[Kdrama Focus] Big ~


Big and I love Lee Tae Ri are the two newest Kdramas I started watching and I'm looking forward to each episode! Both focus on a young boy finding himself in the body of an adult and relating to an older woman but their approach is quite different.

Title: Big 빅 
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Comedy
Episodes: 16
Broadcasting: 2012 June 4 - 2012 July 24 (KBS2, every Monday + Tuesday 21.55)


Synopsis: Seo Yoon Jae (30) is a successful doctor and engaged to Gil Da Ran (26), a high school teacher. 18 year old Kang Kyung Joon is an exchange student in Gil Teacher's class. After an accident, Kang Kyung Joon's spirit inhabits Seo Yoon Jae's body and slowly finds himself attracted to Gil Teacher.  Jang Ma Ri, who has a crush on Kang Kyung Joon follows him to Korea and tries to escape his spirit from Seo Yoon Jae's body.

btw this isn't a drama recap, I just randomly introduce dramas I'm watching and offer you my personal opinion. For professional drama recaps (with spoilers) visit dramabeans.

Since the drama just started and is still airing all I write are early impressions but I have to admit that I'm quite in love with this drama. As expected, Hong Sisters drama never disappoint me. ;3
I love "Gil Teacher"'s haircut! 



I wasn't a big fan of Gong Yoo in The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince (although I loved watching his gay-struggles xD) but I really like his acting in this drama. The scenes between  "Gil Teacher" and him acting like a 18 year old are hilarious!
I'm pretty curious how the relationship between the two is going to evolve; totally rooting for them! I specially like the way he tries to protect her from knowing about her fiancé's ugly side. Although thinking that he's only 18, the age gap might be a bit too much, despite him being quite mature for his age. Maybe "Gil Teacher" is a bit immature (and innocent) for her age? I'd let them wait for 4+ years and then it might work out. Aja! 



Ah... of course I'm also wondering about the relationship between Seo Yoon Jae and Kang Kyung Joon... are they siblings? ö_ö''

After watching episode 6 I have to admit that the storyline is getting better and better. It's easier to relate to both Gil Teacher and Kang Kyung Joon and I love how he slowly gets used to the 30year old body but keeps it fresh and sassy with his 19 year old self. He's cooler than ever!

Although I can't warm up to Suzy's (Jang Ma Ri) acting I love, love her fashion style. Her style is colorful and well put-together. Here's a small feature of the outfits she has been wearing:




Have you started watching this drama? 
How do you feel about the (mental) age gap between the two main leads?
