‘Werewolf Boy’ gets alternate ending
To thank the fans for chalking up six million views, “A Werewolf Boy” director has announced his decision to screen an alternate ending version in cinemas next month.
Jo Sung-hee, who made the current hit melodrama, told “SBS E! Entertainment News” that the modified film will contain some deleted scenes as well as a different ending. “I’m aware that a lot of male viewers didn’t like the ending,” said Jo. “It actually wasn’t what we intended, so it’ll be a good chance to air the different one.”
Without giving too much away, Jo said female lead Park Bo-young plays a bigger role in the alternate finale.
Another character to receive more attention will be the bad boy Ji-tae, played by actor Yoo Yeon-seok.
“You know he plays the role so well, but the thing is Ji-tae may be the most pitiable character in the whole film.”
Jo said the December release will contain moments from Ji-tae’s childhood as well as focusing in on the neighborhood in which the plot unfolds. Just days earlier, Song Joong-ki, who plays the werewolf, had let it slip at a press conference that Jo may release an alternate version when the film became the most-watched Korean melodrama.
