Get ready for the water works, people, as Kyung Jae learns the cold hard truth on the upcoming episode of Big! Clearly we’re getting tears, plus plenty of anger and recriminations, all of which will be well-deserved coming from Kyung Joon towards his no-good parents. I’ve said before that I personally find the savior sibling phenomenon to be morally and ethically legit, as long as the parents love the new sibling in the same way they would had the sibling been conceived for any other reason. I actually don’t think Kyung Joon suffered at all growing up, he was loved by his surrogate mom who was wealthy enough to give him a pampered upbringing. Family isn’t about blood, it’s about love, and his surrogate mom loved him dearly and made sure he wanted for nothing. I think his real parents have to answer for their cruel and cavalier disregard for his existence, then and now. I hope that with Kyung Joon discovery about his relationship to the Seo family, and the reason for the soul switching, the truth about Kyung Jae’s current identity comes clean for everyone despite how unbelievable it is so that the drama can properly craft a resolution that rings true and sincerely deals with the themes it has raised.
According to the news article, Gong Yoo as Kyung Jae learns the truth about his parentage and the soul switch secret hidden in the Miracle book, thereby falling into a uncertainty. Despite Da Ran and Kyung Jae confirming their feelings for each other, and spending a happy birthday together, their happiness is short lived. Once Kyung Jae discovers the secrets, he falls into a heart breaking despair and confusion and uncertainty about his future. The filming has been non-step on this drama, and production team members saw how into character Gong Yoo was as Kyung Jae and worried for his stamina as he conveyed the tears and hurt felt by Kyung Jae. Before we saw happy and falling-in-love Kyung Jae, now we’re going to see the tearful and in pain Kyung Jae. Gong Yoo’s acting has been garnering praises from the media and even the production team expressed their admiration for how hard he worked and how incredible his acting was in playing two characters.
Viewers are asked to keep watching to see if the souls switch back, and whether Da Ran and Kyung Jae’s love can continue. It isn’t just Gong Yoo getting all the acclaim, as Lee Min Jung was recently written up for her really heart felt tearful performances in Big as seen in the picture above. I think both of them are rocking their roles, and Da Ran is really the harder character to play since she’s is not the sort of decisive and confident person viewers would prefer to see. I see this OTP as two people who really find comfort in each other, the sort of love that stems from affection and reliance. As opposed to Yoon Jae and Da Ran, which felt more like a relationship predicated on dreams and hopeful expectations. Speaking of Yoon Jae, I think Da Ran ended up in jail in the earlier set of spoiler stills because someone ratted her out on buying a birthday present for a man who is not her husband, hence she’s probably getting slapped on the hand for committing adultery, which is a crime in Korea. I’m getting flashbacks to Bad Love, LOL.
