by | April 22, 2014 | 24 Comments
I’m a little surprised that the teasers for Big Man keep showing us funny scenes, but maybe this melodrama is less revengey than your average bear. Either that, or someone figured out that Kang Ji-hwan was wasted being dark and broody when he could be silly; imagine that. The trailer... More »
