The dichotomy of KBS drama Uncontrollably Fond is easy to explain but hard to quantify objectively. I love the drama but find both leads Kim Woo Bin and Suzy‘s acting woefully inconsistent and way to frequently comes across as them acting like themselves. So far their chemistry isn’t even all that great, he’s got better chemistry with Jin Kyung as his mom and his dog, and she’s sparking all over the place with second male lead Im Joo Hwan.
But then I am so invested in their characters getting a happy ending together, in that order, that none of the above quibbles matter and I’m so along for the narrative ride that screenwriter Lee Kyung Hee has cribbed up. Suzy’s character is made up all sorts of frumpy and unattractive but her simple facial beauty shines through and suits the character so well. Seeing her in the current edition of Grazia Magazine in a soft autumnal feel pictorial is a nice reminder of how much her looks pop when properly arrayed in starry luster.
