Wolf Boy takes the box office
by | November 3, 2012 | 157 Comments

There seems to be no end in sight to the string of domestic box office hits in Korea this year. Wolf Boy starring Song Joong-ki and Park Bo-young opened in first place this week, and is poised to sell over 500,000 tickets in four days. The film is receiving heaps of critical praise as well, and now Song Joong-ki is being called the king of both screens small and big, with his Nice Guy / Wolf Boy double-first-place killer combo. One Pretty Face to Rule Them All.

It’s just fantastic timing for him, because Nice Guy (KBS’s current Wednesday-Thursday drama and ratings leader) is one of those turning point roles for his career. He’s been the lead in films before, but it’s his first time as a carry-a-drama leading man, and having the show and his concurrent movie both end up commercial successes means big big things for Song.

Wolf Boy is an unusual love story between a reserved girl who’s shut away in a country home and a feral wolf boy. They develop a friendship and she teaches him how to be more human (the toothbrushing still below is my favorite), and they eventually fall in love. But of course when the town discovers that they have a dangerous creature in their midst, the trouble begins.

I can’t wait to get my hands on this movie, mostly because every single still and trailer I’ve seen is gorgeously shot. The film is written and directed by Jo Sung-hee (of horror film End of Animal), and in three days at the box office, it sold 457,205 tickets and heads into the weekend still at Number 1. Whether nice boy, bad boy, or wolf boy, one thing is certain: Song Joong-ki is the It Boy.

      • 2.2.2 JP

        Another med student here. Now I don’t feel so alone and crazy watching all the kdrama/pop stuff by myself

    • 2.3 Gabrielle O

      Lol, you don’t even understand how happy I am to hear your in medical school 😛 Ive wanted to be a doctor for going on 8 years now and the one thing ive wondered is how I’m going to manage a Korean Drama lifestyle along with medical school XD thank god I have a little over 2 years to bask in my freedom 😛

      • 2.3.1 OMG

        its hard but u find time for it….

      • 2.3.2 Peridot

        While I’m not in med school (I am in grad school though!), I can understand your concern 🙂 I’m thinking about all of the upcoming dramas I want to see and how I will find time for them next semester. Dramas are my escape from the world of adulthood!

        • fdyane

          hey we r da same! yeah its my escape

        • vanserena

          Grad school too!

    • 2.4 nouynouy

      me too 😀 yay for med students !

    • 2.5 OMG

      U guys r so awesome…its amazing to know that m not the only one going thru this hardness that’s balancing KDRAMAS/med school/American tv shows/anime sometimes…..ahaha.
      @rui…its hard cuz med school is a lot of work but u make time for it…take a few hours off sleeping…no biggie….lol!

      The only thing that makes me kinda angry is the fact that i took a whole year off btw med school where i had tons of free time…yet i discovered kdramas the summer before med school!!! AHH!!!! so much kdrama watching could have occurred…. *_*

      • 2.5.1 Peridot

        I used to watch a few k-dramas here and there. When I was earning my first masters, I hardly ever had free time. I was reading and writing all the time. After I took my writing exams to get my degree, I had a few months during the summer to myself. That’s when I became an avid k-drama watcher. Things are slightly easier for my second masters (depending on the type of courses I am taking), but I also feel like I discovered things later in life. I have other interests but feel that the real world is closing in on me too soon.

        • Arhazivory

          I had zero time while I was writing up my masters. Next year I’ll start my PhD so I’m just enjoying dramas while I can.

          • Peridot

            Wow, going for your PhD! While the expectations and workload will be heavy, I’m sure that you can set a little time for yourself to watch dramas (and do other things) 🙂 All the best!

          • bishbash

            I’m in my final year of PhD and I MUST watch at least an episode of something every night. Else I can’t sleep. Backlogging dramas worry me as much as writing thesis. LOL

      • 2.5.2 Annie

        I’m an Anesthesiologist, but I married into 3 generations of Neurologists and Cardiologists. I’m blessed because now I have instant treatment right at my finger tips for my K-drama addiction. My mother-on-law always telling me that she going to have my husband and father-in-law fix my heart and mind because I’m always watching k-drama…LOL

        • Enz

          Hello there.. Fellow anaesthetist! 🙂

        • Enz

          I imagine you must be practicing in north America if you call yourself an anaesthesiologist?

    • 2.6 citizens

      I am a medical student, too. He he.Final exam is there

    • 2.7 Titi

      I’m a medical doctor doing my internship now! 😀 next year I’ll start my residency in pediatric. Any pediatrician here?
      Sooo happy to know many medical personnel also watch kdramas!
      How to survive? Just less sleep (really) and a nice app in your gadget to watch videos between attending one patient and another… ;p

      Btw SJK is looking yummier and even younger recently! Does he age backwards?

      • 2.7.1 Peridot

        He must have the secret to eternal youth! Every time I see him, I ask myself, “how old is he?”

      • 2.7.2 UJ

        i am not a pediatrician but i did complete my ward rotation in pediatrics last week…i may even take it up as my specialization…i did like it^^

    • 2.8 srainy

      haha so many of us here! i’m a 4th year medical student! lots of sleep loss really to make up the drama watching with studying x) consider it good training to all the lack of sleep we’ll be getting once we start our internship…

    • 2.9 merci

      another med student here! =)

      • 2.9.1 alwaesboo

        omg guiseeeee count me in too! meddie here. hahaha HAHAHA LOVE SJK TO BITS. HAHAHA now i know i’m not the only crazy one spending my precious off time watching kdramas hahaha

  3. Mystisith

    A very talented actor in a movie that I want to see. I’m happy for him and for the SK film industry. I know other countries which should check out what’s happening there… *cough*mine*cough.

  4. mskololia

    I am so happy for SJK and cannot wait to watch this movie. Gah. It looks fantastic.

  5. danna

    And I couldn’t be happier for SJK….knew the boy was talented since his Triple days but having proved to be my absolute favourite in SKKS, I’ve been dying for him to get here…I’m just hoping he doesn;t have to leave for the army very soon since he’s hitting 28 next year…Please Korea just let us have him for at least one more full year?

    • 5.1 Mystisith

      Leaving to MS with a BANG is a good thing. I’d rather have him spared the MS but since he has to do it… Once NG and WB promo is ended, seems a good timing to me.

    • 5.2 Sabah

      I could be wrong but I am hoping that he has already served his duty. I have been informed that his same age friend Lee Kwang Soo has already done his, and their début were around the same time so… Like I said, I could be wrong but I am hoping I’m not…

      • 5.2.1 kristi

        He hasn’t. He still has one semester left before graduation (which he has put off for a variety of reasons), and being in college gives him some leeway with his military service.

        • Sabah

          Thanks for the info, though it makes me sad…

    • 5.3 Nokcha

      I remember seeing him in Triple and every time he was on, I kept thinking, “Who is this kid?” He just absorbed every scene. After his presence was gone, I kept thinking about him and then anticipating each upcoming scene. He’s almost too pretty for being such a good actor.

  6. Biscuit

    I remember when I first saw him in Triple and was wondering when he would hit it big.

    I’m so happy for him. This will hopefully help him get bigger and better projects for the future.

    • 6.1 alwaesboo

      i know! he was like the only good thing in Triple. I didnt like that drama much, but i kept looking out for him- his face and his ice skating skills hahahaha

    • 6.2 im_eve

      he deserves the IT thing he’s getting now. i don’t know but of the guys his years right now, at this moment, i feel like he deserves it the most. coz i think he is serious with his craft…but also chill about it. like he knows he’ll get it when it’s time and not rushing it or fighting over others for it. he’s just working it..and now he’w working his way up! GO YEORIM!!!! 😀

  7. Saima

    That’s just great! Am glad SJK took a melo to show his range as an actor in his first drama lead role. His success has been a long time coming.

    • 7.1 enz

      NG is the first thing Ive seen SJK in and I am blown away by how natural and relaxed he is in his acting. that baby face with that talent and intensity is just slaying me

  8. jyyjc

    The stills looks so sad……It looks like she’s forced to abandon him T____T

  9. mellowyel

    II went to a talk about the Hallyu wave, and this guy was saying ythat a big reason the movie industry has done so well recently is the shift from big budget SFX extravaganzas like D-Wars to low(er)-budget films with good stories. And that Korean film crews are awesome at what they do and make gorgeous films. Haven’t seen a ton of Korean movies, but these stills and the film’s success seem to prove that point. Maybe you guys can do a movie podcast? Tell us about your fave movies abd stuff? Or have you done one of these already?

    • 9.1 JO

      I would kind of disagree. Korea has done really well in terms of high art films since the 90s (or maybe even before that) that have a great deal of complex story telling and amazing acting. However, I would have to agree in terms of “popular” movies, “popular” meaning movies not made to win cannes film festival awards.

      • 9.1.1 Dominique


        I stay away from movies that are well received in Cannes, Venice or Berlin, like a plague. Those Europeans have really out-of-whack taste and standards …

        I’ve often wondered where the hell the South Korean dramas got their melo cancer genes. They certainly did not invent the genre. It has to be the post-WWII French films, the so-called auteur-cinema, which never caught on in Britain or America (we know better), but which for incomprehensible reasons became the standard in South Korea.

  10. 10 Butterbacon

    Wow. It’s his time now. We all got distracted, didn’t we? For a while it was all about LMH. Then we went bonkers over JIlWoo. And finally. We come back to SJK. Gotta love it. There’s just no shortage of beautiful talented men.

  11. 11 Jilly

    They totally look like siblings. Thy have boy/girl versions of the same face XD

    • 11.1 Lauren

      omg. I thought I was the only one who saw it. I think I will be able to watch this movie if I ignore the fact that park bo young and song joong ki don’t look alike.

      • 11.1.1 Lauren

        *look alike.

    • 11.2 Jade Butterfly

      I saw the uncanny resemblance too!
      Especially in the 1st still above.

  12. 12 latrskss

    I’m so happy for him!!! Couldn’t say it better, girlfriday.

  13. 13 UJ

    Korea is in love with Song Joong Ki…and i would just say this → its about time now Korea!! the boy is gorgeous and talented!

    cant wait to watch this movie!!!! please someone sub it fast XD

    • 13.1 Addylovesbwood

      Where can I watch the movies online. I’ve been strictly kdramas for a yr…its about time I ventured out to the bigger screen.

      • 13.1.1 UJ

        the drama sites that post dramas also post movies there…try checking …they have loads of movies along with the dramas^^

        • Miss D

          I’m searching for it but my handy kdrama sites are failing me…..I guess now would be a great time to buy a Rosetta stone and learn Korean!

    • 13.2 jєѕѕα™ 주원사랑 (@jung_kYro)

      You’re right! He’s really talented. He can also sing and dance.

      I’ve watched some of his previous dramas and movies, and I could say that this boy really knows how to act! He can do both comedy and heavy drama. The emotion he exerts and his facial expressions are perfect for every scene he makes.

      Now, I’m moving SJK several notch higher on my favorite actors list. He’s currently #2. 🙂

      • 13.2.1 UJ

        totally agree with you!
        he is kind of a scene stealer for me….when i was watching triple i always found his character to be adorable…cute enough for me to actually repeat his part^^
        In Will it snow for Christmas he had a very small role but he was an adorable doting oppa..
        But it was Sungkyunkwan scandal that made me his fan…i may have fallen for Yoochun through that drama but Gu Yong Ha was my fav character of the drama ♡ aaaaah i loved his flirty ways and his funny twirls! Ahh i miss that character!!
        And currently he is doing so well in Nice Guy! Gosh i am positively spazzing over Joong Ki here!!
        This boy will do great things…i just hope his effort is recognized at the award ceremonies too 🙂

        • jєѕѕα™ 주원사랑 (@jung_kYro)

          You should also try Obstetrics and Gynecology Doctors. Even if he only got a supporting role, he also did great there. If you are into medical dramas, OaGD is a good drama to watch. It’s my second favorite medical drama, next to New Heart.

          • UJ

            i have not seen Obs/Gyn…but i might check it out later^^
            and yes i am into medical dramas because i belong to this profession 😀

    • 13.3 kristi

      He’s never lacked for popularity in Korea. 🙂

      The challenge has been for him to be taken seriously as an actor. (Call it the Leonardo Dicaprio or Robert Redford dilemma.) He’s never, ever been embroiled in any controversy over his acting, that’s never been the issue. But in the early days, they (both the industry and the audience) just couldn’t get past his looks and it often resulted in their underestimating his potential and abilities as an actor. He changed that with Tree With Deep Roots last year, and his double home-run this year with Nice Guy and A Werewolf Boy cement it. His roles in NG and AWB are so wide apart, the fact that the industry people and the audience can see for themselves what he can do simultaneously means that they’ll never mistake him for anything but a dead serious actor and an incredibly talented one at that.

      • 13.3.1 opn

        I’m a new fan of SJK. He’s a revelation to me. I’m not necessarily disagreeing with you on the LeoD comparison but IMO, if there’s anyone in HW A-list that had to fight off and work hard to get off from his pretty boy image that shows in his body of work, that would be Brad Pitt. I hope SJK with his abundance of talent and charisma, follows a similar career trajectory. Like Pitt, he is a character actor trapped in a leading man’s body.

  14. 14 love song joong ki

    cant wait to watch the movie! the girl seems very cute, and song joong ki…. my fave k-actor, he is cute, handsome and very talented…

  15. 15 ladida

    “One Pretty Face to Rule Them All” Teehee. Congrats SJK!

  16. 16 JC

    I /adore/ Song Joong Ki~ :3
    He’s pretty AND a talented actor, so I’m happy he’s finally getting the attention/lead roles that he deserves.
    I’ve been devotedly following Nice Guy, and I went back and watched the early episodes of Running Man because of him.
    Unfortunately, I missed out at watching this movie when it premiered at TIFF, so I hope it goes online soon!

  17. 17 jandoe

    “Whether nice boy, bad boy, or wolf boy, one thing is certain: Song Joong-ki is the It Boy.”

    GF I love youuu for saying this! All hail Song Joong Ki, I am SO effing proud and happy for his success, it’s about damn time!!

  18. 18 Y.

    “One Pretty Face to Rule Them All.”
    He can rule me any time he wants to ~if you know what I mean~ ;D


    I’m glad he’s getting all this love. I really liked his (short) performance in “Tree with deep roots” (but then again, I LOVED the series, so…), and I think it’s very intelligent of him to combine serious/light roles in both movies and TV-series.

    Go, talented kkotminam, go! ^^

  19. 19 Sabah

    There’s also his appearance in Kim Jong Kook’s comeback MV, for which he is gaining a lot of praise. He is wonderful in that too.

    • 19.1 Aylin

      Good MV., it actually has a meaning and they paid attention to details. IMO music videos that tell a story are way more interesting than dance in a box MV most idol groups have.

  20. 20 stars4u

    I really hope they show this movie here in the US and I’ll fly wherever they are showing it!!

  21. 21 Sam

    It was a real good vehicle for Song Joong Ki to show another side of his acting abilities. I really enjoyed the movie from a love story point of view. It was at our international film festival, which normally has that queer, indie feel to most films, and to a non-asian audience it might have felt short of ‘uniquely’ interesting, ie, my caucasian neighbours got up and left before the movie ended. Yet the asians in the theatre and the remaining open minded caucasian audience did enjoy it and clapped at the end of the production. For me, I loved it bec SJK had very few lines and yet thru his body actions and eyes, you believed his character to be sad, lonely, and longing for acceptance and love. I’ve also been watching the Nice Guy, so it’s wonderful to see his acting ranges both at the same time. From little words (WB) to many words that imprint (NG), he convinces you to believe in his character. I’m glad he chose this film to do. He’s becoming a great actor, not just yummy eye candy that i can’t stop eating up! =)

  22. 22 Anvesha

    His puppy dog face in the first still is so cute!! He really is the IT boy at this meoment. I feel so happy for him! I also want to watch this movie… Koreans are having a blast enjoying great movies one after another this year..

  23. 23 Conny

    DB needs to make a deal with the box offices in SK to allow us access to currently playing movies online. Just charge us the regular per ticket fee 😉
    Can’t wait to see this one. The plot alone has me reeled in, and the cast is just a bonus (albeit a very hot bonus!!).

    Slightly OT:

    Here lately I’ve been watching a SK movies that I missed the first time around on Netflix (my local cable provider even offers mostly SK flix in its foreign lineup and I love them for it).
    I just finished watching Welcome to Dongmakgol (onDemand) and omg, how funny/sad it was. I’ve also noticed that movies produced in SK seem to be much longer than a lot of movies that are produced in the US. The last 3 movies alone were all well over 140 minutes each. Yesterday I decided to watch Glove and The Front Line and I didn’t regret a single minute. There’s just something about Korean made movies that seems a cut above the rest. At least in my book.
    Movies like these just make me realize how much I’d love to have access to current feature films, especially with todays talent.

  24. 24 pigtookie

    glad to see him growing as an actor, and receiving the attention for it!
    i was surprised to see him as the lead role for nice guy, and am glad he’s doing well carrying the show.

  25. 25 crazedlu

    Pleeeease do a drama together. Very happy for Song Joongki’s success. ^^

  26. 26 saranga

    i hope this means good things for park bo-young too! 🙂 poor girl, wasting some of her best years not being able to act in anything due to legal issues. i loved her in speedy scandal. i don’t know if she’s done anything else, but would love to keep seeing more of her in the future.

    • 26.1 jєѕѕα™ 주원사랑 (@jung_kYro)

      She also has a movie with Joo Won last year entitled “Don’t Click”. I actually envy her though. Being paired with two of my favorite actors. HEhe! 🙂

  27. 27 Susy

    I’m so glad to see SJK doing so well. He’s a great actor and overall performer! 🙂

  28. 28 Kiara

    This is Song Joong-ki’s year both in dramas and movies. He’s one of my favorite and best of his generation. I’m very happy for the success of both “Wolf Boy” and “Nice Guy”.

  29. 29 graceface

    YAY!! I LOVE THIS MAN. Finally getting the recognition he deserves. He is so very photogenic and wonderful to watch, but he’s also got the talent. Too perfect. BUT HE’S STILL GOT ARMY. NOOOOOO. Army gods, please let us enjoy him a bit longer before you take him…

  30. 30 Steph

    Aww, I’m happy for Joon Ki! I lurve him and I can’t wait to see this movie.

  31. 31 Suzi Q

    SJK is on a roll….He is a major scene stealer from the very beginning of his career. Finally, he’s doing the lead parts. Much deserved success to a fine looking and talented actor.
    I hope he will hold off going into MS a little while longer.

  32. 32 kristi

    457,205 tickets in three days (Wed-Fri) is nothing. 🙂

    The film sold 419,024 tickets on Saturday. And it’s all but certain it’ll pass the one million mark today/Sunday.

    That means the goalpost now is how fast it can reach the two million mark.

  33. 33 Miss Kim

    Does anyone know where I can watch this with english subtitles? I’ve been dying to see this, but two big problems: I’m in the States and I don’t fluently speak/completely comprehend Korean :-/

    If you have a site/link, feel free to send me a message on tumblr (babymin)

  34. 34 Mia

    i really really want to see this movie soon 🙁

  35. 35 Pueo

    I saw this film at the Hawaii International Film Festival last month. It is a truly wonderful piece of art! I loved it so much! I wish I could see it again. I fell even more in love with Song Joong-Ki, something I didn’t think was possible!

  36. 36 miss c

    For those who have seen the movie, anyone willing to explain the ending for me? Am I the only one that didn’t get it?

    There were cute, sad and funny moments. However I thought it was too long, some parts dragged.

  37. 37 Ennayra

    “One Pretty Face to Rule Them All.”
    –Lol. You know, I really don’t mind that it’s him. I’ve loved (looking at/listening to/watching/internet stalking… I kid, I kid) him since SKKS, which made me go back and watch the Running Man’s he was in, lol.

    I’d watch “Obstetrics and Gynecology Doctors” just for him, but I can’t find English subs anywhere. Anyone know?

    I’m not watching Nice Guy, just hearing about it and trying not to get spoiled, but I’ll marathon it when I have time.

    I’m so glad the acting life is good to Song Joong-ki these days.

      Dramafever has it, but right now I want to set that website on fire.
      Everything is s l o w with that spinning red wheel in the middle. And no matter which of their tips I try it doesn’t work. This has only happened in the last couple weeks, btw.

      Does anyone else have this issue, or is it me?

        dramafever is still working within the confines of the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. They had a little message to say sorry and that they’re trying their best.

          birdscout –
          Thanks. I did see that message, but that was about uploading new dramas. I have been being tortured by watching old stuff.

          • birdscout

            Oh, I didn’t realize that it was the older ones that were so slow for you. I haven’t had that problem myself.

            I think that means you need to take a quick trip to Toronto to watch a k-movie.^^Gwanghae, The Man Who Became King, aka Masquerade, and Thieves are both playing now. I’m going to watch Gwanghae tonight 🙂 So excited!

            Maybe next Saturday – if they are still up. I can do a double feature.

        The hurricane is simply the latest “mea culpa” for DF’s inability to have consistent quality for the site. The site was fine until DF’s popularity exploded and then the tech support nosedived, along with not having sufficient servers.
        It’s always something over there – they can’t seem to catch up, particularly as they just moved to a new, huge office setup to add to their confusion.

          So funny you mention the servers.
          Every time I get frustrated with the lack of speed, I fire off another “Feedback”
          I am a paying member – use my money and BUY NEW SERVERS!

        No, I have the same problem …making me reconsider another year’s membership. Also, since Sept…can only see the first page of the reviews. Do not like the so called new and improved system. Lot’s of Problems!

      SKKS was the first time I’d ever seen Song Joong Ki and he was my most favorite of the Joseon F4. While most people were more drawn to the quiet hero played by Yoo Ah In, I just completely fell head over heels for Song Joong Ki’s Gu Yong Ha. It was a pretty awesome character for him to take.

      I’m glad he’s getting so much recognition for his acting and that he’s at a great break-through point in his career. I just wish I could see Wolf Boy soon since I have to wait for English subs.

      And like you, I ended up jumping on board Running Man because of Song Joong Ki. He’s quite influential with his pretty face and all; and I think it’s excellent that he’s the type of actor who can prove that even pretty faces can have great acting talent and skill.

      BTW, here’s a site for Obstetrics and Gynecology Doctors. I haven’t seen it myself either, but you can find English subs for a lot of series just about anywhere nowadays. But DramaFever is where I get my fix:

      I watched that on Youtube actually. someone had uploaded the series (el-subbed).

    So wishing Joong-ki success and wisdom how to use that success.

    I hadn’t seen Song Joong-ki in anything until Nice Guy, and I am loving him. I cannot wait to see this movie at some point. It probably won’t be in America for a while if ever. It just looks so good and sad.

    Song Joongi Ki
    Such a pretty face, too.

    I liked the meta in the scene where his face is all tore up and he comments “To tell you the truth, I like my face now. It’s become more like a human face. Having a painting-like, good-looking face is getting really boring now.”

    While I don’t think SJK wishes he were ugly, it would be easier to be taken seriously if he weren’t so ridiculously surreally beautiful. I think LKJ had/has the same “problem” if you want to call it that.

    I’ve never been so happy for an actor/actress! Seeing him grow as an actor finally receiving the recognition is awesome.

  43. 43 Pitch

    Aww, I lurve him. Glad he is doing well.

  44. 44 Tha

    I’d give my arm to have him do another historical drama! loved him in Tree With Deep Roots!

    I saw it at the world premiere in Toronto, it was awesome.
    I sat behind Park Bo-Young, she’s so cute.

      Really?!? Lucky you! I have lived in T.O. or very close by for the last 41 years and I have yet to go to TIFF. I am determined to see a Kmovie at TIFF next September!!!

  46. 46 Noelle

    Aww. I love him sooo much. It’s gonna make me so sad when he has to go off to Military duty.

    Can’t wait to watch.

  47. 47 Siyi

    Yayyy, glad to hear it’s doing well. I’m super excited to see this movie too! <3 Song Joong Ki

    I just hope that this will be screened in Dubai Film Festival, it was screen in Abu Dhabi film festival last October but its way to far for me to go on a weekday..

    Song Joong Ki! Cheers!

    I saw this at the VIFF! Song Joongki was AMAZING! Look forward to seeing it again when it’s available for the small screen!

    This is truly Song Joong Ki’s year. He’s been everywhere now and all things about him become a hit! I’m glad that finally people see his true talent, he’s such natural actor.
    He’s on the top of Best Young Korean Actor right now.

    way before Nice Guy, I watched him in Tree With Deep Root. He was so amazing in just 6 episodes. I wish PDs will make the Young King Sejong drama, Song Joong Ki is the perfect actor to play the role.
