‘Werewolf Boy’ the top melodrama


Park Bo-young and Song Joong-ki

Just two weeks after release, “A Werewolf Boy” has become the most-watched Korean melodrama to date.

CJ Entertainment announced that as of 3 p.m. Thursday, the film exceeded 4.12 million views, passing “Architecture 101,” also released this year.

Despite the fact that both films exceeded the 4-million mark, “A Werewolf Boy” got there a lot faster: just 16 days. It took “Architecture 101” 53 days to reach 4,107,078 views.

On Wednesday alone, the fantasy melodrama starring heartthrob Song Joong-ki and 22-year-old actress Park Bo-young pulled in 157,784 viewers.

It has also become the ninth Korean movie this year draw 4 million viewers. Others are “Nameless Gangster,” “All About My Wife,” “Yeongasi,” “The Thieves,” “Gone with the Wind” and “Gwanghae.”

Last week, the on-screen couple uploaded a picture of them celebrating Pepero Day (a day for giving out chocolate coated biscuit sticks).

Earlier the couple said their target was to hit the 8 million mark.
