This is my 4th Korean Drama and my first without Lee Min Ho. I will make this short and sweet cause I would hate it to be dragging like the drama itself.
Acting has more depth. Kim Woo Bin and Suzy Bae delivered a relatively powerful performance. I am actually comparing it to LMH’s Boys Over Flowers, The Heirs and Legend of the Blue Sea, which are all comedy-drama ish, where not too much depth is required. I was expecting a sub par acting from Suzy but she amazingly acted well especially the heavy scenes. Cheers to the director.
Plot formula: Dashing rich actor with terminal sickness reconnects with high school girl crush who has serious financial problems and family issues. Guy pursues the girl then girl falls in love then guy holds back feelings but solves girl’s problems then guy reconnects with estranged mom then guy gets sicker and then, finally, he dies (implied).
The drama attempts at instilling conscience and owning up and justice intertwined with a doom-to-end love story. It started interestingly but towards the end, the story became fragmented. It ended with many loose ends. I actually became confused why it was entitled Uncontrollaby Fond.
In a range of 1 to 5 stars with 1 as boo and 5 as recommended. I will give it 4. I am witholding 1 for the plot issue. 🤓
Kim Woo Bin is a total eye candy. ♥️💋
