This serial drama offers the great performance of the casts. They have got the great appreciations from the audience, especially for Woo Bin. The characters is so rich and full of story, while the supporting actor successfully adding the depth toward the plot. It’s an absolute amazing ride, with stories connected through secrets and tragedies. The intertwined between the plot also create another point. However, public expressed their sadness over the performance of Bae Suzy that was a bit “weak” than Kim Woo Bin who create another persona over the character he played. Another thing to add is that this drama is totally melancholic and has the break-heart-sad-lost ending. Still, Uncontrollably Fond will really be an enjoyment for those who love melancholic type of drama.
