When I make visual associations between dramas it’s almost never a qualitative discussion and all due to a scene, image, or set up that jars my memory so vividly. Case in point the latest set of drama stills from Uncontrollably Fond showing Kim Woo Bin and Suzy in high school uniforms, with her holding a giant stuffed animal and him with his arms over her shoulders.
I immediately screamed out Heirs, and for two combination associations – the big stuffed animal, a bear here and a green owl in Heirs, being carried by a high school girl, and of course smirky Kim Woo Bin in a high school uniform being all no personal space with a girl and draping himself over her. I’m fairly certain writer Lee Kyung Hee wasn’t trying to imitate or parody Heirs but recapping that drama makes me so aware of scenes from it it’s hard not to make the connection. Still, I can’t wait for UF and at least Kim Woo Bin gets the girl this time.
