Uncontrollably Fond (Hangul함부로 애틋하게; RRHamburo Aeteuthage), alternatively titled Lightly, Ardently is a South Korean television series starring Kim Woo-bin and Bae Suzy.[1][2][3][4][5] It aired on KBS2's Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21:55 KST from July 6 to September 8, 2016.[6][7][8]

While the audience ratings for the drama fell below expectations locally, it was well-received across Asia. In China, it streamed on Youku simultaneously with South Korea's broadcast and has reached more than 4 billion cumulative views, making it the site's most viewed Korean drama.[7][9]

Synopsis[edit]

Shin Joon-young (Kim Woo-bin) and Noh Eul (Bae Suzy) were classmates who were separated during their teenage years due to an ill-fated relationship, but later meet each other in adulthood. Shin Joon-young is now a top actor-singer while Noh Eul is a documentary producer.

Noh Eul had a tough childhood; her father died in a hit-and-run prompting Noh Eul to quit school and make a living for herself and her brother. Shin Joon-young, on the other hand, had his life planned out for him. His mother wanted him to become a prosecutor to follow the footsteps of his estranged father, but an awful incident caused him to quit law school and become a singer-actor. The two reunite when Noh Eul is tasked to film Shin Joon-young's documentary. Joon-young initially gives Noh Eul a miserable time before finally agreeing to do the documentary and even plans to win her heart back.
