by | September 16, 2014 | 73 Comments
Daniel Choi was the name first bandied about to headline the legal drama Pride and Prejudice (which would have reteamed him with the writer of School 2013), but now it’s Choi Jin-hyuk (Fated To Love You, Emergency Couple) in talks to step into the lead’s shoes instead. Some stories state that he’s confirmed while others... More »

Daniel Choi offered leading role in Pride and Prejudice
by | September 3, 2014 | 78 Comments
Okay, so first things first: There’s a new drama called Pride and Prejudice. Sadly, it has nothing to do with Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, though maybe that’s a happy thing? Granted, if you’re wooing Daniel Choi (Big Man, School 2013) to star, you kind of make me want to see him be a Darcy.... More »

Thankfully this is a movie, because I don’t know how many more cop dramas I can watch in one year, and with this cast I’d have to watch. Sohn Hyun-joo (Three Days) will be returning to the big screen to headline a detective thriller for his next project, and Daniel Choi (Big Man) has signed... More »

Big Man: Episode 1
by | April 29, 2014 | 69 Comments
Next up for our melodramatic pleasure, Big Man premiered on KBS this week, taking the usual “I want your heart” phrase to a very literal degree. The show’s premise is like crossing your classic rags-to-riches fairytale with a medical nightmare with a chaebol group after your actual ticker. They say that revenge can sometimes take... More »

Pre-revenge happy days in store for Big Man
by | April 22, 2014 | 28 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 below is a lot like... More »

The con gets going for KBS’s Big Man
by | April 17, 2014 | 40 Comments
Time to check back in with Big Man, the KBS melo-thriller drama about a cadre of chaebols out to steal Kang Ji-hwan’s (Incarnation of Money) heart—and by that I mean literally cheat the heart right out of his chest cavity. Apparently our resident chaebol Daniel Choi (School 2013) needs a new one (and again we’re... More »

The next batch of shows are heading into production, and with that come first stills: Here’s our first glimpse at KBS’s Big Man (which I keep hoping will change its name—I know it’s late but a girl can hope), which is the rags-to-riches-to-revenge story starring Kang Ji-hwan and Daniel Choi. With both of them playing... More »

by | February 27, 2014 | 53 Comments
Lee Da-hee (Secret, I Hear Your Voice) is said to be considering the female lead in KBS2’s upcoming Big Man. (Sigh. I guess that unfortunate title is not going away. And so, because I just can’t help it — will Lee Da-hee be woman enough for the Big Man? Womp womp.) Big Man is the... More »

…but may not take the role. I know, way to give me a cookie and take it away. Still, hearing about this potential casting definitely piqued my interest in Big Man: Jung Ryeo-won (King of Dramas, History of a Salaryman) has been offered the leading lady role in the love-and-revenge drama starring Kang Ji-hwan (Incarnation...
