…which sounds like terrible English, but is not. In this case, at least!
I know, there seems to be a TON of promo material about Big and maybe it’s veering on overload, and maybe I just want to see the damn show already instead of getting more stills. But then again, it’s not like I’m going to just NOT post them, am I? So here we go….
Posted above is the new character poster, featuring our Big star (hur hur—so many Big jokes, so little time) Gong Yoo in the center. Flanking him are his dual love interests, Lee Min-jung on the left as his grown-up fiancée, and Suzy as the teenager his body-hijacker loves.
Speaking of whom, Shin Won-ho is at right, as the 18-year-old soul that gets stuck in the Big body. (He’s a new face from Bachelor Vegetable Store and has been recently called a Song Joong-ki doppelganger, though I think he’s more like a cross between Song Joong-ki and L.) And at far left is Jang Hee-jin, who has never played a character I have liked (Myung-wol the Spy, What’s Up). I’m pretty sure it’s because of her, not her roles, but I’m willing to give her another shot in the midst of such winning castmates.
Then, above we have a couple of new stills of Gong Yoo, which basically reiterates the main sight gag and entire point of this show: Adult hottie playing the juvenile is both hot and adorable.
I mean, that’s essentially the point of all the character stills below, right? There are a few where Gong Yoo is dressed and posing as a normal-looking adult man (well, incredibly GOOD-looking, but normal), and then there are the rest that show him acting like a puppy-boy. He’s wearing a three-piece suit and hugging a Gundam action figure? Gah, that kills me. It’s like I’m all primed to bust a gut laughing, and I just need the actual show to push me over the edge. Make me laugh, Big! I’m all ready t’rip!
