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 Spy, What’s Up). She plays Yoon-jae’s ex-girlfriend who works at the same hospital.
