    I still haven't had the time to watch UF but I'm hooked on W at the moment.. xD So I'm pretty happy about this.. lol Lee Jong Suk's acting skills are so good and the drama is so interesting.. it's unique, I never saw something like it before. Ah it's been a while since I was so much into a drama.. I can't wait for more! :DI'll definitely watch UF soon too.. I love Kim Woo Bin so much too! :)♥

    This drama has such an amazing story line but I can't help but feel like it was inspired by Drama World which I loved even though it obviously didn't have a great budget, they did a lot with a little. I feel like this drama is taking Drama World where it should have and could have gone and then some. This story is so amazing, I'm excited for every second of it. And apparently I love the writers' style because I love nine times time travel and queen in-hyeon's man. Honestly, I have to say this drama is damn near perfect at the moment. Def has the potential to beat king2hearts which to me is the best all round drama ever.

    It's a good thing that W made it to the top but I still prefer UF. I guess we all have our own preferences. Congratulations to both production teams for keeping both stories interesting. :)

    W's storyline is unlike any drama I've watched before. LJK's acting is to die for (per usual) and HHJ is as charming as ever. Can't wait to see how the plot unfolds! Fan of Kim Woo Bin, but Uncontrollably is a little lacking for me

    I already stopped watching UF. It has become incredibly boring these days -.- and honestly i think suzy's acting is a bit awkward. W is better compared to UF. This is my personal opinion no offense to UF's fans.
