Uncontrollably Fond is a South Korean television series starring Kim Woo-bin and Bae Suzy. Although it’s rating drastically went down locally, Asians loved this series. It streamed on Youku, making it the site’s most viewed Korean drama.
Shin Joon-young (Kim Woo-bin) and Noh Eul (Bae Suzy) were classmates but soon they got separated in their teenage life due to an ill-fated relationship.

She didn’t know when it might be the day that he completely forgets about her and the bond they shared because of the disease he’s suffering from, or it might be the day when it’ll the last time she’ll ever have him. But she tried to smile and keep up with him till the day he’s alive. Shin Joon-young too doesn’t want to leave her, his mom, alone, when everything he wanted in his life was with him but not time.
