"Uncontrollably Fond" Episode 2

"Uncontrollably Fond" Episode 2

The dark past is unveiled, at least partially, in episode number 2 of"Uncontrollably Fond"that sat prettily atop the drama ranks at 12.5%, matching the first episode's rating.No Euland Joon-yeong in their high school years are those who have not: they lack power, money, and influence, three assets that their opponents have in abundance.

A complex web of family relations, payoffs, deals, loans sharks, and emotional agony was woven duringNo Eul's and Joon-yeong's high school years.No Eul's father is fatally injured byYoon Jeong-eun(Lim Joo-eun) in a hit-and-run whose family has the money and influence to buy Assemblyman Choi's legal support to make the incident disappear. We momentarily meet Jeong-eun, but focus more on the heavy loan shark debt, parentless home, and sadness ofNo Euland her brother No Jik. Before the incident,No Eulwas helpful and kindhearted unlike her current incarnation, which is pandering, ruthless, and fatigued from life.

Joon-yeong, likeNo Eul, is impoverished with a single-parent home. He lacks direction that he finds when he discovers that Assemblyman Choi may be his father. He wants to become a prosecutor like him, studies furiously, and drastically improves his scores. While he does this, girls and entertainment agencies fling themselves at him. It is when an apatheticNo Eulapproaches him that he shows interest, albeit a morbid interest. Their relationship progresses in an odd manner. It is antagonistic with an air of curiosity. Before it can develop,No Euland her brother escape town to flee loan sharks, leaving Joon-yeong worried and empathetic. This is a trait that carries through to his present day self although it is greatly hidden by arrogance. Still, I wish the character definitions were a bit clearer. I wonder if he discovers Assembleyman Choi isn't as upright as he portrays to the public and casts of his dreams of becoming a prosecutor to become an entertainer.

The ending of the episode brings the show back to nearly the same moment in time where episode 1 found its end. Episode 2 moves a step further, but only just that. It's a great move to render intrigue, but doing it again would be repetitive and tiresome.

Suzy is doing a good job in her role. The teenage attitude, the angst over death, and the determination are well-portrayed. What I worry most about is when the chemistry builds betweenNo Euland Joon-yeong. I also worry about the strange tonal shifts found all over the episode, although as an episode, this episode was much stronger than the first. Joon-yeong's character is hard to fathom, butKim Woo-bindoes well with making the character multi-faceted.

Until next week we wait and hope that the past and characters will clear up.
