KBS nixes potential Kang Ji-hwan–Moon Geun-young drama Home Alone
by | July 22, 2015 | 30 Comments
Remember Home Alone, that new drama that was aiming to pair Kang Ji-hwan and Moon Geun-young as love interests that was announced all of two days ago? Well never mind, you can go ahead and forget it now, because that’s what KBS is doing—it has backpedaled and removed the drama from the schedule. It’s a... More »

by | July 19, 2015 | 77 Comments
Good news: Kang Ji-hwan (Big Man) and Moon Geun-young (Goddess of Fire Jung-yi) may be teaming up for a new drama! Aw, I’ve missed them in good dramas! Less good news news: The drama comes from writer Kim Do-hyun of tvN’s weirdly mishmashed rom-com-murder drama My Secret Hotel, and is produced by Dream E&M, which... More »

Big Man: Episode 1
by | April 29, 2014 | 70 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 »

Big Man gets a two-week delay
by | April 3, 2014 | 34 Comments
With all the stations readying its new crop of shows for launch, KBS has decided it would rather push back the premiere of Big Man, the chaebol-stole-my-heart-and-not-in-a-good-way melodrama that was set to take over Full Sun’s soon-to-be-vacated Monday-Tuesday timeslot. So rather than starting at a disadvantage against MBC’s sageuk smash Empress Ki and SBS’s suspenseful... More »

Big Man steals hearts (literally)
by | April 1, 2014 | 41 Comments
Hmm, KBS isn’t really selling me on Big Man, which is disappointing since it marks my Kang Ji-hwan’s return to television and I miss seeing him in good things. Daniel Choi is another selling point, with his ability to be alternately assy and adorkable. How much would I love it if their chaebol face-off actually... More »

Suits and car chases in KBS’s Big Man
by | March 24, 2014 | 50 Comments
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 »

Lee Da-hee in talks for lead in Big Man
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 »

The details are falling into place for KBS2’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Big Man. Jung So-min (Can We Get Married) has been cast as the younger sister to a chaebol heir, played by Daniel Choi (School 2013). She’s grown up privileged and is used to getting her own way, but will her powers of persuasion work... More »
