UNCONTROLLABLY FOND -- EPISODE 3



er...Nice makeup

Joon Young drops Noh Eul off at the hospital while he parties at a bar. She's driven home only to discover her stuff being confiscated by loan sharks. Joon Young leaves the party and finds her, spins her around, and magically it's 2011. She's defacing political posters, which is a crime. He agrees not to turn her in if she dates him. Amusingly, the candidate she hates is Joon Young's estranged father. After some cute scenes showing their forced relationship, he pulls a prank where he steals her purse. It goes awry, as she's hit by a car while chasing him and almost dies. Back in 2016, he agrees to film the documentary...

Well, I did say I wanted to find out what happened during those years. Now we know. And what a ride! I'm officially impressed. It just seemed like a long time getting to this point. I'm not sure what other people saw in this drama initially. It seemed plodding, confusing, and lacking much of a story. It's finally getting good.


I wonder how much she has on her...

I think Noh Eul has to be one of the unluckiest characters in history. She gets fired from her job, loan sharks take her stuff, she has no place to live (the thugs took her deposit), she collapses in the snow, and got hit by a car. Next we'll find out she has amnesia and an incurable disease. Oh, wait...

Joon Young is a lot more complex than I gave him credit for. He was actually studying for a law degree and he does love his mom, which puzzles me about her cruel treatment. It's like she's punishing him for not being able to pass the bar. Even if he didn't end up a prosecutor like his mom hoped, he is a Hallyu star. Success is the best revenge.



This drama supposed to be a romance, but I'm seeing precious little of that. Other than the fake relationship this episode and there was none of that. I think something's brewing though because Joon Young said he could not get her out of his head. And the melodramatic elements were actually well filmed. I didn't get overly depressed or bored, I felt bad for the characters.

It is kinda crazy how often Noh Eul gets laid out. In three episodes, she's gone unconscious twice. I wonder if we'll be seeing her in the hospital as much now that she actually has a job?  Watch: next she'll get in an accident with a runaway Zamboni.

I'm still on board, now that the drama has actually gotten good.

Score

Plot........................8

OVERALL............8.0

it sucks for me cause they're a good pair but i'm not feeling it. if you're a fan of tragic love stories and cliche couple moments you'll probably love it but if you value aesthetics this drama doesnt have it. if it's not for kim woo bin and suzy i wouldnt wanna continue watching

You should try to watch it until ep 3 or 4. I totally fell in love with this drama. At first I didn't like this drama. When I watched eps 1 and 2 I feel like it's really disappointing. It wouldn't hurt to try ~
