Uncontrollably Fond cast and review


Shin Joon-young (Kim Woo Bin) is a famous singer and actor, while Noh Eul (Bae Suzy) works with a documentary producing agency. After losing her father, Noh Eul dropped out of school to make money for the family, while Shin Joon Young’s mother wanted him to be a prosecutor just like his demised father, but he chooses a different track and is heading towards it. Later, when Shin Joon Young realizes that he has few months left to live, he decides to quit law school and pursue his dream of becoming an actor where he meets No Eul. She asks her producer if she can make a documentary about Shin’s life, to which the producer agrees. At first, Shin teases her by rejecting every offer of producing a documentary over him but later allows her to do so, ending up conquering her heart back.

Can you take your eyes off them?

• Kim Woo Bin as Shin Joon Young

Kim Woo Bin

Kim Woo Bin played the lead role in Uncontrollably Fond. You might have heard this name before in the star cast of another famous K-Drama, “The Heirs”. He played the role of a rude, arrogant moneybag in The Heirs. Though even now, his character in this drama has a pinch of rudeness in the initial episodes. You won’t hate it either. It still somehow attracts you, but as the story spreads itself, you can easily identify that the man is suffering from some major health issues and doesn’t want to die at all, at least at this point where he is all settled happily with everything. There are a lot many scenes in the show which will give you chills down your spine.

• Bae Suzy as No Eul

Bae Suzy

Bae Suzy plays the female lead in the drama. You might have seen her in some famous dramas like dream high and while you were sleeping. I personally felt that the character was a mix of emotions and maturity to which Suzy justified correctly. Taking care of financial conditions, after her father’s demise to swallowing pain given from Shin Joon Young, No Eul played and lived each moment differently.

The characters of the drama are written so beautifully and with a wide description of their lives (present or past) that they carry a sweet and sour relationship throughout the drama. You will definitely enjoy how they uncover their past and how both of them react to it, thus giving the story a candid twist. Each character held a strong base of its own but watching them as a couple is way too adorable. You can’t take your eyes off the romance when they are together. From small gestures to a big decision or even struggling with their respective life issues, the couple stood rock strong, converting the teenage relationship into a mature love bond.
