Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 9

Secrets are hard to keep when they’re not-really-so-secret, but when the truth is too painful to speak aloud, maybe keeping quiet is ultimately a better option. But even in the face of pain, there’s a lot of happiness to be squeezed out of life if you just know where to search for it. But what’s a guy to do when all the looks and charm in the world can’t get him what he wants?

EPISODE 9 RECAP

Before calling Joon-young, Eul thinks about him telling his mother how he feels about her. He’d said he’s madly in love with her, and it had flustered her. She’s now realizing that his confessions and claims of his feelings weren’t a joke, and she thinks back on things he’s said, understanding now that he meant every word.

She calls him and says haltingly that she’s decided to trust him, just this once. At first he looks like he might cry, but then he gets excited and he tells her to say that again to his face. He rushes to her, but as he’s walking towards her, his vision suddenly goes blurry.

After a few seconds it resolves, and he goes to Eul with a huge smile, and grabs her in a grateful hug. Eul is surprised, but Joon-young asks her to stay just for a minute, as he blinks through more blurry vision.

Ji-tae finally shows up at Unni’s restaurant long after Eul’s given up and left, but he says he actually came to see Unni. He gives her a generous check, saying that the money is to pay for future meals for Eul. He’s not coming back here, nor does he ever plan to see Eul again.

Joon-young holds onto Eul for a long time, his vision shifting in and out. Meanwhile Ji-tae’s mother wakes in the hospital to see her husband kneeling by her bedside, worried sick about her. Joon-young’s mom also lies awake, tormented by her conflicted feelings towards her son.

When Eul points out that it’s been more than a minute, Joon-young asks for another minute. Augh, he’s so scared and just holding on for dear life, needing her but not wanting her to see his desperation.

Ji-tae goes to see Jung-eun, and crushes her in a desperate kiss. It’s obvious he’s unmoved, but trying to force his feelings for her, since he can’t have the one he wants.

Finally Joon-young’s vision clears, and he jokes cheekily that he’d like to stay like this all night. Eul pushes him off and he just grins, and asks her to say again what she said over the phone. She clarifies that by trusting him, she didn’t mean she’s really going to trust him (Joon-young’s smile widens, hee), but that she needs to trust him because her income depends on him. I don’t think he’s buying it, sweetie.

Joon-young just nods and says she’s really pretty, so Eul makes a squishy face at him. He’s too besotted and just says that makes her even prettier, and asks for a kiss, but Eul weakly threatens to kill him, hee. She mock-grumpily takes off, but Joon-young calls after her that he’ll see her tomorrow… and the next day… and the next day…

Eul is more flustered than she lets on, because she trips and falls, HA. Joon-young laughs after her, looking happier than we’ve ever seen him. This guy is toast.

He’s all business the next day when Eul arrives on the set of his latest drama to film some more footage for his documentary. Gook-young has to promise the milling reporters that he’ll arrange interviews with Joon-young and Yuna for them after filming to get them to settle down, and they start their scene.

A rogue drone flies over the set, and whacks Eul in the back of the head, knocking her down. Joon-young maintains his judicious distance, but later during the interview he keeps staring intently at Eul. Yuna takes over when Joon-young doesn’t seem inclined to answer questions.

When pushed to speak he keeps things vague, saying that they’re professionals, but deserve to have private lives out of the spotlight. He doesn’t understand the obsession with gossiping about his love life, and why the person he loves is hated and threatened. He’s looking directly at Eul as he expresses his confusion and disappointment.

He says that he won’t say anything else about this issue, and adds that he won’t be doing interviews any more after this. He leaves, but suddenly the reporters start asking Eul questions about her relationship wth Joon-young, and one of them guesses that it’s really Yuna who’s being used as a shield. Uh-oh.

Interestingly, it’s Yuna who speaks up, and Eul says that she actually likes someone else. Joon-young isn’t her style, mentioning that she’s a fan of a different top star, but it doesn’t seem like she’s fooling anyone.

Joon-young surprises her by sliding into her car, and immediately grouches that she’s some other guy’s fan, calling him a total player. PFFT, he’s so jealous. Eul is worried they’ll get caught, and Joon-young is all, Caught because I’m actually your type? Because you like me back?

Eul calls Gook-young and tattles that Joon-young is in her car, so Joon-young grabs her phone away before she can say where they are. He says that everything that happens to him from now on is her fault, and stomps out of her car. After he’s gone she realizes that he left a jar of sausages in the seat for her, awww.

Ji-tae’s mother is sitting down to an unnecessarily lavish meal with her brother Hyun-gil, a police chief, though she doesn’t touch a bite. He complains that her husband, betrayed him, but she counters that she just sent Hyun-gil money a month ago.

Apparently Hyun-gil’s son got drunk and beat up someone, but Choi refused to get him off the hook, and Mom’s brother feels wronged. Mom says that if word got out they could get in a lot of trouble, but he thinks he’s entitled to the help because he’s family.

Hyun-gil mentions Joon-young’s mother and how they used to be close, which upsets Ji-tae’s mom. He says that he feels bad because she was carrying Joon-young, but he sent her away on Ji-tae’s mother’s request. Flustered, Ji-tae’s mother slips him an envelope of money and tries to leave, but he starts moaning loudly about poor Choi, raising someone else’s son while his own son is right in front of him.

Stuck and with no other choice, Ji-tae’s mom calls someone to arrange to have a significant sum of money transferred to Hyun-gil. She falters when she sees Ji-tae waiting for her outside the restaurant, and he takes the phone and angrily cancels the money transfer.

Back at their home, Ji-tae’s mom asks how much he knows. He says he knows everything, even that Joon-young is Choi’s son. He gently urges his mother to tell Choi the truth, including Hyun-gil’s ongoing threats to her.

She’s scared her husband will leave her, and tells Ji-tae that she liked Choi even before Joon-young’s mother, Young-ok, did. She’s the one who stood by his side as he became the man he is today, sure that Young-ok would have held him back if they’d stayed together.

Ji-tae agrees, which is why he thinks his father will forgive her if she confesses everything. But his mother knows Choi still dreams of Young-ok, and she believes that if he learns she had his child, he’ll want to be with her and his son. Horrified, Ji-tae says that he’s his son too, even if they’re not be blood-related.

Ji-tae calls his father to tell him he loves him, and Choi jokingly returns the sentiment. Ji-tae invites him out for a drink and they arrange to meet soon, and Ji-tae nearly breaks when Choi casually calls him “Son.”

It was his plan to tell his father everything today, and he’d promised his mother that her husband wouldn’t leave her. She hadn’t been convinced — his biological father left them for another woman, and she believes Choi will leave her, too. She’d asked for three months, accidentally letting slip that in three months, Joon-young will be dead.

Joon-young and Eul continue their interview, where she asks him to tell her one item on his bucket list. He says he wants to hear, “You’re just my style” from the person who just asked him the question. Eul deadpans, “I’ll edit that out.”

She asks again, and this time he answers that he wants to hear “I love you” from the woman standing in front of him. Eul tells him to knock off the jokes, but Joon-young isn’t joking even a little bit, and Eul sighs in frustration.

He asks if she washed her hair, and when she spits back that she did, he takes it as proof that she likes him. She can’t win with this guy. Eul says she didn’t shower, actually, and hasn’t bathed in a week, and she even threatens to fart in front of him, ha.

Gook-young interrupts to take Joon-young to his photo shoot and invites Eul along, but she’s headed back to Seoul. She says that Joon-young is acting weird, and he shoots her a snooty look and stomps off, leaving behind another jar of sausages in his chair. Cute.

At the photo shoot Yuna suggests she and Joon-young date for real, and when he doesn’t answer she asks what his relationship is with Eul. She calls Eul too low-class for a top star like him, and grows upset, asking what Eul has that she doesn’t have.

She accuses Joon-young of making her feel bad, but he reminds her that she’s the one who agreed to this fake relationship. He does express his gratitude to her for helping him and Eul, but that just makes Yuna angry. She storms off, and trips over a power cord hidden in the sand. It’s attached to the light behind Joon-young, and it crashes down on his head.

Just as Eul is leaving to go back to Seoul, Gook-young jumps in front of her car and tells her that Joon-young was injured. He begs Eul to go to the hospital with Joon-young, and she jumps in the van that’s about to leave. She’s worried sick on the drive, and asks the driver if Joon-young was badly hurt.

He says he was, that his life may be in danger, and Eul is too scared to even recognize Joon-young’s voice behind the driver’s mask. She grows angry when he stops for a cup of coffee, and yells at him to keep going because she has something she needs to say to Joon-young.

He says it will just take a few minutes, so Eul jumps out of the van and goes around to drive herself. She screams when the driver doesn’t respond, and he finally gets out and takes off his glasses, revealing a small bandage and Joon-young’s sparkling eyes.

He asks if she was so worried about him that she was planning to confess her love, and earns himself a kick in the shin. Yeah, he deserved that. Eul takes off down the road and Joon-young trails after her, contrite now, saying that it wasn’t really a lie because he did get a bonk on the head.

He whines at her, asking why she pretended she didn’t like him when her worry gives her away. Eul trips on a rock (dang, this girl trips over everything), and Joon-young takes off the mask to blow on her scraped hand. But his bare face reveals an even worse gash on his cheek, and the sight of it melts away Eul’s anger.

Out of nowhere, Eul leans forward and kisses Joon-young, on the corner of his mouth below his scratch. He’s struck silent, and Eul admits, “Fine, you’re my style. Okay? And yes, I like you. Are you happy now?” She fusses at him for planning a date when he’s this hurt, and he stops her complaints with another kiss. A really, really good one.

Some time later, Haru aegyos her father to take her along to a k-pop festival he’s attending, but she’s distracted by something and asks her driver to stop the car. It’s Jik, walking to school, carrying something in his jacket — and it’s meowing. She’s surprised that he’s in high school, but he says he never told her different, then he asks if she has any money.

They get his kitten some food, and he says that someone abandoned it. He asks her politely to look after it while he goes to school, even calling her “noona,” but she refuses. Jik turns his puppydog eyes on Haru and pouts that pretty people are usually nice, and it works. Well played, sir… well played.

Gook-young tries the same Joon-young is hurt, you have to come quick trick on his mother, but she’s not a soft touch like Eul. He has to physically drag her out and takes her to a fancy clothing shop, where Joon-young is waiting. Mom tries to leave, but Joon-young stops her, and Gook-young literally hangs on her leg to keep her from moving, heh.

As it turns out, awards are being given to mothers of Hallyu stars at the k-pop festival today, and he plans for his mother to go. He buys her one of every outfit in her size, and tells the saleswomen to ignore Mom when she tries to refuse.

Joon-young reveals that a lot of important people will be there today, including Assemblyman Choi. He asks her to be proud of her son just this once, and Mom is too shocked to object.

Ajusshi is also going to the ceremony, and he cleans up really well in the tuxedo that Joon-young sent. His daughter plays the reporter and asks him to say a few words about Joon-young’s mom, but he can’t think of anything to say about her helping make her son a star.

Ajusshi wonders where Mom is — she’s huddled outside, scared to go to the ceremony and possibly run into Choi. Joon-young watches her from his car, unsure of what to do.

Eul goes over the footage from the cameras she’s installed in Joon-young’s home, and wonders what he’s saying all the times he looks at the camera and talks. She plugs in the audio but she still can’t hear, and wonders what’s wrong with the recording.

Joon-young had told her not to come to the ceremony today, but her colleague says that as the PD of the documentary, she needs to go to film the festival. So she goes, cleaning up in the restroom as best she can, and doing a pretty good job with what little she’s got.

Jik calls to ask when she’ll be home, and she says she’s got an unexpected shoot tonight. Na-ri snatches the phone to remind her that it’s her father’s memorial day, and Eul stops cold, shocked that she totally forgot. Jik takes the phone back and says that Dad will understand, and Na-ri admits that he’s right… making a living comes first.

Eul is so taken aback that she can’t even respond, and they assume she hung up. Jik keeps checking his phone, hoping to hear from Ji-tae, who always comes to their memorial services. But he’s not calling either, and Jik can’t call him because he’s changed his number.

Ji-tae is actually standing on their doorstep in a suit with a bottle of wine, but he doesn’t go in. he just leaves the wine on the stairs, and goes.

Choi, his wife, and Haru are on their way to the festival, and Mom nervously asks if Joon-young will be there. Both Haru and her father say he won’t, and Mom pretends disappointment. When they get to the venue Mom tries to send Haru home immediately, but Haru whines that she wants to at least see Joon-young first. Whoops.

The kitten jumps out of her purse where she was hiding it, and Haru chases after it down the red carpet. Mom asks her husband why they lied about Joon-young, and Choi says that he just thought she’d send Haru home, and convinces Mom to let her stay.

Eul holds an impromptu memorial for her father, apologizing for forgetting about him. Haru’s kitten jumps up and knocks over the soju, then starts chowing down on the french fries. Haru comes to retrieve the kitten, and offers to pay Eul for the ruined food.

Eul is insulted and knocks Haru on the head, saying that she should have apologized. Choi comes looking for his daughter, and Eul recognizes him with horror. Choi is perfectly polite, though Haru lies that Eul just hit her for no reason.

Eul asks if Choi recognizes her, and Haru whines that this is the gold-digger who tried to get her claws into her precious Joon-young. Choi shushes her and takes in the ruined food, and Eul flatly tells him, “Today is my father’s memorial day.”

He seems genuinely sorry and offers her more money to make up for it, then even more when she doesn’t take it. A voice from behind them says firmly, “You should apologize first,” and Joon-young strides up to the group.

He snatches the money from Choi’s hand and angrily throws it to the ground. He repeats that he should apologize to Eul, and he and Choi lock eyes in a battle of wills.

COMMENTS

I have a feeling that all the birth secrets are about to be blown sky-high, as the players are starting to circle closer and closer to each other. Big secrets like that can’t be kept forever, and everyone really knows everything for the most part, they just don’t know that everyone else knows. The only true secret is Joon-young’s illness, and now even Ji-tae knows about that. I’m curious to see what he does with that information once he learns that Eul is falling for Joon-young. Will he spill the beans to try to protect her? Or will he keep it to himself and let her be happy for as long as she can?

One thing I really appreciate about this drama is how it shows the characters’ emotions to be so true-to-life, messy and complicated and unclear even to their owners. Ji-tae’s father is a good example — he obviously still carries a torch for Joon-young’s mom. But at the same time, I believe he loves his wife and would do anything to make her well, even sacrifice himself. Love does not cancel itself out, and it’s entirely possible to truly love one person while still retaining feelings for an old love. Joon-young’s mother is another wonderful example of conflicting feelings, as she struggles with loving her son and hating his life choices, and only manages to confuse the two. She ends up treating Joon-young as if she hates him, which is clearly not the case, but she can’t separate her anger at his decisions from the actual man her son has become. So she just attacks and hopes to get her son back the way he used to be, which is impossible. I just hope she resolves her feelings before it’s too late for both of them.

Ji-tae, too, is a bundle of emotional contradictions. His situation moves me the most, because he has no control over how he ended up in such a confusing and traumatic place, but he’s stuck trying to work it all out alone. He loves his father desperately, and yet he can’t fully open up with him, knowing that at least once he chose to use his position to do a terrible thing. He loves Eul, but he can’t be honest with her because of how his father wronged her, and I respect that he’s trying to do the right thing and stay away, and set her free to live her own life. He’s even prepared to marry a woman he doesn’t love, and doesn’t even like, knowing that she’s the reason he’s in this predicament in the first place. I’m not entirely sure, but I think he believes that if he marries Jung-eun and honors the deal with the devil that his father made, it will at least make the whole situation make some insane sort of sense. I also think that he sees his father happy enough with the woman who wasn’t his first choice, and hopes that he can find the same happiness. It’s hard to watch because Ji-tae is a good person and he deserves better, but it’s because he’s a good person that he’s putting himself through all this.

In fact, Joon-young is the only person in this show who knows and understands his feelings clearly, and acts on them decisively. Even Eul was confusing her feelings for Ji-tae for love (I believe she cares for him, and feels a lot of gratefulness towards him for taking care of her and Jik, but she can’t really love him when she doesn’t even know who he is), so when real love found her, she had trouble recognizing it for what it is. But Joon-young has no problem knowing what he wants and going after her with single=minded purpose, and I love him for that. Seeing him smoothly switch tactics every time Eul moves the goalposts on him is hilarious, and he always manages to keep her off-balance, which turned out to be her downfall. There’s no way she could resist that cheeky grin and his teasing manner for long. It’s sweet that his desire to go on a date when he really needed a doctor is what tipped her over into her own confession, because she couldn’t let him keep making stupid choices just to get her to like him. Easier to just give in and actually like him, and those kisses looked very, very worth it.

Yeah. I droped W after one ep but can't get myself out of this. Even when smiling happily with the romance between Eul and Joon Young, the melancholy touch of it still makes my chest tight. I think this deep feeling of sadness is what keeps me so absorbed in this movie.

Well all the more that people here should understand that they should drag another drama down to bring one up.

As a fan of both shows and who loves discussion it's starting to get annoying seeing comments on either show putting the other one down.

They have no similarities in tone or concept. They're just in the same time slot lol and everyone seems to think that's enough justification to keep posting "Yo that drama sucks, I much prefer watching this one!!" as if it adds anything and hasn't been said before.

0

no offence but W also has recap today, and I just hope the comparison can be stopped before another commenters try to make a fuss or accusing someone,
since again , W has a recap today too,
the one who mention 1st is from this recap and I am afraid of another commenter who join to talk about how UF is better than W because this is UF recap come and go on, so better to avoid it,

it's enough that people enjoy UF as it is,
the comparison can be made in OT or even rating post

0

@lana, considering how much hard time W fans keep giving to UF, if someone wants to say "I think UF better than W" why it should be taboo? W fans don't deny themselves this pleasure. UF fans has any right to express their opinion too, considering they're actually far more peaceful people and never used massive and aggressive "bring down W" tactic to make UF look better, unlike... So you better save this talk to W fans.

0

@savana it's not a taboo but then you have to take that's it's fair when people from W commented here and give their reasoning,
what I encourage is to avoid the situation because of the heated time and single series recap,
you definitely can compare but please mind the placed and the occasion to avoid confrontation,,,, or accept the confrontation,

but this can be simply avoided by replacing"W" name with "other drama"
which doesn't negate the effect that UF is better in OP opinion, which is completely fair,
that what I suggest,
be mindful to mention specific drama in the better place since that can bring the un-needed argument.

0

Ive seen a lot of UF fans do the same and say that it doesnt deserve it and blah blah. Both fans of both shows have some extreme fans but that doesn't mean that all fans do so. She has a preference its not like its a mean comment but just stop talking about it in this article in the VV article I didnt see anyone mention UF

i have to agree with this, and im not actually really into UF as i havent been watching it. but man the amount of shade and passive aggressive digs at UF using W was ridiculous, i would see it everywhere and even though im not watching UF it got annoying.

Seriously? Why should she "refrain"? I'm left shaking my head at this comment. I'm sure no one is trying to 'elevate' this drama by saying they dropped another while keeping to this one. Choice, my friend, choice. And being able to voice that choice, is what the worldwide web is about. Try not to tell others what to think or say. I'm pretty sure you've openly compared dramas in your time. And if not, still gives you no call to gag others from saying what they think.

While this is a very mild case of comparison, which is perfectly fine, there have been some more extreme cases where some dramas have been bashed in order to show that the other dramas are "so much better". Would you be okay with someone who comments that people are stupid or have bad taste just because they prefer a certain drama over another? There's voicing a choice, and then there's just hating.

0

I am sorry if I am offended you but I just think the "W" can be simply replaced as "other drama" because the sentiment between 2 drama is high at the moment and I just hope there's not much complaining what drama is the best for them in One Series recap,
it can build up like wild comment because of the situation now and I just hope it doesn't happen,

it's another matter if the recap mentioned another drama, or it's an open thread or a discussion about ratings,

0

Well Iana I'm not going to be made to call a drama I'm referring to as that 'other drama' just to protect someone else's sensibilities.

If I want to compare W and Uncontrollably Fond in any way, positive or negative, I think I'm allowed to. People really shouldn't be so sensitive.

I can't understand it when others take things so seriously. I'm not even interested in watching "W" and yet, was instantly curious about Uncontrollably Fond. So far, it's keeping me hooked.

I might try W soon, and if I like it then I'll support it wholeheartedly but if I don't like it, I should be allowed to make my thoughts known.

"I wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school... I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy..." For some reason this came to mind. LOL

But really, I am pretty sure many are watching both this and the "other drama", because both dramas put them in different moods, and choosing one to rave over the other is completely fine. Can't we all just get along? XD

oh lol. Of course they don't talk about UF in their articles, they usually go and mess with UF articles and create buzzfeed in shared articles. Also about UF saying something. Come and say it, when you will have whole articles dedicated to bashing W with comparing it UF. Then we will talk about "both fandoms". What's happening (and happened) is happening. No need to deny. On this note, I'm officially done with it and out.

I'm enjoying UF a lot more than the "other drama", in fact I put it on hold because I find it pretty boring, regardless of its dynamics. I can't relate to it at all and I couldn't care less for its characters.

UF, on the other hand, makes me live every minute of it, I'm just totally addicted to it.

I'm witchu! I enjoy everything about this drama. While I've never been interested in a melodrama before, simply bc I'm not into watching "sad," I'm actually okay with being forewarned, and prepping myself for a tragic ending (thanks to those who've watched works by this screenwriter before) due to the warm and cozy tone, the refreshing characters, the intriguing story, and the beautiful ost.

I am a viewer who has watched many-a-drama with a critical eye, but this one really hits the spot for me! I love coming to dramabeans for opinions and insights, but it occurred to me while watching today's episode that if I hadn't, in this case for UF, I would have blissfully watched the whole drama series ignorant of anyone finding such major faults with it.

And that's okay. I'm going to just keep on enjoying it, and keep on taking in/appreciating what everyone else's perspectives offer. xo

I love this drama too despite all the harsh comments. While the other drama is interesting with a fresh concept, I will always watch UF first, and watch it repeatedly during the week before we get new episodes. I'll even wait until midnight the same night to watch it unlike the other drama which I'd watch the next day.

I'm not sure what exactly is pulling me in with this drama but I'm actually looking forward to the pain and heartache that will come. I'm not an overt fan of Woobin or Suzy before but will probably be after this. They are hitting the right notes for me and are making me care about their characters.

Same here, I have only watched 1 episode of W, only because of interest sparked by the "fairly civil comparison to W's sudden success two weeks into UF", over here at UF comment-factory, and although I love LJS as well as KWB'S new dramas on being different genres, there is something about UF that makes me feel so so so happy -- I know it is sad. But I can't wait for this show to air during other nights of the week. Agh for the thrill I vote for KWB, any day of the week.

Still tuning in watching this drama. It's not the brightest ones but it still okay to watch. Woobin is good for eyes ?
One thing I notice is people in this drama were really slow at reading other's face or reaction even when it should be really obvious. This is melo but I keep laughing watching it. They should just do it romcom way ?

The whole episode is a blur to me because of that kitten in the end. How hungry must he have been to grab and eat that potato stick. Plus even if he ruined the memorial, I don't think I could be so cruel to shoo him away when he is so young and hungry. Watching stuff like that just ruins me for me.

I think she's allergic to the cat like she was to the dog - probably why Jik asked HaRu to take care of it too! So I don't fault her for shooing the cute little kitty away!

Mate if that kitten ruins my parents memorial service I'll had grab it and threw it off even though I am allergic. It's disrespectful to the dead. I thought she was too nice in that scene. Like I would have slapped the shit out of Haru for throwing money on my father's memorial service.

I did forget about the allergy, so it makes sense. However, getting angry at the kitten because he "ruined" the father's memorial is a bit ironic, considering she forgot the real memorial at home and is offering soju and chips on a bench.

I saw it as misdirected anger. She is clearly disappointed in herself for forgetting her father's memorial and she is even more angry at herself that all she could do was by the cheapest things at the nearest convenience store to offer for his makeshift memorial service. And then here comes this cat who knocks the bottle over and eats the chips...it's like "la goutte qui fait déborder le vase" (sorry I can't think of the equivalent expression in english at the moment :S).

Therefore, she lets off some of her frustration on the cat. But then here comes Haru and her father who just completely disrespect Eul and the memory of her father...Eul had every right to get angry and emotional.

I'm watching this in South East Asia where its HOT all year long but I didn't feel uncomfortable with the scarves and coats at all. The attire, snow and grey ambiance mostly gives off an ethereal, melancholy, fantasy feel which I think is nice. But I agree, since the show is catered to Korean audience that it probably would have been better aired during autumn/winter.

Be still my heart - two consecutive good episodes.

I loved most of the episode. The adorable banter between the two, the scene with mom, JT finding out the truth, and the last confrontation b/w father and son.

Can i say that kwb is adorably as the man in love. His antics are making me smile in every scene. And that press conference scene was nice. Good acting.

The show seems to finally hitting its stride. Though i do wish they had crafted the beginning better. They could have avoided all the negative press.

Holy...2 recaps within hours of each other? LollyPip, when do you sleep?! Or is it that you don't sleep so that Javabeans and Girlfriday finally can (just a little)? I feel like recappers here are like that guy in Lost who had to keep entering the numbers in the computer and the only way out of it to get a little rest himself was to get someone else to take over. Only the work you and our awesome Dramabeans overlords do actually is vital and would cause worldwide destruction without it. Think I'm exaggerating? See what happens if you take away recaps from us readers. Addicts need their fix yo.

Thank you Lollypip and recappers! But hey you did great! I didn't expect to refresh and find BIOG ep 8 done, and a while. Later you posted This one! Thanks!

I'm so liking Woo bin's character, he's not afraid of letting his emotions and feelings uncovered. He's. So brave, maybe is a consequence of his illness.

He's not afraid to go to his mom, even when she keeps rejecting him, he fights to get his mom back.
He's not afraid of showing Eul that he loves her, and wants to be with her as long as possible and be happy.

I'd just love if they don't turn him into the noble idiot lead. Or even Eul, I hope she doesn't leave him.

Is kinda good having all those plots from old school dramas (birth secrets, terminal illness, rich guy-poor girl, bribing over a mortal accident, etc) but I don't want to see noble idiocy in this one.

Can we get more Pororo time, please??? :D :D :D <3

"Just give me three months to tell my husband! Give me a little time, surely that's not too much for your mother to ask!

After all, I'm just waiting for his only biological son to die a lingering and probably quite painful death, one that will place immense pressure on his single parent (you know, the woman whose name he murmurs in my sleep and who I threatened when she was pregnant). I'm sure your adoptive father will never be haunted by the fact that his dead son knew exactly who he was for most of his life, was privy to your his most shameful professional event, practically married the girl your father ruined, and died after spiraling bouts of pain, blindness and vomiting.

None of that will happen. I'll tell him in three months, maybe once the funeral is completely over, and then we'll be happy. HAPPY. Right?"

I don't know if I missed it before or they just told us about Ji-tae not being assembly man Choi's biological son. But until this episode I had a burning question which was answered today!! I was wondering that if Ji-tae is older than Joon-young (which was clear when he was telling his "friend" and friend's little bro liking the same girl story a couple of episodes ago), then when daddy Choi got with Joon-young's mom, was he already married to Ji-tae's mom. But makes sense now that it was clear that Ji-tae was from mom's previous relationship. Hence he is older. Phew! It was driving me nuts.

Thanks Lollypip! I think I love Ji-tae the most here, in this episode at least. I am so touched that he didn't forget Dad's death anniversary. He did let Eul go but he still left money in the restaurant for her to spend. I am just swooning in the wrong sort of way, because well, he ran to his financée soon after, like out of desperation. You're right it was really hard to watch him go through this turmoil, of letting Eul go once and for all. Ji-tae struggles at every turn while the man just means well. Such a pitiful character but I love him. I'm actually glad that he knows that Joon-young is sick and dying. I'm expecting him to swoop in and rescue Eul for the impending heartache. Trouble is Ji-tae is the second lead, and second leads just somehow do it in the wrong way, at the worst possible time. They never had the chance of having the perfect timing reserved for main leads. Oh my heart!

I will agree that the emotions in this show are well done. Joon Young may be an asshole and Ji Tae may look suspicious, but their intentions make sense. The deeper side of them makes them much more likable and you can't help but sympathize for them because of the realistic challenges they have to face.

I noticed the kick Eul gave to Joon Young. Payback for him kicking her in episode 6?

To be fair to Joon Young that at the beach side was probably payback for kicking him before her allergic reaction to Pororo. Anyway kicking a girl? Maybe at that point his frustration with her unrequited love for JiTae made him realize just how badly he will have to die alone and even his mom has to opt out at that technically, she seems quite stubborn, and maybe he lost in these impending terminally awful thoughts he kicked her not thinking. Seems she forgot this in her drunken state but she already got him back royally when she puked all over him.

Glad this was brought up, does anyone else think JY is recording his confessions in his role of covering for his father, and her subsequent accident. Because he KWB always makes me think he is professing his love for Eul since the moment he told her, via subtitles: "sorry, you not my style/type." Back in high school, he is so good at being so darn like able that No Eul probably sensed that eye contact there as, hold on girl I am checking you out, and now I am really gonna dump my girlfriend because my mother will never except her ruining my dreams of becoming a prosecutor. And then decides to use No Eul as his scapegoat, but in that moment of causing her to be the bad guy he realizes he fell for her at first sight. "Perhaps for Joon Young, that was when she first sent those ignored written msgs to him. So this is kind of payback for always insist lay annoying him when he was focused on something else and so he is toying with her, in a light banter type of way, for her to guess what he is saying before he dies of course, as a way to annoy her back.

So, suddenly I got an idea about the other world of this drama if this is written in Ji Tae as a protagonist/lead, we can go more melodrama ala 2000 .

The lead finds out that his dad has a secret's son. Someone who is more unfortunate than him. He feels bad and wants to compensate his dad wrongdoing by fulfilling his step brother wished.

He then realised that his step brother is dying and greatly hated his dad. Feared that he would reject his good will, he hides his identity. Little he knew, the step-brother loves the girl he loves, disown by her mother despite only has a short time to lived, even when he has become successful.

so he changed his resolution to give the best for his brother to the end of his life. He actively trying to find a donor, rejected the girl and help the brother anonymously.

Later, the girl fall in love completely to his brother and he realised how sad she will become because of his plan, he can ruin her life like what his dad did to her.

the ending also ala 2000, he gets an accident that makes him brain dead after sign consent to donor his healthy organ to his step brother, that saved his brother.

END

I really really love this episode! I didn't expect myself to like UF that much, but every episode just gets better and better. Just when I thought EP 7 & 8 were my favourites, EP 9 comes along!
JY teasing NE after the hug was the cutest thing, and I couldn't help smiling from ear to ear. But I think Suzy was really good in the build-up to the kiss, her eyes conveyed so much feels that when JY eventually swoops in for the kiss, it felt natural and not like many of the kdrama kisses nowadays that just felt shallow. I'm not a fan yet, but really rooting for Suzy to be recognized as an actress now. She deserves better!

I love this show but I can't exactly pin-point what I love about this show. Throughout the episode I had this weird memory of pain in my heart (if that makes sense). And I can't remember the last time a melodrama affected me so much (that might be because I don't watch much melos). I think it gives me the feeling similar to what I got while watching romantic Indian movies of the 90s. Maybe it is nostalgia, maybe it is KWB, maybe it is the soulful background music- I don't know what it is, but it sure as hell is working out for me.

Loved this episode more than I should. Why? So many reasons. First, the kiss. Well done KWB and Suzy! Their lips were moving, as they should. Second, secrets revealed - JT is not JYs biological brother and not his dad's biological son - whoa! Third, the writer, the producer, the execution of scenes. For example, the one where NE glances at something JY left in the seat of the van. It had a note that said "to No Eul" and then the scene blurred to transition into JT at the jewelry store looking at diamond rings. Awww - that was genius! The other actors are so good too - JYs mom's oppa (same guy who played Taek's dad in R88) -- he's great there and in UF.
Can't wait for tomorrow's episode!!

Nine episodes in, and I still don't really understand the romantic aspect of this drama. When/why exactly did SJY fall madly in love with No Eul? Do they have some sort of additional relationship history, beyond the highschool storyline where she tried to stick up for her lovelorn friend? Were they dating around the time her dad died? It's confusing. I suppose (as LollyPip pointed out) she doesn't really know Ji Tae and can't truly be in love with him, but still, how can she go from drunkenly crying about her love for him in one episode, to declaring her feelings for SJY in the next episode(s)? There's just something about the romance storyline that makes me feel like I missed some sort of backstory along the way.

This is precisely why their past relationship has no weight. Either we're supposed to fill in the gaps ourselves, or the actual moment was so flimsy it went unnoticed. I still keep expecting them to reveal that they dated in the past, but if it hasn't come already, I don't think it ever will. It hurts the romance when so much of it is supposed to be grounded in their past connection, but their past connection is actually weak as hell.

In episode 3 in the scene where he takes a nap and she paints on his face, when he gets up and sees her mixied laugh and crying he starts to notice his feelings for her. then in episode 8 he tells his mom that he's actually loved her for the past few years and had only noticed it a couple of weeks ago ? I'm still confused too but judging from ep 10 preview, we're still gonna see more flashbacks so i believe the questions about their love connection are gonna be answered too.

I can't figure out if WB intentionally tries to make an eye smile or is it really the way WB smiles anyway it's sooo sweet. JY is just so adorable in general.

I'm so loving this drama and all the feels and emotions despite the crazy complications in the plot. my heart broke for JT. he already lost the girl and he feels like he's about to lose everything else to JY real soon and then at the same time he also finds out about JY's terminal illness... I'm very eager to know what he'll do with the info too. hoping to see some brotherhood there.

about the kiss tho i loved it, but I'm sick of kdrama female leads having to act surprised with open eyes when being kissed, such an annoying cliché. I needed to see more touching, more passion like she should've grabbed JY or even slightly touched him idk. I have this issue with almost all the kdrama kisses, not blaming the actresses tho. I need to actually feel like it's two way, like the girl loves my oppas back.

I love this drama more than other ones. The love story & complications w/n the relationships of these characters truly bring you in. I get so entice into Joon Young & Enul initiate relationship that it's almost like a "Romeo & Juliet" love story overcoming the impossible. I truly feel bad that Joon Young is alone suffering physically with his own terminal illnesses & that evil woman knows the truth & toys with it for her own selfish gain...well Karma is a B lady! I got more confused watching the trailer that Ji Tae's fiancé is falling for Joon Young later on in the story. Omg! They can't be adding another complicated twisted relationship to this when there's too many issues to dealt w: currently like Joon Young is the son of Choi; Joon young is dying; Enul doesn't know Joon young is choi's son and that Ji Tae has been lying to her. I still love Joon young... He's funny, dashing and persuasive when it comes to his emotion. I still love this drama.

It's funny how Choi remebers JY but not NE even if he met both on same days in past and the meeting with NE should have had more of an impact on him as the later episodes have potrayed him as man with strong sense of right so that one wrong should haunt him which hints at that he might not have done any wrong and the meeting with JY shouldn't have been so memorable which may just allude that he knows JY is his son.

Oh yeah in true melodrama reveal fashion, we can't even be sure that JTs mom even knew about what happened concerning Eul's fathers accident, however I would not put anything past that sympathy seeking lunatic.

I do think that the drama did a sloppy job of presenting to us the feelings that NE and JY have for each other. In the past, NE had a huge crush on JY in high school and was going to confess to him before she saw him with her friend. So she had to have had good feelings about him back then to have developed that kind of high school crush. As for JY, once she was on his radar, I think he did spend a good amount of time on her. And boys at that age don't waste time like that on girls that don't care for at all. So definitely he had something going on there for her - going to her dad's funeral thing and even considered updating the number on the poster. While he did a crappy job of actually being nice and good to her in the past, I can see that something was there back then.

Fast forward to now, with the rough life each one has had, I can kinda understand how they got to this point. I know it's terribly unfair to NE to be losing yet another person she loves. But I know that she will not regret loving him for even that short period of time. Thank goodness JY is turning out to be such a teddy bear towards so cute, cuddly and sweet. I really like the press conference. He put it very nicely in his comments. I don't agree with him tricking her like that in the van scene with his injury but she did speak out her feelings when pushed like that. And to be fair, he really did sound like JY - he didn't really disguise his voice.

Anyways despite the many issues I have with the drama, somethings is still working right here and I still love it and the characters very much.

Thanks Lollipop! I love UF!! Especially the dynamics between Eul and Joon Young. Suzy and Woo Bin are doing great work. Every episode gets better and better. That grin! I can't help but smile back, even when tears are on the verge.

I want to shake both mothers. The irrational behavior and fear coming from both women is ruining their children's lives.

The moment Joon Young walks up to the memorial scene and says apologize first! Swoon!! Loved the strength he was showing the dad and support he was providing to Eul. Can't wait for 10!!

For everyone comparing dramas, we all have different preferences that sway our opinions. All valid. Have fun watching :)

Strangely, this drama seems to be so much more than the sum of its parts. I keep thinking, do I really want to watch something that is surely headed for a tragic ending? All of the plot points seems so mahkjong, but the execution just keeps sucking me back in.
