I don't think I'm a very demanding drama-watcher. I just want a few simple things from a show: a plot that interests me, characters that I can relate to or understand, and a more than just cute romance to keep me interested. Most of all, I want an ending, not necessarily even a happy one, but one that clears out the misunderstandings and answers the main questions the drama has made us ask all throughout. But these are exactly the reasons why Big disappoints me. Big time.
It is like a nicely decorated Christmas present – looks pretty on the outside, but when you unwrap it you find nothing but another pair of socks. It just barely qualifies as gift, but if you had the chance of exchanging it for something better, you wouldn't even think twice. The same with Big.
Young and bumbling teacher Gil Da Ran (Lee Min Jung) is engaged to handsome doctor Seo Yoon Jae (Gong Yoo), spending most of her days dreaming about their future life together.
However, when Da Ran notices that Yoon Jae's behaviour before the wedding is distant, she starts doubting his feelings for her, asking him if he really loves her. On his way to give her an answer, Yoon Jae gets into a car accident with Kang Kyung Joon (Shin Won Ho), the new student in Da Ran's school. Both are taken to hospital and Da Ran is told that Yoon Jae couldn't be saved. Devastated Da Ran cries in the hallway when she suddenly sees Yoon Jae in front of him, alive and well.
But Da Ran realizes that things are far from what they seem when the first words to come out of Yoon Jae's mouth are: "Teacher. I'm… Kang Kyung Joon."
SPOILER ALERT! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
