A Werewolf Boy (Korean film)
I never liked the “Twilight Saga” movie franchise; I thought it was a story made to channel ‘teen’ fantasies rather than to really develop a compelling storyline. But like it or …

When it comes to South Korean action thrillers, there are few who can match director (sometimes actor/stuntman) Ryoo Seung-Wan. The man knows how to make his action films with style, intense and even …

Woochi: The Demon Slayer (2009)
