Hong Sisters’ Big (UPDATED)

This one is definitely on my watchlist. This is another of the five dramas I’m anticipating for June. Big is set to air in KBS on June 4 after Love Rain in the Mon-Tues timeslot.

Big is the body-swapping Hong Sisters romantic comedy. The Hong sisters are the popular dynamic duo behind dramas like You’re Beautiful, My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, and Best Love — not to be confused with the other Hong siblings who are writing Lee Seung-gi and Ha Ji-won’s The King 2 Hearts.

The plot is about two male characters’ bodies changing overnight. The 18-year-old Kang Kyung-joon (Shin Won-ho) gets into an accident and his soul enters the body of 30-year old doctor, Seo Yoon-jae (Gong Yoo). But adult Yoon-jae has a fiancée (Lee Min-jung) who finds herself in a predicament when her fiancé suddenly isn’t her fiancé anymore. She gets pulled into a love triangle, as her “possessed” fiance falls in love with a younger woman, Jang Mari (Suzy). For more info, check out their official website.


Gong Yoo (Coffee Prince, The Crucible). He plays 30-year old Doctor Seo Yoon-jae, who’s described as the warm, perfect boy next door type. He has a fiancée, played by Lee Min Jung.


Lee Min Jung (Cyrano Dating Agency, Wonderful Radio). She plays Gil Da Ran, a high school teacher with a fiery behavior and a sporty personality. She is engaged to Doctor Seo Yeon Jae.

Suzy (Dream High, Introduction to Architecture). She plays the Jang Mari, the teenage girl that our teenage hero has a crush on. She is constantly texts, chasing the whereabouts of her boyfriend 18-year-old Kang Gyung Joon. She was staying in the US and upon returning home, blind to the fact about the soul-swap. Suzy doesn’t appear until episode 3 though.

Shin Won-ho (Bachelor’s Vegetable Store). He plays Kang Kyung-joon, Lee Min Jung’s trouble-making high school student. He has perpetually low grades and finds himself constant trouble. Then Suzy comes to his school as a transfer student from the U.S. and it’s love at first sight, and he becomes her devoted, pure-hearted admirer.

Jang Hee-jin (Myung-wol the SpyWhat’s Up). She plays Yoon-jae’s ex-girlfriend who works at the same hospital.
