"Uncontrollably Fond" Episode 1

"Uncontrollably Fond" Episode 1

Nearly a year has passed since the first whispers of new pre-produced KBS2 drama"Uncontrollably Fond"began floating about. WriterLee Kyeong-heewho penned popular dramas such as"Nice Guy", "Will It Snow for Christmas?", and "A Love to Kill" returns for another sixteen episode dramawith DirectorPark Hyeon-seokof sageuk sensation "The Princess' Man" and the recent "Spy - Drama". It came in on top of the pack at 12.5%.

The first episode of"Uncontrollably Fond"was beautifully shot as is typical of Director Park, but tonally ambiguous, which is typical of Writer Lee. Filming began back in November of 2015 and finished three months ago in April. Pre-production means the drama can't be completely altered to cater to ratings, which is nice.

LeadsKim Woo-binas Shin Joon-yeong andSuzyasNo Eulfit well into their roles thus far. Woo-bin has long since mastered the smoldering, anguished look, which is necessary in this role. His character, diagnosed with terminal illness, is distressed by his imminent death and vacillates between arrogance, kindness, confusion, and angsty, long thinking sessions.Suzys character is struggling to pay back a massive loan shark debt and manipulates, cajoles, and does pretty much anything to acquire the money to do so and care for her younger brother who we have not yet met. As an actress, Suzy has well-portrayed her character up to this point without her typical awkwardness.

Im Joo-hwanas Choi Ji-tae is introduced as a quietly pining, side-handedly supportive second male lead. Not much of the character was shown, and the second female played byLim Joo-eun(reunited with her"What's Up"co-actorIm Joo-hwan") has not yet appeared. Short introductions of Ji-tae's family were made and a longer presentation of Joon-yeong's strained relationship with his mother filled out the melodrama of"Uncontrollably Fond".

When Joon-yeong andNo Eulmeet again, they pretend not to know each other, speaking in formal language. The episode ends with a direct confrontation that forces their past relationship to the surface. From the trailers and press releases we know they were lovers who were forced to part. They meet again in the present day and have to overcome not only the past, but their altered personalities. Truth be told, I'm not quite sure what their personalities are in the present because they are all over the place. I'm more curious to see howSuzyperforms than I am in the story at this point. Compared to the beauty of the drama and the framing of the shots, it was lackluster. But it is only the first episode. I'll hold out to see what happens.

So, deadly disease? Check. Loan sharks? Check. Family strain? Check. Looks like we have everything we need to embark on aLee Kyeong-heedrama.
