Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 1

Uncontrollably Fond has been one of the more buzzed-about projects of the year, and it finally premiered—to a strong start, upending the Wednesday-Thursday pecking order and claiming the top spot. (It grabbed 12.5% ratings, while Wanted drew 7.0% and Lucky Romance dropped to 6.6%.)

I went into Uncontrollably Fond with cautious optimism, not wanting to expect too much on one hand, and also not wanting the hype to stir that perverse contrarian streak inside, where you want anything that’s overhyped to fail. (Some things that are hyped are good! We can’t let other people’s expectations ruin our enjoyment of things! Don’t let them win!) Perhaps it helped to consciously avoid the buzz, because I was able to go in with a pretty clean slate, and found this premiere engaging and surprisingly moving. Also curiosity-stoking. Next episode, please! *holds out hand expectantly*

But fine, first let’s get to this one:

 
EPISODE 1 RECAP

In an empty church, a young couple grips hands tightly, wearing solemn faces. The groom starts to recites his wedding vows and promises never to let his wife’s hand go from this moment on.

Then he turns to face her, cupping her face tenderly in his hands.

Before he can seal the vow with a kiss, the doors of the church burst open, and gangsters pour inside. The leader accuses the groom of stealing his hyungnim’s woman—the groom counters that she was his woman from the start—and then orders his thugs to kill him.

The ensuing fight puts the groom at a grave disadvantage, and he’s soon bloody and battered despite doing his best to fight them off. It doesn’t look good…

His bride’s scream supplies the groom with renewed energy—he fights better and faster now, dodging attacks and delivering blows. A blow to the head doesn’t even slow him down, and he fights on.

Then the boss takes out a gun and shoots him—right in the heart.

The groom stands still in shock as he registers his wound. A tear falls from his eye.

He steps toward his bride, and bang! He’s shot again. But that doesn’t faze him, and neither does the next gunshot. By the time he snatches the gun away from the gangster, everyone looks puzzled.

“I don’t want to die,” the groom says matter-of-factly. And behind the cameras, the crew gapes: They’re on a drama set, the groom is actor SHIN JOON-YOUNG (Kim Woo-bin), and this is the big climactic finale.

The director points out that his death was written in from the start, but Joon-young says he changed his mind: “I can’t die this way, director.” He requests a script change and walks off.

Joon-young’s team is at their wits’ end, with the scriptwriter refusing to edit the ending. The finale airs tonight and they’re in danger of missing the broadcast; rumors of the discord have hit the internet and Joon-young is taking a netizen beating for his arrogance.

But things become clearer when Joon-young shows up at a hospital and speaks solemnly to his doctor, unable to wrap his head around the diagnosis he’d been given. How can he be so healthy and fit and be dying of an incurable disease that gives him less than a year to live? (What! Nobody told me we were in a terminal illness drama. My heart is not ready for this.)

He asks if the doctor could have mistaken his condition, or confused him for his fated-to-die drama character, but the doctor remains assured of his diagnosis. Joon-young asks with a touch of defiance, “What if I say I won’t die? How can you know when I’ll die? What if I refuse to die, then what?”

As he sits in his car afterward, Joon-young’s agency president pleads with him to just die—the drama has filmed everything else, and if he would just agree to die, everything would wrap up smoothly. His eyes fill with angry tears, not wanting to give in even to this fictional death.

On to a rainy field at nighttime, where a woman sets up a camera while talking to a friend on the phone, who sobs loudly into her ear. She’s NOH EUL (Suzy), and she’s stunned silent when her friend wails, “Shin Joon-young died!”

And then her friend clarifies that he died in the drama’s finale, and Eul relaxes.

Just then, Eul spots a truck pulling up in the rain and gets down low to the ground, her camera recording as several men do something with large metal barrels. Suddenly, her camera gets shoved aside as one of the men glares down at her threateningly. Whoops, caught.

Eul ends up locked up in a corporate conference room, and bangs on the door loudly until a middle-aged executive joins her inside. She pegs him (and his company) as a routine offender of illegal wastewater dumping, a charge he refutes readily. He’s identified her as a producer and returns her confiscated camera to her—with its memory wiped, of course.

She’s not fussed, though, saying cheerfully that she has plenty of footage already, from the other nights his company dumped their waste. The man’s composure flags, and he asks what she wants, ready to make a deal. Eul is offended when he pushes a thick envelope of money at her, yelling that he dares to think he can cover the truth with money.

But the next thing you know, Eul is depositing the cash into an ATM (minus one bill, which she keeps for herself). She calls her loan shark, “Grim Reaper,” to let him know of this payment. (She still owes roughly 27,000 dollars.)

That night, Joon-young gets a call from his attorney about his request to track a certain woman down. Asked how much detail he would like to know about her, Joon-young replies that he wants to know where she lives, what she does, whether she went to university, whether she’s married. His face darkens a little as he adds, “And if she’s married, what her husband does.”

And yet, he doesn’t want her knowing he was looking her up—nor does he even intend to meet her.

Eul walks home that night, and comes upon a donation bin, where she slips the last bill she’d kept. She looks up at a large screen mounted on the side of a building, her eyes wistful at the sight of Joon-young’s face in an advertisement.

Morning finds Joon-young in his huge, fancy mansion, where he’s awoken by his extremely well-behaved dog. The dog turns up its nose at the bowl of dog food he pours out, and Joon-young tells him that “after I’m gone” the dog will probably go to his manager hyung, who won’t feed him fancy food or do everything Joon-young does.

Joon-young cooks a pot of ramyun and takes a bite, then puts down his chopsticks and sighs that he got sick because he ate ramyun all the time instead of rice.

Eul tries to do chores and sweet-talk her landlady into not raising her rent, but the ajumma refuses to budge. Eul sighs that she has nowhere else to go.

Joon-young sits in his car outside a restaurant and watches (wistfully, perhaps) a table of customers and the ajumma who waits on them. He heads inside with his face covered up by a huge hood and sunglasses and orders a hundred bowls of the restaurant’s specialty, spicy beef soup.

She informs him coldly that she won’t sell soup to him, which makes Joon-young insist louder and louder that he wants some. Finally he shoves aside the hood and takes off the glasses, continuing to insist as the other diners recognize him and start filming him on their phones.

An ajusshi jumps in to smooth things over, and Ajumma barks at him to sprinkle salt after Joon-young leaves, like he’s some kind of bad energy needing cleansing. Joon-young hands over a card to the ajusshi asking him to approve his hundred bowls of soup, then pauses to ask a table of diners for just one spoonful.

Eul lays out on her rooftop platform, looking up at the sky and sighing over her nearly empty bank account, when she has to feed, clothe, and educate her younger brother.

Then she gets a snappish email from the production company where she works, telling her not to come in anymore: “We don’t need trash like you at our company.” Ouch.

After Joon-young leaves the restaurant, Ajusshi scolds Ajumma for being so harsh—to her very own son. Whoa. That’s some mother-son baggage we’ve got going on here. Ajusshi tells her that celebrities these days are worlds apart from entertainers of the past (considered vulgar professions), and that Joon-young makes much more money than he would as a prosecutor or judge (which is what she wanted for him). He argues that she can’t just ignore or look down on Joon-young, and if she keeps this up, her son may turn his back on her. Mom, however, is unmoved.

Joon-young returns home and declares today another failure, sitting with more ramyun as he asks his dog if he should just tell Mom he’s going to die soon. At least then she’d let him eat her soup.

His manager hyung Gook-young comes in to complain that he’s dropped projects that are extremely lucrative, and reminds him that his refusal to die in the drama is still a fresh blot on his image. Joon-young’s voice sharpens as he reminds Gook-young that he did die, as they wanted, and warns, “From now on I won’t do anything I don’t want to do.”

Eul bursts into a meeting at her production company job, armed with specialty drinks and a sickening amount of aegyo, pouring on the charm. Her boss, the company CEO, barks at her that she’s been fired, but Eul breezes right past that, telling them of a great scoop she’s working on.

Her sunbae interrupts, charging her with taking hush money while working on a number of past stories that she then dropped. The CEO asks derisively, “Don’t you even have a conscience?” and orders her out.

That knocks her down a bit, but Eul takes a moment and comes back as sunny as ever, reminding her CEO and sunbae of all the payoffs they’ve taken—even bigger sums for even bigger corruption scandals. They fidget uncomfortably, but cling to their righteous outrage as she pleads for one more chance.

Eul adds cheerfully (and possibly shoots herself in the foot) that this time she’ll do a really good job… of not getting caught, like her CEO and sunbae managed.

So it’s no wonder that the next time we see Eul, she’s drunk and babbling, not very repentant over taking bribes; rather, she feels unjustly punished when everyone else got off scot-free. She mutters about everybody in the world being bad, just as she’s joined by a stern-faced man, CHOI JI-TAE (Im Joo-hwan), who shakes his head at her. She wails that it’s unfair to be the only one fired, but upright and principled Ji-tae says it’s good that she got caught now, before becoming even more corrupted.

Ji-tae declines to drink with Eul tonight, and even the waitress unni clucks disapprovingly, asking what her dead parents would think to see her like this. Ji-tae tells Eul to reflect on her wrongs tonight and leaves.

Eul gets dramatic and declares that she’ll do just that, and then die. She’s making such a ruckus that a nearby diner calls out for her to die later, because he’s going to die over his dinner first. Manager Gook-young is at that table, trying to soothe ruffled feathers with the drunk PD, who’s fuming over Joon-young reneging on his contract.

At that name, Eul listens in with interest, while Gook-young speaks up in defense of Joon-young. He argues that they ponied up the contract breach fees, but the PD wails that it hardly compensates—not after how hard they worked to shoot that documentary about Joon-young.

Ah, and a light bulb goes off for Eul.

Drunk PD has to be assisted out of the restaurant, and Eul approaches the group outside to ask, “Shall I try persuading him?” She knows which documentary they were working on and explains that she can convince Joon-young to do the project.

They dismiss her confidence as mere bravado, but she makes a proposal: If she succeeds, they hire her. She swears to work honestly this time, without taking any bribes.

At a bit of a distance, Ji-tae hears the exchange, not having left yet.

Over at another lavish mansion, a girl reads a blog post and gets offended on behalf of “our Joon-young” at the gossip-mongering. She’s CHOI HARU, avid fangirl and Ji-tae’s younger sister. Ah, so the righteous oppa is super-rich. Haru’s father asks if she loves Joon-young that much, and the girl practically hugs herself and begs to marry him.

Dad is a former prosecutor and now assemblyman (Yoo Oh-sung), and his wife nags him not to work so hard. Assemblyman Choi sends the housekeeper out for privacy, and Mom thinks he’s going to scold her for nagging, only to have him hug her warmly. He thanks her for being his wife, and she smiles happily.

Meanwhile, Joon-young’s mother preps ingredients at her restaurant, and a headline from a newspaper she’s been using as placemat catches her eye: It’s Assemblyman Choi. She looks down at his picture with sad eyes and holds hand to heart, and uh, is this going where I think it’s going?

The sound of breaking glass draws Mom out of her thoughts, and she finds Restaurant Ajusshi with a collection of side dishes and ingredients. Ajusshi is a terrible liar and insists that all this food is totally not for Joon-young; it’s for his son’s friend. (Ah, Restaurant Ajusshi is manager Gook-young’s father. This premiere has too many characters!)

Then Ajusshi gets indignant, asking why it matters if he did give food to Joon-young, who has picky taste and only ever eats ramyun and kimbap. He wonders how Mom can be so cold, and all she says in return is “Then you be Joon-young’s mom.”

Eul shows up at Joon-young’s front door, and the sight of her face in the monitor makes him gape in surprise, or maybe even shock. Eul declares that she’s not a crazy person or rabid fan, calling herself a nice, law-abiding citizen.

Manager Gook-young recognizes her and is surprised that she actually came; he explains to Joon-young how she claimed she would persuade Joon-young to do the documentary.

Gook-young says she seemed slightly crazy, but Eul replies that the manager ought to be on her side, reminding him that he had a lot of complaints about the star too. She lists his complaints, and Gook-young swears to Joon-young that he never said those things.

All the while, Joon-young just stares fiercely at the monitor. When she says he can chase her away if he deems her crazy, he interrupts and says, “I’ll chase you away now,” and shuts off the monitor.

Eul rings his doorbell repeatedly, but Joon-young’s already walking away. She turns to go… and then spies the security camera mounted in the entryway.

So when Joon-young flips to the security camera channel on his TV, he spots Eul standing in front of his door, holding a notebook up to the camera. She flips through it, Love, Actually-style: “I know you’re surprised. Please take your time continuing what you were doing. If you change your mind, please call me. Until you open the door, I’ll be waiting here quietly. ^^ ♥”

So Joon-young goes about his business, bathing his dog (named Pororo, which is absurd and adorable) and watching TV. All the while, Eul sits outside in the cold, even when it begins to snow. But when she calls her brother and suspects he’s skipping meals, she finally gets up to go—and leaves a tiny snowman in her stead, with the note: “I will be back.” Joon-young sees it in the camera monitor late that night.

In the morning, he packs up his outdoor gear, gets in one of his many fancy cars, and pulls out of his driveway… and the second his gate swings open, Eul dashes inside and blocks his car. He screeches to a stop, and she gets right in and wishes him good morning. He’s obviously uncomfortable with her presence, but she chatters along and says that although she expects that he’ll be feeling annoyed and confused, her business is urgent.

Joon-young gives her three seconds to get out of the car, which she blithely ignores, and then he peels out at high speed. He drives recklessly, swerving violently through traffic, giving Eul palpitations. But when he gives her the opportunity to get out at a red light, she declines, and prepares a firm grip on the car.

He shoots off into traffic once more, and swerves into the opposite lane to pass a car—right into the path of an oncoming truck. He swerves out of the way in the nick of time, but it’s too much for Eul, and she’s forced to vomit at the side of the road.

Joon-young tosses a few bills at her side and tells her that’ll cover her treatment, adding that they ought not see each other again. He gets back in the car and drives off.

Eul lies down in the road right then and there, looking up at the snowy sky, tears slipping from her eyes.

Joon-young drives on as the snow flurries grow stronger, and turns on the radio to a news announcement of an accident: A truck slipped on the road and hit a twentysomething woman, on the very road he’s traveling now. Joon-young recalls passing by an ambulance a short time ago and can’t shake his unease as the woman’s injuries are described as severe.

He makes a U-turn and heads back to the spot where he’d pulled over, but finds no sign of Eul.

Joon-young resumes his drive, and takes a call from his attorney: He’s located that woman. Joon-young replies, “So have I.”

He pulls over the car, and looks off in the distance: A woman trudges along the side of the road, wobbling unsteadily on her feet. He drives closer and runs up to Eul, staring down at her intently.

She stares, too, then breaks into a smile. “Have you changed your mind?” she asks. “Is that why you came back?” She explains that she’s not doing all this just to score a job for herself. She says the documentary will do a lot to improve his rude image, and earn money…

He cuts her off, speaking in banmal: “Don’t you know me?” She replies that everybody knows who he is, but he cuts her off again, saying her name with intensity: “Noh Eul. Don’t you know me?!”

“I know you,” she answers, dropping to banmal. “You son of a bitch.”

 
COMMENTS

Ah, interesting. Although I do my best not to let background knowledge of a show (from promos and teasers) affect how I watch the actual show itself, I didn’t except for Uncontrollably Fond to dive right in to the present day without some sort of flashback or reference to the past, because we were told ages ago that they were first loves who somehow got separated, and reunite again as adults. But the episode was fairly withholding about background information, and I accepted the plot as the show presented it, wondering when we’d be given more clues. And things kept unfolding, and Joon-young betrayed nothing about possibly knowing Eul, and Eul kept speaking to Joon-young in polite speech, as though he were a stranger.

It gave the episode a dose of tension and energy that I wasn’t expected, but really appreciated. It kept me on the edge of my seat, wanting for somebody to break first, to acknowledge each other, to fill us in on what must be pretty epic backstory.

I suppose the wait had the same effect on the characters as well, because Joon-young kept feigning ignorance until it came out in an angry outburst, and her answer was a lot stronger than her behavior leading up to that point would have suggested. So now I’m dying to know what happened, which means that as a premiere, it did its job. Curiosity piqued, mission accomplished, I’ll be back tomorrow.

I was afraid that Joon-young’s mix of charm and aggression would make me hate the character—and more to the point, hate Kim Woo-bin, after losing a lot of affection for him post-Heirs. (So charming, but so aggravating!) But Joon-young was a lot more than some spoiled, rich move star, and I found myself going absolutely all-in with him and his painful loneliness. As soon as the show told me he was dying (how can the show kill him), it shifted everything; what seemed like annoyingly smug flirting in the promos now makes sense with a ticking clock, and it pulls strings in the heart that I wasn’t expecting to be pulled.

I suspect that similar layers are going on with Eul’s character, but those weren’t played out as much—or perhaps they were, but you just can’t compete with Dying Hero. In any case, I like that she’s cheerful to an almost offensive degree; she’s not just cheerful, she’s cheerful as defense mechanism, maybe even sometimes as offense mechanism. She’s shameless and willfully cheerful, so much so that it makes her tone-deaf, yet that hints at more stuff going on beneath the surface and I’m curious to know what that is.

More than anything, I’m glad and relieved to see writer Lee Kyung-hee back with moody, melancholy romance; I am such a fan of some of her work, but not all of it, and I didn’t know which style we’d get. Her intense, classic melodramas (I’m Sorry, I Love You; A Love to Kill) were what made her name (as well as the flashier Nice Guy), but I much prefer her lighter sentimental melos, like Will It Snow For Christmas and Thank You. I find the romantic, pensive touch of this drama a refreshing change of pace, and also appreciate that when it occasionally lightens up, it doesn’t turn into a different kind of drama by pouring on the comedy. So far the show is giving me the sense of a sentimental, bittersweet romance with a strong current of emotion balanced by a dash of lightness, and that speaks to me. A lot.

What a great first episode. I wasn't even sure I was going to watch this show. It did what so many premiers fail to do, make me care about that charecters right away. I love how Yoon-youngs comes across as a diva before the viewers know the source or the context of his refusal to die in the film. I would normally hate the terminal illness trop, but here, for this storyline I think it'll work.

I didn't love the first ep as you did but I did love the chemistry was was clearly there with our main couple. After the last scene with them I have no idea why people would be so negative. The actors they are doing great so far especially when there were so many characters we were introduced to.

yeah tbh the chemistry is the main draw. it would have fallen apart immediately if it felt awkward or flat between them. i also kinda wish ppl wouldnt insult suzy's acting so intensely. she's not that bad holy smacks? for the amnt of vitriol i see her get here and elsewhere tbh. honestly i can only think of 2 actresses whose acting i disliked so much i am unhappy anytime i hear them casted. i wont mention theme cuz its irrelevant but basically just, let suzy live haha.

I actually like the first episode too!
I never intentionally read the summary of any kdrama before I watch it (I hate spoiler that much, lol), so I didn't expect anything. This first episode surprised me, so I would totally continue watching it~

Indeed. I neither follow this drama's articles nor watching the trailers. I just saw suzy's mv for this ost. But wow, im surprised that i enjoy watching the 1st episode despite of so many negative comments here and there. Everything happens for a reason and im so ready to dig into their past stories..

woozy is one good looking screen couple.
Alright, suzy is either a good actress nor bad, she's doing fine. Sometimes her eyes didnt tell what it supposed to say but not bad. There are a bunch of bad actreas out there.
Woobin is handsome as always. His sexy voice is the best part of his. Haha..

Cant wait for ep 2.

Woozy, lets hater sit and stare.

It maybe silly to say, but I never liked Suzy and I thought her acting left so much to desire. But after Lee Min Ho and her started dating, she is growing on me and I have come to like her and support her as a fan. I believe she has improved her acting. And I think an actor's job gives them a long journey and they always have this capacity to become better and bring out the best in themselves. Suzy is a charismatic actress and I think she is doing a good job so far in this drama. :))

I really liked this premiere. I wasn't thrilled during the first 20 minutes with the presence of some k-dramas clichés (terminal illness, birth secret and a basket full of characters all somehow related to each other). However, the plot and the way the characters are written and portrayed changed that, so I'm looking forward to it.

DOTS? Who are you kidding? You can't just simply compare two different dramas that have completely different genres! DOTS was a drama that dealt with situations like war and romance within it. This drama is simply just a first love romance drama. Instead you should see it as the drama, Uncontrollably Fond, not DOTS.

while there are some of the usual kdrama tropes, i liked this for the most part. even tho it felt a bit slow at times. i'm really wary and not a fan of the Terminal Illness trope. and in this case i'm alrdy rolling my eyes which shouldnt be my reaction! i did feel joon young's pain tho, so good on woo bin for that. i like woo bin alot, but suzy didnt disappoint me either. she's not the strongest actress but she's not so weak that she drags it down. plusas much as i like woo bin he's not like top tier acting level either. he gets by alot on his natural charisma/charm. but his range lbr, isnt stellar. but for this he's a great fit.
I REALLY hope the next ep isnt only flashback stuff, and that the illness plot is resolved fairly quickly. i feel like there is plenty of drama inherent in the premise and our characters lives without TRAGIC IMPENDING DEATH. (just a year to live? reallyyyy tho?)
since its fully pre produced it should at least be, if nothing else, consistent. cautiously hopeful!

Yeah, I know flashbacks are kinda essential to their story since they met in school...but I don't want them dragging down the relaxed pace the show already seems to have.

As far as the tropes go, I'm just relieved she was only pretending to have forgotten him and that she didn't actually have amnesia. Between the terminal illness, tragic separation, rich man/working girl dynamic, and estranged/dead parents, amnesia would've made my eyes roll out of my head.

The terminal illness thing does made his character a lot more sympathetic than he would be without it though, so it's kinda necessary.

yeah i see why they chose terminal illness as a catalyst. its a good one. my worry is them sticking with it to the bitter end lol. it puts a weird pressure on the coupling, and makes it feel less organic. tho im sure he has no intention of telling her any time soon.
and lol yep they hit all the buttons they could in one ep. almost. but i do like that Suzy isnt a candy. she's clearly struggling and putting up a facade. but she has one career in mind and a passion. plus she's not squeaky clean or Pure of Heart. i appreciate that alot. she seems alot more real than the usual heroine in this kind of set up. and Woo Bin's chara is blessedly not a chaebol. he worked for all that absurd wealth even if it was a more glam job like acting (or music). its still work! (that takes skill). So yeah im good on that count so far. could reallyyyy do without the hidden chaebol (secondary lead?) and the possible birth secret. also kinda hope we find out wtf wb's drama mom's problem is cuz she's being ridiculous if this is rly just about him being an actor like...cmon now. (im sure there is some Deep Tragic reason from his past that makes her so insistent on him being a prosecutor but like even so..?)
I'm still into it tho, warts and all. Lucky Romance had a troubled start but I liked it enough to keep going and now I LOVE it. here's hoping tihs goes down a similar road? (altho tbf RJY and HJE are both far stronger actors XD)

So far I do like this drama...the 1st episode didn't really have much excitement except for the ending but I will continue to watch it and see how the story progresses. I always like to watch a few episodes before I judge a drama because there's plenty of drama that gets interesting when we know the back story. One thing forsure is the two main leads have great chemistry. Hopefully people will give this drama a chance instead of giving up after just 1 episode. Looking forward to next episode.

First episode was a little bit of a mess, but it seems like it might be the kind of mess that's enjoyable to watch, so I might stick with it. I was really digging it for the first 30 minutes or so...things started to dwindle once when we hit the drinking scene. The episode was able to redeem itself thanks to the last 3 minutes at the end. KWB saying her name gave me goosebumps ?

I know Suzy is going to get the brunt of the acting criticisms, but honestly everyone's performance felt off. I thought she was serviceable at least when they weren't having her do that aegyo voice. Woo Bin felt like he was sleep-acting for some of his scenes. Even the short part with Im Joo Hwan and the documentary staff bickering at the restaurant felt awkward as hell. Is the editing to blame? Preproduction has definitely contributed to the show's pretty visuals but it doesn't seemed to have helped it feel polished at all.

I sound pretty negative, but I have to say that I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. I've seen others say that they felt the episode was slow, but it managed to keep me engaged throughout the whole thing. My only venture into the melo genre so far has been DOTS, which I wasn't to able get pass the 4th episode. I'm interested to see if this can keep me in longer.

Exactly! The show had a lot of information to dump but it seems paced slower so the scenes felt off. I actually think the PD/writer might take a different tack with the usual tropes. The estranged mother certainly seems to be different form the usual.

I was reading everything that was coming out for this drama so I thought I would be bored rehashing what I know till we get to the meat of the story. But the way it's edited is really well done. Even with everything I know it seems like I know nothing. All the things that makes me curious I have no answer for.

I am generally not into melo drama but I am enjoying the pain oozing off the leads. Even the anger and helplessness from our in-disguise-chaebol.

I thought everyone was serviceable and the leads equip themselves well. Suzy's drunk scene was a let down but she made up for it with her two crying scenes. No Eul feels like the world is too much for her to bear yet she's got no way out. Shin Young is so lonely and wants so badly to have a connection to someone but he won't ask for help. The both of them are living in a prison of their own makings and neither knows how to break free. I feel when our 2nd leads get introduced we'll be seeing similar prisons for them. Or maybe even the enitre cast. Everyone boxing themselves in and unable or unwilling to break from their own predicament.

My only complaint would be Suzy looks mighty young on close ups. I know she's pretty but whenever they zoom in on her face I feel like I am watching a teenager instead of a 28 year old.

Thanks for the speedy recap JB! And thanks for clarifying who everyone is - I got a little lost in the connections between some of the characters.

I enjoyed this first episode. I liked the contrast between the opening action scene from JY's drama and the quietness of his regular life. The scenes were gorgeous - the ending scenes especially, with the snow falling. There was one shot from above with the snow flowing past the camera down onto the heads of our OTP that was really lovely, I thought.

I am intrigued with the back story and glad to see we'll get some of that tomorrow. I wonder if we are going to jump back and forth between past and present, as it seems we have a lot of ground to cover in our OTP's past relationship.

I actually wasn't really excited for this new drama, maybe just interested? Well I found the first episode rather quite not as interesting or exciting. I will watch the next episode, just in case, then maybe I will continue to watch the whole drama. But I seem to never be able to finish a drama unless it is REALLY good, like I stop almost at the end of the drama series...maybe with 2-4 episodes left. Idk why tho, I just suddenly lose interest.lol

I get peeved when dramas throw out the terminal illness card, but don't even elaborate on what it is. All we know it that's incurable and he only has a year to live. It makes it feel even more so like just a fictional device to make the characters tragic.

If he's sick I wanna know what it is, I want to see how it affects his life and how it'll contribute to his characterization.

Ditto. I dont mind the terminal illness trope but i want them to actually do it well and like you said tell us what it is and show us how it effects joon young in his life. The fact that he's still sort of healthy and seems sort of fine in this episode (with the exception of the scene with his doctor where he looks like he's in pain) upsets me because i dont want his illness to be ensue angst between the leads. Despite this i still do feel sympathetic with joon young especially those scenes where he seems kind of lonely

I have yet to watch the ep but this recap actually makes me more interested in watching it. I was planning to only tune in for Im Joo Eun but I really like Suzy's character as being described here. I like how her "brightness" is actually her bull dozing way through the shittier aspects of life. It seems like she has a deep streak of cynicism running through her covered by cheers and a sweet face.

The first episode was okay. I'm not a big melo fan and have a short attention span during the slump in the middle of dramas.

I'm thinking the key to keep me watching is lots of Pororo, with possibly his own theme song from the OST that plays during his angsty dog scenes.

I liked this first episode and will be staying unless something horrible (horrendous acting, overabundance of cliches, etc.) drives me away. I like the leads though am not a huge fan of either of them. I read the synopsis, I like romances, and that was enough to start me watching.

His refusing to die in the movie as a manifestation of his refusing to die in real life was good. I like that he's not sappy about it (though someone who's been told they have a terminal illness certainly has every reason to be) and that he's not giving up easily, though he has been "acting out."

I like Woo Bin's acting. I think it's subtle, not overboard like I've seen so many do. Suzy's acting I haven't seen much of, but I think she's doing pretty well (with the exception of the drunk scene which always seems to be a good test of one's acting abilities).

The cliche of one owing a huge amount of money has reared its head, but I've made up my mind not to hold it against anyone. It's their reason for re-connection, or at least hers.

And I am so glad they fessed up to their acknowledging each other at the end rather than bringing in (1) amnesia, (2) change of name, (3) extremely altered look to the point of being unrecognizable.

Looking forward to the next chapter of our story...
Grateful for the recap!

First, it's a pretty drama. So easy on the eyes to watch. Beautiful casts and cinematography. Though i agree Suzy looks a lot younger than 28 years old. Not a fan of her styling but it's not that important. Lol

I actually find psh loosing weight for her role in "Doctors" to be commendable, cause she suits her role as a 31yr old doctor. Whereas suzy is not convincing enough as a 28yr old in her drama aside leaving aside her acting.

Yes, I could agree with you more that whether or not an individual likes this drama is a matter of mood and preference. I would also include expectation.

I'm the type of person to fast forward through parts that I think are lagging but I wasn't the least bit compelled to do that.

This drama was over-hyped to death! And to be quite honest, I rode on the train for a while because it seemed like an engaging melodrama. But, once I sat and actually watched the show, I felt...unmoved. The first episode was just all over the place and I couldn't really relate to Suzy's character. She's not convincing enough. Would love to see her better at emoting. Maybe then, I'll get into the drama. I know it's only the first episode, and I may be nitpicking too much, but I would love to see some better acting.

I think Korean viewers were so harsh on it because KBS seemed to REALLY hype up the show to them and raised their expectations. I mean, I think we only saw 1/3 of the overall promos for the show. I saw pics of billboards somewhere too. And IMO, you don't hype up a show this much unless it really delivers from the start or it can really backfire. Hopefully the show continues to get better and either way, I think the leads will keep at least a segment of the population watching.

People who lowered their standards are mostly the ones that enjoyed it seems. I was a little bored but I'm in that camp. Not sure if I'm in the mood for a straight melo though.

Suzy's acting really improved especially the part that her teared up while lying on the cement. And I also loved when a tearful KWB turned back his car because he thought Suzy caught in an accident.

I accept WooBin's illness but thankfully no amnesia for Suzy... Amnesia is so much used nowadays. Plus points to that.

So based on first episode and promos so far, here are the things that I notice:
1. Joon Young and No Eul were sweetheart lovers got separated by accident. No Eul is most probably got amnesia.
2. Joon Young has mysterious terminal illness. (Oh God, please don't let him die)
3. Assemblyman Choi is most probably Joon Young's father, thus makes Ji Tae and Joon Young half-brother and they'll form love triangle with No Eul.
4. No Eul's parents are missing/dead but she still has little brother. I wonder how many people would know/related to No Eul at this point.

Predictable so far.. but what can I do? It's KWB first male lead role and I pray it'll better than YYS's Warm and Cozy.

Woo Bin is an actor I like and I hope he continues to improve and does great. Good luck to him. He did something right to get the ratings....

I am also hoping that the plot becomes lighter and provides some depth. First episode felt a lot flat.

I wondered why they both looked as if they did not recognize each other ... I am puzzled by that. If they have some history, and know each other but have decided to be strangers, even then, there is certain amount acting involved to show that sentiment. There was nothing. They were like strangers one minute and next 10 minutes they were calling each other shekkias...

Suzy is alright. Attack on her acting is just habit i think. She will not win oscars but she will be just fine. This character so far has not indicated that an award winning actress needs to play it.

Finally, I am hoping for more charm from KWB. I am here for him.

It felt like he only truly realise who she was in the car at the ending scene. I get that Suzy pretending not to recognise him though, despite knowing who he is irl. Really confused over this haha.
