Fellow K-drama fans (all 3 of you), Werewolf Boy starring Song Joong-ki is now out and subbed on GoodDrama.net and Netflix.
It’s billed as a fantasy melo about a feral boy. You can read more about it and its wild box office successes here.
I’ve read that some American viewers say it kind of reminds them a little of Edward Scissorhands.
I totally see that. It’s a lot like Edward Scissorshands.
With the exception of a few dark and confusing moments at the beginning, the first half is totally adorable and quite funny. At the halfway mark, it starts to get darker as the fantasy/melo elements kick in and some very ugly, hateful outside forces threaten the happiness and well-being of the little family caring for the boy they believe is only a feral child, and the boy tries to protect those he loves.
This must have been stunningly lovely on the big screen. It’s a charming, poignant, bittersweet, fairy tale. Very well done. Bring your hanky.

Things to know when watching a K-drama
Where to get your fix: Sites where you can find subtitled K-dramas (and dramas from other countries, as well. I’ve watched a handful of J-dramas (Japanese) and TW (Taiwanese) dramas, but I vastly prefer the K-dramas, even though I know more Japanese – I got an A in my Japanese 101 class back in the day, when we actually lived in Japan and once I even knew both hiragana and katakana- but still K-dramas interest me vastly more).
