Kim Woo-bin rocks out for Uncontrollably Fond

Kim Woo-bin is going to play a rock star in this drama? I don’t know why, but that seems really odd to me. I guess when they described his character as a top star, I automatically pictured him playing an actor. But there he is, with a guitar, looking like he’s supposed to be a singer. I can’t be the only one who finds this strange. I mean, I like Kim Woo-bin, but he doesn’t seem like a musician at all, not even a little. Criminal mastermind, sure. Sensitive boy with guitar, not so much. Maybe I just need some time to adjust and wrap my head around it?

The newest teaser for KBS’s upcoming romance melodrama Uncontrollably Fond features Kim Woo-bin as top star Shin Joon-young in the middle of a concert, while Suzy, playing documentary PD No-eul, continues to get footage for her project about his life. The drama is about their painful separation in youth and their reunion much later, when he’s become a global star and she’s a lowly television producer assigned to make a documentary about him.

As Suzy watches the concert from the sidelines, she starts to watch Kim Woo-bin instead of looking at her camera, and as he smiles at her, someone warns her in voiceover, “Don’t fall for Joon-young hyung, noona.” I think it’s a little late for that.

Uncontrollably Fond airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays and premieres July 6.

This drama is giving me the "Entertainer's" vibe with less complicated romance storyline tbh......based on the second teaser I am not so sure whether I will like this drama or not...Kim woo bin as a musician really is odd & strange but I will still give it a try before I judged it too much....

More than entertainer,

it is giving me the feels of this chinese movie..

I am so sure its a remake of that..

I can 't recall the name of the movie..but essentially the plot is..

Leads meet up while working at a bar, hero wants to become a singer and heroine wants to become a manager basically.. they start going out..love happens.. and for reason he has to go to london for music classes.. while he earns, spends time on phone with her and does his classess.. she worries that he is not focusing and spending too much time thinking about her.. so she breaks up giving some silly reason as she has moved on..

He becomes bitteer, comes back,becomes a super successful singer. Some misunderrstandings and his current manager refuses to work with him so they bring in another new manager ( more like..ex manager thinks she can turn anyone into a star and would take on a rookie..and he thinks he is a star)..anyways..new manager comes in..and its his ex girlfriend..

Its comedy thereon.. he tries to make her jealous, taunts her..does all of that.. very clearly still in love with her..and so is she..

and eventually love rekindles..

Darn!..i just can't remember the name of the movie

I think I would laught my stomach out if his life is actually based on Jung Joonyoung.
He lives a fancy and free life, and I think its perfectly match for a top rock star.
But I still can't imagine Kim Woobin as a singer, it's weird seeing him on stage.

It's really possible that his char is based on Jung Joon Young now that i see it. He truly lives the rock-and-roll way of life to bits lol

No matter how bad this may or may not turn out, if garbage like Heirs and DOTS had great ratings and became international hits, so can this drama especially with this writer who loves to throw everything but the kitchen sink in terms of makjang love stories in her dramas.

As for the teaser, lmaoo. Those sunglasses while performing in a dimly lit venue, and that lazy hand synching. Thanks for the laugh.

Though I'm agree that Heirs is such a garbage, but I think DOTS is not that garbage level yet. Though it's sure overrated in some aspects (Signal - I watched it and acknowledge it's better than DOTS) , but at least DOTS' leads aren't as useless and as annoying as Heirs' leads. Yoo Sijin is faaaaar more capable than Kim Tan, so does Kang Moyeon is written better than Cha Eunsang. The story and plot of DOTS also > Heirs.

LOL..No. They're both terrible, at least Heirs was entertaining where you could make fun of the ridiculousness while watching. DOTS was sixteen hours of SJK being hyper aware he looks like a eighteen year old, so he would amp up the macho a little too much, and the other half of the time was him and SHK making eyes at each other with random fight scenes interspersed.

I'm convinced half the reason DOTS was so hyped was because of the fact it was shot overseas in a really scenic location adding to the epic value of a drama about soldiers. If that shit plotline was reworked to take place somewhere in Korea, it wouldn't have been thissss overly estimated in value. If anything, the cinematographer and location scout deserve the most praise lol.

Is he going to drop that smile and start bashing someone in the head with his guitar? I'd watch THAT drama

Painful separation, fatal reunion?

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there's this angry young boy
No stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Bashing my head with his guitar
Killing me softly with his song
Tearing my whole life, au revoir
Killing me softly with his song

It's really surprising for me that when I read comments on naver about this drama most of them are about suzy's beauty and it seems they have forgotten this is a drama with both male and female lead! I wanted to know k-netizen's ideas about KWB & his acting but rarely about him on top 100 comments! I should confess it was the first time that I see female lead is in more attention than her male co-star, anyway I will try once again in future.

Suzy is well liked, and even though her acting lacks, they love some eye candy in screen, since KWB looks are divided to some people, they talk about Suzy.

See the 2nd teaser and 3rd teaser, this drama sounds boring with crappy acting skills. And I don't think Bea Suzy super pretty like K-Netizen told. She just like IU.
3rd teaser too short, I don't know what happens with it.
And that is not melodrama. Just like Dots, they're romcom (again) with little "drama" (makjang)
I looking forward to W and Wanted. Trailer of Wanted really strong.

For a pre-produced melo about former lovers turned huge star/ lowly PD, the sparks are uncontrollably missing. I want charisma in a Rockstar with devil may care attitude and some major fireworks when these two come together on screen. The tone is rather on the melancholy and the sparks aren't there. I didn't realize before, while Kim Woo Bin certainly shines in certain roles, he lacks that extra screen presence you need and acting may just be average. I may be wrong, lets see. My heart just sank about this show, this might turn out to be another Entertainer from the looks of it.

And now that you mention it, gf, I guess I always did picture Kim Woo-bin being a top star actor, rather than actual rock star, singer, so this is kinda... off. Let's hope he pulls it off, though.

Teaser wise, the second one really piqued my interest in comparison to this one. Idk, I still don't really ship it, but we'll see.

I think that I am having trouble seeing him as a rock star because of the clip and his disconnectedness to the things going on around him. He looks so peaceful and relaxed, contentedly strumming away while things are exploding on stage and fans are gyrating to the beat, waving their light wands with uber-joy. His energy doesn't match the energy of the crowd.

Start from the cheesy lines at the 1st teaser, Suzy's acting at the 2nd one.. and now Woobin's awkwardness.
I like Kim Woobin ALOT but the way he played guitar seemed super awkward for a rock star.

I see a lot of people comparing this to DOTS, but the things that made DOTS a huge success aren't here. First of all, all leads were actors with acting training and years of experience whose acting performances were appreciated by the public even before DOTS happened. I don't think I have to tell you how much knetz hate idol-actors.

Secondly, there was no love triangle which knetz abhor. Thirdly, the main idea was the army which koreans respect more than anything. Throw in an actor who just got out of one of the harshest military trainings (which again, will make koreans worship you) and a writer that as much as I-fans hate, is very much loved in Korea and lots of money for overseas filming and great cinematography and you have your success.

Having said that, this drama could be a huge success too, no one knows what might happen, but if does turn out successful, it won't be because it was similar to DOTS and as for shallow reasons, well, KWB is not exactly considered the prettiest of them all in Korea, so the comments might point out how Suzy deserves a prettier lead rather than praise them together.

Very pleased ! Looking forward to this drama the most ! Frankly this year there too much wannabe returning to the screens with their bad acting ! Dots is the first exemple , what a daube , one of the most sucking couple it was !

Anyways Suzy and woobin will save this year ! What a refreshing couple ! Youngs with great acting skills and charisma ! Daebak !

One a side note i can see all the jealous pumpkins are working hard in the comment section as usual with their insecurity splashed in every UF news !
