This drama started off so well. The cast was good and Gong Yoo was great at trying to act like a 18/19 year old while in a 30 year old body.
But after a while the drama started to drag on. I dealt with it because it wasn't as bad as other dramas and continued to watch. And after a few episodes the cliffhangers started to repeat themselves and were very predictable. read more The ending...oh god i don't know where to begin. This drama had the potential of having a very good ending, but obviously the Hong sisters didn't know what they were doing and I have never seen an ending so bad. i had big hopes for this drama and was let down big time.

another drama that I love which are hated by a lot of people, lol..XD
I'll give some justice to to it!!!!

MUST READ to those who haven't watch it:
when I first visit the page Big I was hesitant to watched it due to the negative comments about ending and the story but then I decided to give it a try. After watching the 1st ep BOOOOOM!!! I was like UH OH! read more I'm glad I watched this drama!!! the name itself says it all, its BIG that you should not miss!!

let me give you 5 reasons:
1. Pure love story
2. the flow of the story is smooth and interesting, it has it's "own" potential to make the viewers keep track on it, it's like a whole puzzle that you must complete to see how it will end.
3. it will make you LAUGH!!!! (i guarantee it to you ;)
4. The sloooowmo- moments )
I'm gonna miss this magnificent drama soooooo much!! :(

When the clock strikes to 10:10 you'll definitely remember this drama!! curious? then gooo watch it now so you can relate :>

PS: I hope my review removes your hesitation in watching the BIGGEST drama!:> why don't you give it a TRY like what I did :)

    so starting off this is not the kind of drama i usually watch but i came across it and i was bored so i gave it a try
    the first half was super cute Kang Kyung Joon is a very nice character you get to learn about him and his past and of course Gong Yoon is very cute and played him well, Gil Da Ran on the other hand wasn't much of a character which is very typical of kdrama to not give the female lead much of depth or anything
    like everyone mentioned the first half was pretty nice and funny but as we go on it just boring and annoying...the ending is frustrating I WILL EXPLAIN IT ALL IN ANOTHER COMMENT

    Excellent until episode 4, one of the funniest drama I've seen to that point. But it went quickly downhill from there, losing the great comedy and becoming far too angsty and melodramatic. Ended up skipping the last 3 episodes and just caught the horrendous ending.

    I saw it all coming from the reviews and comments, knew it would turn to shit so I did not go in with high expectations and knew not to get attached to the story or any of the characters. So I still give this a fine 7/10 because of how much I enjoyed the first few episodes, it was worth the watch for me.

      Thanks kingsqueen. I happened to watch one of the episodes when it was aired in Singapore TV station last year. Found it interesting but was a bit hesitate after I got to know the rough story. She schemes to win back her ex-husband after learning of his success. Is it all about her role? or she is actually not that mean?

      Haha, i guess it was a bad plot summary. Thanks for the clarification!
      I recommend you to try All About My Romance, a political romance comedy if you have not.. Many would stop when they heard 'politics' but seriously, don't let the politics keep you away :)

      LOL - one of my other friends beat you to it. He made me watch it months ago. Politics really isn't my thing, but it wasn't a bad show at all. :)

    I marathoned this show to fill my void of Gong Yoo while waiting for Goblin. Must I say, I am not disappointed at all, and for the ending, I still think it's okay and not that bad (while everyone hates it)

      I'm in this club too! :D Started it after Goblin, because of Gong Yoo. But I'm still at ep. 8. Everyone said the ending will be disappointing, so I guess I know what will happen...

      Hi Gong Yoo lovers...you should watch his movie 'a man and a woman'. Its sad story but sure it makes me drool and satisfied watching him.

    I came in reading the ending since people were so frustrated so nothing was surprising to me. Loved everything in the first half (the comedy bit) and the second half got boring. I watched this for Gong Yoo as a filler till Goblin on Friday and honestly, he's the only one who carried this entire show. It's worth a watch if you're bored since the first bit is super cute but just know the ending so you're not frustrated later on.

    All the people talking shit about it. This is a remake of a Hollywood movie "Big" with Tom Hanks.
