Why Everyone's Talking About Uncontrollably Fond

Brace yourself: This tearjerker series will make you cry your heart out


Despite this Korean drama airing many moons ago, Uncontrollably Fond is currently creating buzz online as it brings a new story for the viewers to share and navigate.  


The romance melodrama revolves around a famous actor, Shin Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) and a documentary producer, Noh Eul (Bae Suzy), who, during their teenage years, had a tough and painful split. The pair went on with their lives and as time passes, learned how to tame the pain, but once they bumped into each other, the sting emerges once more.


Not made for the faint of heart, “Uncontrollably Fond” features 20 episodes—each of which are heavy and heartbreaking. 


Are you ready to take the risk? Here are some reasons why this series is hot on social media at the moment: 


1. Kim Woo Bin and Bae Suzy have an intense on-screen chemistry.

It’s obvious—the iconic Kim Woo Bin and Bae Suzy are both visually stunning and are well-suited for their roles in the series. Together, they make quite the couple. They can easily stir up emotions and create an atmosphere that the audience can relate to, regardless of the situation. 


2. It has a superb storyline.

Apart from its A-list cast, Uncontrollably Fond lends insight into how one should live this short life of ours. It teaches us not to take things for granted, to grab every chance we can get of our loved ones’ time, and how to tackle the omnipresent struggles of someone whose life is like a ticking time bomb at best. 


3. The characters are all connected.

Through the secrets and tragedies encompassing each character and circumstance in Uncontrollably Fond, suffice to say, every person is entwined with each other and ends up connected to the other characters.


4. It has a good soundtrack. 

A great story requires music that will set the mood of the scene and the audience, and this series did just that. It is deepened by the songs that surround it, bringing more emotion and mental recall. Among its songs are New Empire’s “A Little Braver” and “Across the Ocean” and Midnight Youth’s “Golden Love.”


5. Uncontrollably Fond reflects life’s realities.

Some of the realities and lessons that this melodrama mirrors include social injustices, the sad truths of a terminal illness, our inevitable death, family feuds, and deep-seated regrets. It also reflects the anticlimactic ends that we sometimes encounter in life.
