Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 6
by | July 22, 2016 | 173 Comments
We finally get to see events from Eul’s point of view, and with messy emotions flying everywhere, it’s no wonder the poor girl is so upset and confused. Both Joon-young and Ji-tae are bundles of contradictions, and untangling the truth isn’t easy when the players barely understand their own emotions.... More »

Both of Eul’s erstwhile suitors step up their game, though not exactly in expected ways. With one stepping forward and one stepping back, Eul is so confused she doesn’t know where to turn. In fact everyone is pretty confused now that feelings are being admitted and intentions declared, and it’s going to take some serious... More »

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 4

With the backstory firmly established, we get to spend more time in the present and move beyond initial misunderstandings and crossed wires, and I’m enjoying the way our characters interact now that the initial icy layer has been breached. Not that we’re anywhere near the warm gooey center, mind you (I don’t know why this... More »

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 3

Now that’s more like it. I did already enjoy the first week of Uncontrollably Fond, but today reveals more backstory, and takes enough time to get into the emotions and pathos of the complications in Eul and Joon-young’s past that account for their present-day tensions. It’s not a full picture yet, but whereas last week’s... More »

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 2
by | July 7, 2016 | 166 Comments
The high school versions of these characters are much more endearing than their adult counterparts, but I guess that’s the point—to really highlight how much they’ve changed, and to make us wonder what on earth happened to them in the intervening years to make our present-day characters so prickly. Love? Loss? Lobotomies? Or just good... More »

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... More »

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...

Character posters for Uncontrollably Fond’s leading foursome
by | June 14, 2016 | 73 Comments
I was beginning to think this drama only had two characters in it. But new posters are out for KBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday melodrama Uncontrollably Fond, and second leads Im Joo-hwan (Oh My Ghostess) and Im Joo-eun (Heirs) are finally in the mix. Naturally, so are Suzy and Kim Woo-bin (as if we could miss them).... More »

Kim Woo-bin rocks out for Uncontrollably Fond
by | June 9, 2016 | 108 Comments
Kim Woo-bin is going to play a rock star in this drama? I don’t know why, but that seems really odd to me. I guess when they described his character as a top star, I automatically pictured him playing an actor. But there he is, with a guitar, looking like he’s supposed to be a... More »
