Hello everyone! Anyone just finished Uncontrollably Fond here? I've anticipated this drama since few months ago and I impatiently watched first episodes without reading the synopsis first (actually I almost never read the synopsis before start any drama, because I don't like spoiler LOL).
Tbh, Suzy is my bias from Miss A and I also like Kim Woo Bin since his appearance in The Heirs drama.
Here's short review about this drama ^_^
UNCONTROLLABLY FOND (2016)
Uncontrollably Fond (Hangul: 함부로 애틋하게) is a South Korean television series starring Kim Woo-bin and Bae Suzy. It airs every Wednesdays and Thursdays on KBS2 at 21:55 from July 6 to September 8, 2016.
Shin Joon-young (Kim Woo-bin) and No Eul (Bae Suzy) were a couple who were separated during their teenage years due to an ill-fated relationship, but later meet each other in life. Shin Joon-young is now a top actor-singer while No Eul is a documentary producer.
No Eul had a tough childhood; her father died in a hit-and-run prompting No Eul to quit school and make a living for her and her brother. Shin Joon-young, on the other hand, had his life planned out for him. His mother wanted him to become a prosecutor; to follow the footsteps of his estranged father, but an awful incident caused him to quit law school and become a singer-actor. The two reunite when No Eul is tasked to film Shin Joon-young's documentary. Joon-young initially gives No Eul a miserable time before finally agreeing to do the documentary and even plans to win her heart back.

Joon Young & Noh Eul in the present
Guys, I'm not going to discourage you but unfortunately, I don't like this drama..
The duration of this drama was too long and the plot was too dragging. Whole episodes of Uncontrollably Fond was filled with Joon Young & Noh Eul playing back and forth and that's made me really bored and upset :/
Personally I don't recommend this drama, because:
1. Basically I prefer comedy romantic drama.
2. There's no hidden card in this drama, everything has revealed in the early episodes.
3. Joon Young's decision to keep his sickness till the end makes everything become complicated and he ends up hurting Noh Eul repetitively. That's not nice IMHO.
Rating: 6,5 / 10
But, because Joon Young loves his mom so much, and he's been a good boy. I'm giving final rating 7/10. The only thing that I love most about this drama is Joon Young's relationship with his mother. Though his mother seemed hated and ignored Joon Young much, but Joon Young never hate her back until the end :')
Ah, not forget to mention that their OST is nice! My favorite songs are "Ring My Bell" by Suzy and 틀린그림찾기 by 키썸/슬옹 :)
Sooo... What do you think about this drama?
Thanks for reading! :)
