Title: Big

Genre: Comedy / Romance

Episodes: 16

Gil Da Ran delivers a bouquet of flowers to a wedding which turns out to be the wedding of her friend Min Joo. Da Ran wasn’t invited by her friend because she haven’t passed the exams to become a teacher. When Da Ran was eating she got a call saying the bouquet she brought was switched. So to get back the bouquet from Min Joo she stayed at the wedding and wait for the tossing of bouquet. But unfortunately she got to an accident when catching it but instead she met her fiance Seo Yoon Jae.

Da Ran rode a bus while listening to a radio program where she sent her story on how she met Yoon Jae when a high school guy, Kang Kyung Joon, was intently looking at her. She thought that Kyung Joon likes her but actually Kyung Joon just followed her off the bus to get his umbrella which was switched to Da Ran’s umbrella. Kyung Joon and Da Ran met again in the school where Da Ran was a substitute teacher. Da Ran was shocked to know that Kyung Joon was the new exchange student.

A month before the wedding Yoon Jae became cold towards Da Ran which made Da Ran very sad. Yoon Jae and Kyung Joon got into a fateful accident and the two of them fell into the deep water. Yoon Jae tried to saved Kyung Joon. The two of them were then rushed to the hospital. Yoon Jae died and Kyung Joon was in the state of coma. Da Ran rushed to the hospital and breakdown on the way to the morgue to see Yoon Jae. But a miracle happened when Kyung Joon woke up in the body of Yoon Jae.

The story is very impressive as expected from Hong sisters who wrote this drama. The mysteries of each character will be revealed along the story. One thing that disappoints me was the ending. I am a fan of Hong sisters works and by far this series ending was my least favorite. Most Korean series have open ended stories but this one is the worst. Its just sad that a beautifully created drama with full package of stars has a poorly created ending.

My favorite part (Episode 6) 🙂

One of the reason that attracted me to watch this series is because of the actors. Admit it if the main casts are attractive it will be a plus for the series. Lee Min Jung portrayed Gil Da Ran, I have watched some of her works before and I can say I am a fan. Since I have seen her from good and bad roles I can say she deserved an applaud for her acting.

Gong Yoo portrayed Yoon Jae and Kyung Joon (trapped in Yoo Jae’s body). This is his comeback in Korean series after Coffee Prince and after serving the military. I was very convinced with his portrayal of Kyung Joon trapped in Yoon Jae’s body. Plus he looks so freaking hot oh my poor fan girl heart.

Shin Won Ho is Kang Kyung Joon. This is a big break for him even though he didn’t have much airtime but still his role is very significant. He is a part of a boy group named Cross Gene. I see future for him as an actor so I hope to see him in other Korean Series.

Bae Suzy or Suzy from the girl group Miss A portrayed Jang Ma Ri a childhood friend of Kang Kyung Joon from America and who follows Kyung Joon everywhere because she loves him. I have no doubt about Suzy’s acting because I have seen her in Dream High and I can say the girl has a future in acting.

Other characters are also interesting just like Da Ran’s family specially Gil Choong Sik. My OTP is Choong Sik and Ma Ri.

Overall I like the casting and the story but I was super disappointed with the ending so I will give this an 8.5. It was supposed to be a 10 but the ending is the most important part in a story and since it was poorly created it has a big effect on the story.

Rating: 8.5/10
