I hope viewers aren’t writing off Big Man before it premieres. It’d be a shame to arrive DOA to do a myriad of factors – the lackluster lead-in from Full Sun, the two week break between Full Sun ending and Big Man starting to avoid an Empress Ki head-to-head, and the really wonky birth secret to steal a heart set up. I confess my love for Kang Ji Hwan completely counterbalances all the warning signs that this drama might be awful. That and a very vivid memory of how awful every preview and promotional material was for The King 2 Hearts and that baby turned out to be so awesome I still miss it in my sleep. I do like the two new drama posters better than the first two, it’s still not groundbreaking but at least it doesn’t immediately call to mind comparisons to other posters. I never thought Kang Ji Hwan and Jung So Min would be doing a drama together so there is no way in hell I’m going to miss it. They are parts of two of my favorite drama OTPs of all time – Kang Ji Hwan with Yoon Eun Hye in Lie to Me and Jung So Min with Kim Hyun Joong in Playful Kiss – and Eun Hye and Hyun Joong have already worked together on those early day Basic House ad campaigns it’s only fair Ji Hwan and So MIn get a twirl around to block to see if they have onscreen chemistry to burn as well. I also like Lee Da Hee and Daniel Choi well enough, so if it’s a main cast of two loves and two likes I’ve already felt like I hit the casting jackpot. The third teaser is out for the drama and I like it better than the first two. It has a more consistent feel even if it’s still bizarre that the story revolves around a chaebol family claiming orphan Kang Ji Hwan is their long-lost son in order to get him lined up for organ donation for their real son Daniel Choi who is suffering from heart failure. It’s a massive con for sure, but also one that screams impossible. Oh wells, I’m in it for the rich spoiled heiress Jung So Min falling for her fake newly acquired oppa Kang Ji Hwan. Can they be the OTP, pretty please drama gods?
