Uncontrollably Fond: South Korean Drama Series Review

Posted on at

Hello bitlanders! I am back with another Korean Drama Review. I decided to make a review about this Television Series entitled "Uncontrollably Fond" because the Male Lead of this drama who is Kim Woo Bin has a similar situation in the drama and that is having a cancer :'( I watched this drama months ago already, since this drama was aired I kept track of this drama. Honestly, while watching the drama i cried on most of the episodes because of the flow of the story. The story is very sad and touching especially that the Main Lead has a similar situation in the Real life. When you watch this series I know you will get what I mean so please continue scrolling to read and to know the flow of the story. Enjoy! :D

There are many twists and turns in the drama so watch this series to know what will happen to Shin Joon Young and Noh Euls Life!



The very first scene of the Drama was Shin Joon-Young (played by Kim Woo-Bin) and a Lady named hand in hand inside a Church. Shin Joon-Young vowed that the lady beside him will be his wife, and that he will live and love the lady what ever happens and will never let go of the lady's hand no matter what but minutes later a group of suited man came inside the church looking for the two of them.

When they entered the church the man on the center said "Hey Traitor! How dare you steal our boss's woman with no fear?" then Shin Joon-Young replied "She was my woman from the start" after Shin Joon-Young young replied the man at the center ordered the others take care of him then they attacked him.

While he was fighting, the lady he loved cried seeing him with lots of blood and fighting just for her. After a while the guy holding the lady called Shin Joon-Young and fired the gun, then the bullet got straight to Shin Joon-Young's Chest.

When Shin Joon-Young was shot at his chest his tear fell down and the lady screamed. After a little while he walked straight to the Guy who fired the gun while walking towards the guy he was shot again but didn't even move like the bullet was nothing. When he was near the guy who shot him he stole the gun from the guys hand and directly said to the Camera "I don't want to Die.."

"I don't want to die, This isn't Hollywood you know. Does it make sense for someone to die from a gunshot in this age?" Shin Joon-Young said that directly to the camera and it turned out that they were only shooting a Drama (haha) After saying those words he left the staff and especially the Director was very shocked of what he did because the shoot was very nice already but he ruined it. Shin Joon-Young talked to the Director and the Director told him "The Fact that you die was decided from the very beginning" and Shin Joon-Young replied "I changed my mind about this. I can" die ike this no matter what. So please, Fix the Script" after saying that Shin Joon-Young left the scene.

There are so many twist and  turns in the plot of this drama especially in Shin Joon Young's Family and I cannot really explain it well so please watch the First episode to get it (hehe) The First episode of this series is one of the episodes that has many best parts of the drama so click this to watch the fist episode -> Uncontrollably Fond Episode 1

This part is where Shin Joon Young and Noh Eul fought  then suddenly Shin Joon Young Shouted...
