Kim Woo Bin and Suzy showed how they are working hard amid the ratings struggle of their show, Uncontrollably Fond. A series of BTS pictures released by the people behind the KBS series featured the cast on set.
The romantic drama stars Kim Woo Bin as an arrogant celebrity named Shin Joon Young. He plays the love interest of an independent yet weird documentary producer named No Eul, played by Suzy Bae.
The unguarded on-set snapshots showed the two stars concentrating on memorizing their lines. Co-stars Lim Joo Eun and Lim Ju Hwan were also in the Uncontrollably Fond BTS photos.
A member of the production team explained the candid images. “Kim Woo Bin, Suzy, Lim Ju Hwan, and Lim Joo Eun never took their eyes off the scripts no matter what the situation,? the rep said. ?The actors’ extraordinary, fervent zeal was the main force to creating a more beloved drama.”
