[DRAMA] BIG: An awesome ride on a Hong Sister’s drama

BIG. Yeah – I didn’t have time to write a post on it – because I was too busy enjoying the drama by myself. HAHA.

Just thought I’ll pop by and do a short write-up on the currently airing Mon-Tue drama, BIG. BIG is written by the Hong Sisters (Some of their works: My Girl, Hong Gil Dong, You’re Beautiful, My girlfriend is a gumiho, The Greatest Love).

One word. Refreshing.

BIG feels like an entirely different drama – it’s like a totally different style. And I like it. A lot. They still tease us here & there – but it feels mature, less comedy & not exaggerated like most of their other works.

BIG tells us about Kang Kyung Joon (Shin Won Ho – original/ Gong Yoo – body) who gets trapped in Seo Yoon Jae’s (Gong Yoo) body after a car accident involving both of them. To complicate matters, Seo Yoon Jae is Gil Da Ran’s (Lee Min Jung) fiance and the teacher of Kang Kyung Joon.

Gil Da Ran is about to get married to Seo Yoon Jae – whom she met at a wedding where she was delivering flowers to. She was upset that Yoon Jae is always busy and doesn’t have time for their wedding preparations. She asks Yoon Jae for an answer as to whether or not he loves her. Kang Kyung Joon brings her to a place and leaves her there when Yoon Jae calls her up to tell her his answer. However, on his way to meet Da Ran, he got into a car accident together with Kang Kyung Joon who was on his way back.

Kang Kyung Joon woke up to find himself in Seo Yoon Jae’s body, and his own body in a comatose state.

That’s the background of the story.

Right now, the story has developed quite a lot – and I’m loving the twist & turns they’re giving us. Just when I thought they’re going to give us something makjang – they gave me a twist I never thought of. It’s interesting – because I don’t know what to expect next, but I can just sit back and enjoy the drama.

I love the character Kang Kyung Joon.

Gong Yoo is awesome at portraying both Yoon Jae & Kyung Joon. Though both characters have such different personalities, it’s really great acting on Gong Yoo’s part. Every time I see him, I would think him as Kang Kyung Joon, not Yoon Jae. Despite the face & body – I see Shin Won Ha/Kang Kyung Joon in him.

Right now, Yoon Jae is still a mystery. We have no clues about him at all. While I’m falling for Kyung Joon harder & harder, I’m also getting more & more curious about Yoon Jae. What’s their connection? The reason for the switch?

The most important part. Will Gil Da Ran end up with Yoon Jae or Kyung Joon…??? She’s definitely falling in love with Kyung Joon, but we’re still unsure of Yoon Jae. They may give us another twist along the way. The wait for every episode is killing me seriously.

I do hope she ends up with Kyung Joon – because right now, I’m just so in love with Kyung Joon, and we would have to give Gong Yoo credit for that.

  1. I’m currently watching this. I absolutely agree with your comment that this is different for the Hong sisters, but in the best possible way. Big will likely be my favorite drama from them.
