Teddy bears and high school uniforms for Uncontrollably Fond

Aw, don’t they look like sweet kidlets in the first stages of puppy love. Here are Uncontrollably Fond stars Suzy (Gu Family Book) and Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) dressed in school uniform, looking so young that for once the “high school phase” of the romance backstory doesn’t even really feel like too much of a leap backward, does it?

The drama features Kim Woo-bin as a cocky top star and Suzy as the documentary producer assigned to filming him, who were once youthful sweethearts until they were separated by “a heartbreaking twist of fate.” We see them as teenagers in these stills that were taken back in January (Uncontrollably Fond will be entirely pre-produced), though they’ve only been officially released now.

The two characters meet as adults in a reunion that’s both emotional and prickly, probably because of the unresolved issues that split them up in the first place. I know this kind of childhood-separation storyline is de rigueur in dramaland, but I have to say I’m particularly looking forward to it this time because I’m putting a lot of trust in writer Lee Kyung-hee. She’s probably better-known these days for the romance melo Nice Guy, as well as early-Hallyu classics like I’m Sorry, I Love You and A Love to Kill, but my favorite show of hers was actually the lesser-watched Will It Snow For Christmas. That had a really lovely teenage segment, and my pressing desire — no, need — to see them reuniting kept me going through so much.

And if the teasers are any indication, this show will have a lighter, more humorous touch than Lee’s previous shows, which suits me just fine. All the better to showcase Kim Woo-bin’s trademark god-I-wish-I-could-smack-that-smirk-off-your-face-if-only-you-weren’t-so-damned-charming appeal. It’s like his signature. He should patent that.

Uncontrollably Fond premieres in July 6.

Suzy looks very young but Kim Woo Bin... Not so much. Not really complaining though, I'm happy to see him in another drama. Here's to hoping he can pull off this new role and that the drama won't disappoint me.

Although... "Cocky top star" He does play the cocky characters pretty darn well. The top star part is dubious though.

I want to see him play a role where he's an puppy. That's a whiplash I'd love to deal with.

Oh! Is this his first time having a mutual love interest onscreen?

if you vant to see Kim Voo Bin as a puppy you should vatch Vampire Idol, he vas such a dork there and his love line vith Lee Yubi vas beyond adorable, even when she vas vearing a giant rabbit head. And it vas totally reciprocated!

I can say A Love to Kill was the worst drama that I have ever watched, I hate love triangle between brothers & the rest of story wasn't anything better especially its revenge theme.
I chose I'm sorry I love you because I love heavy melo dramas but sadly I never get the process of falling in love between the main leads to become depressed by their separation, so I prefer not starting any other of her dramas to become disappointed.

I also thought A Love to Kill was horrible. I couldn't believe I ended up finishing it and the ending sucked. I just needed to know what was going to happen but everything went bust after ep 5. I stopped watching K dramas for awhile after that bad experience, but am glad that I tried again and I learned to choose more carefully.

0

The real trouble is that ALTK had great, really intense chemistry in the beginning betveen Rain and Shin Mina...... and then vasted it completely in the last 4-5 eps by separating them and focusing on all the useless older brother angst (maybe this is heartless but I really didn't care for him at all).

I actually think her later dramas are a lot less heavy-handed and a lot slicker – Nice Guy p much tortured Maru all the time, but it vasn't the kind of maximum angstfest ve sav in MiSa/ALTK. I feel like the tone of her dramas post-2010 has been shifting avay from the AAAANGST days, even if she still likes last-minute stabbings or Trucks of Doom (I also liked Thank You)

Yep, I see what you're saying. I have to say I kind of miss her earlier excesses and shock tactics, though, even if they made me cringe. Well, actually, sometimes because they made me cringe lol--she had a way with repulsion and disgust that made her characters' angst seem so visceral and immediate (Gong Hyo-jin's character sharing food with her dog in Sang-doo, everything So Ji-sub ever did in MiSa). Nice Guy was just as dark and fucked up imo, but it felt sanitized.

0

@juniper - yes, that's exactly vhat her earlier vorks vere like- you really felt them hard, vhether you like them or not.

I feel like for early LKH dramas, I alvays reacted to vhat vas on the screen really intensely, vhile for Nice Guy I felt Song Joong-ki's pain but at the same time I vanted to sit back vith a tub of popcorn and see if Eun-gi vas going to tear Maru or Jae-hee's hair right off their heads, or if Maru vas going to pull clever corporate tricks on anyone or Jae-hee plan a neu murder. VVho knovvs hovv this vill turn out?

0

@Pogo. Yeah, me too. It's funny, because Nice Guy had some of the best acting her dramas have been graced with (SJK was lovely), but I felt disengaged from the characters in a way I hadn't before.

I don't have high hopes for this one and Lee Kyung-hee tends to be hit-or-miss for me, but maybe it will surprise me. If it doesn't work out, though, I might go back and check out Wonderful Days. The thought of a 50 episode LKH drama is pretty intriguing...I'm guessing it would be more in the vein of Thank You than her crazier stuff but who knows?

He could patent that "god-I-wish-I-could-smack-that-smirk-off-your-face-if-only-you-weren’t-so-damned-charming appeal" but then Seo In Guk (and many others whose name I can't recall right now) might try to sue him for it. :D

I so hope this drama works and I will definitely be watching it. But I think part of his charm was that he was never the main lead, and so I wanted him to get the girl (or the guy- School 2013 anyone). I wonder if I would like him as the hero!

Oh I want him to come on Running Man to promote this. It has been too long since he has been there.

IMO the other two dramas may have better cast in acting department & better plot but UF has suzy's huge popularity in Korea, LKH, pre-producing & also hype to benefit it too, so I don't think this one will be a flop.

Yeah there is a difference in the box office drawing abilities of a CF model and an actress with skills as well as star power.

Even Song Hye Kyo's last movie which is considered a flop, did 5 times as many admissions as Suzy's big budget flop movie but you got people trying to drag her too? lol.

Arguing what drama seems to be better is useless anyway since we all know better dramas don't infallibly equate with better ratings, sadly. I have the lowest possible interest in this drama out of all the newer ones, but I can't say I'll be surprised if it does well even if it does end up being weak.

I'm still very hesitant about this drama. I'm ok with Suzy, and I love Kim Woo Bin, but...I don't know. I'm just very cautious with my expectations right now.

Maybe its because the past-romance storyline bores me, or the last teaser I saw was pretty stale... it's just not exciting me. Anyway, low expectations. Hope everything will turn out ok. I'd loove to be wrong.

It actually is completely pre-produced. Thats why its been in the media for so long. Ugh, I remember when I first heard about Descendants of the Sun... and then when it started airing... I was like 'REALLY? I waited this long?'

I still can't wrap my head around Suzy portraying a ''working professional", and an 'experienced PD" at that... It might be because of the age thing: In my head, she's still a kid in real life and a baby in the actual K-pop world, even though she's 21 and technically a legal adult, and it's already been 6 years since miss A's debut....

Suzy & Woobin look good together in pictures above. I can feel the chemistry between them. It's funny how the previous 3 teaser videos gave me zero chemistry, but I can feel it through those pictures.

Anyway.. this:
"Kim Woo-bin’s trademark god-I-wish-I-could-smack-that-smirk-off-your-face-if-only-you-weren’t-so-damned-charming appeal."
+1000000
I know that some people keep saying Woobin isn't that handsome and he looks like an alien or dinosaur. Well, Woobin himself agree that his face resembles a dinosaur. lol
To me, his face is uniquely gorgeous. Not a conventional handsome type like Lee Minho or Wonbin which general public prefer more, but he is definitely charming and gorgeous.
Not to mention his 188cm height. Tall men always have plusss point in my eyes. Haha.

About Suzy & Woobin to appear in Running Man, yesss please.. a BIG YES!
Both of them have already appeared many times and they're sooo hilarious.

Sometimes actors / actresses from other channel's dramas appear on that variety show.
Suzy & Woobin doesn't need to promote UF during that show. They could just appear to enjoy the game.
SBS will never say no to the two's immerse popularity.
And KBS know that RM is so popular overseas esp China, it's a win-win solution for both channels.

Suzy & Woobin could even appear separately after the drama finish airing. Not a problem for me.

As a loyal fan of RM like me, don't you wish those two to comeback to the show? :D

Maybe because I'm fairly neutral on the two leads I'm barely moved by most of the promo material. I just hope this is a decent drama, really trying to manage my expectations so I'm not too disappointed but can still enjoy it reasonably if it allows me to.

KBS is really hyping it up so I really hope it's good for the sake of everyone involved. It would be sad if it flopped on all fronts.
