I’m less allergic to prison themed shows/movies as I am super avoiding of war themed ones but for Lee Jong Seok I’m going to check out Big Mouth for sure, especially now that my other weekend drama has deteriorated to spinning in circles. In the second week of airing, the MBC Fri-Sat drama rose in ratings to 7.6% and 8.6% from the premiere week of 6.2% and 6.1%, and even more promising is the buzz is gathering for this thriller. I’m seeing a lot of posts about Lee Jong Seok’s leveled up again acting as well as growing curiosity over who is the mastermind Big Mouse that Lee Jong Seok’s character is accused of being. Could it be him for real, or one of the many interesting supporting characters around him. It’s nice to have another drama start to take off and this one is in a time slot to shine on the strength of good directing, acting, and script.
