Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 17 Recap

UncontrollablyFond_17_35

FINALLY we’re getting somewhere! Of course, it happens in the last fifteen minutes of the show, but I’ll take it! I actually felt my heart race again for Joon Young, which had disappeared for quite a while. I like it when he is cool – without having to act cool.

Train to Busan: A Review

Like zombies? Check. Like action flicks? Check. Like Gong Yoo? Check check check. You must now watch Train to Busan. Now. This is the real summer disaster/action flick that you need to see before autumn rolls around. For once, I’m not going to spoil anything about this film because I want you to watch it.

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 16 Recap

UncontrollablyFond_16_25

So, some progress. But ohmigod this week is just dragging its feet! I can’t be fully satisfied with this week’s episodes, and can only wish that this series were only 16 episodes or 18 episodes long. By being 20 episodes, the writer is really forcing us as viewers to dwell in the feelings of all the characters. The problem is, what if we stop caring about these characters? All we want is the story to move along faster.

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 13 Recap

So we’re gonna jump around in the timeline a bit because there were a lot of questions that I had after episode 12, and it seems the writer decided it’s time to fill in some gaps. Not that the gaps were terribly hard to figure out anyways. There’s also some movement in No Eul and Joon Young’s romance, as we see just how far they will go to protect their feelings for each other.

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 12 Recap

Somewhere along the line in this episode, I felt like I missed something. As if the writer was in such a rush to get to the next phase of the drama when previously, she was taking her time and unfolding the story bit by bit. There were parts where I did celebrate the progress, but I was mostly left scratching my head. In any case, much happens in episode 12. Almost too much.

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 11 Recap

Man this was a beautiful episode. And I don’t mean it in the plot sense – plot wise, it was pretty straightforward and slow. No, I mean it was cinematically beeeeyouuuuuteefulllll. I mean, in the levels of I was lusting over the lighting and slow camera close-ups. (Let me just add that I don’t watch previews of dramas so I have no idea what’s upcoming in this show.)

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 9 Recap

UncontrollablyFond_09_01

What a fun episode! I am getting even more addicted to this drama now. There are moments of frustration where I wanted to yell at the characters and say, “SPEAK! JUST TELL THE TRUTH!” But there was plenty of cute as well – including an adorable kitten! (Edit: Now with pictures! -kae)
