A place where we critique K-pop and what not :D or at least try to…
Summer’s FINALLY here! I’m free and getting down to enjoying some dramas from summer’s awesome new lineup. Thought I’d give you a little review of what some of these are like.
Well, this one’s called ‘Big’. All you Coffee Prince fans are probably checking it out cause of Gong Yoo, while I, the horrid person who never watched Coffee Prince is watching it because I really adore Lee Min Jung Add Suzy and cutie Shin Won-ho to the list and voila! Here’s a drama anyone would want to watch. (side info: Shin Won-ho is debuting in the band Cross Gene!)
But let’s get to the main story now. The drama starts off a bit funny and excessively exaggerated, what with Da Ran (Lee Min Jung) falling down the stairs and all. The beginning is sort of a blur but we understand pretty much that this aspiring teacher is about to get married to Seo Yun Jae (Gong Yoo), the doctor who, well healed her after her little accident. Into the picture comes a transfer student, Kang Gyung Joon, who just came back from America. His past hold some secrets, but all we get to know is that he’s an orphan and is now living on his mom’s inheritance. There’s also some mystery as to how his mom died. These things will probably be revealed as the drama moves along.
The main crux of this drama, however is the big switching of souls. Now, we don’t yet know what exactly happens but an accident between Seo Yun Jae and Gan Gyung Joon causes their souls to be switched with Gyung Joon waking up as Yun Jae and Yun Jae still unconscious(hopefully inside Gyung Joon’s body). This soul-switching is yet to cause major chaos – with Yun Jae’s secrets being revealed and Gyung Joon understanding what his aunt and uncle really care about.
There definitely is a huge storyline about to reveal itself here, like why the souls switched and all but along with all that, this drama is super hilarious; Gyung Joon trying to fit in as Yun Jae and the entire Gil family trying to make sense of this future son-in-law really make this drama very enjoyable. Gong Yoo’s acting as an 18 year old is quite commendable, cute and really makes me want to continue watching this drama! And hey, Suzy’s about to make her entrance in the third episode, so I’m definitely making time for this drama. You should too!
