If this prime real estate on the side of KBS headquarters is any indication, the network is really really banking big on upcoming summer drama Uncontrollably Fond. It will be entertaining to watch the drama air in the dead muggy summer nights when nearly every expected scene shows the leads wrapped in coats, scarves and jackets, since the drama was filmed from early to late winter for a fully pre-produced production.
It’s now only two months out before Uncontrollably Fond airs on Wed-Thurs in early July, following Master: God of Noodles. Starring Kim Woo Bin, Suzy, Im Joo Hwan, and Im Joo Eun. none of the four leads are coming on recent buzzy projects, but Kim Woo Bin and Suzy remain big CF stars in Korea and well known faces to the domestic public. It’s going to be interesting to see if audiences tune in for their pairing, along with there being an appetite for a classic Lee Kyung Hee penned melodrama with the three act structure of childhood meeting, adult conflict, and eventual reconciliation.
