.
And Bo-young is made of win. I always enjoy watching her on-screen.
So, yay!

"I mean, does he even grow facial hair?"

Looks like his dna forbids any growth except for eyebrows & lashes. Looks like eyebrows can't even dare to overgrow.

And my question is: Will fake facial hair even stick to that smooth skin?

fangs. big ears. bushy eyebrows. on Song Joong-ki? Oh my heart!

Is Wolf Boy a remake of 1985 Teen Wolf an American fantasy comedy film?

Starring Michael J Fox, as Scott Howard, a high school student who discovers that his family has an unusual pedigree when he finds himself transforming into a werewolf.

The film was followed by a sequel in 1987 entitled Teen Wolf Too.

Teen Wolf Plot

High school student Scott Howard is seventeen years old, sick of being average and wishing he were special. His father runs a local hardware store. Scott plays basketball for his high school's team, the Beavers, with a not-so-good win-loss record. The girl of his dreams, Pamela Wells, is dating Mick, a jerk from an opposing high school team, the Dragons. After another of the team's losses, Scott begins to notice strange changes to his body. While at a party, Scott keeps undergoing changes and eventually he returns home, locks himself in the bathroom, and undergoes a complete change and becomes a werewolf, while his father demands that he open the door. He tries to refuse, only to finally give in and obey, to find his father has also transformed into a werewolf.

Harold - who is Scott's father - never told his son about the condition because "sometimes it skips a generation" and he was hoping it wouldn't happen to Scott.

Song Joong-ki plays Scott Howard
Park Bo-young plays Pamela Wells
