Big - Korean Drama 2012

Updated on October 13, 2014

Hong Sisters are back with their newest romantic-comedy drama piece - soul-switching drama

I'm so ready to bid goodbye to spring dramas and say hello to summer dramas.

One summer drama which I'm really looking for is the romantic-comedy drama "Big".

The BTS pictures which showed a successful doctor acts like a 18 year old sold me. Should I root for the fiancée or the girlfriend? And maybe the drama will lead me to root for the soul & the fiancée to be together, instead of the body & the fiancée to be together. It's confusing, I know. :D

Written by Hong Sisters who penned Best Love, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, My Girl, etc, this newest romantic comedy drama aired its pilot episode in Korea after Love Rain finished.

The casts are solid: Gong Yoo (his comeback in the tv dramaland after 5 years), gorgeous Lee Min Jung and Miss A Suzy who has received rave reviews about her acting abilities. Gong Yoo will be playing double roles (as 18 and 30 years old).

The questions on my mind:

How will Ma Ri know that Yoon Jae has the soul of her boyfriend?

What will Da Ran do when she knows that her fiancée has someone else' soul?

What will a soul of 18 year old do with Yoon Jae's body? Considering he's a doctor, hope he won't have any fatal mistake with his patients.

And will Ma Ri successfully return the Kyung Joon's soul back to Kyung Joon's body?

Knowing Hong Sisters, they will definitely make this as quirky as they can. My expectations for this romantic comedy drama is high.

I am shipping Da Ran & Kyung Joon / Kyung Joon's soul in Yoon Jae's body. Their age gap is 8 years old (Da Ran is 26, while Kyung Joon is 18), and their chemistry is already palpable. Can't wait to see their love journey and the love triangle between Da Ran, Kyung Joon (and his soul) and Ma Ri.

Brief Synopsis

Seo Yoon Jae [30 years old] (played by Gong Yoo) is a well-loved pediatrician and is engaged to 26 year old high school teacher, Gil Da Ran (played by Lee Min Jung). They are currently planning for their wedding, however, Yoon Jae is always busy and hardly has any time for Da Ran. Yoon Jae's ex-girlfriend is Lee Se Young [30 years old] (played by Jang Hee Jin).

Da Ran first met with Kang Kyung Joon [18 years old] (played by Shin Won Ho) on the bus while they're on the way to school. Da Ran took Kyung Joon's umbrella and decided to walk together to the school. She then found out that Kyung Joon is one of her new student.

Kyung Joon moved back to Korea after living in the States and his mom has recently passed away.

One fateful day, both Kyung Joon and Yoon Jae drowned in the lake as they were trying to avoid road accidents. Yoon Jae was trapped in his car but still conscious and was able to open his car door. He saw unconscious Kyung Joon drowning and as he tried to grab his hands, mysterious thing happened.

Hours later, Yoon Jae was pronounced death while Kyung Joon was still unconscious. But then, Kyung Joon woke up in Yoon Jae's body! So it seems like their souls switched during their collision / when they hold hand in the water. He told Da Ran immediately that he's indeed Kyung Joon.

Jang Ma Ri [18 years old] (played by Bae Suzy) likes Kyung Joon. So she's trying her hardest to switch Kyung Joon's soul back to Kyung Joon's body.
