Big First Impressions

Having only watched one Hong Sisters’ drama prior to this, I’m less skeptical unlike most fans. There were a lot of people who said that Big doesn’t follow their usual Hong Sister drama structure. I’ve heard that their dramas are also either a hit or a miss. So which one do you think it is? 

Expectations: Moderate

Verdict: A BIG hit!

Summary: Gil Da Ran recounts how she and her fiancee Yoon Jae ended up with each other. Then flash forward to the future where she meets exchange student Kang Kyung Joon in an umbrella encounter. After a bad day and being made fun of in school, Da Ran felt depressed and confronted Yoon Jae about his feelings. Kyung Joon brings her out to the river to cheer her up. On the way to the river, Yoon Jae and Kyung Joon meets an accident that switches the two souls. Naturally, the next day it’s all about the adjustment period. We’re given the background of each character and is shown some mysteries to keep us hooked for the next 16 episodes.

Thoughts: I’m loving every minute of it! And it’s not just because of the powerhouse cast. The story is amazing. I was thinking Freaky Friday or Secret Garden kind of hijinks, but this is better. I like how all the characters have emotional ground that they need to work on, which we’ll have time later to develop. I like how it’s funny but not being forceful. There’s so much cute that is emphasized with good music choices. If I had to say anything bad about this whole experience, it’s the rather jerky editing and overly aegyo voice of Lee Min Jung. But I can overlook that seeing how everything else is very pleasant.

Initial Rating: 9.5 /10 (Seriously the recent dramas are plain love)
